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.

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.

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.

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.

There appears to be a problem with distorted glass being used in the rear windows of 2016 Honda Accords. Looking through the rear window of my Accord sport, vehicles and especially lane markings appear out of focus and wavy. The problem is even worse in rainy conditions. This makes it difficult to determine the proximity of vehicles behind me, especially in heavy traffic conditions. Honda's district service manager acknowledged the problem without even asking to see my car. He called it "characteristic" of the Accords and claimed they all have varying levels of distortion. However, Honda refused to offer a replacement window.

I was driving in heavy rain and my windshield wipers stopped working and I could not see a thing. I was lucky enough that other cars went around me on the highway. I called my local Honda dealership and they stated that their is not a recall on my vehicle and wanted to charge me an outrageous amount to replace the wiper motor. There is currently a recall on this for 2003 Honda Accords no. Q78 when the motor gets wet it stops working but for some reason it does not include my vehicle VIN number. Also I had a leak in my power steering and took it in for the recall and they said it was the pump and ended up charging me $500. 00 to fix but it is still leaking.

I was driving on I-75 near ruskin florida when the driver's side window imploded for no known reason. Florida highway patrol responded and could not see any evidence of the vehicle being struck by any foreign object. Glass ended up in several places including behind me (the driver and sole occupant), under the driver's seat, the far rear right seat and floorboard. I have photos. This happened around 6:40 p. M. , July 11, 2016. I have contacted Honda and they refused to do anything about it. . I feel that this is a severe safety issue and should be investigated. I have additional photos.

The Accord 2016 model has a very bad distortion in the back windshield - where one headlight/light will be reflected/shown as multiple. It is worse at night, and is very unsafe to drive with. The pictures reflect (to a minimum) how it appears. It is a huge distraction because there are lights everywhere when you look at your rearview mirror, and also is unsafe because it is not accurate as to where the exact light is coming from. It seems to be from the defroster lines, but I have not had this problem with any other cars I have owned before.

2016 Honda Accord ex - 100 miles driven. The partition/split in the driver side rear view mirror distorts the view which makes it very hard to see approaching vehicles. The mirror is not safe and should be replaced ASAP with a regular mirror. Not sure how Honda's engineers could develop such a dangerous mirror.

My son was driving his 2000 Honda Accord going on to 270 north all of a sudden his hood came popping up smashing his windshield and he was lucky he was in the lane closest to the brim. He could not see and was lucky no one was in front or at the side of him. The police officer that arrived asked us if this was a 2000-2002 Honda and my son said yes. He explained to us this is the 5th Honda vehicle in a month that this same thing occured. His daughters same car as my son did this a month ago. He recommended to me to email you and let you know.

The service manager at the dealer acknolwedged the distortion, but claimed it couldn't be fixed.

Partitioned side view mirrors on my sport model makes me more confused than ever. It defeats the purpose of these mirrors. Honda you make things better, how in the world you thought it makes side viewing easier/clearer. This is classic example of "improvement for the worse". Also, Honda used a cheap rearview mirror. Really did not expect this from Honda.

Steering wheel occludes the speedometer. Analog speedometer is in the middle of the dashboard and very large. Depending on the position of the steering wheel you loose at least 25 mph range (either on the low or high end of the spectrum). There is no digital readout which would be a simple fix to this issue as the low center part of the speedometer "ring" is always visible. Also, the driver's seat has a built in arch that does not fit ever body. It is not adjustable and (depending on height) pokes you in the mid-low back and doesn't let the upper back get support or relax into the seat. Result is very tight and spasmed back muscles. This gets worse over time.

This vehicle has no dashboard indicator to inform you when the washer fluid is low. This may sound like a small thing, however, the point when you run out without warning is when you are trying to clean the windshield. This happened to me on the highway this winter with a lot of salty spray coming off the road. The result was a streaky mess that I could barely see through. Fortunately, I carry a gallon of fluid with me so I stopped and filled it on the spot. According to the owners manual, the indicator is only found on canadian models.

The ¿driver¿s side expanded view¿ mirror is confusing to look at and not safe. A solution would be to replace this mirror with a regular mirror the driver can adjust. The camera view for the passenger mirror should have an option to turn it off. Night driving is difficult because of the vehicle lights. Otherwise this is a great car!.

Windshield washer freezes extremely easily, causing a horribly unsafe condition in winter driving. As an example, I have -30 degree washer fluid in the car, it is 25 degrees out this morning, car sat in the garage all night. After a 15 minute drive, washer fluid is completely frozen and will not come out at all. Tried several times. Almost caused an accident for me because I could not see with the salt on the road.
