A voluntary safety recall has been issued by Honda Motor Co. Ltd, along with Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) for the 2016-2019 Honda Pilot.
The recall involves the panel comp hood, which apparently has an improper hood to grille gap. This gap can potentially cause air pressure to enter during extreme loads, causing the hood to vibrate. This, in turn, may cause the hood latch striker to crack. Should this happen, the hood may open and cause a potential accident.
While there have been no reported mishaps, HCPI is asking owners of the 137 Pilots sold in the country to contact their Honda dealer to avail of the Preventive Measure Campaign procedure. This is free of charge and should take around 30 minutes to perform. Should the hood need replacement, this will take 2 days.
It’s all a part of Honda Motor Co. Ltd’s thrust to ensure customer safety and worry-free ownership for years to come.
Contact your nearest HCPI dealer for more details.
