The rear end (differential) fluid should be changed every 15 K miles. You have to use the proper Honda fluid, but it only takes one and a half quarts. If you do not change it often enough the rear-end will chirp because it will not slip when it should. If a dealer changed the fluid then if you do a Car-Fax report, and it should show on that report. There are YouTube videos on how to change that fluid. It is easy to do. There is a hand operated pump that fits the quart bottles that you can buy on e-bay.

There is a YouTube video that shows that if you let it go too long and it chirps, to change it, and then find a vacant parking lot and drive in reverse doing left and right circles and that will loosen the rear end back up so it will operate properly. Then from then on be sure to do the rear-end fluid every 15 K miles.
