My VIN's 2HKYF1*****001069. Am I screwed as well? I think I'm OK since my last 5 digits are 01069 which falls out of range of #13603 through #17522. But then again, I've never been accused of being sharp. Thanks.PrG said:Ooh ... good catch ... I'm affected ...
Looks like all early production PILOTs.
I'm not sure that the owners of the Pilots affected by this recall would be so keen in seeing your glee in their misfortune...just a thought...l102374 said:We just took delivery of my wife's Pilot last week and MISSED the problem by 2468 vehicles...
In the CUSTOMER NOTIFICATION section of the TSB, it clearly states that, "Some vehicles affected by this recall are still in dealer inventory. According to Federal law, those vehicles cannot be sold or leased until they are repaired."pilotdude said:For the cars with this issue that had not been sold, can they sell them as new after making the fix? If not, they have a huge incentive to not "discover" the problem until all those units are sold right?
Replacing the water pump is really not a big deal. I have done it on various Hondas a couple of time. A major PITA, but a relative simple part with an important function. Goto your parts counter and ask to see one.pilotdude said:Can those of us affected expect anything in the way of compensation for this? It definitely affects the value of the car right? If I were to sell after getting it fixed and had to tell someone the waterpump had been replaced, knock off $1000 from the selling price.
