Who is Flying This Thing?
Pros: 3rd row seats (which fold flat). Consumer Reports "Best Buy".
Cons: Price. Car Dealers can't keep 'em on the lot.
Just what I was looking for in an SUV. Comfortable, roomy, nice handling, safer than most. Read More at Epinions.com

Want an SUV but concerned about their Safety?
Pros: Based on Honda Odyssey and Acura MDX, it should set the standard for SUV safety.
Cons: More expensive and hard to find than some competition. Won't fit 8 adults in comfort.
Even as a first year model, Pilot should be on the short list for any safety-conscious family that needs an SUV instead of a minivan, wagon or sedan. Read More at Epinions.com
