#14830 of 15566 need help on price quote
Sep 03, 2011 (12:57 pm)
Please help on this quote. honda pilot EX-L , 12K mi/ yr, no nav, no res......list is 36,680 and they quoted me adjusted cap cost of 33K. All in (inc sales tax ) they say $507 / month. I think this is way high
I am paying 490/mnth for a 2008 Ex-L lease with 20k mi per yr and expected to pay lower just by going to 12k miles per yr.
What price range would constitute a good deal ?

I just purchased the car (MSRP 41,630) for 500 under invoice, which resulted in an out the door price of $40,000. Did I pay too much?

What is your state sale tax ?? That seems high, as I just brought a new 2011 Honda Pilot EXL Navi 4x4 for $33855 plus tax and tags.....Res is only another $1000. Either way you have a great truck.

#14837 of 15566 2012 first impressions
Sep 19, 2011 (10:37 am)
drove a new Ex-L Nav in Austin this past weekend and wanted to share some initial impressions.
Dealer offers no haggle pricing. 37.3 msrp, 36.2 plus tax/fee's. Not that special but pricing is higher to keep 2011's moving and they only have one 2012....
Here's some feedback since we don't have a 2012 category yet.
1. Grill - looks much better, losing the transformer grill is nice. This is personal opinion for sure
2. Sound proofing - they've added wheel well materials and I read better windshield. Driving, it's still louder than our 2004 mdx.
3. Inside - Dash is improved and radio/nav is much better (caught up)
4. Driving - drove like a suv, brakes felt better than mdx which makes me think they improved braking distance but this could be difference between 8 year old mdx and new pilot... Would love a review/test on this part.
5. Mileage. trip computer claims I was getting 18mpg driving the truck fairly hard. MDX shows less than 10 when driving in city so ...
6. Seats - Son driving in the 2nd row said the seats were more comfortable than our MDX.
1. Tires - not sure about the Low resistance tires. Not a real con, just concern that this will impact stopping distance.
2. Look - while better, would like more refreshing look for this boxy truck.
3. Not much else to report.
So, going to wait for more to arrive and costs come down as there are only 1-2 at dealers right now.
#14838 of 15566 Honda Pilot 2011 EX-L Nav
Sep 20, 2011 (3:57 am)
I traded in my 2003 Honda Pilot EX-L Nav, with 225,000 miles on it, and purchased a 2011 Honda Pilot EX-L Nav, which I picked up yesterday. The dealership I went with gave me the best trade in, $4,300 (the transmission/4WD was failing and the catalytic converter needed work/replacement to pass emissions). The sales price was 34,200, before two options I added - remote start and chrome/wood trim package - along with the Simoniz Glasscoat application. They did not have the color I wanted but were able to get it for me which was nice, as most dealerships around here have a lot of 2012's but very limited 2011's.
The first time I saw the actual car I was buying was when I went to pick it up - there were 2 scratches and an overall mediocre detail job, so they spent 20 minutes to touch it up and clean it before I would sign for it. I was a bit disappointed that they used the valet key for the remote start instead of making another key for it, but I can buy another - I find it handy to keep in the car so I can move/use it anytime. My first impression was that the satellite radio reception was less that what I was getting with my magnetic roof top attenna I had on my old Pilot, and that was the hissing noise I would hear while driving. Other than that, I have my fingers crossed that I can get the same mileage I got from my last Pilot.

Wow! 225,000 miles! That's impressive. Hopefully I'll be able to get that many out of my 2011 EX-L w/ NAV Pilot. I picked it up 5/19/11 & 4 months later have over 6100 miles. Time for my 1st oil change.
Any tips you could share for having that Pilot go for so long?
