Default Warranty extension

It looks like a lot of us suddenly have a longer warranty -- or we will,
when the dust settles.

Not a huge issue, but Honda was sued by a few people claiming that the
odometers of many Honda & Acura products were overstating the distance
driven, thereby reducing the actual mileage available under warranty.
It's a class action suit, so anyone who bought or leased a Honda or
Acura (new) between April 13, 2002 and November 7, 2006 gets 5% added to
the mile limit of their warranty.

For most of us -- the 36/36,000 people -- that adds up to a whopping
1,800 extra miles of warranty.

No admission of any odometer problems by Honda. Just a little extra
warranty. I've never noticed any problems with mine...

If the odometer was reading incorrectly,then the speedo should also be
inaccurate.That's how the odo reads miles,isn't it?

Hmmm, I have always wondered why the trip computer portion of our 2003
Accord's factory navigation system always shows an ever so slightly
shorter distance traveled than does the trip odometer. I normally reset
the trip odometer at ever fuel fill-up and the navigation computer does
so automatically.

Nothing which really worries me, but interesting anyway!
