ENGINE

8/18/2016 - BETTENDORF, IA
VTC ACTUATOR MAKES LOUD RATTLE WITH ALMOST EVERY START. IT IS AN ENGINE PROBLEM ON 2007 TO 2012 HONDA CRV AS WELL AS 2008 TO 2012 ACCORDS. IF THIS PART FAILS, THE ENGINE WILL SEIZE UP AND COULD CAUSE THE DRIVER TO LOSE CONTROL. HONDA HAS VERIFIED THE PROBLEM BUT SINCE THE VEHICLE IS OUT OF WARRANTY AT 75000 MILES, THEY REFUSE TO REMEDY THE PROBLEM. GIVEN CASE NUMBER 04825102 AND CONTACTED PRODUCT CONCERNS DEPARTMENT BUT STILL REFUSED TO ADDRESS PROBLEM. VEHICLE HAS SERVICE NOTICE 09010. HONDA TECH CONFIRMED THEY HAVE HAD MAY PROBLEMS AND EVEN HAD TO GET A REPLACEMENT PART FOR THEIR REPLACEMENT PART. THIS NEEDS TO BE DEALT WITH BY HONDA, BUT THEY ARE NOT TAKING ANY RESPONSIBILITY.

ENGINE CLICKS WHEN STARTING, ESPECIALLY WHEN COLD. IT SOUNDS LIKE OIL IS NOT GETTING TO THE ENGINE. I BELIEVE IT MAY BE RELATED TO THE VTC ACTUATOR.

8/8/2016 - WINTER PARK, FL
TAKATA RECA** RECEIVED NOTIFICATION VIA MAIL 7/23/16 THAT PASSENGER AIRBAG INFLATOR IS NOW PART OF RECALL, ADVISED NOT TO DRIVE WITH PASSENGER UNTIL ITS BEEN FIXED, BUT HONDA OFFERS NO INFORMATION ABOUT WHEN THAT WILL BE. CALLED HONDA ON 7/25 (NEXT BUSINESS DAY) TO REQUEST ALTERNATE TRANSPORTATION, WAS TOLD TO ALSO FOLLOW UP WITH LOCAL HONDA DEALER. CALLED THEM, LEFT MESSAGE WITH "PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR REVIEWING". AFTER CALLING FOR TWO MORE DAYS AND TALKING WITH AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE, LOCAL DEALER REP STATED THEY CAN DO NOTHING UNTIL NATIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE REVIEWS AND AUTHORIZES LOANER VEHICLE. CALLED NATIONAL CUSTOMER SERVICE 7/28/16 TO FOLLOW UP ON REQUEST AS NO WORD FROM CASE MANAGER. WAS ON VACATION THE FOLLOWING WEEK SO NO FOLLOWUP, BUT NO CALL FROM HONDA EITHER. ON 8/8/16 (TWO WEEKS AFTER INITIAL REQUEST), CALLED AGAIN TO FOLLOW UP, DENISE CONFIRMED MY REQUEST IS IN THE ESCALATIONS QUEUE AND TO BE PATIENT. I FIND IT BEYOND RIDICULOUS THAT HONDA CANNOT STAFF THEMSELVES APPROPRIATELY TO DEAL WITH THIS RECALL SITUATION. EVERY DAY THAT GOES BY, WHILE I WAIT "PATIENTLY" IS ANOTHER DAY THAT HONDA OUR FAMILY RISKS INJURY OR DEATH FROM THE AIRBAG IN OUR VEHICLE AND IS ANOTHER DAY THAT HONDA DOESN'T HAVE TO PAY FOR A RENTAL VEHICLE TO ELIMINATE THE RISK OF THAT INJURY/DEATH. HONDA IS GAMBLING THAT OUR VEHICLE, THAT HAS SPENT ITS ENTIRE 8 YEARS OF EXISTENCE IN A PRIORITY (HUMID) LOCATION (FLORIDA), WON'T INJURE OR KILL US IN THE MEANTIME, EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE GONE SO FAR AS TO ADVISE IN WRITING FOR NO ONE TO RIDE IN THE FRONT PASSENGER SEAT. DUE TO OUR CHILD SAFETY SEATS IN THE BACK FOR OUR CHILDREN, THERE IS NO OTHER VIABLE SEATING POSITION IN THIS VEHICLE AND THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. HONDA IS SANDBAGGING THE RENTAL VEHICLE REQUEST PROCESS. THEY NEED TO EXPEDITE REQUESTS FOR ALTERNATE TRANSPORTATION BEFORE ANOTHER PERSON IS INJURED OR KILLED.
