Sorry that you had such a bad experience. For whatever reason, mine has been the exact opposite Honda has stood by us. We have taken or Pilot in a few time for items no longer covered under warranty and never paid a dime. Honda felt that these items should not have gone bad under normal use and replaced them free of charge.
Your case is somewhat different in that you had a major failure. Did you have an independent garage check it out to find the cause of the failure???

One reason why engine overheat because the oil is not properly circulating that will cause the problem. Possibly that you got defective oil pressure switch/sensor or oil pump. If your engine is overheating the problem is your thermostat and coolant temperature sensor.
