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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. Notes: The 2010 Honda Accord has a solid reputation (so far), with one very significant flaw: uncomfortable seats.

Owners have consistently reported uncomfortable seats with the entire 8th generation (2008-2012) of Honda Accords. Complaints range from back pain to leg circulation problems due to bad lumbar support, cushioning, & seat angle. Complaints aren't limited to only a certain body type -- the seat comfort problems are from a wide spectrum of owner height & weight.

The common theme we hear is "we never noticed this during the test drive." Unfortunately for unwary buyers, the seat pain is noticeable after 15-20 minutes.


definitely annoying

My wheel bearings were replaced under warrant at 50,000 miles. Two years later, both of my wheel bearings are bad again. It appears there are other incidents of wheel bearings on 2010 Honda Accord going bad under 100,000 miles. I believe this is a safety issue and concerned that this problem could be wide spread.

Three months after I bought the Honda, the TPMS light came on, and when I called the service dept. At the dealership where I bought it, they told me it was the change in temperature and I should just "drive around the block" until it goes out. It did go out, but seven months later the TPMS light came on again. I again called the dealership and they said to bring it in, and it would be fixed at no charge. However, when I brought it in, I was told I'd have to pay $240 because the sensor was bad. Having researched the issue, I see there have been many complaints about this sensor problem, that Honda knows about it, that they lied to me about "driving around the block." Then they lied again, telling me they would fix it at no charge.

On 3/18/15 I took our 2010 Honda Accord with 28,037 miles to Suburban Honda in farmington hills, mi for a oil change, the service manager notified me that the driver side rear pads have worn out to the point of wearing out the rotor beyond turning to repair, and I need a new caliper that as we know must be replaced in pairs. His price for repairs was $1027.60 + tax =$1089.26 I took the vehicle to my neighborhood auto repair facility and had all new pads, rotors and calipers replaced for $650.04 this costly expense at this low mileage of a brand new vehicle is completely unacceptable, how many other trusting customers bought this vehicle and had the same or similar rear brake fail as well. At the least Honda should reimburse us for all of the repairs. At 28,049 miles both front tires had to be replaced do to premature ware

In November, I purchased 4 new Continental extremecontact dws for my car. In March, during pothole season, I quickly learned that these new tires have soft sidewalls and easily develop sidewall bubbles. I had to replace two of the tires during this time period. I've never - in my 15 years of driving - had to replace a tire due to a sidewall bubble. Curious, I typed "Continental dws sidewall bubble" into google and found online forums loaded with folks complaining of the same issue. It's pretty clear based on my own experience, and online reports from others, that the Continental dws tires have weaker than usual sidewalls, and develop bubbles at a much higher rate than other tires. After spending so much on tires within a six month period, I asked Continental to replace just one of the tires under warranty (the tire shop had mercy and replaced one for free!). Continental's initial warranty includes road hazard protection for the first 2/10ths of wear, which this tire easily fell under. After meeting all of Continental's requirements for the warranty information, they have stopped responding to my customer service inquiries. They said it would take three weeks to receive a check. It's been three months. Please open an investigation into the sidewall issues of these tires. It is clearly a known issue, and Continental refuses to take responsibility - even when they are supposed to be covered under warranty! my next complaint will be filed with the ftc for false warranty claims, since they refuse to honor the warranty under the rules they developed; rules that I met. Consider this filed complaint my official notice to Continental. If I die due to a tire defect, this notice is placed in a file for my lawyer.

Accord 4-cyl

  • 20,000 miles
At 20,000 miles the vehicle had a failed wheel bearing (noise/vibration), passenger-side front. Driver-side front wheel bearing failed at 34,000 miles. Dealer replaced the hub/bearing assemblies under warranty. This is a defect, as the bearings should not fail at such a low mileage. How long will the replacement bearings last ?

  • 20,980 miles
Rear wheel bearing failure at freeway speed (manifested by grinding noise and burnt smell) and premature and uneven wear on rear brake pads. (1) dealer service at pacific Honda in san diego ca misdiagnosed the failed bearing as the "often" encountered brake pads "issue" with "2010 Honda Accord". $220 brake job later, grinding noise is still present. Shaft was discolored due to heat but dealer claims "it's ok".
