  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. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. Replacement Tires

    2003-2008 Pilot
    I replaced my stock Goodyear tires last year (January) with the Pathfinder Sport S AT tires which are made for Discount Tire by Khumo. The P245 70 R16 tires are one size larger than stock but ride just as good if not better, handle all weather thrown at them, have a nice all terrain aggressive...

  7. McKees 37 Trademark Tire Rejuvenator and Coating

    Detailing
    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...
  8. Weather Tech cargo mat and cargo net

    Accessories
    I eventually went with the Weather Tech cargo mat and have been very happy with its durability and quality. I also purchased the front mats for my Pilot and love them. I bought them from Advance Auto (yes AA carries them now) with a coupon and speed perks rewards discount. WT is never on sale...
  9. 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...
  10. Larger A/T Tires

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Still very happy with these tires......yesterday after dropping my wife off at the Charlotte Douglas International airport I drove home in a steady rain on HWY 485 and moderate to heavy traffic. I accelerated to go around a few slow autos in the fast lanes and when I was clear to change lanes I...
  11. 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?
  12. 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...
  13. Larger A/T Tires

    2003-2008 Pilot
    I replaced with p245 70 r16 Not too sure about that size but the p245 70 r16 set that I bought from Discount Tire (Pathfinder Sport AT made by Kumho for DT) leave plenty of clearance and visually really fill in the wheel wells. Beginning of the year I went on a 1000 mile road trip and the...
  14. Largest tire to fit all original pilot

    Tires and Wheels
    Arrived back home from the 850 mile trip on Thursday and the Pathfinder Sport All Terrain tires were great. Drive to Charleston (Isle of Palms) was fast and dry with speeds upwards of 90 mph with minimal road noise. Had to slam on my brakes at 70 mph when someone brake checked me and the tires...
  15. P/S noises

    2003-2008 Pilot
    I was hearing noise out of my power steering also and after doing some research I found that the first possible fix was to replace the power steering fluid without completely draining the system through the bottom of the vehicle. I went to Harbor Freight and Tools and bought a fluid transfer...
  16. 2006 black exl door molding peeling

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Thank you for walking me through the process, that might be something I do at a later date......Youtube is a wonderful thing!!!
  17. New KYB shocks and struts etc. installed

    2003-2008 Pilot
    The new suspension has made my drive more comfortable and made me feel much more confident in the way it handles when needed. I am told that someone that is proficient with automotive repairs can do the job but to make sure it is aligned right after the repairs or there could be serious issues...
  18. 2006 black exl door molding peeling

    2003-2008 Pilot
    Thank you everyone for your responses and insight, it is frustrating to say the least. The Pilot is over 10 years old and is approaching 220,000 miles on the body and interior. The engine and transmission have 100,000 miles on them and many other parts under the hood and the suspension are new...
  19. 2006 black exl door molding peeling

    2003-2008 Pilot
    I have a black 06 pilot exl and have noticed that the plastic door molding has some issues. The clear plastic (clear coat) on the door molding has begun to become hazy in color and has started to flake/peel off of the surface. I am not 100 % sure but it may just be a coating over the panel...
  20. Bumper removal help

    2003-2008 Pilot
    I have a 06 Pilot exl and the outside bulb is a beast to get out, and if you do not make sure that it is securely screwed back in later on you might get water in the light when you go through a brushless carwash. I have found that if you first disconnect the wiring from it and then GENTLY use...
