This should not be happening. I feel like I drive a hunk of junk and need to have extra oil on hand just in case. My experience was, on my display it showed I had 10% oil left, then went to 5%, which it has done in the past. I knew I was due for an oil change. Then a few days (not more than a week) after the 5% display, my engine light came on. I called my service tech at the Honda dealership. He told me as long as the engine indicator display was not blinking, I could still drive it. I took it in 2 days later for the engine light and an oil change. I find out that the engine light is on due to NO oil at all on the dipstick. "The oil is past the stick." Also, he told me it does not have a leak and it is burning oil and that's normal. I need to "start checking my oil level every 1,000 miles now." I could not believe what I was hearing. Seriously? It's an '09, bought it in late '08. My Pilot has 54,000 miles on it and now I have to treat it like I drove a piece of junk? In my opinion, I think Honda is just trying to cover their butt. I'm getting rid of it and will never purchase another Honda again. I've read about a class action lawsuit regarding 2008-2010 Honda Accord Oil defect. I wonder if there will be one for the 09 Pilot as well? I'm done with Honda!Report it
