Major bump post......
Car: Honda Civic 2006 1.8 EX
Due to finance and other issues I did not go to Honda at the time of the last post but just went yesterday and collected my car today.
I wanted that 'closure' so I went to Honda, this time they said is was £95 to investigate. I described the problems in which the satnav worked on and off, stated it was updating then went off, map sometimes freezes etc etc and most of the time it didn't load (so no display).
A new problem which just happened last week was with the CD player, when I put a cd in it shows up as disc error
I was hesitant in taking it to the dealer by hearing many stories than having a personal bad experience.... this would be the second time
I got a call around noon yesterday....
Honda: we will have to send the satnav unit and the display off
Me: but what it wrong with it?
Honda: we don't know
Me: I don't believe their is anything wrong with the display I believe it is just the unit
Honda: well we don't know
Me: so what about the cd player
Honda: we will send it off
Me: what is wrong with it, maybe just clean the lens?
Honda: we will send the satnav off
Me: no the cd player, did you look into that?
Honda: what is wrong with the cd player?
Me: disc error!
Honda: yes we will have to send that off too
Me: did you even look into it, because it sounds like you didn't
Honda: let me talk with the technician and I will call you back
Later received a call and the guy said, their is nothing displayed on the screen for the satnav and the cd player says disc error, we will need to send it off, we don't know how much the repair cost will be, we will have to wait until it is repaired which may take 2 to 3 weeks. I said so you want £95 for you telling me what I exactly told you in the morning?!
After a few minutes the guy said okay we won't charge you the investigation charge so do you want us to send it off, I said you must have an idea of the repair cost and they kept saying no, than eventually said a unit may cost £600 (just for 1 unit repair and they want to send the 3)
I said no thanks I will collect my car in the morning which I did.
So I have just noticed two things, the time has changed on the small display showing (right side of the satnav display) and the fuel meter is kinda off, yesterday it stated 56 miles with the needle in a certain position, and now says 100 miles with the needle in the same position
My first question is how did the time change by about 6 hours if there is no satnav display to change it? Is there a way of changing this, maybe they done a major 'reset' or something or are they lying and fiddled around with a working satnav?
Second, what's the deal with the fuel metre? Is that a normal 'glitch'?
And last but not least, still have the issue with the satnav and now cd player.... any ideas, or technicians that can fix it?
