The city's been behind with their snow plowing, so, the residential streets are just a big mess with inches of packed snow still on them. To make a long story short, I was slowly driving through a part of this street which was deep in snow and as I was driving through, I heard this loud grating noise underneath my Pilot as though something was scraping against the underside.

My guess is that I ended up going over a big hunk of ice/packed snow and it got caught in the underside of my car. There were two sets of noises like that. I drove through it, but I certainly felt it. There were no other noises, such as metal snapping or crunching.

The Pilot drove fine after that though all the way to my place. But I'm still rather unsettled by it. Is this something to be concerned about or it's something an SUV is supposed to be able to take? If you were me, would you bother to take it to the dealer to have them take a look under the car? Thanks.

If I were you, RipRocK, I would take the Pilot in. If not to the dealer, then to some independent service station. Or if any of your friends have a ramp or jack stands, do it yourself. It would be nagging at me if I didn't at least get it looked at -- it's probably nothing, but for my own peace of mind, ya know...??? Just my 2 cents (you can probably get some change... :) ).

I'd have it checked out. A friend of mine had something similar happen two years ago. He ignored it and two days later he was buying a new transmission. Ice can do strange things to metal - see Titanic .:D
