2008 Honda Pilot Problems

Vibration When Braking Due to Rotor Problem

The front brake rotors can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be machined or in cases where they are worn to thin, replaced to correct this issue.

Water Leak Due to Poor Seal at Side Marker Wire Harness

On certain models a leaking side marker light wire harness can cause a water leak inside the vehicle. Resealing the wire harness where it goes through the body into the cabin area should stop the leak.

Check engine due to faulty EGR valve

The exhaust gas recirculation valve (EGR valve) can fail, resulting in the illumination of the Check Engine Light.
