Our 2009 Pilot replaced a 2001 Odyssey. I did not want another minivan. I never really wanted a minivan ever - but my husband won that battle 5 years ago when we got the Odyssey. He is now driving my 2001 CR-V that I've driven for 11 years and I am happy in my Pilot.

Just replaced my 1999 Toyota Land Cruiser with 125K a 2009 Pilot Touring with 50K. First car in 20 years that wasn't a Land Cruiser and I think I'm going to like the change.

The pilot is equally spacious with far more technology. The LC felt like a more substantial vehicle and was a little quieter on the road. The pilot gas mileage in the city is almost 25% better (12.5 to 16) and I expect a much bigger improvement on the highway.

For us, we had a 95 dodge grand caravan awd that the pilot is replacing.

Primay criteria was:
1. Safety
2. All wheel drive capability like the gc awd.
3. Fuel economy, capacity, reliability, resale value, and everything else.

Guess we were most interested in safety.

I've been to a lot of forums with many posts but I think this thread beats all of them -10 year old thread - wow - nothing wrong with that. My 2010 Pilot replaced my 2001 Durango -that was about 2 years ago.

Replaced my black 2011 EX-L (11,800 miles) for a blue 2012 EX-L RES. Four kids who are accustomed to my wife's 2011 Odyssey with all the bells and whistles we're more than thrilled. My original goal was to go a bit smaller and more fuel efficient since we already have a family mover, but I felt tight in everything else. Once I had the bug, I ended up right back where I started and couldn't be happier with my decision. By the way, my 2010 was a replacement for my 2005 EX-L.

2008 Acura RDX. I got tired of paying premium gas, MPG sucked, and it loves to eat gas (turbo). Also, there's not enough space specially when you are going on a road trip with 2 kids, wife and a bunch of baggage.

Replaced a 2007 Altima Hybrid. With the baby on the way and a cross country move coming up, the half trunk of the hybrid wouldn't cut it. Now we have room for the baby as well as another one or two in the future. Right now we don't drive too much, so getting half the gas mileage hasn't hurt too badly. We went 1.5 months between fill ups from the start of March to last weekend and it still only took 12 gallons.

Default Didn't Replace Anything

Just added this one to the fleet. Have 3 step kids and a 5 year old daughter, needed the extra room. My step son is almost licensed so we kept the car we would have traded in (An '02 Camry SE). The Camry feels like it's new even with 122K miles on it.

I drive an '02 Maxima GLE with only 83K miles. - More fun to drive than the Pilot but far less useful.

Also, wanted the 4WD because normally we get a few significant snowfalls every winter.

Post 2006 Volvo V50

We traded our 2006 V50 for the 2012 Ex-L 4wd (PMM). For a wagon the V50 is a small car. It was my daily driver and now I drive our '05 Acura TSX (even smaller) and the wife drives the Pilot. Happy to get rid of the Volvo, even happier with the Pilot!

2002 Acura 3.5RL to 2006 Pilot EXL. Same mpg, much more room and cheaper gas. With a baby on the way, wanted to get something with a little more room.

Default Replaced our Accord with the Pilot

We replaced our 2007 Accord with our 2003 Pilot. Went back 4 model years and it has more miles, BUT, there is room for our 3 growing teenage daughters and I feel it is much sfer for our Alaskan roads. We plan on letting our oldest drive it next year with the other kids back and forth to school and basketball practice and such. We love the Pilot so much we plan on adding antoher one to our fleet next year. Hopefully we'll be able to afford a 2007 or up since we want to pay cash for our vehicles

Replaced a 2002 Acura MDX (which I LOVED) with the 2012 Touring 4wd Pilot.

Went to look at new MDX, didn't really like the curvy, lack of space, new ones plus premium fuel required . . . while I was talking to the Acura salesman one of their detailers parked a used Pilot right out front - I was hooked! Left there and went to a Honda dealer to look at the 2012's, so far I love our Pilot.
