Car hesitates when going around slow corners and trying to accelerate (e.g. inside housing areas). Backfires upon accelerating. Taken in four times since April. Car bought back in January as a result of Lemon Law action.
Backfire in the intake manifold. Serviced 4 times by November with no positive results. Filed under Lemon Law. Arbitration required Honda to repurchase which was concluded 1/22/2008.
Service advisor tried to tell me this was normal due to the idle speed dropping low with load on transmission. He could give no explanation why this started after car was driven for 1 year before the problem started.
Noise in timing belt system. Dealer contacted U.S. Honda and was told they are aware of the problem and working on a fix or TSB but may require a shim in the timing belt system. Said it was only third reported problem like this in the U.S.
Rattling noise in timing belt area when warm. Honda researched and advised it was caused by the timing belt pulley being slightly skewed. Potential failure (though unlikely) of timing belt pulley that could cause major valve, piston, or cylinder damage.
Check Engine light came on. Minutes later Engine had no power. Shutting the engine and restarting it was enough to get me to the dealer. Dealer diagnosed and replaced faulty engine sensor under warranty.
CEL with bank 1 catalyst issue
Car started leaking oil. Defective oil pan plug seal. Replaced under warranty.
Car intermittently does not start when key turned. So far, a second turn of the key solves the problem.
Fix for occasionally iffy ignition would have been thirty bucks at Advance and an hour of trim work. Sold this way, new buyer wasn't worried.
