Description of the Complaint:
FROM READING ONLINE, IT APPEARS I'M ONE OF MANY WHO HAVE A VTC ACTUATOR ISSUE. HONDA SERVICE PEOPLE NEVER KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT EVEN THOUGH IT'S IN A BULLETIN 09-010 FROM HONDA. ENGINE HAS LOUD COUGH SOUND UPON STARTING THE CAR, AFTER BEING OFF FOR 6 HOURS OR SO. THIS SHOULD BE PART OF A RECALL & CUSTOMERS SHOULDN'T BE CHARGED FOR THIS BUT THAT'S OBVIOUSLY WHAT THEY WANT TO DO TO US.
