I had the same problem on my EX Coupe. I would get the message, check the cap, and it was always tight. I would take it off anyway, put it back on again, and tighten it again. The message would sometimes go away, but inevitably it would come back. Finally, I went to the dealer, where they "checked and lubed it". Same as before. After a few weeks of this, I ended up buying the plastic clip, and the gas cap myself from the Parts Dept. for $22, and changed it myself in all of two minutes. Never had the problem again. I could've had it replaced under warranty, but I felt the $22 more then covered the multiple trips and hours waiting at the dealership so that it could be "checked and re-lubed" before finally having it replaced anyway. Good luck.
