I have been concerned about the potential for water leaks since before I made my RL purchase.
It is beneficial that Honda has issued a TSB on the front compartment
water leak. However, I am not confident that this TSB will correct all front compartment leaks.
Over months of reading many posts regarding an assortment of Dealer solutions to this problem it appears that there are various causes for the front compartment leak. The Honda TSB only proposes one solution which I doubt will address all causes for the leak.
Example: Uh oh..Trouble in Paradise. (Leaky Interior)
My S/N falls within this group
, and after 4,800 miles my interior is dry. However, it may be just a matter of time before the leak starts
I have read that individuals have been able to negotiate their own compensation ... ie, free extended warranty, free RL replacement, $$$. However, the success of this may be a function of the negotiator, Dealership, and Honda Regional Rep ... too many variables to satisfy me.
In the past, has Honda provided 1st year model owners (as a group
) with compensation for the "1st year model mfg bugs" aggrevation, pain, suffering?
I know about the Lemon Law, but I'm not sure that repeat visits for a water leak caused by different problems is eligible.
