Honda Pilot experiences frightening incident of sudden unintended acceleration
We bought two new Honda Pilot EX-Ls in 2006. In February 2010 one suddenly
opened up full throttle in drive at 5000 RPMs with my husband's foot on the
brake. American Honda denied there was anything wrong with the car after 3
days at a local Honda service department. We sold that car (it had 41,000
miles) to an Acura dealer. About two weeks later, on 2.28.2010, the same
thing happened with our other Pilot with 46,000+ miles on a residential
street with light traffic. This time my husband had the presence of mind to
video what happened and we shared it with American Honda. The District
Service Representative inspected the car. With the video in hand, Honda
still said the car was "operating within normal parameters." It is not a
coincidence that these two 2006 Pilots experienced sudden unintended
acceleration. There are other remarkably similar complaints on the NHTSA
web site (2004 - 2007 models). The problem with these cars must be
ascertained or they should be taken off the road before someone is killed.
The problem appears not to be unique to Toyota. As Edmunds.com CEO Jeremy
Anwyl said on February 10, 2010: "As Toyota's experience in recent months
clearly demonstrates, it is no longer an option for car companies to
dismiss consumer complaints, even if the event is difficult to replicate or
diagnose." At NHTSA's request, we provided NHTSA with this video and made
a report. The Miami NBC-owned TV station ran this news story:
3722.html. We still own a Honda Element and a new Acura MDX, though we
sold both Pilots immediately and notified Honda.
