Summary

I recently bought this car used and the car and the airbag icon was on and the dealer from where I bought the car. He said that it was a honda air bag recall passenger side and I went to Honda to go and get it replaced and once they fixed it the airbag icon was still on. The car has never been in an accident and the driver side is the issue. I went to the dealership where I bought the car and they gave me a code that they read from the diagnostic test and it read 31-11. The car has never been in a car accident and the driver side is the issue. They said that when Honda made the car they didn't do it right so they should fix it. I need help!

Summary

WE WERE TOLD BY SEVERAL SERVICE TECHNICIANS AT THE WOLFCHASE HONDA IN BARTLETT, TN THAT THERE WAS A RECALL ON ALL 2010 HONDA PILOTS, (OURS IS A TOURING FWD), DUE TO A MISS-FIRING ISSUE. WE PURCHASED OUR PILOT 9/2015 AND REPEATEDLY REPORTED THAT THE CAR WAS MISS-FIRING, WHICH CAUSED THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT TO APPEAR. WHEN WE TOOK IT IN FOR OIL CHANGES, THE TECHS WOULD TELL US TO DO A GAS TREATMENT, SUCH AS LUCAS (THEY DID IT ONCE THEMSELVES), OR TO CHANGE THE AIR AND CABIN FILTERS. WE DID THAT, AND THE PROBLEM PERSISTED. UPON EACH OIL CHANGE, THE DEALERSHIP WOULD JUST RESET THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT AND TELL US NOTHING ELSE WAS WRONG. WE HAVE SINCE CHECKED FOR COMPLAINTS ON THE WEB, AND SAW THAT NUMEROUS CONSUMERS HAVE THE SAME ISSUE & A LAW SUIT SETTLEMENT . WE HAVE CONTACTED AMERICAN HONDA, AND NOW THAT THE RECALL IS OUT OF THEIR TIMEFRAME FOR REPAIRS, (ENDED 10/2017) THEY REFUSE TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. WE HAVE COMPLAINED ABOUT THE PROBLEM EVEN BEFORE THE RECALL PERIOD ENDED, BUT ALL THEY DID WAS A "QUICK FIX" OF CHANGING THE SPARK PLUGS TO "APPEAR" TO CORRECT THE ISSUE. THERE HAVE BEEN UNEXPECTED "SURGES" OF THE ENGINE WHILE IN MOTION ON A CITY STREET, WHICH ALMOST CAUSED AN ACCIDENT THAT COULD'VE INJURED OR KILLED OUR FAMILY, WHICH INCLUDES 2 ELEMENTARY AGED CHILDREN. THEY NEVER DID THE SECOND STEP OF REPLACING THE PISTON RINGS IF THE PROBLEM PERSISTED, BECAUSE OF THE RECALL DATE. THIS WAS BY DESIGN SO THE BUYER WOULD HAVE TO EAT THE COST ($2448 + TAX). AMERICAN HONDA AND WOLFCHASE HONDA (DEALERSHIP), KNEW ABOUT THE RECALL ON THIS MODEL OF PILOT, EVEN AT PURCHASE TIME, BUT DID NOT TELL US, NOR DID AMERICAN HONDA EVER SEND A RECALL NOTICE FOR IT. ALTHOUGH THEY DID SEND ONE FOR THE TAKATA AIRBAGS THAT WAS ALL OVER THE NEWS. SINCE APPARENTLY, THE MEDIA HASN'T HEARD OF THIS PROBLEM, HONDA DECIDED TO JUST IGNORE IT AND DENY ANY CLAIMS HONDA CONSUMERS HAVE.

THE VEHICLE WILL RANDOMLY START VIBRATING IN THE FRONT DASHBOARD. NOT SURE IF IT IS TRANSMISSION, ENGINE OR SUSPENSION OR ALIGNMENT RELATED. DRIVING OVER 45 MPH THE ENTIRE FRONT DASHBOARD AND STEERING WHEEL WILL BEGIN TO VIBRATE. IT WILL LAST FOR ABOUT 10 SECONDS AND THEN STOP. IT DOES A LOT GOING UPHILL. EVEN ON FLAT LAND IT WILL JUST RANDOMLY START VIOLENTLY VIBRATING. I JUST PURCHASED THIS USED VEHICLE ON APRIL 19 OF 2018. I AM STARTING TO REGRET IT. I HAVE READ MANY REPORTS OF THE HONDA PILOTS VIBRATION ISSUES. I HAVE READ THAT IT IS MAINLY DUE TO THE VCM.

EXCESSIVE OIL BURNING ISSUE. BETWEEN STANDARD OIL CHANGE MILEAGE DISTANCE, THE ENGINE CAN BURN SO MUCH OIL THAT IT NO LONGER REGISTERS ON THE DIPSTICK SETTING A FAULTY POSITIVE FOR A BAD ROCKER ARM OIL PRESSURE SWITCH. OBVIOUSLY IF THE ENGINE GET SO LOW ON OIL IT CAN BE CATASTROPHIC AND IF THAT HAPPENS AT SPEED THEN IT COULD BE DEADLY. I'VE CAUGHT IT EARLY ENOUGH THAT SO FAR IT HASN'T CAUSED CATASTROPHIC FAILURE BUT I'M TOLD BY MY DEALERSHIP AND HONDA THAT THERE IS NOTHING TO BE DONE AND TO JUST LET IT BREAK.

Summary

2010 HONDA PILOT, I HAVE HAD IT SINCE BRAND NEW. THIS IS THE 4TH OR 5TH WINTER I HAVE NO BRAKES WHEN THE TEMPS ARE BELOW FREEZING. THE PEDAL IS BASICALLY FROZEN IN PLACE. I HAVE TO CONTINUALLY PRESS ON IT UNTIL IT LOOSENS AS I PRESS DOWN ON THE PEDAL. I HAVE HAD IT TO ALLSTAR HONDA, TOLD THEM PARK IT OUTSIDE LIKE I HAVE TO, HOP IN & DRIVE ON A DAY IN THE TEEN TEMPS. THEY TOLD ME THEY CAN'T RECREATE THE PROBLEM WHICH MEANS THEY DIDNT DRIVE IT OR THEY ARE LYING AS THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO FIX IT. THEY WOULD NOT CHANGE MY SPARK PLUGS WITH RECALL BECAUSE NO ERROR CODE SHOWED ALTHOUGH I HAD SLUGGISH ACCELERATION ESPECIALLY ON THE FREEWAY. I HAD A MECHANIC CHANGE MY PLUGS (AT MY EXPENSE) & NO LONGER HAD TROUBLE WITH ACCELERATION. BUT HONDA WOULDNT DO IT BECAUSE NO ERROR CODE, THE RECALL WAS BASICALLY AN EXTENDED WARRANTY. THEY CLAIM THEY CANT FIND TROUBLE IN MY ELECTRICAL FOR THE RADIO AS MY RADIO FREEZES UP INTERMITTENTLY FOR ANYWHERE FROM HOURS TO WEEKS. I AM UNABLE TO CHANGE RADIO STATIONS, TURN ON OR OFF, OR MAKE ANY CHANGES OTHER THAN VOLUME. AS OF SATURDAY, I BEGAN EXPERIENCING NO BRAKES WHILE DRIVING. I WARMED MY CAR, PRESSED THE BRAKE PEDAL REPEATEDLY UNTIL MY BRAKES WORKED,DROVE ROUGHLY TWO MILES STOPPING AT TRAFFIC LIGHTS TWICE & THEN WHEN I TRIED TO STEP ON THE BRAKE, THE PEDAL WOULDNT BUDGE, I HAD NO BRAKES. MY PRIOR COMPLAINT TO HONDA WAS REFERRING ME TO THE SAME DEALER THEN NOT RETURNING OF MY CALLS. MY BRAKES ARE WORSENING. I CANT AFFORD A NEW CAR OR I WOULD HAVE GOTTEN RID OF THIS 3-4 WINTERS AGO TO AVOID THIS MAJOR SAFETY ISSUE. THIS IS A RISK TO ME, MY CHILDREN AND MY FATHER WHO I DRIVE ALL OVER. THERE ARE SEVERAL SITES ON THE WEB WHERE PEOPLE CHAT ABOUT THE SAME PROBLEM IN THE MW AND EVEN IN CANADA. THEY HAVE BLED THE SYSTEM AND HAVE NO CURE. I WANT WORKING BRAKES 100% OF THE TIME.

HONDA IS FULLY AWARE OF THEIR FAULTY SUSPENSION COMPLIANCE BUSHINGS. FROM NEW CARS TO OLDER CARS THEY ARE CRACKING AND LEAKING FLUID. THIS CARS WAS JUST SOLD TO ME IN FEB OF THIS YEAR AND FROM HONDA DEALERSHIP. THIS CAR CONTAINS MY KIDS MOST OF THE TIME IT CONCERNS ME THAT HONDA IS NOT REPLACING THEM WITH A DIFFERENT PRODUCT THEN THE SAME FAULTY ONES. ITS NOT UNCOMMON FOR THE CONTROL ARM BUSHINGS ON MANY HONDAS/ ACURAS TO EXPIRE QUICKLY. IT IS HOWEVER A BIT DANGEROUS TO DRIVE WITH THEM IF THEY ARE STARTING TO WEAR DOWN OR DRY ROT. THEY HARDEN WHEN THIS HAPPENS AND CAUSE OTHER COMPONENTS ON YOUR SUSPENSION AND SUB-FRAME TO FAIL. THE LATERAL AND VERTICAL SHAKING OF YOUR CAR WILL CAUSE SOMETHING TO GIVE EVENTUALLY. IT'S NOT SOMETHING THAT IS PUTTING MANY CHILDREN WHO RIDE INTHEM AT RISK!

AT 7:15AM IN A PUBLIC PARKING LOT OF A STRIP MALL SETUP, I APPROACHED A PARKING PLACE BUT FIRST LETTING AN EMPLOYEE OF PANERA BREAD CROSS IN FRONT OF ME BEFORE I APPROACHED THE SPACE. UPON APPROACHING I WAS GLIDING IN USING THE BRAKE TO SLOW ME WHEN ALL AT ONCE THE ENGINE REVED WHILE MY FOOT WAS ON THE BRAKE ACCELERATING ME AND THE VEHICHLE INTO A TREE 8 FEET PAST THE PARKING SPACE, DEPLOYING THE AIR BAG AND BOUNCING ME BACK AROUND 16 FEET. THE VEHICHLE HAD AT LEAST ACCELERATED TO 20MPH TO ACCOMPLISH WHAT HAD HAPPEND. MY HUSBAND HAD TOLD ME AS WELL AS THE OFFICER AT THE SCENE, THAT THIS HAD HAPPENED TO HIM 3 TIMES IN THE RECENT PAST ON A GRADUATED INTENSITY. I SUFFERED HAND LACERATIONS AS WELL AS FOREHEAD WITH CHEST BRUISING FROM THE SEAT BELT AND A HAND BURN FROM THE DEPLOYED AIR BAG. I ALSO HAD A SLIGHTLY BLEEDING LIP AND WAS RELEASED AT THE SCENE FROM THE AMBULANCE WITH A STRONG SUGGESTION TO FOLLOW UP IF NECESSARY. IT IS A SHAME THAT YOUR OWN INSURANCE COMPANY WOULD RATHER LOOK THE OTHER WAY THEN GET INVOLVED AND ATTORNEYS ONLY WANT "SEVERE" HOSPITAL RIDDEN PATIENTS TO MOVE FORWARD ON A CASE. MY INSURANCE COMPANY WANTS TO FIX THE HONDA PILOT AND PUT ME BACK BEHIND THE WHEEL. I HAD SPOKEN WITH ONE INDIVIDUAL WHO WORKS ON HONDA'S AT A HONDA GARAGE AND ISN'T IT INTERESTING HE SUGGEST IT MAY BE A SENSOR OR ELECTRICAL ISSUE WITH THE ACCELERATION SYSTEM......BUT ODDLY ENOUGH, HE HASN'T HEARD OF THIS EITHER, BUT UPON RESEARCH, I'VE FOUND IT ALL OVER THE INTERNET. I TOLD MY INSURANCE COMPANY, "SHOULDN'T WE START SOMEWHERE."

FRONT BUSHINGS NEED REPLACED AT 76,000 MILES AND DEALER SAID THAT THERE WAS A LEAK IN THE HYDROLICS CONTROLING THE TIMING BELT WHICH WILL LEAD TO POSSIBLE ENGING REPLACEMENT. DEALER QUOTED $2500 TO FIX. THE INFORMATION ON THE BUSHINGS AND TIMING BELT WAS DISCOVERED WHILE HAVE THE AIR BAG REPLACED. ALSO, THERE WAS ANOTHER CUSTOMER THAT GOT THE SAME NEWS ON HIS CAR. AFTER LOOKING AT THE COMPLAINTS THESE ARE COMMON PROBLEMS WHICH HONDA DOES NOT HELP WITH AND YOU DON'T KNOW IF THE SAME PROBLEM WILL REOCCUR IF YOU DO FIX. IT DOES APPEAR TO BE A MANUFACTURING/ENGINEERING PROBLEM THAT HONDA KNOWS WELL BUT THERE IS NO HELP FOR THE CUSTOMER. THE DEALERSHIP SEEMS TO BE LOOKING FOR THESE KNOWN PROBLEMS FOR MORE PROFIT POTIENTAL. THIS VEHICLE HAS BEEN WELL SERVICED AND USED FOR MOSTLY LONG ROAD TRIPS. HONDA NEEDS TO FESS UP AND HELP THEIR CUSTOMERS SINCE THESE TYPE OF PROBLEMS/FAILURES CAN BE VERY DANGERIOUS TO THE PASSANGERS WHILE DRIVING NOT TO MENTION EXORBITANT COSTS.

Summary

TAKATA RECALL HONDA INFORMED US IN JULY THAT OUR PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAG IS DEFECTED AND WHEN WE CALLED TO GET IT REPAIRED WE WERE INFORMED THEY WERE ON BACK ORDER AND WOULD CALL US WHEN THEY COME IN. AS OF AUGUST 31ST, WE STILL HAVE NOT HEARD FROM HONDA. WE HAVE BEEN HAVING TO DRIVE 2 CARS AROUND WHILE WE ARE IN TOWN AS WE CAN'T GET OUR WHOLE FAMILY TO FIT GIVEN THERE ARE 2 KIDS IN CAR SEATS STILL. WE ONLY REQUESTED ALTERNATE TRANSPORTATION FOR OUR ROAD TRIP LABOR DAY WEEKEND AS IT'S A FAMILY TRIP AND WE CAN'T USE THE 3RD ROW SEAT OF OUR PILOT GIVEN WE HAVE TO PUT OUR SUIT CASES IN THE BACK. LISA (PHONE NUMBER 909-664-9269) FROM AMERICAN HONDA CLAIM REP WAS EXTREMELY RUDE TWISTING MY WORDS AROUND AND MAKING THE SITUATION COMPLETELY WORSE WHEN IT DID NOT HAVE TO BE. SHE SAID THAT HONDA WILL NOT PROVIDE US ALTERNATE TRANSPORTATION AND THEREFORE WE WILL HAVE TO USE ALL THE SEATS IN OUR CAR WHICH IS UNSAFE IN ORDER TO FIT OUR 2 SUITCASES AND OUR FAMILY. I WILL SAY THAT THE HONDA AUTOMOBILE CUSTOMER SERVICE REPS THAT ANSWERED THE INITIAL CALL WERE EXTREMELY NICE AND HELPFUL (I ONLY GOT ONE NAME AND THAT WAS VIRGINA). HOWEVER ONCE OUR CLAIM GOT MOVED UP TO THE CLAIM REPS IS WHEN I DIDN'T RECEIVE ANY RESPECT OR UNDERSTANDING OF OUR SITUATION AND FORCING US TO BE IN AN UNSAFE SITUATION.

Summary

TAKATA AIRBAG. HONDA SENT ME A LETTER STATING I SHOULD NOT ALLOW A PASSENGER IN THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT, BUT THIS IS THE EXACT REASON I BOUGHT A PILOT. IT IS LARGE, AND SAFE AS I TAKE MY 82 YEAR OLD MOTHER EVERYWHERE, AND I WANTED HER SAFE. NOW, I AM SUPPOSED TO PUT HER IN THE BACK SEAT WITH MY BOYFRIEND'S GRANDKIDS, AND SHE WILL HAVE NO AIRBAG IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG? I WAS TOLD BY MY DEALER THAT HONDA HAD A MILLION DOLLARS FOR RENTALS, AND NOW THAT IS EXHAUSTED. HOW IS THAT MY ISSUE? I PAID FOR A SAFE CAR TO DRIVE MY MOM AROUND, AND NOW I HAVE NONE! I NEED A RENTAL CAR UNTIL THIS ISSUE CAN BE FIXED. HOW ARE TAKATA AIRBAGS STILL BEING PUT INTO NEW VEHICLES? I NEED HONDA TO RESPOND. TO DATE, MY 3 CALLS TO THEIR TALKING HEADS AT 888 234 2138 HAVE NOT BEEN ANSWERED. I WANT A GUARANTEE THAT MY DRIVER AIRBAG IS SAFE, AND I WANT TO KNOW IF THE PASSENGER AIRBAG GOES OFF WITH NO ONE IN THE PASSENGER SEAT, AM I GUARANTEED NONE OF THE DEBRIS WILL HIT ME? I KNOW AIRBAGS ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO GO OFF IF NO ONE IS SITTING THERE, BUT THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO KILL PEOPLE WITH SHRAPNEL EITHER. PLEASE HELP

I BROUGHT THE VEHICLE TO HONDA CITY, LIVERPOOL, NY BECAUSE OF AN ISSUE WITH COMPLIANCE BUSHING IDENTIFIED BY AN INDEPENDANT MECHANIC. THE MECHANIC AND SERVICE ADVISOR BOTH AGREED THAT THE BUSHING HAS SIGNS OF PREVIOUS LEAK AND IS VISUALLY DAMAGED WHICH CAN BE SEEN BY CRACKED RUBBER. THEY ALSO TOLD ME THAT SINCE THE TSB SAYS IT HAS TO BE A VISUAL LEAK OR POPPING IT DOESNT QUALIFY FOR REPLACEMENT. THEREFORE I CURRENTLY AND DRIVE A VEHICLE WITH A DEFECTIVE SUSPENSION BUSHING WHICH THE MANUFACTURER KNOWS ABOUT BUT BECAUSE OF THE WORDING OF THE TSB THEY WILL NOT REPLACE. I AM NOT SURE HOW THIS WORKS OR WHAT CAN BE DONE BUT I'M TRYING TO FIGURE OUT IF I HAVE TO BE INVOLVED IN A ACCIDENT RESULTING FROM THE FAILURE OF THIS COMPONENT BEFORE MY CONCERN WILL BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY BY THE DEALER AND MANUFACTURER. *JS

Summary

DRIVING ALONG AT NORMAL HIGHWAY SPEEDS AND THE EMISSION MANAGEMENT INDICATOR LIGHT STARTED BLINKING. TOOK VEHICLE TO HONDA DEALERSHIP FOR INSPECTION AND FOUND OUT THAT THERE WAS A SOFTWARE UPDATE NEEDED FOR THE FUEL MANAGEMENT CONTROL SYSTEMS AS HONDA WAS GETTING MULTIPLE COMPLAINTS OF EARLY SPARK PLUG FOULING DUE TO INCORRECT MANAGEMENT OF THE ECO DRIVE STATE. WE FOUND OUT THAT WE HAD LOST 4 OUT OF 6 CYLINDERS DUE TO THE SPARK PLUGS BEING FOULED. THIS COULD HAVE BEEN A SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE AND COULD HAVE CAUSED A MAJOR ACCIDENT ON A INTERSTATE HIGHWAY HAD ALL THE CYLINDERS BEEN LOST AT ONE TIME. WAS TRAVELING WITH WIFE AND 2 KIDS AT TIME OF INCIDENT. TO ME THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL FOR 2010 HONDA PILOTS AS THIS IS A KNOWN PROBLEM THROUGH HONDA. THE SOFTWARE UPDATE WAS STILL COVERED UNDER WARRANTY BUT THE REPLACEMENT OF THE PLUGS WAS NOT AS THEY ARE CONSIDERED A NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR ITEM EVEN THOUGH THEY LASTED FOR LESS THAN HALF OF THE EXPECTED LIFE OF A SPARK PLUG. *TR

NOTICED THAT MY PILOT WAS VIBRATING AFTER TAKING IT IN FOR A ROUTINE OIL CHANGE AT SPEEDS FROM 45-60MPH. TOOK BACK IN AND THEY EXPLAINED NEW TIRES, ALIGNMENT AND BALANCE WOULD FIX. AFTER SPENDING 280$ ON BRAKES 218$ ON BALANCING AND ALIGNMENT AND 700$ ON NEW TIRES STILL HAVE A VIBRATION. DIDN'T NOTICE IT TO BE AS MUCH BUT THERE STILL IS A VIBRATION. I PLAN TO TAKE IT IN AGAIN BUT REFUSE TO SPEND ANYMORE MONEY FOR THEY TO TRY AND FIGURE OUT WHAT'S WRONG WITH IT. THIS IS ONLY A 2010 WITH 38,000 MILES . AFTER LOOKING ONLINE I HAVE SEEN OTHER COMPLAINTS THAT ARE VERY SIMILAR. I WANT TO GO ON A FAMILY TRIP THIS SUMMER BUT FEEL I CAN'T TAKE IT ON A LONG TRIP!!! HAVE SEEN THAT IT COULD BE A TRANSMISSION PROBLEM SO DON'T WANT TO MAKE MATTER WORSE. HONDA NEEDS TO RECALL!!! *TR

SIGNIFICANT STEERING WHEEL VIBRATION WHEN APPLYING THE BRAKES WHILE GOING DOWNHILL ON HIGHWAY 160 IN COLORADO. TOOK THE VEHICLE TO HONDA DEALER WHO REPLACED LEFT FRONT BRAKE ROTOR AND RE-SURFACED RIGHT FRONT BRAKE ROTOR. APPROXIMATELY ONE YEAR LATER ON 6/14/2013, I EXPERIENCED THE SAME PROBLEM AGAIN; THE CAR HAD APPROXIMATELY 33,000 MILES AT THIS TIME. THE HONDA DEALER RECOMMENDED ANOTHER FRONT ROTOR RESURFACE, BUT HE WANTED TO CHARGE ME FOR IT. CLEARLY THIS VEHICLE HAS A BRAKE ISSUE; I'VE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM LIKE THIS WITH ANY OTHER VEHICLE. FRONT BRAKE ROTORS SHOULD NOT REQUIRE RESURFACING OR REPLACEMENT EVERY 10,000 MILES. *TR

CRUISING ON THE HIGHWAY THE "CHECK ENGINE" LIGHT CAME ON AND CAR STARTED PUTTING AND DECELERATING (LOSS OF POWER). PRESSING ON THE GAS PADDLE COULD HARDLY SUSTAIN SPEED. DROVE TO DEALERSHIP AND IT WAS DETERMINED THAT IT WAS A FAULTY SPARK PLUG. THE SAME HAS HAPPENED BEFORE WITH ANOTHER SPARK PLUG (THAT TIME UNDER WARRANTY) . ACCORDING TO HONDA DEALER SPARK PLUGS ARE REPLACED AT 100,000 MILES AND THIS VEHICLE HAS 40,000 MILES. SINCE IT HAPPENED TWICE ALREADY MOST LIKELY IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN AND IT IS A DEFECTIVE SERIES OF SPARK PLUGS. HONDA US DECLINED TO ASSIST STATING THAT IT IS OUT OF WARRANTY (EVEN THOUGH THE DEALERSHIP DID INCLUDE IT UNDER WARRANTY UNDERSTANDING THAT THIS IS UN-ACCEPTABLE). THIS SEEMS TO BE A PREVALENT PROBLEM IN HONDA PILOT (SEE OTHER COMPLAINTS ON THE INTERNET). CAN YOU HELP? I WOULD LIKE HONDA TO REPLACE ALL SPARK PLUGS. *TR

Summary

SINCE THE DAY WE BOUGHT THE CAR THE DOOR LOCKS (ESPECIALLY THE DRIVER SIDE) SQUEAL UPON LOCKING AND UNLOCKING. UPON REGULAR MAINTENANCE WE BROUGHT TO THE ATTENTION OF SERVICE AND THE DOOR LOCKS WERE REPLACED. THE PROBLEM CONTINUED. ISSUE WAS MENTIONED AGAIN TO SERVICE AND WE WERE UNDER THE IMPRESSION THE DOOR LOCKS WERE REPLACED AGAIN (HOWEVER, THEY WERE NOT - PARTS WERE ORDERED, BUT NOT INSTALLED). THE ISSUE HAS NOW MOVED BEYOND SQUEALING AS THE DRIVER DOOR OCCASIONALLY FAILS TO UNLOCK UPON TURNING OFF IGNITION. (THE DRIVER DOOR IS SUPPOSED TO UNLOCK AUTOMATICALLY, BUT NOW FAILS). WE FEEL THIS HAS CHANGED FROM BEING SIMPLY ANNOYING TO A SAFETY ISSUE. IF THERE WERE AN ACCIDENT THE DRIVER DOOR MAY FAIL TO UNLOCK AND THE DRIVER COULD POSSIBLY BE TRAPPED. HOWEVER, BECAUSE WE ARE 3,000 MILES PAST OUR WARRANTY HONDA WILL NOT REPLACE DOOR LOCKS AGAIN (EVEN THOUGH THIS HAS BEEN AN ONGOING ISSUE SINCE DAY OF PURCHASE). THEY HAVE OFFERED TO PAY FOR HALF HOWEVER, WE WERE TOLD IT WOULD NOT FIX THE PROBLEM AS HONDA HAS NOT CHANGED THE DOOR LOCK MECHANISM AND FIX WOULD MOST LIKELY BE TEMPORARY. WE WERE ALSO INFORMED THAT THIS IS A VERY COMMON PROBLEM. SEEING HOW IT IS COMMON A POSSIBLY A SAFETY ISSUE, WE BELIEVE HONDA SHOULD NOT ONLY REPLACE THE DEFECTIVE PARTS, BUT SHOULD REDESIGN THE LOCKING MECHANISM SO THE ISSUE WILL BE SOLVED. *TR

Summary

2010 HONDA PILOT TOURING HIT A BUMP IN THE ROAD AND THE ABS AND VSA SENSOR WIRES WERE SEVERED CAUSING BOTH FEATURES TO BE DISABLED. THE SENSOR WIRE GOES FROM THE MIDDLE OF THE UNDERCARRIAGE TO EACH REAR WHEEL AND IS TOTALLY UNPROTECTED. ALSO, THE SENSOR AND WIRE ARE ONE PIECE AND SHOULD HAVE A CONNECTOR RATHER THAN ONE PIECE SO IT COULD BE REPAIRED. ADDITIONALLY, THE WIRE SHOULD BE ENCASED IN A WIRE CONDUIT (THE FLEXIBLE WIRE CONDUIT THAT COULD BE PURCHASED FROM A PARTS STORE.) THIS WOULD ADD SOME LEVEL OF PROTECTION. AND A MERE TREE BRANCH IN THE ROAD CAN SEVER THE CABLES. THE MANUAL SUGGESTS THAT THE ILLUMINATED WARNING LIGHTS, IF IGNORED, CAN CAUSE INJURY OR DEATH. I WAS IN A LONG TUNNEL AND COULD NOT EVEN PULL OVER. AFTER RESEARCHING ON LINE, THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THIS FLAW. THE DEALERSHIP CLAIMS THE VEHICLE CAN STILL BE DRIVEN WITHOUT THESE TWO FEATURES FUNCTIONING. I FEEL THIS IS DANGEROUS. *TR

Summary

I PURCHASED A NEW 2010 HONDA PILOT EX IN 3/13/2010. IN THE EVENING OF 4/16/2010, MY WIFE DROVE IT TO PICK UP MY DAUGHTER AND MY NEIGHBOR'S DAUGHTER FROM GYM CLASS. WHEN THE CAR APPROACHING THE GIRL'S HOUSE IN A CUL-DE-SAC AND MY WIFE REDUCED THE SPEED BY APPLYING THE BRAKE ENTERING THE CUL-DE-SAC. WHEN SHE TRIED TO MAKE FULL STOP IN FRONT OF THE HOUSE, SHE SUDDENLY FELT THE BRAKE WAS VERY SOFT AND UNRESPONSIVE AND IT WOULD NOT STOP NO MATTER HOW HARD SHE PRESSED THE BRAKE. THE CAR CONTINUED TO MOVE FORWARD AND ENDED UP HITTING A PARKED MAZDA PROTG IN THE NEIGHBOR'S DRIVEWAY(ABOUT 10-15 FEET IN FRONT OF MY CAR). THE IMPACT OF THE COLLISION ON THE MAZDA PROTG CAUSES IT TO MOVE FORWARD INTO THE OWNER'S GARAGE ABOUT 4-5 FEET DEEP AND BROKE THE GARAGE DOOR ALONG THE WAY. MY CAR EVEN COULD NOT BEEN STOPPED BY THE MAZDA AND DESPITE MY WIFE CONTINUOUS EFFORT TO STEP ON THE BRAKE FULL FORCE AND PULLING THE SHIFT TO THE LOWEST GEAR POSITION. MY CAR KEPT MOVING TO THE LEFT SIDE OF THE DRIVEWAY TOWARDS 6 FEET HIGH BUSHES. THE CAR RAN OVER THE BUSHES AND WAS FINALLY STOPPED BY A DECK BELONGED TO ANOTHER NEIGHBOR ABOUT 8-10 FEET AWAY. AT THAT TIME, IT IS ONLY 490 MILES ON THE ODOMETER. THE HONDA HAD THE CAR CHECKED BY A TECHNICIAN/ENGINEER FROM AHM(AMERICAN HONDA MOTORS). THE TECHNICIAN COULD NOT IDENTIFY THE CAUSE OF THE FAILURE AND SENT ME AN INVOICE STATED AFTER ALL INSPECTIONS COMPLETED IT WAS DETERMINED BY AHM THE VEHICLE IS OPERATING AS DESIGNED AND ASKED ME TO CONTACT MY INSURANCE COMPANY FOR THE REST OF ISSUES. IT MEANS THAT AHM DID NOT IDENTIFY AND FIX THE PROBLEM ABOUT THE DANGEROUS VEHICLE AND WANT TO THROW IT BACK TO CONSUMER AND LET CONSUMER CONTINUE TO TEST THEIR BRAKES WITH CONSUMER'S LIFE UNTIL MORE SERIOUS ACCIDENT HAPPEN. I COULD NOT BELIEVE THAT AHM IS SO HASTY TO DEAL WITH THIS SERIOUS PROBLEM. IF THIS IS HAPPENED ON HIGHWAY WITH 65 MPH, IT COULD KILL TWO LITTLE GIRLS AND MY WIFE ON THE BOARD AS WELL AS OTHERS ON THE ROAD WITH ITS 4500 LBS WT. *TR

Summary

THIS IS IN REFERENCE TO THE 2009 AND 2010 HONDA PILOT, ALL TRIM LEVELS. THE SPEEDOMETER ONLY HAS NUMERICAL MARKINGS FOR EVERY 20 MPH, SUCH AS 40, 60, ETC. BETWEEN THESE ARE ENGRAVED LINES ONLY AT INCREMENTS OF EVERY 5 MPH. HOWEVER THE ENGRAVINGS ARE SO CLOSE IN COLOR TO THE BACKGROUND THAT THEY BECOME INVISIBLE DURING MANY DAYLIGHT CONDITIONS, SUCH AS VARIABLE SHADOWS, FLAT LIGHTING, DEEP SHADOWS, ETC. RATHER THAN BEING ABLE TO ACCURATELY ASCERTAIN YOUR SPEED BY A QUICK GLANCE AT THE SPEEDOMETER, WHICH IS A VERY BASIC AND ESSENTIAL SAFETY OBLIGATION (AND ONE WHICH IS VERY EASY TO COMPLY WITH, SUCH AS DONE ON THE HONDA CR-V) THE 2009-2010 HONDA PILOT REQUIRES THAT YOU DIVERT YOUR ATTENTION FROM THE ROADWAY FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME, AS MUCH AS 2.5 TO 3 SECONDS, TO ACCOUNT FOR FOCUSING ON THE SPEEDOMETER, LOCATING A LINE, DISCERNING THAT FROM THE BACKGROUND, ETC, SIMILAR OR LONGER THAN THE TIME REQUIRED TO PERCEIVE, EVALUATE, DECIDE AND REACT TO AN EMERGENCY CONDITION ON THE ROADWAY. IN MANY CASES, EVEN WHEN DIVERTING YOUR CONCENTRATION FOR AN EXTENDED TIME AWAY FROM THE ROADWAY, YOU ARE UNABLE TO ACCURATELY DETERMINE YOUR SPEED. AT 60 MPH A VEHICLE WILL HAVE TRAVELED OVER 220 FEET IN 2.5 SECONDS. THIS CREATES A VERY DANGEROUS CONDITION, CERTAINLY EQUAL TO OR GREATER THAN MANY OTHER CAUSES OF DISTRACTED DRIVING. I NOTIFIED HONDA OF THIS CONCERN BY TELEPHONE, BUT HAVE NEVER RECEIVED EVEN A RETURN CALL ACKNOWLEDGING MY CONCERN. I BELIEVE THAT THEY WILL NOT TAKE ANY ACTION UNLESS COMPELLED TO DO SO BY YOUR AGENCY. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION. *TR

Summary

MY VEHICLE IS A 2010 HONDA PILOT TOURING. THE BODY OF THE STEERING WHEEL HAS A HOLE IN THE PLASTIC CASING ON EACH SIDE--I THINK TO GIVE ACCESS TO A SCREW. THESE HOLES FALL FAIRLY CLOSE TO WHERE MY FINGERS NATURALLY LIE WHILE DRIVING. TODAY, WHILE DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY, MY INDEX FINGER GOT ENTRAPPED IN ONE OF THESE HOLES AT THE FIRST KNUCKLE. THIS PREVENTED ME FROM STEERING. I PULLED OFF THE HIGHWAY AND MANAGED TO EXTRICATE MY FINGER. HOWEVER, THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN VERY DANGEROUS IF I HAD BEEN REQUIRED TO MAKE ANY TURNS, AND IT CAN EASILY BE FIXED WITH A PLASTIC PLUG. ADMITTEDLY, I SHOULDN'T HAVE STUCK MY FINGER IN THE HOLE--BUT IF I CAN BE THAT SILLY, SO CAN OTHER PEOPLE. *TR
