#28 of 32 09' Honda Pilot holding water in Sunroof
Jan 27, 2012 (8:04 am)
I'm Amazed that Honda will not warranty my 09' Honda Pilot's sunroof! Somehow, there is water inside of it and it makes a Swoosh sound every time I turn. Why The hell did I purchase an Extended Honda Care Package??? This is something that the consumer CANNOT control, the seals all look good but somehow, there is water in it... as a devoted household of Honda Drivers (even own a Honda Lawnmower) this is VERY Disappointing! I looked for a water bottle inside the car for months before figuring out where the noise was coming from...
The Dealer was even amazed that HONDA Care wouldn't cover it...
#31 of 32 Leaking Sunroof?
Jun 19, 2012 (3:48 am)
I have a new Pilot 2012. I had the factory sunroof deflector installed
when I purchased it.
About a week after having the car the passengers side forward pillar was wet after the first rain. Like something had leaked on it.
After a few more rains I noticed that that same area immediately got wet. When I took it to the dealer they claimed it was the sunroof drain tubes getting clogged with debris and not draining. Basically debris would get under there, when you open the roof the debris falls into the sunroof channel (because it can't blow off the roof).
They are now taking off the sunroof deflector in hopes that that fixes the issue.
Does that sound right? It still seems odd to me I mean the sunroof is completely closed when it's raining, sealed. How is all that water even entering the sunroof drain area to back up?
Any thoughts in the issue?

I could be writing this. Floor board has been soaked 2X from this issue, dealer has fixed both times but I keep asking the question of how water is getting inside and they say all sunroofs leak and need a drain. I am wondering if the deflector is aggravating the problem. It is due back today so I might take it off and see what happens. One more time and it is quits....
