I have a 2010 EX35 with 84,000KM (about 52,000 miles. I am debating selling it because of long term reliability concerns. I love the way it drives and its refinement but my recent fuel pump problem got me thinking about its long term reliability. I am meticulous about maintenance and maintenance is not an issue for me. I don't have an extended warranty and thus I want to hear about owners who have 2008s 2009s, 2010s or later or EX with more mileage. What have you had problems with? What should we be concerned about?
My 4-year warranty is done with - since last November, and I just had to change the fuel pump a second time (out of warranty now - $1,010.00 CDN
). I think my battery needs to be changed soon as well.
I know about / contribute to True Delta, and it is an useful site, but I want to know about the specific parts that people had problems with. What are the typical problems you ran across with your EX?
I had the following problems in the last 4.5 years of ownership:
Driver side seat had to be changed under warranty because it moved (2011 - 6,000KM)
Driver side mirror changed at 12,000km under warranty because it was distorting image (2011 - 12,000KM)
Passenger side mirror actuator (2014) had to be changed under warranty as it was making noise when moving (60,000 km)
Rear brake pads changed at 63,000 (June 2014) (done by self- not under warranty)
Fuel pump change in Feb 2014 because of problem with gauge **under warranty (63,000km)
Front disk and pads changes in June 2014 (70,000km)
Fuel pump change again
in March 2015 - engine was cranking but no start **not under warranty ! (84,000km)
I know of the steering wheel electric motor problem (never happen to me, but I do not use it much)
What are the problems you have had, or any general issues/parts we should be concerned about? For instance, the major ticket items I am concerned about are:
4) ECU - Computer
6) Transfer case ?
7) Engine (oil consumption, timing chain issues, etc)
9) ABS, VSA, etc.
