I have a 2004 EX-L and have the same problem. In my case the seat cushion drops to the lowest position, but does not do it consistently. On short stops the seat retains the position. On an overnight park, it almost always loses the memory. I had no problems with this when I first got the Pilot, like yours it started about a year later. I also have tried to research this and never got anywhere. You are the first person that I have encountered with this same problem.
In my case, this is a leased vehicle that I will be turning in soon, so I am not even thinking about it anymore. It is strange though!

Wow, Same exact problem but Pilot is an '08. Dealer has never heard of it. What do you think is our recourse? Lemon? New motor doesn't seem like an option. Help?

They replaced the motor in my vehicle. It has not solved the problem. There is no rhyme or reason to the seat moving back to the floor. Sometimes it drops back during a ten minute trip to the market, but almost always overnite. Honda gave me a response that the seat drops back down to make it easy to get in and out of the vehicle. That is ridiculous. The seat should be able to be put in your "comfort" positoin and stay there. I can't believe any engineer would design it otherwise. I have gotten no where in calling Honda. I have asked to speak with an engineer but that doesn't happen, I think I will probably write a letter and see how they respond to that. At least it's not just an isolated incident with my vehicle. Good Luck.
