An electrical capacitor may have been damaged during the manufacturing of the Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) control module causing intermittent, automatic, minor brake application. However, if the driver applies the brakes while the VSA is malfunctioning, the vehicle may come to an abrupt stop. Additionally, due to a loose ground connection, certain model year 2005 Pilots have a VSA system that may apply partial brake force, without the illumination of the brake lights, whether or not the driver is using the brakes. Sudden inadvertent braking, especially without illumination of the brake lights, may increase the risk of a vehicle crash. Owners will be notified and instructed to take their vehicles to a dealer of their respective brand. The dealer will install a partial wiring harness containing a capacitor for the VSA modulator, free of charge. The affected model year 2005 Pilots will have their ground connection tightened.

JANUARY 2013 -- Honda Motor Co said it is recalling 777,000 late-model Pilot and Odyssey vehicles in the United States and Canada due to a problem with the deployment of driver's side airbags, American Honda said on Friday.

No crashes or injuries have been reported in relation to the issue, Honda said.

DECEMBER 2011 -- In December 2011, this recall was expanded to include an additional 272,779 vehicles and 640 air bags sold as replacement parts. Because Honda is unable to ascertain on which vehicles the 604 replacement air bags were installed, an additional 603,241 vehicles are also being recalled. The total number of vehicles being recalled is now 1,709,477. This recall concerns certain vehicles falling within the following make, model, and model year populations, inclusive of this expansion: model year 2001-2002 Honda Accord, model year 2001-2003 Civic 2-door and 4-door model, model year 2002-2003 CR-V, model year 2001-2003 Odyssey, model year 2003 Acura CL, model year 2003 pilot and model year 2002-2003 Acura TL vehicles. This recall is related to a series of recalls on these vehicles in which Honda is replacing the inflators within the driver's side air bag to address a defective condition. This recall addresses both air bags that were originally installed in the vehicles, as well as replacement air bags that may have been installed as replacement service parts. A replacement air bag may have been installed, as one example, if a vehicle had been in a crash necessitating the replacement of the driver's air bag. In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's air bag, the inflator could produce excessive internal pressure that could cause the inflator to rupture with metal fragments striking and injuring the driver or other occupants. Owners of all vehicles on which a replacement service air bag may have been installed will be notified. Dealers will inspect vehicles, and where a defective air bag inflator is identified, the inflator will be replaced, free of charge. The safety recall began on or about june 27, 2011. Owners of vehicles involved in the december 2011 expansion will be notified in december 2011. This safety recall campaign is related to recalls 08v-593, 09v-259, and 10v-041.

NEWS:   Honda recalls 310,773 Pilots in the US

DETROIT NEWS -- September 9,  2011 – Honda Motor Co. says it is recalling 310,773 Pilot vehicles in the U.S. to inspect and potentially replace the front seat belts due to problems with the belts' stitching.

Honda said Friday it is voluntarily recalling Pilots from the 2009 through 2011 model years.

The automaker says that the driver- and front-passenger seat belts may have been manufactured improperly.

The stitching connecting the lap section of the belts to the outboard anchor webbing may be incomplete or missing. That means the belts may potentially come loose in a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

Honda says there have been no injuries because of the defects.

Honda wants owners of the recall-affected Pilots to take them to an authorized dealer for inspection when they receive a recall notice.
