Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

What Owners Say

"The car drives like a smaller car and has good power."

JEANINE B., NY (2006 Honda Pilot)

"Great acceleration getting on the interstate when needed. Cruise control is flawless and maintains +/- 2 MPH even on inclines."

CALI Y., AZ (2006 Honda Pilot)

"Road noise is sometimes above my acceptance level."

DAVID P., MI (2006 Honda Pilot)

"Pilot has high center of gravity. Need to be careful on curves to avoid rollover.."

Anonymous, OH (2006 Honda Pilot)

"the rear and side mirror visibility could be a lot better. I also wish it was easier to determine the front and rear limits on spacing when parking. A more aggressive alert about leaving dome or headlights on would also help."

"slow acceleration"

Anonymous, HI (2006 Honda Pilot)

"VEHICLE RUNS LIKE IT IS NEW."

W D., IL (2006 Honda Pilot)

"Acceleration is quite good for large vehicle, tight turning radius and very smooth transmission make for an enjoyable ride for driver and passengers. Feels safe and secure on road."

Anonymous, MA (2006 Honda Pilot)

"I would prefer that it were not AWD full time. I would prefer the ability to disengage the 4WD when not needed. It lowers the gas mileage It accelerates and handles well even pulling a trailer. The radio does not have good reception. Overall though I really like this vehicle."

M R., PA (2006 Honda Pilot)

"The power and handling of this car is superb. After 11 years I still love driving this car"

JONATHAN G., CA (2006 Honda Pilot)

"The handling is very good for an SUV. I put it through it's paces and have no trouble with cornering and evasive maneuvers. The acceleration is also very smooth and quick off the mark if needed. Entering freeways is also an easy task because the Pilot accelerates quickly to freeway speed."

LINDA R., CA (2006 Honda Pilot)

"I am very impressed how well the vehicle handles especially in snowy conditions with the snow tires Consumer Reports recommended with a 40,000 mile guarantee."

REYNALDO H., CO (2006 Honda Pilot)

"Not great acceleration, feels tinny"

Anonymous, MA (2006 Honda Pilot)

"Acceleration is good but it's a big vehicle so I don't push the handling. It's comfortable and sight lines are good."

DAVID H., ON (2006 Honda Pilot)

"At 200,000+ miles it is beginning to have a slower start from a dead stop; otherwise I am quite happy. It has a tight turning radius which helps with parking and u-turns. Steering is still quite tight, no wiggle or play."

CAROLYN R., AL (2006 Honda Pilot)

"Solid on the road in all conditions. As noted, the AWD system works great in the Colorado mountains. Especially like the auto downshifting of the transmission when using the cruise control. This happens about 5 mph above the cruise control setting. Just love this feature."

The 3 seats have been great for transporting family, especially grandchildren. Plenty of room for luggage and have used for trips with friends. Everyone enjoys the Pilot. My outside paint color has held up to weather and have only had to do the usual maintenance required. I would like to buy a new car but still love my Pilot too much to even look."

"Great ride. Good acceleration. AWD works great in the high alpine environment of Breckenridge, Colorado. Ride is quiet enough to understand lyrics to the music on the sound system at a reasonable volume. Especially like the fact that the cruise control downshifts on downhill grades at about 5 mph over the set speed. This is a great feature in the mountains and avoids frequent automatic transmission downshifting and also saves the brakes for when you need them."
