It's going to escalate faster as these vehicles age. A few years from now, there could be ten times as many failures. How many people have to get injured or die before they issue a recall?As of now, there are 10 complaints of this in the NHTSA database within the last year, 8 failures occurring while the vehicle was on the road. All in states that encounter inclement weather and utilize road salt.
I've already filed a complaint on the kiddo's Accord for the rear beam rust-through that thousands of owners have experienced. Yet Honda still doesn't think it's a problem. 🙄 It was clearly a design issue, as they let the drainage from the AC evaporator drain right onto the rear beam.
