Summary of Complaint

I have replaced my catalyst converter and my check engine light and parking brake light and the safety key light has turned on. The warranty on my vehicle was over the miles before they sent me the notice on the push start button key but I had issue with this before it had passed the warranty miles. The notice was sent to late after I went over. The other lights I had a auto parts hook up the machine and its indicating the engine control module (ECM) detects a catalytic converter problem, it might record DTC P0420, defined as “Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold.” I am so fed up with this and bought my Honda new and never had issues with it until I bought this Honda HRV model. I love my care but if it wasn't for this.

Summary of Complaint

The VSA modulator went out in the car making all lights on the dashboard flash and light up, and crashed the computer system for the car. The VSA modulator was not working due to an internal failure is all I was told. My VSA modulator went out while I was in Drive with the brake applied in the drive thru for food. This prevented the vehicle from being driven safely due to not knowing what was lit up on the dashboard, caused visual confusion and distraction while driving, and would cause a panic to a driver if the VSA modulator went out on them while they were driving. Plus the displays crashed, so there was no way or knowing your speed. The VSA modulator was replaced for nearly $1,500 from the Honda Dealership and there were no prior errors on this vehicle or part.

Summary of Complaint

2016 HONDA HR-V 117,000 MILES. I WAS ON MY WAY TO WORK WHEN SUDDENLY I WENT TO ACCELERATE FROM A STOP LIGHT AND THE CAR JUST REVVED AS IF IT WERE IN NEUTRAL, AND LOTS OF SERVICE LIGHTS TURNED ON THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER. I WAS LEFT IN THE MIDDLE OF AN INTERSECTION IN THE DARK, TRYING TO PUSH MY CAR TO THE SHOULDER. VERY DANGEROUS FOR THE CAR TO JUST STOP WORKING LIKE THAT WITH NO SIGNS. ONCE I GOT THE CAR HOME, I DRAINED THE CVT TRANSMISSION FLUID AND NOTICED A LOT OF METAL ON THE DRAIN PLUG MAGNET. I ALSO NOTICED THE TRANSMISSION FILL PLUG WAS ALSO POPPED OUT ( WHICH HONDA IS AWARE OF, JUST FAILS TO INFORM CUSTOMER'S ) HONDA CUSTOMER SERVICE HAS BEEN VERY HARD TO FIND SOMEONE TO TALK TOO. VERY DISAPPOINTED IN QUALITY OF PARTS COMING FROM A SUPPOSED REPUTABLE/RELIABLE BRAND.

Summary of Complaint

SO I BOUGHT MY HONDA HRV 2016 ABOUT 3 WEEKS AGO AND IT SEEMS AND I JUST STARTED FEELING TODAY THAT EVERY TIME I STOP AT A STOP LIGHT AND I THEN PROCEED TO ACCELERATE, THE ENGINE STARTS VIBRATING AT AROUND 1,500 RPM. IM PRETTY SURE THIS IS NOT NORMAL AS I HAVE OWNED 3 VEHICLES AND NONE HAVE ACTED LIKE THIS. IVE ALSO NOTICED THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE REPORTED THESE TRANSMISSION ISSUES I FEEL THAT THIS IS REALLY DANGEROUS AND SHOULD BE RECALLED BY HONDA TO AVOID ACCIDENTS OR ANYTHING WORSE FROM HAPPENING. IM VERY DISAPPOINTED IN HOW SUCH A GREAT COMPANY LIKE HONDA DOESNT HANDLE SOMETHING SO SERIOUS LIKE THESE TRANSMISSION ISSUES.

Summary of Complaint

I TOOK IT IN FOR THE 100,000 MILE CHECK UP AND WHEN THEY STARTED TO CHANGE THE FLUID IN THE TRANSMISSION THEY STOPPED BECAUSE THERE WAS LARGE CHUNKS OF METAL COMING OUT. I WAS TOLD THIS DOES NOT LOOK LIKE NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR BUT A PRODUCT FATIGUE. I CALLED THE HONDA DEALERSHIP THAT I BOUGHT IT FROM AND HONDA CUSTOMERS SERVICE. BOTH THE DEALERSHIP AND HONDA WOULD NOT HELP ME AT ALL. I WAS TOLD THAT THERE HAD BEEN NO PROBLEMS WITH THAT MODEL AND THEY COULD NOT HELP. AFTER LOOKING ONLINE I FOUND QUITE A NUMBER OF COMPLAINTS ABOUT ISSUES WITH THE 2016 HONDA HRV SOME OF WHICH WERE TRANSMISSION. MINE IS THE TRANSFER CASE WHICH IS CONNECTED TO THE TRANSMISSION SO BOTH NEED TO BE REPLACE. THIS WAS MY FIRST HONDA THAT I'VE EVER BOUGHT. MY WIFE WANTED ONE BECAUSE OF THEIR DEPENDABILITY. I WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER CAR FROM A COMPANY THAT DOES NOT STANDBY THEIR PRODUCT. THE TRANSMISSION FLUID WAS CHANGED AT 53,000 MILES. I TALKED TWO TRANSMISSION PLACES AND BOTH GAVE ME THE SAME ANSWER. YOU CANNOT WORK ON THESE TRANSMISSIONS YOU EITHER HAVE TO BUY A USED ONE OR PURCHASE A NEW ONE. ESTIMATED COST FOR A NEW TRANSMISSION AND TRANSFER CASE ABOUT $8600.

Summary of Complaint

TOTAL TRANSMISSION FAILURE AT 66,559 MILES. I HEARD A NOISE WHEN ACCELERATING ON THE LAST PART OF A TRIP FROM FL TO WI. A FEW DAYS AFTER ARRIVING HOME IN WI, I WAS PULLING OUT OF A PARKING LOT WHEN I SUDDENLY HAD NO DRIVE CAPABILITY. THE ENGINE ONLY REVVED AS IF IT WAS IN NEUTRAL. AFTER A TOW TO THE HONDA DEALERSHIP, I WAS TOLD THE TRANSMISSION COMPLETELY FAILED AND HAD TO BE REPLACED AT MY COST. I AM FILING THIS COMPLAINT BECAUSE AFTER RESEARCHING THIS ISSUE, IT APPEARS TO BE A PROBLEM WITH THE 2016 HR-V. I'M ONLY GLAD IT FAILED IN A PARKING LOT NEAR HOME INSTEAD OF ON THE HIGHWAY WHERE IT MAY HAVE CAUSED AN ACCIDENT OR FAR FROM HOME WHERE I WOULD HAVE BEEN STRANDED.

IN MONTH LEADING UP TO TRANSMISSION FAILURE NOTICED CAR MY HONDA HRV 2016 SOUNDED DIFFERENT ON ACCELERATION. WAS TAKEN TO HONDA DEALER WHERE IT WAS PURCHASED AND WAS TOLD IT WAS ONE OF THE BELT PULLEYS. DEALERSHIP REPLACED IT AND I HAD TO PAY FOR IT. COST APPROXIMATELY $500. THE ABNORMAL SOUND CONTINUED. WAS RETURNED TO DEALERSHIP AND WAS TOLD THAT I POSSIBLY HAD MICE OR RATS CAUSING THE PROBLEM AND ASKED ME IF I LIVED IN THE COUNTRY OR IN TOWN. OR IF I PARKED CAR IN GARAGE OR OUTSIDE. ABOUT MONTH LATER WAS ON INTERSTATE AND HAD ALL WARNING AND CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS COME ON AT ONCE AND CAR WAS UNABLE TO TRANSMIT POWER FROM ENGINE TO DRIVE TRAIN. HAD TO PULL OVER FROM INTERSTATE TRAFFIC AND CALL TOW TRUCK. IT WAS TOWED TO DEALER AND THEY STATED THERE WAS METAL FRAGMENTS IN THE TRANSMISSION, AND IT WOULD HAVE TO BE REPAIRED AT MY EXPENSE. PROBLEM STARTED AND ABOUT 90000 MILES AND TRANSMISSION FAILED AT 120000. TOTAL REPAIRS INCLUDING WRONGLY REPLACED BELT PULLY WERE OVER $6500.

A HEATED SEAT MALFUNCTION BURNED A HOLE IN MY PANTS AND MELTED MY DRIVER'S LICENSE. IT LIKELY WOULD HAVE BURNED MY SKIN IF MY WALLET HAD NOT BEEN THERE. WHILE DRIVING HOME FROM A HIKE, IN THE DRIVER'S SEAT, I USED THE HEATED SEAT ON THE HIGH SETTING. IT WAS A SUNNY DAY AND I AND MY CLOTHES WERE DRY. AS WE GOT CLOSE TO HOME, AFTER MAYBE 15-20 MINUTES OF USAGE, IT SUDDENLY FELT UNCOMFORTABLY HOT. I TURNED OFF THE HEATED SEAT. I DIDN'T NOTICE THE DAMAGE UNTIL LATER THAT NIGHT, WHEN I BIKED TO A NEARBY GROCERY STORE AND PULLED OUT MY WALLET TO PAY FOR GROCERIES. I NOTICED THAT MY DRIVER'S LICENSE (THE TOP OF WHICH PROTRUDES OUT FROM MY WALLET) HAD SUFFERED SIGNIFICANT HEAT DAMAGE, WITH A PEA-SIZED BROWN SPOT AND DISTORTIONS OF THE MATERIAL AROUND IT. THE DRIVER'S LICENSE WAS LIGHTLY STUCK TO THE CARD BEHIND IT (MY HEALTH INSURANCE ID CARD), WHICH ALSO SUFFERED SLIGHT DISTORTIONS IN THE MATERIAL BUT NO BROWN SPOT. I THEN NOTICED THE MATCHING DIME-SIZED HOLE BURNED IN MY PANTS' RIGHT REAR POCKET, WHERE I KEEP THE WALLET. THE EDGES OF THIS HOLE WERE SINGED. I SUSPECTED THE HEATED SEAT SINCE IT WAS THE ONLY HEAT SOURCE I HAD BEEN AROUND. UPON RETURNING HOME I INSPECTED IT AND FOUND A MATCHING DIME-SIZED HOLE BURNED THROUGH THE CUSHIONING OF THE SEAT WHERE MY RIGHT REAR POCKET WOULD BE, WITH AN EXPOSED HEATING ELEMENT NOW VISIBLE THROUGH THE HOLE.

THE CAR COMPLETELY STOPPED, BUT THE LIGHTS AND ELECTRONICS KEPT FLASHING. THE SYSTEMS ON THE ELECTRONIC PANEL KEPT FLASHING AND THE CAR WILL NOT START. ONE WEEK AGO, I NOTICED WHEN I STARTED THE CAR, THE CAR SHOOK AND THE ENGINE STRUGGLED TO START, THE LIGHTS ON THE ELECTRONIC PANEL FLASHED BUT THEY STOPPED AND I WAS ABLE TO DRIVE IT. THIS IS THE THIRD TIME THAT I NOTICED THE FLASHING LIGHTS, IN ADDITION, I NOTICED FOR A FEW MONTHS THAT DURING DRIVING, THE STEERING WHEEL HAS BECOME MORE DIFFICULT TO TURN WHEN I WAS MAKING TURNS. IT WAS AS IF THE CAR HAD NO WOWED STEERING CAPABILITIES AND IT CONTINUED UP TO THIS POINT. ALSO, I NOTICED THAT THE CAR DROVE AS IF IT WAS LOSING ITS BRAKES. I'M SORELY DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS VEHICLE BECAUSE IT IS FAIRLY NEW WITH LESS THAN 8200 MILES ON IT. I BOUGHT IT FOR MY RETIREMENT AND NOW I THINK THAT IT WILL BECOME THE EARLY DEATH OF ME. I NOTICED THAT THERE WERE RECALLS ON THIS VEHICLE FOR THESE VERY ISSUES AND I NEED MY CAR FIXED ASAP.

Summary of Complaint

I WAS DRIVING A LONG 80 MILES FROM MY HOME WITH MY TWO CHILDREN, THANKFULLY I HAD JUST EXITED A CONGESTED MAJOR HIGHWAY SOUTH OF DC. WITH ZERO WARNING I LOST ALL POWER, LIGHTS ON DASH WERE ON AND FLASHING AND COULD BARELY GET FROM THE LEFT LANE TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD ABOUT 5 MILES FROM ANY STATION AS THERE WAS ONLY COMMUTER PARKING LOTS AND SAND DUNES AND A DISTANT NEIGHBORHOOD. I HAD TO WAIT FOR A TOW TRUCK AS IT GOT DARK, LUCKILY I WAS ABLE TO HAVE IT TOWED HOME. I HAD A MECHANIC I TRUST COME TAKE A LOOK AND HE DETERMINED IT WAS THE ALTERNATOR AND THE BATTERY WAS LEAKING ACID. HE REPLACED IT AND TOOK IT FOR A DRIVE AND SHORTLY IT BEGAN TO FLASH LIGHTS AND SHOW NEUTRAL AND WAS IN WHAT HE CALLED, LIMP MODE. I HAD IT TOWED TO HONDA WHERE THEY RAN THE DIAGNOSIS, I WAS THEN TOLD THEY WOULD NEED TO DRAIN THE TRANSMISSION FLUID AND THERE THEY FOUND CHUNKS OF METAL AND TOLD ME MY TRANSMISSION WAS SHOT. MY VEHICLE HAD 77,000 MILES ON IT. I WAS TOLD MAYBE THE PREVIOUS OWNER DID NOT TAKE CARE OF IT, BUT THE TRUTH LIES ON THIS SITE WHERE I HAVE READ NOW NUMEROUS ACCOUNTS OF THE SAME EXACT CHAIN OF EVENTS. I WAS TOLD I WILL NEED TO REPLACE IT FOR $6200 FROM HONDA, I THEN CONTIMPLATED A NEW PURCHASE AS I AM ALREADY UPSIDE DOWN ON MY CAR LOAN. THIS IS A DISPICABLE THING FOR HONDA TO DO TO IT'S LOYAL CUSTOMERS AND I DECLINED A NEW CAR AND HAVE TOLD THE MANAGER I WILL NO LONGER DO BUSINESS WITH HONDA ESPECIALLY NOW SEEING THIS ISSUE HAS BEEN REPORTED NUMEROUS TIMES TO HONDA.

Summary of Complaint

THE WAY WE START OUR ENGINE IS USING A FOB KEY DEVICE. THE PROBLEM WE HAVE IS THAT SOMETIMES WE HAVE TO PRESS THE START/IGNITION BUTTON A FEW TIMES BEFORE THE VEHICLE TURNS OFF AND ON. MOST OF THE TIME WE HAVE TO KEEP PRESSING THE START/IGNITION BUTTON NUMEROUS TIMES (MORE THAN 10 TIMES) TO TURN IT OFF /ON. WE TOOK IT TO A HONDA DEALER AND WE WERE TOLD THEY COULD NOT FIX IT. THE SAID THE PART NEEDED TO FIX THE PROBLEM WAS NOT CURRENTLY BEING MANUFACTURED. I ASKED IF I COULD PAY FOR IT NOW SO THAT THEY COULD NOTIFY ME WHEN THE PART WAS AVAILABLE, THEY SAID THEY CAN'T DO THAT BECAUSE THEY DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH THE PART WOULD BE OR WHEN IT WILL BE AVAILABLE/MANUFACTURED. I ASKED HOW I COULD FIND OUT WHEN THE PART IS AVAILABLE? THEY SUGGESTED I CALL BACK ONCE A WEEK TO SEE IF THE PART IS AVAILABLE. WE ARE STILL MAKING PAYMENTS ON THIS CAR. WE HAVE NOT DRIVEN IT SINCE WE WERE TOLD IT COULD NOT BE FIXED BECAUSE WE ARE SCARED THE CAR MAY NOT TURN OFF/ON DURING AN EMERGENCY AND WE MAY BE SEVERELY INJURED OR KILLED IF WE EVER HAVE TO TURN IT OFF/ON DURING AN EMERGENCY. I ALSO CALLED MANY KEY SHOPS, CAR ALARM COMPANIES TO SEE IF THEY COULD FIX IT OR REPLACE IT WITH SOMETHING ELSE. EVERYONE TOLD ME THEY COULD NOT FIX IT. I HAVE READ ONLINE THAT IS A MAJOR PROBLEM WITH HONDA VEHICLES. I ASKED THE DEALER WHAT I SHOULD DO IF I AM SOMEWHERE AND I CAN'T TURN ON/OFF THE CAR? THEY SUGGESTED FOR ME TO CALL A TOW TRUCK AND TOW IT TO MY HOUSE. I ASKED THEM WHAT THEY SUGGEST I DO NEXT. THEY SHRUG THEIR SHOULDERS AND SAID 'I DON'T KNOW'. THIS PROBLEM STARTED ABOUT A YEAR AGO BUT IS NOW WORST. SEE ATTACHED PAPERWORK FROM DEALER.

A DAY AGO, MY SON WAS STRANDED AT OUR LOCAL WALMART ABOUT 6 MILES AWAY AT MIDNIGHT. HE GOT IN THE HRV AND IT WOULD NOT START. I CHANGED THE BATTERY AND STILL NO START. I HAD IT TOWED TO THE HONDA DEALERSHIP AND THEY SAID IT WAS THE BATTERY TERMINAL WHICH LOOKS LIKE IT HAS FUSES CONNECTED TO IT. THE COST TO REPLACE THE PART IS OVER $300. I JUST BOUGHT THE CAR 60 DAYS AGO. MY SON COULD HAVE BEEN STRANDED 100 MILES AWAY FROM HOME BECAUSE OF A DEFECT IN THE ELECTRICAL BATTERY TERMINAL CABLES. I WAS TOLD THIS HAPPENS FREQUENTLY WITH THE HONDA VEHICLES WITH THIS TYPE OF SYSTEM. YET THERE ARE NO RECALLS OR FIXES. HONDA JUST WANTS THEIR CUSTOMERS TO KEEP BUYING NEW CABLES???

Summary of Complaint

SMART START WARNING INDICATOR LIGHT CAME ON, CAR HESITATED, BUT DID EVENTUALLY START. THREE TIMES IN THE NEXT FOUR DAYS, OVER A WEEKEND (OF COURSE), THE VEHICLE HESITATED BEFORE STARTING AGAIN AND AGAIN, TWICE AT NIGHT IN A DARK PARKING LOT! TOOK THE VEHICLE TO DEALERSHIP WHERE IT WAS PURCHASED AND HAS HAD ALL MAINTENANCE WORK PERFORMED. THEY REPLICATED THE PROBLEM, "INSPECTED AND FOUND CODE B12C5 STORED IN THE PCM. DIAGNOSED AND FOUND A *DEFECTIVE* ENGINE START/STOP SWITCH." IN EVERY INSTANCE, THE VEHICLE WAS STATIONARY, IN PARK, ON A LEVEL, DRY SURFACE. SINCE THE VEHICLE IS OUT OF WARRANTY BY ONE YEAR AND 10,000 MILES, I HAD TO PAY TO REPLACE A DEFECTIVE PART!

THE VEHICLE WAS JUST ABOUT TO MERGE INTO THE HIGHWAY! THE DEALERSHIP FOUND "METAL PIECES" IN THE TRANSMISSION FLUID (WHICH HAS BEEN CHANGED WITH OEM FLUID AT EVERY RECOMMEND INTERVAL).

Summary of Complaint

WHEN PRESSING THE PUSH START/STOP IGNITION SWITCH IN MY CAR , THE CAR WILL NOT START NOR STOP THE ENGINE. REPEATED PRESSING ON THE SWITCH AND THE BRAKE IS REQUIRED FOR THE VEHICLE TO START AND STOP.THE FAULTY IGNITION SWITCH SIGN HAS BEEN COMING ON AND OFF ON MY DASHBOARD FOR THE PAST 5-6 MONTHS. I HAVE CHANGED THE CAR BATTERY AND THE BATTERY IN MY KEY FOB IN THE LAST MONTH HOPING THAT THIS WOULD SOLVE THE PROBLEM. IT WAS DIAGNOSED BY THE HONDA DEALER ON 09/12/20 THAT THE PROBLEM LIES WITH THE PUSH BUTTON IGNITION SWITCH. DUE TO THE TREMENDOUS DEMAND FOR THIS SWITCH THIS PART IS ON BACK ORDER, WHICH POINTS TO THE FACT THIS IS A MANUFACTURING DEFECT.
