anchor3n1 says, "yes". That would be more efficient for everyone on the issues of the 9 spd. tranny.
Interesting information.No Leonard. anchor3n1 received an airbag recall notice/letter directly from Honda and within the letter Honda stated that the CRV should be taken out of use until the airbag was replaced/fixed. And, if this presented an issue that Honda will provide a loaner vehicle until the recall repair was completed.
THE LOANER VEHICLE WAS NOT OFFERED OR PROVIDED BY THE DEALER BUT RATHER IT WAS PROVIDED BY AMERICAN HONDA CORP :wink:
anchor3n1 appreciates Honda's attentiveness and response to the airbag problem and thus is confidant that they will again respond professionally to the transmission issue should it turn into a recall:grin:
Looks like motor trend had to replace the nine speed on their long term review model.
anchor3n1 understands.Interesting information.
I will be honest, I am a bit weirded out by all the third-person speak,
However anchor3n1 rejoices that Leonard has learned a new something today and that Leonard has come to appreciate the fun of "third-person speak" forum posts & replies as well. :wink:but ...
Regardless, Leonard has learned something new today, perhaps!
:grin:Poorman is still going to drive it the same way as well.....14 months and over 19K on her/his ...
anchor3n1 realizes that this post is a departure from the thread topic and thanks readers (and mods)for their patience. Now let's get back to the topic at hand - the ZF 9sp tranny - (but of course should anyone else want to try their hand at "third-person speak - and excessive emoji use-, anchor3n1 won't mind:wink.Yoda's good with consolidation.
Darn it, anchor3n1, now you've got me doing it...:surprise:
Great poll idea.Hey, I do all kinds of things
So again, let's run the numbers boys and girls.....we've had ~30 (?) reported issues with the 9 speeds in the 2016 Pilots, how many are out there with NO issues. Yes I only have over 19K miles in ~14 months of ownership on mine, as time goes we will see.
Obviously your call on what to do. My two cents, don't let this forum scare you off from, in my opinion, a great vehicle. Is it perfect, no. But, if it checks all of the boxes of what you need it for, you can't go wrong.My dealer called me to pick up my new pilot elite next week.
I'm not sure if I should get it or cancel my purchase....
Having had my mine replaced with well under 20k miles on it, I was puzzled that the dealer repairing the MT car didn't find any contamination or problem with the cooler. I thought a defective tranny cooler was the issue, as it was with mine, and the tranny was replaced as collateral damage. I'd hate to think there are two potential failure points: the cooler and something else. The replacement part was described to me as redesigned and involving all new hoses, etc.What I have been reading is failures due to coolant contamination... Seemingly a failure in the transmission cooler where transmission fluid was allowed to mix with coolant. Not sure if that's a plumbing, sealing, brazing issue, or casting porosity or what... Haven't seen a definite root cause yet.
