The driver side sun visor falls down blocking the view and distracting the driver. This is obviously a wide spread problem as there are a number of videos on you tube claiming to show how to repair it. Honda should have to replace these visors when they malfunction. Nhtsa is derelict if it does not address this problem! this problem happens without warning or any action on the part of the driver.

I was driving to work on the sam houston tollway going about 70 miles (with the flow of traffic) in 65 degree weather when I heard a loud sound like an explosion. I could not pull over where I was so I continued to drive. I heard the wind like you would if your windows were down a bit. I pulled the opening of the sunroof (the cover that is inside the car) and I heard the glass. I shut it immediately and drove to work. Upon arriving at work I inspected the sunroof and found no debris that would indicate something had struck my car. I called my husband and he had researched this and saw the article that brought me here to your website.

While driving my car, I re-positioned the driver side sun visor so that it would cover the drivere side window. During the re-position, the visor detached itself from the car. The visor would not go back into the socket, so I had no other choice but clip the right side of the visor into it's socket and allow the left side of the visor to hang. I had to hunch down for the remainder of my commute in order to have full visibility while driving. Once parked, I was able to work with the visor for several minutes to get it back into the socket. The visor cannot be pivoted to the left driver side, it falls every time. The visor can only remain parked or unfolded without detaching itself from the car. I face the sun during my commute to and from work, so not having full access to my visor is troublesome for my vision. I took my car in for an oil change and the dealer said, "it seems fine to me. " the problem still exists. I am reluctant to pivot the visor to take a photo because it takes so long to get it back into the socket.

We live in houston, texas area. One recent weekend, my wife and I were in my 2005 Honda Accord driving on an unoccupied road (light weekend traffic and no one within 1000 yards). My wife and I heard a huge explosion. We were in motion at the time and had no idea what happened to the car, but we knew it was powerful. Immediately following the explosion, we heard a rush of air and when opening the sunroof cover (moved backwards), we were rained with broken glass particles (anywhere from 1mm to 1inch). The sunroof had exploded and the pieces were very dangerous. Thank goodness for the cover that caught most of debris. Had we had that open, it'd have been a catastrophic result. We do not feel anything contacted the roof and can only surmise that either a major pressure change occurred, a significant temp change occurred, or a structural change caused the sunroof to explode. The vehicle has not been in any significant accidents and is in excellent shape. The sunroof was functional prior to this incident, but used very little. I had to order another sunroof and cut myself seriously while trying to install this unit.
Front windshield has what look like hard water spots and in the sunlight you cannot hardly see out. The dealer has said they acid cleaned this and some of it was removed. Now it has returned making driving into the sun impossible. Car is always in garage and it does not rain in albuquerque so it is some kind of defect in the windshield glass. I will ask the it be replaced this trip to dealer as only 9500 miles.

Wiper motor in my 2 door is not on recall but the 4 door is. Honda will not replace it even though it is the same issue that the 4 doors have. It is dangerous driving down the road in a torrential downpour when the wipers quit on you because you have zero visibility. I was forced again to stop on the side of the road on the way home in the dark so that I could be safer then driving. The rain is coming down hard and fast and the wiper motor gets wet then shorts out no matter what speed or what type of road. The recall is a shield placed on it unless it is corroded already then replaced. I want something done. Tired of stressing over all the poor quality issues Honda has had with this car. Including the recall on the recall for the airbag I just found because I came to see if my wiper motor had finally been recalled. This was an issue my son had when he owned the car also. The mileage on this vehicle just keeps going up and up because it has been an issue for years and nothing will be done about it. I am going to have to take it in for repairs and pay out of pocket because I just can't trust when it will not work again. Please help me I am disabled and don't have money for all this.
Without warning my sunroof exploded. There was no rock or any type of explanation. The sunroof unexpectedly exploded while I was driving my vehicle.
The rear window glass has wave in it that makes visibility poor and the view is distorted.
While I was driving my car down a road that was paved no faster than 35mph without any other vehicles in front or behind me or even on the other side of the road my sunroof exploded. It made the loudest scariest noise I've ever heard! when I called Honda to receive help I was entirely ignored and blown off. They basically told me it happens and is a common issue, well if that's the case why wasn't I informed of that when I bought my car?.

Driver's side mirror with convex outer edge is dangerous, especially in highway driving. It's very difficult to assess which lane oncoming traffic is in. The design makes lane changing very uneasy for the driver. I have had several close calls because of this problem during the 3 months I have owned this vehicle.
Takata recall -I am the owner of a beautiful 2005 Honda Accord ex. I am the original and only owner of my car. My car has this issue where it is burning excessive oil and engine siezes. (I mean really bad). I would get an oil change today and car would be out of oil within 2weeks. . . I've spent over 3000k dollars on trying to figure what the problem was and no mechanic could figure it out. I finally went to a special mechanic who finally did some research and figured out that this was a known issue by Honda and have not yet done a recall for the issue. . Read more...
Transmission( cvt) vibrates around 20 to 45 mph. Rear window is distorted. (wavy vision through window).
Windshield wiper motor stopped working. Driving on interstate 5 in seattle. Dark and rainy, wipers just stopped working. Car already had a recall to prevent this from happening. But still it happened. Failed recall. Had to replace motor for windshield at dealership. I have the old part. This shouldn't have had to happen. Really scary going 60 mph at night, with rain fall to suddenly lose the car wipers. Thank you god im alive and keep my glass clean.
Takata recall the windshield washer pump failed as well. This would not allow me to clear the salt spray from the windshield resulting in almost no visiblilty. I was driving in stop and go traffic on interstate 94 heading east.

Driver-side side-view mirror is split into a flat and convex parts. This is eye-stress inducing and is not natural to look at. Please replace with proper blind spot system.
Takata recall I was driving down the road when I lost control of my car. This resulted in my air bag being deployed as I came into collision with a guard rail on a city street. Luckily, only the passenger side airbag deployed. This resulted in my windshield being cracked.

Rear view camera is totally useless in situations where there is a mix of bright sunlight and shade conditions. The dynamic range of the camera isn't large enough to provide a clear picture of what is behind you. You get a blown out picture with no detail in the sunlit areas and blacks in the shade areas. I've had other cars with backup camera systems and this is the worst excuse for one I've ever seen.
The rear window is distorted which prevents a clear and accurate view of all objects behind the vehicle. This distortion affects the entire back window and it causes the objects viewed through the window to be wavy and distorted. Its effects are magnified in wet weather and at night. The distortion prevents the operator from accurately judging the size, speed and distance of the vehicles traveling behind the vehicle. The distortion occurs when the vehicle is moving and stationary.
When you put the gear on r. Revier camera is not functional in sunny day when the shade is on the bumper. You cannot tell where is the bamper and where is the shade. You can hit the aobject or person behind the car using this camera. See pictures.
