2009 Honda Pilot Touring 4dr SUV w/Nav, Rear Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
From the factory the windshield wiper needed adjusting. It would bang against the frame. Center console power plug comes out. Dealer replaced, new one same problem. Internal linkage in air box prevented recirc from working. Had to replace air box. DS Door lock actuator buzzing. Remote key fobs not working. Dealer said it is a design problem and no solution at this time. Drive train good, driven 30k in first year without a problem. MPG as expected 21 on highway.
Nav and fantastic sound system. We were deciding between Highlander and Pilot. The shifter on the console frees up a lot of room for the console features. The Toyota wastes half the console space for the shift lever.
The reliability of non drive train is disappointing with my first Honda. Convert to timing chain! Improve the road noise. Very loud on a rough surfaced road. Simplify the console.
