Model Highlights

The 2009 Honda Pilot has bulked up thanks to its new styling, adding over an inch to its height and width and nearly 3 inches to its length. That additional length is noticed and appreciated with wider front and rear doors, allowing for easier access for all passengers.

Honda coupled these cosmetic improvements with several significant mechanical upgrades to further distinguish the 2009 model from previous years. All styles may still have the same 3.5 liter V6 from previous years, but these engines are not the same. For 2009, Honda increases the Pilot's engine output to an even 250 horsepower. The 2-wheel drive Pilot provides drivers with 2500 lbs. of towing capability while the 4-wheel version nearly doubles that to 4500 lbs.

Safety was not overlooked in the Pilot's redesign. Honda claims that frame now contains more high-strength steel than any other Honda vehicle. The new frame and standard front and 3-row side curtain airbags may have played a role in the safety accolades that the new Pilot has garnered. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded the Pilot its "Top Safety Pick" and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the Pilot its highest safety rating of 5 stars for both frontal & side impact collisions.

The entry level LX style is only available with standard factory equipment. However, this standard equipment list is a lengthy one, including front and rear power disc brakes, remote entry, power windows and locks, hidden storage well in the cargo area and lift-up glass hatch on the tailgate, a new item that is standard on the LX and the EX.

The mid-level EX adds available power front seats with heated leather trim. Also, drivers will enjoy the addition of an improved power moonroof that is 26% larger than previous years with a diffuser to minimize exterior noise while moonroof is open. The EX also is available with a selection of upgraded stereos as well as a rear seat entertainment system, which includes a DVD player complemented with a 512-watt 10-speaker stereo. To further appease rear passengers, the EX also provides a tri-zone climate control system with humidity control and air-filtration.

The top end Touring styles provide a level of customization that should keep most drivers happy, and adds equipment that is unique to this class. Front seat memory as well as heated exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals are both standard. Also, the liftgate is improved to a power liftgate that can be opened at the touch of a button. Most appealing, however, might be the addition of the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with Bluetooth connectivity and integrated rearview camera, exclusive to the Pilot Touring class.


Model News

The all-new 2009 Honda Pilot updates its current lineup with new exterior and interior styling along with a more powerful and more efficient V6 engine that features Variable Cylinder Management (VCM). This new fuel management system not only increases fuel economy but also manages increase both horsepower and torque from the 2008 version. However, the biggest change remains the addition of the new luxurious Touring class, which features leather seats and satellite navigation as part of an impressive array of standard equipment.


Value Writeup

Each style is available with 2-wheel drive or an advanced 4-wheel drive system that includes Variable Torque Management (VTM-4). However, the true value and strength of the Honda Pilot lies with its roomy interior. The redesigned interior adds an additional 2 inches of legroom to the 3rd row, possibly providing a rarity in its class: true 8-passenger seating. More impressively, the Pilot boasts 87.0 cu ft of cargo space when there aren't passengers to fill those seats. The addition of the new luxury Touring class may prove to be a boon to value-minded customers.

Summary
HONDA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2009-2011 PILOT VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM MARCH 13, 2008, THROUGH AUGUST 30, 2011. THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT THE STITCHING THAT SECURES THE END OF THE DRIVER AND FRONT PASSENGER LAP SECTION OF THE SEATBELT MAY BE INCOMPLETE OR MISSING.

Consequence
IF THE STITCHING IS INCOMPLETE OR MISSING, THE SEATBELT MAY DETACH FROM THE ANCHOR WEBBING, INCREASING THE RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY IN A CRASH.

HONDA DEALERS WILL CONDUCT A SPECIALIZED INSPECTION OF THE DRIVER AND FRONT PASSENGER SEATBELTS, AND IF NECESSARY, REPLACE THE SEATBELTS, FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR ABOUT OCTOBER 3, 2011. OWNERS MAY CONTACT HONDA AUTOMOBILE CUSTOMER SERVICE AT 1-800-999-1009.

Summary
Honda is recalling certain model year 2009-2013 Pilot and 2011-2013 Odyssey passenger vehicles manufactured from March 13, 2008, through December 21, 2012. One or more rivets that attach the airbag module to the airbag cover may be missing.

Consequence
The absence of more than one rivet could alter the performance of the driver's airbag during deployment. This could potentially increase the risk of injury during a crash.

Honda will notify owners and instruct them to take their vehicle to a Honda dealer. The dealer will inspect the driver's airbag module and replace it if necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on, or about, February 21, 2013. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.

Honda's recall campaign number is S75. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
