Thanks for the link.

Mine appears to be made in 04/01 (according to the vin tag) so it looks like mine is ok.

You're welcome, but the thanks should go to PITVTX as I saw his post on the General board and copied it over here as it is a tech related problem. 8)

I bet a car tire would void your claim. nojoke
You couldn't be more wrong, there is no contest to a safety recall. It's not at hondas discretion any longer. And why was your post even necessary? I sense a case of opticalrectumitis here.
