|2016 HONDA PILOT ELITE REVIEWS|
2016 HONDA PILOT ELITE - In the last upgrade, we gave an arresting play-by-play of how we analyzed and affirmed a commotion issue in our Pilot's transmission, at last prompting to a full substitution unit by our nearby Honda merchant, under guarantee, at 21,428 miles. The ZF nine-speed transmission in our Pilot had been gotten out by about each staff member who examined it for its moderate movements, particular turn around rigging engagement, and general sluggish feel.

There is just such a great amount of slop in it, especially on the off chance that you push the little green catch that connects with the ECO Assist System. For the sake of efficiency, this mode adds slack to the throttle (in addition to other things), making the entire powertrain feel much more inert. A note I sent myself for this overhaul: "The previous evening, leaving work, I toed down the throttle and nothing. Continued onward. Still no development. I at long last simply tangled the throttle to the floor (for about a half-second) and lifted instantly (foot covering brake pedal). It at last staggered forward."

Perhaps it is not some designer's blame that the ZF-provided transmission is so poor. Maybe blame lies with an accountant, yet some person at Honda thought it seemed well and good, and it doesn't.
