2010 Honda Pilot EX 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Bought a 10 Pilot in 8/09. The pull to the right was obvious from the start. The car would drive off the road in 3-4 seconds. After 5 trips to the dealer, pulling stopped. The first 5 trips incl. switch fr and rr tires, replace 1st bad tire, rear alignment, front alignment and adj'd steering wheel. None fixed the problem. On trip #5, (6 if you count the test drive with the Serv Mgr.), tires were tested for tire pull (Google Hunter gsp9700), 2nd bad tire was replaced and the pull stopped. On Edmunds, there are +15 complaints about the 09/10 Pilot pulling to the right. All complaints are for the LX/EX with Good Year Fortera H/L, Last count for Tour'g model complaints with Michelins. = zero

Favorite Features

The ride is more like a truck than earlier Pilots, but provides adequate comfort. Traction control and handling in heavy snow is great. Console storage area is convenient. Easy to fold rear seats.

Suggested Improvements

Provide better tires on EX/LX, fix the pull and improve MPG. Improve the braking system. (tow capacity?) Incl. the wiring harness in tow package and the cross bars with roof rack. Replace cloth on the doors. Improve Customer feedback. Honda Reps don't about or acknowledge the pull problem.
