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 to thin, replaced to correct this issue.
The ABS modulator (hydraulic unit) can leak air into the brake system and cause a low brake pedal. A new ABS modulator will be needed if it is diagnosed to be the source of the leak.
Plugged moon roof drains can cause a water leak inside the car. The water will usually leak onto the driver's or passenger's head when the car turns a corner.
On some models a mis-manufactured AC evaporator core can cause the AC to cool poorly. The AC evaporator needs to be replaced for the AC to cool properly.
Power door locks can activate intermittently due to a faulty door lock actuator in the driver's door.
Front compliance (lower control arm ) bushings tend to crack and break requiring replacement.
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.
There is considerable tread wear on the outer and inner areas of both front tires. The wear leaves jagged edges on the tire surface and does not happen to the rear tires. My local tire technician suggests that the wheel bearings may require replacement. I havent taken it to my honda dealer yet because i'm abroad. Please advise on the solution. vehicle mileage is 14340 miles
