Scotty, new to your website. I was wondering if you could give me some recommendations on a "reliable 7 to 8 passenger suv." We had a 2005 Honda Pilot that we bought in 2013. It had 135,000 miles on it when we bought it. never had any problems with it until now. 2 weeks ago it started making a fluttering sound. It still drove well, but didn't sound good. I couldn't locate where the sound was coming from. I took it to a shop and they said they found metal shavings in the oil pan. They said the top end was fine, but that the main bearing was the problem. It now has 216,000 miles on it. Never have had any problems with it up to this point. Changed the oil every 3 to 4 thousand miles. And the only work done on the vehicle was brakes and a year ago we had the timing belt done. For a 3 year warrantied remanufactured engine installed they want about $6,500. I'm leaning toward getting another vehicle, but don't want to buy new. If you could give me some advice, it would be appreciated. Thanks.
