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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
