Honda Repair and Maintenance Issues in Phoenix Area Owners
At Fairway Auto Repair, we are familiar with many of the common and not so common problems that can arise with your Honda vehicle, including the Accord, Civic, Crosstour, CR-V, CR-Z, Fit, Insight, Odyssey, Pilot, and Ridgeline. A properly maintained Honda can be driven 100,000 miles and more. In fact Honda has "The Honda Mile Makers Club 100,000 and Beyond" on their website for owners to share their notable milestones. Their featured member, Joe, has driven his Honda for over 1,000,000 (one million) miles. His amazing feat is attributed to his focus on regular, proper maintenance, such as weekly fluid checks, seasonal fluid changes, fluid changes every 5,000 miles, and responsible driving habits. While we can't promise a million miles for your Honda, we can help you keep it maintained to the best possible condition and replace any parts that become damaged through normal wear and tear or even an accident.
Three Honda Repair Issues
1. Recurring Transmission Failure
A recurring transmission failure problem with your Honda is most likely caused by a failing torque converter. This means that your Honda's engine will rev, but the car won't shift gear, let alone actually move. Fairway Auto Repair can take a look at your transmission and determine if this is the issue causing your recurring transmission failure.
2. Early Brake Pad Wear
Early brake pad wear is a very common Honda repair issue in Phoenix. The Accord and Civic are especially known for having an issue with their brake pads wearing out earlier than expected. Worn out brake pads are noticed when your car does not respond to the normal amount of pressure usually needed to come to a stop. This is an issue that you'll want to have taken care of as soon as possible, before your Honda doesn't stop at all when you apply the brake.
3. Excessive Oil Consumption
If your Honda is constantly low on oil, it is typically caused by one of three things: leaking valve seals, a problem with your oil pan, or a cracked gasket. Aside from noticing low oil from regular fluid checks, you might also see blue smoke from your exhaust pipe or smell burning oil. These signs usually indicate that your engine is burning more oil than it should be doing.
Whatever your Honda repair needs are in the Phoenix area, Fairway Auto can help, whether it's simple, regular maintenance or repairing an actual problem.
