hello hate car shopq,
I have 2010 pilot ex-l 4wd. the car is about 4400 miles. it handle very well on the dry road, as well as in snow. I am currently get 21- 22 mpg , 90 % Highway driving at 60-65 mph. don't get fooled by hyundai 276 hp.. pilot have 250 hp, 253 torque.. plenty of power and torque for regular driving. pilot have excellent safety rating too.I believe honda will have better resale value.
The only CON I have with the pilot is paint job.. I can see 3 or 4 very tiny paint peeled out.. but you can't see with the naked eye. I can live with it..

I own a 2009 Pilot EX-L AWD and I just purchased a 2010 Santa Fe AWD GLS with the 4 cyl engine. I have only driven the Hyundai about 100 miles; however, I am pleased. In comparison, the rear leg room seems pretty much the same. The Pilot, though, seems like a much better built car - but that should be expected for the price difference. The doors, rear lid and hood are heavier when closing. The hardware, such as door hinges, hydraulic struts and other fasteners are definitely better in the Pilot. The ride is smoother in the Pilot and the handling much more refined. The materials such as the carpeting, seat covers and floor mats are superior in the Pilot. The fit and finish and styling of the Hyundai beats the Pilot hands down! All in all, I would purchase another Hyundai in a minute...but don't expect it to be a Honda.
