Known Problems

On certain models the fuel gauge will not read full due to excessive resistance in the sending unit. Replacing the sending unit in the fuel tank will commonly repair this issue.

On some models moisture could make its way into the rear wheel bearing, which would lead to noise. Rear wheel bearing and dust cap replacement will be needed for this repair.

While the engine is cold and in gear, the car may move faster than expected when the accelerator is not pressed. A software update from Honda will fix this concern.

 

The torque converter may not lock up because some models with the automatic transmission may have a faulty thermostat that will not allow the engine to reach normal operating temperature.
The upper windshield molding can vibrate at higher speeds causing a noise. Back filling the molding with a silicone sealer is involved in the repair.
The clutch assist spring on some models can cause a creaking noise from the clutch pedal. A new clutch assist spring will be needed for the repair.

The engine block can crack behind the exhaust manifold and cause an oil leak. Depending upon the severity of the crack it can be sealed to stop the leak.

Our technicians note that this model must be fully warmed up in order to pass the smog/emissions test.
On vehicles with a squeaking moon roof, there is an anti squeak tape available from Honda.
Poor radio reception can be caused by corrosion in the antenna mast. Replacement of the antenna and other corroded parts will be needed.
