This Is Why I Like Honda's!!!!!

Took my 05 SE in today...my tranny was slipping n the fluid smelled burnt...so I asked em to check it out...here's the list so far.
Tranny is smoked.
Tranny computer or what ever isnt working right.
Both front wheel bearings are toast.
Motor is ticking/knocking slightly.
Valve cover leaks oil around cap.
Now... here's the kicker...THE CAR HAS 11,700 MILES ON IT!!!!!
WTF seriously...its freaking rediculous...

You have to be over 25 for the dealer to give you a loaner if you car (under warranty) needs a repair??

yea you have to be 25 if you get a rental from the insurance agency, but if you have a warranty the dealer should have to give you a loaner no matter what.

Honda's aren't as bad as VW for reliability, sorry about your car.
