Had my first off-road experience in the Pilot last night. I had to transverse a large construction site area that had many multi-level pitches, turns, ruts, bumps, etc. (hey, that's usually as wild as it gets in suburbia!). I'm not sure what I was expecting, but the suspension felt tighter than I anticipated (maybe I thought it would be like floating on a cloud per the normal ride). Regardless, the Pilot performed like a champ and I felt quite manly and in control - which isn't always the case in real life.
