Honda recalls the 2013 Pilot and Odyssey

Honda is recalling certain model year 2013 Pilot 2WD and 4WD vehicles and certain model year 2013 Odyssey vehicles.

During manufacturing of the engine piston, it is possible that the heat treatment process was not properly applied, resulting in the piston having an insufficient hardness level, making it more susceptible to premature wear.

Honda Odyssey recall number: JB4
Honda Pilot recall number: JB5
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V382000
Component: Engine
Potential Number of Units Affected: 270

Consequence:
A worn piston may suddenly fail, causing the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy:
Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the engine short block free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 16, 2013. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.

Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty: 1-800-424-9153); or go to Safercar.
