Just starting this thread so people will have one place to look to see all the new TSB's that are out.

Nice to get an extra 12k warranty.

Just got notice in the mail of three National Traffic & Motor Vehicle Safety Act notices on my 2016 Honda Pilot. These "FMVSS" notices, numbers 126, 135 and 138 are all fixed by a software update (that my local dealer has - so assume others have it as well). They impact Electronic Stability Control System - VSA warning light may not illuminate; ABS/Brake warning lights may not illuminate, and Tire pressure monitoring system may not illuminate, (respectively). Please, if these notices don't go in the TSB section, just read about it and go on - no lectures. Thanks.

^^^^ Those notices pertain to the Honda TSB 15-073. The software update goes by several "names". It isn't just head-unit software that gets updated; there are literally dozens of computerized electronic modules in these vehicles, each with their own firmware. Chaos ensues...

Thanks for the link. For my Elite (purchased in Mid Nov), showing as no recalls. Not sure whether software updates are being considered as recalls

Per the information on my Pilot's (VIN/build date) service receipts I've had TSBs(?):

FCAN-BUS 15-073
Audio Navigation software 13-001 & 13-024

updates applied.

I believe that link is only for safety related recalls, not all TSB are listed there for my car. This TSB for 9 speed transmission is not safety related..

FEEDBACK: Honda/Acura Addresses 9 Speed Transmission Issues with TSB 15-054 12/22/15 - Acura MDX Forum : Acura MDX SUV Forums



it looks some software updates are out for the 9 speed transmission for MDX



Hi TheBirdMan, do you have any inside info on when this is coming to Pilot? Should be a big help to members who has a lot of problem with it. I am fine with the transmission, but some improvements at low speed is definitely helpful.

Nice find!

Here's an image so folks won't need to hunt:

Took my Pilot to dealer for a recall (TSB) on Dec 23. Transmission feels much smoother after, no more low speed surges (it was very mild before the recall). So far no complaint.

Did you get the odometer TSB, or the nav unit TSB?

It is there possibly a new one that is related to the transmission?

In the recall letter, it states M50, instrument panel software upgrade. Didn't say anything about transmission though.
