WOW, big news.... anyone will with half a brain figured out fuel was getting past the rings. Washing the cylinder walls down with gas is not a good thing. Wear is my worry now, soon oil will follow, and your rising oil level will go the other way..... jim
Ill give them min credit for finally acknowledging the issue but agree it's disconcerting Honda doesn't take ownership or let the consumer know they are addressing the issue. Something is amiss with today's Honda. It might be time again for a Honda leadership enema.
Since I've sat through several classes on business law (and even passed them!), i have a slightly different view on the message in the video.
No commitments were made because their lawyers probably forbade them from making any.
For example, if Honda promised a fix by the end of November in any public communication, but some delay caused it to not be available until December 1st some lawyer would sue them.
I suspect that the video is Honda's PR campaign to keep sales from flagging. It comes too quickly after CR's report not to be damage control. Another current thread suggests that an owner has received notice from their dealer to bring in their vehicle for the "fix" but I remain skeptical until affected owners provide feedback on this new "fix".
