    Then call it a crossover. It's not a truck and has nothing in common with a truck. I just think its funny to see the Pilot called a truck.

    Why are people calling the Pilot a truck? Doesn't make sense to me.
  4. ECO mode noise/vibration

    2009-2011 Pilot
    doc-011, Good info, thanks. I have drove in D3 for awhile and the vibration is still there. I will talk to the dealer tomorrow about the trans fluid. pplmover, We feel it in the steering wheel and the seats, the most annoying part is the "rumble" you hear. After driving around yesterday it...

    UPDATE: The Honda dealership is having a rep from Honda come drive our Pilot. Hopefully we can get this fixed soon.

    ANOTHER UPDATE: The Honda dealership had the Pilot for 3 days.........................still not fixed. They said they are waiting for the Honda tech line to give them direction. We have the car back for now.
  7. ECO mode noise/vibration

    2009-2011 Pilot
    No, not true for our Pilot. It is the eco/vcm mode on our pilot. The vibration happens anytime the vcm is activated at any speed. If you accelerate the vibration goes away. What you are describing is different than ours.

    I wouldn't worry, it's a great car. Not all of the Pilots have a bad vibration, I have test drove 2 others this week that had little to no vibration when using the vcm/eco
  9. 2012 EX-L ignition sticking at startup

    2009-2011 Pilot
    Our 2011 has done this twice. Both times the outside temp was under 20 degrees and the car was parked outside. When it's parked in the garage we have no problems. Has anyone noticed if it happens in colder weather?

    I agree. I'm hoping they figure it out. I don't like that they are "trying" new parts and then removing them, I hope this doesn't cause any issues down the road.
  11. ECO mode noise/vibration

    2009-2011 Pilot
    UPDATE: I talked to the service manager today, they changed the wheels and tires and drive line today and still felt the vibration. The "snapshot" they took of the computer while driving shows everything is normal. They do acknowledge that the car has a vibration. Now they are waiting for the...

    2009-2011 Pilot
    The Pilot goes in to Honda today for one last try. They want a tech to drive it with a computer recording the shift point and eco mode. I'm not holding my breath but we will see what happens. We took a 400 mile trip over the weekend and it drove us NUTS. It felt like a tire was out of balance...
  13. ECO mode noise/vibration

    2009-2011 Pilot
    The service manager at Honda called last night, after talking to the Honda tech line he said it is a normal function of the vehicle. There isn't a service engine light on so Honda won't do anything about it. I guess it might be time to start car shopping again, we are bummed and VERY...
  14. 2012 VCM Shutter/Vibration

    Problems
    We are dealing with the same issue on our 2011. Been to the dealer multiple times, still not fixed. :-(
  15. ECO mode noise/vibration

    2009-2011 Pilot
    We love our Pilot, this is the only thing that we don't like. I hope Honda steps up to fix the issue. I was hoping someone would post that they had a fix from Honda.
