Warranty Extension: Steering Wheel Is Hard to Turn at Low Speeds
(Supersedes 11-039, dated August 20, 2011, to revise the information marked by the black bars)
(Replaces 10-076, Steering Wheel Is Hard to Turn Quickly at Low Speeds, dated July 15, 2011)
In Applies To, the model year range was changed.
On some 2005–10 Odysseys, the power steering pump does not provide the intended amount of assistance while the vehicle is driven at slow speeds with low engine RPM, making the steering wheel hard to turn when driving in areas such as a parking lot. To increase customer confidence, American Honda is extending the warranty on the power steering pump in affected vehicles to 7 years from the original date of purchase or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.
The warranty extension does not apply to any vehicle that has ever been declared a total loss or sold for salvage by a financial institution or insurer, or has a branded or similar title under any state’s law.
