2011 Honda Pilot EX-L 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
i just bought a 2011 honda pilot EX-L 2wd on the spur of the moment,heres something that i did not notice on the test drive, there is something that you should know before you buy this high priced SUV! it has the ECO system also called the VCM this is were 3 or less cylinders shut down when you reach a certain speed, this is very noticeable it feels like a constant up or down shift or an engine misfire!this is to save fuel, i am very disappointed with this, on my 70+ mile trip back from the dealership the thrill of buying a new car sure went down the pipes! shame on you Honda if i wanted to save fuel i would have bought a FIT!
roomy, comfortable, drive great until the ECO or VCM kicks in!
honda you need to have a recall on this and take out ECO-VCM system! very disappointed!
