Complaint received via e-mail. I purchased a brand new car, and since then I have been back to the dealership numerous amounts of times for many problems. First problem was my brakes needed to be replaced at 4600 miles, but weren't replaced until 7700 miles 3. 5 months later due to back order. Currently, with 17,900 miles the brakes were grinding again. This is my 3rd Honda, and the worse one, yet likely my last. The second problem was that my right rear door was locked for 3 months. The dealer claimed that the problem was due to getting my windows tinted, but they attempted to fix three times, and was told the third time the problem only occurs if the temperature goes below 32 degrees. Since then the temperature has been over 32 degrees. I also have problems with sulfur odor coming from the exhaust, and was told that this was normal problem ,would go away with time. But as time goes by the odor gets worse, and smells like rotten eggs. Another problem with the car is the alignment has been off since I bought the car. I have had my own mechanic look at the car, and he believes the car won't align correctly because of the axles. The final problem with my piece of crap Honda is the driver seat isn't secure, it slides very little back and forth and side to side.

Various problems with 2000 Honda Accord. The alternator failed, the egr valve failed, the srs light illuminated, the driver's seat back panel had fallen due to s defective plastic anchor pin, the a/c stopped working, and the front passenger door seal at the bottom was falling off.
(1) driver's power seat was moved to its most extreme rearward position while cleaning under the seat. Backrest was not moved or unlatched from it's normal upright position. Seat was then repositioned to its normal driving location. (2) upon sitting in the seat and leaning back against the backrest, it gave way and driver fell backwards. Holding onto the steering wheel prevented driver from falling into a nearly horizontal position. Upon releasing pressure against the backrest, it sprang back to its normal upright position. Seat would not lock into the upright position. If the latch had failed while driving the driver would have been thrown backwards and could have resulted in loss of control of vehicle with a possibility of a crash. (3) driver attempted to operate the power seat's various controls controls to re-engage latching mechanism without success. When vehicle was brought to dealer, it took about an hour of disassembling the module containing the latching mechanism module before it could be made to lock. Technician could not explain why it failed and why it repaired itself or that it wouldn't happen again with the original module. New part was ordered and is to be replaced at owner's expense week of July 5- approximate cost $400. Presently don't know if I can retain custody of old part.
Consumer stated while driving leaned back and the seat collapsed. Consumer called the dealer, and was told there was no recall, and that repair was consumer's problem. Consumer stated she will have vehicle inspected and repaired on Monday June 28, 2004.
I was driving between 0 and 5 mph when I was hit from behind. The vehicle that hit me was a 1997 Toyota camery. His appx. Speed was between 40 and 50 mph. When I exited my vehicle I noticed that the drivers seat was completly layed back. I didn't know it at the time but it appears the metal in the seat broke, causing the back of the seat to collapse. The seat was in the total reclined position. When it was delivered to combs collision, it was determined that the metal holding the top of the seat to the bottom had broken. They were not able to push the seat back up all the way. The passenger seat also had damage to it.

The consumer pulled the seat back forward to place items in the back seat of the vehicle. When the seat back was pushed back to the original position, the back would not stay in the upright position. The consumer attempted to drive the vehicle with the seat back not in the upright position and was involved in a collision with another vehicle. The consumer was cited by the police and suffered minor injuries to the arms, legs and hand.
While at a stop consumer was rear ended. This caused the driver's seat frame to snap, jerking the driver's seat forward. Dealership was notified, but did not resolve the problem.
Crushed chest, broken neck, and death of driver resulted from rear end impact of Honda Accord while sitting still.

Broken weld under driver seat permitted the seat to "rock" backwards during acceleration with possible loss of control.
Front passenger seat has for 3 years failed to lock into place after the front seat is moved forward to allow access in the backseat. My wife was sitting in the front seat and upon a abrupt stop he seat accelerated forward and she hit her head on the front windshield. Even with a seat belt on this dangerous defect could not prevent bodily injury to my wife. The manufactuer states that even after looking at this seat several time, it is operational as expected.
The driver's seat back is loose and is getting worse. I am concerned that it won't hold if there is an accident. This was first noticed a couple of months ago.
After the front passenger seat was pushed up for someone to get in to the back seat, the front seat faild to lock in its original position. The front seat slid back and forth on the track. When the consumers husband stepped on the brakes, the consumers mother who was in the passengers seat, the seat had moved forward and did not lock when it was pushed back. This problem caused the cosnumers vehicle to rearend another.
After tilting forward passenger side front seat only locks into place if the back of the seat is locked back before sliding the seat back into place. I have had several occasions where the passenger slid forward while braking. The seat belt held, but the passengers were caught by surprise. I showed the dealer this and was told well, just lock the seat back. However, when the seat has been tilted forward, passengers naturally slide it back into place. If they do not lock the back upright first, there is a chance the seat is not locked into place.
Left driver side seat collapsed after being hit from rear. Sustained injuries to back, neck and knee. Would like for this agency to conduct an investigation as to a faulty otr seat manual adjuster. Part is believed to be 81660-884-a01.
Upon acceleration driver seat fell back into back seat area. Dealer has been notified. It was determined that the weld used to tilt the seat broke, in turn, caused the seat to detach from the base.

Weld broke on my driver's seat 1999, Honda ,accord with only 38,000 miles on it. Took car to dealer, and they said the intire linkage was needed, and would cost $800. 00 for the part. Now a year later, I get a letter from Honda for a seat product recall, and a bracket is to solve this problem. For one year I have been driving a car that throws me forward and back. This is a safety issue, and a car that was only 2 years old should not have this problem. Please thank the ten people that came forwar because now Honda might correct it's mistake and my car will get fixed. Sincerely ,matthias wiepke.
