  1. Pilot vs MDX Transmissions by year

    2003-2008 Pilot
    The radiator problems on 05 seem to be in the early part of the production year. Didn't stop me from pre emotive replacement (after a friend's early 05 had a failure) Prior to a holiday seasoon 2500 mile drive with car full of family. the 03/4 recall solved the transmission problems there.none...
  2. does anyone have a 2017 Honda Pilot with the 2012 Honda Ridgeline (235/60R18) wheells installed on their pilot?

    Tires and Wheels
    Those wheels (and wheel nuts) will work great. Just make sure the overall diameter of the tire you select matches your stock size.
  3. Highway vibration

    2003-2008 Pilot
    There is a massive thread on first gens with 75mph type vibration. For some (myself included) new tires fixed the problem. Others went hole hog replacing multiple parts with some improvement. Tires though would be my first stop. As they age and degrade.....things happen.....
  4. EX-L and EX Suspension Differences?

    2003-2008 Pilot
    No differences to my knowledge. You can check on one of the dealer sites like Bernardi to be sure. There were differences between the MDX and Pilot suspension back then. But that was mainly a matter of tuning and a rear suspension brace
  5. 2017 Pilot Touring windshield replace issues

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Did the glass place install the correct spec windshield? If the camera can't look out, it will never be able to work.

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Are you using the shift release lock on the steering column?
  7. Trouble Locating Horrible Odor

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Forgotten fish smell....that was my brother's worst ever. Every Car has an air vent exhausting air from inside the car. I don't know where the Pilots is but commonly they are hidden behind the bumper cover. I'm thinking some animal chewed through the vent to gain access to you car and died...

  9. 2006 HONDA PILOT rough idle

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Bad idle. Drove ok at speed CEL kid calling from 100 miles away. On a Saturday of a Holiday weekend. I guessed bad EGR, bought one before store closed. Drove down to "rescue" it and swap cars. Took a ton of patience and PB blaster before I could squeeze my fat fingers in there and loosen the...
  10. Help with rattle on 2007 Pilot

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Sounds loose heat shield like. Loose cat converters are obvious at idle. Loose heat shields rattle as you accelerate away.
  11. 2006 HONDA PILOT rough idle

    2003-2008 Pilot
    When my EGR went, I just replaced it with another from my local NAPA. It's been 100% fine since then. About $75
  12. Full-size spare question - tire matching

    Tires and Wheels
    Smart move to be cautious. But with That 1000 miles scenario, (been there with 1000 mile trips many times) I might suck up the extra cost with the same tire on the car anyway. After all the Difference in cost between a cheap tire and peace of mind for your family's safety is worth the price.
  13. Full-size spare question - tire matching

    Tires and Wheels
    really depends on your goal. If you want to use the spare as part of a five way tire rotation, yes matching tire only. If as a temporary spare, same size will do fine.
  14. Wheel alignment

    2012-2015 Pilot
    Some of the best potholes I have ever found are in NJ and PA..... I have receipts for tires and wheels to prove it.....
