Known Problems

Issues with the air fuel sensor (oxygen sensor) can set a Check Engine Light.  A failed sensor will need to be replaced for this repair.

 

Front compliance (lower control arm ) bushings tend to crack and break requiring replacement.

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

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

A chirping noise coming from the timing belt area can be caused by a misaligned, or tilted idler pulley.

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 front brake rotors can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be machined or in cases where they are worn too thin, replaced to correct this issue.

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.

One or both of the rear sway bar end links may break resulting in a knocking noise from the rear of the vehicle.

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

Owners have reported a number of prematurely worn rear wheel bearings. As the bearing fails, a rotational humming or grinding noise may be noted from the rear as vehicle speed increases. Replacement of the rear hub assembly, which includes the bearing, would be necessary to remedy this condition.
