    Hey, welcome!

    I think we all end up here because of some problem we couldn't figure out, or we just wanted to know the very best way to treat our Honda . . . . but it's OK because some of us end up staying when we start to enjoy our Hondas and to hang with others of similar passions.

    Got a picture you want to share?

    Sounds like they forgot to send it to the alignment bay

    It looks like the thread is too old to still be around, but I had to have the passenger front strut replaced on my '07 EX-L with around 1000 miles, after only having it a couple of weeks. I think the popping noise existed from when I picked it up (with 5 on the odometer). I just didn't notice it for a few days.

    I called my salesperson and he arranged for me to come by and take a service manager for a ride. He agreed that something was wrong. I dropped it off the next day and he called me to tell me it was the strut. They would FedEx one in for the next morning and arranged to get me a rental car for a day. They had it ready by lunch the next day and I didn't have any problems with front end pulling. They said they would check front-end alignment and I think they did. I have another 2000 miles on mine now and no problems.

    My theory is that someone strapped the car down too tight while trucking/shipping it, but just a guess.

    Hang in there. I'm sure your dealer will get it straightened out.
