A pilot's Pilot

Typical Honda quality- which is to say, "Great" and "Dependable". No glitz or worthless frills- which is to say, "Functional". Looks nice. Drives well. Handles better than some cars. Decent fuel economy, if not towing. Performance is OK, but a few more ponies couldn't hurt. AWD is fabulous for those areas that get snow. Easily seats 8, but those in the third row better not be 6 ft tall. Will likely replace this vehicle with another Pilot, when it reaches 110K miles (currently, 60K).

I've had my Pilot for about 4 years now. I'm writing this review as I get ready to move onto my next car. All in all, I've been very happy with my Pilot (4WD, EX-L with DVD). It's GREAT for family trips as it holds all 5 of us and our junk while keeping the boys occupied in the back. It's been a workhorse and hasn't complained once. I'm moving on because I'm looking for something newer with a little better MPG, but I'm still considering the Pilot for my next car. We've hauled as many as 7 people on a few different occassions and the Pilot handled it well. I'm not a huge fan of the look, but it's a small price to pay for a quality car. Would do business with again. A+++

I'm on my 6th Honda. I've had 1986 Prelude, 1991 Prelude, 1997 Accord, 2000 Civic, 2005 Pilot and now a 2007 Pilot. *Dark gray interior hides spills and mishaps by little ones *Third row seat allows to fit 7 people in vehicle *Automatic up/down driver's window *Extra pull-out on driver and passenger visor helps when sun is shining through and the regular visor can't seem to block it *Huge console area for easy access and storage *6 disc CD changer in dash *Domed shape mirror for quick view of back seat to check on little ones *Plenty of storage bins on back of driver and passenger seats as well as for the 3rd row seats

Before buying this car, I looked at a couple other brands, Nissan, Toyota, and Chevy. The Pilot beat them hands down. Nice tight, well built, interior and exterior. Great textures in the interior, comfortable seats, outstanding space utilization. Option this one out correctly and you can undercut an Acura by $5000 and have basically the same vehicle--probably better looking, too. We got caught in the snow/ice in New Mexico last January and this thing was one of the few vehicles still moving. During that one trip the Pilot paid for itself. Add decent fuel milage (regular unleaded gas, too), fail-safe reliability, and the performance, and you have a winner.

The Honda Pilot is a wonderful ride. It has all the features of a higher priced luxury suv, without the price tag of one. I have heard complaints about gas mileage but if not driven like a mad man you the mileage is where it ought to be. Resale is outstanding. With this car it is impossible to lose. Me and my brother bought EX-L's together on the same day. We have had no complaints mechanically or otherwise. I would recommend this car to anyone looking for extra room and (I am sorry to say) sick of bieng shortchanged when trading or selling an american made counter part.

I bought the Pilot with the Navigation system. The back-up camera on the navigation system is awesome. The Navigation system has given accurate directions for everything so far. The satellite radio is clear and has plenty of channels. The exterior color of the car is beautiful, its called Dark Cherry Pearl, you must see it to appreciate it, I have had multiple compliments on it. The interior is camel colored and has plenty of room. I have had no problems with this car at all mechanically or otherwise. I would recommend this SUV to everyone. I did months of research on small to medium SUV's and found that this is the best overall SUV for the money.

We recently purchased a 2007 Pilot EX-L RES. Great car so far. I drive an CR-V w/176K on it, expect to do even more on the Pilot. Great for travelling. Gives me great comfort with all the safty features it has. I feel my wife and daughter are up and out of the way. Love it so far!

We have owned our Pilot for 3 months and love it even more now than when we purchased it. Originally planning to purchase a CRV, but preferred the Pilot. Drives super solid, smooth and rattle free. Hope to keep it in the family for many years. Gas mileage could be better, however, the Pilot is a pretty big vehicle. Averaging about 15 in the city. Planning a trip next week of about 700 miles. Hope the mileage is between 23 or 25 mpg. Feel safe in the Pilot. Vehicle feels planted to the ground. Can not wait till the road trip.

I love my 2007 Pilot. I actually like the exterior styling more than the new ones. the 2007 models have a more boxy beefy look. The new ones look like a mini van in my opinion. I have over 177k miles on it and the only issues I have had are with the hvac fan making a weird vibrating noise every now and then. You can go wrong with Honda when it comes to reliability.
