Honda Pilot Headlight Problems


Introduced in 2003, the Honda Pilot is a midsized SUV available in both front-wheel and four-wheel drive. Despite the Pilot's innovative five-door design and third-row seating, it suffers from several electrical problems, including faulty headlights. Poorly operating headlights will endanger yourself and other drivers.


  • Users on the About Automobile website indicate that the 2004 Pilot's headlights burned out after only two to three months of use. Repair Pal estimates the cost to repair the Pilot's headlamp at $38 to $54 per side (as of 2011).


  • Users on reported that the various Pilot models suffer from dim lighting. Drivers indicate that the Pilot's standard headlights are weak and do not offer proper illumination of the road. You can visit your local Honda dealership and ask them to adjust the lighting projection, which may strengthen the brightness of your headlights.


  • Pilot drivers complain of headlight cut-off, which makes it difficult to see turns or curves in the road. The headlight illumination does not extend far enough to the right or left, which decreases driver safety and makes veering off the road more likely to occur. Purchasing halogen headlights may decrease the cut-off by increasing road illumination.
