hi folks I have'nt been on in a while. Something came up recently I thought I would share. I have a 2003 EX and because I have always lived close to work it only has 55000 miles on it. I noticed a problem in parking lots at low speed making tight turns. The steering wheel would vibrate and a lot of noise seemed to be coming from under the hood. Well before the warrenty ran out I took it to the dealer explained the problem thinking power steering replacement. The tech said "sounds like the rear transaxle" drove it around back came back and said "yep thats it" well they changed the fluid in the rear transaxle and problem solved. Hope this helps Stephen.
