Exactly! Even an army of us can't win over a giant company like Honda! I talked to Honda customer support, wrote a complaint to BBB, sent an email to the media...Didn't get anywhere! ended up selling the car for $2800, it didn't cover the taxes of the new car but they are selling 08 for $6000 with running engine so $2800 wasn't too bad! The guy repaired it, changed the rims, installed a back camera and was going to sell it for $6000+. If you found a reliable engine and a cheap mechanic, I'd say repair it, but don't spend anything more than $1500 altogether and not even one dime in courts against Honda!Honda isn't going to do anything. They covered this defect years ago and the (extended) warranty on your particular car has run out. You can try to get them to fix it, but I wouldn't bet any money. Realize the car is now 12 years old. I would go after the dealer who sold it to you. Talk to a lawyer and you will more than likely go into some settlement. You didn't know about this defect, THEY (dealer) did.
