Honda Pilot Repair since 2002

At its debut, the Honda Pilot essentially defined the emerging market for midsize crossover SUVs. The Pilot was released in the summer of 2002 as a 2003 model and was designed to fill a large American demand for a larger SUV with third-row seating. The Pilot has been designed to provide handling similar to that of a car, while also being able to withstand towing and light off-road use, and the second-generation Pilot's all-wheel drive system enables it to wade through 19 inches of water. The Pilot was exactly the kind of vehicle that working families, who enjoy the outdoors but who were leery of the minivan stigma, were looking for. A+ Japanese Auto Repair has seen hundreds of these vehicles over the years. Our clients typically use them to transport family to and from the ski resorts in Lake Tahoe all winter. Otherwise they are fuel efficient daily drivers you can count on. There is nothing like the reliability of a Honda.
