My Accord had a recall a loooooong time ago for some oil seal that they needed to replace. It was no big deal, the dealership did the modifications in about an hour, free of charge of course. :)

I guess even Honda has the occasional recall. Nothing like the 6+ recalls the Ford Focus has had so far though. :p

I got mine in the mail for the accord 2 months after it happened to me. Charged me $650.00 and wouldn't refund me after the recall came. And it was a honda dealership.

I also got the recall notice in the mail yesterday, too bad my ignition isn't stock. What part is it, and should I still have it fixed? Is it in the switch or elsewhere.

Anyone know if I need to take out the aftermarket parts before I get the ignition replaced? Because any aftermarket parts voids the warranty and I don't want honda charging me to get the recall done.

some people waited forever to get it fixed,just bring it to the dealership first then ask them,they have to get the parts in first before they can do anything,and some people waited up to 3 months before the parts came

Is there a limit to how long you could hold off coming into the dealership. I got my notice a couple of weeks ago, what if I don't wanna come in till next year?

Can we do it ourselves...what needs replacing and how much will it cost does anyone have a diagram?

jay.
