Hey Jeff

It seems like a lot of folks post in here to find out about -GASP!- breakdowns of their Hondas. Some of these breakdowns are rather common -such as clutch springs on GSRs, bad ACs on 95 Accords, etc...-

Perhaps TOV should set up an area where the most common Hondacar failures are posted.

Well, would you rather have a general Repair and Maintenance forum or would you rather be discussing these issues in the specific car forum that we already have?

Let's hear some more feedback.

Tuan: Genral Repair/Maintenance sounds like a good idea.

A General Repair forum would be useful because it would apply accross all Hondacars, Often times the same problem may appear in several models. For example, the recent clutch problems in a Prelude that were identical to the GSRs, poor AC performance in 95s Accords and TLs and the current thread about door locks.

OTOH, not balkanizing the forums would mean more chaff to waddle through. The redeeming grace is that since Hondas don't break that much the forum wouldn't be that huge.

After thinking about the 'maintenance" forum, that might be best left to the model forums? The gist of this request is to best crossreference model failures, not everyday maintenace issues.

I can create this forum for a while as a test and we'll see how it does. If it doesn't generate enough traffic, we'll have to remove it or revamp it.

At some point I will be implementing my plan to have model specific sections as a permanent part of the site - this sections would serve as a "catch-all" repository of information on the various honda/acura models. Specs, pricing, photos, videos, etc... would be contained here. I would also like to have FAQs and a section that would catalog the problem areas that plague the various model years.

We'd probably like to have some volunteers for each model section to help maintain them.

In the mean time, feel free to deposit such info in the Repair/Maint. forum

Well, with the exception of the current mess with the CL/TL transmissions, we hope that not too much data goes into these forums, huh?
