Question: Why should the rack on the rack and pinion steering have to be replaced at 39000

Your car is 5 years old and parts do fail/go bad. What type of problem are you having?

Thanks. Only problem at this time is leaks on driveway and in garage and replacing fluid.

The only repair is to have the steering rack replaced. The seals that leak cannot be replace separately.

Actually at the dealer (24 bay shop) we do maybe a dozen racks a year. Most are on cars either with a defect that shows up early on- less than 15K , the others are generally replaced due to an accident , or the cust(or outside shop) put non-honda fluid in it-that WILL cause seals to fail very quickly.Are you sure it's the rack and not a line or fitting going to it?
