Honda has lost it...

2013 Honda Pilot Touring w/Navigation and Rear Entertainment 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I have bought 4 Honda's in my lifetime, including the 2013 Pilot touring 4wd.
Only some minor issues thus far, but for sure the dealerships and Honda corporate are always trying to downplay the problems or consider them "normal". Honda has lost me for life.
My other complaints are related to the ergonomics of the vehicle.
1) Can't load MP3 or WMA files on the hard drive. CD songs only.
2) Navigation doesn't show as much info as even a $80 GPS and you have to pay $150 for map updates.
3) No always on compass. The only compass is the navigation and it only points toward the north. Doesn't show you what direction you are heading.
4)Climate controls are ridiculous and hard to find/use.

Worst Features

Navigation, climate control, seat comfort, and customer support. Calling all issues normal, is not customer support. VCM should have a user disable function. More ratios for the transmission.
