I came accross this site somewhere on Edmunds and have been looming around getting lots of useful information. I was "this close" to purchasing a Pilot last weekend but am having problems with the car I currently own in terms of getting rid of it. (I need to fix some damage before Honda returns it to the leasing company). At least the salesguy was upfront with me about advising me to fix it myself to save me some money. I was disappointed that I didn't pick up my new car but am happy that I finally know what automobile I will be driving for a long time to come. I had originally was looking to buy the LX because on paper there didn't seem to be much of a difference. The salesguy I was dealing w/ on the phone told me that I needed to actually see the cars because there was a big difference. I was skeptical, thinking he was just trying to push me into a more expensive ride, which he was , but he was right. There was a huge difference to me in terms of exterior appearance and inside stuff. I will be leasing...wondering if anyone else does and what their terms were. Thanks!
