My wife can't reach to clean off the top well. When the car heats up, if she hits the brakes, the snow will slide off the roof and onto the windshield. It's dangerous. I haven't had this happen so frequently with other SUV's.

Hey!!! That's not a Pilot!

How can I be sure those steps will work on a Pilot?

I would just step on the top of my rear tires to reach the roof when cleaning. The running boards are just barely good enough for me to reach the front part of the roof.

Looks like a 1996 - 1999 Toyota Rav 4. I've had 2 of those of the years and like them. Then I saw the Pilot and became "One with the body - Landru".

Have you tried one of those snow scraper/brushes with a long handle?

Or....

You could take off really fast and watch it come off the back...or stop fast and watch it hit the ground in front of you. But then...maybe that's just the lazy way to do it. I'll have another Chai and let you know later.

My problem's not snow, but water. Whenever it rains, I stop at least once during a trip and a wall of water from the roof tidal waves down the windshield, temporarily obscuring visibility.

I can watch the effect on the hood, as the water beads up and runs back toward me while in forward motion, but rapidly reverses course and splashes off the hood when I hit the brakes to stop. The hazards of a well-polished Pilot.

Either that, or for more extension, a broom! For those with running boards, it may also help a little to step up on them.

I also experienced the sudden "downshift" of snow/ice onto the windshield, and it scared the crap out of me!
