Known Problems

On certain models the water pump bearing can go bad and cause a growl type noise from the front of the engine.

A leaking cowl (at the base of the windshield) can leak water into the vehicle's cabin. The cowl has to be resealed to stop the leak.

Certain models can misinterpret air fuel sensor data and cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. A software update from Honda will fix this issue.

On certain models a faulty fuel tank pressure sensor (FTP) can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. The FTP sensor will generally require replacement to repair this condition.

Use of incorrect oil in the rear differential on AWD models will cause a "chattering" sound and vibration on turns. Use only Honda-approved differential oil.

The AC idler pulley can fail causing a growling noise from the engine. A new idler pulley will be needed.

On certain models the damper spring rubber comes loose and can cause a click noise. The damper springs need to be replaced to for this concern.
Misalignment of the rear seat tracks will cause interference with the seats and not allow them to fold up. The seat tracks need to be aligned before the seats will fold up.
