  1. 2020 EX-L Sirius XM question(s)

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Sat radio is garbage for me. I live in NH and lots of trees and mountains. It cuts out a lot. It will cut out for a few seconds and will come back halfway into a new song. My radio can time travel!! LoL. My trial is almost over but I won't be paying. It's too much money to listen to the same...

  3. Hate my 2017 Pilot EX 6 speed Transmission!!

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Had the 6 in a Ridgeline, a 2017 pilot EX-L and in my 2019 EX-L. Not one issue with it. Works great and shifts fine. Far superior to the 9 speed. Maybe you just got a bad one. My car takes off pretty good.

    Thats a lot of work. Would have been easier to buy THAT vehicle lol. Good luck though and welcome to the group.
  5. Flipping spare tire

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Well I did say as long as it's not a blow out, but I disagree on repair. I'll find and repair a hole faster than you can change a tire. Guarantee it.
  6. Flipping spare tire

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Who uses the spare?? I carry a repair kit and compressor. As long as it's not a blowout, I fix tire right on car. I'm happy to say I haven't had a flat in years though. Never use fix a flat. That stuff is nasty. It is a good idea for extra storage though.
  7. No volume control for parking sensors / cross traffic

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Maybe. I guess I just don't rely on sensors to tell me what I'm doing. My eyes do all the work, the sensors are annoying to be honest. I drove a long time without sensors on my cars so I don't really use them. Maybe someone will come out with aftermarket sensors that are a bit louder. Until...

    STELLLLAAAAA!!! Hi šŸ˜
  9. No volume control for parking sensors / cross traffic

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Nope. I find the sensors loud enough. The fact that they're sensors means you wouldn't be able to change the volume. They're self contained little units much like an old blinker switch on your fuse box. They're as loud as they are. That's it! Get miracle ear! LoL
  10. Stop leaking from driverside head gasket

    2003-2008 Pilot
    If your head gasket is leaking, change the head gasket. Don't use those additives that "seal" your gasket, they don't work. You're mixing fluids with a bad head gasket. I'd check the oil if I were you, probably nice and watery.
  11. Key FOB

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Haven't had that happen to me yet. I've just found my windows open a few times. If they put something like this on the vehicle, they should make it possible to disable.
  12. Key FOB

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    You can't. Awesome right? Worst "feature" I have ever seen in my life and zero way to disable it. It's happened to me several times. Luckily never while raining, but it's possible. Every time it rains I run to make sure my windows aren't open. Thanks Honda!
  13. How many is too many?

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Yeah it's not a good transmission. Even on the new models it's a bit iffy. 9 speeds is unnecessary. I like my 6 lol. Had it on my other pilot and my Ridgeline before that. Not one issue. I know people want all the extras that come with touring or elite but I'm good with the EX-L. I'm sure others...
  14. How many is too many?

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    98k on a Honda is nothing! I'm not a fan of going above EX-L though.
  15. Underpowered brakes

    2016- Third generation Pilot
    Using better pads is a start, but it's the system itself that's garbage. It's just not a good brake system. I've had old beaters that had better brakes than this car. I love my pilot, but Honda is cheaping out here and there lately.
