If possible, can ya'll chime in on what MPG you are getting? I know there are a lot of factors that can influence it, but just curious. I currently have a 2013 EX-L, and my gas mileage is horrible. Wife drives 80% local, (not with a heavy foot) which I understand will result in lower readings, but I think 12.6 is pretty bad. I'm ready to pull the trigger on a new Touring, but just want to see how fuel economy is on the new model. I guess I would prefer to hear readings on local commuters with a 2WD, but I'll take all the input I can get. Thanks in advance for all and any info that you guys can give me!
I drive a 2016 Elite, and I commute from Houston TX to Dallas TX once a week for my job. On the drive, I usually average between 29.0-32.0 mpg. That's with using the cruise control about 90% of the time.
Strictly city driving .... anywhere from 19.0-21.0 mpg.
First road trip with 2019 Honda Pilot Elite (purchased January) starting beginning of trip at 2,886 miles. Northern Illinois to Minneapolis MN. Drive was 605 miles over 3 days, trip computer showed 28.5 average MPG. Almost all expressway driving, a little local driving, ECON mode always on, A/C always on, cruise control sometimes on. Navigation system was good, got confused in a construction zone where we were driving North in the South bound temporary lane. Loaded 44 music CDs on a 32 MB USB flash memory prior to trip, worked great. All systems worked as expected. Now car needs a good wash.
Just returned from a trip from Northern CA, Relatively flat driving for the 1st 250 miles. With a passenger aboard and the rest of that car filled with "stuff", I pulled in for gas with the meter reading 29.5 mpg. Actual mileage was 28.1 mpg. The rest of the trip back to Socal included climbing the Grapevine and then descending it to LA and then home to the OC. Some traffic in LA, of course, and the meter read 29.6 mpg when i pulled into my drivway. The total trip was about 440 miles which I could have done on one tank of gas. Speed range was 70-77 mph.I am very pleased with the mpg for such a large and comfortable drive.
19 touring with 7k miles bought last August. Trip computer with mostly city driving is 14-15mpg. Highway 25. I need to do my own math and will report back but disappointed in city mpg as it’s visually ugly to look at.
I second these observations. Your speed will affect your mpgs by a lot. I consistently get 28 mpg on hwy in my '19 Touring AWD as long asIi stick to 70 mph or below with three people in the car. I get 20 mpg around city (100% city). My mixed driving is at 24 mpg but I think I have a higher hwy miles. Overall, I am impressed with what i get on such a large vehicle.
Just did a 1200 mile trip with an AWD touring. Had to fill up three times after starting off with a full tank.
The trip computer had the following averages each time I filled up:
26 on the first tank...mostly driving 60-70mph
21 on the second tank...doing 80mph in Kansas with a huge crosswind
26 on the third tank...averaging 70-75mph with no more crosswing
29 on the current tank...averaging 50-65mph due to all the construction on the highway
So, if you stick to 70mph you should average 26-27. If you get it up to 80mph it will drop to 24-25...less of you're going against the wind. If you drive 50-60 then you can probably squeeze out 30mpg average.
Also, keep in mind, we had two adults and two teenagers, plus all of our luggage for a three week trip. If you're driving alone, expect better results.
2016 Touring AWD ; display means nothing - recent 130mile highway trip it said 33.6, in real life at the pump it was 30mpg, now I was being careful with the throttle at about 60mph on the highway with no econ and no A/C...
I'm getting an error message "Keyless Start System Problem" that comes and goes every few days. The car starts fine, the doors unlock, and the remote start works fine. I changed the battery in the remote too. Nothing seems wrong except for the error message. (see attached photo)
Hello, so my wife and I are looking at buying a 2016 pilot elite with 38,000 miles. We like the car, looks and runs great however there is a noticeable ticking coming from the engine. You can only hear it outside the car and it goes away at about 1500 rpm in park. Hard to tell in gear when...
It appears that after sitting over night my vacuum brake booster looses its vacuum assist. The pedal is rock hard in the morning to the point where I have to push really hard on it to start the vehicle. It’s fine for the rest of the day. I called the dealer and he advised me that he has seen...
I’m looking at a one owner 2016 pilot touring with 172,000 miles. It was a leased vehicle for personal use and has had no accidents.
That’s a ton of miles- but it also makes the price great at $15,400. Dealer is very motivated to sell and is offering $3,000 above book on my trade (2015 F-150...
I've been reading almost every post for a month or two. I understand people usually only come here when they have problems and seeking for solutions. However, it scares me a bit that some have multiple issues on the very same vehicle. This indicates problems with overall reliability, not just...
