Banned from wife’s 2005 Pilot LX
I’m surprised Honda didn’t tell folks to cover the grill with a piece of cardboard to reduce airflow across the radiator. That might have worked better than their “fixes.”While I can understand the frustration keep in mimd that the vehicles in the article that are having the issues are the 1.5 turbo equipped vehicles, not the 3.5 J engines in the Pilot, Passport and Ridgeline. I look at the 1.5 turbo issue as the 787 Dreamliner of the Honda line. I have no concerns about flying on a 737.
And on a side note Honda should be ashamed of themselves for putting that go-cart engine into the new Accord. On the test drive I took a bit over a year ago the weight of the car plus me (no salesman) seemed too much for the engine. That was my first impression pulling out of the dealer’s lot onto a 35 mph road. I can only imagine how much worse it gets with three passengers and luggage.
