Check engine and VSA light on. Vehicle jerks and shakes/ rough when slowing down. Diagnosis Misfire in cylinder two- foul plug ( that was just replaced), burning up oil rapidly. Piston rings are defective on a car with 75000 k miles. The repair is $5k after I just spent $2k on plugs, coils, replaced again, alternator. Undsafe and feels like car will crash. This was recall on 2013 and class action suit. Not on 2014 after they knew about issue!! Wreckless

The contact owns a 2014 Honda Pilot. While at a stop, the vehicle failed to accelerate without warning. The vehicle was taken to a dealer, but the failure could not be duplicated. The technician stated that the failure was due to the contact's driving style. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure recurred randomly. The failure mileage was approximately 30,000.

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.

Two incidents of sudden unintended acceleration. The first on January 31, 2014, the second on March 25, 2014. Both incidents occurred at a very slow rate of speed of approximately five miles per hour. In both situations the car was coming to a stop with the brake being applied. Suddenly, the rpms increased and the car suddenly moved forward with the break unable to stop the car even though both feet were applied to the brake peddle. The car was stopped by putting the gear shift into neutral and turning off the engine. This has been reported to Honda of America as well as to the local Honda dealer. The car was brought to the dealer two times, but the dealer unable to diagnose the problem. Honda of America (800 999-1009) has opened a case number which is: N012014-03-2600701. This is a potentially very dangerous situation. Updated 06/04/14
