  1. We watched season three of Sherlock. Tonight we start season 4.
  2. No the car doesn't die. I am able to keep driving. I have steering, brakes, cruise control etc. The screens go black, much like your computer does when you have computer problems. So, when things go dark, I don't have a speedometer, tachometer, any gauges etc. I also don't have radio, navigation, etc. This car does not have any self driving electronics so that's not an issue.
  3. One more question. I've been doing some more reading on this problem and it looks like most of the people who experienced this have had to obtain legal council to get the issue resolved. My question is, how do I find a good lawyer to get involved with this? My area has a LOT of ambulance chasers but that doesn't make them good at consumer law. I don't know anyone who has had this issue so I can't ask for a referral.
  4. A software update might fix it: https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2016/SB-10075685-2280.pdf That only applies to the infotainment system. My entire dash goes black. With my model, they changed the system from wired to fiber-optic. The dealership told me the second time I took it in that they had problems with the M.O.S.T. (Media Oriented Systems Transport) system and had to wait for new wiring harnesses to come in so they could replace it. They did so on the next visit. Thank you all for the great info. I knew I could count on you to help. I
  5. Uno and I have had several Mazda's and loved them. The primary reason for buying the Honda is because it was larger than the CX9, which is the largest Mazda. I may look at them as well.
  6. Thanks, LL. Apparently this is a known problem because I received a letter from the manufacturer extending the warranty on this specific electronic subsystem to 60K miles. I will use that in my conversation with the lemon law people as well. Uno posed an interesting question. He asked if Honda would offer to swap your car out for a new 2021 or 2022, same trim level etc., would you take it? I'm not sure. I don't think I can trust that model at this point. I would rather have the cash payout and go elsewhere. Thoughts?
  7. I read Doc's link on the Lemon Law. Thank you. I'm going to push that with the manufacturer next week when the dealership calls. Yes it is very frightening. Last weekend, I was passing through downtown Orlando. The nav system had me get off the highway. I thought it might be routing me around an accident. Then the dash crashed. I called Uno in a panic begging him to get me out of here because it was not a safe area to be in. I don't know Orlando very well and there was a lot of construction in the area so it was not easy to find my way back to the highway. When I got home
  8. I didn't want this to turn into a manufacturers bashing thread. Let's not go there, please. It's a Honda Pilot, Touring trim.
  9. I have had my car for two and a half years now. I purchased it new in 2019. In that time, I have had it back to the dealership 4 or 5 times for some major electrical issues. It's most severe issue is the infotainment system and dash will go completely black. I won't have a radio, navigation, know what speed I'm going, nothing at all. After about 30 seconds, the computer re-boots and it all comes back. I dropped it off at the dealership Thursday night because I had the "black dash" happen to me last weekend. I also had a maintenance notice come up so it needed that as well.
  10. Another one, a bit more on the humorous side.... Uno invited one of his buddies and his squeeze to join us for a USC home game. I'm always the designated driver so it's not an issue. WWWEEEEeeeelllllll If you know anything about USC, it's in about the worst part of Los Angeles possible. Seriously. We got to the car OK and were trying to get off the streets and onto the freeway as fast as possible. I, not familiar with LA, asked which way to go. Uno told me to turn right. At the same time, Greg said turn left. I turned right. At the next intersection, Uno tells me to turn
  11. I have a couple of incidents. Driving home from my shift at the station in the Kansas City (MO) winter. Taking a state road because the interstate hadn't been built yet. It was dark, the road was icy and it was snowing like the dickens. I was driving rather slowly, considering the conditions. As I came around a bend in the highway, I saw a set of headlights sweep in front of me. Some clown took the bend too fast and started to spin. I did the best I could to keep my big van under control while avoiding the car. I didn't make it and slid off the road into the snowbank. A gen
  12. My mother used to tell this story about me. I was raised bi-lingual German. My parents taught me English first to make sure I had a complete understanding before trying German. Well, my mom was baking in the kitchen one day. I couldn't have been more than two or three. I reached for the pie she had removed from the oven and mom wagged her finger at me. I said "Heiss" (hot). Mom couldn't believe what she heard so she said "what did you say"? "Heiss". Mom still couldn't believe it so she asked "what did you say" again. I replied "Damn hot". She knew where I got that from.
