Rear disc brake failure on 2007 Honda Accord SE. No warning from wear indicators that a problem existed. The car was inspected just 1000 miles before and pads and rotors were good. Rotated tires two weeks before the failure occurred and the rotors and pads were fine. Noticed a grinding sound from the rear right side and investigated. The pads were gone and ate deep into the rotor. Car had 23,949 miles on it and Honda refused to do anything other than replace at my cost.

07 Honda Accord rear brake pad pins become rusted and will not let the rear brake pads release, causing them to be applied all of the time, on one pad on each side, causing excessive wear and damage to the brake pads and brake rotors. This car has 45000 miles on it and I had to replace the rear pads and rotors on this car. The sides that stuck on my car were the ones without the wear indicators. My wife heard a grinding noise and then I checked out the rear brake system and found the problem. A salesman at advance auto told me to check these pins, because he had seen this problem several times. I think Honda needs to step forward and make this problem known to the public, several have complained on internet web sites about this problem on 07 models, but there seems to be many more complaints coming in on the 08 Accord models.

Honda Accord 2007, brakes slips a lot, car vibrates, car doesn't stop as suppose to when properly depressing the brake pedal, had to put the tranny to lowest gear step by step in order to really slow down and stop. I had it check and repaired by ace tire, result of check up was, original equipment front brake pads caved in the front rotors due to low grade brake rotors and brake pads.

I'm having anti-lock brake problems on a Honda Accord 2007 SE. The problem is that in snow the brakes are taking a ridiculous amount of time to stop. I have driven in snow for decades and it feels like it takes twice as long to stop with Honda's antilock brakes compared to conventional brakes. I am referring to city driving in situations where I'm only going 25 mph or less and the brakes stop poorly.

I'd like to report an issue with my 07 Honda Accord brakes with 32,642 miles. After a few miles of freeway driving (no stop and go) all 4 rotors are very hot. Any rotor is too hot to touch, and in fact, would blister your finger. They are so hot that they sometimes smell of burnt brake material. These brake rotors are excessively hot without virtually any usage of the brakes. This is not a normal condition for any car. I do not use my brakes excessively, drive almost exclusively freeways, and got over 100,000 mile on my previous Honda's rear brakes. I took my car to the local Honda dealer for service under warranty. When I pulled in to the service area the service person came right out. I asked him to verify that the rotors were extremely hot. He did so. The reason I had asked the service person to verify the hot rotors was so that he could acknowledge the fact that the rotors were indeed hot before the car had a chance to cool down. After 20 minutes or so the service technician had the opportunity to check the brakes. He said that there were no hot spots on the rotors and there was no problem. Of course the rotors were not hot after cooling down for 20 minutes. The service person also told me that the rear pads were close to needing replacement. Needing to replace the rear pads after 33,000 mile of freeway driving is premature pad wear. The only reason for premature pad wear on my brakes after 33,000 miles is dragging brake pads. Because the brakes are dragging all the time is the reason that the rotors are excessively hot and the reason that the pads are prematurely worn. This is not a normal condition for any car. Brake rotors being excessively hot is a dangerous condition. Rotors that are excessively hot all the time will lead to premature brake fade in conditions where the brakes would be used a lot, like driving downhill mountain grades. This is a definite safety issue.

I am concerned that Honda has used substandard brake rotors and faulty airbag equipment on some of their models. I owned a 2007 Honda Accord LX that required replacement of airbag components within two years of purchase(the car was new at purchase in 2007). It also developed faulty braking in the form of vibration and excessive stopping distances within 18 months of purchase--this was under mild driving conditions. I have been told by Honda that it is common for their brake rotors to need turning within two years of service, which, based on my experience with vehicles, would constitutes a marginally sound brake rotor. Substandard braking equipment coupled with questionable airbag components could lead to catastrophic consequences in the event of an incursion or near-incursion.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13,000 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Honda Accord. While driving 40 mph, the contact rear ended another vehicle. The vehicle was driven to the dealer. The contact stated that when he depressed the brake pedal, it held for a moment and then began to vibrate. He applied more pressure to the pedal, but it would not hold. The failure mileage was 13,000. Updated 10/16/08. Updated 10/20/08.

Accord 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 800 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Honda Accord. The contact stated that on three separate occasions, while driving approximately 50 mph, the brakes locked when the pedal was depressed. The vehicle failed to accelerate. The vehicle was taken to the dealer three times. The first time, they replaced the master cylinder, 4 rotors, and 4 brake pads. The second time, they replaced the brake booster, 4 pads, and 4 rotors. The third time, the dealer stated that they could not duplicate the failure. They declared that the vehicle was operating normally. The current mileage was 5,000 and failure mileage was 800.

The brakes on my new 2007 Honda grab 50% of the time. Especially dangerous after the car is washed. They are too sensitive, and I'm never sure what pressure to use to stop safely. The blind spot on the right rear side of car is unsafe. Fault is in the design of the car and the rear view mirror is not large enough and the passenger's head/head rest blocks the driver's vision.
