Hich

Asked by Jun 06, 2009 at 11:48 PM about the 2007 Honda Pilot 4 Dr EX-L 4X4

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I am purchasing a 2007 pilot and wanted to know if I should go with the Honda hitch and all the add-ons or buy a after
market hitch for 200 or so.  The Honda hitch with the transmission cooler, power steering cooler, wiring harness, labor
and tax.  Will cost around 1200 bucks.  quite a bit to spend on a hitch.  I will be towing a 3000lbs boat with the car is
why I need the hitch.

Thanks

I bought my 2003 Pilot new and had the dealer add on the hitch which included all the goodies (the transmission cooler, wiring harness, labor , etc.). I was not sure what I would be towing and I really haven't used it for much other than putting a bike rack on every weekend or so. I have also rented some trailers for hauling small loads less than 2000. I probably wasted my money. However, in your case where you know you will be towing a 3000 lb boat, I would spend the 1200. That is cheap insurance that you won't damage your transmission, etc. Good luck, Bob
