  1. 2017 Touring - windows down and sunroof open

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Hello - Last night - doors locked and windows up. This morning - windows down and sunroof open. We did not do this. Strange. Any known security issues?
  2. Unbelievable Mileage

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Toronto - Haida Gwaii - Vancouver - Toronto 7.9L/100km as per the display. I am happy enough. And - Android Auto and the ACC were magical.
  3. Idle stop on 2017 Touring model question

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Auto stop is a terrific feature - makes loads of sense.
  4. '17 Elite owners: Was the Elite worth the upgrade over Touring?

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Probably old enough that change of mindset is improbable. Always an interesting phenomena. Tough one. The human being driving is the least safe aspect of any vehicle. Removing the driver is a the most progressive step.
  5. '17 Elite owners: Was the Elite worth the upgrade over Touring?

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Straight up wanderer - it seems we have a similar education though likely have been immersed in different cultures. Yes, batteries as most people understand the are a stop gap. Times are definitely changing. The Honda Pilot drivetrain does not take advantage of any of the merits of...
  6. '17 Elite owners: Was the Elite worth the upgrade over Touring?

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    It is an internal combustion engine with thousands of moving parts. Essentially unchanged since 1912. Electric is dramatically superior. Though - the Pilot does not currently offer this as an option.
  7. Picking a Pilot (which one) or a CRV

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Get a Pilot. Buy the one you like. Have fun.
  8. 2017 CDN Tire Tires - anyone in Canada get Winter tires at CDN Tire?

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Hello - Picking up our new Canadian Touring this Friday and I want to immediately install winter tires and steel rims. I have always bought tires and rims at Canadian Tire due to superior service and warranty. Has anyone gotten winter tires and rims at a Canadian Tire. I prefer to not...
  9. Powered Dashcam

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Hello - Does anyone have a dashcam in their 2016-17 Pilot? Powered? Nicely installed? Just returned from Taiwan where dashcams are mandatory and saw some nice installs. Makes sense to have one. Thanks - B
  10. Snow tires?

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Winter tires and rims are a wise move.
  11. 2017 Pilot Prices Paid

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    2017 Canadian Touring ( US Elite??? ) GTA dealer $58K CDN out the door. Not a great deal but just wanted to get the order in.
  12. How does Pilot with stock tires handle rain and snow?

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    If you are driving consistently in temperatures below 4C ( 40 F ) - install 4 winter tires. In many places you get a reduction in your insurance rates for having winter tires.
  13. 2018 Accord Loses V6 - Will The Pilot Follow?

    General Discussions
    Either engine is in the dinosaur category. There are many better alternatives - ideally we will see a hybrid or pure electric Pilot sooner.
  14. Worse experience with Surrey Honda (BC) service department

    Your experience
    The disastrous service and attitude at Honda dealers almost dissuaded me from buying a new 2017 Pilot. I go to Canadian Tire for: tires and oil changes. If you purchase at Canadian Tire - rotations are free. If your winter tires are on rims - the winter/summer switch is free. I get the...
  15. Release date Pilot 2017 - do you know

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Toronto Honda - though I might rather Parkway Honda. Very important on my list of criteria was that the salesperson be a woman.
