TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the Honda Pilot

Honda Pilot Reliability And Durability: Neutral
YearComment
2016 Since it's so new, the 2016 Honda Pilot's reliability is not yet known. But the related Acura MDX has been glitchy, and car owners have been complaining about the nine-speed automatic employed in the Touring and Elite in a number of different cars. In contrast, the Toyota Highlander has a proven record, making it a safer bet. full 2016 Honda Pilot review

We had owned a Honda Accord and a Honda CRV previously, and so we expected this Pilot to be as well built and trouble free. Not so. We've had multiple problems with the HVAC system. For example, the a/c turns itself on despite manual override. The color of the bumper is aging differently (yellowing) compared to the body. Motors in the side-view mirrors have repeatedly failed. full 2012 Honda Pilot review
