During a recent road trip we were driving on the freeway for extended periods. During this time, there were times when the steering became very difficult. This car has lane keep assist and other safety mechanisms, but those were turned off. However, it is as if it was trying to steer for me, but in the wrong direction. For example during a turn, it would become difficult to straighten the wheel - it wouldn't click, but it would offer strong resistance. I don't know if the power steering assist is just stopping working in one direction? In general it becomes overly difficult to steer as if it is "fighting" against the driver. The steering becomes "sticky" particularly on turns. I've researched this in different car forums and it is a common complaint. It is generally at highway speeds, it is intermittent, and it is usually after driving the car for a while. Because it is making the car difficult to stay in the proper lane this could cause an accident. The car only has 44k miles and has been well maintained. During a recent inspection for this problem at the dealer they found nothing obvious but we could not recreate the problem. Some people have reported replacing the power steering rack has resolved the problem. This should be investigated as it is a dangerous condition when it occurs.

Over 40 mph and especially on highway, the steering wheel is very jerky. A slight adjustment causes the steering wheel to jerk in the hands right or left depending on which way it is being turned. It feels like the steering wheel is stuck and breaking loose.

I started experiencing issues with my a/c within 12months of purchasing the vehicle. The a/c would blow hot air sporadically and when i brought the issue up to the service advisor to look into, they reported that they did not find anything wrong and that the a/c was functioning properly. This issue would continue to happen every summer up until now, where it has completely stop working and only blowing out hot air. I brought the vehicle back to honda and was told that the vehicle is now out of warranty and more than likely it was the condenser or compressor. I would need to pay for a diagnostic and that i would be responsible to upward of $1800 for the repair.

Transmission fill plug came out and leaked fluid all over my transmission. The fluid was changed at my local honda dealership about 2 years ago. Only noticed while i was changing my oil on 9/6/2020. I have no idea to when the plug came out and started leaking. I looked it up in online forums and it seems to be a common problem. I'm afraid it will get dirt or other materials in my transmission and mess it up. Luckily i was able to get to it by taking the air-intake off and putting the plug back in place. Will be reporting this to my dealership as well.

Primary display failed, removing ability to see backup camera and right turn or right side blindspot camera. Secondary impact to climate control and other vehicle functions but safety issue with an inability to see the backup camera on the display is primary concern. Vehicle was stationary when the problem was noticed, but it affects safe operation when backing or making right turns or lane changes to the right.
