problem #1

May 092002


  • miles
When on the freeway going 70mph over a series of evenly spaced road bumps between the sections of the roadway, the car bounced higher with each bump until it seemed as if it would lift off the road, like a trampoline effect. This is a brand-new model, so others may eventually report the problem too. I am afraid to drive on the freeway for fear that the car would leave the road if it went over an even longer series of bumps. When I brought this problem to the dealer on May 10, they test drove the car but could not duplicate the problem because they could not find a series of road bumps equidistant from each other. I tried to call Honda, but was disconnected in the middle of talking to a representative. I am hearing impaired and use a relay operator. It appeared I was hung up on because of using a tdd.
