Thanks for adding some useful information to this post. I have two 2017s and a 2013, all V6 with the 6AT. I did get a notice about the 2013 having the warranty extended on the EPS, but nothing on my 2017s, and Honda has my address. The 2013s I believe were “known” for EPS issues for a number of years prior to the warranty extension.I did find this blog entitled Electric Power Steering (EPS) Problems in the Honda Civic and Accord.
Questions to be asked:
- There was a TSB software update for the EPS in 2017. Was the OP's VIN included in that TSB and was EPS ever updated?
- What/any DTC codes were set?
- Honda extended the warranty on certain Honda models for EPS controllers to 100K or 5 years. Is OP's VIN included in that warranty extension?
I have a 2007 V6 5AT as well. There was a recall on the return (suction) line for the PS pump. It was a simple matter of the O-ring leaking allowing air to be sucked in and mixed with the PS fluid in the reservoir. On mine it was just an obnoxious noise that I “fixed” by wrapping the hose with a rag and repositioning it with a zip tie. Then I let the dealer replace the hose under warranty when it was convenient. For the short time mine was sucking air, there was a reduction in PS assistance.Im having power steering issues with my 07AccordEx 6 cylinder that started the day after replacing the r front axel. The steering wheel has less power and made some noise. I assumed it was low on fluid so I added SOME. It was just below the FULL mark.
The belt noise stopped after that but there’s been no improvement in steering power.
I certainly hope it doesn’t go out all of a sudden.
Maybe the hose got bumped when the belt was replaced after the axel replacement.
