2016 Honda Pilot: Heated Steering Wheel Does Not Work

by Scott Oldham, Editor in Chief on December 18, 2015

2016 Honda Pilot

We've been banging around in our long-term 2016 Honda Pilot for a little more than a month now and we have our first mechanical issue. I wouldn't call it serious, but it's certainly annoying on a brand new vehicle that's been driven 3,000 miles.

This morning the Pilot's heated steering wheel was a no-show.

Now, I'm not sure if we took delivery of the vehicle with this malfunction and I'm just the first to notice, or if it worked before and now it does not. Either way, it's busted. Push the button on the lower left of the steering and nothing happens. No lights indicating that it's operating and no warmth within the Honda's leather-wrapped rim.

And now the decision all car owners face when something goes awry. Should we get it fixed now, or live with it for a while and have it addressed when the Pilot goes in for its first scheduled maintenance?

What would you do?
