2010 Honda Pilot Owner Comments

problem #2

Apr 162010


  • 490 miles


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 protÉGÉ in the neighbor's driveway(about 10-15 feet in front of my car). The impact of the collision on the Mazda protÉGÉ 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.
