problem #4

Sep 012016

Pilot EXL 3.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160,000 miles


This a clear case of Honda's planned obsolescence when a known weak link breaks at 160,000 on 60 plus Pilots

just like clock work. So when people can't afford to repair a problem like this known flaw which is very expensive. they do just what Honda wants them to, and purchase a new car! I am retired and have some difficulty taking care of tasks like these.Shame on Honda for not stepping up to repair this known flaw. Randy Watson

Pilot EX 3.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles

I copied this from another post but it is accurate to my experience/feeling.

The driver left seat support metal broke leaving the seat unattached to the frame. The seat moves forward and back and rocks backward on acceleration. This is obviously a design and manufacturer defect. Honda will not replace the seat at no cost and will not assign a recall. This is a serious safety issue and Honda should take full responsibility for replacement before an accident causes unnecessary injury to the driver.

Major safety issue. Honda dealership wants to remove seat and all under seat supports and install new at my expense. I really need to know what Honda is going to do before I have an accident or injury due to failure of seat. Back is already strained due to twisting of seat failure by Honda.
