You must be one of the few that the head gasket has not blown YET. Watch at 100k for overheating.Report it
Haha, indeed as a matter of fact the car (116K) is in at the honda dealer right now for a new head gasket, supposed to cost $1,092 (my head was not warped). I actually caught mine early before the overheating began because the heat stopped working when I was at idle, returning when moving. Also I smelled antifreeze and saw the exhaust gases were pushing antifreeze out of the reservoir. Other non critical issues: brake pads shifting in calipers, driver seat rocking, clutch creeking somewhere near transmission (only in extreme heat) brake pedal popping (only solved by new master cylinder) I'm trying for 200k, hope everything else stays solid on the car. I think honda should start reimbursing part of the cost for the head gasket since this is such a widespread problem.Report it
