That's fine, just so it's not me...The catch 22 is that if no one buys the 2017 there will be no 2018. Just the nature of the beast. It's how the dealer/mfg deals with the teething pains is the true test.
He had every reason to say what he did. His truck was a lemon with numerous issues. His dealer f'd him off and so did Honda Corporate. They had every chance to make it right and didn't.Just the title is "pos", Honda's do not suck, If he doesnt like it, have him buy something else, and understand that nothings absolute perfect, its not the space shuttle, but honda's are better then the rest,and the rest of us will enjoy honda products.
I agree he wasn't treated properly by either his dealer or corporate, assuming everything went as his story laid out.He had every reason to say what he did. His truck was a lemon with numerous issues. His dealer f'd him off and so did Honda Corporate. They had every chance to make it right and didn't.
2002 was the first year for the Gen 2 CRV. We bought a 2003 CRV as well, just sold it less than a year ago. Very few issues, outside of regular maintenance and only 2-3 recalls to include the airbag IIRC. Only 90k when we sold it, it went for a premium. We replaced it with a Subaru Forester which I think is the better vehicle in2016. Still believe buying a first year vehicle is a gamble. My 2004 Nissan TITAN had too many problems for Nissan's first year at a full sized pickup. Loved the truck, hated the trips to the dealership. Traded in on a 2007 RL. I has had it's share of problems (I post my maintenance costs/issues annually on my anniversary date).I bought a first year, first model 1997 Honda CRV. Zero issues for 6 years until my newly licensed son totaled it. So I immediately bought a Gen 2 2003 Honda CRV. I just sold that 13 years later a couple months ago. Very few issues and neither of those had to go in for an warranty issues. Except the 2003 was part of the airbag recall.
Well, I'm not surprised that he had this kind of problem since I had major issues with a new '16 Taco 4x4 Ltd and neither Toyota nor my dealer would do anything at all. Toyota's response was "functions as designed" and the dealer regularly said "can't do anything unless Toyota issues a fix", even though they acknowledged the issue. After buying over a dozen vehicles from this dealership group (same fleet manager) over the last 15 years, and referring them numerous customers, who also bought there, they lost my business forever. I sent a letter to both explaining why I was getting rid of their $40k problem truck. Dealership never responded. Toyota called and said "thank you for your input."Looks to me like some of those issues will never be fixed properly. Not sure why Honda or the dealer did not buy the car back or et him another one as a good wll jesture. It has been my experience that GM will step up in these things......but also more likely you will have problems like this with GM.
Read this thread, the dealer screwed him by stating they only had the vehicle once, vs 3 or 4 times, then how the district manager acted/treated him pretty much ended any chance of resolving it. Lemon laws are different per state, and IIRC, none of this met the requirements in Texas, safety or number of attempts. Also check out this thread.Was there no option for Lemon Law in this case? Or did the video OP just give up?
