Extreme shaking in the steering wheel when I reach driving speeds of 68-70 mph. The entire engine appears to be shaking as well. I've heard that this is a common issue with Honda Pilot.

Random misfire on all 6 cylinders despite routine maintenance (coil pack replacement and new spark plugs), vehicle stability control light; I have only 112K miles on the car. These are persistent issues on vehicles Honda J-series engines, yet my year was not included in the recall and service, parts, and costs associated is not covered by the dealer while other years are. The misfire issues continue to reoccur. I had a certified mechanic look at the vehicle and now the vsa light comes on. I would like the car repaired by Honda and my warranty and powertrain warranty extended, as well, if this is a known issue that other vehicles were repaired by Honda. www.safetyresearch.net/blog/articles/Honda%E2%80%99S-revenge-against-Pilot-owner-who-sparked-recall gotaclassaction.com/Honda-named-in-class-action-over-defect-in-the-vehicle-stability-assist-system/

In 2009 I had a spark plug blow out of the housing and I lost pressure. Tried to change plugs to be able to drive to dealership. Car was towed to Honda and top manifold was replaced and I was charged $3500. Since these were the original oem plugs it was not time to change them. Honda was contacted and they offered to pay half. I have had nothing but problems with this car since. Car was maintained regularly and had reg oil changes. There have been many diagnostics performed and it would say that car was misfiring on all cylinders. I have had the pistons repaired elsewhere even though Honda said it was fixed. Three weeks ago my check engine light came on, then the vsa and warning triangle came on and I lost power. Took it and the diagnosis is as follows: Damaged lifter from low oil pressure, vtec solenoid replacement, corrected oil pressure issues, still getting bleed-back from one lifter. TS1145 variable camshaft timing solenoid, remove and replace variable valve timing solenoid. This cost $736. What has to be done to fix this recurring problem. I am on a small fixed income and you would think if you buy a $30,000 car new you should count on dependability. For heaven's sake, "it's a Honda".
