  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,000 miles
Automatic doors sometimes fail to close completely, stopping mid-way. Need to restart car to close them. Warning lights (all) lit up multiple times on several occasions for about 2 minutes each time; then went off. Carbon deposit build-up in throttle cable makes the accelerator pedal very sticky and I need to constantly remind Honda service to clean and lubricate; otherwise, it becomes very sticky and I need to push hard on pedal ~ leading to hard acceleration.
