2020 Honda Pilot Overview

The 2020 Honda Pilot is a mid-size 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.

Six trims are available: LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, Elite, and Black Edition. The new Black Edition comes with unique styling for the exterior and interior.

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.

Not the Same Honda Quality

by Deagle from Clarkston MI | January 20, 2021

I had a 2012 Honda Pilot for 8 years and 190,000 miles. Great car, wonderfully reliable. So when it was time to replace it I had no choice but to get another Pilot. The good: The new 9 speed transmission really makes a difference in accelerating and performance. It is much more fun to drive. The bad: Little quality issues. Like when it downshifts it makes a weird noise that the dealer says they can't figure out what it is. No codes means no problem I guess. The drivers window barely goes up. Any other window will be up and this will have 2/3 yet to go. Had a snow storm this morning. 45 minutes later and the front window would still not defrost. The window washer at 50 mph will not hit the windshield (and there is no adjustment as they are fixed to the hood). Half of the time the remote won't let you open the door when you walk up to the car like it should. Just too many little things that Honda didn't used to let happen. It does drive well and has a lot of room. Just Honda seems to have let the quality slide. I'll try a Toyota Highlander next.

Horrible cracklings noises

by SadAtHonda from El Paso, Texas | December 01, 2020

My new to me 2020 Honda Pilot Elite had 10,400 miles on it when I bought it. It was immaculate. Fully loaded. Warranty up to 100k miles. I thought it was perfect for our family. I got about 2-3 hours into a 7 hour my drive and suddenly it started sounding like my car was snap, crackling and popping. It was a mix between pebbles hitting the windshield and static. I pulled off in the middle of no where, couldn’t find anything so I drove on. 30-45 minutes later...Boom. Hardcore hail storm on a tin roof sounding noise surrounds me, loud and terrifying. My initial reaction was that I hit something. I slammed on my brakes which was not the right thing to do and was almost rear ended. All my dash lights went out then back on, then flickered. I called the dealer. They called Honda’s service department. They called me back and told me I could bring the car back and they’ve void the contract. The dealer was great, but I’m still really sad and shook. Apparently this is a known defect of which there’s no formal acknowledgment of, or permanent solution to. I spent 4-5 months picking the perfect car. And it was a literal lemon. I ended up driving back to the dealer, returning the car.
