car   Brake Master Cylinder problem 1
Failure Date: 08/14/2006

2001 Honda Accord v6 worst of 4 Honda's I have owned. Replaced all electrical under drivers seat, replaced brake sensor 3 times - allows gearshift to release. Rear main seal leak, transmission replaced, door lock motors replaced, led readout on odometer won't show one number, replaced the master cylinder. Car has not been in accident and had to have casters on front frame adjusted so it wouldn't chew up the tires. Most of this happened under warranty except for the rear main seal. This should have been a jag.

car   Brake Master Cylinder problem 2
Failure Date: 12/10/2002

2001 Honda Accord lx v6 with abs. Brake went bad at about 8500miles, master cylinder was replace by matt castrucci Honda covered by warranty. The brake failed again at 20000 miles 12/02. There was almost no brake at highway speed. And needed triple the distance to stop the car at red light. Again, it was checked and I was told that the brake master cylinder and abs margulater had gone bad. It was fixed by local matt castrucci Honda (937-439-7470) under warranty. Who knows if it is really fixed or not. I bought the car paid thousands extra for safety, now I am a "test driver" of Honda. Totally disapointed.
