2012 Honda Pilot EX-L 4dr SUV w/Nav (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Well... where do I start.
I have had a lot of issues with my 2012 Pilot... starting with the replacing the brakes, roters, tires by 12k.
Yeah you heard me correct.
I had to replace them because later found out at 18k that the front barrings were shot.
Now at 26k... I have a LOUD humming noise which absolutely drives me bonkers.
I hate driving my car... I changed my music from Coldplay to loud punk so I do not have to listen to that humming noise.
This is my 4th Honda... this one has been my problem child.

Best Features

The radio... so I do not have to hear that humming noise. Honda has not fixed this... when reading piloteers.org there have been tons of people with the same problem. Thank you Honda for a great radio.

Worst Features

Fix the humming noise.... I am sick of it.

How does one buy something else when they've already committed to a car and the issues start showing up at 12,000??? Obviously this vehicle didn't have these issues on a test drive or I suspect they never would have bought it. It's hard to get rid of something when it's depreciated driving it off the lot!
