I don't care, **** this truck, **** honda, and **** my dealer. I'm not planning on keeping the truck 15 months or 12 months. If i can't drive through a foot of water, I bought the wrong ******* truck.

Besides, did I ask anyone about my warranty? No, because I don't care. Warranties are only as good as the company who backs them.
And see, In my opinion thats the problem right there. Honda marketed that truck to make it seem like you're buying a Humvee.. No, Not that ------y "H2" or "H3" I mean a HUMVEE! Simply put, they constantly tout their 290hp (193# Tq) V6 Vtak engine can tow the same payload as like, a 1/2 ton Toyota/Ford/Nissan/Dodge/GM product can and I honestly believe thats simply not even close to the case.

Maybe they should have put a little more R&D into where the engine gets its air from, and a little less in "lockable bed storage?"

Sorry you're having the problems, and I think your insurance company is ******* tarded for just handing over more money without question to these bozos! Really, I'd find who the machine shop was, and avoid ever using either of them again in the future. Thats some pretty shitty and very shady work going on there. Look at the bright side, I've noticed the resale on those things is always way too high, so you'll likely get your moneys worth from it when its time to sell.

Maybe I'm just one sided bias due to me complete and total hatred of honda but I'd never buy one of those.

It's like 245hp or something, and they tout the towing capacity as being less than a Tacoma (5000lb vs 6500lbs)

It'll tow 5000lbs, I pulled a Scion tC on a tandem axle 1000 miles.. Just don't follow a Focus through a water crossing, unless you want to be embarassed and spend about 6g.

Tards are everywhere. The motor is their fault. They should of found anything that is off. And check into posting complaints in the paper. That is shabby work. If ins pays I wouldn't loose sleep. I wouldn't use that motor either.
Cusing and yelling loses your battle. Stay calm and point out facts next time.
Sorry I have to say it.....Drum role.... Should of bought Chevy or Ford. They will run over 200,000 miles with a V8. And parts are cheap. Upgrades are endless.
Besides, they just make me horney.

Only chevy or ford I'd own would be a diesel.. and then I could have a truck fall apart around the engine.
