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.

RepairPal Expert Overview:
Honda and Acura are recalling numerous 2001–2004 vehicles to inspect for an internal automatic transmission fault. This fault could result in gear failure, which can cause the transmission to lock up. If the transmission were to lock up with the vehicle in motion, a crash could result. If the inspection reveals internal transmission damage, the transmission will be replaced. If no internal damaged is noted, the transmission oil cooler return line will be revised in order to increase fluid flow. For more information, please call Honda at 1-800-999-1009 or Acura at 1-800-382-2238.

RepairPal Expert Overview:
Honda has recalled 1998-1999 Accord and Acura CL, and 1999 Odyssey and Acura TL vehicles because the ignition cylinder body may be worn, which can cause the shift interlock not to function properly. If the vehicle does not securely lock in "Park" due to a worn ignition cylinder, the vehicle may roll, which can cause a safety issue. Dealers will inspect the cylinder body for wear and replace the cylinder body, collar, and latch plate if necessary. If there are no signs of wear and all is operating as designed, dealers will replace the latch plate.

Honda Accord Reviews
my 2012 Honda accord that had no problems on its last diagnostic test three months ago and now needed a rear wheel alignment with this service appointment. I am the only driver and had no unusual incident to caused an extraordinary condition
We bought a 2007 Honda Accord new with leather interior and 4 cylinder engine. We love the car most of the time until the brakes are applied. With only 17000 miles on the car, the brakes chatter so badly going down a long hill that the steering wheel vibrates violently and the whole car shakes enough to blur the instrument panel. The car will stop fine, but my wife's knuckles are white for a long time after that downhill run! The only other minor problem is that our old 1988 Toyota Camry's seats were a lot more comfortable on long trips. Despite these problems we still love our Honda, most of the time.
Been driving my 2007-Honda Accord EX for 6 years now. No major repairs :) Keep up with the required service maintenance and it will last you a long time. It has 153,000 miles and running great ! Next car.... of course... A HONDA! :)
2004 accord ex v6 rebuilt trans twice changed power steering hose then had a recall 2013 replace power steering pump twice.
The power door locks lock and unlock themselves constantly while I'm driving. This happened originally at 36,500, now all door are dead at 46,000. Dealer service are very bad at Diamond Honda. If you want to buy Honda, please review this over. I plan my other car can be any but not Honda.
