Thanks for the info. As it turns out the vehicle went back to the dealer. (Which is a Honda store in Quincy, Il. ) They offered me my money back as I was not happy with the vehicle. I believe they were not aware of the problem as the car had never been in their detail shop, it was a fresh local trade (verified one owner bought new at the local Pontiac dealer) which I bought undetailed as part of the deal. Anyway, they also had an 2003 Bonny which had been traded in and we hammered out a deal on it. It'* not my favorite color (white) but it actually rides out better than the 02 and is equally equipped except no moonroof! Believe me, I went through it completely before I signed the paperwork. It is not perfect, but I feel comfortable that I know what it will need. I feel that legally (at least in Illinois) I had little recourse about the first vehicle, so I'll give props to the sales manager Scott Davis for being a stand up guy.
I look forward to piddling with my 03 Bonny and learning from the expertise within this site!
