problem #2

Jul 292009


  • 200 miles
2009 Honda Accord- the car had 200 miles on it and the cvb boot with all the brake fluid broke making the car unsafe to drive. Had to argue to dealer to get it fixed. The car now has 11,900 miles and the brakes squeal, took to the dealer informed half of the rear brakes are gone and that the squealing canbe from the weather. This was suppose to be a new car. There is a class action suit against Honda due to the brakes wearing out prematurely but the consumer has to pay first to have them repaired. Someone needs to look into the safety of Honda Accord braking system for 2008 and 2009 models.

problem #1

Jan 132010


  • 300 miles
Brakes making a noise, turned rotors and replaced pads, problem returned in Jan.10, rotors turned again, Honda said faulty pads was the clause replaced once more, call had less then 4,000 miles on it first time, approx.7000 second, I think rotors should not be milled over once and then rotors replaced, they will not hear of that. Strange whine coming from bottom right side of transmission or engine, Honda claimed service bulletin call for oil pump to be replaced, which they change, no change in the sound plus now there is a leak from where they made repair.
