    Hi
    So I test drove a 8th generation Accord about a week ago - Full Honda main dealer history.
    The Sunroof was rusty (as expected).

    I told the Honda Main dealer that this is a common issue.
    Honda dealer says "We've never heard of this issue before"
    I advised this a KNOWN common issue.
    Honda dealer still insists they have NEVER heard of this issue.

    What's going on?
    Do they all say this?

    Thanks

    You need to see if you can get hold of the TSB and take that to them.

    Personally, if this car was for sale at that Honda dealer, Id walk away. Either they don't know what they are talking about or lying to get a sale. Both huge warning flags in my eyes

    So my experience, apparently, it's not a one off.

    chickyb #14 comments "they denied all knowledge of issues with corrosion" the salient part

    "I've just recently acquired an Accord which is in the VIN range mentioned above, noticed the corrosion while giving the car a good polish. Nearest dealer is Phoenix Honda in Stirling and when I called them yesterday about the Service Bulletin they denied all knowledge of issues with corrosion on the MY09 Accord. Its booked in for them to have a look in a few weeks and think they are going to take photo's etc and pass them on to Honda. I even offered to give the the TSB Reference and they were not interested."

    Alas, for many people, short term £/$/€'s come first. :money:
    Honour, morals and integrity are for fools like us! :brickwall:
