If all this is documented, and there is text stating multiple failed attempts to fix the problem, you have a strong lemon law case. Press the issue with Honda, and if they do not respond, seek an attorney.All the technicians that drove my car agreed something is definitely wrong, they replaced the torque convertor, but that did not help. Basically, they can’t fix it and waiting for update from Honda. There is no update according to the District Manager! It's a software issue and I asked them to turn it off but they can't do that either. Yesterday they offered me a "Honda Care Vehicle Service Contract" but have not agreed to it yet. Not fair for the others having trouble and something has to be done. This is crazy! I am thinking of reaching out to the Consumer Protection Agency, BBB or maybe as far as a local TV network investigative reporter.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
Honda sells 100K+ Honda Pilots a year and has had VCM in the Pilot since 2006. Given that info, it seems that there are a very small percentage of owners here reporting the issue. We test drove 4 different Pilots before buying our 2013 and none had noticeable VCM vibrations. Ours travels 80 hwy miles every week day (which is where VCM kicks in the most). We have burned no oil and feel no vibrations.My wife and I had finally agreed that this was the car we were saving towards after so much research. Reading about the VCM and oil consumption problems is really concerning. Are they enough to abandon the thought of buying a 2013 Pilot Touring FWD as we had hoped. Is it widespread and annoys everyone who owns one? Your time and experience is very much appreciated in advance.
