2007 Honda Pilot EXL vs 2010 Toyota Highlander Hybrid

Can you guys give me your thoughts and advice between these two vehicles:

2007 Honda Pilot:
102K KM
asking $10K
No back up camera
command start

Toyota Highlander Hybrid
168K KM
backup camera
command start
asking $15K
In terms of condition both cars are pretty comparable. I am looking for a family vehicle that is reliable. What are your thoughts, and suggestions?

Thanks!

Highlander that is not a hybrid would be a better option. Honda is junk.

Battery in the Hybrid is over 11 years old at this point - might want to see if there's a warranty that covers it.

My opinion is take 5K and put it as a down on a Toyota Highlander or Honda Pilot lease for 48 months - and bank the remaining 10k for something else.

Hmm good call on the battery. I am not really interested in leasing. Would like to buy something used that will last at least 5 years

The first gen pilots had many issues, I would go with the Highlander but yeah, I would get that battery checked out first.

A friend had a 2006 Highlander and the battery starts to fail last year. Replacement for new batteries is about 10k, used is much cheaper, a few thousand, but if they fail you are out of luck.
