    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.

    :doh:
    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.
