I just learned that I have one of these recall units. My generator got me through a terrible six day power outage without a single glitch and with no sign of the recall problem. Still, I’m taking it in to the local Honda place for a fix.

I’ve recommended these Honda units in the past and will continue to do so. These are great little generators. The small size, quiet operation and portability make them a great addition to any emergency back up plan.
