2016 Honda Fit Owner Comments

problem #2

Jul 012016

Fit LX

  • CVT transmission
  • 4,000 miles


I bought a brand new 2016 Honda Fit in November 2015. In July 2016, I noticed a piece of insulation from the engine was missing. I didn't think much of it until I had my car serviced in April 2017. The Honda dealer where I bought the car said it was mice. They cleaned out a nest, and I went home, which is 3 hrs from the Santa Rosa, CA dealer. The next morning I noticed a lot of new damage, so I put 2 snap traps in the engine compartment.

I live in town, and am completely frustrated with this problem. I am 69 years old and have never had this happen with any other car even when I lived in the woods. I feel Honda needs to take responsibility and repair any problems that may arise from this.

Honda has known about their use of soy coated wires for years. They have declined to cover under warranty. There is no good reason that our insurance should be used (with a $500.00 comprehensive deductible). The damage to the wiring is a well know issue due to the use of soy covering. Honda uses a rodent repellent coated tape to cover the wires they replace the chewed ones with but charge for the tape. This issue is, in my opinion, similar to the recent "air bag" recalls; it took years to force the manufacturers to pay for the recall. Honda and other affected auto manufactures should either cover this under the new car warranty or stop using the soy covered wires in their auto production. To make the repair cost and time lost without the vehicle the problem of the buyer is absurd, with the insurance companies and the consumer paying the costs of a well known and avoidable problem. A class action lawsuit is in order. The issues has been known for years... there is no way to know if the rodents chewed the wires while the car while at the dealership or after the car was bought by us. This is another example of corporations NOT taking responsibility for design or manufacturing flaws.
