Best Family SUV Ever! by Michael from Portland, Oregon on 07/29/2009. Trim: 2009 Honda Pilot Touring 4WD 5-Spd AT w/ DVD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Smooth ride and plenty of room. Love all the features! Great for the kids during those road trips. They are able to watch and listen to their movies independently from what I am listening to up front. I have also hooked up their Xbox and they love that they can play all their favorite games. Great family vehicle!
Cons: Not a lot of trunk space when third row seats are up. I will need to invest in an overhead cargo carrier once we go on our next family road trip. It would also be nice if the seats folded flat when hauling items.
Overall review: My next SUV will be a Honda Pilot!

Comfortable and spacious by Bruinschamps on 04/11/2012. Trim: 2009 Honda Pilot EX-L 4WD 5-Spd AT, Owned 1 year.
Pros: spacious and offers versatility with the 3rd row.
Cons: Not very fun to drive. One professional review called it cumbersome to drive. I agree. My remote doesn't work too well. The little handle in the trunk that opens the secret compartment broke after a month. Seemed a bit flimsy.
Overall review: Overall, a fine SUV.

Love My Pilot by ATY in Maryland on 04/10/2012. Trim: 2009 Honda Pilot EX-L 4WD 5-Spd AT, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I purchased my Pilot in Jan. I did plenty of research before buying. I am happy with this vehicle. The driving experience is wonderful. Plenty of utility space with seats that fold flat. I am a home owner and needed the space for trips to home depot, but did not want a pickup. Gas mileage is great in my opinion for a vehicle of this size.
Cons: So far I am satisfied with the vehicle and have no complaints.
Overall review: I highly reccomend this Pilot to anyone looking for an excellent driving vehicle, passenger space, utility space and plenty of features. Mine is the EX-L model.

Best SUV of its Class! by Retired in Bonney Lake on 08/12/2009. Trim: 2009 Honda Pilot EX-L 4WD 5-Spd AT w/ DVD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: We bought this vehicle four weeks ago. Our previous vehicle was a 2005 Honda Odyssey. We took a 1,000 mile plus trip through central Oregon. We were very impressed with the performance and gas mileage for the size and comfort of the vehicle. On several ocassion we had our two grandkids and their parents with us, 6 total, and the room and comfort were just great. Access to the third row seats is amazing. The AC works great, even on days when the outdoor temperature is 107 degress. We have owned several Hondas and will continue to be loyal owners.
Cons: I can't really think of anything.
Overall review: Great car, good value and it is a Honda, the car everyone else is trying to be!

Pilot, Ride Ready by Honda fan from Coeur d' Alene on 08/09/2009. Trim: 2009 Honda Pilot EX-L 4WD 5-Spd AT w/ DVD, Owned 1 year.
Pros: 2009 Honda Pilot, my 6th Honda since converting from GM in 2004. Go for the EX-L AWD with rear entertainment. Doing so will get you a 512 watt surround sound system that is simply amazing. This is the first of my 6 Honda's that was actually built in the United States. The part content is also primarily US. I must say that the fit and finish of this vehicle surpasses the other Honda vehicles I have owned. Congrats, Honda! By far the smoothest and quietest ride available on an SUV. Honda has put a tremendous amount of thought into optioning this vehicle and they have done a tremendous job! If only I had chosen Navigation.
Cons: I honestly can not think of anything.
Overall review: If you are looking for a reliable, dependable all around sweet ride, this is a must have. A great improvement over prior versions of the Pilot. I traded my '08 Accord reluctantly as I needed something that would get me through all the snow more efficiently. The Accord is a really fun drive and I was nervous to make the switch. Honda has not let me down.
