  1. 2016 - Metal shavings in oil pan

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Since I haven't heard anything about the "Chirp" in the 9 speed transmission for quite a while now, I forgot all about that. It was a pretty big discussion for a while when that generation of 9 speed was put into the 2016 and 2017 Pilots. There were several owner's who had transmissions...
  2. 2016 - Metal shavings in oil pan

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Glad the short block will be covered by Honda Care. You may also have a loaner included if you need one since Honda Care now covers one for any warranty repairs. Must not have been low or out of oil as that would have been a pretty sure denial of any engine damage claim.
  3. 2020 EX - Wife hates cupholders - please help

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    The bottom of my front console cup holders on my 2019 Touring are right around 3" in diameter. The mason jar holders mentioned above are showing 3.1" in diameter. They should fit in pretty well as others have found. Shown in post #48 following the link above "Rubber cup holder inserts" in...
  4. 2016 - Metal shavings in oil pan

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    If you mean the oil pan than metal "shavings" can result from a "spun" rod or main bearing. The engine doesn't have to have been run without oil. Spun Bearing If you mean the transmission oil pan, than yes, something from the transmission such as the torque converter or internals.
  5. Collision Mitigation Braking - Can it be adjusted?

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    My 2019 also randomly has the big orange "BRAKE" light come on when on certain roads with a slight curve to the right. The PDF of the owner's manual online (578-580) has 3 pages explaining when this can happen. One of the conditions is in fact when the road curves.
  6. 2019 Honda Pilot Actual Price Paid thread.

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Yep, my 2019 Touring AWD was $1345.00 online for the Honda Care 8/120000 coverage with $0.00 deductible. I got mine from Hyannis back in June of this year.
  7. 2016 Pilot Elite Blown Engine at 118,000 miles!

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    There are Valvoline, Mobil, and Castrol instant oil change facilities all around here. I am sure they are not using the cheapest crap they can get when their name is on the business. You can also get the proper oil from Jiffy, Take 5, or the other chains I am sure as they usually have a graded...
  8. Dashcam

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    One other thought, while the car is stopped at a light or driving below a certain speed, the ACC and LKAS don't display anything. They are speed sensitive. A dash cam will continue recording while stopped or moving at a slow speed and will pick up anything in it's field of vision. Handy to...
  9. 2016 Pilot Elite Blown Engine at 118,000 miles!

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    "Quick changers don’t give the super hot engine internals a chance to cool down to ambient (room) temperature before refilling with cold oil. That causes thermal shock, which some brittle metals (rings) don’t cope well with." Sleepwalker, you sound like you do work and maintenance on your own...
  10. Dashcam

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    It's easy enough to install a dash cam and pick up the power from the floor fuse box by the driver's left foot. I don't think I would want to try and collect any data from the ACC or LKAS since who knows what parameters they need to run at. Also, I don't even know if that camera renders a true...
  11. Buying a 2016 pilot —beware!

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    I'm a little bit confused. Are you saying the extended warranty will not cover your repairs? You said Honda sent you packing saying the car was out of warranty. Did you actually get it repaired under the extended warranty and you now want Honda to pay the deductible? Is your extended...
  12. Anyone Swap MDX Door Mirror Glass?

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    OK, didn't realize you had the Elite with those upgraded mirrors already.
  13. Voice Command Problems with Android?

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Have you tried a complete reboot of your phone? Also remove it from your car phone device list and then reenter it.
  14. 2018 Pilot Touring Skids Fwd and Stops when Remote Started in Sub Zero Temperature

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    That's pretty strange indeed. I know that if I shut off my 2019 Pilot while it is in drive, the transmission is automatically put into Park, not sure if that feature is on your 2018 but I would think so. The cars should also protected with a neutral safety switch, which will prevent the car...
  15. Anyone Swap MDX Door Mirror Glass?

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Not sure about the fit, but have you looked into perhaps getting yours tinted? I was curious and did a little searching and saw that some people did in fact have good success doing that. What about switching your mirrors out with some from the Elite or Black Edition which have auto dimming...
