Notes: The 2010 Honda Accord has a solid reputation (so far), with one very significant flaw: uncomfortable seats.

Owners have consistently reported uncomfortable seats with the entire 8th generation (2008-2012) of Honda Accords. Complaints range from back pain to leg circulation problems due to bad lumbar support, cushioning, & seat angle. Complaints aren't limited to only a certain body type -- the seat comfort problems are from a wide spectrum of owner height & weight.

The common theme we hear is "we never noticed this during the test drive." Unfortunately for unwary buyers, the seat pain is noticeable after 15-20 minutes.

Accord 4-cyl

  • 23,000 miles


I was sold a 2010 Honda Accord last year and I have already had to replace the calipers, rotors, and pads on my rear brake assembly. I was then told by Honda America that these are ┐wear┐ parts that they will not reimburse me for. I fully understand that brakes are wear parts but ┐not at 20,000 miles┐. if it is ok for Honda to sell braking systems that need this kind of attention so early in life, they should have to warn customers at the time of purchase.

2010 Honda Accord -- repair facility noted excessive wear to rear brake pads at 24,000 miles. 10% life remaining. Front brake at more than 50% remaining life. Independent repair facility stressed extreme concern with wear. Vehicle brought to Honda facility. Honda technician indicated that the wear was "normal" for this model vehicle. Attributed wear to "extreme driving conditions" even though I do not reside on a mountain or do excessive hard braking. Honda unwilling to address brake wear under warranty. I believe there to be a severe defect.

I took my car in for service and it has only 19000 miles on it yet they told me my rear brakes were worn and need to be replaced. There is a class action settlement for the same issues but my VIN is not covered. I only replaced brakes 3 times over nearly 160,000 miles on the previous Accord that I owned. I believe the brakes are defective.

Accord 6-cyl

  • 28,000 miles


I have a 2010 4 door Honda Accord V6 ex. With only 28,000 miles on it and now my rear brakes squeak indicating worn bake pads. The rear brake pads should last around 70,000 miles. Unfortunately my car is not one of the few 2010 VIN #S covered by the Honda premature rear brake pads wear settlement even though I have the same exact problem. I hope there will be enough complaints about this problem to expand/extent to other 2010 Honda Accord affected by this problem but not covered by the settlement. Thanks

I had a periodic service check on my 2010 Honda Accord at 15299 miles, and was told I had 15% left on my rear brakes pads. However, I was also told my front brakes had 90% left. Speaking to the service representative, he said this was not unusual, each driver is different. He said my warranty for the brakes had expired. This much wear on rear brakes seems highly abnormal.

Accord 4-cyl

  • 22,000 miles
2010 Honda Accord with the new upgraded rear inner brakes still is prematurely wearing out at around 20K miles. All other brake pads including the rear outer ones are 90% there however the rear inner pads are completely worn out. This seems to be a larger issue than just bad brake pads since all other pads are fine. I have very concerned this will cause insufficient breaking and damage to the vehicle itself.

problem #8

Feb 222011


  • 25,000 miles
The rear brakes of the vehicle, which should be first replaced at about 70,000 had to be replaced at 25,000 at a cost of about $175 due to a faulty design in tthat the brakes had excess ware because the braking mechanism didn't release as they should. The car is only one year old and most miles are highway miles with little braking. I do not ride the brake pedal and never have.

Accord 6-cyl

  • 7,000 miles
2010 Honda Accord ex-L 6 cyl. - brake screech, brake smell and sliding to stop (like brakes are locked). Has happened at least 8 times - a definite life-threatening situation on this vehicle. Also, at 17,000 miles rear brakes and rotors are completely worn. Brake near-failure and smell occur intermittently. 2 dealers "cannot duplicate the problem" and have done nothing. I have also contacted Honda North America, with no help there, either. I am seeking redress via BBB autoline/ca lemon law. This vehicle is very unsafe.
