Ok, so it’s no secret that I am SOOOOO over my minivan.
I mean, come on, I only have 2 kids and I’m not having any more (at least not planning to). Do I really need a minivan?
I do like having 3 rows. I do love the trunk space. I do love the comfort. I’m just not in love with my minivan.
I recently had the chance to drive the Honda Pilot. Wowza! I’m in love….with a car…..
|Look how beautiful….and clean. My minivan is never clean.|
The Pilot was awarded the 2012 Top Safety Pick by The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. That speaks VERY highly with parents. It is outfitted with side and curtain airbags, 3-point seat belts, anti-lock brakes, and LATCH on each rear seat (even the third row!).
This 4-wheel drive SUV seats up to 8 comfortably. We were able to fit two booster seats and an adult in the backseat with no problem at all. (No more making a third adult sit in the 3rd row…it’s so hard to hear back there!) Not to mention it has tremendous cargo space for storage. Under the trunk is another storage compartment, great for keeping items out of sight. With the third row down, the Pilot has the space of a small pick-up truck.
The Pilot has fun technology too! I mean, come on, it says “Welcome” when you get in the car…does your car do that? The Bluetooth HandsFree Link and navigation system with voice recognition makes me feel like I’m in “KITT” from “Knight Rider.”
My kids loved the DVD rear entertainment system with removable remote. I loved the wireless headphones!
|So many nifty techy gadgets…|
|Storage is a MUST with kids!|
|And of course, all the “Mommy touches.”|
The Honda Pilot is perfect for families, large and small, with busy lives who want the comfort and safety of a midsize SUV.
How do I convince my husband that we need to head to Honda right now?
