I don't think this article has correct information. It says the non turbo engines also had this issue but they never had them. It was just the turbo models. Well thankfully we don't need to be worried because we don't have the 1.5T in the Pilot so this article doesn't apply to us. It's still scary for potential/current Honda owners with this engine. This is why you should always get your oil changes done on time!!!

'This is why you should always get your oil changes done on time!!!'

That's why I always do MY OWN oil changes on time! I have to admit, I had neglected doing any changes on the ATF though on my 08 Pilot. Now I'm doing them myself too. EZ as can be and you KNOW for sure what went in there.

For me, all of them is basically engine oil and tranny.

On my 15, I've also done transfer case and rear end.

I'm not a firm believer that PS fluids, and/or brake fluids need changed much or ever.
If and when I bleed the brakes, that changes most of it anyhows.
And, I'm well aware that Brake fluid attract moisture/water like flies on Sh*t.

Clean PS fluid prevents PSP failure. Very Very important.
Bleed brakes until fluid comes out clear at each caliper = better braking.

Just to drive the point further replacing PS and PB fluids makes sense. They are the easiest to ignore and forget. I have to change my ways 😆
