    2018 Honda Pioneer 1000-3 terrible cab heat problem

    Hello I just bought a New 2018 Honda Pioneer 1000-3 ,it has honda full windshield , honda Hard top , Honda slinging rear window and honda soft door tops. I just drove it for the first time over last weekend . The heat in the cab when going up hill in 70 degree weather was unbearable . The seat was extremely hot , heat was coming out of the dash where the gear shifter is , and heat was coming up from the back of the seat . I tried to take the doors off so it wouldn't be so hot inside the cab but the idiots from honda tightened the bolts that hold the door on so tight that 2 of the cheap bolts heads striped with a socket wrench so I couldn't get the doors off . I took it back to the Dealer that I bought it from to see what can be done. I can not drive it this way . I thought they fixed these 2018 Pioneer 1000's heat problems. They did not !!!!!! Thanks Dan Any advise would be appreciated

    Dan, Sorry to hear that!! Honda did sire vice bulletin that told us to have the dealer order and install a rubber liner under the seat to prevent the heat from coming into the cab. I had it done on my 2016 M3 and works OK. Still need to add insulation in the area between the bottom cushion and where the rear seat cushion starts. Gets to hot for my dogs. I also added a marine bulge fan below the seat in the center. It's a 4" diameter unit and I have a reversible switch so in winter I can have warm air off the engine blown into the cab. In hot weather, I can help keep the engine cool by pushing the air from the cab over the engine and force it out the rear. In really hot weather and under load, I have the engine over heat. This helps. What I also discovered is that because the tubing from the radiator to the engine makes several turns and up & downs, the factory does not always get the coolant full! I needed to raise the front end and 'burp' the system by running it until the thermostat opened and add coolant. I can't image operating with 'soft door tops' in summer! Good luck, NJ

    Dan,
    While the 18's were updated with Honda's cab heat "kit", it's better, but still not enough. Like was said above, a bilge fan, and some extra insulation are still needed. Your full windshield, back 'shield, and full doors will make the issue WAY more pronounced.

    I only have a half 'shield on mine & we notice it. The Pioneer is an awesome machine, but it does need some tweaking to be right.

    Is there enough heat in the enclosed cab, that you do not need to add a heater for winter use in northern Minnesota?
