Sometimes My Car Makes A Grinding Noise When I Turn The Key To Start It. I Took My Car Twice To The Metro honda Dealer In Montclair, Ca; But Even Though I Have The Extended Guarantee, They Refuse To Check My Car. I Do Not Know What To Do. I Did Some Research On The Internet, And I Found Out That A Lot Of People Are Having The Same Problem; And Some Of Them Had Replaced The Vtc Actuator, And The Problem Was Fixed. I Mentioned This To The Maintenance Experts At Metro honda, But They Still Do Not Care. My Concern Is That This Is A Situation That Is Not On A Recall List. What Should I Do? *tr

I Bought My 2008 accord Used With 32k On It. honda Had A Great Record With Reliability And Quality In The Past So This Car, I Figured, Would Be No Different. After About A Month Of Ownership, I Noticed The Oil Was Low. I Checked The Oil When I Bought The Car And It Was Full, And It Was Now Down About A Half A Quart. I Took My Car To The honda Dealership And Told Them About The Oil Consumption. They Topped Me Off, And Put Me On An Oil Consumption Test. Interestingly Enough, There Was An Oil Consumption Recall On My Car About A Month Later. The Dealership Updated The Software To Prevent Oil Consumption And I Was Sent On My Way. About A Month Later, My Car Was Still Consuming Oil At About A Quart Per 2290miles. That Was The Official honda Tally At The End Of My Oil Consumption Test. I Contacted honda Through Written Letter And Phone Call Saying That Their Recall/software Update Did Not Work And That My Car Was Still Consuming Oil. American honda Was Unable To Provide Me With Any Documentation About What Acceptable Oil Consumption On A Car Was, But In Their Words It Was 1qt/1000 Miles. No Where In The Bill Of Sale Or Owners Manual Does It Say The Owner Will Have To Add Oil During Regular Driving To Keep The Oil At Acceptable Levels. Talking With Both American honda And Dealerships As Well, They Refuse To Fix The Problem And They Are Unable To Provide Any Proof That Consuming Oil At This Rate Will Not Harm The Car. I Am Currently Adding About 1qt/1500miles To Keep My Car From Running Out Of Oil, And Under The 5year 60k Warranty, honda Still Has Not Fixed The Problem. I Have All Of My Receipts Of Repairs And Routine Maintenance From The Dealership Along With Dated Phone Conversations To honda Reps Including Case Numbers. People Need To Know honda‘s Malicious And Greedy Intent Not To Honor Its Warranty And Fix Its Cars. Mine Still Has Yet To Be Fixed. *tr

My 2008 honda accord Ex-l Started Making A Small Rattle Noise In December 2009, The Car Sales Man Said It Was Because The Car Needed To Warm Up And Because The Car Was Sitting For A While. A Couple Years Later I Brought The Vehicle In And Had It Checked, But The Dealer Did Not Hear The Sound. This Was Not Documented By The honda Dealership. In June Of 2012, I Brought The Vehicle To The Dealer Again After I Noticed The Sound More Frequently. They Let The Vehicle Sit Over Night And Informed Me The Next Morning That The Vtc Actuator Needed To Be Replaced. At This Time I Had Exceeded My Extended Warranty Of 100,000 Miles. The Vehicle Was At Approximately 105,000 Miles When The Dealership Diagnosed The Problem. On October 3, 2012 My Oil Light Flashed On And Then Back Off. I Had My Father To Check The Oil And There Was Absolutely No Oil In The Chamber. I Immediately Went And Purchased 3 Quarts Of Oil Until The Next Morning When I Was Able To Bring The Vehicle To The honda Dealer. I Called Sterling Mccall honda And Explained The Issue That I Was Experiencing And Was Scheduled An Appointment To Have To Vehicle Checked First Thing In The Morning. After Speaking To The Rep, I Began Researching The Issue And Found That Several Complaints Were On The Exact Same Issue. (the Rattle At A Cold Start Up And Oil Consumption Issues Relating The Vtc Actuator.) After Doing More Research I Obtained A Service Bulletin About The Rattle At Cold Start Up And Found A Court Document Relating To A Class Action Lawsuit Filed In March 2012 Relating To The Faulty Vtc Actuator. The Next Morning October 4, 2012 I Brought The Vehicle In, Had The Oil Changed And Asked For A Goodwill Consideration. After Speaking To A honda Service Rep About The Issue He Stated That He Doubt The Possibility Of Getting A Goodwill Consideration Because Of The High Mileage On The Vehicle. I Was Not Assisted In Getting Repai. *tr

Driving On The Highway, Felt A Slight Hesitation And Then Check Engine Light Came On. Immediately Exited And When I Came To A Stop, The Car Was Idling Very Rough. Did Research And It’s Very Evident That This Is A Known Issue By honda Because Several People Have Complained That Cylinder #3 Spark Plug Is So Damaged That Ceramic Pieces Are Completely Missing! I Can’t Believe That There Hasn’t Been A Recall With So Many Incidents. I Am Being Told That honda Will Not Cover This As My Car Is No Longer Under Warranty! This Should Be A Recall!

I Was Told At My Last Oil Change That My Oil Level Was Extremely Low But Yet There Were No Signs Of Any Leaks. This Too Should Be A Recall! *tr

Back In August I Took My Car To Southeastern honda Dealer Like I Routinely Do To Have My Oil Changed. It Was Suggested By Service Rep To Change My Transmission Fluid, Which I Did.

2008 honda accord Purchased New At Gary Force honda Bowling Green Ky. First Issue: Cold Start Rattle, Dealer Replaced Atc Actuator, Problem Corrected. Have Replaced Brakes On The Car 4 Times. Most Recently Replaced Approximately 1 Year Ago And Now When Brakes Are Applied The Steering Wheel Vibrates Worse Than A Road Wagon. At 70,000 Miles Oil Light Came On, Checked Oil And None Was On The Stick. Added Oil, Took The Car To Dealer, They Replaced Vtc Actuator But It Did Not Correct The Problem. Complained Again And They Performed Oil Consumption Analysis Only To Tell Me It Was Using Less Than One Quart Per One Thousand Miles And That Was The Industry Standard. A Few Months Later I Became More Irritated About The Problem And Complained Again. They Performed Another Oil Consumption Analysis To Tell Me It Was Using More Than It Was Previously But Less Than One Quart Per 1000 Miles And Wouldn’t Do Anything. Currently The Car Has 100000 Miles On It And Yes, The Warranty Just Expired And It’s Using One Quart Per 1200 Miles. I Wrote honda Of America A Letter And Complained. They Called But Other Than Kind Words, They Did Nothing. Oh And Have I Mentioned The Head Lights…. They Blink When The Heat Or Air Is On. I Must Not Forget That The Leather On Both The Arm Rest And Console Has Bubbled Up But No Signs Of Wear Or Damage Around The Bubbles. And Let Me Not Forget The Most Recent Issue: Now Often Times While Setting Completely Still At A Stop Light And/or Going Down The Road I Hear A Clicking Sound In The Steering Column. I Am Not Turning The Steering Wheel When I Hear This Noise. It Just Starts Clicking, Kind Of Like An Electronic Click Coming From The Steering Column. Oh What A Piece Of Junk honda Made When It Built The 2008 accord. Paid 30,000 For It And I’m Sadly Disappointed. *tr

This Was The Second Time My Car Accelerated For No Reasons While I Was Driving. The First Time I Was Only Driving 35 Miles An Hour And No One Was In Front Of Me. The Second Time The Car Accelerated As I Was Stopping At A Red Light. I Barely Missed A Car By One Foot. Both Times I Went To The honda Dealership In Sanford. Long Story Short…no One Knows How To Fix It. I Am Extremely Upset Over The Idea That There Are All Car Owners With These Electronic Systems That Don’t Work. The Second Time My Three Year Grandson Was In The Back Seat. The Dealership Said The Electronic System Sent A Message That Designated That There Was An Acceleration Or Malfunction. Anyway I Am Sending This Because I Wanted My Car Fixed And Because It Is A Paper Trail If Someone Gets Killed In This Car. I Will No Longer Own A honda. This Was My Second honda And Until This I Was Very Satisfied. I Now Have A Car Paid For That I Cannot Drive. I Do Want The Public To Be Aware Of This Problem. [xxx] I Don’t Have The Vin Number. My Car Is Parted Outside The Dealership In Sanford, N.c. Waiting For Me To Pick It Back Up. Information Redacted Pursuant To The Freedom Of Information Act (foia), 5 U.s.c. 552(b)(6). *tr

I Noticed Transmission Fluid Leaking From My Vehicle. Took My Car To A Trusted Independent Mechanic, Who Determined And Documented The Fluid Leak Is Coming From A “split-case Gasket”, Where Both Case Halves Bolt Together. His Opinion Was That A Transmission Fluid Leak Is Highly Unusual On A Low Mileage honda And That He Suspected A Defective Gasket That Was Improperly Sealed, Prior To Leaving The Factory. Made An Appointment With The Service Department Of Leith honda In Raleigh,n.c., Where The Vehicle Was Originally Purchased, On August 29th, 2013. The Torque Converter Seal Was Found To Be “leaking” And It Would Cost$ 1993.00 To Repair, Which The Dealer Would Not Assume. This Is Historically Been A Long Standing Problem With honda Vehicles, Which Eventually Causes Transmission Slippage, Extensive Transmission Damage, Loss Of Power, Causing The Vehicle To Suddenly Stop. This Potentially Can Lead To Severe Injuries And Death . I Consider This Problem A Critical Safety Issue, Well Known To The Manufacturer And Dealers. I Am Appalled And Outraged By honda‘s Lack Of Integrity And Apparent Disregard Fo Public Safety..i Am Sure It Is Related To Their “bottom Line” I Respectfully Am Requesting Your Agency To Investigate My Complaint And To Review Other Owners Complaints And Horrendous Experiences, On Line. Please Force Them To Acknowledge These Defects And Make Them Accountable To Prevent Future Injuries And Deaths, That Likely Will Occur To Unsuspecting honda Owners.

Unfortunately You Can Only Go To honda To Have The Computer Updated, And They Will Try To Sell Additional Services. Today They Refused To Update My Computer Stating The Only Way To Fix Was To Replace All The Sparkplugs Despite The Service Bulletin Stating Otherwise. Despite This Being A Manufacturer Issue honda Has Forced Car Owners To Pay For This Repair With No True Fix Existing. *tr

Hello, I Have A 2008, V4 honda accord. I Started Having Problems Back October 2012 With The Oil. When I Get An Oil Change, I Would Need To Add At Least 2 Quarts Of Oil Before The Next Oil Change Is Do. It Started Off With Adding Oil The Very Next Month After A New Oil Change! That Is So Ridiculous. The Only Way I Would Know That I Needed More Oil Was There Would Be A Burning Smell Coming From The Car And A Knocking Noise. My Oil Light Indicator Would Never Light Up-which Is Another Malfunction. I Took The Car To honda For Servicing And Told Them What The Car Was Doing. They Told Me That They Did Not See Anything And That If It Persists To Bring It Back In. So Immediately I?m Thinking That Maybe They Are Not Changing The Oil Correctly?! So The Next Few Months I Kind Of Kept Track Of The Oil And Took My Car Somewhere Else For The Oil Change To See If That Made A Difference. Within The Past Year Since Then, I Have Had 4 Oil Changes With The Other Place And They Did Tell Me That There Is Probably A honda Malfunction Going On Because The Car Is Not Supposed To Keep Losing Oil Within Oil Changes And Having To Add Oil!! I Am Going To Take My Car In Again To honda And See What They Are Going To Do. I Just Do Not Want To Have The Car Engine Blow Up On Me Because Of Something honda Should Have Repaired. If Someone Else Has Had Any Resolution To Their honda Place, Please Contact Me At [xxx]thanks. Information Redacted Pursuant To The Freedom Of Information Act (foia), 5 U.s.c. 552(b)(6). *tr

I Have The 2008 honda accord With The 4cyl Engine And Drive Approximately 8 Miles Per Day. Within The Last Few Months I Have Noticed Significant Oil Loss In Between Oil Changes. Approximately 3-4 Quarts Needs To Be Added In Between Oil Changes. There Is Not A Leak To Be Found And I Am Not Blowing Smoke Out Of The Tailpipe. Upon Additional Research, I’ve Found That Multiple Other Owners Of The Exact Same Make And Model Vehicle Are Having This Same Issue. I’ve Taken The Vehicle To A Local Shop To Have It Looked At, But Still Don’t Have A Resolve. honda Just Recently Lost A Class Action Suit Regarding The V6 Models, But Still Won’t Admit To The Issue With The 4cyl Model. I Have Had Estimates Anywhere From $500 On Up To A Complete Engine Overhaul, Which Is Far More Than I Can Afford. honda Needs To Take Responsibility For This And Fix The Problem. I’ve Owned Many Other honda‘s And This Is The First I’ve Ever Seen Do Something Like This. Please Help! Thank You *tr

I Bought This accord Used With 95,000 Miles On It. When I Went To Change The Oil After 3000 Miles, It Was Very, Very Low On Oil. I Might Have Taken Two Quarts Out, Maybe Less. I Started Watching The Oil Consumption, Which Has Gotten Worse. I Now Add About 1.5 Quarts Every 1000 Miles. It Emits No Blue Smoke From The Exhaust And Has No Oil Leaks. It’s Getting Worse. After Owning A Very Reliable 2005 Civic, This Car Has Been A Complete Disappointment. My honda Dealer Won’t Even Return My Call (i’ve Called Them 18 Times) And When I Go In Person, They Tell Me They Will Have To Consult With The Manufacturer’s Specialist, Who Only Stops In The Dealership Every 2 Weeks. I’ve Going In Person To Ask About This 4 Times. honda Has Offered A Horrible Customer Service Experience Thus Far. *tr
