I purchased a Honda Odyssey (2012) back in April of 2012. I have had to take it to the shop numerous times for many issues since i purchased the new car (listed below). I have been at the service shop more times in the past year (for a new car!) than I have ever been for my old Geo Prizm that has over 200K miles.
Is there any legal recourse in addressing my problems? The rattling noise has been the biggest issue for me that has not been resolved. They have told me that I shouldn't worry about it and if anything happens, and since I have raised this issue multiple times, they may repair it for free even after the warranty - assuming any future issue that is potentially or may be related to the noise. But I am concerned if it could potentially be a safety issue, and I personally do not drive the van anymore because it really bothers me when i hear the noise. My wife mostly drives it with the my children.
-Alignment 3 times (fixed on the 3rd time)
-brake pad wear resurface 2 x
-Rattling noise 4x (service dept. state they can't hear it when test driving
) - still remains "unfixed"
-Battery died, needed jump start few months after purchase
-trunk squeaks when opening (have not taken to repair yet)
Now, I will make an appointment for the noise coming from AC.
