#917 of 1127 2009 Pilot Accessory Upgrades
Nov 19, 2008 (11:35 am)
I have been driving my 2009 EXL Pilot for about a week now and I love it. It is lot better than the 2006 SR5 4runner I have been driving for the past 3 years. Anyways I wanted to see if anyone had any information about some topics I want to discuss.
1) I just bought a cargo cover for my Pilot and noticed it does not fit properly. Basically the 3rd rolw seat belts get in the way and have to be moved out of the way inorder for the cargo cover to be pulled all the way over. Does anyone have a quick fix for this? Is there a latch for the seat belts where I can fasten them out of the way?
2) I am thinking about adding the 2nd row sun shades. They are about $135 each side. The parts guy at the Honda store said that I did not have to remove the door panel in order to install the shade, but after looking at a Touring model, it seems like I do have to remove the panel in order to get the shade in. Anyone have any recommendations or thoughts?
#918 of 1127 Opening Liftgate
Nov 25, 2008 (1:05 pm)
I am having a hard time opening the liftgate for a 2009 Pilot EX 4wd. After I clicked twice on the remote control. I pressed and hold the handle but it will not open, it will just open about an inch and still latched and then if I pushed it all the way in to close it, it will locked.

Sometimes my remote needs me to click 3 times before all doors unlocked.

Need a new battery in the fob? Maybe find and clean the electrical contacts on the hatch.
Try pointing the business end of the fob at your chin instead of at the car and see if that helps. (no, I'm serious ).

Even without using the remote fob and opening all doors including the liftgate using the driver's side unlocking button on the door, it still would not open.
I tried unlocking all doors from the remote this morning, anf if I pressed the liftgate handle twice, it opened.

Sample I saw the leather was dark blue or navy, how does it look in person? LIke it over the gray?

The dealer replaced the liftgate switch, did not fix the problem. They said they have to contact Honda of America in Calif for assistance.
#924 of 1127 Cons and Pros leasing a car with local/remote dealer
Dec 18, 2008 (11:56 am)
i am considering leasing Pilot 09 EXL 4wd in the next week or so. Got couple of good quotes from New Jersey and Massachusetts that can be followed through (I live in NY, queens). I understand one can service a car in any Honda service station, but what are the cons and pros leasing a car from a remote dealer and saving maybe $20 to $30 in your monthly payment vs getting it near your home?
#925 of 1127 2009 Pilot Chrome Side Steps vs Running Boards
Dec 18, 2008 (6:00 pm)
Does anyone presently own an 09 w/either of these accessories. Do you favor one over the other, or is it just the look that you prefer. I cannot decide! Thanks
I would love to see a pic of an 09 with chrome side steps to make my final decision.
