The clock light has a tendency to burn out.

The throttle body can accumulate carbon deposits causing the throttle to stick or pop when first accelerating after the vehicle sits for a while. Performing a throttle body service will generally correct this problem.

Damaged engine mounts can lead to vibration and roughness felt in the steering wheel. A rattle in the dash and engine area may also be heard. Replacement of damaged mounts will commonly correct these issues.

The driver's door latch assembly can break internally, which causes the door to stay closed. The interior and exterior door handles do not work to open the door. Our technicians note that the door panel must be removed while the door is closed (likely damage will occur) and the latch assembly must be drilled in a specific spot for the door to open.

Power door locks can activate intermittently due to a faulty door lock actuator in the driver's door.

Leaking gaskets around the tail lights can allow water entry into the tail light assembly. New gaskets should fix this concern.

On some models moisture could make its way into the rear wheel bearing, which would lead to noise. Rear wheel bearing and dust cap replacement will be needed for this repair.

A poor electrical ground can cause the dome light not to work.

The upper windshield molding can vibrate at higher speeds causing a noise. Back filling the molding with a silicone sealer is involved in the repair.
The evaporative emission control solenoid (in the EVAP system) can fail in areas of the country where salt is used on the roads during winter.
On vehicles with a squeaking moon roof, there is an anti squeak tape available from Honda.
