Hi allHey guys,
Sorry if this isn’t the right area to post but I am too grief stricken with the repair cost of 4.5k. I would like to start a thread to so we can document how many other people's engine blocks are cracking after the 10 year warranty expiration. I just had mine crack (after 102k) last week and brought it in. I am 2 months out of the warranty coverage.
I did a bit of research and saw that the engine normally fails at around 90k-110k miles.
Since there are people out there who dont drive more than 8k miles a year it would take about 11.25 years on average for their engine to fail.
I want to know from other owners do they think it is possible to get a class action put together to cover this issue indefinitely because 100k and buy a new engine is a bit ridiculous.
Again sorry if it isnt the right area maybe a moderator can help me. Again this is a 2.5k-4.5k issue. I feel that it should be addressed by the community.
I've just joined the club of pissed off Civic owners yesterday! I'm in Canada, my 2008 Civic was diagnosed with the engine crack by a Honda dealership, it only has 112K on it!
They told me to reach out to Honda Canada etc but we all know it won't go anywhere, so here I am looking to see which path others have taken. This is a manufacturing defect known as early as 2010 and it's not a subject of warranty, Honda should have recalled these cars as soon as they found about the issue instead they kept it quiet and protected their brand at the cost of consumers! This can justify a legal action however are we able to get together and form an alliance against a giant company?
I've read all the responses under this thread, we all are middle class families who just wanted to have a reliable car, this is not fair by any means.
I'm asking the moderators and the original creator of this thread to reach out to all the owners in here if possible and get an update so we can see what our next steps can be. A petition would be the least we can go for, also any advise on how to approach Honda? It's better to be nice and beg for subsidizing the cost of changing the engine or be rough and threatening to sue them?!
