What’s the life expectancy of a 2004 Honda Pilot?

I have a 2004 Honda Pilot that’s still running great. I don’t drive a lot, so for as old as it is, it has really low mileage—around 150,000 miles. My friends are all teasing me to get a new car, but I feel like my Pilot still had plenty of miles in her! What’s the typical life expectancy of a 2004 Honda Pilot?

Unless your friends want to make your new car payments, they should keep their sassiness to themselves, are we right?
The good news is that a well cared for 2004
Honda Pilot
can last upwards of 250,000 to 300,000 miles. The key phrase here is “well cared for,” as rigorous
maintenance schedule
and prompt
or replacement of any worn out parts is crucial to maximizing the life of a car.
has a reputation for making some of the most well-built and reliable cars around, and many owners of first generation Pilots have reported getting mileage well into the six-figure range. RepairPal gave the 2004 Honda Pilot a 4/5 for reliability, and ranked Honda in general as the number one automotive brand for reliability.
The low mileage on your Pilot bodes well for longevity, too. Most US drivers put around 14,000 miles a year on their cars, but you’re well under that mark—meaning that at the rate you drive, your Pilot should be on the road for many more years to come. Long story short? Take care of your Pilot, and it will take care of you ! If your friends give you any lip, then they’re more than welcome to take a hike—or the bus.
