Tamara recall - sometimes but not all there is hesitation when making left hand turns after stopping at a traffic light. Occasionally this will happen with right hand turns but not as often. I had coggin Honda in St augustine check the problem out but they could not determine there was a problem with the car but thought it was a driver error.

My Honda Accord 2017 4 cyn all of dash board lights lit up, the steering wheel partially locked while I was driving going 55 mph. I pulled over and couldn't cut the car off with my start button. After about 5 minutes I was able to finally cut it cut off. Then it would not start at all. Then after another 5 minutes it started and I went straight to the car dealership January 2019. About seven months earlier, my car would start at all. I went to the dealership and they couldn't find anything wrong. They told me only thing it might be was the battery, I bought a battery and my car was only 11 months old. Recently, February 2019, now my battery is 7 months old, my car wouldn't start again. They can't find anything wrong with my car, but I am having issues. There have been times when I start my car and the dash lights do not come on and I hold the button on the dash and the system reboot and the dash light come on. My car is at the dealership and now it is starting, but the said everything is registering that nothing is wrong. I have an huge issue because I can't be strained in this cold winter weather and my car not starting. This is unsafe because I was in motion less than a month ago on the highway going 55 mph and my car froze in motion. Cjb February 2019

Over the last several days the car would not start without requiring a jump for the battery. Then it would run, but once the car was off and had to be restarted it would require another jump. Had the battery tested and brought the car to dealership and they state nothing is wrong with the vehicle. (it started there no problem). It ran fine for the next few days, but currently its parked and won't start. The only lights that displayed was the eps which turned off shortly after the car started.

The car caught on fire by itself, a car only with 13,000 miles and 1 year of usage that means almost brand new car. I drove 9 miles aprox. From home to my work location. When I arrive and park the car before going upstairs, I saw the car blowing unusual smoke from the engine compartment, I opened the hood and I saw the fire was coming between the engine and the radiator. I call the 911 and when they arrived they tried to use a fire extinguisher but the fire started getting out of control, forcing them to use the water hose to stop the fire. Honda is not taking care of this safety concern and no body knows what happened

The tires that came with the car are not suitable for driving in winter conditions. The tread pattern is designed for dry roads. There are no channels for accumulating slush, snow, etc. To exit the tread to the sides. This causes accumulation in the tread and causes hydroplaning and complete loss of traction. Last winter I almost lost total control of this car while on the expressway coming North from O'hare on I94 in slush. I tried asking the kenosha, Wisconsin dealership to put all season radials on the car and they refused, saying if I wanted to pay for different tires I could do that. Selling or leasing a vehicle in a specific geographical area should include tires that are suited for said area. This car is dangerous to drive in snow or any slippery conditions due to the tires.

Smells like fish when turning on the heat & A/C. the tires are dry rotted. This car is not brand new and must have come from an area where there was flooding. Lithia Honda in medford Oregon selling cars that are really totaled out cars from floods or hurricane prone areas. This is a danger, as dry rot blow out tires may cause series accidents. Out police officers are also driving on these tires! dry rot tires.

So there are a few issues with my 2017 Honda Accord sport first one is the tire whooshing sound it makes I know I have seen many people complain about the same thing and I have took it to the dealer but they are unable to do anything until a recall is made very frustrating that I have to wait until a recall is made to get this problem fixed second issue my tpm keeps coming on I just took it for an oil change and had the tire pressure checked and adjusted and barley a day later it comes back on the this has been going on for the last 3 months I checked the tires they are in really good condition lots of life on them and same response from the dealer can't do anything super frustrating third issue is that when it is hot outside and the inside of my car gets hot my screen shuts off I am talking this one in to the dealer to leave it hopefully they can get it fixed and don't give me the same answer as I got for all my other issues

When car is running for an hour or more and then stationary (outside in the driveway) with the cabin air on, the smell of gasoline is coming into the cabin and is very noticeable. I took my baby daughter out for a drive to get her to fall asleep and when I reached home I usually sit with her in the car while it runs, but the smell was so strong that I had to wake her and remove her from the car. Brought the car to the dealer today (01/29/18) who noted no gas leaks and stated that gas gap was not as tight as it could be, but it seems improbable that it would cause that much of a smell in the cabin. Seeing similar complaints for Honda CR-V and feel like the dealer could do more exploration, but didn't so they could not do further exploration of the issue. They claimed they could not smell the gasoline but something else and said it was "off gassing of the internal engine compartment chemicals". both my husband and I could smell gasoline.

The vehicle I owned is 2017 Honda Accord touring. Problem I discovered was center console silver stripe (passenger side) pop up. I went to dealership have it fixed. The problem occurs every month, and I am getting tried to fix it every month. The silver stripe piece is sharp, could possibly cut your finger or skin. I owned the vehicle for almost a year, like new, with less than 3K miles on it.

There is a loud wind noise on the driver's side of the car. It was noticeable when I drove on the highway above 60 mph. I had it evaluated by the Honda care center and they replaced the window strip; however, once I accelerate past 40 mph it is even more pronounced tjan before. I returned to the service center and I was told that it was not fixable as it is in the design of the car. It seems highly unlikely to me that engineers would allow a car on the road with known "wind issues" or a design flaw. This is my fourth Honda Accord and never has this been an issue.

I'm not sure but I think it's the regenerative brakes. They came on so hard when I let off the gas. I was almost rear ended and the guy behind me was pissed off. I was on the 15 fwy going about 70 when I let off the gas and the brakes slammed on. And on cost hwy going about 30 mph let off the gas and the brakes slammed on.

My 2017 Honda Accord (V-6) had no electrical power on 9-17-2017. There were 800+ miles on the car. The car's electrical system was dead; no sign of electrical power at all. The car was towed (at Honda's expense) to a dealer, not the dealer where I purchased the car. The dealer "cleared battery codes" and then could find notheing wrong with the car. I have not experienced any problems since with the car which now has 1,134 miles on

When first drove new car off lot (0 miles) 9/2016 and many times over several months later to (7K mi) 8/2017, car tire pressure light continues to come on while driving in city and highway traffic. Dealer claims tires not part of car warranty. Replaced tire, light still comes on. Distracting and annoying...don't know if tires properly inflated. Uncomfortable seating and head rest (driver's seat).
