Known Problems

The AC compressor may seize resulting in loss of cold air from the AC vents. Often when the compressor fails in the fashion, debris is spread through out the entire air conditioning system resulting in very expensive repairs.

A groaning noise from the rear differential heard while going through turns can be caused by differential fluid break down. Servicing the rear differential will generally correct this concern.

Impact to the front bumper can cause the connector on the washer pump to come off and the windshield washers will not work. Depending upon the severity of the impact it could damage the washer motor and bottle.

Some vehicles with an automatic transmission can have an issue with a harsh shift from first to second gear. Honda has released a service bulletin suggesting to flush the transmission using Honda ATF-Z1 and replace the linear solenoid. If that does not cure the problem the fault is internal and the transmission will require replacement or overhaul.

Worn door lock tumblers can cause the door lock to be sticky or not work at all. The lock has to be removed and the tumblers need to be replaced for this issue.

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.

On certain models a faulty windshield wiper motor can cause the wipers not to turn off or not park properly. The wiper motor needs to be replaced to address this issue.

Certain models cause the Check Engine light (MIL) to illuminate due to the computer misinterpreting the coolant sensor data. A software update from Honda will repair this issue.

A sticking intake manifold runner solenoid can cause the Check Engine light (MIL) to illuminate. Replacing the solenoid will repair the issue.

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

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.
