Our 2004 Pilot, ~120,000 miles is exhibiting the same behavior. We have occasional shuddering (like running over the small road bumps used to keep one from falling asleep and drifting off the road - this I can hear and FEEL), and occasional rattling (sounds like a loose piece of metal rapidly flapping - can only hear this one). Both of these only last for between .5 - 2 seconds when they appear (and they don't appear at the same time), but they are worrisome.
...One more to the list.

I have the same problem with the 05 Pilot we have. Have taken it to a dealer in Dallas TX last year had the fluid changed and was told it should be OK. Stared again a few months. Just got it back from the dealer here in Nashville and they said they upgraded the software - $50.00, so far the fix is working. Have been told a transmission is next - $4400.00. Not something I look forward to. This has been the only issue I have had with it. Bought it new in 04. Still not sure why they charged for a software update, even Microsoft provides free updates!

Looking at the date of this post I don't know if the following will help, but I've noticed the same in our 2005 Honda Pilot AND in our 2006 Honda Civic (Real light acceleration it shudders at a much lower speed) However I did search some other forums and found one where the person replaced the Transmission Pressure switches and seemed to correct the problem. I am looking to try this as it will be much cheaper than taking it to a dealer and pay alot of money for them to possibly not find the problem.
