Honda Pilot Reliability

You won't find Honda Pilot reliability information like this anywhere else. Actual repair frequencies, not just vague dots. So you can tell how much the Honda Pilot truly differs from competing car models in reliability.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to much more closely track Honda Pilot reliability as the cars age. Others tell you how reliable the Honda Pilot was a year ago, when the cars were a year younger and had 12,000 fewer miles on them. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Honda Pilot has been recently.

TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the 2015 Honda Pilot

2015 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

2015 Honda Pilot Reliability And Durability: Cons

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
