Only one vehicle that typically gets me out of my Pilot.Pilot-1 said:
3 vehicles stand the best chance of getting me out of the Pilot -- the 2005 CR-V, 2004 Pathfinder Armada, and the upcoming 2005 Nissan Pathfinder.
Funny story related to this. The Pilot replaced a 96 Blazer. When we were deciding on a new car for the wife, I suggested we go and check out the Trailblazer. Loved the Power in the Trailblazer........hated the ammenities, console. Seemed that for 32K, all I got was a big motor, and nothing else. No 3rd row standard.......etc. The wife and I then went and drove the Pilot for her, and she is loving every minute of it!dandbtucker said:I was at the Chevy dealer waiting on m y salesman (good cop) and his finance manager (bad cop) to do the price game with me. They were letting me cool down or heat up, I don't know what one....I was waiting drinking a coplimentry soda...when I saw a old friend on the Honda lot next door. He had sold us our last Honda (Civic) so I went to say hi!
He asked what I was doing on the Chevy lot and then showed me the Pilot.
Never went back to the Chevy lot...but they sure came down in price after I left the lot and kept calling for days...
There was no comparison with the TrailBlazer after driving the Pilot. It was like love at first sight!
Ooops, guess I spoke too soon. He just told me that he has a problem with his sunroof. Its stuck and wouldn't openyolk said:...Reluctantly, he went with the Trailblazer EXT version which afforded greater leg room in the third row. He has no complains so far, but I thought the interior trim just does not feel as refined as the Pilot's.
Autoweek's estimated trade-in value for a year old TB with an original sticker of $35k+ was interesting - less than $19k. Whoa baby.slider71 said:I looked at the TB too....but the interior is cheesy, and you can't by a GM in the first model year.
Think Consumer Report was even remotely off the mark?
In the shop for 50 days! And that was with the "pull" of an auto publication to get things moving.
