Very quiet sort of hollow rubbing noise first was heard in January, had to turn radio and climate control off to hear. Oil analysis indicated no wear issues. Noise eventually grew loud enough in April to be heard over radio, did not have complete failure replaced before further issue. Not original part no info on water pump, but replaced failing water pump, poor radiator air flow may have been factor in failure due to constantly elevated operating temperatures. UPDATE: Radiator and condenser performing normally, no airflow restriction aside very bottom of bumper exposes condenser which is common on Honda. Elevated temperatures and lackluster AC performance solved with fan replacement as mentioned in next entry. Accessory belt tensioner also possibly dragging, preemptively replaced. Radiator will be replaced soon on separate repair. (Update: Radiator not replaced, in acceptable condition, no leaks)

TSB for replacement of clutch master cylinder. Groaning of clutch and irregular clutch takeup. Replaced entire clutch. I paid $488 for the "parts" (they initially wanted $900), labor covered by warranty repairs. It has been occuring since ~40K km and considering the 3 other drivetrain-related repairs, I argue the clutch got unusually worn. Both driveshafts vibrated / shuddered violently under throttle. Technician came along for test drive confirmed that "they're either loose or about to break". Driveshafts were replaced. Fluid leak between engine and transmission. Repaired under warranty (not sure if original drivetrain warranty, or under my CPO warranty)

Symptom was that the car accelerated in spurts and fits at part-throttle. Felt like dirty fuel system or something along those lines. Check engine light is thrown. Sometimes, the "Check VSA" light comes on, also putting the car in low-power limp-mode (an engine restart fixes that). Long story short, the engine code shows that it's an electrical problem: the throttle calibration module is faulty. I was able to confirm this by accelerating using the cruise control's buttons, and it accelerates and holds throttle smoothly. I haven't repaired this yet, because the mechanic that originally saw this got the diagnosis all wrong. He insisted it's the throttle body that needs cleaning, and that's not the case. Still need to repair this, but car is somewhat drivable. Power steering leaks. Have to add fluid regularly.

The car's transmission began to slip, I checked the fluid and ended up adding 2 quarts, three weeks later the same thing. When the car was parked no fluid could not be seen leaking. After driving the car, you could smell the fluid burning. I took the car in and the high-pressure line of the transmission had developed a pin hole leak, so as the pressure in the transmission increased the car's speed the fluid poured out of the car. My Mechanic had the hole in the line welded closed and the problem has gone away. The VSA light and the Check engine light came, when this happen cruise control would cut off. I assumed it was the timing sensor, I took the car in and the mechanic said the oil pan was dry and that the timing chain was stretched and time tensioner was shot as well and the cam for the valves were bent. It needed a major engine overhaul. All was repaired and replaced Car needed Brakes Rotors and Calipers The High pressure line to the transmission developed a pin hole leak, so the transmission would only leak when the car's transmutation was engaged. to correct it my Mechanic welded the holes closed and it seems to be holding up.
