  1. 2013 Honda Pilot ENGINE NHTSA Campaign #13V382000

    • Date Announced: AUGUST 27, 2013
    • Vehicles Affected: 270

    Summary: Honda is recalling certain model year 2013 Pilot 2WD and 4WD vehicles and certain model year 2013 Odyssey vehicles. During manufacturing of the engine piston, it is possible that the heat treatment process was not properly applied, resulting in the piston having an insufficient hardness level, making it more susceptible to premature wear.

    Consequence: A worn piston may suddenly fail, causing the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

    Actions: Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the engine short block free of charge. The recall began on September 16, 2013. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009. Honda's recall numbers are JB4 (Honda Odyssey) and JB5 (Honda Pilot). For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #13V382000 »
