At 33,000 miles, the VSA, ABS, and exclamation symbol on the dashboard lighted up permanently. The dealer said the VSA modulator needed to be replaced at a cost of $2,400. Apparently a lot of Honda owners are having similar issues. If my VSA modulators poop out every 30,000 miles and the car lives as long as my old Honda, I'll end up spending $10-15,000 on just this one component -- and I don't even like ABS brakes. I'd try the electrical tape trick but I think the car inspector might pick up on a dash display that looked like Groucho Marx's face. What is a decent person to do when the manufacturer doesn't stand behind their product?
