WASHINGTON — American Honda is recalling 270 2013 Honda Pilot and Honda Odyssey vehicles because a worn piston may suddenly fail, causing the engine to stall, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"During manufacturing of the engine piston, it is possible that the heat treatment process was not properly applied, resulting in the piston having an insufficient hardness level, making it more susceptible to premature wear," said NHTSA in its summary of the problem. "A worn piston may suddenly fail, causing the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash."

No related component failures, crashes or injuries have been reported, the company said. Honda dealers will replace the engine short block. The recall is expected to begin on September 16. Owners can contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009 or by visiting Recalls.Honda.com to see if their vehicles require repair.

Edmunds says: It's best to check with Honda to determine if your 2013 Pilot or Odyssey falls within the VIN range and dates of manufacture of the recalled vehicles.
