I feel the same about the gas mileage. One thing I noticed to improve this is not using "FULL AUTO" AC. This seems to keep AC ompressor on all or most of the time. I keep it in "AUTO" and turn AC compressor ON and OFF manually. This seems to improve mileage a little. I am getting 15 to 17 these days though I have filled the tank only three times so far and my Pilot still has only 700 miles.jat20 said:I picked up my EX-L with navi on Monday, November 17. I love the Pilot. It drives like a car. Very roomy inside, nice outside. My only problems are the front seats sagging and the gas mileage seems to be really bad. So far on a half tank of gas I only got 100 city miles. That would average out to about 10 mpg. Can someone tell me if this gets better?
'04 Pilot with 1600 miles as of this weekend - just completed a 400 mile round trip. We got 20 mpg on this trip, the first all-highway driving I've done in this vehicle. Not bad considering we were dring in the mountains of western Maryland - we drove up to Deep Creek Lake from Bel Air, MD. Half the time the engine was rev'ing at 4000 rpm pulling us up the hills at 70 mph, the other half we were coasting down the other side. I did notice that if I dropped the speed to 65 mph, the engine only rev'ed to 3000 rpm, so we may have gotten better mileage on the return trip.lalo212 said:Just wonder if any of you with new '04's would post minor or any problems continuing from those posted concernig Pilot '03. Thanks.
It really doesn't make sense and my wife won't be happy knowing this. Anyway, <b>driver</b> you saved my trip to the dealer. Thanks. I should read the manual more thoroughly.driver said:Regarding the passenger seat only heating on the bottom, this is as it should be according to the manual. I thought this was a problem but then read it is done this way due to the side air bag. Makes no sense to me but there you go.
I haven't noticed mine shift - maybe the liner makes a difference.trlengle said:I only have 200 miles on my 04 but no real problems. I do have the cargo tray and it shifts to much for my liking, I wish it had a velcro type application to help keep it in place. I also might be hearing a rattle but have not investigated too much...I will soon as I HATE rattles.
