you can't order a Pilot with navigation and the rear-seat DVD
Kelley Blue Book

The base 2008 Honda Pilot has enough standard features to satisfy most; more expensive versions load up on all kinds of electronic extravagances.

The Pilot is available in four trim levels: VP, SE, EX, and EX-L. Standard equipment includes, but is not limited to: power windows and locks, manual front and rear air conditioning, remote keyless entry, machined alloy wheels, XM Satellite Radio, six-disc in-dash CD player, tilt steering wheel with audio controls, and cruise control.

Edmunds notes that stepping up to the EX brings a power-adjustable driver's seat, auto climate control, and HomeLink but not satellite radio. The SE slots between the EX and EX-L, and it's equipped with cloth seats, a sunroof, satellite radio, the DVD entertainment system, and a 115-volt power outlet on the front console. The EX-L adds leather, a sunroof, satellite radio, heated front seats, and either navigation or a DVD entertainment system, "but you can't get both." Mother Proof also mentions there’s no auxiliary jack for an iPod.

ConsumerGuide has mixed feelings about the navigation system, which "is easier to learn and use than most, but its screen is small and the driver must stretch to reach the main toggle control."

Some reviews read by TheCarConnection.com are not fond of the tailgate, which lacks an opening glass partition, and the seat warmers that may not be powerful enough for everyone.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
