We are experiencing the same faulty rear license plate weld. Did you ever find a fix, other than paying the dealer to repair?

I ended up taking my case to Corporate because my dealer (Courtney Honda, Milford CT) did nothing for me. The Regional Parts and Service Manager came out, took a look at it, took photos and told me that Honda would be in touch. About 2 weeks later I got the call from Corporate telling me they won't do anything for me either, not a dime. I think this is a case of if your dealer doesn't offer to help out on it, then you're SOL. I ended up jury-rigging a solution - my brother-in-law works for a major defense contractor, and he got some industrial-grade velcro for me to try. So far it's working great.
This will be my last Honda though, I've had it with them.
#46 of 46 2007 Pilot FWD - "Check Fuel Cap" message
Mar 31, 2013 (5:32 pm)
For the last one month, I have been getting this message on my odometer: "Check Fuel Cap"
I have opened and closed the fuel cap 3 or 4 different times, filled the gas tank a few times, however the message still flashes on my odometer.
Does this mean I have to replace my fuel cap? Also, my vehicle is due for Safety inspection this month. Is this a safety issue and will I fail the Inspection?
