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

This noise will still bother you all winter long. Your defroster works with the AC on and not the AC off. So at start up while you are waiting for the windows to defrost the moise will still be there. It may also be magnified due to the lower outside temperature. I am still waiting for a fix for this problem as well. I do not want to go through arbitration with Honda but it may come to that.

here is a copy of the letter I faxed to Honda's executive office.
: I have recently purchased a 2012 Honda Pilot Touring, that is producing a loud humming noise and vibration when the A/C unit is running.
My case # is N012012-10-2301318
For over nine months now, based on the research I have conducted Honda has been aware of the problem of a annoyingly loud humming noise accompanied by a vibration in the gas pedal and brake pedal when running the A/C unit. I have addressed this issue with the dealership where I purchased the vehicle and was told the problem was due to the bracket holding the power steering reservoir. However, Honda has not come up with a fix for this issue. Today, I contacted your 800 # to get a case # even though my dealership has put my name on their list as well. My concern is very simple. I purchased this vehicle in good faith, that I was dealing with a leader in the automotive industry. One that would not under any circumstance allow any issue to go uncorrected, yet I cannot get anybody to even tell me if Honda is working on the problem, will fix the problem, how much longer it will take to correct the problem or will do nothing about the problem. I find the lack of information to your consumers to be of the utmost concern. If you are not aware of the problem, then you are not listening and or reading about the many complaints about this issue.
I would sincerely appreciate if somebody who is responsible for insuring that issues of this type are addressed, would contact me with an update as to how much longer I will have to deal with this issue.
