Another problem: steering feels sticky diring normal ride, when maneuvering on car park or driveway (slow speed) its quite hard and you can easy hear PS pump noise - Feels like its struggling to do the job. Is there something about wrong grease in steering rack in early models. Mine is late 2008. Would extended Honda warranty cover that? Is it there any recall issued regarding that problem. I have driven new honda Jazz recently and can tell, power steering is haven better in it that in my Accord. Altough mine has 117k on the clock.
