I just bought a new 2019 Pilot (had a 2009 Pilot for 10 years). My new Pilot is only a few weeks old and already the rear bumper has lots of chips in it. My old Pilot never had this issue. The new Pilot's bumper is a different design - it has a very sharp edge to it that is obviously susceptible to items being loaded and unloaded. It's a bad design. We load and unload golf bags a lot, so I'm sure that this is the culprit. However, the design and paint are obviously bad - the old Pilot never had this problem. I called Honda and they said they don't have an issue with this. I'm sure we aren't the only ones who have this issue! The Honda Rear Bumper Applique that they sell does not cover this sharp area, so that is useless. I guess I'm going to have to get the bumper repainted and place a protective laminated film over it. Anyone else experiencing this issue? Honda should acknowledge that this is a problem. This is a brand new vehicle!
