:2: We got it! :2:
Picked her up later than I wanted, about 4:00PM. It still needs the towing package and the bug deflector. The salesman said the bug deflector should be in later this week along with one of the coolers for the towing package. We will get them installed later on.
After seeing her sitting there, all shiny and ... how can I put this???
The word "Majestic", comes to mind.
I could not imagine that I got her without getting all the accessories. Now I have to wait for a while to get rest of her.
She seems so ..... incomplete.
No wonder most of this board seems to have the EX model. Maybe in a few years a second one could be an EX.
Now, as for the drive..... Fantastic performance. We took it to Carefree, just to see how it performed on the hills. No Problem. WE might go up to flagstaff tomorrow. Just to see how it handles the climb north of Black Canyon City and the hill at Camp Verde. But from what I've experienced so far, sail on through.
My wife works in an office downtown with one of those parking garages w/ fairly tight hair pin turning ramps in it. SO we took it there today. It went right up those ramps with no problem. Nice tight turns. The only thing scary was those ramps are fairly narrow and I thought it would rub on the sides of the ramp. but it handled so well it was not an issue. Even my wife didn't have a problem with it, although she was more cautious than I was.
My wife will be the main driver of the Pilot. I have a work van that I drive most of the week that comes home with me. So on the weekends and holidays I will be all the driving. Which is just fine by me.
My wife will also be taking our Isuzu Trooper in to work on alternating days. Just to keep the miles of the Pilot.
Just so you know how much we drove it today, we already put on a hundred miles. Since you live here in phoenix, you know how quickly the miles can add up in our city.
So it definately is worth the wait, the performance, the ride, the comfort and the feeling of pride is definitely awesome.
Well Copperpoppy, If I don't see you on the board tomorrow, congratulations! We hope you enjoy your new pilot as much as we do. :7:
