Honda is well known for producing truly reliable vehicles that consistently exceed expectations. Although they put a lot of effort into the build, problems can and often do arise long after the vehicles have landed on the showroom floor. When this happens, they must send technical service bulletins and recall notices.
Have There Been Recalls for the 2010 Honda Pilot Sunroof?
As of August 2020, there have been no sunroof recalls, but complaints include:
- Electrical consumption that drains the battery
- Shattered or broken sunroof glass
- The sunroof almost opens, then reverses to close
Fortunately, in this article, we are going to look at all the details of the 2010 Honda Pilot sunroof problems. With this information, you can fix the problem and continue enjoying your car without these problems interrupting your trips.
The constant pull of the electric sliding roof
NHTSA Complaint ID: 10037017
When in good working condition, the sunroof will automatically open and close when the switch is activated. After completing your move, the system should stop drawing electricity from the battery. Unfortunately, in the 2010 pilot, this was not the case.
Even after turning off the car, it continues to consume electricity from the battery and completely drains it within two weeks of stopping driving. The sunroof’s tendency to almost open and then return to the closed position compounds problems for owners.
Although these problems were not considered serious enough to be recalled, Honda decided to fix them free of charge and sent a notice to inform owners.
When you take the vehicle in for repair, the technician will simply reprogram the sunroof control unit to stop the excessive current. This repair also prevents the sunroof from returning to the closed position while attempting to open.
Broken or shattered sunroof glass

After many customers sent in complaints about the sunroof glass cracking and even breaking, Honda decided to get to the bottom of the matter. They alerted their technicians to the problem and told them they needed to carefully inspect the glass for breaks.
If technicians find damage, they must notify headquarters so they can investigate the cause and find a solution. The inspector will then tell them how to proceed with the repairs.
