2021 Honda Pilot 8p touring

Hi guys,
Planning to upgrade to Honda Pilot 2021 8P Touring (4 year lease) from a Honda CRV EX-L 2017. Honda dealership says I'll get a 1% loyalty rate reduction since I'm an existing honda customer if I get into a new lease. Is this a good Family SUV? Any feedback will be appreciated. Also, please let me know what's the best price (lease amount per month) that I should be paying for this SUV?
I'm going in for a test drive today to see how the car drives..

Dealership offering $670 per month including taxes for 48 months lease. Is this a good deal?

After much bargaining, the dealership is now offering me $290 biweekly/ $628 per month (all in) for a 48 month lease. Good deal now?

Are you putting any money down on the lease?

The Touring has a well known problem with unbearable noise of cracking and popping sounds from the infotainment system. You can check out this thread to see if there has been any successful fixes for it: https://www.piloteers.org/threads/rando ... te.107474/

Great deal. I wouldn't be too comfortable signing a lease for 48 months as that is 1 year without warranty, but that's just me (and I happen to lease a 2021 Pilot EX-L for 36 months).

Honda gave me a 1.49% rate reduction on a new lease this month

Edit: On loyalty, leased a new Accord though so it may change based on vehicle

ok finalized the lease deal at $605/month for the 2021 Honda Pilot 8P Touring at 0.99% interest. Zero down.. 80k limit for 48 months.. not sure if this is a good deal but jumped into it since my current lease is coming to an end in June.

How do you like the Pilot so far? I'm in the market for a new SUV and I've been eyeing the Pilot for sometime now.
I currently have a Mitsubishi Outlander and 3 growing boys....the extra room would be nice to have.

had one for almost 4 years. it was a great vehicle. put just over 76k. on it. the only issue was a center speaker that was damaged, and replaced in the first year.
Replaced it recently, only because it no longer fit our needs(and the kids constant complaint in the 3rd row(it is small for an adult size person- my 12yo daughter is 5ft5...)

you got there a decent deal. enjoy it.

Just walked away a little early from our 3 year 2019 Touring 8P.

Great car, loved it except for 2 things:
-This was a lease takeover but had we had the choice, would have gone for the 7P Touring. With 3 kids under 5 (and therefore 3 car seats), it was a hassle every time we wanted to put it on the 3rd row to bring the grandparents along for example.
-The Central console screen was not super stable. Rebooted a bit more often than we want would want (not every week but maybe twice a month). Known issue apparently on these

That's a great price btw. Was paying 950$ Tax in per month (but got a nice check due to lease takeover to reduce this monthly invoice)

FYI, the Touring is assembled in Trump country (Alabama). Only the CRV is assembled in Canada I believe.


PS: If you're headed to Montreal anytime soon, I have a set of winter mats (OEM) & 4 x 20" winter tires on REPLIKA wheels that are easily good for another 2-3 winters for sale :)

It's a good car but when I cross-shopped it with the used Q7 I ended up buying, the seats felt like plywood in comparison

Lol, nobody cares about this comment

We all have our own preferences.

I have a highlander. Didn't end up cross shopping with the pilot because I liked it and.... Well... Done.

Some here will tell you that if you didn't buy a model y you did yourself a disservice.

I definitely miss some of the extra cargo capacity the Pilot would have had. We have a Thule topper now. But also the Q7 can tow 7700lbs so if I ever want to get a travel trailer there is a lot more flexibility.

Certainly. Use of the vehicle needs to be factored.

My initial intention was a pathfinder due to the extra 1000lbs towing on certain years. After driving both the pathfinder and the Highlander though, my mind was made up. Also... We didn't end up buying the travel trailer. We have rented and pulled a few though. Considering some air bags in the HL to give it some help in that dept.
