We have decided Toyota will be next. USED to be Hondas for my Wife.

May 06, 2024 03:37AM
We bought a brand new CRV in Dec 2018. It has had all sorts of electrical glitches. The dash will sometimes either start blinking, dim so much it cannot be seen in day light or just shut off. OF COURSE, Honda says they have to see it to know what's up even though my Wife has taken multiple videos and photos. The SERVICE Manager is USELESS.

I have a 13 year old Nissan Sentra that has, Mechanically (KNOCK ON WOOD), been an awesome car. But the paint flaked off the wheels after two years. I painted them myself because I was NOT gonna pay $149 for each of the ....plastic frisbees. At year 5, the paint started flaking on the side mirrors. Just 4 months ago, I found that I have MAJOR / irreparable rust under the roof , at the right "A" post. I fully expect to see it eat its way to the exterior within a year or two. That was because of a fine leak along the roof seam and windshield. I paid $25K for that car and that was 13 years ago. I bet the same "QUALITY" is 30-35K now.

  Our talks about "Modern" crap products...Yesterday, I chatted quite a while with our Mechanic.

  Almost none of this is accurate

LesBaker39May 05, 2024 03:02PM

  I disagree.

Ramgator37May 05, 2024 03:32PM

  This is you complaining about things that aren't real

LesBaker26May 06, 2024 01:30PM

  My rant is backed up by THREE Mechanics at a highly respected Automotive.

Ramgator22May 08, 2024 03:39PM

  Just 12-13 years ago, Honda Elements were EVERYWHERE.

Ramgator18May 08, 2024 03:44PM

  Dude its fairly common knowledge dealerships are a rip off on parts and service

LesBaker21May 09, 2024 03:33AM

  Talked to a Nissan Service Manager about that about 7 years ago.

Ramgator19May 09, 2024 09:22AM

  I would argue that....

JamesJM46May 05, 2024 03:36PM

  Yes! I have very minimal Mechanical skills but even so....

Ramgator24May 05, 2024 03:40PM

  Your right Les

ScRAM22May 08, 2024 04:47PM

  Call yourself lucky. You can call ME wrong all you want . Mine is just opinion.

Ramgator19May 09, 2024 02:23AM

  That's insane I do believe Hondas and Tototas are bullet proof

ferragamo7918May 09, 2024 02:47PM

  My 1993 Civic went for 212,000. I REALLY should have kept it.

Ramgator17May 09, 2024 04:02PM

RAMbler20May 08, 2024 04:13PM

  I have a Nissan Frontier

sstrams19May 08, 2024 04:26PM

  I'll be told I'm wrong by Board experts but cars have little value at all as soon as you drive off the lot.

Ramgator24May 09, 2024 02:34AM

  REally I had 2004 and 2009 CRV

ferragamo7930May 06, 2024 06:17PM

Ramgator24May 09, 2024 09:17AM

IowaRam25May 09, 2024 12:55PM

  That CANNOT be good for an engine.

Ramgator17May 09, 2024 03:53PM

  The only thing that might save the engine..
