Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Accord 6-cyl

  • 53,000 miles


I was pulling into a parking space in front of my apartment building and slowing down to park. My foot was on the brake slowing the car down to a complete stop when suddenly the car accelerated on it's own as if possessed. The car jumped over the curb of the parking space and smashed into the brick wall of my apartment building causing extensive damage to the front of my car and breaking the brick wall and window of the building. I know for a fact that my foot was on the brake and not on the gas pedal. This is clearly an issue with the vehicle. We have reported the issue to Honda usa and they will provide further instructions after the vehicle is repaired.

The contact owns a 2007 Honda Accord. While driving approximately 65 mph, the RPM reading elevated and the vehicle decelerated independently. The contact stated that the failure would recur intermittently. The vehicle was later taken to an independent mechanic who advised that the transmission needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 120,000.

I have a 2007 Honda Accord V6 inside the door it says it was manufacture on Aug 2006 and I bought it that year in September. What it happening is the transmission is doing all the signs of the 2003-2006 recalls of the transmission. The high pitch noise and it wont go into 3rd gear. I also sometimes drop right in to the first gear. I have since stop driving it. I was on the freeway in the carpool lane during commute time with my children when it decided to go out of gear. It is at 90000 miles right now and I have done all the maintenance on it and it is just went out of commission. I called Honda and they told me that there is no recalls for the 2007. I think they need to investigate this to see if some of the 07 Accord fall under the recall list. I paid 40000 for this vehicle and still have 6 payments left on it. Pleased do something about this. I am single parent and have no transportation.

Transmission slippage was first noticed when weather turned cooler or car was cold, not so much at first, then all the time. Torque converter was replaced by dealership.

While parking my car in my garage, I had put it in park and took my foot of the brake pedal, my 2007 Honda Accord sedan lunged forward hitting my drywall, solar water heater, washer and dryer then it jumped back and stopped. I was so stunned as I didn't know what was happening here. Instantly the car decided to go in reverse at an accelerated rate down the hill of my driveway hitting the concrete side of my neighbor's garage, their car and bounced forward up the hill to hit my house again and stopped at the crest of the hill. The car is totaled. State farm insurance hired an investigator sea that decided that there are no deficiencies yet they failed to look at the transmission, electronic control module, powertrain only reviewed the brakes, tires, throttle. Can you help me. After reviewing an article of the Toyota and how they and other manufacturers have gone to a new electronic throttle control module which has resulted in the same type of problem, I accelerated as my foot was on the brake the whole time and the shift gear was in park. This needs to be investigated further. Possible new recall. There are several other incidents listed on the Honda malfunctions complaint page under 2007 Honda Accord with the same type of problems, cars being totaled and what recourse do we have as consumers? obviously state farm isn't going to pursue it with Honda just charge to me as an accident and probably drop me and raise my rates sky high. I need help on how to pursue this further. $10,000 damage to my house, car totaled @ $18,000+, and $19,000+ damage to my neighbor's house. Luckily no children were out and no deaths occurred as a result of this. The only air bag that deployed were the side curtains not the driver's side either.

Vehicle: 2007 Honda Accord ex - 6 cylinder problem: Transmission failure with less then 5K miles, my Accord began to surge when driving. A service light came on and I took the vehicle to the dealership. The transmission had failed and Honda replaced it with a rebuilt transmission even though the dealer told me initially it was a new transmission. The vehicle now has 17K miles and I still have problems with the transmission. When slowing for a red light the vehicle will down shift suddenly causing the vehicle to lurch. I am not confidant in Honda.

Backing into my parking spot at work I inadvertently turned the engine off while the car was in reverse. I removed my foot from the brake and the car rolled forward, across the driveway. I was told, by the dealer and american Honda, that this was normal - that the car goes into "neutral" when the ignition is off and I should put the car in park (duh!). this seems a serious safety risk should a child or anyone put a car (I tested this with my 2006 Volvo S60, as well) in gear, it will not gear-lock.

When pressing on the gas pedal, car hesitates and then will surge or lunge and then accelerate. Also when applying a little pressure to the brake to slow the car down, the car will automatically apply more brake and the car will lunge forward to an abrupt stop.

  • Automatic transmission

Bought 2007 Honda Accord hybrid in Oct, 07. Reported that the car makes clunk noises when shifting sometimes and vibrates the entire when pulling off slowly as it automatically shifts into gear. The car also hesitates when pressing gas to speed up which nearly caused me to get rear ended by another car who had to hit brakes to stop from hitting me. Have reported this problem several times in which the last time the engineer was contacting and it was stated that this is normal operation of the car and nothing could be done to prevent. Complaints started at 1000 miles and car now has 600 miles. Have voiced complaint with dealership and Honda of America and to date nothing has been done about the issue. It is crazy to spend this much money on a car that am being told that vibrations and clunking noises are normal. This is truly a matter of the customer being treated unfairly. Additionally Honda said they would take the car in as trade and give me $23,000 for the car when blue book says it is work close to $26,000.. $3000 below blue book value and yet there is nothing wrong with the car.
