  • 2008 Honda Accord
    Visitor, Douglasville, GA, September 28, 2014 15:11
    I thought my brand new 2008 Honda accord would be my dream car but I was wrong. I too have problems with the rear brakes, air conditioner, a $700.00 repair to fix a sensor light but my biggest disappointment is the cheap interior console trim. At first it got stretchy then just tore apart. Dealer said it's normal wear and tear (??) and a letter and pictures to Honda's deaf ears....would I recommend a Honda...think not

    Bought 4 cylinder new. Within a few months a/c would only come out at my feet. Dealer had to rip out entire dash to replace a part that controls air flow. Repair worked but had minor side effects that diminished the new car feeling. Car now has 113K. Replaced front and rear brakes and rotors twice. The interior headliner is falling apart. Had to use screw in tacks to hold it up so I can see out the back window. No other major repairs but the transmission is starting to shake when shifting from 3 to 4 and from 4 to 5.

    You can solve the brake issue by purchasing cross drilled rotors and ceramic brake pads. Honda brakes run hot. Since replacing mine, I have not had a problem with warping rotors & haven't had to replace brake pads more often than regular wear & tear requires.

    91 wagon. I love it. One of the most reliable vehicles I had. 300k miles and I take it every where. Replaced distributor in past year. Parts are plentiful if the problem arises. Super easy to maintain as well. Everything works.

    Two issues: front and rear brake rotors are crap. I do a lot of mountain driving and the front rotors have warped several times. The rear rotors have cracked. I just installed drilled and slotted rotors on the rear and all is good. I had one issue with the car going into limp mode after returning from a trip to Vegas. Literally happened as I turned down my street. Pulled the code and it was the VTEC sensor. Common problem, $60 part at Honda. Easier to change than a spark plug. All is good. It does consume more oil than my prior Honda. 5 spd manual is fun to drive. Definitely would buy another, but I only have 100K miles on this one.

  • 2009 Honda Accord
    Visitor, District Heights, MD, April 15, 2014 10:47
    I had a used 99 Civic for ten years. No major hiccups. I decided to upgrade into an 09 Accord EX, 4cyl in 2009. Initially there were problems with the car. Battery went dead, rear brakes were replaced, I think all before 8K. I am a road warrior, but I don't drive my car rough. The brakes are extremely noisy even after having new ones put on and running them through the wash to rid them of dust. They are just noisy. The wheels feel a little wobbly at times, especially in the rear. There is a grinding noise when I crank the car if it has been off for a long while, almost like a pan rattling underneath. This occurred just after 100K. I live in the Metro DC area so getting from point A to B could mean a MINIMUM of 30 one way. Now that I'm at 112K, the AC just STOPPED working. I noticed the two fans are not running in front of the engine. This NEVER happened with my Civic and she had 210K on her. I'm not very happy with this car even though I was happy with my Civic, which is why I stayed with Honda. Other minor issues, the rear brake light failed (never on my Civic), the interior lights ALWAYS go first (even in my Civic), I heard a loud snap when I pulled my visor down one day and now it doesn't press flush against the ceiling of the car. I've replaced the leather arm rest and now the arm rest in the door is splitting. (NEVER use ARMOR ALL leather wipes!!) I would guess that it damages the car's interior because it is NOT leather. The driver's window was acting up a bit, like it didn't want to go all the way up, but I'm not having any issues out of it. The lumbar support stopped working and I have intermittent back problems. I MAY get an Acura, but I'm sort of leaning toward a Lexus. I'm VERY disappointed with HONDA. I expected to have this car until about 2021...but no. She may get traded this year.

  • 1995 Honda Accord
    Visitor, Minneapolis, MN, February 03, 2014 21:13
    I bought a high mile 1995 Accord EX in 2012 after an accident totaled my 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer. I was not financially prepared at the time to buy another car so I needed something very affordable and reliable to get me to work for a while. I knew this meant I would be looking for an older high mileage car. I found the Accord for sale by a private seller for $1200. The speedometer hadn't worked for some time (the only thing that didn't work), but he estimated the mileage was around 250k. The car had been meticulously maintained with records to prove it. I took it for a drive- it ran like a champ and I bought it on the spot. For the price I paid I couldn't be happier. The biggest downside for me was the car's appearance. I live in Minnesota, where years of winter road salt had rusted parts of the body pretty severely. Particularly over the rear wheel wells (a common area for rust on this car) and the bottoms of the doors. A year and a half later, after repairing the body rust damage myself, replacing the resonator (exhaust) pipe, and continuing to change the oil ahead of schedule- it's still running great and I am happily continuing to put off a car payment for as long as this car will keep on going. I am truly impressed with its reliability.

    Visitor, Prior Lake, MN, December 28, 2013 12:44
    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 may be missing also. I have 60k on this vehicle. Honda is severely damaging their reputation, not only will I not buy another honda, the word of mouth advertising will be less than appreciated by Honda over time. I am looking to step it up a notch with my next purchase but Acura is now out as well. Too bad really, Honda used to rock, now they suck. Possibly new leadership, or maybe they've become so profit oriented that they've cut costs to join the ranks of manufacturers who deal in junk for maximum return. Screw that.

    Visitor, Santa Barbara, CA, August 19, 2013 22:50
    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.

    Bought my 07 EX-L new in 2006. 108,000 and engine light just came on today. Never any major problems. Only regular oil changes when indicator shows less than 5% (every 5-6,000 mi). Best advice if you don't like the road noise or bumpiness: buy the tires designed for the car (EX & above). They're sports car tires ($1000/set @ costco, but I've only bought 2 at a time, no rotating). FD seat heater went out around 35K, my fault, and short circuited some interior lights. All minor repairs done w/ help from online videos. Just saving to buy another one before expensive problems start. Really solid car. Rides better than a luxury car.

    I have owned at least ten Honda's and this one fares worse than an old Chrysler I had. The condenser on the air conditioning went, I had to repair a freon leak 2 years ago. I have needed three remotes, the gasket around the driver side door keeps falling off, I have gone through 2 sets of brakes and I only have 50,000 ,miles. The gas mileage is awful. The leather is wearing and I am very gentle with my things. A sensor went on the engine. In the past week I had almost $2000 repair bill at the dealership.

    This is my first Honda Accord and I have had great experience with it. I have over 130,000 miles and have not had to replace much expect for general wear and tear. Like other reviews I did have premature wearing of the brakes which were repaired by a honda dealership who did a horrible job. I later had them repaired by a local auto repair shop, and they did fabulous work. My ac does run a little slow, and could be better but overall I am very pleased by the reliability of this car, and plan to purchase another honda accord.

    horrible, horrible brakes, particularly the rear pads, caliper design. front brakes a bit better, but much worse than what i expected from honda. had rear rotors and pads replaced before it reached 25k miles. dealership tried to tell me it was due to driving in the snow and salt....i almost died laughing, eventually had honda replace them, but ran into problems again within 15, miles. rear defroster is anemic, barely strong enough to take care of fogging, cannot handle ice or frost. OEM battery a joke, finally replaced with non OEM. seat heater buttons are placed poorly and there are two setting, not warm enough and burn my ass off hot. sunroof controls should be placed on roof rather than hidden on dash near driver window. other than that, it's a great car.

    I am currently driving CIVIC that I was loaned when my 2009 Accord engine light started flashing 120 miles from home. Since purchased new, Honda has replaced the battery, the rear brakes(and they didn't tell me there was a recall) and spark plugs twice. I was told the second time that if the plugs went again, I would need a new engine. I am home and my car is 120 miles away. They say they are going to charge for the loaner but I plan to argue. They also implied that I would have to pay for the machining that was done by a machine shop. I have no idea what they are actually doing to the car and when I have to drive 120 miles to get it. They have had it for 1 week today!

    I have a 2004 Honda. I am the only driver and take very good care of my car and always have routine main. done on it. The bushings are worn and torn right now. Only 102,000 miles on it. Their is a problem right now with the axle maybe. It is in the shop now. Told by another shop Honda is notorious for problems on the car that wear your tires out. I have been told their is a problem. The doors lock on me at times without notice and have read their were transmission problems on the 2004. The Honda dealer prices are way up there and there should be a recall on the bushings and the axle if it is indeed a problem now. Don't think I will buy another Honda. I am furious that this car has these problems when it is suppose to be such a good car and I have taken such good care of it.

    Comfy and Dependable! Bought it in '94 from my in-laws. Original paint didn't last very long, repainted it twice at local paint shop for less than $500 (those jobs last ~8 years). Over the years had most common problems: AT computer died $200, camshaft seal oil leak $450, A/C condenser cracked $400, radiator cracked $250, ignition switch quit $100, "igniter" $75, CV joints $250, plus a few other nit-noids. Original exhaust. Put synthetic oil in it for the first time and it started leaking oil which it never did before (right on the exhaust pipe!) Have 220,000 miles, daily driver, left me stranded twice in 18 years. Average about $250/year repairs and maintenance (mostly done myself). Need to switch back to dino oil.

    My I-4 SE 4 door with a manual transmission has almost been flawless. I really do not understand why people complain about rear window motor noise, as I rarely open the rear windows. I am approaching 125,000 miles and have the original brakes and rotors on the rear wheels. In 36,000 miles of owning the car, I have replaced a right rear wheel bearing, and had Honda do the valve adjustment. My only gripes with the car is that I wish it was an EX and I do not like how the A/C makes a clunking sound when I turn it on. I believe this may be the next problem with the car. Buy hey, the A/C pumps out freezing cold air on 100 degree MN days.

    First off, my drivers side (manual)door lock failed to open with key' I feared someone might have tried to break in. Now my passenger side fails to open with key. LOcksmiths and autobody shops say its common on Hondas and quote $300.00 each to repair. Front brakes gradually exhibited rotor problems. Now my starter motor (which requires alot of labor ) had to be replaced, along with my less than two year battery at a cost of $650.00. My extended warranty just ran out and I got a notice to bring it in on a transmision safety recall.

    Rear brakes replaced at 24,000mi. Local dealer replaced on warranty as unusual wear. Door arm rest has bubbles in the finish and leather seats are showing unusual amount of wear. Of course the third brake light rattle has been fixed twice now. Awaiting power steering pump to be replaced due to hard steering at slow maneuvering speeds into parking slots. Parts on order. 69,000 miles now on this V-6 EX-L 2008 Accord. Replacement for a 1999 Accord with 127M that never had any problems. Quality is really slipping.

    Purchased my 2002 Accord Coupe EX in 2005 at 34,600 miles. Since then, the major purchases I have made have been as follows: 2007 new front and rear brake pads, 2007 new transmission (@77K Miles - covered under powertrain warranty), 2008 new ball joints, 2009 new transmission ($89K Miles - covered under replacement transmission warranty! phew! here i think the dealer may have tried something dirty to sell me a new Honda, but they didn't check the service records to find that I had a warranty, so the guy who authorized this got fired, is my guess), 2009 new front and rear brakes with rotors, 2009 new rear wheel casing, 2010 new timing belt, water pump @105K miles, 2012 new front and rear brake pads. 2012 now the muffler needs replacing..after 7 years of ownership and 11 years of total driving and @162K miles! :) Air Conditioning, Shockups, Cabin Upholstery, Front Windshield, Body Paint are all original and in excellent shape still. With 26-27 mpg (75% highway miles) I am very pleased with the efficiency too. All in all, I'm very satisfied with my 2002 Accord and would love to step up to a Hybrid or high fuel efficiency car, and hopefully stick with a Honda.

    I got a 1994 Honda Accord 2nd hand from a relative. I've been driving it five months. It is the manual model. The good thing about this car is that most of the repairs so far have been minor. All in all, it has been a terrific car, except for three serious issues/ quirks: There is something wrong with the ignition system. This means that sometimes I have to hot wire the car in order for it to start. One mechanic evaluated it to be an "electrical problem". I have no idea what could be the problem with it. The second thing is that sometimes when it rains heavy, the inside of the cabin will leak. It's always from just underneath the visor right where the roof of the car and the windshield meet. I dread rainy days because I always arrive with a puddle in my lap. The last problem is recent and I'm certain it will be costly. This is my first manual transmission. While learning to drive this car, I have stalled, ground gears and driven while hot. (With a day or two of assistance from a friend and some Youtube videos, I had to teach myself had to drive this car). Until about last week it had never given me a problem, but now acclerating has been groggy and just... rubbish. It wants to stay at 55 and resists going any faster. All in all, for 300 bucks, it's been fantastic I have driven quite far in it and I intend to drive much farther. Stay up on your maitenence and it'll run.

    My 2002 Honda Accord EX is in the shop with warped rotors again! $495 to resurface. Honda Dealership replaced all four rotors 20,000 miles ago (August, 2012). They tell me the warranty is 12 months OR 12,000 miles so too bad for me. They always tell me too much rust - car is garaged when not driven. Yes, I do drive a lot. Original owner with 189,000 miles on car. I have never had a car where I have replaced so many brake pads and rotors. I am 60 and have not changed how I drive - so I think there is a design or material issue. May have to sell before 200,000 miles - not going to pay for another timing belt - way too expensive for value of car.

    The cost of owning and repairing my Accord is considerably more than any of my preceeding 8 Ford cars that I've owned. For those who swear by Honda, ask them how much they spend on "required/periodic maintenance" and you'll be shocked. Quality of the interior, exterior body, electrical systems, and AC are much lower than anything else I've owned. I'm not saying it's a piece of junk, but it isn't build as well as Ford cars (since the early 1990's). If I spent 1/2 as much on maintaining my Ford cars as I have on my Honda, the Fords would probably keep running past 500,000 miles. Save your money and don't throw it at a Honda.

    I purchased a new 2011 Accord EX-L 4 cyl and after 6 months I noticed a severe shimmy while driving on hwy. I took the car back to the dealer 5 times since then and they did several tire balancing each time but they were not able to resolve the problem. Now after driving for 6 months with the shimmy they claim this is "normal" for the model/engine that I have. The tires on this model a pretty good Michelin Pilot but the dealer is refusing now to even look at the car claiming nothing is wrong. If this is the Honda quality I would gladly go back to my old Nissan which did not have such issues. This is my first Honda and my last for sure.

    129k. Could have bought a brand new Accord after totalling up the cost of all the repairs. Had a 1989 Civic, too, that only made it to 100K, despite being well-maintained. Towards the end of it's life, the Accord developed a rear engine seal leak, that I deemed too costly to repair considering how much the car had already cost me. Brakes, battery, tires, radiator, axles, ball joints...Very disappointed. Why didn't either of my Honda's last like everyone else's? I have managed to make my other cars last. Then again, my husband's Cavalier sure has had it's share of issues. On the positive, neither Honda's ever left me broke down and stranded, I always made it into the repair shop parking lot even if just barely, lol.

    I'm the current owner of a 2009 Honda EX 4 cyl. Accord. After hearing about the rear brake commotion, I had a Honda dealer (Honda of Bowie) check their conditions at 20k and was told it would last me till 34k miles...had to have them replaced at 28k. Even more frustrating is that they're using the settlement as an excuse for owners to pay for some of the repairs ($50 of the $200) when it should be covered 100% by the 3yr bumper to bumper warranty. During the brake replacement, I had my vehicle's software updated for excessive oil consumption (oil burn?) issue which ironically gave my vehicle the issue they were trying to fix as this wasn't an issue before. Like clock work, I was replacing my oil every 8.3k miles. Now at 32.4k (last changed at 24.9k), my engine was nearly depleted of engine oil...I was lucky enough to notice the very brief indicators and check the oil levels at the right time. The low oil pressure indicator wasn't even reliable as it only flickered on a couple of times for a split second. With potential to damage to the heart of the vehical (the engine), this is another critical problem to go back to the drawing board. Another noticeable issue is that the engine sometimes "lags" meaning it takes it about 2 seconds to accelerate the vehicle at all after depressing the acceleration pad. In heavy traffic when trying to get past an intersection, this can be a fatal discovery. Interior, electrical/lights, heating/cooling, and suspension/steering are about class averages with no issues yet. A better design would be to go for a six speed transmission instead of five. I can't speak much to the emissions as I haven't had to get this tested yet.

    2k Accord EX V6 with 105K. Overall a good car. Replaced the Delco alternator with a Bosch unit at 50K miles. SRS light comes on continuously - can be reset - some have fixed with a seat belt buckle change. AC expansion valve replaced. Various front / rear lights & interior lights have gone out including the clock. Odometer LCD intermittent / unreadable when cold. Engine idles rough & hesitates intermittently. Repainted car at 100K due to "acid rain" etching. 4-5 times the Auto trans has gone haywire (wont up / down shift for a few seconds under hard accel).

    I bought this car new and I have over 250,000 miles on it. It has been the best car we have ever had. I can't bring myself to part with it. I know I will need to someday, but I hear so many bad reviews on all the newer models. I have replaced the timing belt, ignition switch, tires replaced 3 times. Brakes replaced 3 times. It runs better than my daughters Audi and her previous luxury cars. It only has one problem. It shimmys when I press on the brake. But it doesn't do it in cold weather.

    Accord Ex four door 4cyl, the airbag lights keep coming on once in a while after you start then stays on. Don't know when it turn itself off. Happens 4-5 times a month. And the engine light keep come on every few months after you shut it down or after it has been mantainced. Second thing issue, the bottom on the gear shift where you pust the bottom in, in order to shift to reverse or drive, it won't push in after you start the car. Either you keep onturning off and restart to try to make it work or keep on pumping the break and let it go to see if you can push the bottom in to shift the gear. Find these two options works or push the bottom next to the shift gear down to shift the gear to neutral and then start the car in order shift the stick. Really suck this car. The front bumper falls off easily due to the cheap bumper was put on the car after few grinds on the cement during parking. All the connection between the bumper to the car where so cheap. I have to screw new screws on new place places to make it tight to hold. The electric window always fail, either the left or the right. Mine is the right. Seen the motor too week to open and close the window.

    Bought car new in July 07 and now at 47K miles. I do basic maintenance using Honda parts and oil saving dealer labor cost. Brakes are typical Honda junk and replaced rotors and pads here at 47K (160.00 versus 600.00 at dealer). I will agree on lots of blogs on Honda rotors being absolute junk (both OEM and replacement). I am surprised the shaking didn't loosen the screws that hold the rotors to the hub. Will let dealer do trans service and major tuneups. Let dealer perform trans recall software update today, 9/19/11. There have been no problems with transmission I might add. Overall, car is excellent as I enjoy doing the basic maintenance and brake work myself. Great on gas (27/36) and as long as car is driven as designed, no problems. Keeping car serviced is key. I will buy an Accord next go around.

    2009 Accord EX 38,000 I have not had an issue with brakes but did receive a recall notice in the mail. But... I have the tan leather package and the front drivers seat leather cracked and has been replaced by the dealer but the replacement is also cracking after less than 18 months. The driver side door arm rest/handle "leather type material" also also torn. The console "leather type material" looks like it is getting ready to tear and seems to be wearing thin. Seems to be a common trait on other forums Of course it is out of warranty. So now I have a 2 1/2 year old car with tan duct tape on the door handle. If it was 10 years old I could give some consideration but only 2 1/2 years?

    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.

    This is my fifth and LAST Honda. The XM radio repeatedly cut out for the first year and a half of ownership. Honda was aware of the problem and was "working on it" according to the Honda representatives I spoke with on numerous occasions. Finally got the new XM unit in time for my rear brakes to go out with less than 20,000 miles. Honda insisted there was nothing wrong and refused to repair them until the class action lawsuit forced them to pay $170 of my $240 repair. When I expressed my displeasure about having to pay for repair of obviously faulty brakes and that this would be my last Honda, the Honda representative told me she would not note that in my file otherwise Honda would not help me at all! My rear deck spoiler rattled loudly, and was the subject of a service bulletin and two more trips to the dealer for repair. My air conditioner, which never worked very well now does not work at all and I was told that it would not be covered under my warranty. I read on-line that hundreds (if not thousands) of Honda Accord owners have the same problem...a faulty design that allows road debris to damage the condenser. The dealer wants $1000 to repair it and says that it will likely happen again! What has happened to Honda quality and service? I'm trading mine in and am going to give the American car companies a try. I have a 2004 Yukon with 130,000 trouble free miles on it. And I might add, I have pulled trailers through mountain passes at freeway speeds and still did not have to replace my brakes until over 100,000 miles! My advice is to not buy this car based on the likelihood of air conditioner condenser repair alone. Too bad, because I like the 6 cylinder engine and the looks of the car.

I wouldn't buy another 08. I was pleased with some of the earlier years. The quality has gone down big time.

    My 1996 Accord V6 has been in the family since brand new. Grandpa bought it off the lot and used it as the 'billy goat' vehicle to get up and down the mountains on logging roads. It lived at 8,000 ft elevation and in below 0 temperatures in the winter. I got it when it had 130k on it, when I was 17. I drove it like a teenager, fast starts and stops on traffic lights. I took it on many, many long road trips. All routine maintainence was done AT HOME, as I can't trust most mechanics these days. I replaced the O2 sensors at 140k miles, and the CV boots at 160k miles. I drove it on a 7000 mile road trip across country, and it rolled to 200k miles on that. She NEVER broke down on me. I drove all over the hills, along rough dirt raods, we have explored most of California together, I treated that car like a truck, with no problems. However, the shifting became a little rough, and she would down shift unnecissarily going up slight grades. At 207k miles, during a engine and trans oil change at home, my dad noticed an increasing amount of metal shavings on the magnet plug in the trans. On my way home from a road trip, my tansmission failed. The poor thing doesn't know park from reverse or nuetral. However, I love my Honda Accord, she has served me so very well and has NEVER broken down but now, after 208k miles, with a failed transmission, and I am rebuilding it to continue going strong. The only sign of wear after all the tough love is a little tapping sound from the engine on cold mornings or hot afternoons. I LOVE THIS CAR and would recommend it to anyone.

    My mother in law has one, and thankfully it's a lease. She (of course) has no complaints. I'm a master auto technician so I feel my opinions are just a bit more valid. The car now has 15k on it. Rotors warped around 7k. a/c cooing capactiy @ idle is terrible,it also just stops cooling for a few seconds at a time. The interior construction is not anywhere close to justifying 25-35k. The drivetrain is loader that expected and shifts are pretty firm for a gutless wonder . The engine has no low end delivery but the milage is a good trade-off. Handling is decent for a front wheel drive, but the terrible brakes negate that. HONDA FAIL

    This is my second Honda Accord, also still own a 1995 Accord Coupe with 180K miles on it and the 5-speed manual transmission - I love that car. This 2002 Honda Accord I bought used with 33K miles on it, its the V-6, automatic 2 door coupe with all the toys (leather, sunroof, spoiler, power seats, etc.,). Worked like a dream except- leather seats wore out on the drivers side, stitching came loose and seams came apart - but my major problem with this car was the transmission failing, of course at 102,000 miles! Right after the warranty expired! I thought Honda's were super reliable - well for the first 100,000 miles they apparently are. Honda wanted $5900 (the car wasn't even worth $5900 at that time) to put a new transmission in, found a mechanic who would put a USED/REBUILT transmission in for $2400; wow, what a deal. This car was mainly drive on Montana interstate - not city traffic, so little stop-and-go stress on the transmission. In the future, if I ever purchase another Honda car I will be sure it's a manual transmission.

    I have the Accord EX, with 4 banger, automatic trans, etc. The car is tight, comfortable and still running well at 90,000 miles. The transmission is starting to whine, though. This is the first serious problem. The dealer here in Temecula wanted to blame the oil change place I use, saying they might have put the wrong type of fluid in - I almost rolled on the floor laughing at that lame diagnosis by their service department. Took it to a long-established transmission shop last week and they explained that it's a bearing that's seated in the transmission case. The slot the bearing is seated in wears over time. It needs to be machined, and an oversized bearing installed. $2800+.

    The only trouble I have had with my Accord is with the brakes. I am not an agressive driver, but, I have to replace the brake pads much more frequently than in any other car that I have owned during my almost 47 years of driving.

    I bought my 2004 accord V-6 brand new. I have never had any problems with it at all. It has been the best car I have ever owned. All car manufacturers have their problems and I must say Honda has impressed me. I do love my accord and I am pretty sure my next car will be a Honda also.

    Second gear design flaw was "fixed" with the kit in 2004. In 2006, the car experienced a catastrophic transmission failure. Honda said they would pay for a replacement transmission but not the $700 labor. Then they refused to honor the free replacement of the defective radio controls and lighting module. Then they charged me $1000 for a timing belt change that actually costs $350. No more cars from a manufacturer who lies and steals.

    Brakes are my main problem. 26k miles and the rear brakes have worn prematurely down to the screeching tab. There is a class action lawsuit but you still have to pay parts and labor. You have to send the bill to the lawyers handling the case. When the case is settled you should get your money back --we'll see. The front brakes are ok according to dealer. Also had trouble with the remote key not working. Tech says it was just moisture. She opened it and removed the moisture and its working fine now. Maybe they should work on water proofing the remote. Other than this it has been a solid car.

    I have never been as dissatisfied with any vehicle as I am with my 2001 Honda Accord EXL. For the most part, this car has been good to us. We used it very seldom and have only accrued 57,000 miles on it. I am absolutely disgusted that the transmission has failed. A list of symptoms: Leaking fluid Slipping Jerking (especially when cold) D4 light blinking Check engine light is on At the dealer now diagnosed with transmission failure. American Honda refuses to do a good will replacement as we are a few months outside of the extended warranty (which should have been a recall). As there are so many cases of this listed on the Internet, there must be a way for us customers to fight back. Class action anybody? If you are a lawyer with knowledge in the subject willing to hear me out, please contact me. If you are a pissed of Honda customer with similar problems, please contact me. Let's put our heads together and make them do what is right by their customers. It has to start somewhere... Personal email missymaryjane at sbcglobal dot net. Thanks!!!

    The paint quality is subpar, the brakes are not large enough and warp fairly easy. The V6 transmissions are fragile and no amount of service keeps them happy (on my 4th) The interior illumination lights go out randomly and the bulbs are expensive! The driver seat has begin to wobble. The EGR port clogs up from time to time and catalytic converter needed to be replaced around 140k-that was costly. The A/C almost gives up in stop and go traffic on the hottest days Most things are minor, the transmission is my only grief about the V6 Accord. 10 years old with 185k on it and it's still a strong performer. No major/unexpected repairs aside from routine maintenance.

    Awesome car! Smooth ride and excellent acceleration. Mine has 300,000 miles and still runs like a champ. Easy to fix and easy on the wallet. Parts are cheap and generally in stock. I dislike the power seat belts, their motor burnt out a while ago and the interior does not hold up to wear and tear well. But they are very dependable cars! I have seen alot of complaints about break vibration....turn your rotors or get new, it helps! Also I have seen complaints on the paint/lemons/major issues on used hondas......get the car fax reports on ANY used car! Most used cars have not been kept up on maintenance...this will GREATLY increase your issues and as well with cars being repainted after an accident.

    This is my third Accord EX (2008 model) and I've had more problems with this one in the two years I've had it than the other two cars (1990, 1999) combined..... rough loud engine, unexplained noises, brakes, lack of visibility of back end of car (very unsafe), bad wind noise etc. I can't believe that the old trusted reliable Honda has sunk to such low standards. I will be selling this car soon and will not ever buy a Honda again. Where is the quality that was once a priority in the Japan made Honda?! Honda has lost it's niche as a high quality manufacturer. So disappointed.

    I had bought my Accord EX-L with approx. 39K on it, second-hand in July 2002. I had kept it up with the periodic oil changes; replacing timing belt, rotors/spark-plug wires, starter (recently), brake pads/rotors, and tires as needed. It was given a K&N Filtercharger a few years ago and noticed quicker pick-ups. I also use XLP brand (concentrated) fuel systems cleaner for extra boost for the regular gas I use here in CA. It makes the fuel burn much more efficiently and ups the mpg. Other than the parking lot combat it has sustained and the chrome finish chipping off the interior door handle; the car is a decent performer on our highways, looks good, and has great visibilty. However, I cannot say that about the other drivers. I now have approx. 205K it and I plan to be driving it for another 50K to100K more miles if everything stays together. Thanks.

    My 2007 honda accord Lx I least new and went way over the mileage so i opted to buy it. I love this car. I have owned numerous models of Accords and 1 Civic. The first problem I have had was a recall, where the rear window motors had to be replaced. They still are horrible and noisey.The front brakes are ridiculous. The crunching noise and the petal to the floor is absurd. Everywhere I bring it too says they are fine. 1 set of rotors and 1 set of brakes so far at 76 K. The paint is pretty cheap also. The car handles great, so as usual I'll keep it until 200K. Hey it could be worse I could have bought the newer model 2008 which has terrible reviews on their rear brake system. Honda has to step it up. I love their products. I currently own 2 Hondas. 2010 Pilot, Love it too.

    Gotta say, I'm surprised!!! Read through all the reviews and can't believe all the issues. Honda is supposed to be solid, but it seems otherwise. My brakes did make it to 50k before replacement, and the rotors lasted till 75K. But, now that it's 8yr old with 155k, it's all falling apart. AC issues, and just replaced transmission $$$$$$. The interior and exterior holding up well, so new tranny better get me another 100k, but reading all these reviews i'm not so sure. If need new tranny, make service manager ask Honda for Assistance, they will put up some of the cost. 20% for me. Helped a little. Good luck.

    Had a 2008 Accord 5 speed with absolutely no problems. Totaled it anf felt completely confident in getting a 2009 Accord. Got a 2009 Accord 5 speed. I complained about the brakes everytime I took it to the dealership. I have also complained on 3 occasions about a "popping sound" in the steering column, but they never heard it. Finally I took it in this past week. They now say the rear brakes are 90% worn and need to be replaced (will cost me 165) and they "popping in the steering" is something wearing so they replaced the entire steering column. Also there is rattling in the back dash that has been "fixed" on multiple occasions but comes back after a few months. And a strange smell if you have the room temp air blowing without the A/C button on. I am very disappointed in this car and would not recommend Honda to anyone mainly because what should be considered a recall or covered under bumper to bumper warranty is going to cost money out of my pocket. And replacing the brakes may not actually solve the problem if they decide next year that the rotors are causing the excessive wear on the brakes, not the brake materials.

    I bought this car for my sons first car. It has been exactly what I thought it would be. The car had over 100,000 on it when we bought it and have put roughly $1000.00 in it for typical repair items on a car of this age and mileage. 1. Water pump and timing belt, do both as they have to remove the timing belt to replace the water pump. 2. Replaced the starter, did myself and saved over $100 bucks. 3. Replaced radiator, the thing just disintegrated, it was weird, replaced myself and again saved over $100 bucks. 4. Replaced brake pads myself and saved a bunch of money. 5. Replaced window lift motor and power antena, did both of these myself. I am not a mechanic by trade have a limited knowledge but the willigness to do these things myself. Hondas are typically easy to work on just need some basic tools. We have enjoyed this car for several years now. It has been a great first car for a high school student.

    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.

    This car has been in my family since June 2007 with 66k and today it has nearly 114k, only problems it gave me are front rotors that tend to warp often giving you the dreaded steering wheel shake when braking from highway speeds and a really bad oil leak from the rear main seal which was pricey to repair. Other than that I love the car, love the smooth and strong shifting transmission (which is original on mine). Dark Emerald Pearl paint still shines beautifully that it fools people into thinking my car is only a couple years old instead of ten. 3.0L 200 hp V6 still revs smoothly and silently and is decently quick and fuel efficient. Car drives like a new car and is a pleasure to drive. It has made me a Honda lover for life and I could not see myself driving any other make. Sure its got its issues but what 10 year old car doesn't have minor ones? Only problem right now is the alternator that has a whine at idle whenever my cars lights are on so I am worried that the bearing may be failing but its is original and if it manages to give me another 2 years I'd be happy.

    Only major problems this car ever gave me was front brake rotors that had a tendency to warp often and an oil leak from the rear main seal that was costly to repair. Transmission on mine is original at 114k and shifts strong and smoothly. Engine is still smooth as silk and powerful with decent gas mileage with the 200hp J30A1 V6.. Car is still pleasing to look at and a pleasure to drive. Dark Emerald Pearl paint still shines beautiful and people think my car is still a new car constantly. My alternator does make a whining noise at night when the lights are on so I am afraid the alternator bearing may fail soon. Overall, very please with my car, it has been in my family since July 2007 with 66k and other than those 2 problems its been regular maintenance.

    Brakes, front and rear, are a disaster. Rear pads didn't even make it 20,000 miles before they had to be replaced, and front rotors and pads were shot not long after. Where's the government-ordered recall? Somebody's going to get hurt. And I gave up a a very reliable Toyota Tundra with a sound braking system for this grief?

    This is one of the most dependable cars anyone can own, the engines last for over 200k miles if treated right and the brakes can stop better than most new cars. General maitenance is all thats required for owning this car, depending on the area you live in, some slightly pricier items may need replacing quicker due to wear and tear, but nothing huge and bankrupting. My car has 141000 miles on it and still runs smooth. Note that this type of car isnt made to have fancy suspension or noise isolation of a luxury car, it is simply a durable everyday car.

    I bought this car 5 months ago. Im not sure how to review it because of course the guy that sold it to me said nothing was wrong with it, I drove it down the road to get gas, and the hood was smoking a little. I assumed since it had just had the oil changed it was spilled oil burning off...I drive home another 30mins away, and my father looked and seen the radiator was ROTTEN! It obviously had not been taken care of, having only about 56,000miles it wasnt driven often either. Replaced the radiator and things were fine. It also made a slight rattling noise underneath, I was told it was my catalytic converter cover...inside the car you can hear another "buzzing" noise that almost sounds like the spoiler is loose, but its not. I started noticing at long stop lights my brake pedal would start slowly going down to the floor, and I would drift forward!! I would put the emergency brake on and still drift (slower but still drifted) Now I had the calipers, brake pads, and rotors replaced on the passenger side so far only because my mechanic literally ran out of time since he ran into some rust and bolt problems and one side took about 4 hours, and my guy knows what hes doing!! Oh, and about a month ago my starter went out too! Lovely huh? So far this has all cost me about $550. Other than all those issues it has great gas mileage, nice interior, nice exterior (only one small rust spot for it being over 10yrs old) Im sure if I wouldnt have bought such a problematic car it would be great. Thats just a chance you have to take I suppose. Ive heard nothing but good things about Hondas, and my situation really wants me to change my mind. I guess I should be glad all of my repairs so far have been cheap, and common with older vehicles. (knock on wood!!) Hopefully after all of my brake issues it should be as good as new. Thinking about just replacing the timing belt, and water pump soon Im sure that'll be the next to go!!

    In response to all of the Brake isues with Honda. They have come out with an updated rear brake which they just released to all of the Honda dealerships. If you call your local Honda dealership they should have it available for you. Also there is a class action lawsuit regarding the rear brakes, If you have replaced your rear brake pads already then you might qualify for reimbursement. You can visit the website www.accordsettlement.com for more information

    I can't tell you how much I love my Honda. The only thing I've ever need to spend money on, outside of regular maintenance, was the a/c unit. This car is 9 1/2 years old and still runs like a dream. I was hit from behind last December, and the Mercury that hit me was totalled- pieces everywhere. My Honda? The bumper was scratched. I am proud to own a Honda, and will squeeze every ounce of life out of this one (177k miles and still running great!), then I'll buy another Honda.

    I purchased the 99 Accord w/ 80,000 and have owned the car for 6 years.It currently has 140K. The Brake lines are made of carbon steel and rusted through, I lost all the brake fluid while driving and narrowly avoided an horrific accident due to complete failure of the brakes. They were replaced with Stainless Steel. I am very surprised there is not a Honda recall on this. The A/C Compressor, Rear sway bar, Exhaust, Clutch, CV Joints, Hydralic Pump, Timing Belt, Water pump were all replaced at around 100K. I basically think Honda is a well made auto, however this particular car seems to be a lemon. I also own a 2003 Dodge Grand Sport with 125K and I have invested practically nothing in repairs. The Accord is killing me with repair costs. I am just glad the resale value is above average !!

The outlet in the center console is useless if there is anything else in there. A clunk in the gas tank when it is full. But I love the car, good performance and reliable. Good gas mileage, I avg 27+mpg, 24 if I am in town a lot. Worth the money.

    2008 Accord LXP with 26500 miles. Replaced rear brake pads at 12500 miles and again at 20980 miles. Air conditioning is ice cold then compressor will cycle and air will come out warm for a few seconds and then get cold again. Happens every minute or so no matter how hot or cool it is outside. Honda evacuated and replaced freon thinking it could be contamination and it still does it. Im thinking a/c puts too much strain on the 4cyl engine. Other than these two glitches-brakes/air conditioning, its been a great car.

So I found this 2007 coupe with 8000 miles and I think this style is better than the 08. This car has everything you could want ,all climate air,heated seats and mirrors,6 disk,running day lights, lighted steering wheel ,fog lights,daynight mirror. Going on 45000 miles and no problems.

I did to however I took it to the local Honda Dealer and he told me that I needed to replace my transmission but it was UNDER EXTENDED WARRANTY so it did not cost me ONE CENT... I suggest that everyone that has a Honda please check out the extended warranty, there was alot of problems with the transmissions and you shouldn't have to pay for the replacement... (btw my car had 36 200 miles when it was replaced... ) Good Luck.

    Over all our $33,000 Accord is good but i was and am unhappy with the body and paint. Although the midnight bk paint looks great, it is sorry in its durability! if you just look at it crosseyed the paint will come off. It seems to be one of the cheepest paints i have ever seen on a car. (we bought it new) Maybe they sold us one that had been repainted! Also the metal is so thin and easy to dent that we have a hundred dings all along the body front to back on both sides due to other cars doors and shopping baskets. The brakes are weird. They have a weird feel when stopping, and wear irregularly. We have had it checked many times and no one finds anything wrong. I believe there is air in the hydrolic lines causing the irregular wear. The computer screen we have for music, maps, audio, and a/c is cumbersome and boaring. Engine good, and heating and air are good. It is also one of the noisyest cars we have owned. it is loud to drive...you hear the road and tire sounds very loudly. If these problems are not attended to we will not buy another one.

    I bought a used 04 Accord four months ago. I had a mechanic run through the car before purchasing the vehilce ( due to the fact that the previous 98 accord I had purchased from dealer needed frame work, etc). He said it was fine an clean no less then a week later did the seat heater for passenger seat stop working due to the fact the electric seat had run the cord over to send power to the switch. Second it started making strange noises while steering due to fact it needed a steering rack. Third my tranny started slipping and next thing u know i almost get into a car accident because transmission fails in the middle of two very busy merging freeways during peak traffic hours. I also found out that it needs a new power steering pump. Honda = Reliable?? I am starting to think not!

    I have owned three Accords and the 2008 is by far the worst from a mechanical perspective. I had the front rotors and pads replaced at 5100 miles. The rear pads were next at just over 10,000 miles. Now I am replacing the rear pads again at 22,000 (not at the dealership). This is unbelievable. I have had two SUVs and a full size truck that needed less brake work than this car. It also took 4 tries for the interior trim to be repaired. Honda has always been the first place I look when it comes time for a new sedan...no more.

    Owned my 97 Honda Accord since 2001. Drove it cross country from LA to Philadelphia without a hitch. Been driving it ever since. I've had several problems the last few years with electrics - the driver side window stopped working for a while, once it was fixed, the back passenger side window went dead. Also, the radio has gone funny, and only plays AM dependably, to get FM stations to work, i have to manipulate the lights or other buttons on the dash. Currently, the car is in the shop for distributor repair and its costing me a pretty penny. I do love the car and its been reliable, never breaking down on the road (knock on wood) and only the occasional tire blow. I would definitely buy another Honda.

    Brakes are terrible!!!! Check the web, you will see that thousands of customers complain about premature rear brakes wear (at 15000 - 18000 miles!!!) and Honda makes people pay for it. The front brakes on my accord 2008 are squeaking from 3000 miles. It was 5 visits to dealer, several repairs but it is still very noisy. Remote key entry stopped working after 1 year (new battery didn't help). Dealer claims that it is my fault and I have to pay for new keys. Although Honda says about 32 MPG and more on highway with I-4 engine, my best is 24-26 MPG. Definitely, 7 visits to the dealer withing a 1st year of ownership for a brand new car for repairs is too much. I wouldn't consider buying Honda in future.

    This has been the best car of 4 that I've ever owned. Three of them were Hondas. The only things that I felt needed early maintenance were 1) the brakes and 2) the exhaust, which used to be common to Hondas. I'm currently on 168K miles and no major problems other than maintenance. The only reason I might change brands is to find a hybrid mini SUV.

    This car is great vehicle. My Accord has been very inexpensive to repair and drives well. The only issues I've had are some bulbs that have gone out in the dash and a check engine light because of a bad oxygen sensor. The faulty 02 sensor is covered by an extended warranty so I don't have to pay for it. If you need an inexpensive, reliable ride, this is it!

    Have really enjoyed this car. I did recently have a problem with the air conditioning - needed a part replacement. Of course this occurred when the temp was high. Had to wait almost a week to get the part in but they had somehow gotten it to work temporarily until the part came in. I was pleased with that. Also had the motor in the rear window replaced because of excessive noise. Was told this was a common complaint. Oh yeah, now that I think about it, the glass in the moonroof cracked but was covered by warranty.

    We will NEVER buy another Honda! Car has transmission problems which result in failure. Honda has service bulletins out on this and there was a class action lawsuit. Honda NEVER notified us of that they had service bulletins and this year of car fell within the problem years. (2001-2003 for the trans failure. Transmission had been worked on by Honda before, and problems started again. They extended warranty to 109,000 miles but mine failed at 110,000. Honda's response? Too bad, it'll be $3000 to repair. The runaround and denial by American Honda Motor Co and their customer service dept has bee deplorable ; since they KNOW there's a problem and don't let people know.

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!

    This car has 185K miles and has changed little since I inherited it with 24K miles. The engine will sometimes completely stop while driving, but just shift into neutral, coast to the side and it will restart immediately. In all these miles, only replaced one CV drive line, the ingition switch and the alternator. Fresh air vent adds a little heat even when knob is in fill cold position so this cuts down on AC effectiveness. Only problem with car is seat is very close to ground, entry and exit is awkward especially for 60+ YO large guy but that is not the car's fault.

The dealer readjusted the distance between rotors and pads and problem solved. Never use the plastic visor extender, once you do it will rattle forever. The power blower resistor in the dash had to be replaced when the ac/heater fan simply quit. Other than that it's been a very good car and I would buy another Honda.

    The Accord has been a pleasure to own. It drives smoothly, has pretty good acceleration (I have the V6) and has been very very reliable. I did get a check engine light once which turned out to be a bad catalytic converter so that needed to be repaired.

    Unlike the other reviews I haven't been so lucky with my Honda. Bought it used and at 47K miles my transmission had to be replaced. Due to the extention of the extended warrenty as a result of a Class Action suit, Honda had to replace it at no cost. When I reached 120K miles the replacement transmission died. I would love to say that this car is reliable but 3 transmissions before 120K miles is unsat.

    I loved my 96 accord! It was so reliable, and never required any repair, but I hear most hondas don't have many problems. I never had a problem with mine, and it never had to go into the shop except for the routine checks.
