No, not yours. Your Pilot鈥檚.馃榿

There have been lots of posts about frame rust on Pilots that have lived in the snow belt where the salted roads take their toll on the underside. This morning I decided to start investigating the source of a small oil leak. While I was looking down there, I took some photos of the rest of the underside.

This 2005 Pilot was purchased new and has only seen snow two times. I have no idea if the roads it traveled on were salted. Other than that, this Pilot lives in a comfortable climate (lows 27F, highs 100F). Here鈥檚 what its bottom side looks like at the 16 year 121k mile mark.

What does your Pilot鈥檚 underside look like?

It's funny that I consider that to be normal, but if I lived up north, I'd be shocked if it was that clean.

The mods better keep a close eye on this thread. :D


Can't wait to see some dirty pictures of undersides pictures of dirty undersides (well, statistically a little over 50% of them, anyway). :)

That's a clean underside! I'll have to remember to take some photos of ours. It was originally a Texas vehicle until my inlaws bought it in 2014. Then it lived in Kansas City until this year when we brought it to Nebraska. Very little rust for the age, but not that clean! And don't worry about an oil leak...don't you like the self-lubricating chassis? :D

Or pour a bottle of the old Scotty juice in there and your leaks will be a bygone memory. :)
