VIN: JHMRA1867VC****

Summary of Complaint

THE CRUISE CONTROL ON THIS CAR CAUSES THE SPEED TO INCREASE WHILE TRAVELING UP LONGER GRADES. THERE HAVE BEEN MANY TIMES DURING OUR OWNERSHIP WHEN THIS HAD CAUSED VERY AWKWARD AND DANGEROUS SITUATIONS. OTHER DRIVERS WHO BEGIN TO PASS ON A HILL HAVE GOTTEN ANNOYED WHEN OUR CAR PICKS UP SPEED WHILE THEY ARE TRYING TO PASS. ON OCCASION THE INCREASE IN SPEED HAS BEEN SUBSTANTIAL, AS MUCH AS 8 MILES PER HOUR. SOMETIMES, WHEN CRESTING A HILL, THE CAR CONTINUES AT THE FASTER SPEED, WANTING TO GAIN EVEN MORE SPEED AT THE NEXT HILL. THE ONLY WAY TO PREVENT THIS IS TO DISENGAGE THE CRUISE WHEN APPROACHING HILLS. THIS PROBLEM WAS REPORTED TO THE DEALER EARLY ON, BUT HE WAS UNABLE TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. *AK

VIN: JH2SC2604VM****

Summary of Complaint

ST1100 CARBURETOR ICE HAS OCCURRED SEVERAL TIMES ON THIS VEHICLE WHEN OUTSIDE AIR IS BETWEEN 35 AND 40, AND FOG OR RAIN IS OCCURRING. THE MOST RECENT OCCURRENCE WAS ON FEB 6 1999, AND CAUSED A TOTAL ENGINE SHUT DOWN ON A BUSY ROADWAY WITH NO PLACE TO PULL OFF. I WAS ALMOST HIT BY TRAFFIC BEHIND ME, AND HAD TO WAIT ABOUT 5 MINUTES TO RESTART AFTER THE ICE MELTED. THIS PROBLEM OCCURRED SEVERAL MORE TIMES THE SAME DAY AND CREATED HAZARDOUS SITUATIONS IN WHICH THE ENGINE WAS BARELY ABLE TO RUN AND WAS VERY ROUGH. UPON REACHING AN AREA WHERE THE AIR WAS DRY, IT RAN FINE. THIS HAS HAPPENED EVERYTIME, I HAVE OPERATED THE VEHICLE IN COOL/MOIST CONDITIONS, YET HONDA CLAIMS THAT THEY KNOW OF NO PROBLEM ON THIS MODEL WITH CARBURETOR ICE. MY CONTACT WITH OTHER OWNERS OF THIS MODEL VIA INTERNET, INDICATES THAT MANY OWNERS OF THIS MODEL HAVE CARBURETOR ICE PROBLEMS UNDER THE CONDITIONS I HAVE DESCRIBED. THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS IN TRAFFIC AND VERY INCONVENIENT AT ANY OTHER TIME. *AK
