My 2016 pilot has 60000mi on it and is exhibiting the same symptoms. My dealership also narrowed it down to fuel injectors. Unfortunately my aftermarket warranty is claiming it doesn't cover them. .
Yes. I have over 55k on my 2016 Pilot EXL AWD and just had the injectors replaced under full warranty. Was going to be around $2,000. Not sure if it was covered under powertrain or emissions. Nonetheless, I had the same problem at 44k and the tech said I ran bad gas ( missing on number 4) and cleared the codes only to last for a month until all the lights came on again. That cost me $300. Funny how it changed. One note to consider. I asked the tech if he put the same stock injectors in that were built for the car originally.....he said no that they improved them. Might be why I waited about 8 days for the parts to arrive from Japan. It seems to me that the warranty coverage depends from dealer to dealer. I made it a point when I brought my car in the second time that this problem is all over the pilot forums on the 2016 pilots and that it has and should be covered. I would call multiple dealers, explain the problems and ask if it is covered under warranty before taking your car in. I fortunately live where I can drive to many dealers within an hour. Thanks to all the people that post on this forum...it has helped me tremendously.My 2016 pilot elite just had all the fuel injectors replaced at 41,000 miles. Told me it wasn't covered under the warranty because it didn't throw "an emissions code" so they were out of warranty at 36,000 miles. Talk about splitting hairs, the fuel injectors failed! This is in addition to the air flow meter that handles the gas/air mix failing at 39,000 miles and the catalytic converter failing at 41,000 miles. So no warranty coverage, but Honda "understands" why I might be upset. As far as I am concerned, I am done with Honda. Grew up with them, sold my father's accord with over 220,000 miles when he could no longer drive, now done. No more Honda's in my family. I hope Honda "understands" my position when I change over to Toyota or Subaru. Maybe even Hyundai
As Honda's warranty booklet states, the powertrain warranty covers the engine's "cylinder block and head and all internal parts, timing gears and gaskets, timing chain/belt and cover, flywheel, valve covers, oil pan, oil pump, intake and exhaust manifolds, engine mounts, engine/powertrain control module, water pump, fuel pump, seals and gaskets." There's no mention of fuel injectors in the powertrain warranty.So what part of the 60k powertrain warranty doesn't cover defective fuel injectors?
2016 Pilot owner here. Thanks for the guidance. After months of the emissions system light going on and off and three trips to the dealer to inquire about it, yesterday 5 lights went off (emissions system, all wheel drive, power steering, hill start assist, and trailer stability assist). The lights went off this morning (naturally). Took it to the dealer, they investigated and said it needs new fuel injectors for $1500. I called baloney. I've filed a complaint with Honda and am waiting for a call back.*** CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT *** Honda KNOWS this is a problem with the 16 Pilot. The dealership told me $1,814.56 to replace injectors. I wish I would look like paying that. I purchased a new car for peace of mind. I called Honda Corp and filed a complaint. 3 days later I receive a call saying my cost would be $620, they would "cover" the rest. Seems fair to some, but I still think this is class action worthy. I have owed 6 brand new Hondas = 2 Accords, 2 Crosstours, Civic, and now this rachet Pilot.. Honda ATV, Generator and Lawn mower. Never once had fuel injectors go bad in any of them.
I say the squeaky wheel gets the oil. Call and complain
