We recently purchased our 2019 Honda Pilot Elite. The Pilot is replacing our 2004 Honda Odyssey EXL- RES. Our Odyssey had around 340,000 miles on it when it was struck head on by a half ton Chevy pickup. Thankfully all involved will make a full recovery. The Odyssey however, didn't fare so we'll. We also looked at all of the Pilots competition before deciding on the pilot.
I just picked up my 2012 EX-L a week ago today. I traded in my 2007 Element LX AWD auto transmission with over 202,000 miles on the clock. I would have kept it longer, but my boys and I have outgrown it, and also having 2 big dogs, I love the extra space in the Pilot. I think at least one of the rear wheel bearings was starting to go. I just didn't want to put any more money into the Element. It was a good car, never had any major problems with it. Engine still ran great, transmission still shifted well, AC still ice cold, heat still hot, and everything else worked. If someone else buys it and replaces the wheel bearings, it'll probably go another 200,000 or more.
Last August we replaced a 2001 Honda Odyssey EX we bought new with a 2018 Honda Pilot EX-L. The Odyssey had only 93,000 miles on it and was well maintained but the wife said it was "an old looking style" and she wanted something more up to date to drive. I also was on some Odyssey forums and there was a lot of discussion about the tranny of the 1999-2001 Odysseys. It seemed like folks were replacing the tranny between 100,000-125,000 miles. I didn't want to have to replace the tranny on a 17 year old Odyssey. That's another reason we opted for the EX-L over the Touring or Elite. I read a lot of complaints about the 9-speed and opted for the 6-speed.
My current 2019 replaced a 2017 that replaced a 2010 Ridgeline that replaced a 2004 pilot that replaced a 2002 CR-V. I have Honda issues! LoL
My quads are also Honda. 2003 250ex, 2007 250ex and 2006 400ex. Yeah definitely a Honda guy!!
