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).
