The 2nd trip to the dealer they diagnosed it and replaced some engine sensor, which did not resolve the problem.
The reason I know it didn't resolve the problem is the lights went off and the car became undrivable again, this time we have a tow truck scheduled for tomorrow to take it in for the third time. I'm going to let Honda start racking up little tow bills because I'm not driving this car like this, even though the lights went away I still don't trust it. The dealer has been very nice through all of this and I don't blame them. They didn't build this thing to be so complicated. It just has too many parts and computer systems. I suspect they ultimately won't fix it because it's just too complicated, and I suspect that I will ultimately be left to seek a lemon claim against Honda for this vehicle. This car is about to meet the legal definition of a lemon very soon. It is a shame that such a beautiful piece of machinery will probably not get to live out it's normal expected life. 5,000 miles and it's basically unusable for dependable travel. I will never trust this vehicle. Wifey wants to get another one because it's really nice, and although it has a nice ride, fit and finish, I doubt I will go for this car again. I think they cut major cost out of this thing in terms of quality of parts. Hopefully I can get Honda to just buy this thing back without involving attorneys. Once this ordeal is finished with this junky Pilot I will probably buy a Lexus GX 460...Seems a little more old fashioned, probably with less complicated computer problems. I don't have time to be taking a $40,000 car to the dealership every couple weeks. I'm not at all happy to be a Pilot owner about 4 months in and very much regretting the decision to buy this. I'll keep y'all posted on any progress.
