The radio and climate control display can go dark on some models. It will be necessary to replace the affected unit to correct this concern. Some customers have reported receiving help from Honda regarding this repair.
Power door locks can activate intermittently due to a faulty door lock actuator in the driver's door.
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.
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.
Damaged engine mounts can lead to vibration and roughness felt in the steering wheel. A rattle in the dash and engine area may also be heard. Replacement of damaged mounts will commonly correct these issues.
Some models have shift quality problems when shifting into third gear. A new "third gear set" from Honda will address this issue.
If the brake pedal feels hard the first time it is pressed in the morning, it could be due to a problem with the vacuum supply hose for the brake booster. A revised brake booster hose is available to address this concern.
A water leak on the passenger floor can be caused by a clogged AC evaporator drain.
Owners have reported a number of prematurely worn rear wheel bearings. As the bearing fails, a rotational humming or grinding noise may be noted from the rear as vehicle speed increases. Replacement of the rear hub assembly, which includes the bearing, would be necessary to remedy this condition.
Front compliance (lower control arm ) bushings tend to crack and break requiring replacement.
The AC condenser failed due to contact with road debris and a lack of protection for the condenser.
The PCM can misinterpret data from the air fuel sensor and set a false Check Engine (MIL) light requiring a PCM update to repair.
