Summary of Complaint

I JUST BOUGHT THIS CAR 7 MONTH AGO AND REPLACED BRAKES, ROTORS, A TIRE, REPAIRED A BROKEN LUGNUT, AND NOW THE ENGINE HAS OVERHEATED AND BLOWN AND IS EVIDENTLY NOT COVERED UNDER THE PREVIOUS WARRANTY BECAUSE IT IS PAST EXPIRATION (YEAR AND MILEAGE). PUTTING A USED ENGINE INTO THE VEHICLE IS NOT GOING TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM, AND MY DEALERSHIP IS NOT WILLING TO PUT A NEW ONE IN. WHEN IT BEGAN OVERHEATING, I HAD JUST PULLED ONTO THE HIGHWAY (AVERAGE SPEED OF ABOUT 50) AND NOTICED THAT MY HEAT WASN'T WORKING (WHICH WAS WEIRD SINCE I HAD REPLACED THE THERMOSTAT ALREADY A FEW WEEKS PRIOR) AND THEN THE CAR READ AS HOT AS POSSIBLE. WHEN I SAFELY PULLED OVER, THERE WAS SMOKE COMING FROM UNDER THE HOOD AND IT WAS TOWED TO A RELIABLE MECHANIC WHO SAID IT WAS THE COOLANT LEAKING FROM THE ENGINE BLOCK, BUT WAS NOT PART OF THE WARRANTY ANYMORE.

Summary of Complaint

HONDA EXTENDED A WARRANTY FOR 2006-2008 CIVICS TO REPLACE DEFECTIVE ENGINE BLOCKS. I HAVE A 2008 CIVIC THAT HAS VERY LOW MILEAGE SO I WAS UNAWARE OF THIS ISSUE UNTIL NOW. THEY WILL NOT HONOR THEIR REPLACEMENT WARRANTY, NOR DID THE DEALERSHIP SAY ANYTHING TO ME WHEN I HAD MY CAR SERVICED THERE SEVERAL TIMES A YEAR SINCE 2015. WHY WOULD THEY NOT SAY SOMETHING? NOW I'M LEFT WITH A CAR THAT IS USELESS AND I BET THE DEALERSHIP I HAVE PURCHASED MORE THAN 5 CARS FROM WILL TAKE IT AS A TRADE IN. IT WAS IN MOTION PARKED TO GO IN THE STORE AND CAME OUT TO ALL OF MY ANTIFREEZE ON THE PAVEMENT. HAD TO LIMP IT SOME SO IT WOULDN'T CAUSE MORE DAMAGE.

Summary of Complaint

GOOD AFTERNOON, MY 2008 CIVIC (137,500 MILES) OVERHEATED WHILE ON HIGHWAY & AFTER PULLING OVER & CHECKING COOLANT SPILL TANK SAW IT WAS EMPTY. NEXT DAY REFILLED RADIATOR WITH COOLANT & AFTER STARTING CAR NOTICED COOLANT LEAKING ON GROUND AT FRONT RIGHT SIDE OF ENGINE. I COULD NOT LOCATE LEAK. DROVE TO NEAREST HONDA SERVICE DEPARTMENT & AT SERVICE (VIA PRESSURE TEST OF ENGINE COOLING SYSTEM) A CRACK IN ENGINE BLOCK BETWEEN CYL. 1 & 2 WAS LOCATED. I WAS TOLD BY SERVICE TECH THAT HONDA IS AWARE OF ENGINE BLOCK CRACK/ DEFECT & INSTEAD OF ISSUING A SERVICE RECALL WHAT THEY DID WAS A WARRANTY EXTENSION OF 10 YEARS. HOWEVER, THAT WARRANTY EXPIRED 2 YEARS AGO. SERVICE MANAGER CALLED AMERICAN HONDA CORP. FOR GOODWILL ASSISTANCE TO TRY & HELP WITH REPAIRS BUT AMERICAN HONDA REJECTED/ DECLINED THE REQUEST & HAS LEFT ME WITHOUT A VEHICLE. I AM NOT ABLE TO PAY FOR A NEW ENGINE. I HAVE NO CAR FOR WORK, FOR MY MOM/ DAD DOCTOR VISITS/ FOR SUPERMARKET/ FOR LIFE. COSTS OF REPAIR ARE ARE ABOVE $5,000. I WAS THE 2ND OWNER OF MY 2008 CIVIC & WAS NOT NOTIFIED BY HONDA OF THE WARRANTY EXTENSION OR OF A POSSIBLE RECALL NOTIFICATION OF THIS SAFETY ISSUE. I RECEIVED RECALL FOR THE AIR BAG (TEKATA), BUT DID NOT RECEIVE ANYTHING FOR A CRACKED ENGINE BLOCK. WHY IS THAT? HOW IS AMERICAN HONDA CORP. ALLOWED TO DO A "WARRANTY EXTENSION" TO RESOLVE A MAJOR SAFETY PROBLEM ONLY WHEN THE ENGINE CRACKS & ONLY WHEN YOU NOTICE YOU HAVE A PROBLEM. WITHOUT ANY PRIOR WARNING, THESE VEHICLES CAN HAVE AN ENGINE FAILURE/ STALL WHILE DRIVING AT HIGHER SPEEDS, INCREASING THE RISK OF CRASH. AS A LIFELONG HONDA OWNER (20 YEARS '97 ACCORD AND '08 CIVIC) I AM BEYOND DISAPPOINTED. DISAPPOINTED NOT BECAUSE OF WHAT HONDA LEGAL DEPARTMENT DID VIA "LEGAL LOOP HOLES," NO. I'M DISAPPOINTED I WILL NEVER OWN OR DRIVE A HONDA AGAIN. GOOD DAY.

Summary of Complaint

VEHICLE DIAGNOSED BY HONDA DEALERSHIP SERVICE DEPT WITH A CRACKED ENGINE BLOCK. DEALERSHIP REFERRED ME TO HONDA CORPORATION REGARDING WARRANTY EXTENSION FOR MANUFACTURING DEFECT ON ENGINE BLOCK. HONDA CORP DENIED ME ASSISTANCE BECAUSE VEHICLE AGE IS PAST THEIR 10 YEAR EXTENSION PERIOD. I'M SECOND OWNER ON THIS VEHICLE AND DIDN'T REALIZE THERE WAS A POTENTIAL ENGINE MANUFACTURING DEFECT WHEN I BOUGHT THE CAR (FIRST OWNER DID NOT DISCLOSE THIS). ESTIMATED KBB VALUE WAS $4500-5000 WHICH NOW IS A NEAR TOTAL LOSS AND SALVAGE VALUE. COST FOR REPAIR IS EQUAL OR HIGHER THAN RETAIL VALUE. VEHICLE HAS WELL DOCUMENTED SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE RECORD. SEEMS UNFAIR FOR THIS MANUFACTURING DEFECT TO PLACE ALL THE COST ON THE OWNER WHEN THERE IS NO OWNER CAUSE FOR THIS PROBLEM.
