Known Problems

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 some models the manual transmission fifth gear can grind on upshift due to a misaligned fifth shift fork. The transmission will have to be removed and disassembled and  the fifth gear, the fifth sleeve set and the fifth gear shift fork will have to be replaced to repair this issue.

On some models a jingling noise from the rear can be heard due to uninsulated damper mounts. Both rear damper mounts will need to be insulated to quiet the noise.

On certain models moisture can get into the rear wheel bearing and cause a noise. Replacing the rear bearing and hub will repair this problem.

On certain models the fuel fill door does not open far enough to clear the body. Installing an improved fuel door spring from Honda will fix this issue.

A clunk noise can develop from the rear due to upper damper spacers compressing over time. Installing new damper collars is required to stop the noise.

The center console has a tendency to warp. Replacing the warped console will repair the problem.
Corrosion on the antenna mast can cause poor reception. Replacing the antenna and any corroded parts will improve reception.
