Rear brakes. There are many complaints on wear of Honda brakes. Mine (front and rear) were replaced same day, at 40,200 mi. At 72,700, the rear brakes needed replacement with just 3 % life left or only 32,500 miles. This is nearly half life. The front brakes my repair shop notes has at least 30% more life.

While parking my 2007 Honda Accord in a residential area, I put it into reverse with my foot on the brake. The car suddenly accelerated on its own, and the brakes failed, causing the vehicle to crash into a parked car with enough force to move it about 3 feet, pushing it up over the curb and onto the sidewalk. A second parked vehicle was also damaged. With my foot still on the brake, I shifted into drive, and the vehicle suddenly accelerated forward at an alarming rate of speed for about one/tenth mile, where I was finally able to get the car to stop. The rear damage on my car was so extensive that the car was deemed a total loss by my insurance company. A police report was filed. Mileage on the vehicle was approximately 33,300 miles. I had kept this car regularly maintained. Because of this very serious safety issue, I will never purchase another Honda....updated 12/03/15

My son was driving my 2007 Honda Accord SE on July 30, 2015. He crossed the parking lot of a college campus. As he was turning into another parking section the brakes failed and the power steering locked and failed and lost control hitting a pole. I'm devastated that something like this would happen. I've messaged Honda with this information along with pictures. I've submitted the VIN, mileage, and pictures as they requested. I'm hoping Honda looks into this matter. I've always maintained my car and there is no reason for multiple failures. I'm looking for my car to be replaced.

Just bought my Accord in September 2013 with 105K miles on it.when I test drove the vehicle I noticed that the brakes were sticky.when I came to a complete stop then when I accelerated it took a second or two for the brakes to release then accelerate again. They told me that they had just replaced the brakes and that's the reason why that it was doing that.so within a month later I brought it in cause the problem never went away. They fixed the problem and just put brake fluid and bleed the brakes.the car ran a little better and the brakes weren't sticking as much.two months later I had to replace the brake pads.brakes were still sticky.3 months later I had to replace them again.then I noticed that when I would due over 60 mph that when I would press the brakes that the car would shake and pull to the left.I then got a aliment and still the car would shake when I would accelerate and brake.I then replaced all four rotors.problem stopped.two months later the cars left lower control arm was giving out.had to replace both right and left side.one month later I hear the brakes making a loud grinding noise.I had to replace the pads again.I find that every 2 to 3 months I have to replace my brakes. All this money being spent is not fair.Honda needs to recall these brake systems.my airbag light and engine light keeps coming on and off.also my stereo light goes off and on.help me please.

Unexpected acceleration with engine stuck at full throttle.. conditions at the time: Snow on road; large snow banks at sides of road.. I had backed out of my driveway in order to turn my car around so as to point front-out.I then started to back down the driveway.the car got stuck against a pile of snow part way into the driveway (we just had a series of large snowstorms, but the night was clear).I placed the transmission in "┐┐drive"┐Ł and attempted to exit the driveway.a wheel stated to spin (I believe it was the right front drivewheel), so I gunned the engine.the car got free, heading toward the snow bank on the side of the road opposite the driveway.I took my foot off the gas and onto the brake, applying force on the brake.the engine remained in full throttle despite my having moved my foot off the gas and onto the brake and my applying force to the brake..the car had propelled itself into the snow bank on the opposite side of the road.the engine remained in full throttle. I could feel the pulsation of the ABS system on the brake pedal under my foot as I continued to try to brake.I finally turned off the ignition. The engine stopped. I placed the transmission into "park".I then turned the ignition back on and started the engine with my foot still on the brake, and immediately the engine was again in full throttle, although in "park"┐Ł -- so there was no movement of the vehicle.I turned off the ignition again.I turned the ignition back on. This time the idle was normal..I was able to back the car back into the driveway.

While at 30 mph...tried to stop at TL, applied brakes even with 3-4 car distance from car in front of me. Car didn't stop or reduce the speed. Applied brakes again"car exhilarated to higher seed. Didn't stop?it exhilarated seep and hit on the back side of car in front of my car. I don?T expect to happen like this at all, eve with sound mind and driving carefully on road side. I this this is unacceptable for manufacturer like ?Honda" company or from any other company.

I recently had purchased a 2007 Honda Accord SE from the Honda dealer on 12/20/2012. March of 2013 I was having some problems with my brakes, so I thought. I took it to the Honda dealer. They stated the caliper was sticking on the left rear side and that was the sound that I was hearing. So I had to have my caliper replaced and my brakes. So it is now August 2013, the same caliper is sticking again. But of course it is out of warranty to have it replaced again.. there has to be something wrong with this picture for the same exact problem in a little more a years time.

In very cold weather the car does not have brakes. The dealership told me that this a defect with this car. Honda is aware of the problem but has not done a recall. I am the second owner of the car. The previous owner was in AZ, therefore would not have had a problem. I am very fortunate that I did not have an accident. The dealership stated that the brake valve had to be replaced in all the 2007 Honda Accord hybrids. I think that this should be investigated. ## VIN failed ##

As driving on the highway around 50mph, I applied brakes and it almost had no stopping power. Later that day I checked it with the dealer and got brake pads and brake rotors changed. Not even after two months the braking power has faded. Please get this issue fixed as it is causing excessive braking problems which can cause an accident and damages.

When backing out of our downwardly-sloped home driveway, the vacuum assist for the brakes fades or doesn't work at all. Brakes work fine going forward. This is a potential safety issue if someone were walking on the sidewalk behind the backing up car, because once the vacuum assist fails, it is very difficult to press the brake pedal hard enough to stop the car in reverse. The above-described event occurs often.

While braking the steering wheel began to shake. Took to the dealer who insisted a pebble or something must have gotten between so they wont replace pads for free. This problem has continued since and I keep paying their prices which is really affecting my life.
