Default Accord, CR-V, Element Recall

BC-US--Honda Recall,108
Honda recalling 1.5 million vehicles in US
Eds: APNewsNow.
WASHINGTON (AP) Honda is recalling about 1.5 million
vehicles in the U.S. to update the software on the automatic
transmission to decrease the possibility of transmission damage.
The recall affects certain 2005-2010 4-cylinder Accord, 2007-2010 CR-V
and 2005-2008 Element vehicles.

The company said Friday that without the change, the transmission's
secondary shaft bearing can be damaged when the car is shifted too
quickly. Honda said that can happen when a driver tries to get the
vehicle dislodged from mud or snow.

Honda says it will begin sending recall notifications to
customers on Aug. 31. The company says that no injuries or deaths
have been reported because of the problem.

Uh-oh. Here we go again.

Except that the '05+ trannies are about as reliable as Honda's ever made in
its life. Maybe they're so paranoid of further problems that they're
issuing the recall just-in-case.

I seriously doubt that they're "as reliable as Honda's ever made in its
life". Not if something that people have been doing for 75
years--rocking the car out of the snow--will suddenly cause a bearing to
fail.

The '05 and up are the very best automatics Honda has ever made. You don't
have to believe me, but they are.

I think this new recall is a panicked overreaction by Honda, which is
scared stiff of a repeat of the previous problems that cost them so much
money and so many sales. Those previous problems hurt them very badly,
something they didn't need with Hyundai breathing heavily down their necks.

It's not that I don't believe you, but the track record would indicate
otherwise to a buyer who's paying even only half attention.

how are you quantifying this "belief"? is honda keeping new model
transmission parts and cores off the market evidence of reliability?
and is a mere 6-year old vehicle lasting 60-70k miles [or less] evidence
of reliability? [i think not.]

as far as i'm concerned, "reliability" is honda discounting and dumping
its stock of 88-91 civic transmissions on the market a couple of years
ago because they'd been sitting in warehouse for two decades and hadn't
moved.

they'd planned for some attrition when they decided to "go detroit", but
they didn't anticipate the extent of negative reaction because they
hadn't done sufficient homework, and their management's mba-driven
idiocy occluded what "honda" actually /means/ to its customer base.

my 89 civic hatch is the last honda i'll own unless they dramatically
change direction. they need a wrx/evo killer and they need a "real"
tunable cheap hatchback, preferably both of the same platform. and stop
this idiotic macpherson penny-pinching already. if i wanted macpherson,
i'd buy a toyota. or a buick.

but then, you're being redundant and repeating yourself.

(he says, looking at the Prius in his garage--but hey, at least Toyota
didn't have to "fix" the software so the battery gets less use and will
last past the warranty period, moving the cost of that over to the owner
who will now get lower gas mileage)
