Up-dating our road trip information. Since the journey to northern Ontario from the Atlantic coast central FL home base in August, the Pilot has been several times to Miami, once to extreme SW FL and most recently to N. Orleans. Current mileage is 7647, starting 1st week Aug 02. Only two other Pilots have been seen on the road.

The Pilot is subjectively more comfortable on these journeys
( Interstate and city traffic ) than our Volvo wagon and Explorer.

None of the more significant Pilot irritants ( 70mph shimmy, sloshy gas tank, extraneous noises, etc ) have been noticed so far. With the exception of more pronounced tire noise at high speed, particulary on concrete surfaces, compared to the Michelin equiped Volvo and Explorer. When tire time comes the Pilot will also go Michelin.

The Pilot will probably be used as the vehicle on the planned FL-Alaska trip in summer 03.

Our Redrock Pilot is equiped with Valentine radar, amateur radio HF mobile, latest SP GPS, and full front end bug/debris protection.

tire noise

Full agreement on the tires. The only complaint period, has been the tire noise. I would have expected this to be a little less noisy, since by all accounts the tires are passenger car tires. Otherwise, no complaints whatsoever.
