The 2016 Honda Pilot seems to have transmission problems. Owners report jerking when accelerating.  Honda has been attempting to redesign the transmission.  Yet, clients are reporting to the Auto Fraud Legal Center that the problem with the transmission seems to cause the transmission fluid to overheat. The overheating issue leads to a “judder” in the transmission. The car accelerates in a very jerky way, especially between 30 and 50 mph. This is a big safety issue if you are trying to pass someone.  We understand that Honda has published a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) that provides a software fix to try to keep the transmission fluid temperature within specification.  The problem is that the fix in the TSB doesn’t seem to fix the issue.

California’s lemon law is designed to protect consumers by requiring car companies to repurchase or replace vehicles that suffer from warranty defects that cannot be fixed in a reasonable number of attempts – sometimes as few as 2 repair attempts.  If you think your Honda Pilot may be a lemon, you may be entitled to get your money back and it won’t cost you anything as all your attorney’s fees and costs will be paid by the car manufacturer.
