Default 2003 Pilot Transmission Failure

I have a 2003 Pilot EX-L with 86,000 miles sitting in a transmission shop
while American Honda decides if the are going to replace it or not. So I
have a few question:

1. Does the Pilot have the same tranny as the Odyssey?
2. What is the inspection process for the tranny safety recall?
3. How many miles do you have to be under for the tranny recall to matter?
4. If the tranny recall is not performed what problems will it cause?

I would great appreciate if anyone can provide any insight

Number 4. Are you saying they sent you a tranny recall but you didn't
get it done?

Automatic transmission's have always been Honda's biggest problem.

Recall reading a post by a Pilot owner who had to replace his transmission
around 100k. No reason was given. It would be interesting to know as the 03
models get up in age if the failure point is around your mileage or so. We
have 46k on ours with recall performed and no problems yet. Thinking that
trade time may be around 75-80k as transmission replacement has to be around
$4,000.

87,000 mi

I just took my 2003 Pilot in today with massive slipping problems with
the transmission. I have 62,000 miles and the recall/retrofit was
performed some time ago. The dealership has performed all prior
maintenance and has all service records to the vehicle. I will find
out tomorrow if Honda will assist in replacing my transmission. Did
you have any luck getting a replacement from Honda?

As an 03 owner, I have been looking at various pilot Web sites
(www.hondapilot.org) to get a better idea whether this another Honda
transmission problem. It seems that 03s are heading the list so far with
failures starting around 60k miles. It would be useful to get an idea of
the failure rate, but Honda probably will not release that data. It bears
watching as 03/04s get up in mileage.

Mine went bad at 83,000 miles. I took it in on Mon. got it back today
Honda took care of everything. But when my Pilot was still under
warranty they had to work on my trans twice during that time period for
a leaky trans.

That's great. I imagine, though, that it was covered because you had
problems during the warranty period. Doubt Honda would routinely replace a
transmission otherwise.
