Car died 10 miles from home after parking it on a cold, rainy night. Had to be towed. Insurance paid for all but $20 of the tow. Dealer said battery was dead. At the time, the car had under 36,000 miles on it. Dealer said battery life depends partly on age, and it's a 2013 car so that battery was at least 4 years old. (And it never had had any problems starting before this.) He insisted on putting in a 100-month Honda battery. That's all he had in stock, he claimed. I think I was ripped off, but I needed my car back so I paid.

Repair not sucessful, light came on again the next day on cold start. Check engine and Trac control lights on one day after previous repair. Same P0302 code.

Repair unsuccessful, light came back on in one day. Took car back to dealership for check engine light, they found spark plug loose from previous valve adjustment. Torqued plugs to spec, cleared code. Light has stayed off for over 1,000 miles and two months so I think it is fixed for good

Audible ticking sound can be heard from the engine, particularly when the engine is cold. The frequency of the ticking is directly related to RPM. Mechanics suspect that engine needs a valve height adjustment, but at the time of the servicing the ticking could not be heard (probably because the engine warmed up during the drive to the shop), so no repair was attempted. Will make plans to leave car with dealer overnight so they can start it the following day to hear the engine when

Follow-up repair from previous diagnosis. Engine made a ticking noise that was directly related to RPMs. Noise became more noticeable and persistent over the past few months. A valve height adjustment and spark plug replacement was performed. Plastic paneling on the inside of the trunk (hatch) door had become partially detached from the metal exterior portion of the door due to one or some of the plastic clips becoming broken or dislodged. The missing/broken plastic clips were replaced and the interior plastic panel was reattached to the metal exterior. However, after the car had been returned to me, the entire plastic panel detached from the door when I tried to close the trunk door, suggesting that the panel had not been reattached properly in the shop. I reattached the panel, but now the panel rattles/squeaks more than it did prior to this repair being attempted. I believe that there are still some clips that may be missing.

The cars engine has been severely acting up for the pat 7 months--feels like bad gas. While sitting at idle, the engine stutters, jumps, and hiccups almost to the point of stalling out. I have researched the issue and it is known to plague the car. Many say it is an ignition coil/spark plug issue. I took it to the local Honda dealership...they had it for 3 days...and couldn't "replicate the problem." Uhhhhh what? I encounter this problem every single time I'm in the car and your "experts" can't find it? They said there were no computer error messages, yet a 3 year old would be able to feel the issue sitting in the car. Ridiculous. Needless to say I won't be taking my vehicle there again (several other issues occurred including dealer gouging my steering wheel during the test drives and blaming me for it) Issue still persists in my daily driving. Dealing with this crap is really getting old.

Dealer ordered parts and I took car back to have repair done. Tech replaced all 4 coils. Have driven the car for 4 days now and so far, car seems to be operating normally. 2 mos later: car has not duplicated issue. Appears to be fixed.
