I just checked my VIN and luckily mines not affected.
With rampant identity theft these days, unless I have to, I do not put out anything on the internet, especially numbers, that can be traced back to me.Nothing personal about a VIN number. Anyone can just walk up and read it if they want.
1.) Not paying attention.Why are some people so eager to give out personal information?
Software update is much easier, if not, cheaper than replacing the part itself. Just imagine with all the CVT recalls and they do go on that route (replace the actual part or reinforce it), they'd be losing a lot of money! What would be funny is if they did that (and completed everything), only to learn later on that they should've just done a software update along the way.So my dealership called me on Sept 28 and notified me about the recall regarding the CVT. Made the appointment for that same week on Oct 2nd.;Service rep told me it would take about 4 hours to do the job but got the car back in only two. Honestly I don't feel any difference on how the car drives but I wonder wouldn't it have been better for honda to actually replace parts or to reinforce them long with the software update and not just the software update?
Wondering, what sort of sales story were you presented, with regard to how the CTV drove?I'll have to check my vin number when I get home.
And with how CVT drives, meh.
I didn't buy this car for "sport" reasons.
So I went today to another dealer I know everyone at and it took like 30 minutes. I saw them hook he laptop up to the car so they did actually do it. Idk what that guy is talking about two hours. The car maybe feels smoother who knows. Turn off Econ though because the shifting isn't too good on it in the city. I would change the cvt fluid every 20-25k miles even though the dealer says 30k just an extra precaution. You want to keep that fluid new
