    Well it might have if he didn't tear the friggin thing apart after.
    To answer your question ... NOPE

    Honda (and Acura) now have a code that can be accessed in the computer (ECM) that tells them if the car was over-reved. We have had 3 of these cases at our dealership. Problem is that these kids (yes I said kids) have parents who have more money then brains and buy these kids these cars. The kids have no experience driving them and this is the results.

    We had one come in and he got it fixed (Mommie & Daddie payed the bill) and when he picked it up he went outside and started it right up and reved the livin' $hit out of it. He must have been tachin' 8000 RPMs from the get go ... stone cold. We ran out and yelled at him to stop and he said he was just making sure that we fixed it right.

    Hey ... it's his money (or should I say Mommie & Daddie's) ... dumba$$

    Some people just don't get it. Just wait until he's buying his own ride and has to pay the bills.

    thx
