The 2013 Honda Pilot manual is just your type with a boxy SUV-like look unlike the usual jaunty ones, say Toyota Highlander or Nissan Pathfinder. It is a rugged crossover with a roomy interior and a boxy body. Pilot keeps up with Honda’s heritage with a smooth and pleasing sound. It has gained a place as one of the most fuel-efficient three-row vehicles. Yet another relief, the Pilot won’t look outdated as quickly as other crossovers because of its refreshing yet straightforward design on the outside.
The 2013 Honda Pilot Owners Manual has a 3.5b-liter, 250-horsepower V-6 with the highway ratings of 25mpg with the cylinder-deactivation system.

The LX and EX models are more affordable ones that include features like rear air conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry and even a seven-speaker sound system. On the other hand, the EX-L and Touring are more expensive but provide the buyers with leather upholstery, USB/iPod connectivity. A navigation system, BT hands-free interface and a power tailgate.
2013 Honda Pilot Manual Safety Review
It has scored decent ratings by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in all the different categories, including roof-strength. The score in The NCAP crash-test was four stars for frontal impact and five stars for the new side pole test. It is equipped with a standard rear-view camera system that helps with the visibility and side-curtain bags for all rows. The handling of the Pilot is quite responsive and is not clumsy even in tight city streets. It also has anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control.
The downside includes the problems caused by tall seating for short drivers like poor visibility while switching lanes. The interior is a bit different, as opposed to the traditional look. The instrument panel is a little uptight and overdone that makes it look a little fussy. Yet, Honda is consistently working on the meticulous, oddly framed grille for a better look. Fulfilling the expectations of the buyers, it is exceptionally roomy and has enough space for cargo with three rows seating for almost eight passengers.
As opposed to the standard vehicles of this size, even the third row of the 2013 Honda Pilot manual provides enough room for adults. The seats are comfortable and adequate size for comfort factor during highway hauls. One can slide the places in the second row according to the needs for enough legroom, and both the latter as well as third rows can be folded forward. The second to third-row splitting is 60/40.
The 2013 Honda Pilot Owners Manual stands off in the practicality. It has enough holders and bins to keep all the stuff while traveling, given the multiple passengers on board. The noise levels- the road noise, engine noise, and wind noise, are very well kept under-control and damped.
