"TAKATA RECALL" I PURCAHSED A 2008 HONDA ACCORD IN 2013. ABOUT A YEAR AND HALD AGO I STARTED NOTICING THAT THE CAR WAS BURNING ALOT OF OIL. ON TOP OF OIL CHANGES, I HAD TO ADD 3-4 QUARTS A MONTH. IN SEPT 2015 I RCVD A WARRANTY EXT FROM AMERICAN HONDA FOR STICKING PISTONSRINGS RESULTING IN HIGH ENGINE OIL CONSUMPTION. I TOOK THE CAR TO MY LOCAL HONDA DELAERSHIP AND WAS TOLD 3 FAILED ATTEMPTS FOR A OIL CONSUMPTION TEST HAD TO BE DONE FIRST BEFORE HONDA WOULD FIX RINGS PROBLEM. TOOK THE CAR TO HONDA IN OCT 2015 TO START TEST 1. AFTER THAT THE CAR STARTED ACTING FUNNY. I WOULD JERK ALOT, ENGINE LIGHT WOULD START FLASHING, IT WOULDNT ACCELERATE PROPERLY. IN FEB 2016 IT HAPPENED AGAIN AND I GOT STRANDED BECAUSE THE CAR WOULDNT ACCELERATE. AMERICAN HONDA WOULDNT HONOR THE WARRANTY EXT BECAUSE I WAS OVER THE ALLOWED MILES. THEY KNOW THERE WAS AN ISSUE WITH THESE MODEL CARS AND HAD ONLY RECENTLY SENT ME A LETTER REGARDING IT. I FOUND OUT THAT A FEW OF THE CYLINDERS WERE MISFIRING AND AFTER RESERACH FOUND OUT IT WAS DUE TO THE RINGS. THEY PROVIDED TERRIBEL CUSTOMER SERVICE AND THEY PUT A CRAPPY ON THE STREET AND DID EVERYTHING TO AVIOID FIXING IT. AND THEN INFORMED CUSTOMERS SO LATE AFTER THE CASE WAS SETTLED.
