  1. 2012-2015 Pilot
    Hi all - I recently moved to Park City, Utah and was curious about getting a more suitable set of tires on my 2012 4WD EX-L Pilot for the climate here. I’m currently riding on a set of stock Bridgestone tires (can get the exact model later but I think they are a pretty general all season tire...

    Should I just go ahead and change the timing belt etc. when I hit 105000 miles? Or should I wait for the maintenance minder light? TIA

    I am currently divided in making a choice between Honda Pilot AWD (2018 and onwards EX-L or Touring trims) or Subaru Ascent (2020/21 Limited trim) as an 8 Passenger SUV. Trying to keep the two cars at par when it comes to the active safety feature set for a better comparison. I live in midwest...

    2010 Pilot with 190k miles. When turning the front defroster on, the air still continues to blow from the main vents, not the defroster vents. Any ideas? Stephen

    I just changed out my factory battery on my 2016 Pilot with a new Bosch AGM battery. The new battery very clearly says to not put it in an airtight container. Well, that's what the vehicle has. But I also noticed the bottom of the battery box has a vent blower installed on it, with the goal, I'm...

    Hello all, new to this community, thankful for this forum to be able to find answers, I'll try to be as concise as possible while still explaining in detail. My wife's 2015 PIlot died on her 2 days ago, the battery light and VTM-4 light came on when it did. I assumed bad battery, as it was over...

    Hi all, I'm totally new to this forum. I really need your help before buying a pilot. Currently I'm driving a real off road car with 4x4 control and low range gear (mitsubishi montero). I'm planning to buy a honda pilot as it has bigger space for the kids and camping stuff. My questions are...

    (As a backdrop: the older 4x4 2005 Pilot automatically uses 4 wheels when accelerating from stop, giving you a fast acceleration.) Unfortunately, there are few 2nd gen used Pilots in my area to test-drive. I need to know how the FWD and AWD 2009-2011 models accelerate from stop, on standard...

    Bought a 2014 Pilot, EX-L I have 2 remotes, 1 has hatch button that works for opening, the other opens the back hatch window. Is this something I can reprogram? Thanks Travis

    Changed 3/4 motor mounts around 5k miles ago. I know it’s not the best thing to do but in my situation.. I cannot gain access to the trans mount. My axles have about an inch or two of play towards the trans. I get a very bad what almost feels like a “sputter” while accelerating regardless from a...

    Hey everyone, I am in the market to buy an SUV and I was pretty sure I wanted to get a Pilot until my research brought me to transmission issues on both the 6 speed and 9 speed (including the redesigned 9 speed in 2019+). 6 speed tranny better than 9 speed for long term reliability? Or is 9...

    Just got a safety recall in the mail. Seems like it’s meant to solve the “instrument panel won’t turn off“ issue, or the “instrument panel blacked out while driving” issue. Seems like the issue most commonly occurs when people are using CarPlay. I’ve had the “wont turn off” issue happen several...

    We will be taking delivery of a new 2021 EX-L Navi in Platinum White Pear on Monday. Will be trading in the '19 EX-L Navi in Lunar Silver. I swore that after the '19 that I would leave the Honda family. But, I kept looking to see what other new vehicles were coming and not much impressed me...

    My neighbor's 2006 Pilot battery dies overnight if the horn relay is left in place. When it's removed the battery holds its charge fine for any number of days. The alternator tests good and the battery is new and there are zero other electrical problems. Does anyone have any experience with...

    A few months ago I parked at the doctors office for my wife's appointment, door worked as normal. When we were done it was raining so I went to get the car and when she attempted to get in the door wouldn't open. Fast forward to yesterday where I managed to get the interior panel far enough off...

    Finally got rid of the cassette adapter in the wife's Pilot and replaced the stock radio with this Pioneer. Install was pretty simple and I programmed a Maestro so she can keep her steering wheel controls. Just figured I'd post it up somewhere...

    I just de-greased and washed the engine on my 2003 Pilot (took the engine covers off first) because during the last oil change I noticed the bottom of the engine and tranny covered in engine oil. The oil change yielded much less than the 4+ quarts it should have had. Anyway, after the wash...
