The price for the HRV is quite expensive , but you think you are buying a reliable car . Reads the test in magazines and you think that everything is perfect but HR=V is for me disappointment I hate to spent my day waiting to find why my new car have Flashing EP and Engine Management system, followed by flashing red handbrake ….

As it is still within warranty I think a visit to the dealer is called for!

Honda's basic engineering is very good and the problems tend to be caused by small components such as sensors which are made to others and the source will depend on the location of the Honda factory.

Some of the early Mexican-assembled HR-Vs had problems similar to yours but the more recent HR-Vs sold in UK have generally been better behaved (and the source changed to Japan about one year ago). Is your HR-V made in Japan (VIN beginning with "J") or Mexico (VIN beginning with "3HG")?
