2004 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.

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

Body, Interior & Misc., November 30, 2004

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda is recalling certain sedans due to a tear in the fabric of the driver's front air bag during deployment. A torn air bag may not offer the same level of protection in the even of a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will install a protective fabric flap between the air bag module cover and the inner module.

Body, Interior & Misc., February 8, 2007

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Honda is recalling 2004–2005 Accords because the wiring harness for the seat position sensor (SPS) was attached to the wrong place on the seat frame and may have been overtightened. If the wire breaks, it may cause the SPS to fail and the air bag warning light to illuminate. A failure of the SPS may cause the air bag system to default to full inflation pressure, regardless of seat position, which can increase the risk of injury for smaller drivers. Dealers will replace the sensor wiring sub harness free of charge.

Drive Train, April 27, 2004

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.

2004 Honda Accord Reviews

2004 accord ex v6 rebuilt trans twice changed power steering hose then had a recall 2013 replace power steering pump twice.

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.

I have replaced a oxygen cecsor,brakes not too often.Sometimes I get cool air coming from the right side and warm from the left.I have had something wrong like it may be the tort in transmission.My car shakes at about 40 miles an hour.Honda want change the transmission fluid,they says it may not drive after.No one can really say what is wrong.It gets good gas mileage.I am pleased with it other wise.My right seat belt is off don't know what is wrong.
