I just had to purchase a new pilot due to being rear ended and it totaling my 2016 pilot.

My problem is when my pilot has been parked overnight my brake pedal locks. I noticed it a few days after purchasing it and drakes thinking something was wrong. I have to push pretty hard to compress the brake enough for the engine to start. I contacted my sales guy and he said don’t push that hard and just hold the button longer. Well that only turns car on not the engine. I always park in my driveway which is a slight incline so I use the parking brake as well. Lastnight I didn’t use the parking brake and it still was locked this morning. I can not compress the brake without force.

Anyone else experience this? Could it be a safety feature or a defect?

Normal, been a ton of posts on this. Seems to be more prevalent when temps are cold. Just press the pedal enough to start the engine.

It’s normal. I don’t notice as much on my pilot but in my wife’s cr-v it’s very noticeable and as soon as the engine turns over it’s super easy to press it.

My Pilot Touring 953 miles just started having to press brake very hard to start engine. Dealer told me this was normal.
