I just bought a Honda Pilot LX and have driven about 500 miles so far. I live in New York city and as a consequence have to drive a lot on pot-holed roads, both big and small, on both highways and local roads.

The Pilot suspension seems a bit harsh even if driven on small bumps or holes. On some larger bumps there is even a slight tendency to bounce. The Pilot IS VERY smooth on good roads.

Would like to know if anyone else can comment after driving on similar roads. Has anyone had a problem with the suspension so far?

My first suggestion is to check the tire pressure. When these vehicles are shipped to the dealer, the tire pressure is raised for transport.

What were you driving?

First check the tire pressure, then check your expectations.

I experience the same problem and I also drive in NYC. My tire pressure is 35. Should I lower it to 32? That’s how it came from the dealer. I think that when it’s cold out, having tire pressure a bit higher might not be a bad idea.

Thanks, will check the tire pressure. I was driving a 1987 camry sedan, so it should not be too much to ask that the Pilot suspension be better than my old car!
