RepairPal Expert Overview:
Honda has recalled 2006 Accord, Civic, CR-V, Element, Insight, Odyssey, Pilot, Ridgeline, Acura MDX, RL, RSX, TL, TSX, and 2007 Honda Fit vehicles because the contact information for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is listed incorrectly in the owner's manual. Honda is contacting dealers and customers to provide them with a postcard containing the correct information.
RepairPal Expert Overview:
Certain driving styles can result in a broken outer race of the secondary shaft bearing inside the automatic transmission. A broken outer race may cause abnormal noise, the Check Engine Light to turn on, and contact between the transmission idle gear and an electronic sensor housing to occur. This could result in a short circuit, causing the engine to stall. Also, pieces of the outer race or ball bearing may become lodged in the parking pawl, resulting in the vehicle rolling after the driver has placed the shifter in the Park position. Dealers will update the transmission control module software to correct this concern. The Honda recall number is R89.

2006 Honda Accord Reviews
For the most part my car has had some problems from purchase from dealer in Aug,2006.
1. The whole rear suspension replaced under warranty
2. I engine has a nasty noise at cold start and only when I push down on the gas peddle. i was told that the drive train or an exhaust leak may be the problem and i am in the process of repairing it. The car now has over 60k miles and have had valve adjustement and it make it a little quiet, but still makes the nasty noise.
Bought it as brand new car. Till now had no problem. Brakes are still running good at 53k miles. About time to change tires. Its just very nice car.
I have a 2006 Accord EX-L with Navi. It has been a great car for 75000 miles and will continue to serve me for several more years, I'm sure. This is my second Accord. The only complaint I have is that the body seems made out of butter. The body & paint are quite delicate, dent & scratch easily. I have also had to replace the brakes twice, which I never had to do at all on my 2003 Accord even after 70,000 miles.
EX-L V-6, it's been a great car. Roomy both front and rear, and very comfortable. I see many 06-07 Accords on highway. Wish Honda made this body type for five years like they do with rest of models. The colors silver, and red are real classy.
The car is great. Acceleration's great! no lag. But the brakes are squeaking when braking between 30 -40 mph. then the squeaking dis appears.turning ratio is good. no leaks or rattling. good for commuting as long as can ignore the squeaking brakes, just shut the window and turn the radio loud. I brought it to the dealer and they said I needed new pad. I just go the car, and I check the pad and it stil 3/4 inch thick no thanks. Not ready to drop 250 bucks for new pads, maybe next year!
