Blog Post by Ron Garrigus: Owner of Auto Accessory Superstore

As the owner of a new 2017 Honda Pilot EX myself; I would like to give an honest review of this highly acclaimed vehicle and what I think is superb; and also what is lacking.

….STYLING: Thanks to the total redesign of the Honda Pilot in 2016; it no longer has the boxy look that the previous versions had. It now has a very sleek and aerodynamic look that is quite pleasing to the eye. With that kudos goes to the Honda design engineers.

….INTERIOR: Once again the Honda Pilot engineers did a superb job as the interior is quite roomy with the dash and instrumentation thoughtfully designed. There is plenty of leg room in the front and middle rows seats; but the rear 3rd row seat area should only be reserved for smaller children since it takes a lot of agility to get in and out of the vehicle.

….ENGINE: The standard 3.5 Liter V6 engine puts out plenty of power that should meet most of Honda Pilot owners.

…TRANSMISSION: My Honda Pilot EX came standard with a smooth shifting 6 speed automatic transmission with a traditional console gear shift lever. The other more expensive versions of the Honda Pilot come with a 9 speed automatic transmission. Instead of having a gear shift lever; they have small push buttons that are located in the middle of the center console. (I hate using push buttons to select your gears; but that is a matter of personal preference).

…WHAT’S MISSING? DID HONDA FORGET TO ADD THIS? Even though the Honda Pilot has a lower ground clearance than compared to a full-sized pickup that I previously owned; I found that I still had to lift my leg up a high distance just to get into the vehicle. Likewise I also had a large step to clear when I exited the vehicle as well.  Even though I am a fairly agile person and far from being considered disabled; I still found entering and exiting the vehicle to be uncomfortable.

To easily and quickly solve this problem; I installed a set of running boards that made a huge difference. Besides it allowing for extremely entry and exit from the vehicle; it greatly enhanced the overall looks of the Honda Pilot. So you are probably thinking how quickly and easily I done this. In less than an hour I installed these Honda Pilot running boards with just a basic socket wrench as NO-DRILLING IS REQUIRED. I just simply bolted these running boards into the existing holes in the body frame that are located underneath the vehicle. It was just that quick and easy!

…IN CONCLUSION: The Honda Pilot is a great vehicle that has many great features; and offers great styling without spending huge dollars. It truly is a great bang for the buck in the SUV market.
