On April 17, 2016 at 3.30 pm while forward parking my vehicle, I experienced a sudden uncontrolled acceleration, resulting in the vehicle impacting the wall in front of my parking spot. The wall was apx. 20 ft from the car at the time of this incident. I had my foot on the brake during the later stages of the parking maneuver and speed was minimal <5 km/H). Before coming to a standstill, the engine sprung to maximum RPM without me ever touching the accelerator. I didn't have time to control it and the brakes were also ineffective. Upon impact the driver front airbag deployed and the horn started. I switched off the engine and removed the keys. Several witnesses came forward for assistance, police, ambulance and fire department were on site. A police report was filed. This incident is very concerning; people could have been seriously injured had this happened in another location or if passersby where present.

My 2014 Honda Pilot ex-L has a multi major issues. Starting with a major water leak inside the passenger compartment. Vehicle stalling in the middle of a left hand turn during the rain. Hesitation in the motor when traveling at 45 mph. This occurs all the time when driving. Lunging forward while the brake is engaged. Pulling to the right, the vehicle should be in alignment. This has been going on since the day of purchase. Whining in the power steering no matter which way you are turning. Lifters are tapping under the hood. The list goes on. Tried to have these issues addressed at the dealership and all I got was there is nothing wrong with the Pilot. It runs the way it should. And now they will not even look at the vehicle as they told me to never bring it back to their dealership. I do not feel safe driving this Pilot, I loved my 2012 Pilot.
