Rusty Roof - HONDA RECALL!

Hi

Called into a mates spray paint shop for a quote on colour coding the bumpers on my Type S. He took a look at my roof and said there is a recall on a certain batch of Honda Civic as the windscreen rubber strip cuts the paint.

Off i went to Honda and they said its covered, so a new respray and rubber strip on the roof with a brand new Honda Civic to test drive for a couple of days as a courtesy car.

Below are some pics of my roof in a mess.. ill post some photos of when its all done!

That is quite a bit of rust. I've checked under the seal on mine and it is fine. I may pop some waxoyl under it at some point just to seal it completely.

I did notice it before, just thought there ain't nothing i can do that don't involve a respray. Its strange how Honda wont say anything unless you point it out to them.

Had my 06's roof resprayed by Honda and it was nowhere near as bad as this on.

How have you gone on with this CDTI ?

Mine's a 2007, has signs of it but nowhere near as bad as the pictures above.

It's not been serviced at Honda since the first service so I'm not holding out much hope to be honest but I'll take it to Honda sometime soon and see what they say.

That rust looks like it will have crept to the underside of the roof, how are they going to fix it ?

had mine done 2 weeks before the extended corrosion warranty ran out, it only had 4 stamps because I have serviced it since I have owned it.

No bother, phone them dropped it off, they photographed my service book. I took my receipts for honda service parts I have used for the just in case but they didnt ask. gave me a jazz and picked it up 1 week later all done with another 1 year warranty for the work.

just wish they did the same with the clutches

If your car doesn't have full service history and had the corrison check each yeah they can get out of doing it under warranty as it states this needs to be done. That's what I got at first but after keep pestering and threatening to go to trading standards they backed down as I brought my car from Honda as a full service history car, but Honda uk didn't like the fact the first service was carried out by ABP and they hadn't done the corrison check.
