Known Problems

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.

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 car may drift to the right because the camber (alignment setting) is set unevenly. A 4-wheel alignment will be needed to reset the camber angle.

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.

On certain models, a transmission solenoid can short-circuit and illuminate the Check Engine Light.

The computer can misinterpret a low battery voltage and can cause a false Check Engine (MIL) light to come on. Updating the PCM can correct this issue.

The PCM can misinterpret misfire data and set a false Check Engine (MIL) light requiring a PCM update to repair.
