105K MILES, REGULAR CAR MAINTENANCE, CLEAN TITLE (NO PREVIOUS ACCIDENTS/OTHER ISSUES), NO PENDING RECALLS. WHILE DRIVING THE CAR AT 55 MPH ON THE HIGHWAY, THE ENGINE SOMEHOW IGNITED AND CAUGHT FIRE. PREVIOUS TO THIS INCIDENT, THERE WERE NO PENDING ISSUES, WHICH WERE CONFIRMED BY A RECENT INSPECTION AND MINOR REPAIRS. I STRONGLY BELIEVE THIS WAS A FAULTY HONDA ENGINE.

ON A ROAD TRIP TO MASS, CHECK ENGINE LIGHT BLINKS AND CAR RUNS POORLY. STOP AT THE NEAREST HONDA, GARBER HONDA IN ROCHESTER, NY. FIRST MADE AWARE OF RECALL. GARBER SAYS REPAIR IS MADE AND IS COVERED UNDER RECALL PROGRAM. I WAS ADVISED TO RETURN IF PROBLEM COMES BACK AND TOLD I HAD UNLIMITED MILES TO DO SO. CAR CONTINUES TO CONSUME OIL. I WAS UNAWARE THAT THE CONSUMPTION WAS PART OF THE EXTENDED WARRANTY CAMPAIGN REGARDING THE NUMBER 2 CYLINDER. 26 OCTOBER - 9 NOVEMBER 2018 CHECK ENGINE LIGHT STARTS TO BLINK AND CAR RUNS POORLY. ON THE ROAD I TAKE IT TO THE NEAREST HONDA, LIA HONDA OF WILLIAMSVILLE, NY. NUMBER 2 PLUG FOULED AGAIN. I WAS TOLD THE WARRANTY CAMPAIGN HAD ENDED AND I HAD TO BRING IN ALL THE MAINTENANCE RECORDS TO QUALIFY FOR A 'GOOD WILL' REPAIR. I FAX AND CALLED NORTHTOWN BUT RECORDS FROM PREVIOUS YEARS NOT AVAILABLE DUE TO DEALERSHIP BUYOUT. I PAID TO HAVE SPARK PLUG REPLACED. I SPENT 3 WEEKS EXCHANGING EMAILS WITH ADRIAN BONSEY AT LIA TO RESOLVE THE ISSUE. IN MY FINAL FOLLOW UP HE MENTIONS HE HAD CLEARED THE EXCHANGE OF EMAILS FROM HIS SYSTEM. I GO ONLINE AND RESEARCH THE ISSUE DISCOVERING THE WARRANTY CAMPAIGN LETTER, A LETTER I HAD NEVER BEEN GIVEN BEFORE.I AM UNABLE TO GET MY EMISSIONS DONE FOR THE STATE OF NY DUE TO A NEARLY ALWAYS ON CHECK ENGINE LIGHT. I CONSUME 2 - 3 QUARTS OF OIL BETWEEN OIL CHANGES AND FOUL OUT A PLUG EVERY FEW MONTHS. I THINK HONDA OWES ME A REPAIR SINCE THE PREVIOUS REPAIR DID NOT RESOLVE THE KNOWN ISSUE.

APPARENTLY THIS PARTICULAR MAKE AND MODEL HAS THIS PROBLEM. HONDA HAS ALWAYS BEEN AWARE OF THIS PROBLEM AND CLAIMS THAT THE ONLY REMEDY IS TO REPLACE THE ACTUATOR AT A COST OF AROUND 900.00 DOLLARS.HOWEVER THEY CLAIM THAT THIS MAY NOT EVEN CORRECT THE PROBLEM. HONDA WAS AWARE OF THIS DEFECT ANNOUNCED A SO CALLED RECALL KNOWING THAT THIS RECALL WOULD NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. IT WAS STRICTLY TO COVER THEIR LIABILITY. I FEEL THAT HONDA SHOULD CORRECT THIS PROBLEM FOR MY 2010 HONDA ACCORD AT NO COST TO CONSUMERS. HONDA CORPORATION WAS ALWAYS AWARE OF THIS DEFECT AND STILL CONTINUED TO SELL THIS PARTICULAR MODEL TO CONSUMERS.

IT IS POOR OIL CONSUMPTION. I WAS TRYING TO TOP OFF THE OIL REGULARLY IN BETWEEN OIL CHANGES BUT NOTHING HAS HELPED THIS. PLEASE HAVE HONDA ISSUE A RECALL ON THIS MAKE AND MODEL

Summary

IN JULY OF 2017 MY CAR STARTED SHOWING THAT THERE WAS A INSTABILITY IN THE ENGINE. TURNS OUT THAT HONDA KNEW ABOUT THIS POSSIBLE PROBLEM AND HAD A PROCEDURE TO DEAL WITH IT WITHOUT FIXING THE UNDERLYING CAUSE. IT SEEMS THAT THEY MADE THE PISTONS INCORRECTLY AT THE FACTORY AND THEY COULD LEAK OIL INTO THE SPARK PLUGS CAUSING MISFIRING IN THE CYLINDERS. I WENT TO HONDA DEALERSHIP TO HAVE THIS CORRECTED AND THEY SAID THEY NEEDED TO REPLACE THE SPARK PLUGS, CLEAN UP THE OIL AND TOP IT OFF. THEN THEY WOULD DO OIL CONSUMPTION TESTS FOR A FEW MONTHS TO SEE IF THE PROBLEM WAS GONE. AND IT WAS GONE FOR A WHILE. JUST LONG ENOUGH FOR THE WARRANTY TO EXPIRE SO WHEN THE PROBLEM OCCURRED AGAIN, I WOULD BE LEFT HOLDING THE BAG TO PAY THE $2700 FOR THE REPAIR THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE WHEN I FIRST WENT IN 2017. I CALLED HONDA TO REVIEW MY CASE AND THEY DENIED ME TWICE STATING THE AGE OF THE CAR NEGATED ANY ASSISTANCE FROM THEM. MY HONDA CASE NUMBER IS 09490208.

HAD TO REPLACE THREE IGNITION COILS WITHIN ABOUT EIGHT MONTHS. THEN, ONE OF THE ONES HAD BEEN REPLACED (#1 CYLINDER), DEVELOPED A PROBLEM. MECH TECH INFORMED/SHOWED ME THAT PLUG HAD FOULED - DUE TO POSSIBLE PISTON RING PROBLEM. LEARNED FROM CARS.COM THAT THERE WAS A PROBLEM WITH PISTON RINGS OF 2008 - 2012 ACCORDS AND HONDA HAD OFFERED A SPECIAL EXTENDED WARRANTY TO CORRECT THEM. I WAS NEVER NOTIFIED BY HONDA OF THIS CORRECTIVE ACTION, ERGO I MISSED THE EIGHT YEARS AND UNLIMITED MILEAGE FROM THE ORIGINAL VEHICLE-IN-SERVICE DATE DEADLINE (CAR WAS PURCHASED IN JUNE 2010). TO REPLACE THE ENGINE WOULD COST MORE THAN THE CAR IS WORTH. NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION AT 888-327-4236. REFERENCE TSB NO. 13-078. DO I HAVE ANY RECOURSE AT ALL?

I BOUGHT USED HONDA ACCORD IN 2015. AFTER THAT, I SPENT 2 TIMES TO REPLACE THE BRAKE PADS IN AROUND 30,000 MILES AND 1 TIME I SPENT FOR ROTOR. I EMAILED HONDA ABOUT IT AND I ALSO UNDERSTAND IT'S ABOUT ALMOST 8 YEARS BUT WHENEVER THERE WAS A RECALL FOR THE BRAKE PADS THEY SUPPOSE TO CHANGE THE WHOLE BRAKING SYSTEM.NOW I HAVE A QUESTION OF KEEPING OR SELLING THE CAR & IF I HAVE TO SELL THE CAR ( IF I AM SELLING IT NOBODY WILL BUY IT OR I HAVE TO TELL THAT PERSON THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE CAR. ) ANOTHER QUESTION IS HONDA IS MAKING A MISTAKE I ALSO READ ABOUT A LAWSUIT REGARDING THAT AND THERE WAS A SETTLEMENT BUT NOW ALL THE USERS HAVE TO PAY AROUND $80 -$100 FOR EVERY 15,000 TO 20,000 MILES. I ALSO SENT EMAIL TO HONDA THAT IF YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE ABOUT THE BRAKES I AM READY TO OUT THE CAR. OR JUST ACCEPT THAT HONDA HAD MADE CHEAP TECHNOLOGY IN THE PAST, SO IN FUTURE, I WOULD RATHER GO FOR TOYOTA. THE INCIDENT DIDN'T HAPPEN SUDDENLY AND MY MECHANIC ALSO INFORMED ME LAST YEAR THIS IS THE PROBLEM WITH HONDA AND I DIDN'T BELIEVE HIM AND NOW I AM ABOUT TO SPEND MONEY FOR THE THIRD TIME AND I FINALLY DECIDED TO SEARCH THE REASON FOR THAT.

EXCESSIVE OIL CONSUMPTION, THE CAR IS BURNING 1 QUART OF OIL EVERY 1000 MILES. THE ACCORD OIL CHANGE GUIDE PER THE OWNERS MANUAL IS AN OIL CHANGE EVERY 7000 MILES. I WAS DRIVING THE CAR WITH NO OIL ON THE DIPSTICK WHICH IS A DANGER OF FULL ENGINE FAILURE ON THE ROAD. HONDA TESTED THE VEHICLE AND HAS EVIDENCE OF THE EXCESSIVE OIL CONSUMPTION.

Summary

WHILE DRIVING MY CAR, I RE-POSITIONED THE DRIVER SIDE SUN VISOR SO THAT IT WOULD COVER THE DRIVERE SIDE WINDOW. DURING THE RE-POSITION, THE VISOR DETACHED ITSELF FROM THE CAR. THE VISOR WOULD NOT GO BACK INTO THE SOCKET, SO I HAD NO OTHER CHOICE BUT CLIP THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE VISOR INTO IT'S SOCKET AND ALLOW THE LEFT SIDE OF THE VISOR TO HANG. I HAD TO HUNCH DOWN FOR THE REMAINDER OF MY COMMUTE IN ORDER TO HAVE FULL VISIBILITY WHILE DRIVING. ONCE PARKED, I WAS ABLE TO WORK WITH THE VISOR FOR SEVERAL MINUTES TO GET IT BACK INTO THE SOCKET. THE VISOR CANNOT BE PIVOTED TO THE LEFT DRIVER SIDE, IT FALLS EVERY TIME.THE VISOR CAN ONLY REMAIN PARKED OR UNFOLDED WITHOUT DETACHING ITSELF FROM THE CAR. I FACE THE SUN DURING MY COMMUTE TO AND FROM WORK, SO NOT HAVING FULL ACCESS TO MY VISOR IS TROUBLESOME FOR MY VISION. I TOOK MY CAR IN FOR AN OIL CHANGE AND THE DEALER SAID, "IT SEEMS FINE TO ME." THE PROBLEM STILL EXISTS. I AM RELUCTANT TO PIVOT THE VISOR TO TAKE A PHOTO BECAUSE IT TAKES SO LONG TO GET IT BACK INTO THE SOCKET.

WHY SHOULD I PAY FOR A KNOWN ISSUE BY THE MANUFACTURER. IVE ALWAYS BEEN A ADVOCATE FOR HONDA VEHICLES BUT THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE AND A RECALL NEEDS TO BE MADE TO FIX THIS AND THE PISTONS LEADING TO THE EXCESSIVE OIL CONSUMPTION.

Summary

I WAS UNABLE TO OPEN THE REAR PASSENGER SIDE DOOR, EVEN AFTER UNLOCKING THE DOOR. THIS COULD BE AN EXTREME SAFETY HAZARD IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH, SHOULD EMERGENCY RESPONDERS NEED TO GAIN IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO THE CAR AND A PASSENGER WAS UNRESPONSIVE. THE POWER DOOR LOCK ACTUATOR FAILED, WHICH CAUSES THE DOOR LOCK TO STAY ENGAGED EVEN AFTER UNLOCKING THE CAR USING THE REMOTE FOB AND USING THE POWER LOCK BUTTON ON THE DOOR. THE ONLY WAY TO UNLOCK THE DOOR IS TO MANUALLY FLIP THE INTERIOR DOOR LOCK SWITCH. THIS IS THE SECOND POWER DOOR LOCK ACTUATOR TO FAIL, AND MY CAR HAS LESS THAN 93,000 MILES ON IT. THE POWER DOOR LOCKS SHOULD LAST THE LIFE OF THE CAR, AND DOORS THAT STAY LOCKED ARE AN EXTREME SAFETY HAZARD. HONDA CHARGES $298, PER ACTUATOR, MAKING COMPLETE REPAIR CLOSE TO $1,200. MY GUESS IS MOST PEOPLE WOULD CHOOSE TO LIVE WITH THE ISSUE RATHER THAN PAY THE HIGH REPAIR COST, BUT THEY DON'T THINK ABOUT WHAT COULD HAPPEN IF THEY ARE UNRESPONSIVE, THE CAR IS IN FLAMES, AND THE DOORS WON'T OPEN FROM THE OUTSIDE. I SPOKE WITH HONDA CORPORATE ABOUT THE ISSUE, AND THEY PROVIDED NO RESPONSE. THEY JUST SAID "WE DOCUMENT YOUR CALL." VERY FRUSTRATING.

Summary

EXCESSIVE OIL CONSUMPTION WITH EARLY REPLACEMENT OF SPARK PLUGS IN 2010 HONDA ACCORD V6. ALL SPARK PLUGS WERE REPLACED AROUND 65K MILES DUE TO AN "COMPUTER ISSUE" ACCORDING TO MY LOCAL HONDA DEALERSHIP. I WAS INFORMED AT THE TIME THAT THE WARRANTY HAD BEEN EXTENDED TO COVER THE COMPUTER ISSUE NOT AN OIL CONSUMPTION ISSUE. WAS ALSO INFORMED THE ISSUE WAS FIXED. THE OIL IS NOW CHANGED EVERY 3K MILES (WHICH DIFFERS FROM RECOMMENDATIONS FROM HONDA TO CHANGE THE OIL ACCORDING TO THE MAINTENANCE MINDER VARYING BETWEEN 4K AND 5K MILES) AND HAVING TO ADD .5 TO A FULL QUART OF OIL EVERY THOUSAND MILES. THERE HAVE BEEN NO OIL STAINS WHERE I PARK ON A REGULAR BASIS, LEADING TO BELIEVE IT IS NOT LEAKING BUT BURNING OR BEING CONSUMED. THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT HAS COME ON MULTIPLE TIMES AND USUALLY PULLS THE CODE THAT A CYLINDER IS MISFIRING. THE OIL LIGHT NEVER COMES ON EVEN WHEN THE OIL BARLEY READS ON THE DIP STICK. THIS HAS BEEN AN ISSUE FOR OVER 2 YEARS.

CAR STALLED IN MIDDLE OF ROAD WITH ENGINE LIGHT ON. UPON CHECKING MECHANIC FOUND THAT THERE WAS HARDLY ANY OIL LEFT. LOW OIL LIGHT DIDN'T LIGHT UP AS IT SHOULD. THIS WAS VERY STRANGE AS I MAINTAIN MY VEHICLE REAL WELL WITH REGULAR OIL CHANGES ETC. UPON RESEARCHING ONLINE IT SEEMS HONDA CARS CONSUMING OIL IS TOP ISSUE REPORTED BY CONSUMERS, CHECK THIS FORUM... HTTP://WWW.HONDAPROBLEMS.COM/TRENDS/EXCESSIVE-OIL-CONSUMPTION/ THERE WAS A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AND HONDA AGREED TO FIX ISSUE VIA SOFTWARE UPGRADE, PLEASE REFER TO TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN (TSB #11-033) IN JULY OF 2011 THAT ACKNOWLEDGED THE PROBLEM. HOWEVER, ONLY CERTAIN V6 MODELS WERE COVERED AND V4 ETC. WERE NOT COVERED APART FROM OTHER MODELS. THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND, I BEING AN ENGINEER, THAT THIS IS SAME ISSUE THAT HONDA NEEDS TO EXPAND IT INVESTIGATION TO AND RECALL/FIX IT. THIS IS AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS PROBLEM AND WE ARE BLESSED THAT OUR VEHICLE DIDN'T STALL ON FREEWAY, EVEN THOUGH IT STALLED ON SURFACE STREET DURING COMMUTE HOURS AND WE WERE LUCKY TO BE NOT HIT.

Summary

DOOR LOCK ACTUATORS HAVE STOPPED LOCKING AND UNLOCKING THE DOORS ON THREE OF THE FOURS DOORS OF THE CAR. I HAVE TO MANUALLY LOCK AND UNLOCK THE DRIVERS DOOR WITH THE KEY IN ORDER TO LOCK IT. THE TWO REAR PASSENGER DOORS DO NOT UNLOCK VIA THE INTERIOR UNLOCK BUTTON ON THE DRIVER SIDE AND MUST BE MANUALLY UNLOCKED AND LOCKED BY FLIPPING THE DOOR LOCK ITSELF ON EACH DOOR. THIS IS RIDICULOUS FOR A CAR THAT IS ONLY 7 YEARS OLD .. TO HAVE ALL THREE DOOR AFFECTED IS FAULTY EQUIPMENT AND NOT INCORRECT USE. THIS HAS BEEN HAPPENING FOR ABOUT 5 MONTHS BUT WE INITIALLY THOUGHT IT WAS THE BATTERY IN THE ELECTRONIC KEYS. AFTER REPLACING IT AND THE PROBLEMS CONTINUING THE CAR WAS BROUGHT IN FOR DIAGNOSTICS AND WE WERE TOLD THE 3 ACTUATORS NEEDED TO BE REPLACED.

THE ACTION WAS SPONTANEOUS. IT STOPPED ONLY WHEN I UNLOCKED THE CAR DOOR. WHEN I STARTED THE CAR LATER IN THE MORNING AT LEAST FOUR SAFETY WARNINGS APPEARED INCLUDING "BRAKES" ON THE INSTRUMENT PANEL. THIS BEHAVIOR WAS CONFIRMED BY THE DEALER DARCARS HONDA IN BOWIE MARYLAND, WHERE IT WAS ATTRIBUTED TO A FUSE BOX WHICH MUST BE REPLACED.

Summary

MY 2010 V4 HONDA ACCORD IS BURNING EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS OF OIL. AFTER DOING THE OIL CONSUMPTION TEST THOUGH HONDA, THEY DETERMINED THAT MY ENGINE BURNED 2.5 QUARTS OF OIL IN APPROXIMATELY 5,100 MILES. I BELIEVE THAT THE AMOUNT IS ACTUALLY GREATER BECAUSE THEY SAID THAT AS LONG AS IT DOES NOT CONSUME 1 QUART PER 1,000 MILES THAT THIS IS NORMAL AND THEY WILL NOT FIX IT. I KNOW THEY HAVE SETTLED A CLASS-ACTION SUIT FOR THE V6 MODEL, BUT CHOSE NOT TO INCLUDE THE V4 MODELS THAT HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM! HOW CAN IT BE NORMAL TO BURN THROUGH MORE THAN HALF OF THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF MOTOR OIL IN BETWEEN OIL CHANGES? I NOW HAVE A CAR THAT HAS AN ENGINE THAT HAS NOT BEEN PROPERLY LUBRICATED FOR I AM NOT SURE HOW LONG BECAUSE I PURCHASED IT USED. I MAY BE HAVING TO REPLACE MY ENGINE BEFORE I AM EVEN HALF WAY THROUGH MY LOAN. *TR

MY SRS LIGHT CAME ON AND WHEN I TOOK IT TO HONDA OF FISHERS IN INDIANA I WAS TOLD IT WOULD BE A $100 JUST TO RUN THE DIAGNOSTICS AND SINCE MY SPECIFIC MODEL OF CAR ISN'T UNDER A CURRENT RECALL I WOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR ANY REPAIRS NEEDED OUT OF POCKET. THIS DOESN'T SEEM FAIR AS MY CAR SHOULD HAVE A LIFETIME WARRANTY ON SEAT BELTS AND RELATED SRS COMPONENTS. I WOULD THINK THEY WOULD AT LEAST PROVIDE A FREE DIAGNOSTICS TO MAKE SURE MY AIRBAGS WILL WORK CORRECTLY AS PART OF A SAFETY MATTER. I FOUND MANY 2010 ACCORDS WERE RECALLED BUT APPARENTLY MY ACCORD COUPE WASN'T.

TAKATA RECALL? (NO MENTION OF THE AIRBAG MANUFACTURER WAS MADE IN THE RECALL LETTER). I RECEIVED A RECALL NOTICE FROM HONDA IN JULY OF 2016.

ALSO STATING THAT "HONDA SUGGESTS THAT YOU AVOID HAVING A PASSENGER SIT IN THE FRONT PASSENGER'S SEAT UNTIL THE RECALL REPAIR HAS BEEN PERFORMED". THIS WAS 6 MONTHS AGO. 6 MONTHS IS A LONG TIME TO OPERATE A VEHICLE WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO HAVE A PASSENGER IN THE FRONT SEAT. I DID STOP IN THE DEALERSHIP WHERE I PURCHASED THE CAR AND THEY ASSURED ME I WOULD BE CONTACTED WHEN PARTS BECAME AVAILABLE. I HAVE NOT HEARD ANYTHING BACK FROM HONDA.

IT HAD A HOLE IN THE MIDDLE OF IT AND IT LOOK AS THOUGH IT HAD COME FROM THE INSIDE AS THE REMAINING GLASS WAS PROTRUDING UPWARD. I CONTACTED THE DEALER WHO SOLD ME THE CAR AND THEY STATED IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE. I GOOGLE TO SEE HOW MUCH IT WOULD COST TO REPAIR IT AS THE DEALER STATED THEY WOULD NOT, THAT IS WHEN I FOUND OUT THAT THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM, SO I AM REPORTING MY ISSUES IN HOPES THAT THE CAR MANUFACTURERS WILL TAKE THIS SERIOUS BEFORE SOMEONE IS KILLED. *TR

Summary

I WAS DRIVING AS USUAL TO WORK ON I-405 WITH 55-60M/H SPEED AND SUDDENLY HEARD A BLAST, LIKE SOMEBODY SHOT ME THROUGH WINDOW. I WAS IN SUCH A SHOCK THAT ALMOST LOST CONTROL OF MY STEERING. BUT SOMEHOW MANAGED TO STAY IN LANE. AS MY OFFICE WAS PRETTY CLOSE, I DECIDED TO INSPECT WHAT HAPPENED AFTER REACHING THERE. HOWEVER, WHILE DRIVING TO OFFICE, I CONTINUED TO BE SCARED AND IN TRAUMA AND COULD ALSO HEAR AIR COMING IN THE CAR. BY THE TIME I REACHED OFFICE I HAD A HINT THAT SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH MY SUNROOF, OR IT IS OPEN. AFTER COMING OUT OF MY CAR IN THE OFFICE PARKING I SAW THIS HUGE HOLE IN THE SUNROOF GLASS. AND PIECES OF GLASS SHATTERED IN THE SUNROOF FLAP. BECAUSE OF SEATTLE'S DARK CLOUDY CLIMATE, I USUALLY KEEP MY SUNROOF FLAP OPEN FOR SOME LIGHT TO COME INTO MY LUCK, THIS MORNING IT WAS CLOSED. OTHERWISE, MY FOUR MONTHS OLD ALMOST LOST HER MOTHER OR I COULD BE MISERABLY HURT WITH TINY GLASS PIECES. FOLLOWING DAY ON SATURDAY,12/31/2016, I CALLED LOCAL HONDA SERVICE MANAGER, AND HE SAID IT WILL COST ME $770 FOR FIXING THE SUNROOF. HE SAID HONDA WILL NOT COVER IT BECAUSE THE SUNROOF GLASS HAD WARRANTY LIMITED TO 3 YEARS AND 30,000MILES WHICH IS EXPIRED. SO, INDIRECTLY HONDA SAID, WE WILL KEEP ON SUPPLYING FAULTY SUNROOF GLASS. IF IT EXPLODES WITHIN WARRANTY PERIOD, WE WILL AT THE LEAST COVER FOR IT. AND IF YOUR WARRANTY IS EXPIRED AND YOU DIE BECAUSE OF IT, WE DON'T CARE. ALSO, HONDA SAID THAT I CANNOT GET SUNROOF GLASS FIXED BEFORE TUESDAY, 1/3/2017 BECAUSE THEY CAN'T GET THE GLASS ORDERED BEFORE TUESDAY AS EVERYBODY INCLUDING HONDA ARE VACATIONING FOR NEW YEARS. AS THERE WAS SNOW STORM WARNING ON 12/31/2016 AND MY HUSBAND WAS OUT OF TOWN, I IN SEVERE COUGH AND COLD HAD TO RUSH TO NEAREST LOWES WITH MY 4 MONTHS OLD ALSO COUGHING, TO GET A TARP AND DUCT TAPE, SO THAT I COULD SEAL THE SUNROOF AND PROTECT THE CAR'S INTERIORS. *TR

Summary

I BOUGHT MY 2010 HONDA ACCORD 2DR LX-S (5A) BRAND NEW IN AUGUST 2010 AND HAVE HAD SEVERAL ISSUES WITH IT SINCE - MOST OF WHICH HAS GOTTEN WORSE THAT I AM SCARED FOR MY SAFETY AND THOSE ON THE ROAD. - WHILE DRIVING ON BOTH HIGHWAY AND NON HIGHWAY SPEEDS RANGING FROM 15MPH - 60MPH SEVERE RUBBER SMELL AND GRINDING OF BRAKES-SOUNDED AS IF THE ENTIRE CAR WAS GOING TO FALL APART. WHEN I GOT HOME THE REAR BRAKES AND PADS WERE COMPLETELY RUSTED, BLACK AND WERE EXTREMELY HOT TO TOUCH. SCHAUMBURG DEALERSHIP SAID THE REAR PADS WEREN'T INSTALLED CORRECTLY. -EVERYDAY SINCE MILE 25,000 MY CAR WHEN STARTED AT ANY TIME HAS MADE A LARGE AND EXTREMELY LOUD CRANKING NOISE THAT LASTS ABOUT 2 SECONDS. SCHAUMBURG DEALERSHIP DAYS THIS IS RELATED TO THE I-VTEC 4-CYLINDER ENGINE BUT IT WAS NO LONGER UNDER WARRANTY. (THIS WAS AT 71,000 MILES). NO FUSS HAD BEEN MADE HAD THEY SAID IT IS COMPLETELY FINE WITH THE CRANKING NOISE. -WHEN TURNING AND DRIVING IN GENERAL THE CAR MAKES A WEIRD WHINING NOISE FROM 0MPH - 45MPH I'VE NOTICED THIS MANY TIMES AS WHEN TURNING LEFT OR RIGHT MY VEHICLE IAS EXTREMELY UNEVEN. THIS ALSO COULD RELATE TO THE STARTING WHEEL BEING 5 INCHES TO THE RIGHT WHEN THE WHEELS ARE STRAIGHT; I'VE PAID FOR MULTIPLE ALIGNMENTS AND IT CONTINUES TO HAPPEN. -LASTLY THE BREAKING SYSTEM IS TERRIBLE AND DOES NOT STOP CORRECTLY. I NOW HAVE TO SLOW DOWN ALMOST TO A COMPLETE STOP 500 FEET PRIOR SO THEY WORK; I HAVE TO DRIVE EXTREMELY SLOW AND BE VERY CAUTIOUS. *TR

CAR CONSUMES OIL BETWEEN OIL CHANGES. IT WILL TAKE 2-3 QUARTS OF MOTOR OIL BETWEEN SERVICING. FOUND NO OIL LEAK. OIL LEVELS CAN DROP REALLY LOW AND OIL LIGHT INDICATOR DOES NOT TURN ON. VEHICLE HAS A GRINDING NOISE FOR A FEW SECONDS ON A COLD START. VEHICLE COMPUTER WAS UPDATED/PROGRAMMED PREVIOUSLY BY HONDA TO ELIMINATE EXCESS OIL CONSUMPTION. VEHICLE STILL HAS EXCESSIVE OIL CONSUMPTION ISSUE, AS WELL AS THE LOW OIL INDICATOR FAILING TO ILLUMINATE. OIL LIGHT INDICATOR CAN CAUSE EXCESSIVE DAMAGE TO THE ENGINE IF THE OIL LEVEL IS LOW, BECAUSE IT FAILS TO WARN THE DRIVER WHEN THE OIL LEVEL IS LOW, ESPECIALLY SINCE THIS VEHICLE HAS AN EXCESSIVE OIL CONSUMPTION ISSUE. THERE HAVE BEEN NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS ISSUE AND HONDA HAS FAILED TO RECALL VEHICLES FOR THIS ISSUE.

TAKATA RECALL: I RECEIVED THE TAKATA AIR BAG RECALL NOTICE IN THE MAIL OVER 40 DAYS AFTER IT WAS ISSUED. THE PARTS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE UNTIL FALL OF 2016. THE REMEDY HONDA PROVIDED IS TO "NOT HAVE A PASSENGER SIT IN THE FRONT SEAT." THIS IS INSANE. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE? SOMEONE HAS BEEN SITING IN MY FRONT SEAT FOR THE PAST 40 DAYS BEFORE I RECEIVED THE RECALL AND NOW MY CAR IS BASICALLY INOPERABLE FOR PASSENGERS FOR THE NEXT 3-6 MONTHS? THIS IS NOT A SUFFICIENT REMEDY OF A PRODUCTS COMPLETED MISTAKE BY HONDA. WE SHOULD BE PROVIDED RENTAL CARS AND RENTAL REIMBURSEMENT UNTIL THE CARS ARE FIXED. I HAVE ALREADY CALLED HONDA'S CUSTOMER SUPPORT NUMBER AND WAS TOLD I WOULD GET A CALL BY A "CASE MANAGER" IN THREE DAYS. THIS IS EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTING AND COMPLETELY DANGEROUS. THE RECALL VERBATIM LISTS " METAL FRAGMENTS COULD PASS THROUGH THE AIRBAG CAUSING INJURY TO THE PASSENGER". WELL WHY WOULDN'T THOSE FRAGMENTS HURT SOMEONE IN THE BACKSEAT OR COME OVER TO THE DRIVER SIDE? HONDA IS BASICALLY SAYING IF YOU GET IN A CAR CRASH AND YOUR AIRBAG DEPLOYS YOU ARE GOING TO GET HURT. PLEASE HELP HONDA BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THIS GRIEVANCE.

Summary

BURNING OIL EXCESSIVELY SINCE I HAVE HAD THE CAR. I NEVER GOT A RECALL NOTICE. HAVING TO ADD A QT OR BETTER A WEEK. JUNE 12 IT STALLED OUT ALL THE WAY HOME FROM WORK. THAT WAS A SUNDAY. JUST CHECKED THE OIL ON THURSDAY. OIL WAS OKAY IN THURSDAY. ON SUNDAY NO OIL TO SHOW ON DIPSTICK. BURNT AT LEAST 3 QTS IN LESS THAN 200 MILES! DRAINED WHAT LITTLE OIL WAS LEFT. CHANGED FILTER AND PUT NEW OIL IN. STILL WOULD NOT RUN. CHANGED SPARK PLUGS AND IT RAN BETTER BUT STILL HAS A SLIGHT MIS. DTC P0303. THE DEALERSHIP DELETED THE CODE AND SAID IT WASN'T A CODE IN THERE. WILL NOT DO ANYTHING. I HAD IT READ BEFORE I TOOK IT THERE AND HAVE A PICTURE OF IT. THE PAINT HAS BEEN CHIPPING OFF FOR OVER A YEAR, NOT WHERE ROCKS HIT. PLACES THAT ARE CURVED OR ROUNDED. EDGES OF THE ROOF OR FENDER. IT'S ONLY 6 YEARS OLD. HONDA DOESN'T STAND BY EITHER OF THESE ISSUES. NEVER AGAIN WILL I OWN A HONDA. THE CAR IS NOT LEAKING OIL AND IT IS NOT SMOKING. THE OIL IS GOING SOME PLACE. AND THAT IS CAUSING SERIOUS DAMAGE TO MY CAR. NOT TO MENTION THE DAMAGE THAT'S ALREADY BEEN CAUSED. A SOFTWARE UPDATE DOESN'T FIX THE DAMAGE THAT'S BEEN CAUSED ALREADY.

THREE MONTHS AFTER I BOUGHT THE HONDA, THE TPMS LIGHT CAME ON, AND WHEN I CALLED THE SERVICE DEPT. AT THE DEALERSHIP WHERE I BOUGHT IT, THEY TOLD ME IT WAS THE CHANGE IN TEMPERATURE AND I SHOULD JUST "DRIVE AROUND THE BLOCK" UNTIL IT GOES OUT. IT DID GO OUT, BUT SEVEN MONTHS LATER THE TPMS LIGHT CAME ON AGAIN. I AGAIN CALLED THE DEALERSHIP AND THEY SAID TO BRING IT IN, AND IT WOULD BE FIXED AT NO CHARGE. HOWEVER, WHEN I BROUGHT IT IN, I WAS TOLD I'D HAVE TO PAY $240 BECAUSE THE SENSOR WAS BAD. HAVING RESEARCHED THE ISSUE, I SEE THERE HAVE BEEN MANY COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS SENSOR PROBLEM, THAT HONDA KNOWS ABOUT IT, THAT THEY LIED TO ME ABOUT "DRIVING AROUND THE BLOCK." THEN THEY LIED AGAIN, TELLING ME THEY WOULD FIX IT AT NO CHARGE.

AS I READ NUMEROUS FORUMS AND ARTICLES ONLINE, MANY OTHERS HAVE REPORTED THE SAME ISSUES WITH THEIR 8TH GENERATION ACCORD, YET HONDA HAS NOT BEEN TOLD TO ISSUE A RECALL. OBVIOUSLY THESE CONVERTERS WERE POORLY MADE AND IT IS GOING TO COST NEARLY 1000$ TO FIX THIS.

Summary

WHILE DRIVING ON 414 MAITLAND, OUT OF NO WHERE I HEARD A LOUD "POW!" THOUGH I DIDN'T FEEL LIKE IT, I THOUGHT A BIRD OR METEORITE OR STREET LIGHT COVER HAD FALLEN FROM THE SKY AND LANDED ON MY VEHICLE. I LOOKED IN THE REAR VIEW MIRROR AND SAW A BLACK SQUARE OBJECT FALL FROM THE SKY AND THE CAR BEHIND SWERVE OUT OF ITS WAY. AT THAT POINT I COULD HEAR SMALL PIECES OF SOMETHING BOUNCING AROUND IN THE POCKET BETWEEN THE MOON ROOF AND THE COVER, AND ROLLING ON, OVER AND OFF OF THE MY CAR. I PULLED OVER TO INVESTIGATE THE MATTER MORE THOROUGHLY, EXPECTING TO SEE A DEAD BIRD, BLOOD & FEATHERS, OR A ROCK, OR A STREET LIGHT COVER SITTING IN THE AREA WHERE MY MOON ROOF GLASS USE TO BE, INSTEAD I FOUND A HUGE GAPING HOLE(APPROX. 12" X 17" IN THE MIDDLE OF MY MOON ROOD AND THE REMAINDER OF THE GLASS AROUND THE PERIMETER OF THE HOLE ARCHED LIKE A HILL. I DETERMINED THAT THE "POW!" I HEARD WAS THE GLASS EXPLODING, AND THE BLACK PIECE OF SOMETHING THAT WAS FALLING FROM THE SKY IN MY REAR VIEW WAS THE PORTION OF GLASS. I IT WAS CLOUDY AND LOOKED LIKE IT MIGHT RAN, SO I IMMEDIATELY WENT TO THE NEAREST SHOP (PUBLIX) AND BOUGHT A BOX OF 2 MIL CONTRACTOR GARAGE BAGS, SOME SHIPPING TAPE AND TAPED ONE OF THE BAGS OF THE TOP OF THE VEHICLE. I THEN RETRACED MY PATH I THE INTERSTATE TO MAKE SURE THAT SOMETHING DIDN'T FALL FROM THE SKY AND THAT THE GLASS HAD IN FACT EXPLODED. I FOUND NOTHING, EXCEPT THE SHARDS OF GLASS THAT WAS ONCE MY MOON ROOF. I THEN WENT HOME, PARKED THE CAR AND BEGAN RESEARCH "EXPLODING MOON ROOF". COME TO FIND OUT THIS IS NOT AN ALIEN OCCURRENCE AND SPECIFICALLY WITH THIS MANUFACTURER, YEAR, MAKE & MODEL.

I AM HAVING AN OIL CONSUMPTION PROBLEM AT LEAST 3 QUARTS IN BETWEEN OIL CHANGES THIS HAS BEEN GETTING WORSE AND STARTED ALMOST IMMEDIATELY AFTER PURCHASE. THIS PAST FEBRUARY IT STARTED MISSING AND I HAD A LOSS OF POWER WHILE ON THE HIGHWAY ON THE WAY TO WORK. I TOOK IT IN AND THE HONDA DEALERSHIP REPLACED FOUR FOULED SPARK PLUGS AND SAID IF IT HAPPENED AGAIN THEY WOULD REPLACE THE RINGS IN THE ENGINE, IN TOTAL I WILL HAVE TAKEN THE CAR TO THE HONDA DEALERSHIP 6 TIMES FOR THIS PROBLEM AND I AM GETTING VERY TIRED OF TAKING IT IN SO THEY CAN TELL ME THAT THEY FIXED THE PROBLEM. WITH THE LOSS OF POWER I COULD HAVE BEEN IN A SERIOUS ACCIDENT AND I AM CONCERNED ABOUT THE ENGINE FAILING EVERY TIME I DRIVE THE CAR. I WOULD CONSIDER THIS CAR UNSAFE BECAUSE IT COULD FAIL AT ANYTIME AND LEAVE ME STRANDED OR WORSE IT COULD FAIL WHEN I AM PULLING INTO TRAFFIC OR MERGING ONTO A HIGHWAY.

MY CAR BURNS TOO MUCH OIL BETWEEN OIL CHANGES. I HAVE CONTACTED HONDA AND VEHICLE CHECKED OUT 5 TIMES NOW FOR THE PROBLEM, THE DEALERSHIP TOLD ME THAT FOR MY VEHICLE TO GET FIXED IN THE OIL CONSUMPTION CLASS ACTION SUIT IT HAD TO HAVE THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COME ON TWICE, ETC. I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THIS THE 1ST TIME THE LIGHT CAME ON I LOST ABOUT 50% OF THE POWER OF THE VEHICLE WHEN I WAS TRAVELLING ON A VERY BUSY HIGHWAY, I HAD TO CHANGE LANES AND SLOW DOWN BECAUSE I COULDN'T KEEP UP AND MY VEHICLE WAS SHAKING SO BADLY. IT TURNS OUT THAT MY OIL CONSUMPTION PROBLEM HAD FOULED THE SPARK PLUGS AND CAUSED THEM TO STOP FIRING WHICH MEANS I LOST THE POWER OF THE CYLINDERS THAT HAD THE FOULED SPARK PLUGS. NOW THEY WANT ME TO WAIT TILL IT HAPPENS AGAIN BEFORE THEY WILL REPAIR THE ENGINE AND FOLLOW THE CLASS ACTION THAT THEY AGREED TO FOLLOW. WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF I WAS PULLING INTO TRAFFIC AND LOST 50% OF MY POWER OR AM MERGING ONTO AN INTERSTATE. THIS IS A DANGEROUS SITUATION AND THEY KNOW THE PROBLEM EXIST, BUT WON'T FIX IT IN A TIMELY MANNER. I AM CONCERNED ABOUT DRIVING THE VEHICLE.

Summary

I RECEIVED A LETTER FROM HONDA STATING THAT MY CAR MAY HAVE A DEFECT IN THE PISTONS, AND/OR PISTON RINGS THAT CAUSES EXCESSIVE OIL USAGE. AS A RESULT OF THIS HONDA WOULD DIAGNOSE AND REPAIR THE PROBLEM BUT ONLY UP TO 125,000 MILES. AT THE TIME I RECEIVED THE LETTER MY CAR HAD 150,000 MILES. I HAVE NOTICED EXCESSIVE OIL USAGE IN MY 2010 HONDA ACCORD WHEN COMPARED TO MY 2004 HONDA ACCORD WITH THE SAME 2.4 LITER 4 CYLINDER ENGINE. THE 2010 REQUIRES OIL FREQUENTLY BUT THE 2004 RARELY REQUIRES OIL BETWEEN OIL CHANGES. I CALLED HONDA OF AMERICA ON 2 SEPARATE OCCASIONS AND SPOKE TO 3 DIFFERENT PEOPLE AFTER I ASKED FOR MY CASE TO BE ESCALATED TO A HIGHER LEVEL. THEY HAVE REFUSED TO DO ANYTHING FOR ME. MY OPINION IS THAT NO MANUFACTURER SHOULD BE ABLE TO SHIRK THEIR DUTY TO REPAIR OR REPLACE A KNOWN DEFECT. ESPECIALLY WHEN I HAVE EVIDENCE THAT SHOWS THEIR ARBITRARY CHOICE OF EXTENDING THE ENGINE WARRANTY TO 125,000 MILES IS NONSENSE. MY 2004 ACCORD HAS MORE MILES THAN THE 2010 BUT DOESN'T REQUIRE OIL BETWEEN OIL CHANGES. THAT TELLS ME THAT THE 2010 WITH FEWER MILES MAY SUFFER FROM THIS KNOWN DEFECT THAT HONDA HAS A RESPONSIBILITY TO REPAIR REGARDLESS OF THE MILES ON THE CAR.

Summary

I AM IN A DILEMMA PERTAINING TO MY 2010 HONDA ACCORD. I LIVE IN CANADA BUT I PURCHASED A DEMO MODEL FROM UNITED STATES. DURING THE LAST FIVE YEARS I HAD FOUR INCIDENTS OF UNINTENDED ACCELERATION WHILE BRAKING. AS I WAS SLOWING DOWN AT TRAFFIC LIGHTS OR STOP SIGN, THE CAR SUDDENLY GOES INTO UNINTENDED ACCELERATION WITH RPM RUNNING OVER 4500. I CONTINUED TO PRESS ON THE BRAKE AND CHANGED THE GEAR TO NEUTRAL. THE CAR CONTINUED TO REV AT HIGH SPEED DESPITE NOT PRESSING ON ANY PEDALS, AND THE ONLY WAY TO STOP IT WAS TO SWITCH OFF THE ENGINE WHILE THE CAR IS IN NEUTRAL AND THEN SWITCH IT ON AGAIN AFTER PUTTING THE CAR IN P GEAR. I AM 100 % CERTAIN THAT THESE INCIDENTS ARE NOT RELATED TO DRIVER ERROR AS IT HAS HAPPENED FOUR TIMES. I PHONED AMERICAN HONDA AND HONDA CANADA AND BOTH BRUSHED ME OFF AND DENIED EVER HEARING ABOUT IT. THEY ADVISED ME TO TAKE IT TO THE DEALER. IT WOULD BE VERY DIFFICULT TO ISOLATE THIS FAULT AS IT RARELY HAPPENS (4 TIMES IN FIVE YEARS).I AM WORRIED ABOUT THE SAFETY OF MY FAMILY ESPECIALLY IF MY WIFE OR MY DAUGHTERS ARE DRIVING. I WILL BE GRATEFUL IF YOU CAN LET ME IF OTHER DRIVERS HAVE REPORTED A SIMILAR INCIDENT FOR HONDA AUTOMOBILE. I ALSO NEED SOME ADVICE ON HOW I CAN RESOLVE THIS. IS THIS A SOFTWARE PROBLEM?

Summary

THE PAST TWO TIMES I HAVE BROUGHT THE CAR IN FOR AN OIL CHANGE I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT THE OIL LEVEL IS BELOW THE DIPSTICK. BOTH TIMES I HAVE BROUGHT THE CAR IN FOR AN OIL CHANGE WITH 20% OIL LIFE SHOWING. SHIFTING FROM 2ND TO 3RD SOMETIMES GETS "BLOCKED". THAT IS THE ONLY WAY I CAN DESCRIBE IT, YOU GO TO SHIFT AND CANT GET INTO GEAR, EITHER HAVE TO GO BACK TO 2ND OR BACK TO NEUTRAL AND THEN BACK IN. THE "DOUBLE PUMP SHIFT" USUALLY WORKS. I HAVE ALSO HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE SPEAKER DECK RATTLING WHICH I HAD SUPPOSEDLY FIXED UNDER WARRANTY BUT ONLY TO HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM.

Summary

WHEN DRIVING ON THE FREEWAY ON MY WAY TO WORK THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON. AFTER EXITING I CHECKED FOR ERROR CODES (AS I ALWAYS CARRY THE P-CODE READER WITH ME). THE CODE STATED THAT CYLINDER 3 WAS MISFIRING. I DOUBLE CHECKED ALL SPARK PLUGS TO MAKE SURE THE CONNECTIONS WERE OKAY. THE ENGINE LIGHT CONTINUED TO COME ON, WITH A ROUGH IDLE, AND ENGINE CODES STARTED TO BE MORE SPONTANEOUS AS IT STATED RANDOM MISFIRES/MULTIPLE CYLINDER MISFIRES. I TOOK MY CAR TO HONDA AND WAS TOLD THAT I LIKELY NEED TO REPLACE THE IGNITION COIL, SO I DID THAT AND STILL EXPERIENCED THE SAME PROBLEM. I THEN TOOK IT TO A SHOP WHERE THEY ALSO SUSPECTED BAD IGNITION COILS. THEY THEN DID A VALVE ADJUSTMENT AND WAS POSITIVE THAT WOULD FIX THE PROBLEM. AFTER PERFORMING THAT JOB, THE CAR CONTINUED WITH THE SAME ROUGH IDLE BUT ONLY POPULATED THE ERROR CODE STATING CYLINDER 3 IS MISFIRING. THEY TOOK OUT THE SPARK PLUG AND IGNITION COIL ON CYLINDER 3 AND DISCOVERED A CRACKED INTAKE VALVE. I'VE SPOKEN TO AT LEAST 10 SHOPS, 2 HONDA SERVICE DEALERSHIPS, AND 2 PERSONAL MECHANIC FRIENDS THAT ALL STATE THAT A BROKEN INTAKE VALVE AT 107K IS VERY UNUSUAL AND LIKELY A RESULT OF POOR DESIGN. I HAVE READ ABOUT THE CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT FOR ALL V6 HONDA ACCORDS BETWEEN 2008-2012. UNFORTUNATELY THE 2010 V6 6 MT IS ONE OF THE FEW MODELS LEFT OUT OF THAT LAW SUIT. I HAVE ALREADY HAD A SHOP START ON THE REPAIRS AS I HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO HAVE THEM DONE ASAP. I FIGURE AN UNLIKELY EVENT LIKE THIS IS DUE TO POOR ENGINE DESIGN SINCE I HAVE THOROUGHLY KEPT UP WITH ALL SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE (SPARK PLUGS, TIMING BELT, WATER PUMP, OIL CHANGE, ETC..). I FEEL THAT HONDA SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS 2000$ DOLLAR REPAIR.

I HAVE HAD TO CHANGE MY ROTORS BRAKES AND CALIPERS 4 TIMES SINCE LAST AUGUST. I JUST CHANGED THE ROTORS AND BRAKES FOR THE 3RD ABOUT 3 MONTHS AGO AND THEY ARE GRINDING AGAIN. I WENT OUT FOR LUNCH AND WHEN I GET BACK TO WORK I HEAR A GRINDING. I GET TO WORK AND LOOK AND ITS ON THE ROTOR. THIS IS RIDICULOUS, I DO NOT KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO. MIND YOU IN OCTOBER ON A ROAD TRIP THE CALIPER MALFUNCTIONED AND I HAD TO DRIVE WITH THE BRAKE CLAMPED DOWN ON THE ROTOR. COST ME $850 TO FIX! THIS IS RIDICULOUS

Summary

DURING A RECENT INSPECTION, I WAS TOLD THAT MY BRAKES BARELY PASSED AND WOULD ONLY LAST APPROXIMATELY ANOTHER 3,000 MILES. I HAVE 17,000 MILES ON MY HONDA! I INHERITED THIS CAR LAST YEAR FROM MY UNCLE WHO PASSED. HE PURCHASED THE CAR NEW IN 2010 AND PUT LESS THAN 4,000 MILES ON IT IN 4 YEARS. I HEARD THERE WAS A PROBLEM WITH THE BRAKES OF CERTAIN YEARS ON ACCORDS, INCLUDING THE ONE I HAVE. I WAS ALSO TOLD THAT HONDA WOULD FIX THIS AS A COURTESY TO OWNERS BECAUSE THERE WERE SO MANY COMPLAINTS. IN 2015, THIS IS NO LONGER AN OPTION. AT NO POINT HAS HONDA RECALLED THE VEHICLE. HOW CAN THEY GET AWAY WITH PUTTING SUCH CHEAP PRODUCTS ON A VEHICLE THAT COSTS MORE THAN 30K? THIS IS A LAWSUIT WAITING TO HAPPEN. I WILL FIGHT THIS AND MAKE SUCH A BIG STINK UNTIL THIS PROBLEM IS CLEARED. AT NO POINT SHOULD I HAVE TO PAY TO REPLACE BRAKES AT 17,000 MILES. THIS IS ABSURD. WHAT CAN I DO AT THIS POINT?

Summary

I BOUGHT MY CAR NEW IN 2010 HONDA ACCORD 4 CYLINDER. I HAD BEEN TAKING MY CAR TO GET THE OIL CHANGED ON A REGULAR BASIS TO THE HONDA DEALERSHIP. SINCE BEGINNING OF THIS YEAR, MY CAR STARTED MAKING NOISE SO IT TOOK IT TO DEALER TO CHECK THE REASON. HE TOLD THAT ME THAT MY CAR IS OUT OF OIL EVEN THOUGH INDICATOR SAY OIL LEVEL IS 70% AND THAT IS THE REASON FOR IT'S MAKING SOUND. HE TOLD ME THAT HE COULD NOT DETECT THE ISSUE AND BRING IT ONE MORE TIME. HE TEMPORARILY FIXED THE ISSUE BY FILLING THE OIL. IT AGAIN HAPPENED AFTER A MONTH AND HE AGAIN FILLED IN OIL BUT HE CHARGED ME THIS TIME FOR FILLING THE OIL. HE SAID THAT WE WILL NEED TO DO "OIL CONSUMPTION" TEST AS HE DOESN'T SEE ANY LEAKAGE EITHER. THIS IS REALLY SCARY TO ME WHEN I SEE THAT THERE IS ALREADY CLASS SUIT AGAINST HONDA FOR THE SAME REASON BUT THAT'S APPLICABLE FOR 6 CYLINDERS ENGINE AND NOT FOR 4 CYLINDERS. WHEN I ASKED THE DEALER ABOUT IT, HE SIMPLY DENIED ANY LAWSUIT OR CLASS ACTION OR RECALL FOR ACCORD 2010. IT'S DEFECT IN A CAR BUT NEITHER HONDA ACCEPT IT OR DEALER AGREES TO IT. HOWEVER, I'M SPENDING MY MONEY AND TIME TO FILL IN THE OIL EVERY MONTH AFTER ONLY 1000 MILES. IT'S RIDICULOUS AND FRUSTRATING AS WELL.

Summary

IN NOVEMBER, I PURCHASED 4 NEW CONTINENTAL EXTREMECONTACT DWS FOR MY CAR. IN MARCH, DURING POTHOLE SEASON, I QUICKLY LEARNED THAT THESE NEW TIRES HAVE SOFT SIDEWALLS AND EASILY DEVELOP SIDEWALL BUBBLES. I HAD TO REPLACE TWO OF THE TIRES DURING THIS TIME PERIOD. I'VE NEVER - IN MY 15 YEARS OF DRIVING - HAD TO REPLACE A TIRE DUE TO A SIDEWALL BUBBLE. CURIOUS, I TYPED "CONTINENTAL DWS SIDEWALL BUBBLE" INTO GOOGLE AND FOUND ONLINE FORUMS LOADED WITH FOLKS COMPLAINING OF THE SAME ISSUE. IT'S PRETTY CLEAR BASED ON MY OWN EXPERIENCE, AND ONLINE REPORTS FROM OTHERS, THAT THE CONTINENTAL DWS TIRES HAVE WEAKER THAN USUAL SIDEWALLS, AND DEVELOP BUBBLES AT A MUCH HIGHER RATE THAN OTHER TIRES. AFTER SPENDING SO MUCH ON TIRES WITHIN A SIX MONTH PERIOD, I ASKED CONTINENTAL TO REPLACE JUST ONE OF THE TIRES UNDER WARRANTY (THE TIRE SHOP HAD MERCY AND REPLACED ONE FOR FREE!). CONTINENTAL'S INITIAL WARRANTY INCLUDES ROAD HAZARD PROTECTION FOR THE FIRST 2/10THS OF WEAR, WHICH THIS TIRE EASILY FELL UNDER. AFTER MEETING ALL OF CONTINENTAL'S REQUIREMENTS FOR THE WARRANTY INFORMATION, THEY HAVE STOPPED RESPONDING TO MY CUSTOMER SERVICE INQUIRIES. THEY SAID IT WOULD TAKE THREE WEEKS TO RECEIVE A CHECK. IT'S BEEN THREE MONTHS. PLEASE OPEN AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE SIDEWALL ISSUES OF THESE TIRES. IT IS CLEARLY A KNOWN ISSUE, AND CONTINENTAL REFUSES TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY - EVEN WHEN THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE COVERED UNDER WARRANTY! MY NEXT COMPLAINT WILL BE FILED WITH THE FTC FOR FALSE WARRANTY CLAIMS, SINCE THEY REFUSE TO HONOR THE WARRANTY UNDER THE RULES THEY DEVELOPED; RULES THAT I MET. CONSIDER THIS FILED COMPLAINT MY OFFICIAL NOTICE TO CONTINENTAL. IF I DIE DUE TO A TIRE DEFECT, THIS NOTICE IS PLACED IN A FILE FOR MY LAWYER.

Summary

IN LATE MAY 2014 I HAD THE BRAKES (PADS/ROTORS) REPLACED ON MY 2010 HONDA ACCORD, 2 MONTHS LATER IN AUGUST, I HAD BRAKE PROBLEMS AGAIN, - ROTORS WERE WARPED AGAIN, MANAGED TO GET THEM COVERED UNDER WARRANTY, - 2 MONTHS LATER 10/31 MORE BRAKE ISSUES SO TOOK THEM TO THE DEALER (SO NO AFTER MARKET PARTS), ROTORS WARPED, RECOMMENDED REPLACEMENT OF ROTORS AND PADS, - DONE, 2 MONTHS LATER IN DECEMBER 2014 BACK TO THE DEALER (NOW I'VE PAD FOR THEM 2X IN 6 MONTHS)- REPLACED THE FRONT ROTORS BECAUSE THEY WERE WARPED, NOW, 2 MONTHS LATER IN FEBRUARY - BACK TO THE DEALER AGAIN FOR THE 3RD TIME (1S 2 WERE NOT A DEALER). THIS TIME THEY WERE WARPED, BUT NOT AS BAD - SO THEY MACHINED THE ROTORS BECAUSE THIS TIME I WENT EARLY, WHEN I FIRST STATED NOTICING IT. NO ONE FIGURES OUT WHY... SO, IN TOTAL, MY BRAKES HAVE BEEN WORKED ON 5 TIMES IN 8 MONTHS. THE DEALER SAID THEY HAD A HONDA CORPORATE REP TAKE THE CAR FOR A RIDE, THEY WERE ADVISED THERE WAS NOT A BRAKE PROBLEM. BUT THAT RIDE WAS NOT TILL AFTER THEY MACHINED THE ROTORS, OF COURSE THERE WOULD BE NO PROBLEM - THIS TOTALLY HAS NO LOGIC TO EVEN HAVE THAT DONE! HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO HAVE THEM REPLACED - UNDER WARRANTY OR NOT, AND HOW MUCH TIME AND MONEY DO I HAVE TO WASTE, AND BEFORE SOMEONE TRIES TO FIGURE OUT WHY THE CAR IS GOING THRU BRAKES- MAYBE GETTING IN AN ACCIDENT? IN ADDITION TO THESE ONGOING BRAKE ISSUE, I'VE ALREADY HAD TO HAVE THE 3 PISTONS REBUILT (UNDER A RECALL , BUT I HAD TO FIGHT WITH THE MISFIRE PROBLEM FOR 4 MONTHS BEFORE THEY WOULD DO ANYTHING) AND THE STEERING RACK REPLACED (THANK GOD I HAD 100 MILES LEFT ON MY EXTENDED WARRANTY). *TR

IT WAS A COLD WINTER MORNING, 9 DEGREES TO BE EXACT. I'M IN THE CAR WITH MY 2YR OLD DAUGHTER. I PULL OUT OF THE PARKING SPOT, I MAKE IT 50 FEET AND THE BRAKES BEGIN TO FAIL.

I HIT THE BRAKES A SECOND AND THIRD TIME I GLIMPSE DOWN WONDERING WHY IS THE CAR NOT SLOWING DOWN OR STOPPING I CONTINUE STOMPING ONTO THE BRAKE. I STARTED TO SCREAM IN REALIZATION THAT THIS IS HAPPENING. I COLLIDE INTO THE BACK OF THE CAR THAT WAS AT A STAND STILL. THE WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE. I WAS NOT EVEN A FULL 2 BLOCKS AWAY FROM MY HOME I COULD NOT COMPREHEND HOW MY BRAKES JUST FAILED AFTER I REPEATEDLY PRESSED DOWN ON THEM. PLEASE INVESTIGATE THIS WHO KNOWS HOW MANY PEOPLE EXPERIENCED THIS. I CROSSED AN INTERSECTION WHEN THIS HAPPENED, THANK GOD I HAD THE GREEN LIGHT AND THERE WAS NO ONE CROSSING.

Summary

WE PURCHASED OUR VEHICLE AT HONOLULU, HI, HONDA PFLUGER (NOW PACIFIC HONDA). WITH THE PROPER MAINTENANCE, THE VEHICLE HAS BEEN PERFORMING SATISFACTORILY UNTIL NOW. ONLY MINOR DEFECTS WERE NOTED, SUCH AS BATTERY REPLACEMENT WITHIN THE 3-YEARS OR 36,000 MILES WARRANTY. ON 01/08/15, WE TOOK OUR VEHICLE TO THE CLOSEST HONDA DEALER IN AUSTIN, TX, BECAUSE, FOR THE LAST THREE WEEKS, WHEN THE VEHICLE HAS SAT FOR A WHILE, THE BREAKS WILL NOT WORK WHEN BACKING UP: THE PEDDLE GOES ABOUT HALFWAY DOWN AND STICKS, WILL NOT GO BACK NOR DOWN, AND THE HAND BREAK HAD TO BE PULLED UP TO STOP THE VEHICLE. IN ORDER TO HAVE THE VEHICLE TESTED, WE LEFT OUR VEHICLE AT HOWDY HONDA. THE NEXT DAY, THE MAINTENANCE CONSULTANT INFORMED US THAT THE BREAK MASTER CYLINDER WAS LEAKING INTO THE BOOSTER, AND THAT A COMPLETE REPLACEMENT OF SUCH PART WOULD BE NECESSARY. THE COST OF THE REPAIR WOULD BE $946.00, PLUS TAXES, BECAUSE THE PART WAS NOT COVERED BY THE VEHICLE?S WARRANTY. ON THE HONDA WARRANTY BOOKLET, THE AFOREMENTIONED PART IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE LIST OF NON-COVERED PARTS (PAGE 9); THE MALFUNCTION HAS NOT BEEN CAUSED BY THE IMPROPER USE OF OUR CAR: WE HAVE NEVER USED IT FOR BUSINESS OR UNUSUAL SPORT OR OTHER ACTIVITIES; THE MASTER CYLINDER IS THE ORIGINAL PART INSTALLED BY HONDA; AND NO THIRD-PARTY TECHNICIAN HAS EVER ATTEMPTED TO REPAIR IT. THE DEFECT IN THE MASTER CYLINDER AND BOOSTER IS VERY UNUSUAL; ALMOST ANY 2010 HONDA ACCORD WITH 31,409 MILES SHOWS THIS KIND OF ISSUE. HENCE, WE STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT THE MASTER CYLINDER MALFUNCTION IS A CASE OF A PART THAT IS DEFECTIVE IN MATERIAL OR WORKMANSHIP UNDER NORMAL USE. FURTHERMORE, THE ABOVE DESCRIBED PART MALFUNCTION REPRESENTS AN ENORMOUS SAFETY ISSUE THAT COULD HAVE CAUSED AN ACCIDENT WHICH POTENTIAL PERSONAL, PHYSICAL, AND PSYCHOLOGICAL DAMAGES AGAINST US AND THIRD PARTIES. THE CAR IS INOPERATIVE IN ITS CURRENT CONDITION. *TR

Summary

WHILE ATTEMPTING TO PASS A SEMI-TRUCK ON A TWO LANE HIGHWAY, MY 2010 HONDA ACCORD V6 LOST POWER A FEW MINUTES AFTER ACCELERATION. THE TRUCK DRIVER PROBABLY FELT THAT I WAS BEING RUDE AND SLAMMING ON MY BREAKS, BUT I WAS TRYING TO MOVE TO THE SHOULDER OF THE ROAD BECAUSE MY CAR WAS LOSING POWER. THE CAR WAS TOWED TO AN INDEPENDENT SHOP THAT SPECIALIZES IN HONDA MAKES/MODELS. UPON REVIEW OF THE VEHICLE, THE SHOP FOUND OIL IN ALL THREE CATALYTIC CONVERTERS. MY 2010 HONDA ACCORD IS PART OF THE CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT FOR MISFIRE AND OIL CONSUMPTION (LEAKAGE). I CALLED HONDA AMERICA AND NOTIFIED THE COMPANY ABOUT THE ISSUE WHILE ATTEMPTING TO PASS. I HAVE BEEN TOLD BY THE DEALER'S SERVICE DEPARTMENT AND THE INDEPENDENT SHOP THAT THEY HAVE NEVER SEEN THIS TYPE OF ISSUE. I ASKED IF IT WAS RELATED TO THE ISSUES IDENTIFIED IN THE CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT, BOTH STATED THEY COULDN'T UNDERSTAND "WHY OIL WOULD BE IN THE CONVERTERS". I HAVE USED THE DEALERSHIPS SERVICE DEPARTMENT FOR ALL WORK MINUS THE ALTERNATOR (2 WEEKS AGO). A NEW SHORTBLOCK WAS INSTALLED 20K MILES AGO (PART OF THE MISFIRE/OIL ISSUE). MY MAIN CONCERN IS THE SITUATION OF LOSING POWER IN THE MIDDLE OF ACCELERATION. I WAS EXTREMELY LUCKY TODAY (AND I DID NOT HAVE A SOLID YELLOW LINE WHEN I WAS PASSING - PRETTY MUCH A STRAIGHT AWAY). I TOLD HONDA AMERICA THEY NEEDED TO LOOK INTO THE POSSIBILITY THAT THE ISSUES WITH THE 2010 HONDA ACCORD V6 GOES BEYOND MISFIRE AND OIL CONSUMPTION. I ATTEMPTED TO GOOGLE ACCIDENTS AND ISSUES WITH 2010 HONDA ACCORDS. THIS IS A MAJOR SAFETY CONCERN AND NHTSA SHOULD LOOK INTO THIS ISSUE (POTENTIAL CAUSES FOR ACCIDENTS INVOLVING 2010 HONDA ACCORD V6 MODELS). *TR

ON MY 2010 HONDA ACCORD, OCCURRING ON ALL FOUR DOORS, THE WINDOW SWEEPS ARE MELTING. THESE ARE THE STRIPS THAT KEEP WATER FROM RUNNING DOWN, INTO THE DOOR WELLS FROM THE CLOSED WINDOWS. THE RUBBER STRIPS WERE REPLACED A FEW YEARS AGO UNDER WARRANTY FOR THIS PROBLEM. LAST FALL, THE NEW SWEEPS STARTED TO ALSO MELT DOWN TO A RUBBERY TAR-LIKE CONSISTENCY. I COMPLAINED TO HONDA ABOUT THIS DEFECT TO NO AVAIL. I WAS TOLD THAT I WOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR NEW SWEEPS AND FOR THEM TO BE INSTALLED. THE IMPRESSION THAT I RECEIVED FROM THE SERVICE PERSON WAS THAT IN WARMER CLIMATE AREAS THIS IS A PROBLEM. IT APPEARS THAT THE NEWER HONDA VEHICLES ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR EXTREME WEATHER CONDITIONS AND HONDA IS NOT CONCERNED WITH THE SITUATION.

Summary

WHEN STARTING THE CAR AT A COLD START, YOU HEAR A LOUD GRINDING NOISE SOUNDS FOR 2 OR 5 SECONDS. THERE IS A TSB 09-010 REGARDING A VTC ACTUATOR THAT DRAINS OF OIL AND IS NOT PROPERLY LUBED WHEN STARTING THE ENGINE COLD, CAUSING THE GRINDING NOISE UNTIL OIL REACHES THE PART AGAIN. GRINDING NOISES IN AN ENGINE ARE BAD, AND COULD LEAD TO CATASTROPHIC ENGINE FAILURE SHOULD THE ABRASIVE METALLIC PARTS (DUE TO GRINDING WHEN THERE IS NO OIL IN THE ACTUATOR) BECOMING LODGED. THIS ENGINE FAILURE COULD HAPPEN AT ANY TIME, POSSIBLY IN A HIGHWAY LANE. WHILE MY CAR ENGINE HAS NOT YET SEIZED, THERE ARE ONLINE REPORTS OF THIS HAPPENING. CURRENTLY, HONDA WILL ONLY FIX THIS ISSUE UNDER WARRANTY. THEY ALSO GIVE THE CAR OWNER A REALLY HARD TIME PROVING THE ISSUE, REQUIRING THE CAR BE LEFT AT A DEALERSHIP OVERNIGHT TO REPLICATE THE PROBLEM. A LOANER VEHICLE IS AT YOUR EXPENSE. IF THE CAR IS NOT UNDER WARRANTY, THIS EXPENSIVE REPAIR BILL IS AT YOUR EXPENSE. IF YOUR CAR IS UNDER WARRANTY AND THEY ARE NOT ABLE TO REPLICATE THE NOISE, BOTH THE LOANER CAR AND DIAGNOSTIC FEE ARE AT YOUR EXPENSE. THIS GREATLY REDUCES THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WILLING AND ABLE TO HAVE THIS IMPORTANT SAFETY ISSUE FIXED. RUNNING ENGINE COMPONENTS WITHOUT OIL SHOULD BE A RECALL. IT IS CLEARLY A SAFETY ISSUE THAT CAN CAUSE OTHER PROBLEMS WITH YOUR ENGINE. IF THE ENGINE STALLS UNEXPECTEDLY, IT COULD LEAD TO DEATH. *TR

Summary

I PURCHASED MY 2010 HONDA ACCORD NEW 2/2010. I'VE COMPLETED ALL THE NECESSARY MAINTENANCE REQUIREMENTS & GET MY OIL CHANGED EVERY 3 MONTHS DESPITE WHAT HONDA RECOMMENDS. AFTER HEARING A MILD GRINDING SOUND IN THE PASSENGER REAR TIRE, I THOUGHT IT WAS SOME DIRT/PEBBLE. TO MY SURPRISE, MY MECHANIC TOLD ME MY REAR BRAKES WERE WORN DOWN & NEEDED TO BE REPLACED AT 35,000 MI. MY MECHANIC SAID HE HAD SIMILAR EXPERIENCES W/ OTHER HONDA CUSTOMERS. I REPLACED THE REAR BRAKE PADS W/ AFTERMARKET BRAKE PADS BECAUSE MY MECHANIC BELIEVED THEY WERE SUPERIOR TO THE HONDA BRAKE PADS. THE FRONT BRAKES HAVE 80% LIFE. I'VE NEVER HAD TO REPLACE MY BRAKES ON MY PREVIOUS CARS W/ MILEAGE UNDER 55,000. I STARTED MY RESEARCH ON THE INTERNET AFTERWARDS & FOUND THE 2010 HONDA CLASS-ACTION LAW SUIT REGARDING THE REAR BRAKES ON SPECIFIC YRS OF THE HONDA ACCORD. HONDA WAS NOT REQUIRED TO ISSUE A RECALL ON THE REAR BRAKES. HONDA ACCORD BRAKE PADS SHOULD LAST UP TO 70,000 MILES. UNFORTUNATELY THE REPAIR DEADLINE & ELIGIBILITY INCLUDED BRAKE PADS REPLACED WITH HONDA BRAKE PADS & INSTALLATION OF THOSE BRAKE PADS WITHIN 3 YRS OF WHEN THE CAR WAS FIRST SOLD. I'VE OWNED MY ACCORD FOR 4 YRS & I REPLACED THE BRAKE PADS W/ AFTERMARKET PADS. SINCE I HAVE LITTLE RECOURSE OTHER THAN TO WRITE HONDA OR GO TO THE LOCAL SERVICE DEPT, I OPTED TO SHARE MY EXPERIENCE W/ OTHER CONSUMERS, RATHER THEN REMAIN SILENT & FRUSTRATED. I DOUBT I'LL MAKE ANY PROGRESS W/ CONTACTING HONDA. I TRULY ENJOY MY HONDA ACCORD & ITS PERFORMANCE.

AFTER DOING SOME RESEARCH, HONDA HAD RECALLED PREVIOUS YEARS MODELS FOR THIS SAME ISSUE, BUT THERE IS NOT A RECALL FOR THIS PARTICULAR MODEL YEAR.

IN JUST 2 MONTHS, THE REAR BRAKE STARTED MAKING NOISE AND THEN I CAME ACROSS THE HONDA ACCORD BRAKE RECALL ISSUE. NOW I HAVE GOT THE REPAIR DONE AND SENT THE DETAILS TO HONDA. HONDA IS DENYING THE REIMBURSEMENT SAYING THAT MY CAR DOES NOT FALL IN THE RECALL CATEGORY (THEY HAVE SELECTED SOME VINS WHICH MEETS THOSE CONDITIONS). MY QUESTION IS HOW HONDA CAN DECIDE WHICH VINS HAVE THE PROBLEMS AND WHICH DOES NOT HAVE UNTIL PEOPLE REPORT THEM. ANYWAY, I AM VERY UNHAPPY WITH HONDA ABOUT NOT REIMBURSING THIS REPAIR COST. *TR

Summary

I STARTED NOTICING RIGHT LEG PAIN/NUMBNESS WHILE DRIVING MY ,NEW TO ME, 2010 HONDA ACCORD EX HOME FROM THE DEALERSHIP. I THOUGHT I JUST DIDN'T HAVE MY SEAT ADJUSTED PROPERLY. THE PAIN BECAME MUCH WORSE OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS, AFFECTING BOTH LEGS AND LEFT HIP, BUT I THOUGHT IT WAS STILL JUST ME UNTIL I RESEARCHED IT. THE REAL PAIN BEGAN AFTER A 3 HOUR TRIP. THE PAIN WAS SO SEVERE THE NEXT MORNING THAT I COULD BARELY WALK AND COULDN'T GET OUT OF PAIN. MY DOCTOR ORDERED AN X-RAY AND THEN A BONE SCAN TO SEE IF THERE WAS A FRACTURE. THE TESTS SHOWED A CONDITION CALLED SPONDYLOLISTHESIS WHERE THE L4 VERTEBRA WAS PUSHED FORWARD ON THE L5 VERTEBRA CAUSING AN IMPINGEMENT OF THE NERVES THAT SUPPLY THE LEGS. I CONTACTED THE DEALERSHIP AND THEY TOLD ME THAT MY ONLY RECOURSE WAS TO TRADE THE CAR IN ON ANOTHER VEHICLE(AT A GREAT LOSS TO ME). I HAVEN'T DRIVEN THE CAR SINCE. I'VE BEEN TO A DOCTOR, A SPINAL SPECIALIST AND AM STILL GETTING PHYSICAL THERAPY TO ADDRESS THE PAIN AND HAVEN'T DRIVEN THE CAR IN 2 MONTHS. I KNOW THE SEAT CAN BE TAKEN APART AND PLATES REMOVED TO MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR ME TO DRIVE IT BUT THAT DISABLES THE SAFETY FEATURES OF THE CAR. THESE SEATS WOULD CAUSE PERMANENT DAMAGE TO ME IF I CONTINUED TO DRIVE THE CAR, IF THEY HAVEN'T ALREADY, I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY ISSUES WITH A CAR SEAT BEFORE. THESE SEATS ARE NOT JUST UNCOMFORTABLE THEY ARE DANGEROUS AND NEED TO BE RECALLED. I HAVE BEEN A LOYAL HONDA CUSTOMER AND WOULD ONLY CONSIDER BUYING A HONDA. THE SEATS IN MY OTHER HONDAS WERE WONDERFUL. I'M SO DISAPPOINTED THAT HONDA WON'T FIX THIS ISSUE. *TR

I WOULD ESTIMATE THE GAS PEDAL WAS FULLY FLOORED 2-3 SECONDS. THEN I LIFTED PRESSURE, AS I HAD ENOUGH MOMENTUM TO PASS THE SLOWER VEHICLE, BUT NOTICED THE THROTTLE WAS STILL WIDE OPEN. I WAS GOING TO SHIFT TO NEUTRAL, BUT I QUICKLY STABBED THE PEDAL AND THE THROTTLE UNSTUCK ITSELF. WOW! THAT WAS PRETTY NERVE RACKING! IT HAPPENED ONLY ONCE SO FAR. *TR

Summary

HIGHWAY SPEED VIBRATION AT VARIOUS INTENSITIES, MOSTLY AT SPEEDS OVER 60. CAR SHAKES AND VIBRATES. HONDA DEALERSHIP EVALUATED SITUATION AND NOTED NO PROBLEMS WITH SUSPENSION, REPLACED FRONT AND SIDE MOTOR MOUNTS WITHOUT SOLVING PROBLEM. FACTORY TECH STATED THESE PROBLEMS HAVE BEEN EVALUATED AS "BAD TIRES". CAR HAD PROBLEM WITH PRIOR TIRES AND CURRENT TIRES HAD LESS THAN 2,000 MILES ON THEM. TIRES WERE REBALANCED, ALIGNED AND ROTATED - NO IMPROVEMENT. SAME PROBLEM WITH SECOND CAR (SAME MAKE/MODEL 2008). INTERNET SEARCHING INDICATES THIS IS A PROBLEM WITH 2008 THROUGH AT LEAST 2012 VEHICLES. DEALER TRIED TO TEST THE TIRE ISSUE BY SWAPPING TIRES FROM ANOTHER USED VEHICLE ON THE LOT. THEY TEST DROVE 3 VEHICLES TO FIND ONE BUT ALL THREE HAD THE SAME VIBRATION ISSUE. I THINK THERE IS A DESIGN ISSUE WITH THIS MODEL AND THE PROBLEM IS BEING IGNORED BY HONDA (MUST BE A HUGE ISSUE AND/OR A VERY EXPENSIVE FIX). I HAVE SEEN STATEMENTS THAT THIS IS A "CHARACTERISTIC OF THIS VEHICLE" AND NOTED OTHER SIMILAR EXPLANATIONS. IN MY MIND THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE. IT IS VERY DISTRACTING TO EXPERIENCE SERIOUS VIBRATIONS AT HIGH SPEEDS. IT IS ALSO UNSAFE TO BE DRIVING ON HIGH SPEED ROADS AT LOWER SPEEDS TO AVOID THE ISSUE. *TR

FAULTY REAR PADS WEARING OUT FASTER ON THE INSIDE (PISTONS STICKING) THIS INSPECTION DONE IN HONDA ORLANDO AND HONDA AMERICA INSISTS THAT BRAKE PADS ARE FINE DESPITE THE REAR, WHERE THERE IS LEAST WEIGHT WEARS OUT FASTER THAN FRONT, WHERE THE MOST WEIGHT IS ! I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE COMPLAINING ABOUT IT. MAKE SURE YO GET YOUR BRAKES INSPECTED BEFORE YOU BUY ANY HONDA'S CAUSE THEY ARE NOT HELPFUL AT ALL. IF THIS IS HAPPENING TO YOU, YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN. I MADE MULTIPLE CALLS TO DIFFERENT SERVICE CENTERS AND HONDA AMERICA. THEY JUST SIMPLY DON'T CARE. THEY GOT GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE UNTIL YOU BUY A VEHICLE FORM THEM. ONCE YOU HAVE A PROBLEM (EVEN ON A HONDA CERTIFIED VEHICLE) YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN. MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT BUY HONDA BREAKS IF YOU REPLACE THEM WITH YOUR BUDGET CAUSE YOU WILL KEEP REPLACING THEM SOON AGAIN. CLEARLY THERE IS A PROBLEM AND HONDA AMERICA HAS BEEN IGNORING IT. I TRIED TO EXPLAIN ON THE PHONE AGAIN AFTER TALKING TO HONDA SERVICE. I PASSED THE INFORMATION TO HONDA AMERICA. THEY ARE LIKE; YOUR VEHICLE IS CERTIFIED BUT WE ARE NOT GOING TO REPLACE YOUR BRAKE PADS. NEVER HEARD OF A REAR BRAKE PADS GO OUR BEFORE THE FRONT. *TR

Summary

1. I BELIEVE THE REAR BRAKE SYSTEM ON 2010 ACCORD HAS A DESIGN FLAW THAT CAUSES THE INBOARD REAR BRAKE PADS TO WEAR UNEVENLY AND TO WEAR FASTER THAN THE OUTBOARD PADS. 2. THE REAR BRAKE PADS HAVE HAD TO BE REPLACED TWICE SINCE I PURCHASED THIS VEHICLE NEW, ON OCTOBER 7, 2009: THE FIRST REPLACEMENT WAS ON SEPTEMBER 2, 2011 AT 36,365 MILES AND THE SECOND REPLACEMENT WAS ON MARCH 12, 2013 AT 67,699 MILES. 3. MARCH 12, 2013 PAD REPLACEMENT. THE INBOARD PADS ON BOTH SIDES ARE WORN DOWN FAR MORE THAN THE OUTBOARD PADS. ALSO, THE INBOARD PADS ARE WORN UNEVENLY: ONE OF THE INBOARD PADS HAS 2 MM LEFT ON THE END NEAR THE BREAK PAD WEAR INDICATOR & 3 MM LEFT ON THE OTHER END, THE OTHER INBOARD PAD HAS 1 MM LEFT ON THE END NEAR THE BREAK PAD WEAR INDICATOR & 2 MM OF PAD LEFT ON THE OTHER END. THE OUTBOARD PADS ARE WORN EVENLY AND BOTH HAVE 5-6 MM OF PAD REMAINING. 4. THIS IS JUST NOT RIGHT! BOTH INBOARD AND OUTBOARD SHOULD WEAR EVENLY AND AT THE SAME RATE AND GIVE MORE THAN 31,000 36,000 MILES OF USEFUL SERVICE. 5. I BELIEVE THERE IS A DESIGN FLAW WITH THE CALIPER AND/OR THE CALIPER MECHANISM AND THE EMBEDDED PARKING BRAKE MECHANISM. PERHAPS THE DESIGN OF THE PARKING BRAKE MECHANISM SOMETIMES ALLOWS IT TO NOT RELEASE PROPERLY? MY FEAR IS THAT THIS DESIGN FLAW WILL CAUSE THE REAR BRAKES TO MALFUNCTION WHILE DRIVING. 6. GENUINE HONDA PARTS WERE INSTALLED WITH BOTH REAR BRAKE PAD REPLACEMENTS AND THE FRONT BRAKE PAD REPLACEMENT. THIS VEHICLE HAS A NORMAL MIX OF HIGHWAY AND TOWN DRIVING AND VERY LITTLE STOP-N-GO CITY DRIVING. NEITHER MY WIFE NOR I RIDE THE BRAKES. I BELIEVE NORMAL WEAR, CONSIDERING OUR DRIVING HABITS, FOR THE REAR BRAKES IS 50,000-60,000 MILES.

Summary

THE FRONT SUSPENSION IS MAKING A KNOCKING OR THUMPING SOUND. THE NOISE CAN BE HEARD INSIDE THE CAR BUT NOT OUTSIDE THE CAR. THE NOISE APPEARS ON HOT SUMMER DAYS AFTER THE CAR HAS BEEN DRIVEN FOR ABOUT 30 - 60 MINUTES. THE NOISE IS PRIMARILY HEARD AT LOW SPEEDS AND WHEN THE BRAKE IS APPLIED. SOMETIMES IT CAN BE FELT IN THE STEERING WHEEL OR BRAKE PEDAL. THE CAR WAS TAKEN TO A KANSAS CITY AREA HONDA DEALER BUT THE NOISE WAS NOT DUPLICATED BECAUSE THE CAR SAT FOR A WHILE AND WAS NOT DRIVEN FOR 30 - 60 MINUTES. THERE ARE TWO SIMILAR COMPLAINTS ON SAFERCAR.GOV. A TEXAN RECENTLY REPORTED THE SAME PROBLEM ON THE HONDAACCORDFORUM.COM. HE REPORTS THE HONDA DEALER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE SAID THEY HAD THREE SIMILAR REPORTS AND THE FIX IS TO REPLACE BOTH FRONT KNUCKLES AND BEARINGS. HE SAID THE HONDA TECH LINE IS AWARE OF THIS PROBLEM. HE WONDERS WHY A SERVICE BULLETIN OR RECALL HAS NOT BEEN ISSUED BECAUSE IT COULD LEAD TO LOSS OF STEERING. I BELIEVE THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM AND THAT SOMETHING SHOULD BE FORMALLY DONE TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM. REQUEST NHTSA INITIATE A DEFECTS INVESTIGATION. *TR

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

BOUGHT MY 2010 HONDA ACCORD V6 EXL NEW. AT 45,000 MILES THE CAR EXPERIENCED EXTREME SHAKING OF THE STEERING WHEEL AND SHUDDERING OF THE WHOLE CAR WHEN THE BRAKES WERE APPLIED AT A SPEED OF 70MPH WHILE ON A TRIP. THIS WAS OCCURRING WHETHER THE BRAKES WERE VERY LIGHTLY APPLIED OR MORE FIRMLY APPLIED. A REPAIR SHOP SAID THE REAR ROTORS AND REAR BRAKES WERE NEEDING TO BE REPLACED. THE REPAIR WAS PERFORMED AND IT REDUCED THE SYMPTOMS BY ABOUT 90%. NOW LAST WEEK ON ANOTHER TRIP, THE CAR BEGAN EXPERIENCING THE EXACT SAME SYMPTOMS AS IT HAD PRIOR TO THE 45000 MILE REPAIR. I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT AT THE ORIGINATING HONDA DEALER ON JULY 5TH TO ADDRESS THE PROBLEM. THE OVER THE PHONE SPECULATION BY THE SERVICE ADVISOR IS "IT'S THE FRONT ROTORS". THESE ARE EXPENSIVE REPAIRS BUT MORE IMPORTANT, THE CONDITION IS DANGEROUS WHEN IT HAPPENS. FEW THINGS ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE BRAKES! *TR

Summary

I HAVE HAD A VERY TROUBLING AND DISAPPOINTING EXPERIENCE WITH THE HONDA ACCORD MY WIFE AND I PURCHASED FROM RICK ROUSH HONDA (MEDINA OHIO) IN JULY OF 2010. I HAVE ATTEMPTED TO WORK OUT A SOLUTION THROUGH THE DEALER BUT WAS TOLD BY THE ASSISTANT SERVICE MANGER THAT THE HONDA ZONE MANAGER HAS REFUSED TO OFFER ANY COMPENSATION. WE WERE EXPECTING A NORMAL $25.00 - $30.00 OIL CHANGE. IMAGINE OUR SURPRISE WHEN THE TOTAL COST FOR THE SERVICES CAME TO $515.32. A) MAINTENANCE MINDER CODE ?B? SERVICE $82.27. I HAVE NO ISSUE WITH THIS SERVICE AS IT MAKES GOOD COMMON SENSE. B) REPLACED ENGINE AND CABIN (HEPAA) AIR FILTERS PER MAINTENANCE MINDER CODE ?2? CODE. $66.55. AGAIN NO ISSUE. C) REPLACED REAR BRAKE PADS AND ROTORS $323.02. THIS IS WHERE I HAVE AN ISSUE. ACCORDING TO THE INSPECTION CHECKLIST; REAR PADS FROZEN IN PINCHES? CAUSED THE ROTORS TO OVERHEAT. THERE IS NO REASON WHY THIS SHOULD HAVE OCCURRED TO A VEHICLE WITH 30,000 MILES. REAR BRAKES SHOULD LAST 60,000? 70,000 MILES. IT IS QUITE OBVIOUS THIS PREMATURE BRAKE WEAR IS A BRAKING SYSTEM DEFECTIVE THE SAME AS OR SIMILAR TO THE ISSUE IN THE CLASS-ACTION LAWSUIT SETTLED IN LATE 2010. HAVE OR WILL OTHER 2010 HONDA ACCORD OWNERS EXPERIENCE THE SAME PROBLEM? HAS HONDA ORCHESTRATED A COVER UP TO AVOID THE BAD PRESS AND A COSTLY RECALL AT THE EXPENSE OF THE SAFETY OF ITS CUSTOMERS? I EXPECT A REIMBURSEMENT FROM HONDA FOR THE $323.02 CHARGE INCLUDING THE SALES TAX. THAT WILL BE A TOTAL OF $344.02 ($323.02 + TAX OF $21.00. *JB

IT TURNS OUT THE NEW DESIGN FOR THE HEADREST TO PUSH FORWARD IN A REAREND CRASH HAS INCLUDED A BIG PLASTIC PANEL HELD ON BY 2 METAL BARS LOCATED IN THE SEAT JUST BEHIND THE CUSHION (I REMOVED SEAT BACK TO SEE THIS). THIS BARS ATTACHED TO THE PLASTIC PULLS THE HEADREST FORWARD IF YOUR BACK IS PUSHED AGAINST THE SEAT. THE LUMBAR IS ALSO ATTACHED TO THIS PLASTIC. IF YOU SIT IN THE SEAT AND PULL THE HEADREST FORWARD YOU CAN FEEL THE LUMP GO AWAY FOR THE MOST PART. REMOVING THE PLASTIC IS THE ONLY THING THAT MADE THE SEAT COMFORTABLE. HOWEVER THAT DISABLES THE SAFETY FEATURE SO I CAN'T DO THAT PERMANENTLY. HOWEVER THAT SHOWED ME THE PLASTIC IN THE SEAT BACK IS THE PROBLEM. UPDATED 6/26/12 *CN *TR

Summary

THIS COMPLAINT IS IN REGARD TO THE REAR BRAKE SYSTEM ON MY 2010 HONDA ACCORD. THROUGH MY OWN RESEARCH, HONDA HAS NOT ISSUED A RECALL DUE TO PREMATURE WEAR OF THE REAR BRAKES IN MY MODEL YEAR ACCORD, HOWEVER I LEARNED THAT THEY RECENTLY SETTLED A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT IN RESPONSE TO OWNER COMPLAINTS ABOUT THIS PROBLEM. MY VEHICLE HAD 22,000 MILES ON IT AS OF APRIL 24, 2012, THE DATE OF MY LAST SERVICE. I WAS INFORMED BY A DEALERSHIP TECHNICIAN THAT MY REAR BRAKES NEEDED TO BE REPLACED AND THAT THEY HAD ONLY 2 MM OF BRAKE PAD LEFT ON THEM. I WAS TOLD THAT MY FRONT PADS HAD 7 MM OF BRAKE PAD REMAINING ON THEM. I ASKED THE TECHNICIAN IF THERE WAS A REASON FOR WHY REAR BRAKE PADS WOULD WEAR OUT SO QUICKLY ON A VEHICLE TO WHICH I WAS GIVEN THE ANSWER THAT MOST AUTOMOBILES NOWADAYS HAVE THE REAR BRAKE SYSTEM PROVIDING MORE OF THE STOPPING POWER THAN IN PREVIOUS YEARS. I NEED NOT GO INTO MY OWN KNOWLEDGE, NOR MY PERSONAL OPINION IN THIS MATTER. HOWEVER, THE REASON I AM LODGING THIS COMPLAINT DOES HAVE TO DO WITH MY KNOWLEDGE OF HOW BRAKING SYSTEMS WORK IN AUTOMOBILES. HENCE, I THOUGHT IT PRUDENT TO APPRISE YOUR INSTITUTION TO THIS ISSUE SO AS TO POINT OUT WHAT MAY BE A MATERIAL DEFECT IN MY AUTOMOBILE, AS WELL AS MANY OTHERS AS I WOULD PRESUME. FOR THE RECORD, I BOUGHT MY CAR BRAND NEW, HAVE HAD IT REGULARLY SERVICED ACCORDING TO THE MANUFACTURER'S GUIDELINES, AND THE CAR HAS NOT BEEN SUBJECTED TO ANY OUT OF THE ORDINARY DRIVING CONDITIONS. *JS

Summary

THIS COMPLAINT REGARDS MY 2010 HONDA ACCORD. AT AROUND 21,500 MILES, I NOTICED MY VEHICLE BEGAN MAKING A HUMMING SOUND TOWARD THE FRONT OF THE VEHICLE. THIS SOUND WOULD INCREASE AS THE CAR ACCELERATED AND DECREASE AS THE CAR DECELERATED. WHEN I BROUGHT MY ACCORD IN FOR ROUTINE MAINTENANCE ON 04/24/12, I INFORMED THE DESK AGENT AT THE HONDA DEALERSHIP OF THE NOISE. IT WAS DETERMINED THAT THE NOISE STEMMED FROM A WHEEL BEARING THAT HAD GONE BAD ON THE RIGHT FRONT PASSENGER SIDE OF MY VEHICLE. ALTHOUGH THIS MALFUNCTION WAS STILL COVERED UNDER THE FACTORY WARRANTY THAT CAME WITH THE VEHICLE, I FELT THE NEED TO REPORT THIS PROBLEM AS THIS WAS A PREMATURE MALFUNCTION OF A VERY CRUCIAL PART TO MY VEHICLE. IT SEEMS AS IF THE DAMAGE OCCURRED WHILE MY VEHICLE WAS SHUT OFF, AND I CUT THE WHEEL TO GET A BETTER VANTAGE POINT UNDER MY WHEEL WELL. I MAKE THIS ASSUMPTION SINCE I HADN'T HEARD THE NOISE BEFORE DOING THIS, AND THEN THE FIRST TIME I DROVE MY CAR AFTER DOING THIS, WHICH HAPPENED TO BE AN HOUR LATER, THE NOISE BECAME APPARENT. MANY OTHER PERSONS THAT OWN A SIMILAR VEHICLE AS MINE MAY NOT THINK MUCH OF THIS NOISE IF THEIR VEHICLE(S) HAVE SIMILAR MILEAGE SUCH AS MINE SINCE WHEEL BEARINGS TYPICALLY LAST MUCH LONGER THAN THIS. THIS COULD BE A CATASTROPHIC MISTAKE IF THIS ASSUMPTION IS MADE, SO I FIGURED IT PRUDENT TO ADVISE ON MY EXPERIENCE IN CASE THIS WERE TO HAPPEN TO ANOTHER VEHICLE OWNER OR LESSEE IN A SIMILAR SITUATION TO MINE. FOR THE RECORD, MY CAR HAS BEEN REGULARLY MAINTAINED MY LOCAL HONDA DEALERSHIP AND HAS NOT BEEN DRIVEN IN ADVERSE CONDITIONS. *JS

Summary

I HAD A 2008 ACCORD, WHICH SEATING WAS VERY COMFORTABLE. I TRADE FOR A 2010 WITH ALL THE SAME EQUIPMENT AND LEATHER SEATS (SAME AS 2008), BUT HAVE MAJOR ISSUES WITH THE LACK OF COMFORT, LACK OF ADJUSTABLE TO SUPPORT THE BACK AND LEGS. I, LIKE OTHERS I'VE READ, HAVE BACKACHES, NECK PAIN AND LEG PROBLEMS WHEN I DRIVE THIS CAR. IT'S RIDICULOUS. WHO CHANGED THE DESIGN OF COMFORTABLE SEATS TO THIS JUNK?? WHY WOULD THE DESIGN CHANGE AT ALL?? SOMETIMES IMPROVEMENTS AREN'T REALLY IMPROVEMENTS, AND THIS IS A PRIME EXAMPLE. SHAMED ON HONDA. I'VE OWNED FOUR HONDAS. I SURE WON'T BUY ANOTHER ONE WITH UNCOMFORTABLE SEATING. *TR

Summary

I RENTED THIS 2010 HONDA ACCORD FROM ENTERPRISE (DUNDALK, MD OFFICE) WHEN MY CAR WAS SENT TO REPAIR. I NOTICED THAT THIS CAR WAS MAKING A LOT OF NOISES WHILE DRIVING. THEN ON FEB 7, 2012 AROUND 6:40AM, I JUST FINISHED WORK AND HEADED HOME. I HAD ALL THE CAR WINDOWS CLOSED. AS SOON AS I ENTERED HIGHWAY I-95 NORTH (EXIT #43 IN MARYLAND), I NOTICED THERE WAS STRANGE NOISES. IT SOUNDED LIKE SOME STONES JUMPING INSIDE THE DOOR. THE STRANGE NOISES DIDN'T GO AWAY AND I HEARD A BIG EXPLOSION SOUND SEVERAL MINUTES LATER. IT WAS VERY SCARY. I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO LOSE CONTROL OF THE CAR. THERE WERE CARS ALL AROUND MY CAR. I WAS AFRAID OF HITTING OTHER CARS. MY FIRST REACTION WAS FLAT TIRE OR GUNFIRE. HOWEVER, I NOTICED THE DRIVER SIDE GLASS WAS GONE SECONDS LATER AND THE CAR WAS STILL DRIVABLE. THE BROKEN GLASSES WAS INSIDE MY CAR AND INSIDE THE DOOR. THIS IS VERY SCARY EXPERIENCE AS I HAVE NO SUCH EXPERIENCE BEFORE AND I HAVE NOT HEARD SIMILAR CASES AROUND ME. I BELIEVE THE GLASS EXPLOSION WAS DUE TO RESONANCE. *TR

HE TOLD ME ABOUT THE COMPLAINT FILED FOR THE 2008-2009 AND SOME 2010 MODELS. I FILED THE COMPLAINT AND FOUND OUT THAT MY VIN IS NOT ELIGIBLE FOR A REIMBURSEMENT. I BELIEVE THEY SHOULD CONSIDER ALL THE 2010 MODELS. I DONT KNOW WHAT IS THE CRITERIA HONDA HAS TO INDENTIFY FAULTY BRAKES. CLEARLY, HONDA HAS FLAW IN KEEPING TRACK OF THIER INVENTORY OR THEY ARE NOT WILLING TO ACKNOLOEGE CUSOTER COMPLAINS AND ACT ON THE INFORMAITON.

I LEASED A NEW 2010 ACCORD EX 4-CYL. ON THE DRIVE HOME FROM THE DEALER I NOTICED THE SEAT WAS NOT TO MY LIKING AND TRIED TO ADJUST IT TO NO AVAIL. THE DISCOMFORT CAUSED BY THE LUMBAR SUPPORT IN THE ACTIVE RESTRAINT SYSTEM IN THE FRONT DRIVER'S SEAT IS INTOLERABLE. AS OTHERS HAVE NOTED, IT IS VERY NOTICEABLE ON LONG DRIVES OVER AN HOUR AND MAY CAUSE A SAFETY ISSUE BY THE DISTRACTION IT CREATES DUE TO CONSTANTLY SHIFTING AROUND TRYING TO FIND A COMFORTABLE POSITION. I HAVE CONTACTED HONDA OF AMERICA AND HAVE GONE BACK TO THE DEALERSHIP SEVERAL TIMES WITH NO SOLUTION. I'M DISMAYED BY HONDA'S LACK OF RESPONSE TO THIS PROBLEM AND SPECIFICALLY TO MY COMPLAINT WITH A 'SORRY'. I'M NOW EXPERIENCING BACK PAIN WHICH I'VE NEVER HAD UNTIL DRIVING THIS CAR AROUND FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS. *KB

I CAME TO KNOW THAT THERE IS A CLASS ACTION SUIT WITH HONDA ON THIS SUBJECT, BUT IT SEEMS THEY'RE COVERING ONLY A CERTAIN FEW VIN NUMBER, THIS IS TOTAL ABSURDITY, IF THE BRAKING SYSTEM IS FAILING FOR ANY / ALL MODELS OF HONDA, IT SHOULD BE CONSIDERED. *TR

I WENT TO A LOCAL SEARS AUTOMOTIVE SERVICE CENTER AFTER I'D HEARD SQUEAKING COMING FROM THE REAR OF MY VEHICLE. A CO-WORKER TOLD ME IT SOUNDED LIKE A PROBLEM WITH MY BRAKES AND THAT I SHOULD HAVE THEM CHECKED. THE MECHANIC SHOWED ME THE BRAKE PADS THAT CAME FROM THE REAR BRAKES OF MY CAR--THERE WAS NO PADDING LEFT! ANOTHER MECHANIC ADVISED ME THAT HE'D SEEN A LOT OF HONDAS COME IN A SIMILAR CONDITION--FRONT BRAKE PADS SHOWING SOME WEAR AND REAR BRAKE PADS WITH ALMOST NO PADDING REMAINING. HE ADVISED ME TO CALL HONDA AND ASK ABOUT RECALLS. I CALLED THE LOCAL HONDA DEALERSHIP AND WAS ADVISED TO VISIT THIS WEBSITE: WWW.ACCORDSETTLEMENT.COM. I CALLED FOR ASSISTANCE BECAUSE IT DIDN'T APPEAR THAT MY VIN WAS INCLUDED. I CONTACTED [XXX] LLP, WHO SAID THEY COULDN'T ASSIST ME BECAUSE MY CAR WAS NOT AFFECTED BY THE CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT. I THINK THAT THIS BRAKING ISSUE SHOULD BE FURTHER INVESTIGATED--IT APPEARS THAT IT AFFECTS MORE THAN JUST THE FIRST NINE 2010 MODELS PRODUCED (AS [XXX]CLAIMS), AS I'M EXPERIENCING SIMILAR PROBLEMS TO OTHER ACCORD OWNERS.

THE DAY AFTER MY AC STOPPED WORKING I DECIDED TO TAKE IT TO THE NEAREST DEALER WHICH WAS AUTOWEST HONDA OF FREMONT. EVEN THOUGH SUMMER WAS ALMOST OVER IT WAS STILL HOT ENOUGH NOT TO LIVE WITH OUT AC SO I DECIDED TO HAVE MY AC DIAGNOSED. APPARENTLY THE DEALER SAID THAT A SMALL PEBBLE HIT MY CONDENSER WHICH CAUSED MY AC TO STOP WORKING. MY INSURANCE WILL COVER IT BUT MY DEDUCTIBLE IS TOO HIGH, MY HONDA WARRANTY DOES NOT WANT TO COVER IT BECAUSE IT WAS NOT A DEFECT AND OF COURSE THE COST TO FIX THE AC CONDENSER PLUS LABOR WOULD COST ABOUT $900!! I REALLY FIND THIS TYPE OF INCIDENT UN FAIR! IF IT THAT SIMPLE FOR A CONDENSER TO BE DAMAGED BY A PEBBLE WHY WOULD HONDA PUT OUT A VEHICLE LIKE THAT OUT ON THE STREETS! I KNOW THE CONDENSER HAS TO BE EXPOSED BUT I BELIEVE THE MODEL OF THIS VEHICLE EXPOSES THE CONDENSER TOO MUCH AND IF ITS THAT SIMPLE FOR THE CONDENSER TO GET DAMAGED THEN HONDA HAS TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. I BOUGHT THE CAR BRAND NEW AND TO HAVE SUCH A NECESSARY REPAIR RUNNING FOR $900 AT 30,000 MILES IS RIDICULOUS. EITHER PUT BETTER CONDENSER ON HONDA VEHICLES OR DON'T PUT VEHICLES OUT THERE WHERE ONE HAS TO WORRY ABOUT HITTING PEBBLES BECAUSE THEY MIGHT COST YOU ANOTHER $900! REALLY UNHAPPY WITH HONDA RIGHT NOW, ESPECIALLY THE FACT THAT I LOVE HONDA'S AND MOST OF MY FAMILY MEMBERS HAVE ONE. HOPEFULLY HONDA CAN FIX THIS, BRAND NEW CAR AND ALREADY UNHAPPY AT 30,000! AND OF COURSE I HAD TO PAY THE$150 FOR DIAGNOSING THE THING BECAUSE IT WAS NOT COVERED BY MY HONDA PROTECTION PLAN! HOW ARE WE SUPPOSE TO DRIVE A HONDA ACCORD COUPE WITH PIECE OF MIND IF I HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT A PEBBLE HITTING MY CONDENSER AND DAMAGING IT, WHEN STREETS ARE FULL OF THEM! I NEED A CAR THAT WOULD GIVE ME PIECE OF MIND NOT ONE THAT WOULD PUT ME AT RISK FINANCIALLY EVERY TIME I'M DRIVING THE [XXX] THING!

Summary

A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO THE BRAKES STARTED SQUEALING. THIS HAS HAPPENED SEVERAL TIMES IN THE PAST TWO WEEKS. SEVERAL TIMES THE BRAKES WERE SLOW TO RESPOND AND SQUEALED LOUDLY. I HAVE A 2010 HONDA ACCORD V-6. IN JUNE I HAD TO HAVE MY ROTORS TURNED BECAUSE THE CAR WOULD SHIMMY WHEN I USED THE BRAKES. HONDA SERVICE SAID THAT THE WARRANTY DIDN'T COVER THIS. I BOUGHT THE CAR NEW AND ONLY HAVE ~25K MILES ON IT. THE MILEAGE IS 90% HIGHWAY AND INTERSTATE MILES AND THERE SHOULD BE NO REASON THAT THE BRAKE PADS SHOULD BE REPLACED OTHER THAN POOR MATERIAL. I HAVE READ ABOUT THE CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT, BUT NOT SURE WHAT TO DO NEXT.. *TR

Summary

TOOK MY 2010 HONDA ACCORD INTO PRIORITY HONDA IN CHESAPEAKE, VA TO HAVE THE ROUTINE OIL CHANGE AND TIRE ROTATION DONE. I HAVE BEEN TAKING MY CAR THERE SINCE IT WAS BRAND NEW TO HAVE ALL THE SCHEDULED MAINTENANCES DONE. AT 30,000 MILES, I AM BEING TOLD I NEED REAR BRAKES AND THEY ARE ALMOST METAL-TO-METAL AND THAT HONDA WAS AWARE OF THE ISSUE AND WOULD REIMBURSE ME UP TO 150.00 OF THE REPAIR COST WHICH WAS CLOSE TO 200.00. I CALLED HONDA AUTOMOBILE CUSTOMER SERVICE TO ONLY BE TOLD BY THEM THAT MY VIN# IS NOT COVERED AND IT WAS ONLY VERY FEW 2010 ACCORDS THAT WERE AFFECTED. WHEN I CALLED THE DEALERSHIP BACK, THEY SIMPLY JUST APOLOGIZED THAT THEY HAD GIVEN ME WRONG INFORMATION, ADVISED ME THAT IT WAS NORMAL FOR REAR BRAKES TO WEAR OUT IN 30,000 MILES (WHICH I KNOW IS NOT CORRECT), AND SAID IT WAS WEAR AND TEAR AND I HAD TO PAY FOR THE COST OF REPAIRS. REALLY....THIS IS THE SECOND HONDA I HAVE PURCHASED, BUT I AM MIGHTY AFRAID IT WILL BE MY LAST AND I AM SERIOUSLY CONSIDERING TRADING IT IN FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN A HONDA ASAP. WHAT IS ALSO VERY CONCERNING IS I SEE THAT I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE THAT HAS HAD THE SAME EXACT PROBLEM. *TR

JOHN IN THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT AT MIDDLETOWN HONDA TELLS ME THE FRONT BRAKES ARE PERFECT AND THIS IS NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR ON THE REAR BRAKES- REALLY. I DRIVE HIGHWAY MILES TO AND FROM WORK, NO EXCESSIVE BRAKING SO NOT IT IS NOT NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR ON REAR BRAKES. NEVER HAD THIS KIND OF PROBLEM WITH ANY OF MY OTHER NEW CARS - NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM. THE ONLY THING I WAS ABLE TO GET FROM JOHN WAS THE 800 NUMBER TO CALL BECAUSE HE "THOUGHT" HE HAD HEARD SOMETHING ABOUT A CLASS ACTION SUIT. THOUGHT, REALLY HMMM. IN ALL MY YEARS OF DRIVING, OVER 40 YEARS, NEVER HAVE I HAD THIS KIND OF ISSUE ANY OF MY CARS NOR HAD THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT SHOW THE NONCHALANT ATTITUDE TOWARDS A CUSTOMER.

I OWN A 2010 HONDA ACCORD V6. I HAVE HAD THIS CAR FOR ONE YEAR. THE MILEAGE IS JUST OVER 18,000 MILES. WHEN I TOOK MY CAR IN FOR INSPECTION ON YESTERDAY AT THE HONDA DEALERSHIP, THEY INFORMED ME THAT MY REAR BRAKES WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED WITHIN THE NEXT THREE MONTHS. I HAVE OWNED HONDAS EVERY SINCE 1989 AND PREMATURE BRAKE WEAR HAS NEVER OCCURRED WITH ANY OF THE HONDA THAT I HAVE OWNED. PLEASE TELL ME WHAT I CAN DO TO GET SOME TYPE OF RESOLUTION FOR THIS PROBLEM. I FEEL THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE BECAUSE YOUR BRAKES ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN A CAR. ALSO, THIS CAR HAS A FAULTY FRONT BUMPER. IT IS ATTACHED TO THE CAR BY SNAPS. THESE SNAPS BREAK AND THE BUMPER STARTS SEPARATING FROM THE CAR. I HAVE TAKEN IT BACK TO THE HONDA DEALERSHIP AND THEY SENT IT TO THEIR BODY SHOP BUT THE BUMPER IS STILL TRY TO SEPARATE FROM THE CAR. IF THE BUMPER COMES OFF IT COULD CAUSE AN ACCIDENT. *TR

WE WERE DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY WHEN WE STARTED HEARING A CRACKING NOISE COMING FROM THE SUNROOF. MY BOYFRIEND LOOKED UP TO SEE THE SUNROOF CRACKING. HE QUICKLY CLOSED THE SUNROOF COVER JUST BEFORE THE GLASS SHATTERED. NO CONSTRUCTION VEHICLES OR HEAVY EQUIPMENT WERE IN THE VICINITY. NO ROCK OR OTHER PROJECTILE HIT THE CAR. *TT I CONTACTED MY LOCAL DEALER AND LEFT A MESSAGE FOR THE SERVICE MANAGER. I CONTACTED HONDA CUSTOMER SERVICE THE NEXT DAY AND GOT A CASE NUMBER. I DROPPED MY CAR OFF AT THE DEALER THE FOLLOWING MORNING WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT THE DEALER'S GENERAL MANAGER WOULD TAKE A LOOK AT IT. BEFORE LUNCH, I GOT A CALL FROM THE DEALER THAT HONDA DENIED MY CLAIM FOR A WARRANTY REPAIR, STATING IT WAS ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE. I CONTACTED HONDA AND THE REGIONAL CARE MANAGER STATED THAT IT COULD HAVE BEEN CAUSED BY A SMALL ROCK. I WAS TOLD TO GO THROUGH INSURANCE. I CALLED MY INSURANCE. THEY AGREED IT WAS UNLIKELY THAT IT WAS ACCIDENTAL DAMAGE AND WOULD WANT TO LOOK AT THE VEHICLE TO UNDERSTAND IF THEY SHOULD TRY TO GET MONEY BACK FROM HONDA. I DROPPED MY CAR OFF AT THE GLASS COMPANY. THE COMPANY HAD TO ORDER THE GLASS FROM HONDA AS IT'S NOT REGULAR WINDOW GLASS CARRIED BY THEIR VENDORS. WE SPOKE TO A FEW SERVICE WRITERS AND A SERVICE MANAGER - NONE HAD EVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THAT. THE GLASS COMPANY ALSO SAID THAT THEY NEVER SAW ANYTHING LIKE IT. SUNROOF GLASS IS THICK AND TEMPERED AND SHOULD NOT SHATTER LIKE IT DID. *TT

Summary

DRIVER'S SEAT LUMBAR DESIGN CAUSING DRIVING SAFETY ISSUES NOTE: IT SEEMS THAT THIS PROBLEM IS MORE PROMINENT FOR MALE DRIVERS VERSUS FEMALE DRIVERS. THIS PROBLEM HAS BECOME SO BAD THAT I REFUSE TO DRIVE IT PAST 1 HOUR ON THE ROAD; IT JUST DOESN'T HAPPEN. WHY IS THIS SO? BECAUSE THE DRIVER'S LUMBAR IS IMPROPERLY DESIGNED. ...MY STATEMENT COMES FROM EXPERIENCE OF PERSONALLY HAVING SEVERAL VEHICLES OVER THE PAST 30 YEARS IN ADDITION TO DRIVING RENTAL VEHICLES ON A VERY FREQUENT BASIS (I TYPICALLY PLACE MORE MILES ON RENTAL VEHICLES THAN MY PERSONAL VEHICLES) ' AND I REALLY DO ENJOY DRIVING VEHICLES ON LONG TRIPS WHEN DRIVING THE VEHICLE I LITERALLY GET A 'PAIN IN THE BACK'. I HAVE MADE MULTIPLE SEAT ADJUSTMENTS WITH NO SUCCESS. THE LUMBAR AREA BECOMES VERY PAINFUL WHERE IT FORCES ME TO GET OFF THE ROAD TO REST THE BACK. IF I DO NOT DO THIS I BECOME IRRITABLE (DOESN'T GO OVER WELL WITH MY SPOUSE OR THE FAMILY) AND STARTS IMPACTING MY DRIVING ABILITY. I HAVE TAKEN MEASURES TO WEAR A FLEXIBLE BACK BRACE THAT PROVIDE ADDITIONAL COMFORT, BUT THAT ONLY LASTED ANOTHER HOUR PRIOR TO THE 'PAIN IN THE BACK' RETURNING. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE (& I HAVE NEVER DONE THIS WITH ANY OTHER VEHICLE I HAVE OWNED OR RENTED) I HAVE COMMUNICATED TO MY WIFE (IT IS HER VEHICLE) THAT I WILL NO LONGER DRIVE THE ACCORD EX-L EXCEPT ON SHORT TRIPS (LESS THAN 60 MINUTES). THE PHYSICAL PAIN (LEGS, BACK, HIP, ETC.) THE SEAT CAUSES IS UNACCEPTABLE AND NEEDS RESOLVED PRIOR TO MY GIVING IT ANOTHER CHANCE. I HAVE DONE SIGNIFICANT RESEARCH SINCE THE PURCHASE LOOKING FOR FIXES, ETC. INCLUDING INQUIRING WITH DEALERSHIP AND SPEAKING WITH HONDA CUSTOMER SERVICE WITH NO ASSISTANCE. THE LAST RESULT FROM THE DEALERSHIP WAS THAT THE ENGINEER DID ALSO EXPERIENCE THE PROBLEM, BUT COULD NOT PROCEED FURTHER AS HONDA DID NOT HAVE A 'TECH NOTE' ON THE PROBLEM. I SPOKE WITH HONDA CUSTOMER SERVICE (THE 800 #) AGAIN ON FRIDAY ABOUT THIS WITH LITTLE SUCCESS. ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED AS THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. *TR

IN FRONT OF THE 2010 ACCORD THERE ARE TWO BIG HOLES CUT OUT FOR A SPORTY LOOK. EVERYDAY DRIVING TO AND FROM WORK ON THE HIGHWAY SOMETHING FLEW UP FROM OFF THE ROAD AND WENT INTO ONE OF THE OPEN AREAS AND SLICED MY AIR CONDENSER AND ALL OF MY FREON LEAKED OUT AND IT WOULDN'T BE PATCHED ENTIRE PIECE HAD TO BE REPLACED SO MY COMPLAINT IS WHY WOULD AN AREA LIKE THAT BE LEFT WIDE OPEN TO A MAIN PART OF THE A/C AND NOT A PIECE OF MESH THERE TO PROTECT THAT. IT WAS NOT COVERED ON MY 100,000 MILE WARRANTY SO THEREFORE THE REPAIR HAD TO COME OUT OF MY POCKET ON A 6 MONTH OLD CAR.

Summary

IN RECENT, COMPANIES HAVE CHANGED HOW THEY MAKE THE INSULATION FOR CABLES ATTACHED TO A CAR'S ENGINE. THE SOY PRODUCTS NOW USED TO CREATE THE WIRE INSULATION CONCERNS ME A GREAT DEAL. THIS WEEKEND MY WIFE WAS DRIVING OUR CAR, A 2010 HONDA ACCORD, AND WHILE ON THE ROAD THE CAR STARTED TO SHAKE AND STUTTER VIOLENTLY, AND WOULD NOT ACCELERATE. THIS COULD HAVE ULTIMATELY CAUSED AN ACCIDENT AND HARMED HER AND OTHER PEOPLE. AFTER HAVING OUR CAR TOWED TO THE DEALERSHIP, THERE WAS EVIDENCE THAT A RODENT OF SOME TYPE HAD CHEWED ON THE CABLES. NOT ONLY DID THIS MAKE THE CAR UNSTABLE TO DRIVE ON THE ROAD, BUT THERE WAS A THREAT OF ELECTRICAL FIRE BECAUSE THE WIRE'S INSULATION WAS CHEWED AWAY BY A SMALL ANIMAL THAT WAS ATTRACTED TO THE SOY-BASED FOOD SOURCE IN THE WIRES. ADDING THE SOY TO THE WIRES CAN CAUSE PROBLEMS INCLUDING UNRELIABILITY, FIRES, AND POSSIBLY EVEN DEATH. I DON'T TAKE THIS LIGHTLY. AUTOMOBILE MAKERS ARE USING THE SOY MATERIAL BECAUSE IT IS LESS EXPENSIVE FOR THEM. OVERALL, IT COSTS CONSUMERS/INSURANCE COMPANIES MUCH MORE WHEN REPAIRS ARE NEEDED BECAUSE OF THIS PROBLEM. NOT ONLY IS THIS DISHONEST OF AUTO MAKERS, BUT THESE TYPES OF SHORTCUTS ARE ILLEGAL AS WELL. PLEASE REQUIRE MANUFACTURERS TO MAKE WIRING INSULATION OUT OF NON-SOY-BASED PRODUCTS TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF MY FAMILY ALONG WITH YOURS. THANKS. *TR

DEALER REPLACED POWER STEERING PUMP ON MY THIRD TRIP TO HONDA SERVICE.NOISE CONTINUES EVEN LOUDER WITH NEW PUMP. A RETURN TRIP TO HONDA DEALER I WAS TOLD IT IS A NOISE CHARACTERISTIC OF THIS MODEL. THE NERVE RACKING WHINE IS DEADENED ONLY WITH THE RADIO VOL. TURNED UP. TWO OTHER PROBLEMS CREATE VERY STRESSFUL DRIVING CONDITIONS. THE HEAD REST EXTEND TOO MUCH FORWARD CREATING SEVERE NECK STRAIN AND THE STIFF FEEL IN THE SEATS REQUIRE CONSTANT SHIFTING OF POSITION. I WILL NEVER PURCHASE NOR RECOMMEND A HONDA TO ANYONE.

I PURCHASED A NEW 2010 HONDA ACCORD LX-P IN LATE NOVEMBER OF 2009. ON SEPTEMBER 10, 2010, I SCHEDULED AN APPOINTMENT TO BRING THE VEHICLE IN BECAUSE THERE WAS A SEVERE WHINING NOISE AT IDLE THAT WAS MOST PROMINENT UNDER SPEEDS OF 20 MPH. THE WHINING NOISE STARTED ABOUT FOUR WEEKS EARLIER AND SEEMED TO DISSIPATE ONCE THE TRANSMISSION SHIFTED INTO SECOND GEAR. THE NOISE SOUNDS EXACTLY LIKE A POWER STEERING PUMP LOW ON FLUID OR JUST BEFORE THE PUMP STARTS TO GO OUT. I TOOK THE VEHICLE DIRECTLY TO THE DEALERSHIP SINCE IT WAS UNDER WARRANTY AND LEFT IT THERE FOR SEVERAL HOURS. UPON RETURNING TO THE GARAGE, THE TECHNICIAN INFORMED ME THE NOISE IS A COMMON OCCURRENCE WITH ALL ACCORDS WITH THE 4-CYLINDER ENGINE AND AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. HE STATED HE EVEN REMOVED THE POWER STEERING BELT TO RULE-OUT THE POWER STEERING PUMP. I THEN ASKED HIM IF THIS WAS THE CASE, WHERE EXACTLY WAS THE WHINING COMING FROM? HE INFORMED ME THAT HE JUST DIDN'T KNOW. PLEASE HELP! TO OVERCOME THE SEVERE WHINING, I HAVE TO TURN THE RADIO UP OR TURN ON THE AC/HEATER FAN TO DROWN OUT THE NOISE.

Summary

UNABLE TO GET THE LOCK MECHANISM TO ENGAGE TO START THE CAR. MY MOTHER HAS BEEN LEFT STRANDED FIVE TIMES DUE TO LOCK MECHANISM SEIZING AND HER BEING UNABLE TO START CAR. SHE HAS CALLED THE HONDA SERVICE DEPT. TWICE AND THEY RECOMMENDED PULLING HARD ON STEERING WHEEL (TOWARD CHEST OF DRIVER). THEY OBVIOUSLY KNEW TO RECOMMEND THIS REMEDY. BUT MY MOTHER IS 90 POUNDS AND FRAIL. IT TOOK STRONG MALES (STRANGERS IN A PARKING LOT,MOST RECENTLY WHILE IT WAS SNOWING) TO PULL THE STEERING WHEEL OUT TO AFFECT THE REMEDY SO THE CAR WOULD START. HONDA HAS NOT OFFERED TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM AND TRIES TO BLAME HER FOR "LEANING ON THE STEERING WHEEL" AS SHE EXITS THE VEHICLE. 90 POUNDS??? MY EXTENDED FAMILY HAS OWNED 20+ HONDA'S IN THE PAST - INCLUDING ME OWNING A 2009 EX-L. WE ARE ALL NOW DISAPPOINTED. NOT TO MENTION THAT MY MOTHER WAS MADE TO WAIT IN HONDA SERVICE FOR HER INITIAL 3000 MILE OIL CHANGE FOR 2 HOURS. THEY ALSO CHARGE HER FOR ROTATING THE TIRES AT 3000 MILES...TALKING ABOUT TAKING ADVANTAGE OF AN ELDERLY WIDOW..... SHE WENT LATER TO HAVE THE AIR CHECKED IN HER TIRES BECAUSE OF THE LOW PRESSURE WARNING (REMEMBER, SHE IS RECENTLY WIDOWED WITH NO KNOWLEDGE OF CARS AND HER CHILDREN ARE HOURS AWAY) AND THEY MAD HER WAIT 1 HOUR FOR THIS. SHAME ON HONDA. HER CAR IS UP FOR SALE AND SO IS MINE. THE EXTENDED FAMILY WILL NO LONGER BUY HONDA'S. HER LOCAL DEALER WHERE SHE BOUGHT THE CAR IS ASHEBORO HONDA, ASHEBORO, NORTH CAROLINA. THEY HAVE THUS FAR BEEN INDIFFERENT TO HER SITUATION. *TR

Summary

FRONT DRIVER AND PASSENGER SEATS ARE EXTREMELY HARD AND UNCOMFORTABLE. THERE'S A HARD PIECE OF PLASTIC THAT RUNS THE WIDTH OF THE SEAT THAT DIGS INTO THIGHS/BUTTOCKS AND CAUSES CHRONIC HIP/BACK PAIN AND SOMETIMES NUMBNESS. THE SEATS ARE ALSO TOO LONG WHICH CAUSES THE FRONT OF THE SEAT TO DIG INTO THE BACK OF KNEES. THE HEADREST PUSHES HEAD/NECK FORWARD IN AN AWKWARD POSITION WHICH ALSO CAUSES NECK AND SHOULDER PAIN. THERE ARE NO ADJUSTMENTS THAT CAN BE MADE TO REMEDY THESE PAINS AND DISCOMFORT. JUST DRIVING OR RIDING FOR SHORT DISTANCES CAUSE THIS DISCOMFORT/PAIN. NOW, AFTER 6 MONTHS OF DRIVING THE CAR, THE BACK/HIP PAIN FOR ME AND MY 16 YR OLD SON IS DEEMED CHRONIC AND THERE IS REALLY NO RELIEF OTHER THAN NOT DRIVE OR RIDE IN THE CAR AND WE DON'T HAVE ANOTHER CAR. HONDA SHOULD COME UP WITH A SOLUTION AND AT LEAST OFFER AN AFFORDABLE FIX. NUMBNESS AND PAIN OF THIS SORT FOR DRIVERS IS DANGEROUS.

Summary

MY 2010 HONDA ACCORD COUPE WAS MAKING A METALLIC "SQUEALING" SOUND WHEN I APPLIED THE BRAKES (AND, EVENTUALLY, AFTER APPLYING THE BRAKES). I TOOK MY CAR TO THE DEALER (UNION PARK HONDA IN WILMINGTON DE) TO HAVE THE BRAKES LOOKED AT AND WAS TOLD THAT THEY NEEDED TO BE REPLACED "WITH AN UPDATED FACTORY PART". AFTERWARD I SAW THE NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS ABOUT 2008-2009 HONDA ACCORD REAR BRAKE WEAR AFTER AS LITTLE AS 15,000 MILES. MY 2010 ACCORD (WHICH WAS NOT ONE OF THE 2010'S INCLUDED IN THE CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT) HAD ALMOST IDENTICAL ISSUES. ALSO OF NOTE IS THAT THE REAR BRAKES WERE AT 1MM OF MATERIAL LEFT (OUT OF 10MM), WHILE THE FRONT BRAKES WERE AT 7MM (OUT OF 10MM), SO THIS WOULD NOT INDICATE WEAR DUE TO DRIVING CONDITIONS. *TR

Summary

I HAVE A 2010 HONDA ACCORD EXL. THE DRIVER SEAT IS VERY UNCOMFORTABLE AND COULD POSSIBLY CAUSE ACCIDENTS BY MAKING THE DRIVER SQUIRM AROUND IN THE SEAT ON LONG DRIVES. HONDA DOES NOT HAVE A INFLATABLE LUMBAR SUPPORT, BUT A CHEAP PIECE OF PLASTIC THAT DIGS INTO THE DRIVERS BACK. THIS CAUSES THE DRIVER TO HAVE TO CONSTANTLY SQUIRM AROUND ON LONG DRIVES TO TRY AND GET COMFORTABLE ENOUGH TO GET THERE. THE LUMBAR SUPPORT FEELS LIKE A BRICK IN THE DRIVERS BACK MAKING IT HARD TO FOCUS ON DRIVING. I'VE HEARD OF OWNERS REMOVING FROM THE DRIVER SEAT, THE BACK OF THE SEAT AND THEN REMOVING THE CHEAP PIECE OF LUMBAR SUPPORT PLASTIC TO GET THE BRICK FEELING OUT OF THERE BACK. I DO NOT SUGGEST THIS BUT WANT TO MAKE THE NHTSA AWARE THIS IS HAPPENING. BESIDE THE SEAT PROBLEM THE ACCORD IS A GOOD CAR, BUT I'D LIKE TO SEE A NHTSA INVESTIGATOR RENT A 2010 HONDA ACCORD EXL AND DRIVE IT FOR A FEW DAYS, THEN TAKE IT ON A LONG TRIP. SEE HOW YOUR BACK FEELS THEN.

THE CAR IS BRAND NEW. I TEST DROVE THE VEHICLE BUT DIDN'T NOTICE HOW UNCOMFORTABLE THE SEAT WAS IN SUCH A SHORT DRIVE. NOW THAT I DRIVE THE CAR EVERYDAY TO WORK, ABOUT A 45 MINUTE COMMUTE EACH WAY, ITS OBVIOUS THERE MUST BE SOME KIND OF DESIGN FLAW. I'VE ADJUSTED THE SEAT EVERY WHICH WAY POSSIBLE WITH SAME RESULT, TOTAL DISCOMFORT. I HARDLY EVER HAVE BACK PROBLEMS, NOW MY BACK HURTS EVERYDAY. MY CLAIM WAS SUBSTANTIATED WHEN I DECIDED TO GOOGLE THE PROBLEM AND FOUND THE SAME COMPLAINT BY MANY OTHER HONDA OWNERS FROM 2008 THRU 2010. I JUST CANNOT BELIEVE THAT A COMPANY WITH SUCH A GREAT REPUTATION FOR SOLID CARS CAN LET THIS GO ON AND NOT ACKNOWLEDGE THERE'S A PROBLEM. *TR

WHILE APPROACHING A LEFT TURN I WAS UNABLE TO DISCERN WHETHER AN ONCOMING ACCORD HAD ITS TURN SIGNALS ACTIVATED UNTIL VERY LATE IN MAKING MY MANEUVER. BECAUSE NHTSA HAS DETERMINED THAT DRLS ARE OF NO BENEFIT TO OVERALL SAFETY, IT SHOULD REQUIRE HONDA TO DEACTIVATE THE HIGH BEAM DRLS ON ALL ACCORD MODELS OF THE CURRENT GENERATION. *TR

THE FRONT SEATS ARE THE MOST UNCOMFORTABLE SEATS I'VE EVER EXPERIENCED. THE FRONT OF THE SEAT DOESN'T ADJUST DOWNWARD ENOUGH AND HITS THE WRONG PRESSURE POINTS UNDER THE THIGH, THUS CUTTING OFF CIRCULATION IN THE LEG. THE SEAT IS ALSO TOO LONG AND HITS AT THE BACK OF THE KNEE RIGHT WHERE YOUR LEG BENDS. THE SEAT BELT BUCKLE HITS AND PRESSES AGAINST THE LEG RIGHT WHERE THE LEG/HIP BENDS. THIS TOO CUTS OFF CIRCULATION TO THE LEG AND MAKES IT VERY DIFFICULT TO WALK WHEN YOU GET OUT OF THE CAR. I'VE BEEN EXPERIENCING BOTH LEG, HIP AND BACK PAIN SHORTLY AFTER GETTING MY NEW CAR. THIS IS A MAJOR PROBLEM SINCE I'M IN THE CAR FOR A VERY LONG TIME PERIOD ON A DAILY BASIS.

I CONSULTED AN ONLINE HONDA TECHNICIAN AND RECEIVED THIS RESPONSE: "THE PROBLEM IS THE CLUTCH MASTER CYLINDER . THERE ARE ISSUES WITH THE RODS GETTING STUCK .

Summary

I BOUGHT A NEW 2010 HONDA ACCORD AT MARIN HONDA IN LARKSPUR, CALIFORNIA ON SUNDAY 1/31/2010. BUT I DID NOT PICK UP THE CAR UNTIL MONDAY 2/1/2010 BECAUSE THE CAR WAS "NOT PREPARED" ON SUNDAY EVENING. I DROVE THE CAR HOME FROM THE DEALER IN THE AFTERNOON ON 2/1/2010 AND I BEGAN TO NOTICE A RATTLING NOISE COMING FROM THE HOOD ON DRIVER SIDE. I BROUGHT THE CAR BACK TO THE DEALER ON TUESDAY MORNING WHERE A MECHANIC SUGGESTED THAT THE NOISE MAYBE COMING FROM THE DEFECTIVE HOUSING UNIT OF THE WINDSHIELD WIPER. THE MECHANIC ORDERED THE NEW PART BUT IT WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE UNTIL NEXT WEEK. THE NOISE HAS BEEN PERSISTENT AND GETTING STRONGER/LOUDER WHEN I APPLIED THE BRAKE AND WHEN THE CAR IS IDLING AT INTERSECTION. THE STEERING WHEEL ALSO APPEARED TO SHAKE WHENEVER THIS LOUD RATTLING NOISE CAME OUT. I AM AFRAID THAT THIS PROBLEM MAYBE MORE THAT JUST A DEFECTIVE HOUSING PART OF THE WINDSHIELD WIPER, HENCE I AM REPORTING THIS TO ASSURE THAT ELECTRICAL PROBLEM OR BRAKES PROBLEM ARE NOT THE ISSUE FOR HONDA (IN LIEU OF WHAT IS GOING ON WITH TOYOTA CARS AT THE PRESENT TIME). PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAD SIMILAR COMPLAINTS FOR THE NEW MODEL HONDA ACCORD. I HAD BEEN A LOYAL CUSTOMER OF HONDA BUT THIS INCIDENCE IS MAKING ME VERY CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR QUALITY ASSURANCE SERVICE BEFORE RELEASING NEW CARS INTO THE MARKET. I THANK YOU FOR THE IMPORTANT WORK THAT YOU DO TO KEEP CONSUMERS LIKE ME SAFE ON THE ROAD. *TR
