Every car brand has a peculiar mechanical problem common with its cars. This is mostly as a result of perfecting a new technology.
Below are quick descriptions of common issues with Honda cars.
1.) Vibration When Braking
This problem typically is caused by warped front brake rotors. Some owners describe this as a rattling, shaking, or rubbing sensation. Honda with over 98,000 mileage are more likely to experience this issue. In some cases, the rotors can be machined as a fix. If too thin, the rotors will require replacement.
2.) Transmission Failure
Transmission slippage, poor shifting, skipping, or failure may occur in some Honda, usually at over 70,000 mileage. Repair might require a transmission overhaul or complete replacement.
3.) Compliance Bushing Cracking
If you hear squealing or feel shuddering when turning, it could mean that a part of the steering/suspension mechanism is broken. The compliance bushing is typically the culprit, especially in Honda with 95,000 mileage or more.
4.) Power Door Lock Failure
Your Honda’s power door locks might activate intermittently on their own, usually on Honda with over 105,000 mileage. Also, the remote door lock control might not function properly. If your Honda is equipped with an alarm, you might have problems with it going off due to a door lock malfunction.
5.) Dashboard Display Dark
For Honda with more than 109,000 mileage, you might experience the dashboard display going dark, especially the radio and climate control. This problem is caused by a faulty circuit board which should be replaced.
