I guess this may be a good item if you never use the 3rd row seat. If the 3rd row seat is upright, you cannot have the cargo cover installed. If you want to take it down, there is virtually nowhere in the vehicle where it will fit for storage. I basically wasted my money as we always use the 3rd row seat. It would be nice if Honda would include this fact in the literature on this accessory.

I have a 2013 pilot with power gate. cover does not seem to fit correctly at the connection point--off by just a hair. wondering if the 2012 and 2013 interior designs are slightly different.
as others stated, there is a gap of about 1-2 inches between 2nd row and cover with seats in reclined position. gap is 3-4 inches with seats upright. not much of an issue for me, because I have my seats back at all times.
in additon, as stated by others, no way to use shade with 3rd row up.
think this is a decent product. the fit issue is not a deal breaker, though not as nice of a design as they had for my 2008 pilot which fit snug against the seat, allowed you to have 3rd row up and connection points were clean/lined up.

Same comments as above regarding storage and 3rd seat usage. (I usually have the third seat folded down. That is why I purchased this)In addition I will say that all cargo covers I have had in the past have completely covered the cargo. Depending on the second seat position you will have an open gap of 4 to 6 inches of "daylight" into the cargo area. So if you want to have material concealed totally you have to be careful about placement.

It's good when you need it but as the first review says, there's nowhere to store it when not needed. In the previous Pilot models, you can stow it in the compartment behind the 3rd row or actually use it behind the 3rd row also. Why Honda decided to take those conveniences away, I don't know. I bought this so I assumed it can be used behind the 3rd row like my 05 Pilot as it gives me a mini-trunk configuration.

very nice to have to hide luggage or packages or any other items you do not want someone to break in and steal.
