COMMON HONDA FAULTS:
A common issue with Honda is vibration issues. Typically, vibrations can only be caused by a rotating component in the vehicle. Rotating components can consist of:
- Dashboard Display
- Excessive Oil Consumption
- Power Lock Problems
- Transmission Failure.
- Vibration When Braking
The first step in diagnosing an issue is to contact Autometrics of Berkeley at (510) 524-3881 for a professional and helpful diagnosis. Dashboard display issues ypically occurs in vehicles over 100,000 miles and causes a darkening of the car's dashboard display. This can cause the most problems in the dark because it makes the dashboard display unreadable, including the odomoter, climate controls, and radio.
Excessive Oil Consumption: Typically happens with V6 engines, in the 2008-2012 Honda Accord, 2003-2013 Honda Odyssey Pilot, 2010-11 Honda Accord Crosstour and the 2012 Honda Crosstour.
Power Lock Problems: Generally an issue that occurs when the car is over 100,000 miles. Power locks typically activate intermittently and begin failing when this issue arises, typically seen in Honda Accords.
Transmission Failure: In both the Honda Civic and the Honda Accord, a known issue is transmission failure. Typically happens between 70,000 miles and 90,000 miles at the earliest, often later.
Vibration When Braking: This problem can begin to surface early on, but typically around the 95,000 mile mark. This common problem is caused by warped front brake rotors.

If the water pump fails, there can be even more damage ahead to the timing belt and other engine internal parts. The timing belt and water pump MUST be inspected regularly.
Rubber parts such as the oil filler cap and valve cover gaskets deteriorate after about 120k miles, so they will both begin to leak. If the leaking becomes excessive, the oil will drip onto the exhaust system and create smoke and a potential for fire.
