1. Over 708,000 Honda and Acura vehicles are being recalled to replace their DENSO fuel pumps.

    The pumps have a defect that'll cause them to stop pumping fuel to the engine. You don't need to be a mechanic to see why that's a problem.…

  2. Honda will extend the powertrain warranty on more than 1 million vehicles in the US that continue to have oil dilution problems.

    The 1.5-liter Earth Dreams engine is notorious for gasoline diluting the oil, which triggers warning lights, hurts performance, and creates an awful smell inside the cabin. The extended warranty is available to owners in all 50 states despite Honda’s insistence that the issue only happens in extreme cold weather.…

  3. There’s a fix coming for rising oil levels in the CR-V and Civic, but your eligibility largely depends on where you live.

    Honda’s N60 service campaign will attempt to fix the oil dilution problem with software updates to the transmission control module and electronic fuel injection system. Additionally, drain plug washers and climate control units may be replaced.…

  4. Honda is recalling a small number of 2017-2018 Civics and CR-Vs] because of a loose magnet in the electronic power steering system.

    How bad can a loose magnet be? “Unless it's properly secured, the magnet can dislodge and during a turn where the wheel is as far as it can go, the power steering assist will be applied in the opposite direction.

    Oh. I’m guessing that’s a jarring and unwelcome surprise.

  5. A proposed class-action lawsuit says it’s time for Honda to take responsibility for the well documented problem of fuel entering the crankcase and diluting the oil in the 1.5L Earth Dreams engine.

    The scope of the lawsuit is currently limited to Georgia, but it could have national implications for this growing international problem.…

  6. In the least surprising news imaginable, Honda has been sued for rising oil levels in their engines with Earth Dreams technology.

    The class-action lawsuit says Honda has concealed its knowledge the Earth Dreams engines are prone to defects that cause fuel to enter the engine oil, damaging the bearings and engines permanently. Decreased oil viscosity and premature wear allegedly cause the CR-V SUVs and Civic cars to stall and fail while driving.…

  8. There is something funky about Honda's new Earth Dreams engine, especially in cold-weather climates.

    A growing number of complaints involve high oil levels and the strong smell of gas inside the cabin of the CR-V and, to a lesser extent, the Civic.

    The automaker says the cold climate and short trips cause condensation and excess fuel vapors if the engines don't have time to reach temperatures that would normally burn off the contaminants.

    Honda says excess fuel builds up and stays in the oil pan where it would normally evaporate and recycle through the combustion chamber of the engine.

  9. The 2016 Civic has an electronic parking brake. Oh wait, let me fix that – the 2016 Civic has an electronic parking brake that doesn't always work.

    There, that's better. Or worse (depending on how you look at it). Honda has issued a recall says they aren't aware of any Civics rolling away due to the issue.

    "The automaker says the software can keep the parking brake from working when it is applied immediately after turning off the ignition. However, Honda says the parking will continue to work if it's applied before turning off the ignition."

  10. Have you ever hired a moving company? If you have, you know it's unlikely everything is going to make it to the destination in one piece. I guess we shouldn't be surprised when the same thing happens while moving cars.

    Honda is recalling the 2016 Civic 2-door because the side marker LED lights were damaged during shipping.

    "Honda discovered the problem in May when five cars in Canada were found to have faulty rear side marker lights, then 15 more vehicles were found during an investigation of in-house Civics."

    The recalled Civics were built between 02/23/2016 and 05/20/2016.

  11. The 10th generation Civic is off to a rough start.

    Honda is telling its dealerships to stop selling the 2016 model year until their engines can be fixed. The Civics have problems with the piston pin snap rings, and in some situations the cars were manufactured with missing piston pin snap rings. Owners of 1.5-liter turbocharged cars are not affected and the recall of the 2-liter cars hasn't been officially announced.

    Mechanics are being told to inspect the engine's 4 cylinders using a borescope. There's two issues, however. 1) There aren't enough borescopes to go around and 2) If any problems are found Honda doesn't have replacement parts ready. Other than that, this recall is going swimingly.
