    I bought a new honda in May 2004. Today (at 1500 miles)
    my VAN stoped on the road at low speeds and the dash board shows
    check-engine light and the TCS light.

    1) What are my options?

    2) How do I know if the dealer has performed the recall related fix for
    the transmisson in April 2004?

    3) Is it possbile that the VAN has significant transmission
    damage? If so how do I ask for a replacement VAN ?

    Take a whole bottle of paranoia pills and then take the van to the dealer
    and let him fix it.

    Get your van to your dealer. If it doesn't run or if you're concerned about
    further damage (probably none) then have it towed. Honda will pay for the
    towing. Your warranty will pay for all parts and labor for any defects in
    manufacture or failure in service while your warranty is in effect.
    Ask them! They have nothing to gain by misinforming you. The dealer has
    incentive to perform ALL warranty repairs on all vehicles because they get
    paid by Honda to do those repairs. They are paid at the same labor rate that
    you would pay. They do not get a discount on their hourly rate. The update
    for your vehicle did not officially start till about late spring, so it
    probably has not been done until you bring it in to get done. If it has been
    done the dealer is required to centerpunch a mark over the eleventh digit on
    your underhood VIN number.
    At 1500 miles there is probably no damage relative to the update on your
    transmission. Don't ask for a new van. You will not get one. You will get
    your necessary fix or even a replacement transmission, but the sequence and
    procedure for you to get a new vehicle has not yet happened. There is
    nothing else wrong with the rest of the vehicle so why would Honda replace
    it? They will fix what is wrong.
    Bring it in, visit your dealer, treat them with respect and they will treat
    you the same. You'll be surprised at how well they will treat you and your
    vehicle. Their future depends on it. If one dealer doesn't satisfy you, try
    another. Most cities have more than one dealer in town. Good luck,

    It's been almost 2 weeks since you added this note. I was wondering what
    the resolution was (I'm just being curious). I used to sell Hondas vehicles
    and everything Howard said in his reply was exactly correct.

    except the part about what honda would pay as opposed to a
    customer. honda flate rate time sucks ona lot of things.
    take the van in and find out what the problem is, the trans recall
    covered very few 2004's. and the problem only surfaces after 75,000
    miles or more.
