Does anybody have a hard to turn steering wheel at low vehicle speeds? Meaning when backing up out of driveway, slow turns at 90 degree intersections, etc...

Ours felt pretty bad so I took it to a dealer. They said the power steering pump had a leak and would cause that feeling of hard steering. Replaced pump and it still feels a bit hard to turn the steering wheel. Not as bad as before, though. Not sure if I'm imagining this problem or not.

Thanks
Mike

I would take it back tell them that its not fixed and expect them to refund what is due … the only thing left would be the rack n pinion ..did they mention anything on that ?

Thanks. No, they didn't mention it. It's such a hassle dealing with them but have to bite the bullet to get it right.

Thanks, I'll try that after getting an alignment. Does anybody know how Coast Honda's service is? Farther away from home but I bought the car there and was a very good experience, my first good experience buying a new car.

What is this “Fisher Price Edition” I keep hearing about? I’m very intrigued and can’t find anything on the internet about it.

back in the day Fisher price was a major manufacturer for plastic toys ..the gen 2 series Pilot has 98 % plastic items Not sure about the gen 3 , the Gen 1 pilot that I also have has much much less plastic items .. so Honda has teamed up with Fisher price to supply the plastic items for the Pilots :)

Oh haha! I was thinking it was some sort of exclusive thing. I think the 1st gen has more soft touch.
