A federal class action lawsuit filed against Honda alleges the car maker is refusing to pay for wiring repairs after hungry critters have chewed them up.
 
The suit -- filed by drivers in three states -- claims Honda's soy-based coatings on its wiring (2012-2015 models) attracts animals and that repairs should be covered under warranty.
 
Tonight on 10News at 6: Reporter Michael Chen talks to a mechanic to find out how prevalent the problem is and what safety concerns drivers should be aware of.
