2006 Honda Accord Owner Comments

Accord 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission

I purchased my 2006 Honda Accord in November 2005. I noticed a couple of weeks ago that I have a vibration in the braking system. I contacted the dealership and they had to take the rear rotors off and sand them down. I was perplexed because the vehicle only has 13,000 miles on it. According to Honda standards, that is not even a break in period. I have also had a problem with my alarm system the couple of months I had it, but that problem has been remedied. Since then, I noticed my headlights dim on occasion and I have been informed that this is a "normal characteristic" of the vehicle. It amazes me how sensitive this car is. I thought the situation with the brakes was important to log a complaint. This is my third Honda, and this is the very first time I had to take a Honda to the dealership for other than an usual service. I am not very happy about this. I am at the point where I am thinking about getting rid of the vehicle and it is not a year old yet.

I purchased a new 2006 Honda Accord in March 2006 and I experienced a thumping in the brake pedal and made an appointment with the dealer and returned the vehicle where they resurfaced the rotors. I was not happy with a new vehicle having resurfaced rotors so I had the dealer make a notation on my warranty order. Within a week I was experiencing the same problem. I contacted the dealer and they resurfaced them again and I was real unhappy because when I left the dealer the problem was still there. I contacted the service manager who agreed to have the rotors changed which supposedly they did. Well I am starting to experience the same type of thumping when exiting the highway but at a lesser level at this time. I do feel however that Honda may have a problem in this area and would hope they correct it soon as this is a safety issue. I have owned Honda's since 1975 and have never experienced the amount of problem I have had with this Honda as I have on all my other Honda's combined.

I purchased a new 2006 Accord and took delivery on March 29, 2006 from clinton Honda, clinton, NJ. Within one day after delivery I noticed a thumping sound and vibration from the front of the car during hard braking. I made a service appointment at the earliest available date at the dealership. On Friday, April 7, 2006 the service manager, Mr. William wilson, informed me that the front brake rotors were slightly warped and glazed and that Honda would resurface the rotors under warranty. Mr. Wilson informed me that it is Honda policy to resurface brake rotors once under warranty. I asked Honda to replace the front rotors but they have refused. Brand new rotors should not be warped and glazed, this is a serious safety hazard. Honda should not be allowed to sell such a defective car.
