I got the Pilot on 1/28/05. Is a great vehicle. I paid $34,850 take home. I think I have got a great deal. One problem, I kept hitting the windshield wiper stick every time I trying to get to the column shifter.

I know what you mean, I washed the windshield once already trying to put it into drive. Funny placement of the trans stick.
I got my '05 EXL this past Tuesday. It's really my wife's. They expect 3-5 inches of snow today, so it's her first experience driving a AWD in the snow.

I'm not sure Karen can help you, but I believe I can.
This procedure is also in the owner's manual, by the way ...
while the car is off, press and hold the odometer trip reset button, then turn the key to position 2 and continue holding the button until the maintenance light goes out. That's it.

The instruction is in the owner's manual instrument panel section for 2005.
The steps are:
1. Turn off the engine.
2. Press and hold the select/reset button on the instrument panel, then turn the ignition swith to ON(II) position.
3. Hold the button for about 10 second until the indicator goes off.

I have had my Pilot EX-L for about a month. We bought it used with 19000kms on it. Yes I am from Canada. I am looking for accessories such as a roof rack system to go with the factory rails. I hope all the bugs have already been exterminated. I eagerly look forward to searching for information from you experienced pilot owners. ">

After long comparison and research and test drive, finally we bought Pilot EX-L and driving it for around a week now. Feels big and powerful. Only problem is to keep the animal within 65mph in california freeways for first 1K miles.
I am looking for some seat cover and steering wheel covers. If anyone knows any good stores (web or b&m) and can share ... that would be great ...

There are no custom made Pilot seat covers. Your options are:
1) Buy covers from any automotive store and see how well they fit on the Pilot. Trial and error.
2) Get them custom made from India. Take pictures and dimensions of your seat (height, width and seat depth).
Out of curiosity, which other vehicle was on your short list before you decided on the Pilot. What do you like about the Pilot?

How would one closed the moonroof in the event of an electrical malfunction. Is there a manual control to closed this moonroof? The owners manual does not have the answer. My dealer does not have the answer. Can anyone provide some answers.
