Looks real good
My first thought was waitwhat, wow!I would love to know how a vehicle that's this clean underneath has any body rust at all.
If that's legit (i.e., not just an undercoat sprayed on to make everything look perfect), then its great. My skeptical nature tells me it might not be legit, though: everything is one color, and it looks like there are some rough spots under the perfect finish. The rusty exhaust pipe and axles in pilot-u3 look fishy to me. In pilot-u5, it looks like the lower control arm in the lower right is rusty, but nothing else is. That doesn't add up.
In my opinion, a seller trying to hide rust cannot be trusted, even if its "just to make everything look better".
Of course, I'm a skeptic and I'm just seeing your pictures. Like I said - if this looks legit when you're under the car, it looks great.
actually you guys are correct on this ... The original undercoating for the gen 1 pilots is green. At least that's whats on my 06 I purchased mine from 10 miles on the meter so I know it's the original..those pics looks like the Pilots been patched up and ready to go... I would pass on this
Agree. If rust is sprayed over, there's no way to know what's underneath. First-gen Pilots have few fatal flaws, but unibody rust is one of them. Covering up swiss cheese with rust killer still leaves you with swiss cheese. Further, you have no idea what else has been hidden, and given the effort someone went to on the undercarriage, that other stuff probably won't be easy to find until it fails, too.Personally, I would pass and start looking elsewhere. There are too many red flags to ignore.
