American Honda Motor Company (Motorcycle) Unfair Denial of Warranty on New TRX420TM ATV Torrance, California
*Consumer Comment: Master Mechanic Jim here, Aftermrket Oil Filter makes TRANSMISSION lock up, BULLSHIT.
RANCHER VIN: 1HFTE3404A4300893
Unfair Denial of Warranty
Purchase date: 10/22/2011
On 7/16/2011 the transmission locked up, less than 9-months after purchased. I took it to Donelson Cycles in St. Ann, MO to be repaired since it was still under warranty.
I was told by the service manager that their Honda Rep denied any warranty assistance. I then called Honda Customer Support and was told they would investigate further and get back with ne within a couple days.
On 7/27/2011 I received a call from Honda Customer Support and was told Honda
Warranty assistance was denied because I used an aftermarket oil filter.
Being a loyal Honda consumer for many years, I was very disappointed and surprised at
their decision to deny any repair assistance. I consulted with an attorney and he suggested I try and resolve this issue prior to retaining his service to move forward with legal action.
This is a direct violation of the MagnusonMoss Warranty Act.
I would be satisfied if Honda honored their warranty or at least offered
