I have a currently unregistered 2006 CRV, with 68k miles and peeling clearcoat...Long story.
I need a registered vehicle ASAP.
I need more cargo room, so I thought I'd get something different and put the registration $$ into that.

1. Any suggestions for most reliable year for used Pilot?
2. Any experience with Carvana?
3. Also considering Element vs Pilot ...Thoughts?

Thanks in advance!
Happy Thanksgiving too.

Make sure you check:

Cargurus.com

They have a rating to tell you how the vehicle is priced compared to similar models that are currently for sale.

You can use that to negotiate and cross shop carvana.

Good luck

Element and a Pilot?
To me, not even really in the same category? Both Hondas.

Carvana? Are there any decent Craigslist listings in your area?

Less 'markup' when buying from the previous owner IMHO.

I would go with 2017 or newer if you can. Carvana is very expensive, and you can save thousands elsewhere, even from dealerships.

If you want convenience Carvana will be good, but you’re paying for it. Consider CarMax too. Higher prices but you typically know what you’re getting.

Most reliable Pilot:
1st Gen: 2006-2008 with AWD
2nd Gen: 2013-2015
3rd Gen: I have no idea.

If you can avoid Touring/Elite trim you will have less electrical issues.

it’s hard to be too helpful since I don’t know price range, mileage limit, etc.

I know nothing about the Element but people who have it love it. I think it has the same motor as the CR-V.

Would definitely be easier if we could narrow down a price.

Otherwise we're playing darts in Nail Grease garage in the pitch dark while he tells us how great Sumitomo is. Half of us want to leave yet we can't find the way out, the other half got a dart in their neck and can't get Grease to stop talking long enough to tell him they're bleeding.

Ps... been drinking, only for laughs.





Ps2.... SUMITOMO!!!!
