My wife and I are 34 and 35 respectively. Two children. 4yr. old boy and 2 yr. old girl. We are currently driving a 1994 Audi 100s Wagon and a 1994 Toyota 4Runner SR5 V6. The Audi is a wonderful drive, but an expensive fix. The 4Runner is a champ in all categories except engine power. We really like the engine in the Audi and hope the Pilot can move as quickly up I-70 for ski trips this winter! We have a Pilot Sagebrush EX-L on order from McCarty Honda in Laramie Wyo. (2 hrs. from home near Boulder). MSRP $30,980.00 Discount $250.00 D/H $139.00 so we are about $110.00 under MSRP. Also ordered Front trim, mudguards and air deflector and the dealer threw in the crossbars. While I don't feel any of us are necessarily getting a good deal, we are certainly getting a good value IMHO. I just received a production date of August 27-31. Thanks for all the great posts and information, it was extremelly valuable to my decision making process.
