2004 pilot LX with 214978 miles and the reason I am posting is I ran into a snow storm last year in the middle of Montana and the only ones on the road were me and and guy in a Ford F-250. I stayed with him through snow past the bottom of my doors and when we stopped he said he could not believe I could get through that with a "little" suv. I also have a 2003 and a 2012 pilot and here they have been life savers as my wife avoided a moose a few years back on icy roads.

I have a 2008 EXL Pilot. Original engine and trans.
The engine died on me last night while going down a hill on a backroad in rural country.
So far, I did my own repairs. I checked it out tonight and discovered that the timing belt broke.🤔
I bought it at 127,000 and it said the timing belt was replaced at 100,000. It broke now at 186,000.
So, will find out if the engine is ok.

Still driving my 2003 Honda Pilot EX-L. Original engine, new transmission at 227800- I just looked up my post from 10/18/16. It now has 248,605 miles, still going strong and is the sibling of a 2018 Honda Pilot EX-L that I bought new in October 2018. I use ol' Bessie for around the town trips generally-still quiet engine, drives well with a few rattles in winter. It's nice for the kids to have a car to drive when they come home to visit!

Did you mean the rear ac? Is this why you want to remove the center console? Thanks.

246K on my 04. New plugs, water pump and fluids at 100 and 200K. Front suspension rebuild and rear struts and shocks at 225, new motor mounts and a rear evap for the AC. All synthetic oil changes every 5K. Runs great, I'll start the 300K thread in 5 years

Just loss all transmission fluid (oil change at quick lube yesterday-coincidence? Probably) starting new thread on transmission fail safe after searching forums. Need CV boot replacement anyway- no noise indicated may just get all new both sides

low speed clunk in front end.
Think sway bar bushings.

Up to 227,000 mi on my EX-L RES. 24 states, 2 Canadian Provinces, several F1 races, countless life milestones and still running on the original engine and trans!

Things replaced so far (mostly wear and tear)-
-Shocks
-Brakes
-Radiator
-Power Steering pump and hoses.
-Timing Belt/Water Pump
-Tires/Normal wear and tear items after 13 years.

Otherwise just kept to the Honda maintenance schedule and have had no problems! The Midwestern winters have taken their toll on the muffler/exhaust pipe so that is the next major thing on the horizon.
