Just spoke with my dealer today. He has the changes for the 04 Pilot.

Drum roll please.......

The 04 changes are limited to the EX-L. It will now have heated rearview mirrors and heated seats.

05, the EX will see an in-dash 6 disk changer.

No other changes at this time. A sunroof "is still being studied." This is straight from Honda.

Thought you guys would want to know.

This info is straight from Honda. He read the memo from them over the phone to me.

That's fine, just letting you guys know.

In my 10 years of dealing with this dealer, they have never given me misinformation before. If you guys have dealers that you have relationships with, they all got the same memo.

Well, FLORIDA_GUY, if the above news is indeed verified by Honda, does this mean you'll go ahead and buy a 2003 Pilot, probably at a big discount!? Or are you still too concerned about possible quirks???? :confused:

Sorry to keep posting.

But also, the dealer knows that I spend a lot of time on this board and specifically called me as soon as he got the info so I could let you guys know asap.

I believe what he is saying is 100% correct. Also, Odyssey gets the 6 disk in dash changer in 05.

Hope all this gives you guys some good info.

It would make since for dealers to start hearing news of new models now. Since in a few months o4's will be hitting the lots.

At least it's some news about the 04's rather than no news at all

According to my contact, pricing will not be determined until the 04 vehicles start to ship.

He told me that Honda wants to hold the line on price as much as possible, however he also told me that if the past is any indication, there will be a slight increase in MSRP on the 04.

So it is really up in the air. Apperently, Honda is very tight about pricing until the last minute.

'04

What would really be nice is for Honda to pay attention to things that should be there standard from the factory, such as a complete roof rack and an insulated quiet ride, before they start gouging for more options.

I have to wonder about the Nav System. It might not appear on the memo because it's not new. I had heard that the '04 Pilot Nav was going to be enhanced to match the MDX.

Any thoughts?

Nav was never mentioned on the memo that he read to me.

The only Pilot mentions were what I posted.

Stands to reason that it would be upgraded, in light of it being in the new Accord and MDX, but who knows.

He also mentioned that Honda has responded to dealer gripes about the current Civic SI hatchback. It will be coming with larger wheels and an aerodynamic package and a bit more power.

Nothing else was mentioed RE: Accord, Civic or others.

This is my thinking as well but if I were to find out that this assumption is not correct it would very likely change my time table for buying the Pilot.

Thanks for the response and for posting the memo info.

It is certainly the strong leading contender but I have not completely eliminated the Highlander from contention yet. I am not seriously considering anything else though, at the moment. :)
