    Brakes failed at stop sign. Fender bender car in front of me.
    Ticketed for accident. Next day, dealer found air in ABS Modulator.
    Cost of repair: $1,400. Two days to repair due to part having to be
    flown in from California. Honda refuses to acknowledge low milage
    rule and said warranty expired. Thank you Honda.. :(
