Summary of Complaint

DURING NORMAL DRIVING, NO HARD BRAKING INVOLVED, THE PASSENGER SEATBELT CONSISTENTLY LOCKS UP - CAUSING MY PASSENGERS TO BE LOCKED IN PLACE. IT LOCKS IF A PASSENGER LEANS FORWARD TO REMOVE SOMETHING FROM THE DASH CUBBIES (WHICH ARE JUST OUTSIDE OF ARMS REACH BUT WELL WITHIN NORMAL RANGE REACH). IT LOCKS IF THE PASSENGER LEANS TO REACH BEHIND THE DRIVER'S SEAT. IT SEEMS AS IF THE BELT HAS BEEN DESIGNED TOO SHORT OR THE LOCKING MECHANISM OVERLY SENSITIVE. SHOULD A COLLISION HAPPEN WHILE LOCKED, THERE WOULD BE ABSOLUTELY NO GIVE AND COULD CAUSE THEM SIGNIFICANT HARM.

Summary of Complaint

RECALL ON THE VEHICLE IS FOR A FAULTY WIRING HARNESS FOR THE TRAILER HITCH. MY VEHICLE HAS A TRAILER HITCH AND WIRES INSIDE THE VEHICLE, BUT APPARENTLY THE HITCH ISN'T OEM, SO "IT DOESN'T MATTER" ACCORDING TO NELSON HONDA AT 2500 GREENSBORO ROAD, MARTINSVILLE, VA 24112. HONDA WOULDN'T HAVE INCLUDED THE VIN UNLESS IT HAD THE PART THAT NEEDS FIXING, BUT THE DEALER REFUSED BECAUSE IT DIDN'T MATTER FOR MY CAR. IF IT DOESN'T MATTER, THE RECALL SHOULD BE CLEARED FROM MY VIN, BUT I SUSPECT THEY JUST DON'T WANT TO DO THE WORK SINCE THE HITCH ISN'T OEM BUT THE WIRING STILL IS. THEY TOLD ME THAT THE HITCH WASN'T THERE'S SO IT WOULDN'T MATTER, BUT IT'S THE LIGHTS/POWER CONNECTOR. THE ONLY REASON I DIDN'T PURSUE THIS ORIGINALLY IS BECAUSE I'M NOT TOWING ANYTHING, HOWEVER I EXPECT THIS TO CHANGE IN THE FUTURE AND I'M HAVING OTHER PROBLEMS WITH THE DEALERSHIP IN NOT VERIFYING PARTS I PURCHASE SEPARATELY BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO USE (VOIDING RETURN POLICY) SO THAT I HAVE TO BUY THEIR PARTS INSTEAD.

Summary of Complaint

I WAS JUST DRIVING MY 2007 HONDA ELEMENT TO WORK IN THE NORTH END OF SEATTLE, AND ALL OF THE SUDDEN MY VEHICLE STARTED JERKING AND THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, VSA AND STEERING LIGHT CAME ON THE "TRIANGLE WITH A LIGHTNING BOLT IN IT" IT STARTED RUNNING ROUGH. WHEN I WOULD STEP ON THE GAS IT WOULD CAUSE THE CAR TO JERK AND THE SPEEDOMETER WOULD IDLE UP AND DOWN. IT WAS VERY INTENSE. I WOULD LIFT OFF THE GAS PATEL AND TRY TO LET IT SMOOTHIN OUT. IT DEFINITELY IS A SAFETY ISSUE. I LOOKED ONLINE AND SAW A RECALL ON THE 2007 AND 2008 HONDA ELEMENT, OVER 68,000 OF THEM. I WENT TO HONDA OF SEATTLE AND THEY TOLD ME THERE WASN'T A RECALL, I THEN TOLD HIM TO LOOK ONLINE AND HE TRIED TO TELL ME THAT MY CAR WASN'T COVERED. HE STARTED TO QUOTE SOME NUMBERS OF WHAT THE DIAGNOSTIC WOULD COST AND THEN THEY WOULD GO FROM THERE. I THEN TOLD THEM TO RETURN MY VEHICLE AND BROUGHT IT TO MY MECHANIC. THE TOTAL COST TO FIX WHAT HONDA WOULDN'T EVEN THOUGH IT IS A RECALL IS $450.00. THIS IS UNFAIR AND HONDA NEEDS TO MAKE THIS RIGHT!

Summary of Complaint

I RECEIVED A LETTER FROM HONDA STATING THAT MY INSTRUMENT PANEL MAY NEED TO BE REPLACED. I CONTACTED RENNER HONDA, COLUMBUS, INDIANA WHERE I PURCHASED MY ELEMENT SC NEW AND TOLD THEM THAT MY GAUGES WERE FALLING OUT. THEY SAID THEY WOULD ORDER THE PANEL AND REPLACE IT. I NEVER HEARD FROM THEM AGAIN AND THE TIME FOR REPLACEMENT CLOSED. NEXT, I RECEIVED THE BRAKE RECALL NOTICE AND DECIDED TO TRY CLARKSVILLE, IN NEIL HUFFMAN HONDA. THEY SAID THEY ONLY DID RECALLS DURING THE WEEK AND IF I NEEDED A LOANER VEHICLE TO GET BACK TO WORK...THAT IT WOULD BE $100/DAY AND THEY WOULD NEED MY VEHICLE 2-3 DAYS. I SAID SO YOU ARE CHARGING ME FOR MY INCONVENIENCE AND THEY SAID THAT'S OUR POLICY. SO, I LET THAT RECALL GO. HERE IT IS 2018, MY GAUGES DO NOT WORK AT ALL AND IT LOOKS LIKE I'M DOING 55 SITTING STILL. MY GAS GAUGE IS BROKE AS WELL, MY HEADLIGHTS ARE DIM AND MY FANS BOTH QUIT WORKING, PART OF THE TOP PANEL HAS FLOWN OFF--AND MY VISOR IS BROKE. BUT, I DID FINALLY GET HONDA WORLD, LOUISVILLE, KY TO REPLACE THE AIRBAGS AND THE BRAKE RECALL. BUT, NO DICE ON THE INSTRUMENT PANEL. I THINK THAT IS WRONG CONSIDERING ALL THE RECALLS ON THIS BY HONDA. THEY WILL NOT BUDGE ON PRICE YET THERE HAVE BEEN OVER 11 RECALLS ON THIS VEHICLE AND NOW I AM STUCK PAYING FOR THE GAUGES, NOT TO MENTION IF THE BRAKES HAD WENT OUT YEARS AGO...I COULD HAVE BEEN INJURED OVER CLARKSVILLE NEIL HUFFMAN TRYING TO CHARGE ME FOR A RENTAL CAR! THANKS TO HONDA WORLD, BUT I WILL NOT RECOMMEND A HONDA TO ANYONE ELSE CONSIDERING ALL THE COMPLAINTS OVER THE INSTRUMENT PANEL, VISORS, LIGHTS, ETC THAT I AM READING ON HERE. SHAME ON YOU HONDA!

Summary of Complaint

WHILE THE VEHICLE MOVING SLOWLY, SUDDENLY THE ABS, VSA (VEHICLE STABILITY ASSIST) AND TRACTION CONTROL LIGHTS ALL CAME ON AT THE SAME TIME AND STAYED ON. A HONDA DEALERSHIP LATER DIAGNOSED THE ISSUE AS A FAULTY VSA MODULATOR, AN EXPENSIVE PART WHICH CONTROLS THE ABS AND TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEMS. THE FAULT OUR VEHICLE EXPERIENCED PREVENTS ALL THESE SYSTEMS FROM FUNCTIONING. I CONTACTED OTHER HONDA ELEMENT OWNERS AND FOUND SEVERAL WHO HAD THE EXACT SAME ISSUE WITH 2007 AND 2008 ELEMENTS - ALL THREE LIGHTS ILLUMINATED WITH NO APPARENT CAUSE AND THEN DEALER DIAGNOSIS TURNED UP A FAULTY VSA MODULATOR. IN SEVERAL CASES, THESE PEOPLE CONTACTED HONDA OF AMERICA AND HONDA OFFERED TO PAY FOR THE VSA MODULATOR REPLACEMENT (EVEN OUTSIDE OF WARRANTY), PRESUMABLY DUE TO THE SAFETY ISSUE OF HAVING THIS CRITICAL PART FAIL THAT DISABLES THE ABS AND VEHICLE STABILITY SYSTEMS. I CONTACTED HONDA OF AMERICA AND THEY WOULD NOT REPLACE PROVIDE ASSISTANCE IN THE REPLACEMENT OF THE PART ON MY VEHICLE. BEFORE THIS INCIDENT, I HAD NOT EXPERIENCED ANY ISSUES WITH THE VSA MODULATOR AND HAD VERY RARELY BEEN IN A LOW-TRACTION ENVIRONMENT WHERE EITHER THE VSA OR ABS SYSTEMS WOULD ENGAGE. INTERESTINGLY, A FEW MONTHS BEFORE THIS INCIDENT A HONDA DEALERSHIP PERFORMED A VSA MODULATOR-RELATED RECALL TO REMOVE AIR THAT COULD ACCUMULATE IN THE MODULATOR (RECALL #10V098000); THE DEALERSHIP INSISTED THAT WORK AND THIS FAILURE WERE UNRELATED. THIS IS A MAJOR SAFETY ISSUE FOR BRAKING AND VEHICLE STABILITY ON A SEALED PART WITH OTHER OPEN RECALLS AGAINST IT. THIS PART SHOULD LAST THE LIFE OF THE VEHICLE, AND YET IT IS FAILING SPONTANEOUSLY WITHOUT ANY EXTERNAL MECHANISM OF FAILURE. HONDA SHOULD REPLACE FAULTY VSA MODULATORS AT NO CHARGE.

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING ON THE INTERSTATE THE SPEEDOMETER NEEDLE, AND THE TACHOMETER NEEDLE FELL OFF OF THEIR GAUGES. IN ADDITION THE GAS GAUGE NOW NO LONGER PROPERLY REGISTERS THE AMOUNT OF FUEL IN THE TANK SO I AM LEFT TO ESTIMATE. ALL THREE POSE A SAFETY RISK TO ME AS A DRIVER INCREASING THE POSSIBILITY OF MY SPEEDING INADVERTENTLY, RUNNING OUT OF GAS IN ISOLATED LOCATIONS, OR DRIVING THE CAR AT HIGH RPM. ALL 3 ITEMS OCCURRED WITH NO OTHER UNUSUAL INCIDENT IN THE CAR, NO BUMP, NO ACCIDENT OR ANY OTHER EVENT THAT ONE WOULD EXPECT IS REQUIRED TO DISLODGE A NEEDLE FROM ITS GAUGE.

Summary of Complaint

IN 2009, I WAS DRIVING MY 2007 HONDA ELEMENT WHILE MERGING ONTO A HIGHWAY. I WAS TRAVELING EAST IN THE MORNING, WHERE I NEEDED TO PUT DOWN THE DRIVER'S SIDE VISOR. IT WAS EXTREMELY STIFF AND DIFFICULT TO MOVE. I HAD NEVER NEEDED TO PUT IT DOWN BEFORE. I MOVED IT AS GENTLY AS I COULD, BUT THE MANUFACTURER MADE IT SO STIFF IT SNAPPED IN HALF. AFTER THIS INCIDENT, IT JUST HUNG DOWN. I TRIED SOME VELCRO, BUT THAT DIDN'T FIX IT. THE VISOR STILL IS IN THE DOWN POSITION. IF IT'S DOWN AGAINST THE WINDSHIELD, I OFTEN CAN'T SEE. WHEN IT'S DOWN AGAINST THE DRIVER'S WINDOW, I CAN'T SEE. THIS IS A NIGHTMARE WHEN TRYING TO SEE ANYTHING. THE ELEMENT HAS SEVERAL BLIND SPOTS AND THIS ADDS TO IT! HONDA WANTS TOO MUCH MONEY FOR A REPAIR THAT THEY SHOULD COVER UNDER A RECALL. ON A WEBSITE CALLED ELEMENTOWNERSCLUB.COM, SEVERAL PEOPLE HAVE COMPLAINED ABOUT THIS PROBLEM. WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE FOR HONDA TO ISSUE A RECALL, AN ACCIDENT OR WORSE?
