Yup, I'm nearing 100k miles. Probably hit it on my way home from work. The Pilot still runs like a new car. I'm proud to say with 100k miles I've only had one problem requiring a trip to the dealership. At 80k the driver's power window motor went out. Other then that, this things just keeps on going and going and going. I just recently had a new set of tires put on and new brakes.

Now everytime I bring it to the dealer for a regular oil change they keep trying to sell me all other sorts of preventative services. What general preventative maintenance would you reccomend so I can keep this rig running for another 100k? On the flipside what things would you just leave alone and let the thing break down before doing anything?

Doesn't look like I change a thread title once it's been created. Only the subject heading inside the thread changes.

Actually sblvro, I'm amazed you have a Mitsu with 203K miles and running!

C'mon... lets hear from the other "old timers". Post if you have 100k+ miles on your Pilot!

You do - to keep track of when to change the oil and rotate the tires (and other routine maintenance). :)
Yes, but I only compare it to the silly sticker on the windshield, then subtract 2000 (because my dealer still uses a 3000 mile interval), then give it about 2 seconds on thought as to when the next trip is, and tell the wife, "Hey you need to drop this off on your way to work".

Then forget about it for a couple of months.

Only knew it was over 120k, because I was putting gas in about a week or so ago, and it was the first tank where we were over 120k.

Don't buy a Pilot from this man. Wonder if he changes the oil.
Of course I do! Duh!!

Every 4000 to 6000 miles depending on driving.

bought used in Jan2007 with ~97000 miles, we now have almost 115000 miles and still going strong. the only persistent problem has been the second row passenger door sometimes sticking and of course the vibration at ~70mph.

100k+

I now have 115k on my '04. Changed the oil every 10k and have a sample checked every 20k. All reports are normal. The only time it suggested changing more frequently was one time I used the cheaper Fram filter. Castrol 5w-30w syn blend.

I have 101K on my 04 EX-L. Just had the timing belt and water pump changed by the dealer, along with both drive belts and the coolant. Was pleasantly surprised to get out the door for about $675. I was expecting to see a bill for over $1000.

My EX-L runs great ... hope to get another 100K on it before I give it to my son.
