ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

5/11/2018 - SCOTTSBURG, IN
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!

SERVICE BRAKES

12/11/2017 - DUNSMUIR, CA
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.
