I know there are dozens of threads on oil consumption for the 2nd gen pilots, and that this was due to software issues for the vcm and potentially the oil ring issue. My question is if there is a year that honda made a shift in the oil rings used in the motor to compensate for the actual issue with the rings?

I am in the market for a new to me car, and while I have no issue using the vcmuzzler or dealing with a software update or changing out plugs from the prior owner, I am scarred of buying one of these 2nd gen pilots and having an internal engine issue like the rings. Once the classaction suit came up, I would think honda would make an alternation in the vehicles to avoid further issues, but I've never heard of confirmation of this, nor of what year they made have started this kind of change. All I've read is that if the ecu reprogramming didn't work a lot of owners had their shortblocks either reringed or replaced.

Thanks!
