Pilot Touring 4x4
White Diamond Pearl
Bought as a replacement (kind of) for a tired 200K 1998 Chevy Astro to gain AWD capability. The Pilot has better legroom for the driver and passenger, some improved seats, heated seats/mirrors, but not more overall room, nor does it have as much towing capability. It gets about the same mpg as the 4.3 L V6 in the Chevy, albeit with 500 lbs extra weight and the AWD. The Pilot sits lower, handles better, but doesn't have the visibility nor the cargo carrying capacity of the Astro with the 2 bench seats removed and the flat (vs. sloped Honda) deck.
2011 Honda Pilot Touring 4x4 (White Diamond Pearl)
This 3.5 L V-6 still requires a timing belt change around 105K miles. At least the oil filter is visible and accessible.
Storage well dividers.
Running boards, roof rack cross bars.
Good 6 CD player and FM/AM radio with nice audio set-up controls. Useless XM radio (XM should be free). Useless rear entertainment system - screen is too small and the road noise is too much at highway speeds the one time it was tried. I suppose the volume could be turned up to make u deaf, but really, a laptop PC does better and is bigger (Kids are gone). The 120V outlet allows the charger to keep the PC going.
