No skips on my '02.

Does anyone else notice that their factory CD player seems to skip more than it should? I'm not sure what the quality of the factory unit is.
We have a 2002 EX, and I bet the CD skips at least once ever time I drive it (the Ody is primarily my wife's ride so I drive it several times a week.) I don't even have to be driving over a big bump, it skips on small bumps just as well. It happens on several different CDs, and I've made sure that they are clean too.
It's not a huge deal, but if other people are experiencing it, it may be work having the dealer look at replacing the unit. I owned a Honda Del Sol for 9 years, and the CD player that I had in that car was after-market, but not top of the line. I can count on one hand the number of times that CD player skipped.</font>
I'm guessing this should be covered under the warranty so maybe you should get them to replace it with a totally new one. So when you do swap with an aftermarket deck you will still have a working back-up or you could sell it. Just a thought...<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by shindog:
Mine does the same thing, even with brand new disks. I was going to take it back to the dealer, but I'm switching it out now anyway for aftermarket, so I don't care.
This is why I didn't go back to the dealer; they'd never be able to reliably reproduce the problem since it is so intermintent. Oh well. Thanks for the suggestion though, Nestor.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by cmt4:
The dealer would not replace the unit because they could not duplicate the skips. This is my wife's vehicle, so I couldn't argue any facts other than my wife is not a liar... unless it's about her shopping bill. I drove it home from the dealer (about 30 mins) and didn't experience one skip. The dealer said they did clean it... I'll let my wife keep me informed if the problem returns.
