That's the main reason I put in the speedo healer.. Not for the MPH, but the odometer.. I wonder if we could do the same on the '06 Hybrid???Arn Butt Bill said:I sent the tv station an email explaining that our bikes do it too. I have over a 4,000 mile discrepency on my odometer right now.
Resale smeesale, right?
Georgia has specific laws regarding "diminished resale value" for motor vehicles.laen said:I dont think this could ever apply to Goldwings since their warranty is unlimited mileage within a certain year span.
Maybe you are right and maybe not. Around 1990 I was involved with a class auction lawsuit that was against an American gun manufacturer. It dealt with faulty barrels on one of their over/under shotguns. I had one I bought used. I sent in my serial numbers like they requested thinking it was a waste of time and low and behold I did get a check for over 135.00 if I remember correctly. So do what you want. If I ever become affected and it does not cost me more than the item may be worth I would think about complyiing with it. JMHO>>>beastie said:I posted this about a month ago.
I got the letter from Honda since I have 3 affected cars.
I threw the letter away. The only ones who will get anything out of this are the two main plaintiffs and the lawyers.
Bill, where can one find that list of states?Arn Butt Bill said:Georgia has specific laws regarding "diminished resale value" for motor vehicles.laen said:I dont think this could ever apply to Goldwings since their warranty is unlimited mileage within a certain year span.
This will boil down to whether or not motorcycles are considered motor vehicles; in all but 13 states, they're not.
Charlie Crist might manage to get that changed in Florida at least...
AMEN TO THAT!IR Harry said:How many of us on this board have had any real damage because of the speedo error? I appears we represent an American cross section - wanting something for nothing, howling at something that makes no real difference. Way too much spare time. Bothers you? Unload it and get on with life.
Why do you think Honda accepted this settlement with the response saying it was for "customer satisfaction"? Of course it was the cheap way out. That way the lawyers get their pocket lined but Honda is not stuck with a major recall expense. If the lawyers had pressed for a recall and correction of the odometers, you can bet your sweet bippie that Honda would have fought it with teeth and toe nails.

what I call... WARRANTY PROBLEM... Honda sold the units .. got the money for them.. now its time for them to step up and fix their goof up..
heck with extending the warranty.. thats the "EL CHEAPO" fix..
Ummmm..., and what is it that they're supposed to fix? A 2-4% odo error is fairly trivial and well within industry requirements. This isn't something that's broken..., it's just the way it is. If you think of the number of things you do when you're driving your vehicle that could affect the mileage reading, the manufacturer's error is the least of the concerns. In fact, there's always been a circulating rumor that the government actually likes motor vehicle builder to have an error that reads over. This helps to keep some folks a wee bit below the posted speed limit.cosmic_chariot said:Well.... IMHO.. Honda should have to repair the affected units... thats what I call... WARRANTY PROBLEM...
