"A great ride with plenty of room, and good gas mileage"5.0 starson by meridian441
Pros: This truck feels comfortable in the city and on the highway. Pop in a CD or tune in a satellite radio station and it's a joy to drive. It has ample power for towing a boat, or taking an extended road trip with four adults and luggage.
Cons: The voice command and navigation system use different buttons, but you get used to it. The cup holders in the front center console are not as accessible as they could be, as they are hidden under a retractable cover.
Summary: I recently took a trip from Chicago to Shreveport, LA. I was very impressed with the ride and handling. There was plenty of room for four adults and luggage, the wife's neck pillow and my sister's favorite blanket. The sound system is fantastic and the rear entertainment system worked flawlessly. The gas mileage actually increased as the trip progressed. We ended up averaging nearly 24mpg, and the average highway speed with cruise control was 76mph. The navigation system took us from my home in Chicago to a backwoods location in a small, unincorporated town 40 minutes outside of Shreveport without a hitch. The climate control system is divided between the driver, passenger and rear passenger areas, giving each zone maximum temperature flexibility. All the controls are placed just where they should be, and it is clear that the Honda engineers worked hard to get this vehicle right. My friends are impressed with the heated leather seats and the rear passenger sunscreens. Over all, the Pilot is a joy to drive, gets decent gas economy for a SUV, looks great and it's a Honda, so I know I will have it for a long time. It's not perfect (the oil dipstick is located in an awkward position), but it's as close to perfection as any vehicle I've had.
Thanks for your submission!
