Engine, August 27, 2013
RepairPal Expert Overview:

The pistons are one of the main components in the lower section of the engine, there is one piston inside of each cylinder. It is possible that some pistons were not properly heat treated during their manufacturing process. This would reduce the hardness of the metal making it more susceptible to premature wear. A worn piston may fail unexpectedly causing the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the lower part of the engine assembly, the "short block", to correct this concern.

Brakes, March 14, 2013
RepairPal Expert Overview:

The Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) system is designed to help keep the vehicle from skidding if the driver tries to round a corner too quickly. This is achieved by applying the brake at one or more wheels as necessary. During the manufacturing process an electrical capacitor in the VSA control module may have been damaged. This can cause intermittent minor application of the brakes or if the driver were to apply the brakes while the VSA is malfunctioning, the vehicle may come to an abrupt stop. Additionally, due to a loose electrical ground connection, on certain 2005 Pilots the VSA system may unexpectedly apply partial brake force without illumination of the brake lights. Sudden inadvertent braking, especially without illumination of the brake lights, may increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will install a partial wiring harness containing a capacitor for the VSA system, the affected Pilots models will have their ground connection tightened.

During manufacturing, some of the metal rivets used to secure components of the driver's airbag may not have been installed. A missing rivet could alter the performance of the airbag during deployment, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will inspect the driver's airbag module and replace it if necessary.

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. 

Models : Honda CR-V, Honda Pilot
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.
