    Great. Now if they only have not made it so weird-ugly up front (grille) and so BORING the rest of it.

    So what happened to your universal hatred of the SUVs? Honda's getting a pass?

    Ed drives a Honda minivan.

    IF I drove a minivan, which I never had to, I SURE would drive the KING of Minivans, the Honda ODYSSEY.
    My post was CRITICAL of the Pilot's UGLY GRILLE. I never said I'd be seen dead in a StupidUglyVehicle Automitive Atrocity. I drive DRIVER's CARS.
    I am a BIG Honda fan in general, I drove an Accord coupe into the ground, I still drive a Civic hatch in my summer home, but my main drive is a "Magnificent 7" Bond-mpbile (see "Tomorrow Never Dies" Hamburg Bond Rental) Look-alike BMW 7 Series I bought for peanuts in 05.
    And, JKD, do keep up. The PILOT was NEVER an SUV in the first place. It is a stupid CROSSOVER, ie an obese station wagon w 4 wh drive, BUT UNIBODY construction, NOT "Body on frame" like TRUE SUVS and Pickups are.
    $4 and $5 gas, and probably $10 if idiots do not wise up, has driven most StupidUglyVehicles off the highways, and the US this year has a BIG drop in oil and gasoline consumption, and this will only intensify as the Fleet gets replaced with Efficient Compact and Midsize CARS taking the place of the DINOSAURS Breadvans on Stilts that can't HANDLE.

    Just how exactly is the Oddyssey the king of minivans? I see Sienna beating it in pretty much every category and every mag.
