Known Problems

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.

The PCM can misinterpret data from the air fuel sensor and set a false Check Engine (MIL) light requiring a PCM update to repair.

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.

A water leak on the passenger floor can be caused by a clogged AC evaporator drain.

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

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.

A long cranking time before the engine starts might require a PCM software update and replacement of the fuel pressure regulator.

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

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