I Picked up my Pilot from David Hobbs Honda In Glendale. Everything went smoothly. I love my my truck. I traded in my '99 Passport on it ,what a world of difference. In November I went in to trade it (Passport) for a CR-V, and the salesmen there told me that there was possably a new "Honda- built" truck coming out in the summer. So I waited on getting the CR-V and in the beginning of January I put money down on the Pilot. First on the list :) . Those 6 months took forever, it was worse after the auto shows cause then I knew what it looked like and I still couldn't have it for 3 more monthes. Well the wait was well worth it. This is the best honda I have owned yet!

I bet.........

So is yours the white pilot?
I used to deal with Hobbs (for 7 years) then I switched to Boyland because the old manager of Hobbs (John Smith) is there.
Glad to hear you got your pilot and you aer happy!
Later,
Pat

Congrats mugen660 and HELLO from Appleton! :31:

Our Pilot should arrive in a few weeks but for now we're anxiously waiting. :20:

Looking forward to the roomy interior (a Civic and an Integra in our stable now) and that AWD in the lovely Wisconsin snow.

Cheese :D

Bring on the snow!

Thank you Cheesehead for bringing that up, .......SNOW! I cant wait. There is nothing better than All-Wheel drive in the snow. I used to have a Audi Turbo Quattro, and I would take the days off work when it would snow, and if it would snow at night I would go out driving untill the plows came out. There is just somthing about sliding around a corner with all four wheels spinning and having complete control (well almost complete control:eek: ). Im sure there is a few people out here that can relate!?

Snow!

Feels weird to be talking about snow at the end of June, but I also am looking forward to zooming around in the fluffy white stuff!

Purchased my Redrock EX-L from Honda City (we're in Brookfield). We just had new neibors move in down the street and they have a Black EX-L with the chrome bumper garnish. Anyone from these posts?

Best SUV out there IMHO. Except for MAYBE the MDX, but I decided that utility was more important than luxury (and $7,000 for "stuff")!!!!!

Happy Piloting!

Sorry but I can't say with any enthusiam that I look forward to the snow. If it were up to me the Southwest would be my home but the wife likes the change of seasons. I keep explaining that there are mountains if you want to see some snow but that just doesn't seem to convince her. :3:

Here in Appleton the snow plowing is pretty good but the surrounding communities wait until the snow STOPS to begin plowing :14: so the Pilot will come in very handy.

I don't know if I'll be pulling any power slides around corners in the Pilot but more power to you :)

Cheese :D

Green with envy

Hey, I'm from Madison... I just test drove a black EX today and loved it! Unfortunatley I won't be in any position to take home a new Pilot for about a year so I'll just have to hang back and live through you guys.

We finally got our Pilot two days ago in Appleton. I haven't seen any others on the road around here yet. It is trouble free thus far. No window scrunching, left side clicks, leaking washer nozzles. The only thing I have noticed is a lot of brake dust buildup on the wheels. I think the dealer sprayed the dealer with armor-all when they sprayed the tires. INSTANT BRAKE DUST MAGNET :14:

We're racking up the miles (52 as of today :D ) and have been driving around just to drive. We LOVE it! Yes, we have Pilotitis. :20: :20:

Having Pilotitis I can a mental lapse. I meant the dealer sprayed the wheels, not itself. OOPS:32:

I better just quit while I'm ahead. I can't type, I can't think, and I can't spell. Not good.

The Pilotitis is getting to me.:eek:

I cleaned and wiped the wheels off and could tell that they had sprayed them with some sort of slimy sticky stuff. My rag was BLACK. I seem to have gotten them squeaky clean and after driving around the buildup seems to be much less. :D

Greetings from Milwaukee's South Side

Hello all. I'm glad to see that there's so much enthusiasm out there for the new Pilot. I won't be buying one anytime soon, but my parents may replace my mom's end-of-lease Civic with one.

I've got a '98 CR-V that I absolutely love, along with my '00 Insight and the good old '88 Civic LX sedan with 240k miles! I love Hondas!

I'm interested in seeing what kind of modifications people do to their Pilots. I'd LOVE to see one rockin' some 20's!:D

I've managed to squeeze a rather huge audio system into my tiny little Insight, what will you guys do with your Pilots' audio systems? I doubt that anyone with NAV or factory DVD will be changing much, but someone like me who'd opt for the factory nothin-fancy would be able to go with a kickin' setup. I'd love to see a Kenwood NAV/DVD player with back seat LCDs and a couple of 12s! Anyway, I'll quite rambling about that.

For those of you who haven't experienced snow with the AWD, yes it is totally fun. My brother also has a CR-V and we're always tearing around in the fresh powder!

Later,

Matt

Sorry. I meant 20" rims. Which would of course be summertime only! :cool:
