I am new to this forum and trying to seek out some information about pricing people are seeing in the 2004 model for cloth versus leather.

I am from Washington State and have recieved quotes at about $1000 below MSRP on both the leather and cloth models. Has anyone else recieved similar or better quotes?

I am also interested in people's views of buying leather versus cloth on the Pilot.

Thanks

And if you ARE going to try it, spilling coffee or chocolate, preferable doing it on a dealer's demo Pilot... :2:

To answer your question, I pre-ordered a 2004 EX cloth around July, based on no knowledge of what's going to be updated on the 2004 models. With the new heated seat and mirror, I can see me go either way. I agree, it's a personal choice.

Gotta say Leather. It's a matter of personal preference. I've got leather in my acura and cloth in my pickup. Since I am trading in my pickup, we held off and pre-ordered an 04 with leather(b/c of the heated seats) for our new suv. :roadtrip:

Leather, IMO it just makes the Pilot's interior look much more substantial (remember IMO). I have 2 little ones and cleaning up after them would seem easier with leather.

Secondly, the heated seats and mirrors are great when things start freezing up on you :)

Thirdly, the wife said get everything I want now. She didnt want to hear me complain about I shoulda coulda and all that jazz later on down the road:p

I bought my EX-L last Sat for $1,000 over invoice in So. Cal.

Good luck!

We have dogs that ride with us. Have you ever seen what their claws do to leather?

So we get cloth and one of the little ****s proceeds to cut a slice in the pleather covering on the center console. Figures...

Obviously a personal choice...

We went with leather for two reasons...

1. Easy to clean, we have a one year old that is constantly thinking up new things to spill, and the leather is an easy clean with a decreased likliehood of allowing the spill to soak down to the seat padding, where it would forever live and emit odor

2. Not a fan of the pattern Honda uses on the cloth...would prefer a monochromatic look, we thought that their pattern was a little busy

3. (OK I lied)... Had we the opportunity to get a 2004 with heated seats..it would have a slam dunk...:mad:

I went with leather

I decided for leather as I bought 2004 model. Also I have 3 kids in car and booster seats. My accord with cloth has chocolate and who knows what stains on the seats. I hope leather will be easy to clean. Well, in some people's opinion it is not leather any way but pleather.

I guess I'm the only one on the opposite end. My last two cars were leather and I chose cloth this time. I had 2 kids in car seats in my last car and leather wasn't our friend. Perhaps this was because it was beige. I ended up with numerous sratches, wear marks and stains. I find the cloth to be more durable and easier to clean.
