Facing issues with your Honda?

Honda is well-known for being a reliable and valuable brand with strict quality control. However, even with careful design and construction, cars may encounter issues. Although Hondas have fewer problems compared to other brands, it is still important to be aware of potential reliability problems.

What are the most common Honda problems?


Some of the most common issues reported by Honda owners include:

  • Excessive fuel consumption in older models (2003-2013) with V6 engines
  • Transmission failures, including transmission fluid leaks, slippages, and more
  • Front brake rotors warping or prematurely wearing out, particularly in Accord models
  • Door locks randomly locking and unlocking in the Accord, typically after 100,000 miles
  • Dashboard display brightness fades and even goes dark over time

Most common Honda Accord problems

Average annual repair cost: AED1470 complaints: 12,618
Honda Accord owners have faced several dangerous problems, such as premature wearing of brake rotors, unpredictable locking and unlocking of door locks, and slipping transmission. Replacing brake rotors costs approximately $400 per axle. V6-powered Accords had excessive fuel and oil consumption, while ignition switches and starters had early failures. Electrical issues, including weak batteries, dim dashboard lights, and failed stereo backlighting, have also affected various Honda Accord models for several years.
The 2017 Honda Accord caused severe neck and back pain for many owners due to uncomfortable seats and headrests. Interior trim and paint problems have also been a recurring issue with Accords.

Most common Honda Civic problems

Average annual repair cost: AED1350 complaints: 6734
The Honda Civic has faced significant mechanical problems that could pose a risk to safety. In the 2006 model, engine blocks could crack, resulting in coolant leakage and potential engine failure. The Civic also experienced premature brake rotor wear, and several models reported transmission issues, similar to the Accord. Civic cars have a lengthy history of errors being reported by the vehicle, which may or may not be severe.
For instance, in 2019 models, an error related to the emissions system problem could be resolved by a software update for the fuel level sensor. Similarly, before replacing the battery, an electric parking brake problem could be reported. Civic owners have also reported a variety of quality of life issues, such as air conditioner compressor leaks, Bluetooth connectivity problems, peeling or cracking body paint, and cracked sun visors.
The Honda Civic was also part of a worldwide recall of Takata airbags, which could either explode violently or deploy too slowly to be useful. If you have a 2000 Honda Civic, make sure this airbag issue has been resolved!

Most common Honda Pilot problems

Average annual repair cost: AED1990 complaints: 1582
The Honda Pilot is another vehicle model that has been impacted by several problems, including excessive oil consumption, multiple electrical problems, leaks in transmission fluid, and premature brake rotor failures. The 2016 Honda Pilot experienced fuel injector blockages, as well as failures in the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve and idle air control (IAC) valve. Differential fluid breakdown, a problem that is prevalent in many Honda models, also affects the 2003-2012 and 2015 Honda Pilots.
Repairing fuel injectors costs a minimum of AED3670. Honda Pilots from 2003-2008 and 2010-2013 have had issues with low beams being defective due to overheating in the electrical wiring harnesses.

Most common Honda Jazz problems

Average annual repair cost: AED1430 complaints: 512
Compared to the Accord, Civic, and Pilot, the Honda Jazz has relatively fewer potential safety issues and overall mechanical problems. The most common mechanical problems include premature engine failure, power steering failure, bad starters, and faulty ignition coils. The replacement of ignition coils costs a minimum of $200.
Like the 2017 Honda Accord, the 2015 Honda Jazz also caused significant back and neck pain for many drivers due to uncomfortable seats and inadequate headrests. The front door armrests of the 2007-2010 Honda Jazz were prone to cracking, and the 2009 model, in particular, had issues with the paint and clear coat peeling, cracking, or wearing out.

The least reliable Honda model: the 2003 Honda Accord

Most common problem: Electrical issues, brake rotors

The 2003 Honda Accord has caused numerous electrical problems for its owners, including flashing and flickering dashboard lights, dimming or complete failure of stereo and climate control lights, and malfunctioning power door locks. Additionally, the car has faced ignition switch and air conditioning issues, which have left many owners feeling annoyed and dissatisfied.

The most reliable Honda model: the 2021 Honda HR-V

Most common problem: Road noise, electrical issues

The 2021 Honda HR-V may encounter electrical problems and excessive road noise, but overall, there haven’t been any significant issues reported for this model. However, it’s important to note that since the car is still new, major problems are unlikely to occur at this early stage, especially for a brand known for its reliability like Honda.

Booked my service on the MySyara app. Had my car picked up and serviced with no hassles and dropped off within 4 hours. The price was reasonable considering the service quality and quick turn around time.

Yasir Khan

As a personal trainer my schedule is tight. MySyara helped me schedule car washes while I was training my clients. The service was excellent and was a fan of not being in the usual car wash line.

Arun Tewary

I gave my Nissan Patrol to MySyara 2 days back for some maintenance work. They were so prompt professional and reasonable that it’s hard to believe. Entire operation was carried out by them in a spotless manner, right from picking up my car from my place, regular updates, suggestions and timely job completion and delivery. The team was simply superb, so courteous and friendly. Most definitely I will continue to use the services of MySyara always.
