2016 Honda Pilot Earns 2015 Top Safety Pick+ Rating from IIHS

2015 Top Safety Pick+

The 2016 Honda Pilot has earned a 2015 Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), once again showing that Honda knows exactly what it’s doing when it comes to automotive safety. Then again, we already knew that from all the Hondas that have come and gone through the years at Mama’s Used Cars.

The mid-size family SUV earned the highest possible score of “Good” in all categories, including side, roof strength, head restraint, moderate overlap front, and the tricky small overlap front crashworthiness evaluations.

The optional Honda Sensing suite is what allowed the Pilot to earn that extra + rating, rated “superior” by the IIHS. It combines a windshield-mounted camera and radar behind the grille to provide collision mitigation braking, lane keeping assistance, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, road departure mitigation, and forward collision warning.

“The Pilot demonstrates Honda’s commitment to achieving the highest levels of safety performance,” said IIHS president Adrian Lund. “The Pilot’s crashworthiness ratings set a high standard, and its optional front crash prevention system will help drivers avoid some kinds of crashes to begin with.”

When searching for a great used car, there are a number of factors to take into account before making your purchase. Of course everyone looks at things like the price, the mileage, and the year of the car, but how can you assure the car will be reliable to get your money’s worth?

Recently Yahoo! Autos put together their list of the “10 Most Reliable Car Brands”, using research they compiled in over a year and a half study with over 350,000 sample vehicles from all over the country. Most studies use two time frames, normal initial quality (90 days) and “long-term” quality (3 to 5 years), but Yahoo! Autos extended their time frames to make sure buyers were getting the most for their money.

The top five brands in the study were Chevrolet, Honda, GMC, Lexus, and Toyota – with Toyota earning the top spot. Mama’s used cars is proud to offer used models from each of these brands, including a 2008 Lexus ES 350 and a 2013 Toyota Tacoma PreRunner!
