At one time, driving a Honda Pilot meant driving dynamics, family friendliness, and powertrain refinement were more important to you than the macho, trucklike SUV look. The Pilot was a natural next step for Civic and Accord owners with growing families. But something went awry in the late-2000s. Honda changed tack, making the Pilot more trucky and cheap-feeling.

What Owners Say

"With Econo on the car is sluggish and slow to respond unless I really press the accelerator"

SANDRA B., GA (2016 Honda Pilot)

"The ONLY issue with the vehicle is a feature called "auto idle stop". If a list of certain conditions are met, when you make a complete stop and fully engage the brake pedal, the engine is supposed to turn off and automatically start back up when you release the brake pedal. With certain settings of the climate control system, the feature works intermitently. Not a huge thing as it does not shut off when it should. It ALWAYS turns back on when it should."

Anonymous, WI (2016 Honda Pilot)

"The Pilot has great handling and acceleration. My favorite aspect is the hands free blue tooth and the information system that tracks mileage. The ECO function automatically adjusts acceleration and the A/C system for best gas mileage and light indicators tell me when I'm using a lot of gas vs. less (green). I am nervous about being overly reliant on a computer system that could easily become outdated or get a virus/fail resulting in costly repairs. This is the main reason why I'm considering"

"9 speed transmission is not smooth, especially at low speeds."

JARED R., GA (2016 Honda Pilot)

"With the vehicle's 9 speed transmission, acceleration from a stop is not good at all. The "auto stop" feature of the engine can be disruptive to daily driving, altho I can turn off that feature."

"I've never driven a tank before or a house but I think that's what it would feel like when driving new pilot. I've heard others say it drives better then the previous gens. It's hard for me to get use to it since my other car is honda fit. In my small town there are 6 traffic cycles or round a bouts. The fit drives so smoothly, fast, wheel handles curve like a giant bear hug. While the pilot feels awkward, loose, non responsive. If I didn't own fit I may not feel this."

JANA R., WI (2016 Honda Pilot)

"As far as handling goes I will relate an experience I had recently: I was driving on Texas99 in rainy weather - as it turns out I was going to fast for the conditions. Texas99 was built in a big hurry and rather slap-dash. There are more than a few places were water collects at dangerous depths on the road - mostly in the fast lanes. At this one spot, going approximately 65, I was following a car in the fast lane passing three other vehicles. All of a sudden the car in front of me sent up a high rooster-tail and went off onto the inner median. Fortunately, I was 6-7 car lengths behind and immediately took my foot off the gas and tapped the brakes once. I estimate we hit the 3-5 inches of water at about 55mph. I think through some good handling on my part, the abilities of the 2016 Pilot, and not some small amount of good fortune we went straight thru the man-made hazard unscathed. To me, this is a great testament to the handling for the 2016 Pilot."

Anonymous, TX (2016 Honda Pilot)

"The Pilot has plenty of power and drives comfortably. It's cost to operate is down right cheap. It took a little while, and took a little tweaking, to get used to the engine management system. It would help if Honda explained the 6 cylinder vs 3 cylinder operation which I didn't even know it had. I thought it had a transmission issue. An update to the engine management program eliminated all concerns."

The Engine works great in the economy mode reducing to three cylinders when in overdrive. The cutting off of the engine although disconcerting at times, seems to work fine and probably has some impact on mileage. All in All, it's a good setup."

"The idle shut off is a nice feature, but it started getting rough and wouldn’t re-engage the engine as it should. Instead it would shut off the entire car for a split second and then engage. This got progressively more frequent over 2 months and the dealership service couldn’t get Honda Techline to take it seriously. The dealer persisted and escalated it so that an obscure problem with a DC converter was identified. Honda replaced it per warranty, but the service dept deserves the credit. Was surprised by the stubbornness of Honda’s Tech-line engineers not acknowledging that there was a problem."

I live in AZ and It was 117 last week. I hate that whenever I need to use the phone the A/C turns so low that it feels like an oven in the car.

"The seat comfort stands out due to its size and comfort"

Anonymous, IL (2016 Honda Pilot)

"The stadium style seats are extremely comfortable and both heated and cooled...the road noise level is super quiet due to the special insulated windshield and side windows...the ride and handling of the Elite is so very smooth and comfortable with great road clearance afforded by the 20 inch tires...this vehicle is such a bargain for the price."

"The front and middle seats are very comfortable for adults. Noise is never a factor. The engine is generally powerful enough however, the start-stop mechanism is problematic in that there is a significant delay when starting from a stop such that it could cause an accident. To avoid this I anticipate when I will need to accelerate form a stop and re-start the engine moments before."

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"For the price we paid, I would expect the car to be more comfortable (i.e. issues with the armrests) and not as noisy. Also, the Bluetooth system /voice recognition system of using the cell phone might as well not be on there. I have to make a call using my cell phone, then press the screen in the Honda to transfer it to blue tooth. The only thing you can do with the steering wheel is answer and hang up a call."
