My friend with a 2011 Pilot is having the piston ring recall done per the TSB. I'm curious if the dealer does the piston ring replacement. I can't believe a dealer has the tools and machines, let alone the tech expertise to do this. No offense intended towards any Honda techs. Surely they are enthusiasts and are capable of doing just about any job on the car, but I would expect the dealers sends out the block to a machine shop to resolve the piston ring issue and check the block/bores for any warping, scoring, etc.
It won’t be the oil change / rattle finding techs doing the job. The master techs are very capable of doing the job correctly.
