Other than having friends that love their Pilot, I don’t have much history with working or living with them. I’m looking for an affordable older SUV that my kids and large dog can life with. I’m probably gonna get a MDX, because they’re the same price as Pilots and seem nicer inside.

I like this one better (1st gen, up to 2006). But I’ve heard the beaked gen (2nd gen) might be more reliable and a better buy.

Anyone have experience working on one yourself?
