Engine 2: Hole in the engine. Tech Honda wrote: “Threw rod”
Note: I bought the car new at Honda dealership, I maintain the car, do oil changes and State inspection only at the Honda dealerships. I am current on all my maintenance.
- On June 17, 2020, my car broke down in the middle of the traffic on the highway. The Engine leaks fluids and started to smoke.
- I took the car to the Honda dealer for repair. The Tech identified a hole in the engine from the inside to the outside. The tech wrote: “the engine seized. Engine destroyed internals and crack block”.
- The engine was changed, and all repairs were completed on July 7, 2020. Part and labor were paid by the extended warranty company minus my deductible.
- The part warranty after repairs is 12 Months or 12 Miles witch others come first. The Mileage at the time of the repairs is 83416 miles
- On Dec 3, 2020, the engine went out again (Big hole in the engine and oil is leaking again) and the car stopped in the middle of the highway again. The mileage on the vehicle at the time of the incident was 87193 miles. The oil change and State inspection were just made at the Honda car dealer 30 days ago.
- The car is now at the mechanic Honda car dealer. The part warranty after repairs is 12 Months or 12 Miles witch others come first, and it is still valid. The Extended warranty company and Honda car dealer asked me to submit the claim to company who sourced the engine. At this point Company who provided the engine denied the claim starting 1 Heat tab start to melt at the middle.
- Did anyone have this issue or something similar resulting with a hole in the engine?
- Is the class action law sue settlement is applicable to this issue as well?
- Who do you think have to take some responsibilities Honda Corporation (2 engines internal failure), Honda Dealer (failure the investigate the root cause of the first engine failure prior swapping engine, picture of the heat stab confirming that they were not partially melted, refusing to explain why thermostat or spark plugs were replaced when installing the second engine), the company who provided the second engine (who is refusing to release the history on the engine and the picture of the heat stab confirming that they were not partially melted)?
