05 with 213000 miles (343000 km). Still runs great. Did front motor mounts and timing belt last year. Regular fluid changes and routine maintenance and thats it.

Maybe start by getting one of those super cheap Bluetooth OBD2 scanners that connect to your cellphone and see what codes you may have.2004 Pilot EX • 🚙 280,000 😁
an annoying check engine light that has been on and off for about 5 years (that apparently no one can agree on why it is on) But, my car just shrugs it off and carries on! I hope she runs forever!
Holy Hannah! I have an 04 with 280,000 on it but you knock it out of the park with 328,000! Good for you! I too have owned Honda’s most of my life. I can’t imagine ever owning anything else.I have an 06 EX with 328,392 as of his morning. Still my daily driver (75 miles/day) with original engine and tranny. No major issues at all. I bought it used in 07 when it had about 16,000 miles on it so my wife and I have done the rest. It was her daily driver up until April of 17 when I took it over when she got a new CRV. I do all my own maintenance and just replace the oil and filter when the maintenance minder tells me to (using whatever is on sale) and I replace all the fluids (oil, tranny, brake, coolant) when I do the timing belt every 100k. I changed the original starter in October of 2019. I'd say that 13 years on a starter that is used at least twice a day is very respectable. I did the axle shafts on both sides at the end of 2016 (257k). Other than that its been belts and brakes as needed.
I've been toying with the idea of buying another car but I'd really like to see how long this one will last. I've owned Honda's most of my life and love them. When I bought the CRV in 17 I traded a 1999 Accord that 308k that was starting to have issues. Based on how this one is performing I don't see any reason it won't go to 400k.
Anyone out there passed 400K on a pilot yet?

Axle shafts go from the transmission to the front wheels and are what drives the vehicle. I changed them because the rubber boots around the CV (constant velocity) joints were cracking and would eventually lead to failure.Holy Hannah!

but tell me...”you did the axel shafts at 257,000 miles”...? Tell me why and what in the heck are axel shafts? 🥴
Thank you for that information! Sounds like something that I should have my car guy check on mine! No wonder you are at 328,000! You have knowledge on your side too!

Do you have any codes? I’d check the O2 sensor before doing anything else as it can have a big impact on fuel economy if it isn’t working properly2006 Honda Pilot: 240k miles. Thinking about replacing my fuel injectors soon as I don't know what else to do. I get horrible gas mileage (11-14 mpg) no city driving. 55-65mph.
