JB4 & JB5 – Pistons Out of Specification – 2013 Honda Pilot & Odyssey

NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V382
Manufacturer Honda (American Honda Motor Co.)
Components ENGINE
Potential Number of Units Affected 270

 

Premature Engine Piston Wear

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

 

Summary

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.
