I have a 2015 Pilot and it’s giving me trouble. It’s a certified preowned it had 29k on it. Thought I’d save some money and get used. This thing vibrated like crazy after I had it a few weeks. It needed a new driveshaft. It doesn’t vibrate but sometimes when slowing down it will make a whiny hum and you can feel a slight vibration. It’s been back 3 times and of course they can never duplicate it.
Just the other day I came home parked it for 20 minutes got in it and when I put it in park the car did a strange thing, hard to describe like a little surge. My foot was on the brake. Also, sometimes it shifts hard. When I bought it they changed the trans fluid and the diffs. The power train is covered till 60k. Should I hang on or dump this thing while I can still get good money.
I traded in a 2009 with 130k on it and had no problems. My thinking was I’ll grab the 15 because the 16’s were new and all the bugs should be worked out of the old model. I really learned a lesson, because I just read that consumer reports shows this model and year in their worst of the worst list. All my fault and lesson learned.
I have my eye on a new 4 Runner. I reasearched it well went to Toyota forums and it looks reliable. Should I cut my losses on this lemon?
