Reviewed: 2009 Honda Pilot

4dr SUV 250-horsepower 3.5L V6 5-speed automatic AWD

Why the 2009 Honda Pilot?

Reliability & durability

Honda offers very reliable vehicles and I know first had as I typically do many of the maintenance items.

Materials & workmanship

All the materials of high quality, much better than any competitors that we looked at.

Rear seat room & comfort

It is absolutely the right size for our needs.

Feature availability

The Touring was simply a package that included everything we need.

Discounts & incentives

At the time of purchase, the incentive put the Pilot into a very competitive category.

Why Not the 2009 Honda Pilot?

Cargo capacity

The cargo space in the back raise up to the rear of the back seat and the towing is adequate, but you have to remember this is a car chassis made for an SUV.

Controls and instruments

There simply too many controls and took a long time to learn. I still catch myself trying to find the A/C off button.

Fuel economy

The fuel economy is decent, but there is always room for improvement.

Insurance cost

I guess my reasoning for picking this topic area is that the insurance quote is okay and the vehicles hold their values relatively well for an SUV in this economy.
