remotes not working properly. Not connecting to car (unlocking, starting) consistently and trunk not sensing remote. A fix has not been found. Battery replacement was the only attempt made. The problem was observed and recognized. Update, July 2017: Honda is clueless. I'll have to go through a long process of analysis, diagnostics, incremental trials... so living with it. Until I get really bored or motivated

After driving car for 60 days, it suddenly had no electricity throughout vehicle. Battery was checked as were fuses and all came back in good order. My mechanic eliminated the starter and alternator and doubted that it was the neutral safety switch. I went back to the dealer where I purchased the car (used lot) and they took TOTAL control of the situation. The salesman who sold me the car sent a tow truck and just took care of it as if it were his personal car. Toyota of Newnan's service is fantastic, but service after the sale is even better! The problem turned out to be the ground wire leading from the engine bay to the cabin had "gone bad" is what I was told and it was replaced at no charge. My car runs just as it should once again. Thanks Toyota of Newnan!

Recall stage 2 of 2. Battery monitor sensor replaced by TSB notice and recall. The new sensor monitor is water proof, the old one was not and would short out and cause a fire. Kinda funny that the sensor that monitors the battery to prevent fires... causes a fire itself.

I had earlier mentioned the possibility of the beginnings of a rod knock since I had heard the beginning characteristics sounds generally made by faulty connecting rods- slight knocking on both cold and hot start-up. Finally, with about 10,000 miles on the odometer the dealer agreed to every placement of the V-6 short block. Repair completed at dealer cost, with about 10,000 miles on odometer no problems since .

My windshield cracked from the bottom left corner (driver side) behind the bottom trim on the window towards the upper right corner (passenger side) one crack only. Was fine when parked, windshield was great, two days later get in car and there it is. Seemed to be a pretty obvious stress crack as there were no chips or anything but after fighting and fighting with Honda they will not cover it. Want 600 to repair.
