2011 Honda Pilot LX 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I have owned my Pilot for 7 months and 6600 miles. It just got the first oil change. The car performs very well on the Interstate. The MPG's are about 14.5 city and on the interstate I have experiences tanks averaging 18 up to 25.5 ( all with AC on). I have been only using Premium gas.
I do not understand the large MPG variation on the interstate. It could be gas quality.

The VCM engine has performed just fine without any complaint. I do notice when the engine is in 3 cylinder mode.

Best Features

The overall size of the car provides a very spacious interior. My wife loves the rear AC controls. The road handling and ride is very smooth and stable feeling on the interstate.

Worst Features

They could have taken a few more minutes to assemble the interior. The fabric on the doors is sloppy looking around the door handles. Some of the joints could match up better.

Hello, may I ask if there's a difference, other than the price, in using Premium gas on the Honda Pilot LX even if it's designed to run fine on Regular Unleaded? Is the mileage better with Premium? Thanks.
