The 2007 Honda Accord also listed as "vehicle" was traveling South bound on anson rd near 50th St, near wellington, ks. Vehicle struck mid-center of a extended SUV that pulled out from a farm access road. Vehicle was traveling at approximately 55mph, with cruise control set. Driver applied breaks to try to stop, but failed to stop in time to avoid collision. Vehicle failed to deploy airbags. Safety restraint did not fail at time of impact, but failed to resend once unhooked from driver. Impact by vehicle was primarily mid-center, and vehicle was traveling well above the 30mph at time of impact which should have released the safety devices to protect the driver.

2007 Honda Accord ex-L (in excellent condition) was pulled into a parking space and stopped. When driver transitioned the gearshift from drive to park, the car suddenly accelerated, jumped the curb, crossed a (soggy) grassy median of about 10 feet, and crashed into a second (parked) car with enough velocity to push the second car into a third (parked) car. All efforts to stop the Honda in its acceleration were unsuccessful. The car was taken to the dealership from which it had been purchased new and serviced regularly. After three months of haggling, the dealership repurchased the car; Honda, however, refused to acknowledge any problem with the car.

While making a turn onto a highway, our Honda Accord had complete and catastrophic failure of the front ball joint with total loss of steering. Front axle literally fell onto the roadway and front left tire was perpendicular to the car body and kept us from bottoming out. Thankfully no others cars in immediate area and we were not hit by another vehicle. We were also driving slowly so no injuries even though car was not able to be controlled. Called Honda America and they said this is a unique problem and that this has never been an issue with their cars. However many, many instances documented on Honda forums on the web.

[xxx] of apollo casualty company insurance as subrogee of [xxx], our insured says we were driving West on stearns road when we noticed a plastic/rubber smell coming from the dashboard. About 30 seconds later we noticed smoke coming from the passenger side dash. At which point we pulled over and exited the vehicle. I walked over to the passenger side to check on the smoke and immediately noticed flames from up under the dash. We backed away from the vehicle and within two minutes the car was engulfed in flames.

The driver and passenger door rattle noise. I had taken the car to the Honda authorized service center when the car was in warranty and they said it?S a lubrication issue. Now I have been taking the car to the Honda authorized service center more than 5 times and they were not able to fix it yet. The say they had done some taping etc, but after a day or so, it the same noise again especially on bumpy roads and it gets annoying most of the times.

The trunk door won't stay open on a low slope surface or under slight wind on a flat surface. Door lock hit the head on multiple family members head causing bruises on head and headaches for months. I believe the root cause is that the trunk door spring is no strong enough to hold the door under normal use. Report the problem to Honda in new vehicle survey in 2007, but no response from Honda. File a complaint to Honda on Sept. 2011. Honda customer service denied the problem.
