2005 Honda Pilot OWNER RATINGS & REVIEWS
Write a review
Great buy. Great SUV.
I like everything about my Honda Pilot. It has plenty of room for five adults and luggage. It does very well on short trips or cross country and mpg is pretty good, about 360 miles per tank fill. It is now twelve years old, and I've only had to replace the tires (once), battery (once), and brakes (three times). Driving is extremely comfortable and ergonomic. The heated seats are great as well as the ability to put them in nearly any position that you can configure. Even a nearly flat lay down in the event of finding yourself in need of a nap. There is plenty of front seat storage, and you can keep your sunglasses in a drop down tray that is easy to work when driving. The heated outside mirrors are nice when there is frost or icing. The second-row seat has a pull down for passengers to place their drinks or snacks while watching their DVD with Honda-supplied wireless headphones. The radio/CD player works very well with great sound quality. Although you cannot fit an adult in the third seat comfortably, there is still plenty of room for small children.
Needs more space
The Pilot is not a huge SUV so it's pretty good on gas. It looks nice enough, but it's pretty small for a third row SUV. It's not a really expensive car to purchase used. Overall, it's a decent mid-level quality vehicle that will get you where you need to go. It does hold its value fairly well as long as you keep the mileage low.
Overall this is the most reliable automobile I have ever owned. My Pilot is going on 300k miles and I have had no major hiccups. It has survived 13 New England winters without giving me a hassle and still holds up to this day. I love the plain look of the exterior, nice and normal, a practical shape. I can't stand the look of the new Pilot or any other modern crossover SUVs.
