I hope this poor guy gets his car fixed... I hate seeing Honda cars in pain since I am an avid Honda fan :) I drive both a Civic and an Accord and I cant live without both of them !! But I do think VTECnical's car is totalled now... so sad..

Circuit City caused $12,119 worth of damage to VTECnical's 2007 Honda Civic while trying to install a Pioneer AVIC Z2 navigation system. Honda later declared VTECnical's car a fire hazard and told him it was unsafe to drive. Despite destroying the car's heater ducts, stock wiring harness, and dashboard, Circuit City has refunded only $3,190, and insists that VTECnical speak exclusively to their third-party insurer. Hit the jump for Honda's ****ing condemnation of Circuit City's shoddy workmanship and a video of the damage.

That is why I do the work myself.In less it is just something I have no ideal about.
As Max has said they best buy him a new one and write it off.

Also it helps when you take your car in for repairs. You will understand better what is the problem! :cool:

Looks like they tried to install a Navigation System but lost their way under the dashboard.
