    While test driving our first 4 seater that arrived today I kept hearing a noise that seem to becoming from the roof of the unit. Upon further inspection the middle mounting bolt at the front and rear of the machine appeared loose, you could move the roof up and down around an 1/8 of an inch. But neither bolt would tighten up and appeared to be too long for the application.

    Remembering the issues we had with the first batch of 2 seaters, I pulled the parts fiche up and found those 2 bolts were missing a rubber washer that would take up the slack and dampen vibration. After doing some looking around the rest of the roof I located 2 bolts in the middle of the unit that are attatched vertically to the outside edge of the roof. Those 2 bolts had the rubber washers under them that weren't suppose to be there.

    So if you've recently purchased or plan to purchase a X4 or X4 Live Valve, please inspect the roof for proper installation. Keep in mind the roof is already attached before it arrives at the dealership.

    Also take a look under the drivers seat, I found that our unit had the DLC dummy connector unplugged and was flapping in the breeze.

    Even though a dealer doesn't install it, they should want to go thru and check for things like this. It's called Dealer Prep!

    I suppose you stop on the side of the road at exactly 100 miles and retorque your lug nuts after every tire rotation and you check your tire pressure every single time before you start the motor too?

    Seriously? Be pissed at the factory for blowing it ... sure! But if you think a dealer is going to check the factory installed parts I’ve got a bridge to sell you.

    Again, I work for a dealer so I'm preemptively telling people that may purchase one from a dealer who doesnt care.

    As Aaron Rodgers say's " R E L A X". As HondaTech said, buy from a dealer who cares.

    It appears that some people just want to make their opinion heard without realizing what their typing is going to make them sound like a complete idiot and make others completely disregard what they say.

    Posts like this are EXACTLY why the next time we buy a Honda anything I will be going to Honda of Fairfield and demanding that @HondaTech does the prep on my machine.

    Anyone who read the post and speaks English as a first (or second) language would agree.
