if Honda monitors this forum or not; but I suspect they do correct and change what needs to be changed as they discover from dealers and/or other sources. Some of the participants in the MDX forum have indicated they think Honda does watch the forums. I don't know if this is reality or not. I do know that(from watching the MDX forum) problems that were discovered on early models of the MDX were corrected on later models even before the year model change. Hopefully Honda will do the same thing with the Pilot. Maybe they have adjusted that wild robot that is causing the bad weld on the front struts:4:
I bet Honda monitors. I talked to a woman just 2 days ago who works for a large multinational company. Her job? Internet monitor. She monitors the internet for information that could bear on stock price. She prepares a report for the executives and has it on their desk every morning by 6 a.m. Honda would be a fool not to pay attention to this site.
Yes, it would pay Honda to monitor and correct. Having worked for a big OEM mfr, we know that warranty costs far outweigh the correction in the factory. Trouble is time. Esp if engineering and supplier changes have to flow thru the channel.
