#1 - Wiring problem of the 2012 Honda Accord
The vehicle was a 2012 Honda Accord. The VIN of this vehicle was 1HGCP2F30C_. Abs lights on purchase after 5 months. I purchase my car on 12/30/11. On 30/5/12 I saw the lights on, I dropped my car for 1 day at boardwalk Honda service. Next day, when I went to take my car the manager told me that rodents had eaten the wiring. The place where I park my car, there were three other cars also parked everyday. They never have such kind of problem. I think because of their car is old and my car is new so rodents like to eat new wires not a old wires. The manger told me that you have to pay for this and it will be more than $1000. I am completely disagree, why should I pay. Still its passed 5 months. I am looking forward to fix this problem by Honda with free of charge. This issue happened on Fri., Jun. 1, 2012.

#2 - Wiring problem of the 2005 Honda Accord
The vehicle is a 2005 Honda Accord. My air bag light was lit,I took it to Honda they re-set something, 5 minutes later as I was leaving it lit up again. Took it back they said they had to do diagnostics, ordered a wiring harness,installed that. I drove to florida and back 1300 miles round trip and the light is back on meaning my bags will not deploy. I have had a very difficult time getting this addressed. Honda (apple tree in fletcher , nc) had my car from tue-sat and I had to rent a car due to their negligence. Now I have to drive back over there 1 1/2 hour drive one way and see what is going on. I noticed there have been similar issues, but that my VIN was not covered. Please advise. I am still driving an unsafe car and have spent countless hours going back and forth and paying for a rental car. This wiring issue occurred Dec. 1, 2011.

#3 - Wiring problem of the 2010 Honda Accord
The vehicle involved is a 2010 Honda Accord. In recent, companies have changed how they make the insulation for cables attached to a car's engine. The soy products now used to create the wire insulation concerns me a great deal. This weekend my wife was driving our car, a 2010 Honda Accord, and while on the road the car started to shake and stutter violently, and would not accelerate. This could have ultimately caused an accident and harmed her and other people. After having our car towed to the dealership, there was evidence that a rodent of some type had chewed on the cables. Not only did this make the car unstable to drive on the road, but there was a threat of electrical fire because the wire's insulation was chewed away by a small animal that was attracted to the soy-based food source in the wires. Adding the soy to the wires can cause problems including unreliability, fires, and possibly even death. I donâ€™t take this lightly. Automobile makers are using the soy material because it is less expensive for them. Overall, it costs consumers/insurance companies much more when repairs are needed because of this problem. Not only is this dishonest of auto makers, but these types of shortcuts are illegal as well. Please require manufacturers to make wiring insulation out of non-soy-based products to ensure the safety of my family along with yours. Thanks. This wiring problem happened on 02/24/2010.

#9 - Wiring problem of the 2003 Honda Accord
The VIN of this Accord is JHMCM566X3_. The wiring harness on my Honda Accord recently had various places where rodent(s) have chewed on it that resulted in engine problems. The same thing happened two times in 2007 on a Chrysler pacifica. In researching online, it appears that this is a much larger problem than I would have thought, with hundreds if not thousands of incidents, primarily on newer vehicles. Some of the posts have indicated that several manufacturers are using a soy based wiring harness material covering the actual wires. This seems to be attracting all sorts of rodents including mice, rats, squirrels, and even rabbits. If this problem is as big as it appears, this well may be costing consumers millions of dollars per year!. The failure date was Monday, September 1, 2008.
