What Our Members Are Saying about the Price of the the Honda Pilot

Price of the Honda Pilot: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
20094dr SUV 250-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
I was able to negotiate a very reasonable price on this pilot. This made the payments very reasonable compared to many comperable SUVs.
20084dr SUV 244-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic AWD
with the knee jerk reaction against SUVs in US made many SUVs affordable. Pilot was unfairly clubbed clubbed with all the gas guzzlers and that made some very good deals possible.
20074dr SUV 244-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic AWD
I paid about $2,000.00 less for the Pilot than a comparably equipped Highlander.
20054dr SUV 255-horsepower 3.5L V6

WE BOUGHT IT USED AND GOT A GREAT DEAL.

How it is so much more expensive than in the US
20094dr SUV 250-horsepower 3.5L V6

Next size up from Rav4/CRV in Honda lineup and was considerably more expensive than Toyota Highlander.

High price
20084dr SUV 244-horsepower 3.5L V6

Too high; not worth the money.
