Vibration' can't repair it so call it normal
By disappointed88 on


2013 Honda Pilot Touring w/Navigation and Rear Entertainment 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


i purchased a 2013 Honda Pilot in December 2012. The follolwing day i reported a vibration, which service department said was a wheel weight. After leaving the vehicle for 3 days the SD (service department) replaced a front motor mount which was to resolve the problem. No problem solved, Still vibrating. Two weeks later I returned the vehicle for 3 more days. SD replaced the rear motor mount. Still vibrates. After trying to repair the vehice 2 times with no success Honda Customer Service calls it a " Normal vibration".Now that Honda Engineering can't resolve the vibration issue the SD calls it a "Characteristic of the vehicle". The SD informed me that all the 2013 Pilot 2WD have a vibration

Suggested Improvements

The 2013 Honda Pilot 2WD should not be sold to consumers until the vibration issue is resolved.

I have recently taken the 2013 Honda Pilot to a different Honda service department. They had the vehicle for 8 days. The service department could not duplicate the vibration. I could not believe it. I will now have to drive the service man around . I think they call this "the runarround". I call it frustrated. d...88

Same here. 2012. They say they don't feel it. Stay away folks. Honda is not what they use to be. Very sad.

Amen!!! to your "Suggested Improvements" comment....I am having the same problem with my 2013 Honda Pilot EX-L. The worst thing is this problem has been happening since the 2006 model year and Honda has just kept sending them out with what I feel is an obvious engineering defect......D.F.

I just bought a 2014 Honda Pilot a week ago, and am experiencing a vibration, particularly between 75-95 mph. I thought it was an unbalanced tire, as the dealer told me, but after the dealer balanced the tire, I still feel the vibration. I regret having read these comments after making the purchase.
