Most reported Honda problems
Plugged moon roof drains can cause a water leak inside the car, usually over the head of the driver or passengers head when turning a corner. Cleaning the drains will fix this problem.
A faulty brake master cylinder reservoir filter can cause the brake system indicator to illuminate after a cold start and then go off. Replacement of the reservoir filter will commonly fix this problem.
Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) battery failures are not uncommon. The IMA battery will require replacement when it fails.
The ABS modulator (hydraulic unit) can leak air into the brake system and cause a low brake pedal. A new ABS modulator will be needed if it is diagnosed to be the source of the leak.
One or both of the rear sway bar end links may break resulting in a knocking noise from the rear of the vehicle.
A knock or clunk type noise may be noted from the front suspension over bumps. This is can caused by worm stabilizer (sway) bar links. Replacing both stabilizer bar links will commonly repair 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 automatic transmissions the accumulator cover can leak due to failed o-rings. Replacing the o-rings and cover will address this issue.
The engine valves can prematurely fail. The cylinder head will need to be replaced due to wear in the area where the valves seal. Intake or exhaust valve failure may illuminate the Check Engine Light. The car may have poor engine performance and fail emission tests.
Children feeding coins into the radio's CD slot can cause blown fuses, lights to stay on (both interior and exterior), and can ruin what was once a perfectly good radio.
On some models faulty front wheel bearings can cause a growling type noise from the front of the vehicle. Replacing both front wheel bearings is recommended for this repair.
A fluid leak may develop from one or both front suspension struts. Replacing the struts (usually in pairs) will be necessary to take care of the problem.
The IMA light coming on is usually caused by a battery pack that is no longer charging correctly. Replacing the battery pack will turn off the IMA light.
