If You Are Driving At Any Speed Over 40 Mph And Begin To Stop; The Steering Wheel Vibrates And The Front End Has A Knocking Sound. Taking The Car In For service Multiple Times And Having This Issue Noted. I Have Been Told On Three Different Occasion That My Rotors Are Wrapped And Need To Be Turned Down. Having The Rotors Turn, Soon As I Left The Lot . The Issue Still Remained. The Most Offensive Remarks Made By A honda service Rep. Is” I Have Poor Driving Habits.” Thinking I Was Going Crazy, I Asked A Total Stranger At My Local Supermarket Driving A 2008 accord. They Told Me They Also Have Been Experiencing The Same Issue With The Car And honda‘s service Dept.

We Had To Have The Brakes Repaired Again. We Purchased The Vehicle As A Certified Pre-owned honda. We Replaced The Brakes Last October 2011. 15,000 Miles Later, We Had To Replace Them Again? We Took Our honda accord To A honda Dealer In Ft. Worth (frank Kent honda) For A Recall Repair And They Said We Needed New Brakes. We Took The honda To Just Brakes In Ft. Worth And The Manager Said Our honda Has A Caliper And Brake Problem Associated With 2009 honda accords. The Caliper Causes The Brakes To Not “disengage” Causing “friction” Thus Wearing The Brakes Down Way Too Quickly????? Really?? This Is News To Us? Nothing Was Said When We Bought The honda In January 2011. From Huggins honda In Ft. Worth.? Nothing Was Mentioned By Frank Kent honda When They Said We Needed New Brake Pads? Now I Have Read An Article Explaining A Law Suit Over The Brakes? Why Are honda Owners Not Being Told Or Warned About This??? *tr

I Took My Car In For An Oil Change And Tire Rotation And Was Told The Rear Brake Pads Needed To Be Replace. I Found Out That A Lawsuit Was Settled In 2010 And People Were Informed Of This. We Never Received Any Notice And When I Contacted My Local honda Dealer I Was Told There Was Nothing They Could Do About Because There Wasn’t A Recall Notice. When I Contacted Corporate I Was Directed To The Law Firms Website That Informed Me It Was To Late To File A Claim. What Can I Do About This? Thank You. *tr

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

My Wife And I Purchased A 2008 honda accord (certified Pre-owned) January 06, 2010. The Mileage Was 46,399. The honda Dealer Said The Brakes Were New. (certified Pre-owned) We Had To Replace The Brakes July 2011 At 53,096 Miles. (6697 Miles Later) August 2012 We Had To Replace Brakes Rotors And Calipers 68007 Miles. At This Time We Were Advised Of A Defect In The Braking System By Just Brakes.. We Contacted honda And They Said Since We Were Not The Original Owners And We Did Not Take Action Sooner (prior 2010?) We Would Not Be Reimbursed For These Repairs. (honda Settles Lawsuit Over This Matter??) We Also Had To Replace The Tires In August 2012 As Well. Since The Repair Of The Brakes And Calipers We Have Not Had Any Issues And The Gas Mileage Increased. We Have Spent Hundreds Of Dollars Trying To Fix A Problem That honda Has Known About. A “certified Pre-owned” honda Should Qualify For The Reimbursement That honda Has Offered, Even Though We Were Not The Original Owners. Since We Did Not Know About The “problem” Until After 2010 (after The Purchase Of The Vehicle) We Could Not Had Acted In Time. It Is My Understanding There Was A “safety Bulletin” About This Issue? If There Was, Why Didn’t honda/dealer Notify Us Of This Issue? Or Shouldn’t They Have Fixed This Issue Before Selling The honda As A “certified Pre-owned” Vehicle? I Received A Letter From honda Yesterday About A Defect (control Arm) In The 2006, 2007 & 2008 honda Civic And Reimbursement Available For This Law Suit. I Would Like honda To Remedy The Situation On My 2008 honda accord. *tr

I Bought This Car Pre Owned At 15k The Back Brake Went Out On This Car After 1year At 24k I Replace Brake Myself I Was Curious Why Would A Back Brake Wear Out So Fast On Doing Online Lookup I Found Numerous Owners Had The Same Problem So I Called honda Regional Office And I Given A Refund For The Expense. Now Last Year June I Notice Cold Rattle Start On My Engine And Now Is Progressively Getting Louder. I Did A Look Up Online And My Mechanic Said It Vtc ( Variable Timing Control ) Actuator Was Found To Be Defective.

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

Despite The Recall A Few Years Ago, honda Still Ignores The Problem Of Rear Brakes That Wear Out Rapidly And Therefore Require Frequent Replacement. At Just Over 91,000 Miles, I Now Have To Schedule My 3rd Rear Brake Replacement And It Will Be The Second Time That I Must Replace The Rear Rotors. honda Refuses To Acknowledge That Their Rear Brakes Are Flawed And Seem To Not Feel Obligated To Correct Them. They Also Do Not Feel As Though They Should Offer Any Financial Assistance For The Replacement Of Their Substandard Rear Brakes. We Are Therefore Forced Into High Rear Brake And Rotor Replacement Bills. Perhaps It Was Their Plan All Along To Bilk Unsuspecting Customers. This Is A Serious Safety Issue That honda Needs To Remedy Immediately. *tt

General Concerns. However I Am Concerned About The Airbag, Engine And Brakes Problem Especially. honda Has Not Made Us Aware Of Any Problems With This Vehicle. Thankfully We Have Only Had Premature Replacement Of Brakes. We Are Aware Of Consumer Complaints Only Because We Are Concerned About Our Product Which We Assume To Be Safe And Reliable . You Can Rely On Our Qualitymaintenance Program, We Have Been Alerted By Mail Of A Pending Suit We Cannot Benefit From Class Action Because We Have No Incident To Report. honda Corporate And Dealers Owe Us Consumers True And Fair Information And Timely Communications . Gmc Had To Kill People Before They Were Found To Be Irresponsible. Consider This A Complaint About Brakes, Failure To Take Responsibility, Failure To Notify, Regarding Other Possible Problems Especially Airbags
