problem #1

  • 67,240 miles
The 2002 Honda Odyssey with 67K miles showed "check engine" light & was immediately taken to nearby mechanic, who identified the code as P1491 & asked me to take it to the dealer for coverage under 8yr/80K extended warranty. The dealership & american Honda company refused to cover it saying it was 45 days over the 8 yr warranty period, even though the 67K miles is under the 80K. There was no notification to me in the last 8 years about this possible problem, nor was there any check done on numerous services with the Honda dealer. Now the traction control system light shows up randomly, which is considered a possible safety hazard. We had multiple phone calls with american Honda & appointment with Honda dealer & they are refusing to consider it Honda's issue, inspite of mileage being significantly low.
