Honda Pilot Test Drive Review

Disclaimer Utah Honda Test Drive

This week we test drove the 2013 Honda Pilot for a WHOLE week thanks to HONDA OF OREM.

The timing was perfect. We are in the market for a new car.

The Honda Pilot is my dream car and have wanted one for a long time. Last year, we test drove a mini van and just couldn’t get excited about the mini van. It was pretty gutless to me.

It’s kind of a rotten trick to give you the car of your dreams and then try NOT to fall in love with it. Because of this I approached the test drive very skeptical and was intentionally looking for flaws.

Day 1:

The Ken Garff of Orem team drove to Salt Lake to personally deliver the car. If you’re not familiar with the area, it’s about a 40 minute drive. It was right after a big snow storm, so I appreciated the effort they made in our behalf, especially having young children.

Paul gave me all the details about the car. It was fully loaded: leather seats, back up camera, XM radio, seat heaters, sun roof. They even put in the children’s car seats for me. They were so nice and helpful, I have to admit, I was surprised. Not your typical car sales

men at all.

Then we gave it our first real test: The Pre-school drop off.

Day 2:

On the second day we  had a ton of snow. The Pilot handles so well in the snow.

The real test was Costco:
