2008 Honda Accord Recalls
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.
Honda is recalling aftermarket full nose masks, part numbers 08P35-TA0-100 and 08P35-TA6-100, specifically designed for 2008–2010 Accord models. The nose mask material may interfere with the hood latch mechanism, which may cause the hood to pop open while the vehicle is in motion. Honda asks owners to remove the mask immediately and see a dealer about getting it replaced free of charge.
2008 Honda Accord Reviews
I absolutely HATE THIS CAR!! it has been nothing but repair after repair! Had to replace brakes at $25000 at my cost only reimbursed partial. Then Honda put in wrong brakes so I need to do it again! Now air conditioner/blower went out has never worked right in first place. Leather is of poor quality!!! Very disappointed!
The 2008 accord ex-l v6 is my third accord. Unfortunately this is my last as it is very clear that honda's dedication to building rock solid, trouble free cars has gone south in a big way. Brake issues, key issues (2 sets, same problem, stopped working, replaced batteries in both, one now works, the other does not). The VCM is horrible, engine runs rough, shifting his horrible, engine ...
Overall, we enjoy the car. We had the rear brakes replaced due to the premature wear. Most recently, with minimal use, only 30K miles, garage storage day and night, the front leather tan seats started deteriorating. This is clearly a problem not due to normal wear.
