Honda Pilot Recall, Honda Odyssey Recall, Piston Failure Risk

Honda Pilot Recalled for Piston Failure Danger
Report Receipt Date: AUG 27, 2013 
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V382000 
Component(s): ENGINE 
Potential Number of Units Affected: 270

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