2005 Honda Pilot EX 4WD 4dr SUV w/Leather (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Blown engine at 74k miles. No consideration or
assistance from Honda Headquarters. No assistance from Rt 23 Honda in Pompton Plains NJ
Car was garage kept and maintenance schedule done at dealer. Filter and oil changed every 5K.
car ran well until after sitting in garage for 1 week while on vacation. Starting the car caused car to lurch and make rattling noise from engine.
Car Faltbed delivered to dealer who started the car to determine problem. In doing so continued the rattling noise causing the connecting rod to push though the block and oil pan. The dealer called to say the engine was blown and asked if I had driven though high water. No was the answer. Result Honda
wants $6+K for fix
Used to be the reliability and durability of Honda cars.
Better communications from Honda Headquarters.
Better Customer service
Better diagnostics on customer complaints.
