Complaint - Engine

I PURCHASED A USED 2011 HONDA ACCORD EX-L 4 CYLINDER. UNKNOWN AT THE TIME THAT THESE SPECIFIC MODEL CARS HAVE A HISTORY OF EXCESSIVE OIL CONSUMPTION. ALTHOUGH A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT COVERED THE V-6 MODELS THE 4 CYLINDER MODELS WERE NOT. AFTER PURCHASING BEFORE I EVEN PUT 2,000 MILES ON VEHICLE IT WAS ALMOST OUT OF OIL WITH NO SIGNS OF LEAKING. FINALLY TOOK IT TO DEALERSHIP AND HAD OIL CONSUMPTION TEST DONE IN AUGUST 2015. THEY DECIDED THE PISTON RINGS WERE BAD. THEY DID GIVE ME A 10% DISCOUNT ON THE REPAIRS. SHORTLY AFTERWARDS I RECEIVED A WARRANTY EXTENSION FOR 2008-2011 HONDA ACCORDS FOR 8 YEARS OF ORIGINAL PURCHASE DATE OR 125,00 MILES. WHEN PURCHASED IT HAD 135,000 AND AT TIME OF REPAIR 150,000. I TRIED CALLING DEALERSHIP TO COMPLAIN SINCE HONDA NEW ABOUT THIS PROBLEM LONG BEFORE THE EXTENSION SINCE THEY ISSUED A SERVICE BULLETIN 12-087, 2012. THIS IS MY SECOND HONDA I HAVE OWNED AND PROBABLY WILL BE THE LAST IF THEY DO NOT COVER MY REPAIR BILL OF $1727.75. IT IS SAD THAT A CAR COMPANY THAT MAKES A FAULTY CAR TO TAKE THREE YEARS TO ISSUE A WARRANTY EXTENSION THAT PROBABLY HAS ABOUT 50% OF VEHICLES AFFECTED THAT DO NOT MEET THE MILEAGE CRITERIA. HONDA SHOULD ISSUE A RECALL. I AM A WORKING MAN WITH A FAMILY AND CANNOT AFFORD TO BUY A NEW CAR WITH LESS THAN A 100,00 MILES AND THEN HAVE A $1727.75 REPAIR BILL THAT I HAD TO MAX A CREDIT CARD OUT ON, NOT TO MENTION THE EXTRA MONEY SPENT ADDING OIL EVERY 1,000 MILES BEFORE REPAIR WAS COMPLETED. IF HONDA CARES ABOUT THEIR PRODUCT THEY SHOULD RESOLVE THE ISSUE NOT ISSUE AN EXTENSION AFTER MOST OF THE CARS ARE OVER THE CRITERIA FOR THE WARRANTY EXTENSION. I WILL BE SUBMITTING MY PAPERWORK TO SEE IF THEY WILL RESOLVE MY CASE. I SURELY HOPE SO. I WILL NEVER PURCHASE ANOTHER HONDA AFTER READING ALL THE COMPLAINTS AND THE CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT.
