CarComplaints.com 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 2014 Honda Accord seats are uncomfortable. Uncomfortable seats has been a significant complaint with the Accord since the 2008 model year.

Not sure if this is a "takata recall." Auto accident on major interstate, breaking and moving about 10-15 mph when vehicle was struck various times. The vehicle was struck in the rear driver side, then took a front strike with the vehicle in front while also receiving a driver side hit along the door, rearview mirror area, and front tire. The vehicle then was pushed into a guardrail from strikes to the car in the upper front and side region of the drivers side. No airbags deployed during the accident or after, though equipped with several airbag locations. The seatbelt remained moveable and did not tense/lock up.

The air bag exploded on the collision on a street and caused severe burns on her hands. Please see the pictures below. This is causing her immense pain and trauma and she is having trouble performing day to day activities. The injuries she suffered because of the airbag were more than the actual collision. This is causing her to go in depression and she is scared of the airbag, more than anything now. The car is beyond repair and is being salvaged by the insurance company.

Takata recall:my car was hesitating when accelerating from a stop. I stopped and turned the car off only for about 5 minutes, I got back in, turned the car on and it wouldn't start. I was on a city St, so I walked to auto mechanic shop, got a jump, it started up after 5 to 10 minutes. The next day, the same thing happen. I called Honda, got someone to jump start the car, drove to Honda, left the car for 2 days. Honda called me stating that the battery was good, but the sensors were bad and needed to be replaced. They replaced the sensors, charged me $160. I picked up the car, drove it home, then 2 days later, the car died out again. I called Honda again, they told me to bring the car in. I got the car jumped in order to take it back to Honda. This time, I left the car there for 3 days. They told me this time that the battery was bad and wanted me to pay for a battery. I refused to pay for a battery, sent the manager an email in reference to the findings that they said was wrong with the vehicle because in the begining, they told me that it was nothing wrong with the battery and now I paid for the sensor and the car still cut off. Did I really need the sensors or was it the battery in the first place? they replaced the battery at no charge..
