I have a 2003 Pilot EX-L with 86,000 miles sitting in a transmission shop
while American Honda decides if the are going to replace it or not. So I
have a few question:
1. Does the Pilot have the same tranny as the Odyssey?
2. What is the inspection process for the tranny safety recall?
3. How many miles do you have to be under for the tranny recall to matter?
4. If the tranny recall is not performed what problems will it cause?
I would great appreciate if anyone can provide any insight
Recall reading a post by a Pilot owner who had to replace his transmission
around 100k. No reason was given. It would be interesting to know as the 03
models get up in age if the failure point is around your mileage or so. We
have 46k on ours with recall performed and no problems yet. Thinking that
trade time may be around 75-80k as transmission replacement has to be around
I just took my 2003 Pilot in today with massive slipping problems with
the transmission. I have 62,000 miles and the recall/retrofit was
performed some time ago. The dealership has performed all prior
maintenance and has all service records to the vehicle. I will find
out tomorrow if Honda will assist in replacing my transmission. Did
you have any luck getting a replacement from Honda?
Mine went bad at 83,000 miles. I took it in on Mon. got it back today
Honda took care of everything. But when my Pilot was still under
warranty they had to work on my trans twice during that time period for
a leaky trans.
