Honda Pilot Lemon Odds and Nada Odds

Other sources of Honda Pilot reliability information provide only averages, which can conceal as much as they reveal. So we also report the percentage of Honda Pilots with no repairs at all in the past year and the percentage of Honda Pilots that are lemons (required three or more repair trips in the past year). These figures might surprise you.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to closely track Honda Pilot lemon odds as the cars age. Others can be over a year behind. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Honda Pilot has been recently.

Honda's has a great reputation, so design your car to fit a 6'5" person and I'll buy one, okay, get a touch screen navigation system, move the glove box above the knees, and kill the road noise - and more beige interior choices. see full Honda Pilot review
