Honda Pilot 2019
Hello. I just purchased a new Honda Pilot
2019 brand new. The car makes this odd
“woop” type noise when driving. It is very
inconsistent. It seems to happen no matter if
our phones are on or off. The dealership can
not figure this out. Has anyone had anything
similar? It seems like it is coming from the
front of the car.
when ever i here a whoop sound coming from behind, it's usually the police
I have the same problem. it happens when it gets hot out. HONDA DOES NOT HAVE A FIX
I started experiencing the same noise a whoop / chirp sound after my first oil change/tire rotation about 5000 miles. I bought my 2019 Honda Pilot Elite awd Nov 2018. Spring 2019 when weather got warmer a few weeks after the service was done. I didn't hear initially because I usually have the music on loud. I took it to the dealer service dept. I complained, basically $50k 5000 miles brand new car making noises, unacceptable. I had the mechanic and service guys ride with me to hear it. They had my car all day and couldn't find the source of the noise. After a few months and another trip to the service dept about the noise, they cross rotated the tires. I didn't hear the noise again. I started hearing the noise again this Spring on a few hot 85 degree days. I did see someone posted in another honda forum it might be an issue caused by a faulty ac unit. Last two days I turned off the ac and didn't hear the noise at all. It only happens until car reaches about 50 mph. Have an appt June 15th to fix this noise. I'm not driving around with a noise and definitely not without ac!! I currently have 14k miles. I'll update after my appt. I also heard it could be from a faulty fuel pump. We will see. My brakes also are not working correctly and it makes a weird noise when I brake, not squealing, weird started at about 12,000 miles.
Took it in to the dealership last week, they kept it for 3 days and diagnosed bad ac expansion valve, they replaced. Picked up Friday. Didnt drive until Mon, the whoop sound is still there. Called dealership and scheduled a drop off appt. Dropped if Thurs now they say it is the front mount, fuel pump, going to order new one and I can get my car Saturday afternoon. I hope it is truly fixed and running 100%. Will update after Sat.
Hi Tonya. I have the same problem. I’m guessing the front mount or fuel pump was not the issue but can you update where you are with resolution?
Tonya and others, I too have a 2019 Pilot Touring making the same whoop sound you discribe. My dealer cannot find the noise either and a Honda rep actually said he did not hear it. To me, the sound sounds like it comes from the passenger rear of the vehical. There must be a way to get Honda interested in resolving this issue. It is beginning to sound like this may be a common problem. If anyone finds the fix please let us all lnow what it is. I'm with you, do not expect a vehical this expensive to have a problem like this.
