2012 Honda Pilot Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2012 Honda Pilot

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Pilot's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Honda, from the axles to the transmission. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2012 Honda Pilot to maintain its performance power. Follow Honda's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are Honda Pilot Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2012 Honda Pilot drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Honda could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Honda Pilot drives.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 2012 Honda Pilot drivetrain repair is expensive. Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
