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 automatic transmissions the accumulator cover can leak due to failed o-rings. Replacing the o-rings and cover will address this issue.

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

Front compliance bushings may crack and break. Damaged bushing should be replaced before damaged is done to suspension components.

The AC evaporator can develop a refrigerant leak. The AC system will not blow cold air if this happens.

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.

Occasionally, the anti-lock brake (ABS) warning light may illuminate. This could be due to a faulty rear wheel speed sensor. The sensor design has been updated and revised parts are available to correct this problem.

 

On certain models the PCM misinterprets data from the coolant sensor and sets a false Check Engine light (MIL). A software update from Honda will repair this issue.

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.

Certain models can leak oil externally or allow coolant into the combustion chamber due to a faulty head gasket. The head gasket needs to be replaced to correct this problem.

Some models have a problem were the transmission won't shift into fourth gear intermittently. This problem can commonly be repaired with a software update from Honda.

On certain models the engine RPM does not drop immediately and can cause a surge when driving in first gear. A software update is required for this repair.

On some models a faulty wire harness for the seat belts can cause the SRS light to illuminate. Replacing the faulty wire harness should correct this issue.

A long cranking time before the engine starts might require a PCM software update and replacement of the fuel pressure regulator.
A faulty computer in the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) can cause a false "Side Airbag Off" light to illuminate. The SRS computer will need to be replaced for this issue.
