    Hello, Got a 2018 Pilot Touring June 1. Had towing package installed to tow my Coleman camper (~3500lbs). Mid July had error code for engine and took in to dealer to have fuel injectors replaced (recall). Dealer has auto alignment sensors on floor as you enter the bay. So this car went over...

    We received an transmission over heating message while pulling a utility trailer that was bo where near 5000 lbs. The dealer said we needed a cooler, why do they say it can tow 5000 if it has to br modified to do so?

    I just joined this forum. I'm considering a 2016 Pilot Touring at Carmax. I currently have a 2016 CR-V, but am awaiting a fiberglass camper trailer that is being manufactured - it has a dry weight of 1,100 lbs. I am running into problems with technicians not wanting to hard wire a CR-V and...

    Hi, I have had no issue towing my 18-foot sailboat behind my 2011 EX 4WD. It is well below the 4500 lbs limit. I barely notice it is there (aside for the noises it makes that is). I am looking to upgrade my boat which would put me very close or right at the limit. Does anyone know if there is a...

    Hello, I am the proud owner of a new 2022 EX-L! I had a beautiful 2020 EX-L (6AT) but last month an Inexperienced, 5 Weeks licenced, driver thought they could cross main street traffic withouth checking. I t-boned her passenger side and all our Airbags deployed. My 1st collision ever, since...

    Anyone have experience pulling 5000 pound boat/trailer with a 2WD Pilot? I’m not looking to tow very far, just 2 miles from storage to the ramp. Any trouble on the ramp? Thanks

    Trying to decipher the tow package options for our newly purchased 2021 Pilot Black edition. We ordered the 5000lb package through the dealer but can't get a straight answer as to what all is included. We've been told by the dealer we purchased from (after several discussions between sales and...

    I am thinking of buying a 2008 - 2010 Pilot to pull a converted cargo trailer.I have seen lots of references to “towing packages” but can’t figure out whether there is also something that needs to go in under the hood ( a”cooler”?) in order to beef up the towing capacity, and what the capacity...

    Did anyone have a similar issue they were able to fix? We have an issue with our 2017 Honda Pilot AWD having a shimmy only when towing. It occurs from 60 to 80 MPH (that is the fastest speed I tried) but that is as fast as I have tried. It does not appear to be speed dependent as it occurs...

    I am a traveling Respiratory Therapist. I was going to add a towing set up but a 22 ft Minnie Winnie deal fell into my lap. So now I am having to add a towing package sooner than later. I am getting confused about what I need. My thought is to buy Honda parts for what I can then get the rest of...

    I'm looking for the better solution (I don't care the price if the solution is good) to upgrade my 2016 Pilot to do off road. The biggest concern with 3rd gen Pilot is ground clearance. I know that I can put bigger tires but, at best, it will only provide 1 more inch clearance. Also, I'm towing...

    Hello, First, this site has been so incredibly helpful for me! Thank you. After a lot of research and reading, and finding a smokin' deal on what I'm looking for, I think I'm almost ready to take the plunge. We are avid car campers and ready for an upgrade! TV - 2013 4WD Honda Pilot EX-L...

    I read the previous thread on recommendations for a brake controller that will work with my rig. I have 2019 Touring pilot AWD with dealer fitted hitch and transmission cooler. I will be towing an RV travel trailer but I am having huge problems getting a brake controller that works and getting...

    Well, I somehow managed to remove my first attempt at this post. I think editing it made it disappear. Oops! I'm giving take 2 a try! ---------------- Hello Everyone, I'm excited to be a new Pilot owner & to have found this group! We picked up a '17 Touring this past Saturday. We already have...

    What is the consensus with weigh distribution hitches on a 2011 pilot. I know the manual says not to use one but the place I’m buying my camper from suggests one. Anyone have problems if they did use one? I am going to be pulling a Jayco hybrid camper that is 3400 lbs dry. Any insight on...

    Newbie here curious about what other Pilot owners are towing. We have a fourwinns h190rs, a relatively light bow rider. The trailer has both surge and electric brakes however ive never used the electric brakes because my older vehicles only had the 4 pin harness. The receiver hitch has a sticker...
