Broken left rear sway bar link. 114,000 miles and now the left front one has broken.
my sway bar had to be replaced.. my mechanic did not tell me this was common for Honda's... I'm thinking my 1988 Honda was a better car than my 2001...

Definitely heard the 'Ka-chunk' whenever leaving my driveway. It is a known defect, the dealer fixed this issue!
