Hello,

If you can show that the Honda dealer failed to identify and repair the problem, and that this caused your engine to fail, then the dealer would be liable for your damages. You could sue in small claims court for up to $3,500.00 without a lawyer.

I hope I've answered your question. Please let me know if you require further clarification. And, please provide a positive feedback rating for my answer -- otherwise, I receive nothing for my efforts in your behalf.

Thanks again for using Justanswer!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
