From the time that we bought this vehicle new from a dealer, we have been disapointed. Within a few weeks the battery failed, and was replaced. Within a year the condensor of the airconditer failed and was replaced. Due a manufacturers defect the exhause bubbled the rear plastic bumper, and Honda denied responsibility. At 35000 miles the struts wore out and honda denied responsibility. At 60000 miles the air conditioning compressor failed.
At 75000 miles both the front struts and rear shocks failed causing a $900 repair and then a new set of tires. So the struts failed twice in 75000 miles. There is no warranty, and Honda denies culpability.
It has as nice ride when it is working.
Re-engineer the following:
1. Exhause and rear bumper
2. Air conditioning system
3. Shocks and struts
The saga continues. At 85,000 miles the Honda died. After getting it off the road, we had it towed to the dealer. The diagnosis was that the water pump failed. When they took it apart, they found a cracked block. So after some negotiation, we ended up with a new block and a rebuilt engine. Today we took it to a dealer and traded it on a new vehicle before something else went wrong!
