  • 11 miles
Bought a brand new Honda Accord 2009 ex from bryan auto in fayetteville, nc on 11/5/08...upon leaving the lot (11 miles on car) the tmps indicator came on and has stayed on permanently since then. We have been advised by my auto insurance co (usaa) not to drive the vehicle under any circumstances--the vehicle may be replaceable, but our lives our not. We took the car back to bran Honda on 11/7/08 and complained, yet were told only that the tire pressure "may or may not" have been checked--they will not provide us with documentation of any service from this date. We have a car that we fear to drive--they have suggested putting nitrogen in the tires, but I am not willing to go against my warranty or Honda specifications which may void my warranty. The car and the dealership are a disaster--they are rude, uncaring and insensitive, and we have a useless, dangerous car-the light stays on steady, so is not related to any temperature changes. We desperately need assistance. Thanks so very much for your time & consideration in this matter.
