Honda is voluntarily recalling 35,406 model-year 2016 Pilot SUVs in the United States because their warning lamps might not activate immediately due to a software error. It’s a compliance issue with the NHTSA.
Honda will need to update the Pilot’s combination meter software to fix them problem. Honda says it discovered the problem through internal tests and it’s not been reported by any owners.
Honda will start notifying 2016 Pilot owners in late November and they can bring their vehicles in for the software update free of charge. Additionally, owners of these vehicles can now determine if their vehicles require repair by going to www.recalls.honda.com or by calling (888) 234-2138.
The new Pilot hit the roads over the summer and was recently named a 2015 TOP SAFETY PICK+ by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety when equipped with optional front crash prevention.
