Its a first time I am hearing about Honda Synthetic oil. During the 3rd free service and not the 2nd one mainly because of the km run I changed to Mobil one synthetic oil. There is absolutely no issue about the warranty as the Honda service centers themselves give you the choice of Mobil one synthetic Oil
Amidoc,
I know these dealers seem to be coming up with "Warranty void" for stuff which they don't get bucks for. I am surely going to report this to Honda 121. Even I was shocked

Default A small accident - Tail lamp (LH) broken

What Happened?
Yesterday met with an unfortunate incident in my office campus when a two wheeler guy bumped the car from behind and the break lever of the bike happen to hit the Tail Lamp (LHS) and it broke instantly

How it happened?
I was slowing down since there was a hump ahead, there was an Innova on my left, the biker on my back couldn't spot the hump as his view was blocked by the two cars and didn't quite understand why the cars slowed down and did a "BANG"

The break lever hit the tail lamp and scratched the side as well

Got it repaired?
Yes. I couldn't drive the car with a broken tail lamp. These days it has started to rain in bangalore and earlier I attend to the damage better it is . I got the work done today from Magnum Honda. It was done in under 45 minutes. Good job.

Want to see how a broken tail lamp of the ANHC looks like? huh...see it for yourself.

Oops!!!

That's nasty and unfortunate.

Was there a touch up on the scratch? I don't know how but I got similar scratch on my front bumper on the left side.

Hi Raghu,
I tried to do a polish myself and it seems to disappear a bit. The one that you see in the pic is after the polish. It was worse before. I was told by the SA that it would go away by buffing. I didn't have time to get that done. I will get it done some other time.

If it is a deep scratch (usually can distiguish by touch) buffing or polishing wont help. You will have to either do touchup or get it repained. Touchup would look ugly.
Buffing to me is a better bet since it will reduce the depth of the scratch.

Very bad. That scratch looks as if it was a knife cut on your body.

How much ever careful you are you can't avoid such eventualities.
Somehow after beginning to drive ANHC it feels as if the 2 wheelers, auto walas, taxis intrude in to your way even more....

Sorry to see that. I have a similarly placed scratch on my ANHC(white color) but mine looks more prominent than yours.I am baffled as i don't know what to do with that.Will go to dealership for buffing if that can help.

Sorry to hear about the incident.

So, the repair must've included replacing the outer shell of the whole light assembly and any broken bulb(s), right?

A biker hit my car's driver-side ORVM yesterday with his bike's handle-bar as he tried to change lanes without signalling. Fortunately, there was no damage as the ORVM swung around to the opposite end.

There was no bulb damage, but the whole light assembly had to be replaced. I got that replaced today morning.

Jayanth,
Congrats on ur HOnda. Awesome choice of color.

I'm a proud Honda owner too. Well I live and drive in a city (Pune) where scratches and damage to cars is most common place. Can you imagine people leaning on a parked car smoking and using the boot lid to drop ash ? Or perhaps some kids playing by drawing a picture of stumps using chalk. I mean people here can't bear to see a squeaky new car without scratches. If they don't see a single scratch they make it.
I too have suffered the rear tail lamp being broken. One biker just lost his balance and hit the handle on the rear light of my car.
Anyways, all I am trying to say is that your car has been initiated to be driven on Indian roads . Its like a ritual through which most of the cars go through.

True. Since the car is fairly new it still needs getting used to. The scene is not any better in Bangalore traffic mess either.

You are true, we should not let such incidents bother us much.

Hi Srinivas,
Yes it's indeed been a long time. I was a bit busy with work and suddenly one day this happened, thought I would share it with the forum. Actually wanted to post the pic of ANHC with a broken tail lamp.

Incidentally, this happened within the Bagmane Tech Park campus and the gentleman was an employee from Volvo and who better to understand about automobile. He was kind enough nevertheless.

Very sad to hear about the bonnet and doors replaced on ur car. Share more about how you got it replaced? claimed insurence?
