2016 Honda Pilot: Monthly Update for October 2016

by Kelly Hellwig, Managing Editor

2016 Honda Pilot

Where Did We Drive It?
October was a big month for our 2016 Honda Pilot test SUV, as we added over 2,500 miles to its odometer. More than half of those miles were accumulated during Automotive Editor Mark Takahashi's weeklong road trip through Northern California and Nevada — an excursion that included three men and three hunting dogs. The rest of the month, the Pilot was employed for more typical daily tasks, such as school carpool duty and around-town errands.

2016 Honda Pilot: Quick, But Not Always

by Jason Kavanagh, Engineering Editor on June 30, 2016

2016 Honda Pilot

A reasonable person cannot consider our long-term 2016 Honda Pilot to be slow. In our testing it had a sub-7 second 0-60 time and traversed the quarter mile in fewer than 15 seconds. This is plenty rapid for a three-row SUV.

And yet...

2016 Honda Pilot: Best Armrest Ever

Ed Hellwig, Executive Editor on May 17, 2016

One unique feature on our 2016 Honda Pilot is this ridiculously simple yet effective adjustable armrest. Every time I use it, I wonder why more SUVs and crossover don't use a similar design.

2016 Honda Pilot: 10,000 Miles in No Time

by Travis Langness, Automotive Editor on March 28, 2016

2016 Honda Pilot

In less than five months, our long-term 2016 Honda Pilot has already hit the 10,000-mile mark, nearly a month ahead of schedule. Comfy, road-trip-friendly vehicles are popular around here so that's not a massive surprise, but even this big Honda has seen more than its fair share of action.

2016 Honda Pilot: Family Day Trip and Seven-Passenger Tested

by Brent Romans, Senior Automotive Editor on January 25, 2016

2016 Honda Pilot

We have two very capable three-row family haulers in our long-term fleet right now: the 2015 Kia Sedona minivan and our 2016 Honda Pilot. Dan Edmunds recently drove the Pilot up to Oregon and came away with some mixed opinions. This past weekend, I took the Pilot for my own family road trip.

It was just a 300-mile day trip to visit friends but it still proved useful for getting more commentary on the Pilot's strengths and weaknesses.

2016 Honda Pilot: Heated Steering Wheel Does Not Work

by Scott Oldham, Editor in Chief on December 18, 2015

2016 Honda Pilot

We've been banging around in our long-term 2016 Honda Pilot for a little more than a month now and we have our first mechanical issue. I wouldn't call it serious, but it's certainly annoying on a brand new vehicle that's been driven 3,000 miles.

This morning the Pilot's heated steering wheel was a no-show.

2016 Honda Pilot: How Does It Handle Five Passengers and 1,000 Miles?

by Travis Langness, Social Media Editor on November 25, 2015

2016 Honda Pilot

I wasted no time asking Edmunds car-czar Mike Schmidt for the keys to our newest long-term vehicle, the 2016 Honda Pilot. Before it had been in our garage for a week, I requested the six-passenger crossover for a 1,000-mile road trip. Once Mike forked over the keys, I packed my running gear, picked up four of my friends and headed north towards Sacramento.

2016 Honda Pilot: Introduction

by Dan Frio, Automotive Editor on November 13, 2015

2016 Honda Pilot

Is Honda finally on the way back? For years, the automaker that owned the 90's with small, sporty and spirited cars (some funneled through the Acura brand, sure) has seemingly stumbled its way through the last decade with a string of sleepy, also-ran designs and powertrains. Top-sellers like the CR-V, Odyssey and Accord have kept the brand relevant, but hardly exciting. That malaise even affected the Pilot, Honda's three-row alternative to the minivan.
