Honda Export Service Bulletin

BACKGROUND
Some water pump castings are not within specifications because of a manufacturing die problem. As a result, the timing belt tensioner pulley is misaligned. This pulley misalignment causes the timing belt to contact a bolt on the cylinder head, eventually damaging the belt. In the worst case, a broken timing belt will cause the engine to stall, which could result in a crash.

Affected Vehicles:

KA: From VIN 2HKYF1...3H513603 thru
2HKYF1...3H517522
KX: From VIN 2HKYF1...3H900004 thru

Before everyone gets worried, these were Pilots built near the middle of July last year.

While that is probably true, this is the last thing you want to think about when you are getting ready to go on a long trip.

Yeah, that's true. The guy over at edmunds.com who took his family on a long road trip didn't seem that happy, to say the least. He even wrote a separate rant piece, besides the road report, criticizing Honda's inattentive nature of their recall policy. I'd be p'd off too.
