Honda Wants to Check Your Airbag. Please.

Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. is urging its customers to take part in the voluntary safety recall of selected City, Jazz, Civic, CR-V, Accord, and Pilot vehicles (partial list here, here, and here) sold in the country from 2001 to 2015 due to a suspected defect in the airbag inflator of the driver side airbag (click here if you want a good reason to have that airbag fixed).

Review: 2016 Honda Pilot EX-L 3.5 V6

At a glance, it’s hard to position the 2016 Honda Pilot. At P 3,380,000, the sole EX-L variant is around a Brio’s worth of pesos more than its most expensive rival, the Ford Explorer Sport. Yet, the Honda’s spec sheet looks a tad pedestrian compared to the Ford’s Trump Card worthy one: 284 versus 370 horsepower, 353 versus 475 Nm of torque. It’s looking very much like a lopsided win for the Blue Oval until you spend some seat time in the Pilot. This isn’t Ulysses Ang versus Michael Phelps in the swimming pool; this is more like Neil deGrasse Tyson going against 50 Cent in a game of Jeopardy. And in this case, the Pilot’s not playing the role of gangsta-rapper.

All-New 2016 Honda Pilot: This is It

The Pilot, Honda’s mid-sized three-row crossover, has certainly been long in the tooth. Thankfully, it’s been given a top-down change up with the all-new model that just debuted at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show. The all-new Pilot promises to continue where the old model left off. It will be more modern, refined, and confidently capable than ever while unfortunately, looking every bit like a CR-V on steroids. Styling issues aside, it certain looks to be the next preferred soccer mom transport out there.

Honda Spruces Up Odyssey and Pilot with Rear Entertainment System (and Huge Discounts)

With great space comes great comfort—as genuine 8-seaters, few can ever match the refinement of the Honda Odyssey MPV and Pilot mid-sized crossover. And now, just in time for the kid’s summer vacation, Honda Cars Philippines is now throwing in a rear entertainment system for free. The catch is, you’ve got to buy your Odyssey or Pilot before March 31.

Both the Odyssey and Pilot is now kitted free with a rear entertainment system that includes a 10-inch roof-mounted DVD entertainment monitor. The system also has AV inputs and comes with wireless earphones and a remote control. Along with the rear entertainment system, both models get spiffy genuine accessories. The Odyssey now gets standard splash guards while the Pilot gets running boards for easier ingress/egress. And to top it all off, they’re now available at a substantial discount: P 250,000 off the Odyssey and P 100,000 off the Pilot.

So, if you are in the market for an 8-seater MPV or crossover and have been holding off, you’re in luck. This deal is available at all of Honda’s 31 dealerships nationwide.

Review: 2013 Honda Pilot

Photos by Ulysses Ang
So you’ve become a pretty successful guy. You’ve blown out a half-a-million peso hole in your wallet for a new IWC pilot’s watch after the renovations were done on your Forbes Park mansion. What’s next? Well, if you’ve got some P 2.6-million in loose change stashed somewhere, why don’t you reward yourself with a fancy new crossover. Mind you, it can’t simply be any ordinary crossover; it has to be adventurous, versatile, and different as you are. In other words, you’ve got to think outside the box, you’ve got to think Honda Pilot.

Honda Cars Philippines Announces Recall for Pilot, Odyssey

Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) announces a voluntary recall of vehicles subject for inspection of some 171 units of the Honda Pilot and Odyssey sold in the Philippines for the period of June 2012 to January 2013 that are due to potentially inappropriate installation of rivet in Driver’s Front Airbag.

Findings show that there are possibly some rivets which secure the driver’s front airbag cover and bracket that were inappropriately installed. As a result, the deployment characteristics of the affected airbags may change upon collision and driver protection performance may decrease.

Surprise! Honda Launching Pilot, Odyssey in Philippines

Honda Cars Philippines (HCPI) is adding 2 new additional cars to its local line-up. And while we all thought it was going to be more variants of the Civic, this is actually their big surprise: they're actually launching the all-new Pilot and Odyssey.

For those who remember, both the Odyssey and the Pilot aren't new to our market. However, we can't deny that they were sales duds appearing either too late (Pilot) or too expensive (Odyssey) for our market. However, that doesn't prevent Honda from trying once again.

Based on overeager sales agents, Honda is selling these two vehicles at close to P 3-million. P 2,700,000 for the Pilot and P 2,900,000 for the Odyssey. Though the launch is still a couple of days away, we were able to snag some of the specs for these two vehicles:
