Notes: We all want our SUVs to be able to stop on a dime, just not randomly and without warning. But that's what was happening to 2005 Pilot owners: their vehicles were slamming on the brakes even when they didn't. A government investigation of this problem led to a recall in March of 2013.

Another issue that keeps popping up is transmission fluid mixing with coolant in the radiator which is causing transmission failure, a costly repair to say the least.

2005 Honda Pilot Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 082007

Pilot 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 43,303 miles


On Thursday, February 8, 2007, I was driving on I-75 at 6:20am and the right rear tire of my 2005 Honda Pilot ex-L blew. The side wall had a large hole in it. Fortunately, I did not have an accident and was able to pull to the side of the road safely. The tire had 43,303 miles on it with a substantial amount of tread left. The temperature was 4 degrees at the time and I did not run over an object. The tire dealer that I went to stated that there was a substantial amount of tread left on the other 3 tires. However, I am concerned about the same thing potentially happening to the remaining tires. The tire is a Goodyear integrity (size: P235/70R16). Has there been a recall on this tire? if so please advise as to what my options are.
