With many Pilots 10 years old, 200K+ is becoming more frequent.



I think those owners who have 200K+ miles (or 320K+ KM) should have their own thread.

I think I started a 200k mile thread already awhile back with pics.

My wife's good old 2003 LX just reached 237,000 miles. It had issues with the front end, so we checked out the 2015 models. Now we have a 2015 Touring. I miss the old LX, but wow this new Pilot is amazing!

I have 210K miles. I bought it new and have done all the recommended maintenance including changing the timing belt at 100K and 200K.

Front End issues

Would you be willing to share with me what the front end issues were? Mine is making noise in the front end. Thank you.

No thread for 300k miles yet?

Noob here - just joined today. Thinking of changing my 2005 Pilot EX-L with 303,8xx miles due to the rear suspension + general road noise.

Hare Krishna!

I just traded in my 2003 EXL Pilot. It was in great condition with very little other than scheduled maintenance and 212,000 miles. Items replaced other than standard maint included door window motors, brake rotors, a/c damper motor. I did the 3rd timing belt kit myself at 200k with several great tips on this site...



I looked around at alternatives to replace including Volvo, Ford, Nissan, Toyota, and I couldn't find anything better than the Pilot Elite. Only have about 1000 miles but I'm thrilled with the new Pilot and all the up to date electronics and fancy features.


If somebody ends up with a great looking black 2003 Pilot with 212K miles I hope she serves you as well as she did form me!

In January of this year, my '03 EXL Pilot passed 200K. However, transmission busted on the way to Mammoth for skiing. It was skipping a gear (initially I thought it was 3rd gear), but I kept driving even Check Engine light was on. When we reached Mojave (a small town 1/3 of the way from L.A. to Mammoth), I drove to a small shop to check it out. Not surprisingly, the code was "Transmission". The mechanic offered to do a service for $300, but it was just basically changing fluid. I refused and did a test drive on the back road, and found that it was skipping 4th gear.

Since we would lose all deposits for skiing trip, decided to continue. I started the car with D3, accelerated until it reached about 55, and shifted to D. This basically bypassed 4th gear. When I saw uphill coming up, I accelerated to 70/75, and when it dropped to about 55, shifted to D3. I used the method all the way to Mammoth, and back home to L.A. Luckily, there was no other issue. When I got back, the transmission was rebuilt. It's not about 206,000, and so far so good.

242K miles on the '09. Burns about 1qt of oil every 4K miles or so. Otherwise, no troubles.
Burns or leaks?

Do you have a VCMuzzler?

Got a 2005 Pilot EX-L Navi with 227,000. Got the itch to replace it now. Up in the air on a Pilot or a Passport. Don’t need a third row anymore. Kids are grown. But it does come in handy in those rare occasions.
