Is anyone else having a problem with the doors leaking on the 2005 Honda Pilot.

Every time it rains we have water on the inside of the car, (around the outer part of the door as you enter the car) the dealership says this is normal.

We are very tired of our clothes getting wet when we get into the car after it rains or we have washed the car!

I asked the dealer and he said the best solution was to take a towel out and dry the areas off before entering the car. This is not a good resolution to the problem.

Has anyone had a radiator punctured by a stone or road debri?

It seems it a common problem on the 2006 Honda Pilot with it's new and redesigned larger grille opening. Then your problems really start, in finding a dealer in NJ with qualified and trained technicians that can properly repair the problem. I had to travel to Ohio to find one after two failed attempts in my home town area.

I recently had a problem with the fuel tank and cap and was told by Honda service that the problem was repaired. I seem to recall that there was a metal flap on the fuel tank, which is no longer there. Honda service tells me that 2005 models never had this metal flap on the fuel tank, can anyone confirm this?

Thank you. We have had some issues with the Pilot and I feel like I'm being told a story.

The few that have problems are the ones for the most part that visit this site and post their problems. Generally, people that are pleased with their purchase/vehicle do not take time to write a positive view.

I have been driving an '05 Honda Pilot for 10 years -- a combination of both in town and numerous Texas (heat) to Colorado (heavy snow) miles, on and off pavement miles. Other than normal maintenance it has not needed any repairs. Stays aligned and is easy on tires. It has been and continues to be an incredible car. Look at each year's reviews independently of other years and the overall numbers. There are always a few bad apples in every barrel.
