2018 Pilot recieves acceptable for passenger-side small impact test    (Score: 1, Normal) 06-12-2018 14:37

Structure
The passenger space was maintained well, with maximum intrusion of the lower interior of 11 cm at the rightmost portion of the toepan. Maximum upper interior intrusion measured 6 cm at the dashboard.

Passenger injury measures
A high head acceleration occurred when the dummy's head hit the dashboard, indicating that head injuries would be possible in a crash of this severity. Injuries to the right lower leg would also be possible.

Passenger restraints and dummy kinematics
The dummy’s head barely contacted the frontal airbag before sliding off the right side, allowing the head to move far enough forward to hit the dashboard. The side curtain airbag deployed and has sufficient forward coverage to protect the head from contact with side structure and outside objects. The side torso airbag also deployed.

Seems like these test hit folks without warning. Really weird that a vehicle would do ok on the drivers side and not the passenger. Also not sure what is going on with all the headlight issues. Maybe strap some KC lights to the front of these cars and that will fix it! I have never had issues with any Honda/Acura headlights so not sure what the expectation is.

I think part of the issue is the headlights will get dinged if they create too much glare for oncoming drivers. Like you, I've not had any issues with the lights on my cars.
