CONSUMER COMPLAINT: ODI Case Number: 10229691

Component: ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

Details: THERE IS A LARGE VOLTAGE DROP THAT CAN BE SEEN IN THE LIGHTS AT NIGHT … THE LIGHTS REALLY DIM AS THE ALTERNATOR CYCLES .. IT OCCURS EVERY NIGHT WHEN DRIVING AND HAPPENS AT STEADY RPMS AND WHEN DECELERATING .. I KNOW THIS IS NOT A MAJOR COMPLAINT BUT THE CAR IS NEW AND IT MAY TURN INTO SOMETHING DOWN THE “ROAD” , TIME WISE FOR OWNERS ..WHAT WORRIES ME THAT IN A FEW MONTHS THAT THE VOLTAGE DROP MAY CAUSE A PROBLEM AND STALL ENGINE OR LIGHTS DIMMING MAY PULL EXCESSIVELY ON BATTERY AND CHARGING SYSTEM AND CAUSE FAILURES IN OTHER AREAS .. THANK YOU VERY MUCH IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP AND THE FORUM TO PASS ON CONCERNS THAT MAYBE SAFETY CONCERNS. *TR

Component: ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:ALTERNATOR/GENERATOR/REGULATOR

Details: VEHICLE PASSENGER SEAT CREAKS AND IS NOT STABLE, LIGHTS ON CAR CONTINUE TO FLICKER AND DIM IN AND OUT WHEN A/C AND HEADLIGHTS ARE ON. VERY DANGEROUS. SOMEONE WILL THINK YOU ARE BRIGHTENING THEM OR STOPPING SUDDENLY AND WILL EITHER CAUSE A CRASH OR ROAD RAGE INCIDENT. TODAY EDDIE MILAN,GENERAL MANAGER OF SLOANE HONDA CALLED ME (CAN VERIFY BY CELL PHONE BILL) AND “TOLD ME NOT TO COME BACK TO SLOANE HONDA ANYMORE” GREAT ATTITUDE AFTER MULTIPLE PURCHASES AND SENDING MULTIPLE CUSTOMERS. HONDA REFUSES TO ADMIT THEY HAVE PROBLEMS>I WILL COMPLAIN EVERYDAY THAT IT GIVES ME PROBLEMS. I URGE ALL CONSUMERS WHO HAVE THESE PROBLEMS TO KEEP COMPLAINING UNTIL HONDA FIXES THIS ISSUE. CARS HAVE PROBLEMS. BUT FLICKERING HEADLIGHTS AND TAILLIGHTS ARE A DANGER. *TR
