Check engine light on about a week after service. Advise from dealer to drive vehicle and fill tank a couple of times and light should go off. Result 1 month later light still on. In for service at dealer reveals code p0420. They (dobbs Honda tucson az) are saying that the catalytic converter as well as an O2 sensor need to be replaced cost $1,200. Vehicle has 95k miles. This exceeds the 80k emission control warranty. However, I this case these items had been replaced at 75k miles in may of 2004 but it is now December 2005 and the vehicle is past the 1yr/12k miles repair warranty. I have appealed this problem to dealership management and the are talking to american Hondas western region manager as I am writing this, so I don't know if they will decide to cover the repair or not, but what about the next time. After reading various Honda forums it appears that there has been problems with this on other models as well (accords). Please consider asking Honda to extend the warranty on these emission devices and figure out some solution to prevent recurrence of the problems. Thanks.
