Definitely heard the 'Ka-chunk' whenever leaving my driveway. It is a known defect, the dealer fixed this issue!
Knocking noise...noticied the drivers side was broken...I bought the replacement from honda and installed myself...easy fix.
my sway bar had to be replaced.. my mechanic did not tell me this was common for Honda's... I'm thinking my 1988 Honda was a better car than my 2001...
rear sway bar went bad, identified by knocking sound when reversing, replaced sway bar/bars
