I wasn't impressed with our 2018 Pilot. The 9-speed was a disaster, the entire vehicle felt cheap, the rear suspension boomed over even little road imperfections (had the limited so extra sound insulation), needed a new HVAC blower at 800 miles, leaking rear differential at 11K miles, lots of squeaks and rattles by 20k miles, paint was sub-par.Honda could care less.
This odyssey is also my last Honda. The quality of parts overall has gone downhill. Fast.
Engine mounts, alternators, brakes, vcm gaskets.
Honda is a shell of its former self living off of it previous image of quality and reliability
It's too bad.
I used a Muzzler because there were enough stories that I figured why not? Traded it in at around 30k because it really didn't seem like it was going to go the distance. I think both Toyota and Honda are still living on their reputations earned 20 years ago and while they may still be better than the rest of the disastrous manufactures out there I still don't think they're good. I don't know if there are any really good manufacturer in existence today.
