Currently I Have 32,277 Miles And Don’t Drive It, It’s Not Safe To Drive. I Take A Bus :) 1# Trans Locked At 60mph On Hwy And Caused Almost A Fatal Crash! At 23,000 Miles. Car Was Able To Drive Up To 15mpg Having Appx. 6000rpms. Car Left At Dealership And Only Pcm Software Was Upd. No Lockups Are Occurring, But Trans Is Weaving, Harsh Start/stop Often!/unexpected Shutdown. Dealership Found Service Bulletin #08-014 (harsh Engagement), Upd. The On Board Computer And Symptoms Are Much Worse Than Previously. Lower Mpg ( 25-28 ), Much Worse Performance, Unexpected Battery Discharge, Weaving, Low Accel. Dealer Duplicated Problems, But Said “it’s Ok” And Problems Is Untouched. Since They Updated The System, The Hybrid Option Is Not Kicking In As Before. Prev. I Was Able To Drive Slowly Only On Hybrid, Now I Can’t. No Actions Are Taken To Resolve The Issue. Once They Changed The Ima Batt Pack, But This Did Not Help And I See Not A Difference. Complained Again, And Absolutely No Response. Brakes Are Malfunctioning. Brake Fluid Is Missing, Dealer Said “[xxx], It’s A Mystery”. Depending On Outside Temp, Battery Charge Level And Car Temp Breaks Work Diff! Occasionally While Slowing Down, The Battery Level Reaches Full And You Must Press The Pedal As Hard As You Can To Stop. This Has Caused Small Crashes And Once Brakes Did Not Work, Or I Pressed Too Lightly ( Cold Outside With Full Battery ) And Unfortunately I Couldn’t Stop On Time And Ran Over A Pedestrian. She Is Badly Injured And Suing My Insurance Company! Dealer Rec. To “change Car, Better To Buy Not A honda And Don’t Bother Them If Nothing Is Broken.” Police Report Ready To Present. These Are Only The Major Issues I’m Having. I Would Need Much More Space To Write 20 Pgs Essay. Minor Issues: – Super Fast Tire Wear ( After 20,000 ) And Now Again At 32,000 – Not Working Climate Ctrl System – Check Engine, Ima Light, Brake System And Airbag Lights On.
