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.
