    When reaching approx. 30 mph a "roaring" sound started coming from the rear of the car. Turned out to be a bad right rear hub/bearing unit - which was covered under 60k mile warranty. There is a TSB 10-028 that has been issued.

    My rear drivers side tire squeals only sometimes between 40-60 mph and the wheel gets really hot and smells like something is hot. Honda Dealership wants a 100 $ diagnostic fee to diagnose the problem. I have a CV joint clunking in the passenger side front tire since day 1, I have paid the diagnostic fee to have the problem looked at, although they are unable to duplicate the noise. I honestly have a problem throwing 100 $ bills at the Honda dealership when the problems are very noticeable and the car is still under warranty. I have never heard of anything like this before, charging customers diagnostic fee's while the car is still under warranty. If they find the problem then the diagnostic fee will go towards the repair of the car... I just cannot understand how this is legal while still under the 3 year 36,000 mile warranty. My problems are minor but still very costly and I hate the fact I either repair the car myself or I drive it until the bearing stops and Honda will then tow it to the dealership and make the repairs. Very disgusting!! I think it is still wrong and very ignorant customers are not being told they have diagnostic fee's while still under warranty.

    A steady growling/humming noise is now present @ 30 MPH and above from the rear. The rear wheel bearings are the issue. I first noticed a scallop of the right rear tire and what felt like a holding back upon acceleration. Finally the loud growling noise soon followed. I changed both rear sets and have reported this to NHTSA before someone ejects a rear wheel assembly at highway speeds.

    Noise began 3 days ago - noticed when I started up a hill going out of subdivision. Low, droning noise, with some resistance and lag in acceleration. The noise isn't always present, but it appears when RPMs increase. Even my husband heard it yesterday and he's hard of hearing! I took it to my local Honda dealer today- where the car was purchased in 2010. They called to say that they couldn't replicate the noise, and could find nothing wrong. I'm glad they say nothing is needed, but I KNOW that the noise is real, and was even worse this morning.

    The sound comes on and off randomly and becomes really loud sometimes recently (currently 12000mile) 1.5 year old.

    My problem started at about 90000 miles. It is a roaring sound. We have rotated the tires and checked the bearings and still can't figure out what the sound is.
    Will be talking to my local Honda dealer to see if they can diagnose the problem.
