I looked but cannot find if the 2005 Pilot has a 3-axis 5 speed transmission or a 4-axis 5 speed transmission. Anyone know which it is? Comments I have read in the forum say, for towing, it's good that the 2006 Pilot has a 4-axis 5 speed transmission not the old 3-axis 5 speed. Does "old" mean the 2005.

3 axis would refer to the 3 gear shafts inside the transmission. Main shaft, secondary shaft, and counter shaft. The 5 speed has 3 shafts. I believe that when HONDA added a 6th gear, they went to a 4 shaft design.

If you want see what it looks like inside, there are some YouTube videos done by Hiram Gutierrez, an ace rebuilder in Texas. Search for Hiram rebuild BYBA. He's good at it!
