Recall Alert: 2012-2013 Honda Fit


Honda is issuing a voluntary recall of 43,782 model-year 2012 and 2013 versions of the Fit hatchback due to a problem with the electronic stability system; only Sport trim models are being recalled.

According to Honda, the electronic stability system in the affected vehicles doesn't comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Standards regarding yaw rates (how far a car tilts during a turn). "Honda is not aware of any related crashes or injuries," it said in a statement.

Honda will notify affected owners starting in mid-May and dealers will reprogram the system's software for free. Owners can call Honda at 800 999-1009 (option 4) for more info.

I need the price.


Honda has declined reimbursement for the Ignition switch interlock I had to replace for $800.00. Honda's recall campaign indicates that the key must be removable from the ignition switch with the transmission in gear. Apparently my interlock lever, which was broken, made the key unable to be inserted into the ignition once it was removed, thus leaving me stranded in a parking lot at night. However it appears to me that rather it was unable to be inserted or removed they still have a faulting Ignition switch. Not that I am an expert, but I have never heard of this problem before. Furthermore, this is not an isolated incident. There are 100's of accounts of this situation on social media related to several Honda models with most cases for 2000 to 2003 Odysseys.

The fact is Honda is producing an inferior product and hiding behind it's bogus customer service. I am a customer who feels cheated by the Honda company. Once again, Honda has found a way to cheat a customer. I will never buy a HONDA AGAIN!!!!
