I have a touring awd no res. I traded a 2006 crv. I love this model. there is a world of differnece in ride and road noise. It is fun to dirve and smooth. no problems at all so far. it does not pull to the right and i have been keeping an eye on my oil level so far no oil loss. there are no squeaks, rattles or noises that seem out of the ordinary. I am very pleased with the interior. I dont like much that it is black because every little spot shows up. It also seems like the plastic on the door scrathes easily. i have noticed scratched from my watch already and down by my feet. with only 600 miles. i would buy another pilot again so far. i did get the honda care just in case over the internet.

Route 23 Honda in Pompton Plains seemed to be pretty aggressive on pricing. Go through their "Internet Sales Department." I was considering buying an EXL with no RES from them. They gave me a good quote.

My car is 2010 2WD EXL Pilot w/o res with gray color.

Hi there! I am considering "pulling the trigger" on a pilot soon... the dealer has offered me a selling price of $36,400 plus tax license and a doc fee of $99. I am a bit worried that they could give me more for my trade ins - but they are offering kbb at the "good" condition for each of them. One has very low mileage so I know they can sell it for a good chunk of change...
Sound like a good deal to you? The wern't negotiating too hard so I don't know if I should push more or just go for it.
And how much CAN you negotiate on extras (such as extended warranty)?

I am looking for that exact same model but I can't get a quote any lower than $38k in SoCal. I don't know how different prices are up there but it sure sounds good to me. I am holding out for a more reasonable price.
#13922 of 15374 2010 2WD Touring with Nav and Res

My wife and I just purchased a 2010 Touring Pilot 2WD with RES and NAV. Gray with gray leather interior. Only had it for a few days, but love it so far. Very smooth ride, quiet interior and the gray is great. Initially we wanted the silver with black interior, but changed our mind once we saw the black interior and felt the heat coming from inside the vehicle. We spent about a year looking at all the smaller SUV's like the Traverse, Arcadia, Outlook, Flex, CX9 and others and once we saw the 2010 Pilot, sat in it, and then drove it we were sold. It was worth the wait and with the resale value of Honda's it was the right choice.
We live in So. California and I was able to get the Pilot for $750.00 over invoice. That ended up being 36805.00 before taxes and fees, but still a great deal according to Truecar.com. I got them down from 1500.00 over to this point. The key was shopping around and working the dealerships against each other. They all want to close the deals. Other dealerships worked hard for our business, but they all had to dealer locate the vehicle as they are hard to come by in this trim level. Only 2 in the state in the silver or gray with black leather. And the Gray with gray leather is even harder to find. Luckily for us our local dealership had it and they got the deal to the numbers I wanted (After 2 visits).
If you are shopping for one, get one and act fast. They sell quick. Well worth the expense. I would not pay over 1000.00 over invoice, but you should be able to get it under that with a little hard work and always be willing to walk away. I walked away from 3 other deals and dealerships before one dealer finally got to what I wanted.

Thanks for that report. We had preferred silver/black but couldn't find one as 2009 closed, so we ended up with silver/gray. And it is good to hear someone who noted they liked the gray. Hope you enjoy yours!

Hi I paid 30300 OTD for a 2010 Pilot LX AWD in NV(7.75% tax rate) with no trade in, was wondering if I paid too much? Also added after wards 1500$ for the 7yr warranty.
#13925 of 15374 2010 Pilot EX-L 4WD

New to the list, and new to Honda with the recent purchase of a 2010 Pilot EX-L 4WD. Something that may be of interest to those of you in the Carolina region is using a credit union car buying service. I live in East TN, and test-drove a used '09 EX-L 4WD at the local Honda dealer. The asking price seemed fair, but I was not overly impressed with the trade-in offer on my '04 GMC Envoy. The credit union I belong to recently partnered with a large credit union in central NC and began offering a car-buying service. Out of curiosity, I completed their on-line trade-in assessment form for my Envoy, and completed another form detailing what vehicle I was looking for. Was contacted by the rep the next day, and they offered me $1,000 more than the dealer offered for my Envoy, sight unseen. Also started a search for either a used '09 or new '10 Pilot. They were able to locate a new one matching my exact color choice within a week. Price for the '10 EX-L 4WD ended up at $33,144 + tag, title, and tax, which looks to be a fair deal, based on what I've seen here. My new Pilot was delivered to me on a Saturday. It was brought over from NC by the selling dealer on a trailer, detailed and ready to go. We met in the credit union parking lot. After a test drive, we filled out the paperwork while sitting in the Pilot. He then loaded up the Envoy and we were both on our way in less than an hour. To me, the best part of this transaction was avoiding all of the hassle in the "back room" at a dealership after negotiating a trade. The buying service does charge an extra $400, but at least the credit union rep told me that upfront in the first conversation we had. Considering they had to haul both vehicles a couple hundred miles, and the paperwork involved, that does not seem too bad. Also received a 0.25% APR discount on the loan interest rate by using the service. Overall, I am very satisfied with the buying service and the vehicle. Got to test the Pilot's ability in the snow this past weekend, and it did great. There are some subtle, yet surprising differences in the Pilot vs the Envoy, but that's best left for another discussion.

I just paid $33,000 plus tax and title in the St. Louis, MO area. I requested quotes from four dealers through this site and got very good/immediate responses. They also offered .9% financing. Cost included 32,104 (invoice) + 710 (destination)+ admin fee= 33K
