The Right Car for Me | TrueDelta


Deciding between a 2015/2016 Yukon/Tahoe and the 2016 Honda Pilot Elite. Love the interior feel of both. Worried about many reports I have seen online on glitchy things in the Honda, as well as the poor reports on the radio/nav interface i.e. no knobs. The lack of knobs REALLY bothers me. We test-drove one and when I tried to turn down the radio, it turned all the way up and wouldnt turn down. Had to turn the radio off to get it to stop. Car had <10 miles on it! I would expect the Pilot to be super-reliable, but as this is a new, totally changed model, I'm concernced. GMC seems to have a great track record on on longevity as well, and these newer models, while certainly upgraded, are not a complete change. Do you have a 2016 Honda Pilot Elite (or Touring)? Any issues? Same Tahoe or Yukon.

If you can wait for the 2017 Pilot, it should be less glitchy. With recent Hondas and Acuras it's often best to wait for the second model year. What I do to control audio volume on recent Hondas is use the steering wheel control (which I rarely use in cars with knobs).

My issue with the Tahoe is that it's so much larger on the outside than on the inside, with a really tight third row.

You should also take a look at the Dodge Durango. While I'm wary of FCA reliability, the Durango has been good in our survey. Much better third row and better handling than the Tahoe.

Chevy Tahoe LTZ with 25,000 miles is available for $49,000. This had the most space and offered the best fuel economy this side of a minivan when my brother in law was looking. Skip the Toyota trucks as their fuel economy is in the teens!
