Default 03 Pilot transmission failing

In 04, had it in for a recall for a problem with 2nd gear. Now at
54,000 miles, 2nd gear is failing and needs a new trans. Should Honda
cover this?

I am not sure of the 03, but most current Hondas have a powertrain warranty
that goes 6 years, 60,000 miles, so it MAY be covered.

Check your manual.

If it is not under warranty, call American Honda, and see what they will do,
based on service history.

I also forgot to mention: If the recall you are talking about is the same
one that covered the Accords and Odysseys, your warranty has been boosted
to 108,000 miles for the Tranny. I don't know if the Pilot was one of
them, and I am too lazy to check right now, but call your dealer, and they
will know.

I would absolutely insist on it.

What's your relationship with your dealer service department? This
would be a bad time to tell us, "Screw him and all stealerships, I never
go there, it's always a ripoff"--because a good business relationship
with the dealer, who has discretionary Honda dollars to take care of
good customers on a goodwill basis, would be a good thing to have.

We have an 03 with 57k miles. There is no extended warranty. It expires at
36k miles or 3 years whichever comes first. 54k is a little early for
transmission failure, most of the ones I have read about go at around 100k.
The best he can do is talk to his dealer and see if HOnda will at least go
50% on a new or rebuilt transmission. The transmission in the Pilot is it's
weak point.

The recall for the 2nd gear issue also included a 100K 7 mi year warranty
coverage on the tranny..

We received absolutely nothing from Honda indicating that there was a
warranty extension. I will have to write them -- I doubt the dealer will be
willing to own up.

Why?

My dealership is great about these kinds of things--but, as with
everything in life, you have to ask.

Why wouldn't your dealer want to warrant your trans? He can either get paid
by the consumer or Honda to do the trans replacement. What Honda pays is not
that much less than the consumer pays. Who cares who pays the bill when you
get paid.
Would you say the Technician, the Service Advisor, the Service Manager, the
Parts counterperson, the Parts Manager, the General Manager and the dealer
principal (owner) all have too much money to turn down such a high price job
no matter who pays?

I tend to get answers like -- "I don't know" or in this case "no it does
not," which I'll bet is the answer. In the end, I will likely have to write
to Honda for an answer. At this point, we have had no problems with our
Pilot's transmission. Heck, when I looked at the 06 I4 last year, it
seemed to me that Honda had gone to a chain vs a belt for the cams. When I
asked the service type, the answer was he did not know, but did not think
so.
