 Description of the problemMy 7 months pregnant wife got stranded 200 miles from home when her alternator decided to die on her resulting in a dead battery. We only have 50,000 miles on this vehicle and an alternator shouldn't die on a vehicle this young in its life span. Luckily a good seminarian decided to give her car a jump start which got her to her destination safely. So since we are out of warranty and needed to have this fixed quickly, we took it to a local trusted shop in the area and the alternator had a faulty part which ended up costing us over $600 dollars to get fixed. We also have had a loud engine rattle noise that occurs on cold startups for the past year and honda has been aware of this issue since 2008 and has not issued a recall and has not come up with a permanent fix. I believe the quality of honda cars has been drastically declining over the past couple of years and i have lost faith in the honda brand and will never buy another honda again.
