2007 Honda Pilot Review
This review was written when the 2007 Honda Pilot was new.
The Pilot delivers quality performance, a roomy interior and a reputation for safety and reliability, but not the fuel efficiency of some other cars in its class. If you're in the market for a midsize SUV, you should also consider the Nissan Murano and the GMC Acadia.
The 2007 Honda Pilot is a favorite among reviewers for its quality road performance, spacious interior, and storage capabilities compared with its class. Car and Driver has named the Pilot as the "Best Large SUV" every year since its debut as a 2003 model, explaining that that it "still offers a combination of practicality, value, and efficiency that has eluded its numerous mainstream-SUV competitors." Almost everyone agrees it's a good choice. "The Pilot can win you over quickly with its mix of utility, roominess, comfort, performance and generally car-like manners," MSN writes, while Cars.com adds, "Honda did nearly everything right with the Pilot." The 2007 Honda Pilot has also been selected as a Best Buy by Consumer Guide.
According to reviews, the 2007 Honda Pilot is a great bang for your buck. As Car and Driver says, "in every version, the Pilot delivers an outstanding degree of refined quality at a very attractive price." IntelliChoice gives the 2007 Honda Pilot a rating of "excellent" for its predicted five-year total cost of ownership, compared with other vehicles in its class. Kelley Blue Book agrees, noting, "The Pilot is expected to retain better-than-average residual and resale values ... better than the Ford Explorer, Chevrolet TrailBlazer and Dodge Durango."
