Notes: The 2013-2014 Honda Accord is showing signs of an electrical problem with the starter failing soon after the 36K mile warranty expires. It's compounded by reports that the OEM battery doesn't have sufficient amps to start the V6 reliably after a year or two.

For now we are rating this problem with the "Beware" seal because it's occurring so soon after the 36K mile warranty expires. The upshot is when your Accord won't start, that's never good, but especially bad when it's just a few years old.

Also once again, owners are complaining that the 2013 Honda Accord seats are uncomfortable. Uncomfortable seats has been a significant complaint with the Accord since the 2008 model year.

2013 Honda Accord Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 282012

Accord EX-L 4 cyl

  • CVT transmission
  • 7 miles


I like the car the only problem is with the LED lights at night in dark areas, like rural area where I live and drive. The problem is the LED lights only illuminated the bottom 1/3 of the viewing area of the windshield. Everything above that 1/3 bottom area is dark. I would never see a deer on the side of the road. Approaching cars headlights can be seen dimly. I consider the problem a safety issue, one the needs immediate correction.

I took the car to the dealer who checked out the light specs. The car passed. I was also told by service personal that is is a common problem with all the Honda Accords with this style and trim. I was told I am not the only person to complain. The had no fix for the problem at this time.

I'm positive that someone will have an accident due to this problem. I hope Honda will deal with it ASAP so I can have my car lights fixed. The only way to drive safely is to use the bright lights. This doesn't appear to be a problem for most oncoming cars but at least one in 25 cars give me an indication to dim my lights.
