Dashboard lights on

I have a 2016 Pilot AWD EX, bought new. About a year ago the Emissions light came on. Took it to the dealer, but it had gone off by then. Since then, it comes on and goes off periodically. I mentioned it to dealer for the second time while having the oil changed and he said he couldn’t find anything wrong. So about a week ago several lights came on, including emissions problem light, up hill starting assistance light, power steering problem light, and AWD problem light. The car was running fine. After a day, the lights went off. Then yesterday all the lights came back on and this morning I noticed it was idling rough. I called my dealer service department and explained what happened and he knew exactly what was wrong. Said he had seen 8-10 pilots in past year with same problem. It needs fuel injectors replaced! I have 70k miles so my warranty is up so it’s going to be around $2,000. He said the ones he’s replaced have been around 30k miles and we’re under warranty. I do regular maintenance at this dealership. I looked on an online forum for pilots and this is a common problem for 2016 pilots. I’ve owned a couple of Honda’s and I’ve never had a problem, so to hear this, I’m sick. I’m going to speak with Honda America, as advised by a person on the forum, and if I don’t get answers or resolution, I’m going to be one unsatisfied owner. I love my pilot and planned on keeping in for years. I’m not one to trade every 4-5 years. I buy it and drive it for a very long time. But, if this isn’t fixed, I’ll consider myself an ex-Honda owner and I won’t buy Honda again.

The Honda pilot feels like a luxury vehicle at a non luxury vehicle price!

My 2017 Honda pilot is sleek, smooth, comfortable, roomy and high tech! I previously owned. 2015 Honda pilot and hated it because it didn't not have the features that I felt it should for the price. I was happy to see that Honda upgraded the 2017 pilot with all of the features I wanted. I fell in love with my 2017! Now I feel like I got exactly what I paid for the car play makes driving and listening to music a breeze. The seats fold up quickly and easily with little to no effort at all! The only problem I have with my heated seats is that they are not as hot as I would like. I love the built in remote start, side mirror and reverse camera! The back seats are very spacious even for adults.

Perfect family friendly car. Safe and reliable for all family adventures.

Overall I absolutely love my pilot. It is easy to drive and drives very nicely. The trunk with the third row down gives my plenty of trunk space. I also like that I can put up all of the third row or partial. This helps when I still need a stroller but need to use the 3rd row as well. The navigation is user friendly and intuitive. My only problem is a often get an error code that I haven't been able to correct. The error code has not been an issue when using the navigation with a destination input. The backseat is spacious enough for 2 car seats to easily fit. I feel comfortable and safe in my car. I would buy a pilot again and would absolutely recommend it to a friend.
