Failure Date: 07/13/2011

Since the purchase i’ve experienced continual transmission problems. Upon speaking with the dealership I was assured all was fine. You can imagine my surprise when I received notice of the transmission recall (NHTSA 04v176000). Upon repair, in September 2004, I did not notice repair improvement, and continued to detect the rough grind of transmission shift and a whining sound. In 2009 I experienced a catastrophic transmission failure to which I had sought repair. In December 2010 I experienced another transmission failure. I have just now experienced my 3rd transmission failure, July 2011. My power steering pump had always had a faint whine, but Honda services never identified it as concerning. The problem progressively became worse until Honda finally suggested a repair, but informed me that the component was then out of warranty and would be a costly repair. I decided to delay repair until June 2011. Ac problems manifested in September 2005 and required replacement in April 2008. My center council clock and temperature display has been flickering, dimmed, and absent since 2009. The interlock stuck issue first materialized in 2008 and serviced in July 2010. My airbag warning light has been active since 2008 with an occasional but repetitive tcs alert; and my headlamp glass has been hazed since 2005. The paint deterioration is ridiculously embarrassing, the leather seating began showing wear 2 years in, my seatbelt doesn’t return to the original released position, head liner has water leak stains, cd player stopped working, exposed wiring is visible at the driver door hinge, i’ve gone through 3 batteries, countless tires, one cracked windshield, and I have always suffer from poor radio reception and occasional navigational signal roaming issues. In these times of thrift conscious fuel consumption, I utilize my nav tools to monitor my driving activity. I’m stunned to report I get a fuel economy of 24 mpg highway, not the 31 mpg as sticker reports.

While not crashes or injuries have been related to the Honda vehicle I own, there are a number of engineering and manufacturing defects on the vehicle which are a cause of serious safety concerns. I have a 2002 Honda Accord with about 131,000 miles which has had the following issues: 1. The transmission went out around 60,000 miles and was replaced by Honda. At around 100,000 miles the transmission started to exhibit same symptoms. I took the car in, but, of course, Honda dealer said there is nothing wrong. Then around 116,000 miles a Honda mechanic said that my model of a car has an issue with transmissions and that it would need to be replaced. The transmission issue is bad enough to have a website dedicated to it. While a transmission failing is not necessarily a safety issue, loosing vehicle control and drivable on the highway could be. 2. Now the vehicle starts to vibrate at highway speeds despite having new and balanced tires on it. I took the car in to get new struts. Since then I took the car to a mechanic of very high integrity (not the Honda dealer) and they said that unfortunately, the problem may simply be ?impossible? to fix since everything they could see indicated that car should behave normally, I. E. The tires were fine, the alignment was fine, and the cv joints were fine. This is becoming more and more of the issue and indicates a possible design flaw with the vehicle. 3. The lights on the vehicle are horrible. This is a safety issue as it seriously impairs the vehicle drivability. 4. The rails for the driver's seat had to be replaced around 32,000 miles and now (at around 130,000 miles) the seat seems to wobble again. This could be a potential safety issue as it seems that the seat could simply detach in the case of an accident. Updated 05/07/10.

I took delivery of 2008 Honda Accord coupe (4 cylinder automatic) in August of 2008. From day one I experience a steering wheel and suspension/drivetrain vibration & shimmy at speeds between 45-65 mph. The dealer replaced tires and wheels, and balanced four wheels during first service visit. On the second and last offered service visit for this defect, the dealer determined that the vehicle was "operating as designed". They did not state that they could not verify the complaint and stated they would not make anymore attempts to diagnose or repair the problem.

Two front end alignments were performed and the tires were rotated. A technical service bulletin indicated that this problem occurred because the crate upon which the engine sits was not positioned correctly at the factory. The dealership positioned the crate correctly, but the problem recurred. The consumer noticed when he backed up the vehicle , a click would be heard as if the gear was not positioned correctly. The vehicle was pulling to the right. The consumer also felt something like a crate or tire axle would shift to one side. The consumer was told that was the way the vehicle was designed.

I purchased a 2003 Accord in June 2003. The day I drove it off the lot I noticed a vibration that can be felt in the steering wheel. I took it to the dealer, and they claimed that the vibration was caused by out of balance tires, and their solution was to balance all four wheels. After balancing the tires, the vibration still existed. I took my car back for an oil change and told them that the vibration was still present. I took the technician on a test drive and he confirmed the vibration, however when I returned to pick up my car it was indicated on the report that the vibration was a normal condition of the Honda Accord. Strong vibrations in the steering wheel are not normal, and Honda should take corrective action to fix this problem.

My name is tracy messel and I purchased a 2003 Honda Accord coupe ex (2-door coupe) from the madison Honda dealer located in madison, NJ in April of 2003. A few months after I purchased my new car I realized that my car was pulling to the right side of the road. I took my car into Honda and they rotated my tires telling me that the problem wasn't an alignment issue but balancing of the tires. I drove my car and realized that is was pulling to the left side of the road, I took my car in again and they re-rotated and balanced my tires. After that, my car started pulling to the right side of the road. I then took my car in again stating that I wanted to have the tires checked out as it appeared that the problem followed the tires. They said the tires were fine and there was something off in my front suspension that they re-adjusted. I drove my car after the adjustment to discover that the car still pulled to the right side of the road. I took it in yet again and drove with a mechanic who told me that this was normal for all 2003 Accords to pull to the right side of the road and there was nothing more that they could do as my car was within their specifications. Not being satisfied I kept requesting to speak to more individuals within the Honda organization only to be told they would do nothing more, that pulling to the right is normal on all cars. I am not satisfied with the answer that Honda had given me and I wanted to raise this issue to the national security council as I think this is a very serious risk if my car is pulling to the right side of the road. I could be putting not only myself at danger but others on the road around me. Any response would be appreciated. Thanks!.

There is no adjustment for the right rear camber. The car therefore has never been in proper alignment. The result is that I have had premature wear on my tires. I went to have my front end aligned when the dealer informed me of the problem. I feel Honda should be responsible for replacing the parts that would put the car in proper alignment. The car has never been in an accident and shows no signs of impact.
