REVISION SUMMARY

Under REQUIRED MATERIALS, the oil was changed to Full Synthetic Engine Oil, P/N 08798-9063.

 

BACKGROUND

The oil control rings may become clogged with carbon deposits. These deposits restrict the ability to scrape and return oil from the cylinder walls to the crankcase, which can result in misfires, engine cylinder damage, engine cylinder head damage, and/or engine oil consumption that may exceed customer expectations.

To increase customer confidence, American Honda is extending the warranty on the engine related to engine oil consumption to 8 years from the original date of purchase with no mileage limit.

The warranty extension does not apply to any vehicle that has ever been declared a total loss or sold for salvage by a financial institution or insurer, or has a branded or similar title under any state’s law.
