They're too embarrassed to tell you
Should of bought Hondas
Hate to be the one to say this dude but Honda isn't an exception anymore. BMW had an issue with the connecting rods on early S1000RR's, Porsche still doesn't admit this but the main seal on every model (except the Cayenne IIRC) would go after 20-30k mi...nowadays sh1t is built by accountants to hit price points, not engineers to break records.
I had a CBR250R for just 5 months...for a reason,
My CBR600RR originally had an issue with the exhaust valve causing an FI light and the bike going into limp mode; dealer wouldn't replace the header section, yet replaced the servo motor twice; eventually I got a servobuddy, full exhaust instead of the planned slip-on, and tuned it.
My old '12 Civic Si was a brand new piece of absolute sh1t so if anyone questions the negative reviews it received here's my answer; that wasn't even built by accountants, it was "assembled" by interns in the accountant department...it had the CRV's 2.4L I4, 6 speed from a TSX IIRC, and an interior from what felt like a knockoff Lego set...I'm guessing all the real R&D went into that stupid i-MID thing; 3 ways to inform the fuel level but no coolant temp gauge, tires were $800 and might, might, get 20k mi. per set, the oil was a special $100 blend only available through Honda (at least then) every 3k mi, and using any other would void the warranty...the TC was dim witted at best, blind spots were horrendous, road noise was like a vintage beetle and for those that haven't driven one, put a cooking pot over your head like a helmet and bang it with random crap...and after properly positioning the seat the top of the steering wheel blocked my view of the speedometer...also the weight distribution may literally have been worse than an old school beetle...the understeer still haunts me.
It's not about embarassment...it's about earnings per share.
Oh I almost forgot that they extended the warranty on the paint because in some spots the clear coat goes milky...
The dealer had to send in a video of the bike at8K RPM. They had to see a certain amount of smoke, mine didn't have what they wanted.
It was burning a quart of oil every 700 street miles, and by lunch at the track. I never owned a bike that burned any oil, let alone that much. I haven't owned a Honda street bike since they screwed me.
That's a lot...the consensus on that issue was the cylinder head right?
Yep, eight year old tech is much safer.
+1...imo there's no rule of thumb anymore; I had an '05 Subaru Legacy that was awesome and also the 1st year of a new generation.
The 1st gen NSX is good imo, as is the RSX type-s, and imo I liked the AP1 S2000's better.
That's some bull****. I've heard Honda is a bitch about warranty situations but I didn't know it was that bad.

I took in the Si in once for something that was under warranty and the guy literally said to me "it's just a Civic"
What if I told you the NC700X basically has the engine from an Insight that was just chopped in half to make it a parallel twin?
