Most reported Honda Accord problems
A water leak on the passenger floor can be caused by a clogged AC evaporator drain.
The ABS modulator valve assembly (hydraulic unit) may develop a brake fluid leak. This can result in illumination of the ABS warning light and in certain cases, loss of braking ability.
A Check Engine Light can come on because some models may misinterpret the ratio of air and fuel being burned for combustion. The powertrain control module (PCM) will need to be replaced to fix the problem.
On certain models, a transmission solenoid can short-circuit and illuminate the Check Engine Light.
The wipers have recently been making too wide of a sweep, resulting in a banging against the lower panel just below the windshield. The top end of the sweep is just about right. The over-wide sweep and banging occur pretty consistently now. I have not tackled the problem yet.
Overhead sunglass holder will not open/glasses stuck inside.can't shake it loose to open.
Head gasket failure is not uncommon if the engine overheats. If the temperature climbs above the normal operating temperature, turn the heater on the hottest setting, pull over to a safe location, and shut the engine off to allow the engine to cool down.
If the brake pedal feels hard the first time it is pressed in the morning, it could be due to a problem with the vacuum supply hose for the brake booster. A revised brake booster hose is available to address this concern.
