Honda Accord owners have reported 20 problems related to front suspension wheel bearing (under the suspension category).
While bringing the vehicle to a local mechanic for brake work, the staff noticed that the right front subframe had rusted through, was broken, and was likely putting stress on the right front wheel bearing. Five days later, I returned the vehicle to the out-of-town user car sales/service business from which it was purchased and they confirmed the problem, tracing it to runoff from condensation over the air conditioning compressor directly on to the corroded area. Because of the pre-existing nature of the problem, the used car salesman is willing to pay 50% of the cost, but parts (even with the use of a rust-free used subframe) and labor total cost is $1,200.

The contact owns a 2009 Honda Accord. The contact was driving approximately 30 mph when the contact heard a grinding sound near the driver side wheel. Also, the anti-lock brake warning indicator illuminated. An independent mechanic replaced the driver side wheel bearing. The manufacturer was not notified. The failure mileage was 18,000.

I noticed noise, wheel vibrations and steering problems. The Honda service department said that I had a bad wheel bearing on the left side and replaced it. After I received the car back from the shop, I noticed the car was pulling to the left, wheel vibrations, loose steering wheel and making noise. The car did not shift between gears properly and fluctuated between rpms randomly (even when at idle). I took it back to the Honda service department. This time they reset the computer in the car and performed idle relearn procedure; adjusted the toe on all four wheels. They also found that the rear rotors were out of round and "machine rear brake rotors" but reused the brake pads. I do not feel safe in this vehicle. I have scheduled another service appointment for 8/28. However, I am still having the idle rpm, shifting problems, wheel vibration issues, steering problems, noise issues as well as several other problems. This manufacture should be forced to issue a recall.

This complaint regards my 2010 Honda Accord. At around 21,500 miles, I noticed my vehicle began making a humming sound toward the front of the vehicle. This sound would increase as the car accelerated and decrease as the car decelerated. When I brought my Accord in for routine maintenance on 04/24/12, I informed the desk agent at the Honda dealership of the noise. It was determined that the noise stemmed from a wheel bearing that had gone bad on the right front passenger side of my vehicle. Although this malfunction was still covered under the factory warranty that came with the vehicle, I felt the need to report this problem as this was a premature malfunction of a very crucial part to my vehicle. It seems as if the damage occurred while my vehicle was shut off, and I cut the wheel to get a better vantage point under my wheel well. I make this assumption since I hadn't heard the noise before doing this, and then the first time I drove my car after doing this, which happened to be an hour later, the noise became apparent. Many other persons that own a similar vehicle as mine may not think much of this noise if their vehicle(s) have similar mileage such as mine since wheel bearings typically last much longer than this. This could be a catastrophic mistake if this assumption is made, so I figured it prudent to advise on my experience in case this were to happen to another vehicle owner or lessee in a similar situation to mine. For the record, my car has been regularly maintained my local Honda dealership and has not been driven in adverse conditions.

Popping sounds and buzzing sounds while driving. Leasing a brand new Honda Accord less than a month ago. Went to the dealership about 7 times already.

1) the vehicle shakes at high speed. 2) the vehicle at slow speed sounds like the wheel bearings are grinding themselves down
3) the vehicle vibrates at slow and high speed but more so at high speed when pressing the brake peddle
4) the vehicle was brought to the dealership 3 times for these problems with the drive train and the brakes. Still after the third time of having new brakes and wheel bearing the vehicle continues to vibrate to such a manner as I feel it highly unsafe.

1) new wheel bearing at 10,768 miles
2) new transmission and removal/replacement of same shift cable at 10,791 miles (service tech acknowledges the noise on the work ticket)
3) rotate and balance of tires due to a serious vibration problem in the steering wheel at 10,791 miles
4) resurfacing of original rotors, 4-wheel alignment due to noise at 11,002 miles
5) replacement of old rotors with new rotors and brake pads at 11,184 miles. We cannot understand why all this work has been performed on our vehicle if everyone now states that they cannot hear the grinding noise. We have made multiple good faith attempts (5 logged which includes the final attempt, and 1 not logged), to have our car repaired correctly. At this time, we are only left with the route of arbitration procedures or be left with a substandard Honda product.

While accelerating from a stop the accelerator pedal became stuck intermittently. The consumer was able to decelerate the vehicle. Dealership repaired the iac valve. Both rear seat belt became stuck. The transmission was very noisy. Both front wheel bearing were replaced because they were making noise.

The front wheel bearing seized up and wore down the spindle. This resulted in the vehicle pulling to the left while driving. The dealership replaced the front wheel bearing and spindle, but the cause of the failure was undetermined.
In 3-04 (1 year old -approximately) noticed a noise in front(wobbling/metallic)at highway speeds. Could not determine if noise was coming from the front/back but appeared to be louder in front. Returned vehicle to dealer (4-9-04) but they failed to find any problem. Problem remained consistent, did not worsen significantly during the next 8-10 months. Sometime in early 2005, noise began to get worse. Brought to a repair shop. Cause could not be located but determined that back left rear tire was wearing unevenly and it was suggested that possibly tires had been rotated incorrectly in 2004. Back-wheel alignment was performed and new tires were purchased in may 05. Noise appeared to subside. In late 05, noise returned & began to worsen. Although brakes had approximately 30% wear still left on them, replaced them in 12/05. Took vehicle to local shop on 3/10/06. New tires had worn on the left rear but cause could not be determined. Returned to the dealer on 3/17 who determined that 3 of 4 wheels had defective wheel bearings. It was recommended that the left front and left rear be replaced immediately and that the right front be replaced in near future. We had the dealer replace the two left bearings and had a local mechanic replace the rf on 3/24/06. A 2nd back wheel alignment was performed/new set of tires now needed. The dealer has indicated this is a rare failure. Hard to believe that something this "rare" can occur on 3 wheels unless product is defective. Internet contains multiple cases of similar complaints about the Accord (var. Years). In some instances, bearings had to be replaced multiple times!
almost all driving is at hwy speeds. Vehicle has approx. 87000 miles on it we did not return the vehicle to the dealership after they failed to diagnose the problem initially because we live more than 120 miles (round trip) from our home and it requires that I take a day off of work to return the vehicle to them.

Three of the wheel bearings were replaced under warranty in the first 36,000 miles on the car. There are now 58,000 on the car, and another bearing is going bad. I am not sure at this time which bearing it is.

While returning from vacation the car began to make noises from both front tire areas. The car suspension felt loose and there was a distinct lack of control. The Honda dealer took it in immediately and replaced both front wheel bearings and the links that hold the stabilizing bars to the frame. We have already replaced the bearings in the back wheels.
While traveling there was a noise coming from the front end of vehicle, consumer had vehicle serviced, technician noticed wheel bearing needed to be replaced. Consumer stated that three out of the four wheel bearings were damaged.
