The check engine light is not that big of a deal. I might suggest the Autozone but to those who don't like the hassle, purchase one on the internet. They cost as low as $25 and work very well. They will read the code or codes and then clear the light for you. They come with a book on the codes, you can search for help on-line for the codes and on our website here in the blue section is a "Diagnostic Trouble Codes" page that will tell you what the code is. Compared to what Honda was asking this is cheap.
Now that said, let me add that some codes are intermittent and will clear themselves. Eventually they will get bad enough to trip the light and stay on. Don't keep going to Honda. You have to pick and choose what you want them to repair for you.
If fact, come back to this site and ask for a recommendation whether a needed repair is a Honda problem or if another mechanic could handle it. We will try to give you a hand with that.
