Salted roads maybe?

Re: 08 blade exhaust rusting

Any polishing compounds applied? Something that doesn't like chrome? If any protective coating has been applied, read it carefully for possible bad interaction with chromed parts..

you're not the first person to post about rust.. but i believe it's been more familiar from over the pond... as i'm guessing you guys have slightly nastier weather than we do over in the states.. i don't believe honda has recognized this as a valid reason for a recall yet, but i would file a formal complaint with honda in order to get a log going.

Re: 08 blade exhaust rusting

I thought the common problem was discolouration in the muffler rather than the headers rusting?

Re: 08 blade exhaust rusting

I think its both, to be honest I don't think I have ever heard of any Honda having as many issues as the 2008 blade.. I have never had any rust on any of my Honda's.. My 08 didn't show any rust after 10,000 miles...

yeah the 08 def has more probs than most of the others out there.. but it seems like it's hit or miss.. seems like discoloration on the exhaust has been European prob mostly, oil probs back and forth, clutch issues, i've heard some peoples paint was clouding over really soon... disappointing to say the least..

Re: 08 blade exhaust rusting

I know that Honda are aware of this problem and are replacing them under warrenty but "ONLY" if the customer complains , and not a recall notice !!

Its something to do with the rivets in the build of it , not weather or finishining so could happen anywhere !!


So anyone else out there with this problem , take it to your Honder dealer for a warrenty replacement now !!!!

Re: 08 blade exhaust rusting

When you get your new one, make sure you check it over and if needed, stick on a bit of hammerite or some sort of rust prohibitor.
