Honda just included '08 Pilots in airbag recall (I have an '08)...Anyone think the Honda airbag recall will extend to '07-'15 RL. Mine's an '07... just waiting for the news!
Thanks Dnick! I will be bringing that printout along with the bulletin stating they will give the customer a loaner until repairs are completed when I go to the dealership Monday. We'll see if this "jump-starts" the process. Still no letter from Honda and Honda CS was no help when I called.If you check back in this (or other?) thread, you'll find a Honda link that you can check for yourself by entering your VIN. If it's covered (most likely is), then take that with you to the dealer when you go in.
We recently traded our '08 Pilot and were looking at 3 specific vehicles: 2012-2015 Pilot; 2014-new Sorento; 2012-2013 Acura MDXJust got my second recall letter last week for the '08 Pilot airbag recall. Gona call dealer again this week. Last time they just said I'm in their computer list and will be contacted when my part arrives.
Was thinking about trying the "I want a temp rental car til part arrives" threat next time I call. Wonder what they will say. Bad thing if they come thru and want to keep my Pilot during the wait, I need my Pilot to haul gear at least 2-4 times a month. I doubt I'd get a SUV as temp auto. But I may just try it. May find that my name slides up the wait list quickly.
I too am at this point just online SUV shopping. Just joined the Kia Sorento owners club to read up on the '16 Sorento I'm considering as trade for my '08 Pilot.
Have to go test drive the Sorento to see if it doesn't feel too small compared to my Pilot. Also, considering the 4Runner, HL, Jeep GC and others. Mostly looking at mid-sized SUV's. I will see if I can live with the smaller sized vehicles.
