I bought my 2009 Honda Accord LX on December 30, 2008. Less than a month after that, my brakes started making a horrific squeaking sound every time I applied pressure to them. It does not matter if I tap them lightly or I push down hard; the brakes still make terrible noises. I took my car in to the Honda dealership twice for an oil change and once for the brake sounds. All three times, I asked the associates to check the brakes. Each time, they said the brakes were adjusted (I.e. sanded) and that the noise should cease. On the my trip, I told them whatever they were doing wasn't working. It was then I was told that Honda Accord seem to have a brake issue, but Honda is aware and working on a solution. As of last week, my car is not only making squeaking noises when I brake, it is also making a high-pitched grinding sound that is audible over music playing on a low volume. The noise occurs every day, just like the brakes' noise happens daily. This should not have happened to a car that was less than a month old and is now less than a year old. I have a little over 25,000 miles on the car and feel embarrassed to have to drive a car that looks so nice but sounds so horrible. I fear going long distances because I'm worried my brakes may not stop me in time. Honda needs to recall the brakes and replace them now. Honda owners simply do not deserve this.
