I've noticed while entering parking lots that in low speed turns (< 5 mph) I hear a grunting / groaning sound from the front of my Pilot. It happens going left and right, and going through pretty tight turns. Our parking lots here in KS often require a hard left and right turn to get into them, and that's where I notice the sound.

I'm sensitive to this sound because I got rid of my Jeep Grand Maintenance Nightmare because it had this same sound, which turned out to be bad bearings & worn differential gears. Will some of you fine folks please turn off the fan, stereo etc. and give a listen next time you're entering a parking lot?

Thanks!

I've noticed a noise as well when I turn the wheel even slightly. It isn't very loud but sounds like the transmission kind of 'grunting'. I too am a little concerned about it. Anyone else?

Did you get the towing kit with coolers?

If so redo the instructiuons for getting the air out of the system.

If not have a dealer look at it.

Nope, no towing kit

I've listened, and not heard a peep from my Pilot. I enter sparking garage every workday morning, and make a few low speed left hand turns, and haven't heard anything two mornings in a row.

I need to make an appt to get the oil changed so I'll add the transmission noise to the list of things I'd like to get checked out.

Thanks for the input!
