problem #5

Jun 142015

Accord EX-L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles

At first, the driver's side window would go down when trying to close it, but it eventually would go back up. Then today, while trying to close the window again, it went all the way down and will not go back up. I did see that there was a class action lawsuit for this problem that includes the 2008 Honda Accords, but when I called the local Honda dealership, their service department said that it wasn't part of a recall.

Am taking the car in tomorrow and will be without a car for the entire day, but since the window is open completely and I live in the city and park on the street, it's a huge problem to have the window wide open.

Accord EXL 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 82,000 miles

I leave my car in municipal parking every day and on 3 or 4 occasions over the past 2 years, I have found my windows and moonroof open when I am ready to leave the area for the day. They were open far enough for anyone to reach in, unlock the doors, or steal anything that happened to be sitting inside.

Accord EX 3.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36,000 miles

I parked my car at the supermarket and when I returned I found all four windows were down and the moonroof was open. This has happened twice in the last year. Could this be caused by something I've inadvertently done or is it a defect in the system. The Honda service dept. has never heard of this.
