Known Problems

Some models have shift quality problems when shifting into third gear. A new "third gear set" from Honda will address this issue.

An oil leak inside the distributor can cause the engine to misfire resulting in a loss of power. It is common for the distributor to be replaced to correct this concern.

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

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.

Ignition switch failure may cause the car to stall or fail to start. Honda issued a recall to replace the ignition switch. For more information on this recall please click here»

The AC condenser failed due to contact with road debris and a lack of protection for the condenser.

Excessive oil consumption can cause a low oil level condition, which can result in illumination of the Check Engine Light.

The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) can misinterpret data from the coolant temperature sensor and set a false Check Engine (MIL) light. The PCM will need a software update for this issue.

A Check Engine Light can come on because some models may misinterpret the ratio of air and fuel being burned for combustion. The powertrain control module (PCM) can also misinterpret data from the coolant sensor and set a Check Engine Light. For either condition, the PCM will need to be replaced.

Some models can have a problem with moisture entering the fuel pressure regulator and affecting the amount of fuel being burned in combustion. This would set a Check Engine Light.

The radio and climate control display can go dark on some models. It will be necessary to replace the affected unit to correct this concern. Some customers have reported receiving help from Honda regarding this repair.
