Drivers window would go half way up stop on it's own then go back down and stick, drivers door would not open from either inside or out. Could not get out of car, had to crawl over to pass. Side and get out. Passenger side door started exhibiting the same behavior, still not resolved. Doesn't happen all the time but it does happen, safety issue. Back up camera went black, they replaced camera, still the color is off at times, other times it is black or becomes distorted, color at night is in negative at times. Showed them the pics. And I was told it does what it was designed to do. Bought the car brand new, it shouldn't have these prob. The door is the most concerning part, if my child is in the pass. Side seat and I have to get them out, and the door decides it doesn't want to open, then we have a very serious safety issue. I have had the car to the dealership 8 to 10 times since Feb. 2015, I have called customer service, they don't seem to help, I am out of options. This is only July 2015, I need help in resolving this matter with the door, I can live with the camera even though it is not working properly.

Had gotten back in my car after a stop at a retail store. When I turned the car on the tire pressure light was blinking, the electric power steering light was on, and the vehicle stability assist light was on. I pulled over at another store within a half mile. I got out and checked the tires for a possible flat - no problem. Turned car back on and same scenario with the 3 lights on. Only difference was the tire pressure light stopped flashing but stayed on continuously. I looked in car manual, page 6 of Honda technology reference guide, under the heading of malfunction indicators and it said, "if an indicator remains on, there may be a problem; see your dealer". I will call my car dealer in the morning. I want to state that I still had full control of my power steering. I read of others losing the power steering but mine was okay. After the second stop the 3 malfunctioning indicator lights went out.

My vehicle shut down while parked in an plaza on pembroke road at the beginning on March 2015. This happened again X 2 while the vehicle was parked (engine running) on separate days. The last time it happened I was driving along pines boulevard in peak hour traffic (Tuesday April 21st 2015), as I approached the intersection of hiatus road and pines boulevard, I started slowing down for a red light. The vehicle then shut down/stalled again. The fact that there was a red light helped to prevent and accident, as everyone driving in the same direction had to stop. This time I had to call for a police cruiser to stand in place until I was able to get a tow or get it started again. After about 30 minutes, I finally got it started again and made it home. I took it to a Honda dealer on Wednesday April 22, 2015. They were able to replicate the issue but after replacing the battery (4-23-2015), fuel pump (4-24-2015) they said that the issue still persists and is now getting more frequent. They (autonation Honda in miami lakes) have been trying to 'fix' the problem but they have not yet succeeded. Today is May 3rd 2015 I am asking that the ntsb looks into this issue, as the last time it happened I was in peak hour traffic, this issue can lead to an accident.. I also contacted Honda corporate customer service and reported the issue. [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Honda's reply to my complaint below / $250 gift card was an absolute "slap in the face" to me as a so called "appreciation for my Honda loyalty" and not recognizing this engineering defect! I'm now even more disgusted with Honda and I plan to do everything in my power to warn others. I've recently read where a class action lawsuit was recently settled for a similar problem w/Honda civics, odysseus & an Acura model. Honda recognized / admitted to this similar design flaw only after they were forced to do so. Absolutely shameful!!! exerts from my 8/25 letter to Honda below; dear sirs, I wanted to make you aware of an occurrence I just experienced with my 2013 Honda Accord I just purchased (6/10/2014). My air conditioner stopped cooling on fri, 8/22/2014 after leaving work. After I returned home from a sweltering 45 mile commute, I immediately notified the local dealership and scheduled an appointment on sat, 8/23. As my 2013 certified Honda Accord was still under warranty (I purchased 74 days early), I was sure the problem would be covered @no cost to me. I had even purchased Honda'┐'s extended warranty on 6/10 even though ive never experienced repair problems with my purchases in the past. I was told road debris had damaged the condenser due to its lack of protection, all of the freon leaked out, the condenser would have to be replaced and it would not be covered under warranty. The condenser cost was $168 while with installation cost was $400.99! after all of my research online it appears this is a ┐┐wide-spread design problem and Honda is actually making money off of the defect by charging outrageous service fees to fix the problem. It disgusts me to think this could happen again and again!
