Failure Date: 09/23/2013

I was driving my car and my transmission started slipping. I keep up with all of the scheduled maintenance for this car. I got the transmission rebuilt and now less then 3 months later the car is starting to jerk again and the drive light on the dash is starting to blink. I also have this error code that won't go away saying there is something wrong with the fuel tank. I got the gas knob changed and the error goes away but when you hook the computer up to it, the code still comes up. The air bag light also comes on and off when it wants to.

I have had so many corrosion issues with this car, it is structurally dangerous. The car has 160,000 miles on it but has been kept in a garage and has had the under carriage frequently washed since I live in the northeastern us. In the last 2 years I have had to replace both the brake and gas lines do to corrosion. The gas line ruptured during a drive. Fortunately there was no fire. The gas tank rusted through and was replaced. It was leaking for some time. The leak was near the half way mark and only leaked when over half full and during driving or going up hill. Fortunately we did not have a fire. I just found out the front sub frame is completely rotted out and will not pass inspection this year. Body rust is minimal and normal for age and the northeast winters. The clear coat is pealing off everywhere. I am very disappointed with my first and probably only Honda. Looking back, I am very lucky that the car didn't catch fire and kill someone.

My car started leaking gas. When I took it to the dealer, where it was bought and has had all of its service, they told me that the gas tank would need to be replaced and had rusted through. This doesn't seem like normal wear and tear for a 10-year old, dealer maintained car that has never been in an accident. But Honda could provide no other reason for the tank to have begun leaking.
