#120 of 156 2012 honda pilot buzzing sound
Sep 13, 2012 (6:00 am)
We have a 2012 Honda Pilot EXL 4WD with about 10,500 miles on it. We brought the truck to the dealer for an oil and filter change and also told them to checkout a noise and vibration from the passanger floor. It only happens when the AC cycles on. The dealer first replaced the compressor on Tueasday then replaced the serpentine belt tensioner on Wednesday. Still no luck. they have placed a call into Honda's tech line and Honda is aware of the problem but they do not as of yet have a solution. Someone from corporate is comming next week to take a look at the truck. If you have this same noise make sure the dealer just doesn't start replacing parts at random. Honda doesn't even know how to fix it yet.

Please feel free to read my post I submitted this week. I was at the dealer and they just started to replace parts, atarting with the AC compressor and the tensioner pully. After the noise did not go away they called HONDA. Honda is aware of the problem but do not have a TSB for the issue as of yet. You and I are going to have to live with the problem until they come up with a solution. They noise in our car started at about 10,000 miles.

Just got a call from the Honda dealer today. They have been great! Honda is aware of the problem and it is only on the 2012 Pilots. R&D are working on the problem and have yet to come up with a solution. They are taking lists of customers names and once a solution ie: bracket or retrofit is made they will issue a TSB and get the trucks into service and fix the affe3cted trucks.

I am going through the same issue as we speak. I opened a case with Honda as well and they are stating it is under investigation. I heard it will be sometime before getting a fix if any.

I believed all 2012 Honda Pilot having this issues, so if you planing to buy think twice, Honda aware of the problem but let see how long until they found a solution
