Drove home my new NHB EX last night. Love it.

Almost bought the family an '04 Sienna instead and I'm so glad I didn't. Just didn't feel right paying $30K for a minivan. Safe, yes. Dependable, yes. Cool, no.

Pilot scrunched on the test drive. I printed out some threads from here and the service manager committed to helping me deal w/ it. He did something that made it go away for now and said to stop back if it started again and he'd have some tape ready.

I can deal with bandaids for the scrunch (and other minor annoyances) to drive this sweet ride.

Thanks to all who post as I found this site invaluable when researching. The people at the dealer were impressed when I showed them honda-pilot.org and I think they'll be visiting often.

my co-worker who bought MDX wanted a Sienna, too. Dealer told him if he is not willing to pay mark-up then the waiting was like 3 monthes so he gave up, that was a month ago. Wonder what kinda story they are telling today.

Same story today. Sienna is backlogged so far they wouldn't haggle or commit to any kind of date, especially because I wanted AWD. I was pretty much stuck in limbo wondering what to "order" and trying to figure out what a pain that would be when I noticed the local dealer had a new Pilot sitting on the lot just waiting for me!
