    No, it does not mean automatic accident, but it is not NEVER. Remember that other cars may be tail gating you...

    No kidding! If someone new to this forum reads some of the responses they will probably think twice about ever posting anything. Lets try to give the guy an opportunity to fill in his story before drawing your own conclusions.

    So the vehicle was a total loss. My insurance will cover everything less the engine. Progressive said since it was an engine defect that caused the accident that is not covered and I will need reimbursement from Honda. At this point 1. Service center refuses discussion. 2. Honda America refuses discussion.

    I highly recommend that nobody purchase these vehicles as Honda is refusing warranty service and dealerships will not help. Your only course, like mine, will be through actual litigation.

    Wow that is pathetic. Did you find out more about what caused the engine failure? It would be great to get more information on what led to this.

    So the insurance company says the vehicle is a total right off and will pay to replace the vehicle minus the engine because the engine was defective and caused the accident

    Ok, maybe I was wrong. You do sound like a troll. Where is your evidence of an engine defect? They would need to tear it down to determine that, which obviously did not happen.

    I apologize to those I challenged earlier.

    Ah huh...

    And what about the "other guy" ??? Presumably you got rear ended. Normally the fault lies on the following vehicle for failure to stop, causing an accident. I would imagine that the insurance company would assign blame to that driver not you.
