The day before my experience. Was driving my Honda CR-V Toiring. I shifted my car into reverse to park, the silver button on the gear knob shot out, and broke off during shifting. Scared me as I had to think for a minute what to do. I shut my car off, Utah my car was rolling. Until I thought of pushing my brake button. I managed to “jerry rig “ the button back into the gear knob; and luckily a friend was there to give Me a piece of gorilla tape to hold the cheap piece of plastic in the knob. I called a Honda they scheduled me in for the next day to fix this Plus was due for a scheduled maintenance on my 2017 Honda.
I am worried because this could happen again. Stan, at Big Island Honda was nice and we discussed this problem with the cheap buttons on the gear shift.
I feel Honda should find a company that makes a better quality part and Recall Honda’s in to fix these. It could be a dangerous problem and hoping no one gets hurt Never heard of this happening to anyone. My car is not even 2 years old.
