So sick. Love to see it. I'm at 220k and things are starting to fail on me, that'd be awesome to get to 250k.

Mine also has some problems. The fan motor doesn’t go on so I keep a rubber hammer on the floor and hit it. Door locks don’t work. It’s still runs.

Needs a little vacuuming, too. :)

Which fan? If it's the one under the center console for the rear blower, vacuuming it can make a world of difference.

Rear blower thermistor (aka thermal resistor aka transistor). Just did this and that was the cure.

But start by seeing if just cleaning the rear blower motor fan with a vacuum cleaner might do the trick. To clean the rear blower fan, remove the driver's side panel under the center console between the driver's seat and the gas pedal. The panel just snaps out and it's easiest if you start pulling near the gas pedal.

Thermistor installation tips:
  1. Remove wiring harness connector.
  2. Depress little black metal tab just outside housing and rotate old thermistor clockwise so notches align and it pulls straight out easily.
  3. Install new thermistor by sliding in and rotating counterclockwise so notches no longer line up.
  4. Rebend little black metal tab to hold thermistor in place if necessary. It should snap into place.
  5. Reconnect wiring harness.
  6. Test. If it works you've just saved hundreds of dollars.

No it’s the one in front under glove box. I cleaned that rear blower motor screen last year made a big difference. It’s a beach fishing truck now.

2008 pilot. 250,000 hard towing miles and still all original.
Congratulations - I just replaced the oil pan at 177,000. The catalytic converter gets replaced after I get my tax refund (fingers crossed)

We have an 08 FWD- 194K on it.

Still runs well.
You did also replace the cabin air filter right?

This pic would be so much better if the hood wasn't up! LOL

Nice pic and story though!

Im impressed with how much weight you tow. My concern would be getting up certain ramps when the boat is loaded, and way more concerned about coming to a stop on the roadway while pulling that sport cabin.
