I've had my Pilot for about 2 1/2 months now, and I love it. However, I did have some problems the first month that almost made me regret getting one. First off was the so called scrunch or in my case, it was a very light icking sound that seem to come from the driver's door/window or seatbelt rack. Anyway, they replaced the door seal but I think it is still there, though not as bad. The worse one I had was the left rear suspension. Everytime the car turned right or went over speed bumps, the shock would make a rubbing clunk noise which was very prominent and loud. I went under the Pilot while had my wife bob the Pilot up and down and I pinpointed the noise coming from the lower portion of the left rear shock. Sounded like the damper for the shock or something. Went to the dealership and waited 30 minutes before I talked to a service advisor. Then I test drove with a mechanic to verify the sound which he did. I then told him exactly where it was coming from. So I was told I would be contacted later that afternoon if it was finished. Never received a call. I called and they said not done yet. Called again and they said around 5pm. I gave them till 6pm, no calls. So I called and the person told me it was ready. Went to the dealership to find out it was not ready and they couldn't find the problem. So I raised hell and asked for a manager who was no help. So I filed a complaint with the head of servic e dept and dealership. My car is there for two days and now all of a sudden they found the problem, which I told exactly where it was. I told them that I personally pinpointed the noise and they had 5 mechanics who can't figure out where it was coming from? BS!!! Thne they tell me I had to come back a week later for them to install the part which is special ordered. And another week passed and I get a flat tire, lol! I was starting to hate this vehicle and this dealership (Norm Reeves Honda in Ceritos, CA) which I have bought 4 Hondas from and referred friends to. I really wanted a 04 4Runner but my wife talked me into buying a Pilot which I love now but still hasn't fully captured my heart. I still love my Accord V6 coupe. I hope things get better for this Pilot.
