#133 of 154 2012 pilot noises and vibrations
Oct 23, 2012 (2:13 pm)
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.

#138 of 154 Honda Pilot Sloshing Sound
Nov 10, 2012 (4:20 pm)
I have a 2009 Honda Pilot. In the past month, I notice a sloshing sound when making turns or curves. It sounds like a half-filled bottle being turned upside down. The noise sounds to me like it's coming from the interior center console area. I took the vehicle to the dealer. The mechanic also heard the noise when he drove it. He says it is not from the gas tank, but thought it sounded as if it was coming from the roof or interior passenger side second row area. He checked the A/C drains and they were clear. They seem to think the problem might be a clogged sunroof drain and want to remove the interior roof to access those drains and check.
Before I let them do that, I was hoping someone might have some thoughts or ideas as to what the casue could be. Again, I only hear this sloshing noise when I make turns and not everytime, it's only been happening the past month or so, there is no wetness or moisture anywhere on the interior of the vehicle. The only thing thats different the past month is that I've benn running the heater when needed, but i don't smell antifreeze. I feel the noise is coming from the interior center console area but the mechanic thinks its coming from above as in the roof area. Any thoughts or input would be appreciated!
#140 of 154 2013 EX-L knocking/rattle

just leased a brand new 2013 EX-L. 250 miles on it, and it makes a loud thump/knock when put into reverse to back out of drive way. Also, makes a sort of rattle sometimes when turning or when first getting onto the street from our driveway.

I've had that happen to me on my '06, but mostly after some heavy off-roading. A stone sometimes makes its way into the inside of one of the coil springs on the suspension and will get caught between the coil and pop out (causing the thump sound).
Easiest way to check this is just pull onto a flat surface and jack each spot up and remove the tire to see. If there is one in there then with the suspension expanded due to jacking you can just remove the stone.
