This is a 2015 Honda Touring, we noticed a small speck on the paint in October of 2018 but soon forgot about it then in December the whole roof area above the windshield was nothing but exposed primer. We live in Southern CA. so no real harsh weather! We haven't even finished paying for it. Honda dealer directed us to a nearby paint shop where the Owner refused to paint Pearl White and offered to paint it just White for $3400.00
The dealer offered to pay for half, no way on a three year old car! we complained to Honda Corporate, no dice, not even a claim number. So we joined Facebook Honda defect paint club. Then we had signs made up and installed on our car, boy do we get the looks and thumbs up! This has to be hurting their sales. We talk to anyone that will listen and badmouth their dealership for perpetuating a problem that they have been aware off and are still selling the same car with the same color!
Just bought this used. Noticed this recently. Called American Honda and got the usual BS about it being out of warranty. Tried to get them to pay for a portion of it. No luck. WHAT HAPPENED TO HONDA?
Took it to Germain Honda in Beavercreek, OH. Quoted me $1300. Dude didn't even mention that it's a problem with Hondas. He probably sees this a lot.
All in all - between this and the VCM crap - this is my last Honda.

Paint started coming off the top in sheets in front of the sun roof. There are many others with exact same problem showing up. Some have formed groups for a class action lawsuit. Like many things, Honda does not seem to want to fix a known defect in the paint, or whatever is causing this to happen. Mostly it is the ones white in color and on other models. A 37000 dollar car 4 yrs old should not have the paint coming off. More and more are having the same problems, all you have to do is a search and many will pop up. I've owned 3 Accords, an Acura MDX and this is the second Pilot. I own a Camaro and Nissan that are older than the Pilot and the paint is not coming off those cars! One weird thing is, many of the Honda cars it starts a patch in the same spot. I have filed a complaint with Honda and took the car to the dealer. As of yet, nothing..
