Vehicle2005 Honda Pilot EX 4WD 4dr SUV w/Leather (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewJust purchased my wife's Pilot about 5 months ago.
Ride, handling and comfort are pretty good, but Honda reliability is not there.
The radiator recently "failed" causing the coolant to be circulated into the transmission.
Radiator/thermostat need to be replaced.
The engine and transmission need to be flushed as well.
So far this has cost us $1500.
I'm just waiting for the transmission to fail requiring a $3-4K replacement all because of a defective radiator!
Would NOT buy this vehicle again.
Honda also will not admit there's a problem with their radiators on these Pilots.
This barge replaced a 1998 Odyssey which was a far better car.
