When a modern infotainment system freezes, it takes other important vehicle functions down with it. Honda has been sued for shipping a defective head unit that repeatedly disables the radio, backup camera, navigation, and other entertainment systems in the 2018-2019 Odyssey and 2019 Pilot.
Clips designed to hold the 2019 Pilot and Rideline’s b-pillar panels in place have mounting holes that are too big. Why does that matter? Because it could stop the side curtain airbags from deploying in a crash. Seriously.
The 2018 Pilot and Ridgeline have been recalled because of a dangerous seat issue. The seat rivets can fail to secure the seat slide rails to the forward part of the seats, something that could cause the front seats to separate from the floors in a crash.
You're not going to be going far in some 2015-2016 Honda and Acura vehicles, because the gas tanks leak. Honda blames the problem on insufficient welds which may separate and allow fuel to leak out. Weld, that stinks.
