Well, Honda makes money either way.jediwebdude said:I agree with MIKEinTN...it looks like a CRV on steroids from the front. The back looks like a Nissan Pathfinder.
One Acura salesperson told me they expect MDX demand to decrease when the Pilot rolls out. He also informed me that the 3.8L engine rumor for the 2003 MDX is strictly a rumor.
I saw a Silver Pilot this morning in Rochester, NY. All of a sudden, I noticed what I thought was a new CR-V pulling up really fast in my rear view mirror. I got out of its way and as it passed me, I immediately knew it was the Pilot even before I saw the back because of its size. I wondered if I'd misunderstood the release date, but since it had no tags, I too presume it was in transit on the way to a dealer. However, I did wonder if they were driving it around town just to garner interest.kytang said:
I saw couple of new Honda Pilots in transit (on their way to dealership, I guess). I did not get out of my MDX and look closely of these new Honda Pilots. I did pull next to one of them. They looks very similar to MDX size wise. I am very interested in how Honda is going price the new Pilot.
I was actually thinking the Pilot wouldn't cost that much less.dmyles said:
The projected price tag ($30K?) was also a shock to me as I expected it to be a good bit lower than the MDX---- not just $5-8K.
