Its supposed to burn cleaner than most gas cars, Some type of New Diesel engine with albumin injection to complete the carbon burn off in the converter...
we will see.
they have had a few problems with GTI models and turbo fail on the autobahn it could be the 120 mph's engine temps..Them parts are glowing at that speed.. they may need extra high temp coated valves...
Wife drives an '06 Honda Pilot.
I was happily driving a '98 Toyota T100 4wd truck until I got rear-ended 3 months ago. Totaled the truck but it died protecting me except for a cracked knuckle on one hand. I'm now driving an '08 Honda Ridgeline (also happily).
We've had extremely good service and reliability from Honda (Accord and 2 Pilots)/Toyota (Tacoma and T100).
