If it were you choosing between the pilot and odyessy with 3 kids sounds like you would choose the Odyessy. After having a van and now a SUV I truly do miss those sliding doors and the space. However here is my dilemma, we live in California as well and we drive up to Lake Tahoe on those snowy roads at least a half a dozen times in winter. Really looking forward to the first good snowfall!!!! Anyway after owning an old odyessy and having to deal with chains that year I was really liking it the last few years, I was able to completly escape the chains. So I just do not know what to do. I have checked out Sienna AWD, too expensive and not comfy for me. SO I am not sure whether to get minivan and not worry about snow conditions or not worry about the room for 3 kids and dog. Any ideas??!!!

I have had my '06 Pilot for a month now. Last night I left work and turned on my radio to discover no sound. XM, AM/FM, CD all with no sound. I kept pushing buttons DVD/AUX and finally heard a pop and sound came back. I have heard theories about cold weather -- it was midnight and the coldest night since I have had my pilot -- about 55 degress. Has anyone figured out what is happening with the radio -- it has only happened once and has not happened since. Thanx.

No suggestions about why or whether the problem is likely to re-occur, but the same thing has been reported bo other 06 Pilot owners. You could probably get the dealer to replace the radio if you complain. I'd probably wait and see if it happened again before doing anything - perhaps it was a one-time glitch and it's always good if you can avoid having someone tear into your dash at the dealership.

I agree totally. I decided to wait -- it has not happened since. Last thing I want is to rip into the dash board. Thanks for your input.

Has anyone tried to cut down the road noise by
installing Dynamat on the front driver and
passenger floors ? If so, did it work ? How
much was it ? Any issues installing ?
And... are there alternatives to Dynamat that
#1294 of 1336 Has the Pilot been redesigned for 2007?
Oct 15, 2006 (2:47 pm)
I just saw a picture of the new MDX and it's ugly!!!! It looks exactly like the CRV 2007 that is also very disappointing. What is going on over at Honda? WHo are they getting to design these duds???? Shame I really want to break out of my Toyota mold but if this is what Honda is going to offer, I may have to look elsewhere.

I'm buying an SUV this month, and I don't have children or anything, but plan on using my next SUV to take roadtrips with friends...I was wondering what you guys though of the middle row as far as comfort.
I wish you can slide the middle row back more to make additional leg room.

I have found the middle seat to be comfortable and have plenty of leg room. That being said, I have only ridden back there for short trips around town. The only long trips I have taken, I have been in the front seat.
