#78 of 156 Fog horn like noise from 2006 Honda Pilot
Oct 30, 2009 (6:06 pm)
My 2006 Honda Pilot makes this fog horn like sound when the engine is running. Noise occurs at random and at various speed. The noise stops when the engine is turned off and does not resume. Took to the dealer who said it might be the brakes, but noise happens when car is not moving. Took to the mechanic at local gas station, he heard noise and was stumped. Brought car back, could not replicate noise. Said he looked at computer codes and service bulletins and could find nothing. I am getting concerned because noise is happening more frequently. Don't know what to do. Don't want to go back to dealer unless I can point to something specific. Help

Has the windshield on your Pilot been replaced?
RE: I hear a similar gurgling sound while driving in the rain on my 2003 Pilot after having the windshield replaced by a Honda dealership. I suspect the windshield molding was not installed correctly. The molding has undulations that appear to have been caused by heating during the installation.

Hmm, good point. I am not sure. Let me contact the previous owner and find out.
I will report back with my findings.
#81 of 156 Honda Pilot loud bang backing up
Nov 13, 2009 (2:41 pm)
My 2003 Pilot makes a very loud bang sound when I am backing up. It doesn't seem to happen backing up on flat surfaces (ie a parking lot); but if I back up my elevated driveway it happens every time.
I have taken it in to the dealer at least three times and they can always replicate the noise but have no answers. Has anyone experienced this? Any diagnostics?
#82 of 156 08 Pilot Water Gurggle by windshield
Nov 25, 2009 (7:28 am)
I have an 08 Pilot SE and every time it rains (a little or a lot) or even a car wash, the passenger side by the windshield on the bottom corner is where I hear water gurgling around when I drive. Sounds like the water is trying to move up the beam to escape. I've brought it in several times for the dealer to check and they check the drain holes and they are clear, they do not know why it is making that sound. They also have one other customer with the same issue. There are no bulletins out there as well. Any ideas on how to fix this issue??

I spoke with the previous owner, and the windshield was never replaced.

You will see in my post titled:

that I am having the same problem as you. My Honda dealer was also unable to find the source of the problem. The dealer also said they called Honda Corp and they have never heard of this issue before, therefore there is nothing else they can do.
But there is strength in numbers, so maybe if share our contact info, we could prove to Honda that this is not an isolated incident.
I will try sending you a message thru carspace.com. I think if you log into your carspace.com account and then go to the main page at: http://www.carspace.com/ you will see a TOOLBOX on your right. Inside the TOOLBOX you will see a MY CARSPACE MAILBOX, see if there is a message from me. If that does not work maybe you could just post the name and town of your Honda dealer(carspace does not allow posting phone #s) and I could call them.
#86 of 156 Humming sound
Dec 01, 2009 (7:49 am)
I have an '09 EX and was planning to take it in yesterday for it's first dealer service (indicator came on at about 5,800 miles). When I started driving to work yesterday I noticed a faint humming sound and thought how lucky it was that I was going in for service today. They checked it out and told me that my hearing was good because indeed there was a humming sound - front right wheel bearing was going bad. They replaced it and now it's good to go. I realize even Hondas can have some things go wrong early on, but I hope this isn't a sign of things to come...
#87 of 156 noisy in rain

I have noticed when driving my 2007 EXL a lot of noise on wet roads. When the car is going over 30 miles a hour, it sounds like water is being forced into the wheel well. It is quite loud. The car does have running boards. Has anyone had this experience? I took it to the dealer, and they found nothing out of place.
