Honda Pilot 2021 is a good mid-size SUV. The crossover has a spacious cabin that can accommodate up to eight passengers and a solid cargo compartment. Pilot provides a quiet ride, even on rough roads, and its V6 engine is quite powerful but economical.

Experiencing problems with the transmission in your Pilot, such as clunky shifting or hesitation? Check the fluid level first – it is amazing how many drivers pay thousands of dollars for transmission work when a half quart of transmission fluid would have fixed the problem.

Your Honda Pilot’s automatic transmission fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles. The transmission fluid keeps the internal gears and seals inside of the transmission lubricated and cool.

The transmission fluid is pumped out of the transmission pan and circulates throughout the transmission. After about 30,000 miles, the automatic transmission fluid begins to break down and should be replaced.

Honda Pilot (Honda Pilot) – front or all-wheel drive crossover class “K3”. Official information about the upgraded version of the model’s third generation appeared on June 28, 2018. In the US the model went on sale on July 16, 2018.

The restyling of the Pilot family crossover has not become global for the model, both in terms of design changes and from a technical point of view. The exterior of the car “pulled up” to the corporate style of other models of the brand: the headlights have become, they are united by an even wider than before, the horizontal chrome bar; the front bumper has been completely redrawn, and the simulated air intake zones on the sides now accommodate DRLs and fog lights that have moved up. Changes on the “stern” – a minimum: slightly corrected the shape of the rear bumper, up from it moved the reversing lights.
