TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the 2015 Honda Pilot

2015 Honda Pilot Reliability And Durability: Neutral
YearComment
2016 Since it's so new, the 2016 Honda Pilot's reliability is not yet known. But the related Acura MDX has been glitchy, and car owners have been complaining about the nine-speed automatic employed in the Touring and Elite in a number of different cars. In contrast, the Toyota Highlander has a proven record, making it a safer bet. full 2016 Honda Pilot review

We had owned a Honda Accord and a Honda CRV previously, and so we expected this Pilot to be as well built and trouble free. Not so. We've had multiple problems with the HVAC system. For example, the a/c turns itself on despite manual override. The color of the bumper is aging differently (yellowing) compared to the body. Motors in the side-view mirrors have repeatedly failed. full 2012 Honda Pilot review

TrueDelta Reviews the Gas Mileage of the 2015 Honda Pilot

2015 Honda Pilot Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2016 Aided by cylinder deactivation while cruising, the 2015 Honda Pilot's fuel economy figures were about average in the class: 18 MPG city, 25 MPG highway with front-wheel drive (FWD) and 17/24 with all-wheel drive (AWD). For 2016, a reduction in curb weight, an updated engine, and a sixth transmission ratio bump the ratings to 19/27 with FWD and 18/26 with AWD. The Touring and Elite trims include a nine-speed automatic that adds another MPG to the city ratings, tying the best-in-class Nissan Pathfinder. The Toyota Highlander doesn't even do as well with its base four-cylinder engine (20/25) and lags with its V6 (19/25 with FWD, 18/24 with AWD). In hybrid form the Highlander only has much of an edge in city driving (27/28). The Ford Explorer is competitive with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine (19/28 with FWD, 18/26 with AWD), but with a V6 falls well short of the Pilot's fuel efficiency. As do the GM crossovers. In my suburban driving the Pilot's trip computer typically reported low 20s but as high as 27.7. This is similar to the Pathfinder and a few MPG better than the Highlander. On a 70-MPH hgihway the trip computer reported an average of 26 MPG. full 2016 Honda Pilot review

City fuel economy is lousy (average about 11 mpg), but our highway numbers are great for such a huge vehicle, particularly if we stay at 65 mph or slower. I've been able to sustain 29 mpg on a flat road at 55 mph. full 2012 Honda Pilot review
