At About 24500 Miles, I Drove For 1500miles Rig1500milesoil Service At Dealer, The Engine Light Came On. I Contact Them And They Towed The Vehicle To The Dealer/service. They Filled The Engine And Told Me To Drive 1000 Miles And Came Back For Them To Test Oil Consumption. I Did It For 2 Times Consecutive And They Say It Was Within Normal Level. I Ask Them To Test Again. They Agree. Now, After Drive 1500 Miles I Went Back And There Was No Oil In The Engine. A Fraction Below The Lower Level. Now, They Will Submit A Repair Request To honda Of Usa, But, My Vehicle Is Up To 27500 Miles. Tecnicaly Not Covered By Warranty. But Sense I Notice And They Documented The Problem Before 25000, It Will Be Repaired Under Warranty. What Will Happen After Another 5000 Miles Only God Knows. honda Of Usa Should Do A Recall On Engine Rings And Pistons Or Even Replace It All.

Excessive Oil Consumption Fixed By honda After Warranty Expired And At No Cost With Free Loaner Car!!! There Is A Serious Problem With The Newer Gen honda Engines! My Personal Opinion Is Bad Piston Rings!!! Groves Are Created Over Time And Thus Oil Is Consumed Into The Block. I Did The Recommended Oil Consumption Test At Dealer And By The End I Was Losing 1 Qt Oil Every 800 Miles. New Short Block Installed At Around 79k Miles. This Is A Manufacturing Defect And honda Will, Should Make It Right. To All The People Going Through This, Be Persistent!!!!

My honda Is Burning Oil From The Ingine.no Leaks. I Can Get A Oil Change Today And In 5 Days I Need More Oil. I’ve Taken It To The Dealership And See Online 64 Complaints Of This Code 1982a. Now The Dealer Wants Me To Pay Almost 4,000 Dollars To Get It Fix When They Know They Sold Me A Lemon. honda Dealer Said I Need Pistons,rings And Spark Plugs. Today They Gave Me A Loaner Car But Says I Have To Pay 485 To Break Down My Engine And Possibly 485 To Pit It Back Together After The Test.

My Car Had Been Sitting For 2 And A Half Weeks While I Was Out Of The Country. Upon Starting The Car, Check Brake System, Check Vsa System, Check Hill Start Assist System, Service Due Soon And Check Emission Lights Illuminated On My Dashboard. When I Began To Accelerate, The Car Only Got Up To 5 Miles Per Hour. It Was A 7 Minute Drive From Airport Parking To My Residence. I Parked The Car And It Sat Over The Thanksgiving Weekend. The Following Week I Had The Car Towed To The Mcdavid honda In Irving, Tx. I Gave Detailed History From The Time Of Purchase A Year And Half Ago. I Advised The Dealership, I Was Full Aware Of The Excessive Oil Burning In Issue That Had Been Previous Diagnosed At The Original honda Dealership I Purchased The Car From. I Kept Up With Excessive Oil Changes That Needed To Be Done. The Service Tech Said It Had Zero Oil And The Piston Rings Would Need To Be Changed. He And His Manager Stated That They Would Complete An Oil Change At My Expense, I Would Need To Drive The Car A Thousand Miles And Then Immediately Return The Car To The Dealership, If The Problem Occurred Then The Dealership Would Cover The Cost. I Advised Them Again I Had Already Done That Type Of Testing Previously. But, Then, Service Tech Proceeds To Explain I Also Need All 8 Spark Plugs Changed At My Expense. honda Is Fully Aware Of The Excessive Oil Consumption Issue With The insights. This Is A 2013, 57,000 Miles, Up To Date Service Record. I Do Not Feel Safe Driving This Car Anymore. The Uncertainty Is Overwhelming. *tr

I Have Life Time Oil Changes, I Had The Oil Changed On 10/27/16, I Advised, For The Second Time That It Was Using Quite A Bit Of Oil (it Was Low Again). They Said It Was Normal For The Car. On December 1, I Was On The Freeway And My Car Stalled. I Was Able To Pull Off Of The Freeway And Had To Wait For A Tow Truck As My Car Would Not Start. We Had The Car Towed To The Dealership, And When They Estimated The Repairs, It Was $8200.00 To Fix. The Car Is Not Even Worth $7500.00. They Told Me That The Valve Tightened, Which Was Rare At This Mileage, Causing The Spark Plugs To Melt, Burn The Exhaust Valve, And A Burnt Cylinder Hole. I Was Informed By The Dealership That Valve Jobs Don’t Occur Until 100,000 Miles In These Vehicles. They Also Said That The Oil Should Have Been Changed More Often Due To The Oil Consumption. I Was Already Adding Oil In Between Oil Changes. Due To The Cost Of The Repairs, I Am In Search Of A Replacement Motor To Install Instead Of Having The Dealership Rebuild It. *tr

Excessive Oil Consumption – Warning Lights Do Not Come On To Tell You There Is An Issue With Low Oil. Only Notice At Time Of Oil Changes That Levels Seemed Low. And Not Oil Is Basically Needing To Be Checked And Monitored Like Gas. And Then Sudden Emission Light At Only 60,000 Miles On The Car And I Am Told All They Will Do Is Fix Something Once It Breaks. Why Wont honda Just Replace Engine Pieces Without Continued Impact On My Time. This Oil Test Is Going To Cost Me An Additional 2 Hours Out Of My Days Coming Up For Every 1000 Miles, 3x!

The Vehicle Has On-going “oil Consumption” Issues That American honda Neglected To Address. As A Result, The Oil Goes Up Exhaust Pipes To Caused Engine Over Heat And Blow Up During Driving On Highway. American honda Issued An “internal Memo” To Extend Engine Warranty To 8 Years Without Notifying Car Owners. However, They Failed To Cover Our Blew-up Engine When The First Time Happened And Charged Us $4600 For An Used Engine. Within 8 Months, The Second Engine Blew Up Again On The Highway. American honda Finally Covered The Second Engine Repair. The American honda Rejected To Reimburse The First Engine Blow-up. They Denied Anything Wrong With The Engine, But The Extended The Warranty To 8 Years??? We Have The Records For Both Engine Blow-ups.
