    better to have these problems occur now while your under warranty rather than years down the road when you aren't covered. they will take care of you :thumbsup: and if not whoop some ass

    I'm not ignoring it.

    I don't think its a game changer though.

    It's probably a software or sensor issue, they'll fix it under warranty and all will be good.

    If it was like Subaru's that eat bearings or head gaskets every couple oil changes, I'd be more concerned.

    it could be worse i guess, popping out of gears like the 06-08 si, or automatic transmission failing in pretty much every v6 in every honda made before 2005, or engine blowing virtually every race withe their f1 engine.

    The first two occurred over a long period of time tho, not under 100 miles.

    my point is no car maker is immune to issues, its how they handle it is what I care about.

    I have not experienced this issue yet but I will keep an eye out for anything odd. I have 220 miles on my CTR so far and will have many more by the end of the weekend.

    Thanks for sharing this information!

    I have this same issue at 600 miles, and I just dropped off at the dealer this morning. I'll let everyone know what the issue was once it's all fixed

    So the dealer has resolved the issue with my CTR as well...and the issue was the same as above. They ordered a whole new Engine Room Wiring Harness. Unfortunate that it is going to take so long, but glad they found the issue and nothing was seriously wrong.

    Do they know what was wrong with the old wiring?

    One of the wires (not sure which one, I'll ask when I pick it up after repair) was very loose and one light pull on that particular wire and it came right out of the harness.

    seems like a bad production batch, more than a few review cars were affected also. Guess I'll just wait for later model. Who knows how long the wiring is backordered.

    I too had this issue and only after 2 days of driving. Took into Honda, they got on the phone with Honda technical support and were able to fix the issue by cutting two of the wires (solenoid) Honda had apparently zip tied them and it was causing the wires to rub on each other and eventually making them engage/disengage with the harness so the mechanic just cut them shorter and soldered it to eliminate the problem.

    While they were trying to figure out what was wrong with my car they confirmed with another Honda dealership that another TypeR had the same problem.

    Seems like an oversight by Honda and zip tying the wires was a cheap / lazy route.
