Caution about Honda lawnmowers
After owning a Honda HRR216VKA for less than a year, I started having starting and surging problems with it. Like other gas engines, I figured there was a clogged jet or junk in the float bowl. I took it apart, inspected and reassembled several times, but could not find any problems. Since it was still under warranty, I took it back to HD for warranty repair. HD has their own issues, but after 4wks, it came back with a REPAIR BILL!!. They said they had to replace the carburetor because of RUST?? As I mentioned, I had taken it apart several times and it looked like new. I complained, I asked for the old part (which they didn't have) and they gave it back to me without a charge but REALLY?? A one year old lawnmower that needed a new carburetor from HONDA?? I expect better, and if it breaks, I expect the warranty to be honored.
