Great car

We love our Pilot it’s great to drive. The interior is very stylish and comfortable. We only wish the passenger seat would go back further

Best car we have ever owned.

This car is very comfortable, has space for traveling, handles well, great safety features, for size of vehicle gets great gas mileage, and performs well.

I would rather drive my 24 year old Toyota

Honda Pilot is garbage. Here's why. First mechanical. The transmission is slow to engage when shifting. I have to wait 3 seconds before it actually wants to go in drive or reverse. Second road noise. Noisiest car I've ever been in, and it's not just the tires. Rear suspension sounds like someone is beating a bass drum every time I go over even the smallest bump. Road noise on highway is so loud that you can't hear an audio book on the stereo unless the volume is turned up super high. Which brings me to the stereo. This is absolutely,hands down, the worst stereo in any car since 1986. Google it. The sound is terrible. The system is so bad there's a class action suit against Honda. Finally, then interior quality is sub par. I'm used to a Toyota. We traded in a Sienna to get the Pilot. The I can feel the metal brace in the arm rest. It's that bad. The range of adjustment in the seat is minimal. The lumbar support might as well be non existent. Quite honestly this car doesn't have any rewarding points. Save your money and get a Toyota or Acura. Or get something cheaper. Hard pass on any future Honda for me.

2018 Honda Pilot Overview

The 2018 Honda Pilot is a midsize SUV that seats seven to eight passengers across three rows. Inside, the Pilot’s second row can be configured with either a pair of captain’s chairs or a bench seat. The bench seat comes with a folding mechanism that operates with one button to give easy access to the third row.

Five trims are available: the LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, and Elite.

Under the hood, the Pilot is powered by a standard 280-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The Touring and Elite models receive a nine-speed automatic. Front-wheel drive comes standard, while all-wheel drive is optional.
