If the failure is due to noise/excessive movement at final drive and or leaking from inboard axle joints , then yes , they are telling you correctly. IF you don't get the Honda re-man(should be with a 3yr./36K warranty) check CAREFULLY for a shop with a GOOD reputation. IF you've done regular maint. at the dealer , possibly you could squeak a little 'goodwill' assistance from Honda , to help bring the total price down a little closer to aftermarket pricing?
