We're looking to purchase a Pilot, and safety is a big issue especially since we have a teenager (son) who will be driving very soon.

There was a recent article in the Wall St. Journal about the advisability of getting "curtain" air bags. I understand these to be air bags that come down from above the doors (like a curtain) and that are supposed to give very good side and head protection.

The local Honda dealer says that the Honda side air bags are under the seat and the car has been rated "five stars" for crash protection. Honda has no plans to add curtain air bags in the Pilot.

Can anyone give me any information about the side air bag protection in the Pilot and whether the curtain air bag is really as important as the article says?
