2009 Honda Pilot Problems
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.
Noise and judder can develop from the rear axle due to differential fluid breakdown. Replacing the fluid will commonly correct this issue.
A chirp noise from the timing belt area can be caused by a tilted idler pulley. Installing a corrective shim from Honda will commonly correct this issue.
On some models sticking rocker pins in the valve train can cause a loud engine noise, and the Check Engine light (MIL) to come on. Replacing the rocker assemblies is required to repair this problem.

2009 Honda Pilot Reviews
This car should've come in yellow because it is the ultimate lemon. It has 150,000 miles and burns a quart of oil every 10 days, and service tells us this is "normal". Every 7,000 miles the dashboard is like an unexplained ligth show requiring to pay the fees for reset, and an explanation that they don't understand why this happens. Ultimately will never buy another honda product....
This had been a great suv. Wish got better gas mpg but ok. Tons of room. We have 65k miles on it and just done normal service. Would buy another one for sure
This car runs great I had a few problems at first to start with like electrical since the alarm wasn't installed incorrectly. The interior is fine but now that I've driven it for over 6 months and all I hear now are squeaks and vibrations from the dash board and the doors. There is a safety issue with the car since I have kids there should be some kind of blockage under the driver seat so that nothing is able to roll towards the gas and the brake. I have had a few incidents where a milk or water bottle has rolled towards my foot. Other than that I love this car its very roomy and spacious.
