What's Honda doing about crows feet??

Hey guys,

I recently noticed I have crows feet on my nhbp fa5 with 56k miles, does anyone know what Honda is/will do about it?


I'm taking it to My dealer tomorrow morning to see what they are going to suggest.

past the 36K warranty, so I'm sure they'll tell you to f off. I wouldn't even bother taking it in.

OP do u mean cracks in your paint? They just had a recall for some Honda odyssey's with fading paint. They repainted my buddies car and it's got 80k+ on the odometer.

They will probably tell you that there is nothing they can do about it. Good luck

I took mine in last december,i was out of warranty, the service advisor checked it out, called up the area rep,and they repainted the hood and front fenders at no charge,its worth a try, i think it depends on your service advisor.

Hmmm....I think I'll go do that. I have a FBP, and have tons of crows feet on the hood. Worth a try I guess.

I would be the vast majority of people that go will be told to get bent. No crows feet here though.

Worth a shot, the worst they can do is say no. Speak with the service manager, see what he can do.

Just had the same issue with my 2009 PMM that I've had for 2 years. My hood and fenders were covered. Luckily I was still under warranty. Took it into the dealership and they called the Honda Reps. Honda took care of everything.

Heres a pic of my FA5's crows feet guys, I took it to the dealer this morning and they took pictures and are sending it to the regional rep. Ill get back to you when I hear from them!
