Why Not the 2012 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.


The car drove well, I'd use the word "underwhelming" to describe the experience. The road noise was so bad on the highway that you have to raise your voice. Transmission is smooth, but possibly underpowered engine.

Exterior styling

The car is a big box, which I would have been fine with if they actually had comfortable driver and passenger positions. The amount of headroom is excellent, but I'd be curious what the drag coefficient is? That's probably what causes the terrib

Rear seat room & comfort

I actually thought the limited edition of the pilot had a nice leather seats and I liked the position of the video screen. The only part that bothered me was access to the third row was circus like.

Brand reputation & image

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.
