Car Recalls

Recalls are issued for cars with safety-related defects or problems

2003 Honda Pilot recalls

 

Drive Train, December 11, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

These vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission have a system that prevents the ignition key from being removed from the ignition lock unless the transmission is in the park position. A part in this system can wear and allow the key to be removed when the transmission is not in park. When the transmission is not in park, the vehicle may roll unexpectedly increasing the risk of a crash. To address this concern, dealers will install an updated shift interlock lever and if necessary, replace the ignition switch.

Electrical & Lights, March 29, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The electrical terminal for the low beam headlights may wear in the electrical connecter at the combination headlight switch. This can cause increased electrical resistance and melting of the terminal ends within the wiring harness connector. Failure of the electrical connector can cause the low beam headlights to become inoperative, reducing driver visibility and increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will repair the damaged terminal harness or replace the combination lighting switch as necessary to correct this concern. The Honda recall number is S34.

Drive Train, April 27, 2004

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda and Acura are recalling numerous 2001–2004 vehicles to inspect for an internal automatic transmission fault. This fault could result in gear failure, which can cause the transmission to lock up. If the transmission were to lock up with the vehicle in motion, a crash could result. If the inspection reveals internal transmission damage, the transmission will be replaced. If no internal damaged is noted, the transmission oil cooler return line will be revised in order to increase fluid flow. For more information, please call Honda at 1-800-999-1009 or Acura at 1-800-382-2238.
