Summary of Complaint

I TOOK THIS SEAT APART TO FIX A WOBBLE. NOW I THINK THERE MIGHT BE A LARGER SAFETY CONCERN WITH THESE SEATS. PROBLEM: THE REAR HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT BAR ON THE DRIVER'S SEAT HAS YIELDED TO FAILURE ALONG A WELD. THIS BAR IS USED FOR SYNCHRONIZING THE SEAT HEIGHT ON THE REMOTE SIDE AND SENDING SIDE. SYMPTOM: THIS RESULTS IN THE REMOTE SIDE OF THE SEAT'S HEIGHT TO FLOAT, CAUSING A SMALL BUT SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF TWISTING OF ONE SIDE AS THE (DRIVER'S) SEAT ROCKS ON THE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT FEET. SAFETY: THE "TWISTING" ACTION IN A COLLISION COULD CAUSE UNEXPECTED FAILURE OF SEAT. SCOPE: IT SOUNDS LIKE OTHERS PEOPLE MAY HAVE THIS ISSUE: HTTPS://WWW.8THCIVIC.COM/THREADS/DRIVER-SEAT-BACK-SLIGHT-PLAY-ANY1-ELSE.258628/. P/N: 81526-SNA-A14 (I THINK) NOTE: "DATE IT HAPPENED" SET TO PURCHASE DATE. I DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS THE SORT OF THING Y'ALL DO, BUT WHEN I SAW THE FAILURE, I THOUGHT IT MAY HAVE SAFETY RAMIFICATIONS. HAD A HARD TIME UPLOADING IMAGES, SO ADDED SOME ADDITIONAL ONES HERE: HTTPS://IMGUR.COM/A/CBMHJMC

I STARTED MY VEHICLE UP AFTER WORK AND IT WAS IDLING ROUGH BUT THEN STABILIZED SO I PAYED IT NO MIND. SOON AS I MERGED ONTO THE HIGHWAY WHEN MY CHECK ENGINE LIGHT STARTED TO FLASH. I IMMEDIATELY LOSS POWER AND THE VEHICLE STARTED TO DECELERATE. I TURNED ON MY HAZARDS, PRESSED ON THE PEDAL TO ACCELERATE BUT THE VEHICLE WAS BOGGING AND WOULDN'T ACCELERATE PASS 50MPH. I SAFELY GOT OFF ON THE NEXT EXIT AND SHUT OFF THE VEHICLE. I TURNED THE VEHICLE BACK ON AND MADE IT HOME SAFELY. THIS IS THE SECOND TIME THIS HAPPENED. I CHANGED MULTIPLE PARTS ON THE VEHICLE SINCE THEN, YET IT CONTINUES TO HAPPEN. I TOOK THE VEHICLE TO THE DEALERSHIP AND THEY COULD NOT FIGURE IT OUT.

Summary of Complaint

MY CAR HAS A PAINT DEFECT THAT HONDA REFUSES TO FIX. THIS PEELING PAINT STARTED IN 2014, I BROUGHT THIS ISSUE TO THE ATTENTION OF THE DEALERSHIP, BUT WAS TOLD THERE WAS NOTHING THAT CAN BE DONE. I NOTIFIED HONDA AND THEY WANTED ME TO PAY OVER 3K TO GET THE CAR PAINTED. I HAVE PICTURES OF HUNDREDS OF HONDA'S WITH THE SAME PAINT ISSUES. THERE NEEDS TO BE AN INVESTIGATION AND HONDA NEEDS TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE

Summary of Complaint

AFTER NUMEROUS VISITS TO OCEAN HONDA OF BURLINGAME TO DISCUSS THAT THE CAR I PURCHASED WAS NEVER ACTUALLY COMPLETELY "PROPERLY CERTIFIED" AS WAS DISCUSSED; AND THE FACT THAT I BROUGHT IT IN NUMEROUS TIMES. - I HAVE HAD NO COOPERATION. PLEASE VERIFY WITH LISA MENDEZ WHO JUST VERIFIED TO SALES MGR VAN THAT THE CAR HAS BEEN PROBELEMATIC SINCE PURCHASE AND SHOULD BE TRADED OUT. I DO NOT FEEL AND HAVE NOT FELT I'M DRIVING A COMPLETELY SAFE OR DEPENDABLE CAR. MOST RECENT VISIT TO DISCUSS ISSUES WAS 09/06/19 AND I HAD BEEN THERE ALREADY 3 TIMES WITHIN THE PREVIOUS 2 WEEKS FOR CONTINUING ISSUES WITH LIGHTS COMING ON AFTER I HAD SERVICE AND AFTER I HAD ASKED IF THERE WAS ANYTHING NEEDED . I WAS TOLD I WAS ALL GOOD !!... NOW JUST SPENT $460 TO FIND OUT THAT I NEED $1700 WORK AND THERE ARE RECALLS I WASN'T NOTIFIED ABOUT. THERE IS PREVIOUS DOCUMENTED COMPLAINT I FILED ON THIS CAR A LONG WHILE BACK. I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO GET THEM TO TAKE IT BACK SINCE I GOT IT DUE TO ONE THING OR ANOTHER. JUST DOESN'T FEEL STABLE OR SECURE. THEY SHOULD TAKE IT BACK AND DEAL WITH IT THEMSELVES. INITIAL COMPLAINT LOGGED WAS DUE TO A REPLACED SEAL OF SOME SORT THAT THEY BROKE AND REPLACED AGAIN, I WAS DRIVING AND IT STARTED MAKING A BURNING SMELL. THEY REPLACED AGAIN, BUT STILL SEEMS NOT RIGHT AND ENGINE HAZARD LIGHTS COME ON -- AND THEY CLEAR THEM AND TELL ME ITS OK.... DOES NOT FEEL OK, AND WAS NOT OK. I AM NOT WAITING FOR AN ACCIDENT TO HAPPEN HOWEVER MY NUMEROUS VISITS AND PLEAS TO EXCHANGE AND TAKE BACK THE CAR HAVE GONE UPON DEAF EARS AND THEY (SALES) HAVE NOW BECOME RUDE. I FEEL LIKE DROPPING OFF THE CAR TO THEM AND GIVING THEM THE KEYS AND THEY CAN DEAL WITH IT HOWEVER I'M SO UPSET THAT I "MUST HAVE A CAR" SO I AM TRYING TO FIND A NEW CAR NOW AND HAVING NO LOCK SINCE MY CREDIT IS RUINED.

Summary of Complaint

AFTER DRIVING THE VEHICLE AND STOPPING TO PARK, WE SMELLED THE SCENT OF GASOLINE. BROUGHT THE CAR TO THE HONDA DEALERSHIP AND THEY FOUND A "FLAW" WHERE THE GAS NOZZEL/NECK CONNECTION (OR WELD) TO THE MAIN GAS TANK WAS SLOWLY LEAKING GAS. THE SERVICE PERSON AT THE HONDA DEALERSHIP HAD NEVER SEEN THAT KIND OF FLAW OR DEFECT BEFORE. IT WAS SUGGESTED THAT WE ORDER A NEW GAS TANK WITH THE GAS NOZZEL/NECK CONNECTOR. I'M THINKING THE WELD BETWEEN THE TWO PARTS MAY BE A WEAK LINK ON CARS SIMILAR TO OURS AND WANT TO REPORT IT.
