Hello there,



Just need help as I couldn't find answer to my concern.



I bought a brand new car from a honda dealership - 2016 civic and when I drove for upto 5 kms in the same day, I got a warning on a dashboard saying that " Engine temperature too hot, stop driving when safe " and there was smoke all over inside the car ( car was under 30 kms in total ). I took it to the dealership where they said that they will change it for a different car ( same model) which is going to take a week but in the meantime gave me a loaner vehicle.



Just wondering if the same thing happened to someone else and what sort of compensation I should ask for the inconvenience as I had too many problems with the dealership like the car was not ready for 3 days, I was going back and forth , took time off work, blah blah. I am not sure if it's the right forum to get some insight .



Please advise . Thanks in advance.

Firs time I've heard of a 2016 civic going up in smoke. Free oil changes or maybe the first few years maintenance for free?

That could be it, but I thought the missing pins problem should have been fixed already especially in new vehicles.

Definitely an inconvenience but at least they're trying to tend to it asap and gave you a loaner vehicle. I think asking for free maintenance for a few years is excessive... maybe first oil change free ?
