Honda Just Changed The Game Reviews 2020

Rev up your engines now people are always asking me what kind of SUV should I buy well they’re often asking about theHonda Pilot I got one I’m gonna show you the truth about Honda pilots the goodthe bad and the ugly and as usual nobody’s paying me to makethis video I’m just using my 52 years experience of working on cars to chayathe truth from a mechanics perspective somebody who actually works on them I can tell you the truth now pilots were originally made in Canada no they maycome in Alabama so we got the good old Alabama boys building them now if youwould have told somebody decades ago that Alabama boys are gonna be buildingJapanese sports utility vehicles what’s the world come to and they make a decent vehicle it has its pluses and it’s minuses it’s like any other vehicle let’s go tothis particular one which is a 2012 as you can say it was made in Alabama got115 thousand seven hundred and sixty nine miles on it it’s got a lot of bellsand whistles any modern car has dual air conditioning systems i screen on itdon’t feel either seats and when we got on the back the heck up a lot of roomfor seats and things you can carry if you fold them down as we let itopen itself up you can see things got a lot of space there’s no arguing that you can fit a lot of people in one of these when this thing was new in 2012 it had the bestepa gas mileage for an eight passenger vehicle with three row seating that wassold in the United States now you got to take something in consideration there thisparticular one in town gets whopping 16 miles a gallon it’s just about in 2012when you had three row seating and ain’t passenger vehicles right they didn’t getsuch hot gas mileage specially in town but let’s face it that’s not what youbuy a big vehicle like this for you want comfort you want long range now under the hood a reliable Honda v6 engine not race worthy by any stretch of theimagination on this having vehicle and that’s where the transmission itself area little bit weak I even asked my transmission expert he said wellScotty when you get 130 hundred and forty thousand milea lot of times you start feeling the shifting get a little jerky you canrebuild it and fix it of course but he also said they might go well over 200thousand they’ll still go down the road but they just won’t shift quite as wellwhen they get that higher mileage these are not the same clunkers if they put itin the Honda Odysseys they had all those problems were Honda had to replace a lotof transmissions for free these are really reliable five-speed automatictransmissions up to a certain point this particular 2012 is especially good theway it’s set up because it’s only two-wheel drive it just has drive shaftsin the front the back wheels just free will so this is a front-wheel drive nowthey do make all-wheel drive versions but I advise people not to buy thembecause my customers who did many of them had automatic transmission problems and if you got a repair an automatic transmission on an all-wheel drivevehicle price just gets astronomical because of all the extra stuff that hasto be taken off because it’s all-wheel drive so if you’re thinking aboutgetting a pilot my advice stick the front-wheel drive now the downside ofthis car is a lot of people complained that the handling and ride wasn’t exactlywhat they wanted that it was a little snobby handling and it’s ride was alittle rough but a comparable vehicle the Acura MDX which rides a lot betterhas more power take it 2020 Acura MDX they started atforty four and a half thousand dollars same company max from Honda makes acura where 2020 Honda Pilot it starts $31,500 now that’s a $13,000 difference do youreally want that little bit extra power and a little bit better handling and alittle bit smoother ride but you’re gonna spend $13,000 for not old Scotty.

I’m too cheap for that sort of like in the olden days people would say oh I’m gonna buy a Lincoln and I’d say why don’t you buy a Ford it’s the same company theyjust charge more money for the Lincoln’s they got a little bit extra chrome and afew fancy things but it’s the same basic car made by the exact same company solet’s say you’re looking for an eight passenger three row seating SUV I’d gofor a pilot before I go for the acura it’s the same company and I’d say the$13,000 difference myself of course I’m so cheap oh and I knew either one I’d wait till they got older by use one and pay less than$13,000 an old car not just save $13,000 now if we go to the reliability one ofthese pilots they’re pretty reliable vehicles there’s no arguing that like Isaid I wouldn’t mind all wheel drive version because they can lead to somevery expensive repairs down the line but I do have to say I every single customer of mine that bought a Honda Pilot the first hundred thousand miles I mean the onlything I would do to change the oil and filter maybe the brake pads and maybe a fan belt that’s about after they’re well made vehicles now yes this is a heavyvehicle it’s over two tons the weight is like 4,500 pounds so they’re not whitevehicles you’re not gonna get fantastic gas mileage you’re not gonna get perfecthandling you want something to take eight people all over the country in heyyou might think about one of these and if you take the non Honda competitiontour like let’s say a Toyota Highlander these things they handle better and ridebetter than the Highlanders do just like people who often want a sports sedanthey’ll get an Acura car that handles pretty sporty but it’s still a four-doorsedan well people that are looking for kind of a sports SUV and they want to golower price pile it’s a decent choice sure the Acura MDX is a lot more fun todrive that’s a lot more horsepower handles better but like I said theystarted $13,000 more than these babies do in all honestly I have to say I’m asingle customer that ever bought a new Honda Pilot and didn’t like the car theywere all pretty happy now used most of my customers are still happy with theused pilot they bought the exception of a couple of them that gotall-wheel-drive ones and the transmission went out and it cost them afortune and one poor soul that didn’t have me check out the car before theybought it and it turns out they bought a car that had been flooded out and hadone of those stupid salvage titles you can call it salvage it can sayreconditioned they got a lot of thanks for but that means it was totaled by aninsurance company in a case of my poor customer I started doing some researchand found out that that car had been flooded up and hurricane sandy of allthings and some evil wine took it from New Jersey andretitled it through different states and sold it in Texas and they didn’t knowwhat had happened to it until it was too late and I do I have to say that I would have found out it was a flooded car if theywould have paid me to check it out before they bought they bought it fromthis really sleazy guy on Craigslist then when they called them back he neverreturned the calls and it was just a cell phone yeah they couldn’t find outwho owned the stupid thing and the title wasn’t even in the guy’s name it wassome guy he originally owned it in New Jersey when it was flooded out inhurricane sandy so have a guy like me check out a used car before you buy itdon’t trust anybody except the mechanic who’s testing it out for you and eventhen make sure it’s an honest guy because say you’re looking at a Honda ifthe only thing the guy works on are Honda’s you might have ulterior motiveoh he’s gonna buy that I’m gonna make a whole bunch of money tell you acar is good when it is I think I like meat it works on all kinds of cars cantell you yeah that’s a good car no look somewhere else we’ll tell you the truth about them mechanically and electronically so you can make yourown decisions so now you know the truth about Honda pilots and why you mightchoose this over say in MDX it costs $13,000 more or maybe you don’t careabout the $13,000 and you’re buying MDX or buy a Lexus SUV that’s even a littlebit higher it’s your money you can do whatever you want with it I’m justtelling you the truth about all the different vehicles so you can make areal decision based on the money you want to spend the attribute you want toget and the longevity that you expect from your car and here are some bonusquestions and answers all right and Ford says that they have sold out their 2021 Ford Mustang Mach E first edition now realize that that’s the first editionone which is the special one it’s supposed to be the fastest one whichwould only make sense people are gonna buy the fastest one first but there’s areal caveat here it’s a big caveat bananas they’re not telling you how manyof them that they’re making they’re estimating that they’re gonna make fiftythousand of the Mustang Mach E the first year but they’re not saying howmany first editions they’re making so the kind of hedging their barrier andthey’re not releasing the figures of how many of the half saw it sucked if youask me this is kind of a tongue-in-cheek thing oh look we saw them all out yeahwell but my first edition ones and we’re not telling you how many we’re making Imean come on now that’s kind of a that’s kind of real sales gimmick now have noidea what it even means who knows when they’re making 50 hundred, or a thousand they said they’re saying they’re making fifty thousand of theregular ones but they’re not including those are all sold they’re saying that themach E first edition ones are sold so more advertising hoopla thrown out tothe American public, so if you never want to miss another one of my new car repairvideos, remember to ring that Bell.
