Hey guys, does anyone know if parts and/or accesories for the MDX will work for the Pilot. Things like oil filters, performance parts, etc. I would think they would work, being the same drivetrain. What do you think?
I believe that you will find that the drive trains are the same; therefore, many/most items will be compatible.
Regarding oil filters, I believe you will find that all the Honda 3.x liter engines use the same oil filter. In fact, they appear to be the same engines with differences in stroke/bore as they increase from 3.0 liter [e.g. Accord] to 3.2 liter [e.g. TL] to 3.5 liter [e.g. Odyssey, MDX, Pilot].
A good souce is Tim at Hondacuraworld.com [genuine Honda filters at a great price]. Heck, everything that Tim sells is at a great price.
I wouldn't buy any Honda filters unless they were from Japan. Did you know that American Honda filters are just rebaged, overpriced FRAM filters? Also Canadian Honda Filters are FILTECH filters. I will never ever buy another filter from Honda again, especially for the price and uncharacteristic low quality.
Japan's filters on the other hand are some high quality Japanese brand.
