  1. Post if you have 200k miles on your 2003-2008 Pilot

    2003-2008 Pilot
    I have almost 260,000 on it and am sure that the original engine would have made it but the previous owner burnt the engine out when he ran the radiator dry and kept on driving without realizing what was happening. The engine and transmission were replaced while still together with 120,000 less...
  2. Front struts: What has worked for you?

    2003-2008 Pilot
    I also opted for the KYB shocks and struts through a great deal on Amazon. They were a bit stiff when I first started driving on them but now, a couple of years later, my Pilot rides like a dream. They are still stiff enough to give me great performance but also smooth enough for me to...
  3. Largest tire to fit all original pilot

    Tires and Wheels
    Tires size on my Pilot Discount Tire brand Pathfinder Sport S TA P245 70R 16 (made by Kumho) put on my stock 16 inch alloy rims and it looks nice and aggressive but remember with a larger circumference tire your speedometer will not be correct. Your vehicle will be going faster than the...
  4. New KYB shocks and struts etc. installed

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Just breached 250k miles on the Pilot last month and the KYB shocks and struts have softened up a little, just enough so that I don't feel EVERY bump at 95 mph on hwy 485 around Charlotte NC. I am still very happy with the decision to go with KYB, still handles like it is on rails when on curvy...
  5. 2006 Honda Pilot EX Ticking noise

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Good thing you did check your plugs because one of my plugs backed itself out and before I could get it into my mechanic it fell into the friggin engine. My Pilot went into limp mode thankfully and would not let me go any faster than 25 mph. Ruined one of my cylinder solenoids (I think that was...
  6. McKees 37 Trademark Tire Rejuvenator and Coating

    Update on application of Mckees tire coating is an A++++, I have had the same coating on my AT tires through snow, ice, rain, and mud and they still look awsome! Not too shiny, not too flat black, just right for my taste. Again, no sling ever and they seem to repel dirt! You do have to spend the...
  7. Glove box rattling noise

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Something like that actually did happen to me in my friends early 80's prelude when we were in college. We woke up after a all night party and were driving back to our college in the mountains when I had this strange feeling that I was being watched. Sure enough.....a small field mouse was...
  8. Polish/wax that does not stain blk trim?

    Meguiars Ultimate Liquid wax and D151 but there are other products out there.....just google search it or check some of the detailing sales sites. good luck
  9. Door pillars

    I have also recently discovered that Meguiars Ultimate Liquid Wax works wonderfully to bring them back to their original appearance with a little more shine. Waxed my 06 Pilot in October and the pillars still look great!
  10. McKees 37 Trademark Tire Rejuvenator and Coating

    I have purchased these two (McKee's 37 Tire Rejuvenator and Coating) for my Pilot's AT tires to try and keep them from constantly browning/blooming a week after washing. I plan on following all of the steps, especially the scrubbing before applying the coating but wonder if anyone has any...
  11. Glove box rattling noise

    2003-2008 Pilot
    I have still not replaced that hot/cold air mixer yet but also found that part of the noise was coming from the locking hardware for the glove box. The screws that held the hardware onto the glove box, the part that swings down, had become loose. I tightened them down and half of the rattling...
  12. Master Cylinder ruined my rear calipers...etc.

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Yeppers, and I am usually on top of simple stuff like that but this time it cost me a bundle. The calipers were probably towards the end of their life but I really screwed the pooch on the master cylinder having to be replaced. Live and learn.......right?
  13. Sound System dilema

    2003-2008 Pilot
    First question is which entertainment system do you have? If it is the DVD system with the headset and device hook up in the back seat arm rest area between the drivers seat and front passenger seat then you are in luck and it is a cheap solution. I bought one of the cables(AmazonBasics 3.5mm...
  14. Master Cylinder ruined my rear calipers...etc.

    2003-2008 Pilot
    It would screw on but not lock into place and would pop up on one side. It would apparently be secure at times but after driving a while would pop back off.
  15. Master Cylinder ruined my rear calipers...etc.

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Okay, the title was a little dramatic but the issue started in the master cylinder reservoir. The lid that twists onto the top was not securely on the reservoir and over time and dirt road driving I guess, debris worked its way into the reservoir and in turn was sucked into the master cylinder...
