Best Reason to Buy the Honda Pilot: Rear seat room & comfort
I do like the room the pilot has. Great for families with kids. We owned a subaru outback and we were cramped.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Honda Pilot: Materials & workmanship
We love our Honda pilot but after having it out in the rain and getting a large puddle of water at your feet from poor workmanship and sealing. We will not be buying another Honda because the dealers refuse to rectify the faulty workmanship. Hundreds of other people have the same issue as seen on all message boards on this problem. All it would take is for honda to take the fender off and seal seams and holes left open in assembly. I plan to do it myself because they want to charge you 300 for repair. Should have been a recall on this issue due to the fact mold and mildew can build up and cause medical issues down the road if left too long. And for the amount of people with this same issue.

Other Reasons to Buy the Honda Pilot: Fuel economy, Ride smoothness

Best Reason Not to Buy the Honda Pilot: Front seat room
The front seat did not go back far enough for a very tall person, headroom was good, head rest pushes your head forward which is horrible. Passenger seat has a glove box near ankles which hits your shins. I guess they used midgets to design the car.

Other Reasons Not to Buy the Honda Pilot: Handling, Exterior styling, Rear seat room & comfort, Brand reputation & image

Best Reason to Buy the Honda Pilot: Rear seat room & comfort
Roomy and very adjustable.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Honda Pilot: Front seat support & comfort
This seat was not made for long distance driving. The armrest on the door feels cushy, but after a couple of hours your elbow is pretty much on hard plastic.

Other Reasons to Buy the Honda Pilot: Driving position & visibility

Best Reason to Buy the Honda Pilot: Cargo capacity
Cargo area folds down completely flat, can be configured many ways to fit cargo and passengers. The cargo length is 6 1/2 feet.

Best Reason Not to Buy the Honda Pilot: Dealer practices
The price in canada is still $10,000 more than in the U.S. We only bought because of a $ 4,000 rebate on the remaining 2011 models. Honda prohibits U.S. dealers from selling new Hondas to Canadians. If you buy a used Honda in the U.S. the warrantyis void

Best Reason to Buy the Honda Pilot: Exterior styling
The beauty of the Pilot is that it has a classic two box truck look. It is a style that some consider dated, but I think it is how a CUV or SUV should look.
