On what do you base your prediction? The defect is a valid one and is thoroughly documented. Due to the type of engine (direct injection), under certain operating conditions raw gasoline is sprayed onto the cylinder walls and drains down past the piston rings into the crankcase. The problem is exacerbated by the extended oil change interval as dictated by the ECU. And Honda is aware of the problem, as evidenced by the recall bulletin.All of this only has any consequences if this lawsuit is won in court. I predict it will lose, so it's just a piece of printed paper.
I have taken my own 2016 Civic to my personal mechanic and watched as he drained a full gallon of fluid (completely filling a one gallon bucket) from the oil pan during one oil change. Keep in mind, there is only 3.7 quarts of oil called for in the book, including what's in the filter. So I know I was getting fuel in my oil (my mechanic is a witness and I have pictures to present as evidence in court). And that oil smelled very strongly of gasoline. That's when I decided to start changing my oil every 3333 mile (3 times every 10K miles) just to eliminate any possibility of the oil ever getting too diluted.
So I repeat my question - on what do you base your prediction that the lawsuit will lose?
