Has your family outgrown its vehicle? Perhaps your teenagers have reached their unavoidable growth spurts and now the trusty family minivan is getting a bit too cramped for everyone. If this is the case, consider a pre-owned 2012 Honda Pilot for your next family vehicle.
This boxy sports utility vehicle comes with oodles of space. Even the third row can comfortably fit adults. The pilot and captain’s chairs are exceptionally roomy and supportive. Move back a row and you’ll get adjustable second row seating that can be maneuvered to allow access to the back row or to maximize legroom. The last two rows can both fold forward and are split 60/40 to create ample cargo space when you need it.
This Honda runs on a powerful 3.5-liter V6 engine which wields a brawny 250 horsepower. It gets a respectable 25 mpg on the highway, which makes this eight-passenger vehicle one of the most efficient in its segment.
According to The Car Connection, the Pilot delivers a smooth and responsive ride. The driver is given both a high vantage point and easy maneuverability thanks to the car-like unibody design. If you spend part or most of your year driving through snow or mud, consider the four-wheel-drive models, which can also tow as much as 4,500 pounds.
