2004 Honda Pilot EX 4WD 4dr SUV w/Leather (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

My 2004 Honda Pilot with 39,000 miles has problem with the driver's side seat heater. It gets dangerously hot to point of burning. If you to to the NHTSA incident database or to Edmunds discussion group , you will find several complaints about this same exact problem. All complaints reference a 2004 Pilot: seat gets EXTREMELY HOT on right side of driver seat. Some people have had FIRES OR SMOKE coming from seat. I contacted Honda Customer service and they refused to acknowledge any problem or to remedy the problem reported as a safety problem. Yes, it is out of warranty but a seat FIRE is a serious safety issue!

Worst Features

It appears that certain 2004 pilots have a fire safety hazard in their heated seats. Be very careful and turn off seat as soon as you feel unusual heat.
