2008 Honda Accord Recalls (Recent)
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. Honda asks owners to remove the mask immediately and see a dealer about getting it replaced free of charge.
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.

2008 Honda Accord Reviews
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.
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.
2008 Honda accord the worst car I ever drove. I will never buy Honda Accord in my life..
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.
