problem #3

Nov 142006


  • 52,000 miles
My car is a 2002 Honda Accord. The chrome plating on the front interior door handles peels away from the plastic substrate. The exposed chrome causes lacerations similar to those caused by a scalpel. These bleed profusely. This has happened several times. Honda simply says the vehicle is beyond warranty. My wife owns a 2007 Accord and the same thing is happening on her interior door handles. These have resulted in several lacerations both to her and to me.
