2004 Pilot EX, 218000 and running like the day I bought it in 2005 from my brother, with 38k on it.....I have a few LEDs out in the AC control panel, but since I've driven it for 14 years now, I know where the buttons are in the dark....LOL....been one the best vehicles I've ever owned....a year into owning it, I had to replace a transmission speed servo ( or something like that...Long time ago...LOL)....I wish I could buy another one EXACTLY like this one, but brand new....I love the body style, the ergonomics inside, the seats (all of them)....just love this thing....hope to go over 300k and beyond....I do my own oil changes every 5k.....been that way since I bought it in 05.....have used everything from TropArtic oil, to STP Synthetic, to Quaker State Synthetic....nothing really fancy or high dollar, just change it religiously every 5k.....tranny services every 50k.....brake fluid changed every 3 years....never had any work on the front end or the had it aligned....and it still drives straight down the road, every day!

2003 Pilot EX 324K miles original transmission and motor. I follow the maintenance manual and change the oil regularly. Still runs and drives great. Only thing outside regular maintenance replaced, Front struts, steering rack and 2 front axle assemblies. I change the brake pads (4 times) and 5 sets of tires. I'm the only owner and the majority of the mileage has been highway at 75 - 85. Can't complain going to see how much I get out of this.

I have a Honda Pilot 2004 with 194k. Engine is pretty good if you do your oil and change on time. Transmission is good. I bought it when it was 183k. Mine sometimes act little weard on the transmission but is running fine. It just on some moments lose when I do transmission oil change every 40k on all my cars. But on Hondas you can miss that, those automatic transmission need more maintenance that other cars. On Manuals not too much. So I did it when I go i I used to have a hard starting problems, which I thought it was the spark plugs or coils. Installed a old ECU but the problem persist. I changed the fuel pump and still gave me this issue, so I finish replacing the entire assembly kit inside the tank where the fuel pump goes and after that its start very well at the first crank. One of the symptoms that the Pilot used to do is that I have to crank the start like three times to start when the car was hot. Crank but No start. When it was cold it used to start well at the first crank. Inside the kit there is a filter that was clogged. Honda always says that there's no fuel filter on this truck, but there is one inside the tank inside the kit and is not the strainer. The strainer is after the Fuel Pump, but inside the kit assembly is also another one. Is like a paper filter. This Pilot have this issue and is most of the time this is your problem. If you change the pump, but not the assembly kit with a dirty filter, it might still bring low pressure to your injectors if the filter is clogged. In my case I was getting around 10psi and when replaced the assembly start getting around 45-60psi which is the correct pressure. So do it right the first time and replace the entire kit. It cost me like $85.00 in Autozone with the Filter Delphi already in.
Thanks for the Heads Up!!

Just bought 07 Pilot with 186,500.Mechanic did brake all around and lower control arms, and got it to pass emissions here in NY. Just drove it 600 miles to Adirondacks and back. Car took it like a trip to the Deli for a 6-pack. Nice car. Best I've ever owned.
