OT: Help with DD problem
Well folks, I'm at the end of my rope and I won't bore you with the long sordid tale,but I've been chasing a problem with my 2000 Honda Accord for about 2-3 months.
The problem is that up-hill under slight acceleration or maintaining even speed, the vehicle lurches. Honda has replaced the tranny and torque-converter under warranty. For the longest time they were "unable to reproduce the issue". Friday, after 3 months, I had the district service manager ride along with me. After about 1.5 miles he pronounced the problem as "classic lean-surge" which he claims is typical of these models. He then proceeded to tell me that the vehicle is performing to spec, but I'm just overly attuned to it because I've been chasing this problem too long. Bull$hit I say. I've driven this car for 2 years and NEVER had this problem previously.
So, can anybody help me out on this thing?
Honda is now hands-off after this (wonder of all wonders it is now out of warranty, since I've been waiting). American Honda has had extremely poor/unprofessional service, and has been slow in answering. Getting names or escalation points has been like pulling teeth outta chickens. I'm really trying to be reasonable here, I just want to drive the same quality car I originally paid for, is that asking too much?
Thoughts, comments, ideas?
I'll tell you, I own 2 Accords (wife has one too), and I'm ready to sell them both and never buy another Honda product for the rest of my days, based on this experience. [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img]
