    Wrong Number: Honda Steers Callers To Talk Line

    WASHINGTON -- Honda said a toll-free number that was printed in more than 1 million owners' manuals is wrong.

    The number was supposed to direct callers to a government hot line on vehicle safety. Instead, owners who dial the 800 prefix hear a recorded message in which a woman's voice, speaking over a funky beat, urges them to call 1-800-918-TALK for "just 99 cents per minute" if they want to talk.

    Honda said it incorrectly published an 800 prefix, rather than an 888, in more than 1 million manuals for 2006 model year Honda and Acura vehicles and Honda motorcycles.

    You'd think they would at least offer the first few minutes free after all you did just buy a Honda!!! Hahaha

    It is just really late or this story is just that funny, either way I am really enjoying it.
