car   Engine And Engine Cooling problem 1
Failure Date: 07/07/2016

I was leaving home on July 7th and the engine light came on just after I pulled out. Engine light is on and stays on. Testing by kia service center done on July 13th says the torque converter is going out and repairs will cost over $2,000 and will stop moving when it goes out. There is no way to estimate how long before it breaks down. The vehicle has less than 60,000 miles on it and has been well cared for and maintained. I bought this car about 2 months ago then the light came on. Research shows the same issue with the 2003 - 2004 Honda Accord that occurs before 60,000 miles. I believe this a defect in my vehicle also.

Failure Date: 02/03/2015

Unexpected acceleration with engine stuck at full throttle. . Conditions at the time: snow on road; large snow banks at sides of road. . I had backed out of my driveway in order to turn my car around so as to point front-out. I then started to back down the driveway. The car got stuck against a pile of snow part way into the driveway (we just had a series of large snowstorms, but the night was clear). I placed the transmission in "¿¿drive"¿� and attempted to exit the driveway. A wheel stated to spin (I believe it was the right front drivewheel), so I gunned the engine. The car got free, heading toward the snow bank on the side of the road opposite the driveway. I took my foot off the gas and onto the brake, applying force on the brake. The engine remained in full throttle despite my having moved my foot off the gas and onto the brake and my applying force to the brake. . The car had propelled itself into the snow bank on the opposite side of the road. The engine remained in full throttle. I could feel the pulsation of the abs system on the brake pedal under my foot as I continued to try to brake. I finally turned off the ignition. The engine stopped. I placed the transmission into "park". I then turned the ignition back on and started the engine with my foot still on the brake, and immediately the engine was again in full throttle, although in "park"¿� -- so there was no movement of the vehicle. I turned off the ignition again. I turned the ignition back on. This time the idle was normal. . I was able to back the car back into the driveway.

Failure Date: 09/07/2012

I was passing a car on the expressway doing 75 mph when the engine sent too strong a current to the spark plug which grenaded it. This sent pieces into the engine destroying it. The engine is Honda's 3. 0 vtec v6. The engine had less than 50000 miles on it when it happened. The first engine blew the same way when the motor grenaded the spark plug at 53000 miles. Honda replaced the first engine because it was under factory warranty. Honda of casper wyoming would not replace the second motor because the factory warranty was up. This is ridiculous for them not to stand by a motor when it has less than 50000 miles and the same problem that the first engine and many other owners have experienced. I was forced to buy a used car so I could get to work and was not given any trade in value. I even had to pay for the tear down on the blown motor .

I was passing a car on the expressway doing 75 mph and the engine sent an errant signal to the spark plug causing it to grenade . This sent pieces into the engine destroying it. This happened with only 47000 miles on the 3. 0 vtec v6 motor. The first motor blew the exact same way. The previous year I was stuck in a snow bank so I was putting it into drive then reverse to rock the car out of the snow bank and the engine sent an errant signal to the spark plug causing it to grenade . This sent pieces into the motor detsroying it. Honda replaced the first motor because it was still under factory warranty but wouldnt replace the second motor because it wasnt under factory warranty even though it happened with less than 50,000 miles on the motor. I was forced to purchase a used car so I could get to work and the Honda dealership wouldnt give me anything for trade-in from their piece of junk Accord.

Failure Date: 06/01/2011

Since my purchase, June of 2007 I have had several problems with the brake system and at that time Honda had fulfilled the quality expectations. However; a larger issue is at hand regarding my car transmission causing a leaking problem. Upon discovering the leakage, I immediately took my car out for service. I have now found out that Honda misdiagnosed the problem and performed unnecessary repairs charging me a $300 dollars out of my pocket. Within couple of weeks I was back at the dealership to raise my concerns about consistent leakage. At this point they advised me that it¿s transmission needs to be replaced. After 3 months of arguing and writing letters to the Honda ceo, finally the same case manager who refused to help me at first, offered a 50% coverage by Honda to replace its transmission. That is around $2000 out of my packet fixing their defective transmission. At this point, I can't drive this car. The smoke and burning smell coming from under hood causes a safety concern. I worry that if I take this car for a ride it would be my last time seeing my family. My faith in this company has been ruined forever - but thanks to one person - they don't care. Please help!!!.

Failure Date: 04/23/2008

Car was idling waiting as a gas station, foot on brakes, in drive gear, all of a sudden, the engine started to rev up (like car in neutral and pressing the gas pedal), I shifted to park and pulled the emergency brakes. Car stopped revving. Car was returned to the dealer the next day. They could not duplicate the problem. Again, on or about September 23, 2008, it happened again while waiting on line at the gas station. Did the same as before, shifted to park, pulled emergency brakes on. Revving stopped. Returned car to dealer, explained problem again. They road tested car, checked idle control, and transmission pcm for failure codes and retrieved none. The same problem happen again approximately 3 more time after that and the problem had not recurred since. Did anyone encountered a similar problem with their Honda Accord? if I did not shift to park, would the car accelerate even if my foot was still depressing the brake pedal? I read on one of the Honda forums that someone said it was a software problem? appreciate any feedback.
