2010 Honda Accord Problems

Brakes -- Verified

The front brake rotors can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be machined or in cases where they are worn to thin, replaced to correct this issue.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

Front compliance (lower control arm ) bushings tend to crack and break requiring replacement.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

Power door locks can activate intermittently due to a faulty door lock actuator in the driver's door.

Drive Train -- Verified

Some models have shift quality problems when shifting into third gear. A new "third gear set" from Honda will address this issue.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

Plugged moon roof drains can cause a water leak inside the car. The water will usually leak onto the driver's or passenger's head when the car turns a corner.

Body, Interior & Misc., March 15, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

Drive Train, August 8, 2011

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.

2010 Honda Accord Reviews

I loved my new accord and my wife and i were in an accident and there was quite a bit of damage the front was pushed in the hood buckled uo and the drivers side fender destroyed.and to top it all my air bags failed to deploy>MY wife and myself have never been in such pain I have bruises from the seat belts and we both are very sore i even have bruises on my knees.What i would like to know is where the heck was my protection the air bags did not deploy.and we hit about a 400lb buck.Honda has yet to call me back or even have my car inspected.I think this car has failed me and I'am afraid that if this ever happened again will my air bags fail me again?I have a lemon as far as protection they should replace my car.

My 2010 Accord is very practical and reliable. It is "good", but does not do anything "great". Not a car to get terribly excited over. Mine is a 5 speed manual transmission EX, so it's more entertaining to drive, even with the anemic 4 cylinder engine. The 160 watt radio leaves an awful lot to be desired. Still, the car is solid, has nice lines, heats and cools well, drives well, and is safe.

Bought a Accord Coupe V6 MT last October. For the last month or so I've been having trouble with the car not wanting to go into 3rd gear when it's cold. Honda says they don't know anything about it. I've only owned manual transmission cars, I've gone out of my way to make sure I'm not "shifting lazy". Maybe there's a problem with the transmission?

Bought a 2010 Honda Accord Coupe V6 6MT, I put 6k miles on it and all hell broke loose. While driving at 40 mph the engine started to sputter and 3 warning light came on. Took it to Brahman Honda who identified misfiring on all 6 cylinders. 12 days later...the misfirings continue and they still have NO CLUE what to do with the car. I'm studying about lemon laws since that seems the only option I have.
