I bought this car in December 2015. Now in November 2016 my car started smoking under the hood. Took it to dealership and discovered recall. Why wasn't this fixed before flagstaff Nissan sold this car to me"?? I specifially asked about recalls and I was told there were none!! this recall was done in 2012 so why couldn't they figure that out before selling it???"

Compliance bushing tearing. I see this all over the internet as a common occurrence for Honda Accord for more than 10 years. This is a safety problem that should be investigated for recall.

Took care in for maintenance. Was told compliance bushing is wearing and should be replaced soon. I'm finding this item cost about $20. And several hundreds to fix due to labor. Looking at all the blogs, this particular item has upset many because of the design and looks to be a cash cow for the dealerships. If I wee to purchase all bushings for the lower control arm (3 each side) the total in parts would be $89. But to have the dealership to replace just one busing would be over $500. The lower control arm has to be removed to replace just the one bushing. To purchase the lower control arm which includes the 3 bushings, is just over $300 per side. Plus reading all the blogs, the compliance bushing has a tendency to wear quickly. Honda should fix at no cost to the owner.

My issue relates to the power steering system. This is something that developed over time, worsened, I paid boatloads of money over time, only to have it reoccur over & over. I've actually experienced other issues but since this is a safety issue, and I've paid good money to have repaired on a few occasions, only to be back at square one today barely able to steer the car I've decided to stick to this alone. This issue is probably as much an issue with defective power steering as it is with Honda not addressing my problem. In other words since from around 50,000 thru today this has been an ongoing problem which they only suggested to do one service, the problem temp would go away, only to reappear shortly thereafter dragging me back in all over again. High-pressure hose @ $58,000, almost immediately thereafter power steering pump that I waited till 72,000 to pay for, almost immediately thereafter the rack & pinion which I put off till 93,000 due to the cost and how much all of the other problems were costing me. Today the car has 104,000. I had all work done by Honda up to 85,000, but have tried to save money and have had someone else do the rack & pinion and a few other costly items since. I went back to Honda today for their opinion - net result - all of the above items have a bad leak and need to be done all over again - $2400 cost! the other thing I want to add is the recall on Honda Accord "high pressure power steering hose" - of course, the recall was not until after I'd already paid for the service - my car's hose went bad & needed to be replaced for the same reason as which all of the other Honda were under recall for (the heat of the engine caused it to melt). When I heard about the recall I anticipated receiving a letter in the mail but never did - the reason was that the recall for the hose was for many other model years not including 2007 (my car year).

I had my vehicle serviced at Honda of spring dealership in Texas. They did a power steering flush. After they were done, they told me my high pressure power steering hose was leaking and had to be replaced. It was not leaking before I had the vehicle serviced. They wanted over $600 to replace the hose. I believe the hose was defective and the flush finished it off. The dealership told me the hose was not recalled for my vehicle VIN number. I can't afford to pay that much for a hose and the car might catch on fire if the hose is not replaced. If it does, I am suing Honda for defective high pressure power steering hose damages.
