Question about 2006 Honda Element
Keep a heads up on your Heater Core if you own a 2006 Element. Mine was bad. I mean....>WAY BAY! When they took it out it was rotted. Honda knows it is an issue but is keeping quiet about it. They, eventually, did fix my problem under warrenty. Also, when the heater core explodes, it will crack the windsheild the same way the windsheilds were cracking in the previous years of the Element. It will be covered under the warrenty as well. But, you will have to really push them to honor it.
Sounds like they are giving u the run around the way the did me. I solved it by calling Honda of America Corporate and had an investigation started on the dealership. They paid attention then! Next thing I went straight to the owner of the dealership and told him what was going on in my own words. i was not confrontational with him and because of that...he hooked me up. fixed it ...and fast...and replaced my widow with a polarized and MUCH more superior windsheild whch he personally paid for from his own checking account. The mechanics are just doing what they are told and have no power to make large decisions like that. The owner wants to keep you happy so u keep coming back so he can keep his number 1 status. So, call the Honda corp. (Be nice to everyone so they know u are sincere because the manager of service is going to badmouth you. And do the same when u speak to the owner. they will bend over backwards for you and you will be like me and continue to patronize that dealership. Hope the advice helps. While I wanted to scream while it was happening....expecially since every photo I found of Elements who had cracked windsheild proved mine to be textbook, they make no money on warrenty work. So, get proof to show your case is not the fluck and you will be triumphant. turned out the companies they had make both the heater chores and the windsheild made inferior products.
