Longest Road Trip Yet

We just arrived from our longest road trip yet, and I have to say it was a great one. We logged just under 2000 miles, just about 34 hours of driving time, and averaged 19.6mpg. Not too bad for having 4 adults and the rest of the car (plus the hitch carrier) full of luggage.

On this trip we hit the following states: Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina and South Carolina.

Overall I would call this road trip another success as we didn't encounter any new or old recurring issues and the Pilot is still problem free.

Problem Status Update

Please take note that I am knocking on wood as I type this........

We have had a pretty good track record lately. No new or recurring issues. It is starting to get warmer so we will keep an eye on the moonroof but so far it has been really nice to not be dealing with issues for the last few weeks.

Also, we are gearing up for yet another road trip and this is the longest one yet. Once again with 4 adults total. Hopefully the Pilot continues to be problem free.

Another Road Trip - Winter Fun

Took another short road trip to Wausau, Wisconsin this past weekend. It was great times. The Pilot handled like a dream in the snow and we were able to try cross country skiing, downhill skiing, and showshoeing for the first time. Not to mention I was able to snowboard as usual.

We fit all our equipment and luggage as well as 4 adults and we had a bit of room to spare.

Two New Issues

Well, it has been a while since we had a problem, so it is about time something else came up. Here are the two issues we are having which we are hoping to have looked at when we take the car into the dealership for an oil change tomorrow.

1. Front and Rear Sensor Button - When we first got the car a small green light stayed lit on the button/switch for the front and rear bumper sensors so that we knew when they were on just by looking at it. That light no longer works so each time we need to check if it is on or off, we have to hit the button to find out. We are able to find out because the beeping sound for on and off are different.

2. Heating Controls - All of a sudden when we switch the heat to Feet Only, the front defrosters still seemed to be turned on. We noticed this because when we have the heat on the highest fan setting the defrosters are too loud, so we normally set it to feet only. We did that yesterday and realized we could still hear and feel the heat blowing on the windshield and bouncing into our faces. Not what we expected when we turned it to Feet Only.

Wish us luck tomorrow!!!
