Accord Crosstour

  • 96,000 miles


Vehicle shaking and vibrating while acclerating, turning and driving at controlled speed. 30-65mph. Honda dealer states "source to be a bad axel " (sic). Also states parts supply problem with "national back order, no eta." This seems to be a serious safety issue with the vehicle and a recall is needed given the potential for loss of control. Please see attached invoice.

The vehicle vibrates, and shakes upon acceleration. Honda is aware of the drive axle issues with this auto. In fact they tell me the car needs drive axles, but can't repair as the drive axles are on indefinite backorder, and if they could get the axles the repair would be in excess of $1000.

Excess oil consumption. First made aware by oil service technician when the car was just under 5 years old. Technician said they notice excess consumption at the previous change, but thought it was a fluke. Since then, Honda has had me recording mileage and oil levels. After nearly 8,000 miles I had enough evidence for them to do a software update....which did not fix the problem. One thousand miles after the most recent oil change, I had to add 1/2 quart. Now the local Honda repair shop says they are trying to convince Honda to do a good-will fix. Really" how is this good will when this is a known engineering design issue"

Two weeks ago, I was driving at approximately 55 mph, the car felt as if it were switching gears sluggishly. Then I noticed the engine light had come on. I took the vehicle to O'reilly's to investigate the engine light which was caused by a P3400 code/bank 1. I researched the code and purchased 2 quarts of the 0W20 synthetic oil. The light went out after driving approximately 10 miles. I then made an appointment for an oil change, however the dealership was closed for the memorial day holiday and rescheduled for tomorrow (3 days later). The light has since come back on; I again checked the oil and had to add 2 quarts of 0W20 synthetic oil. Once again, the car is sluggish and has a new symptom of knocking when accelerating. I will have it towed in the morning for the scheduled oil change to ensure nothing is damaged. I have done additional research and found that I had received notification from Honda last year in reference to a class action settlement for service bulletin (#11-033) that addressed excessive oil consumption from a "systematic design defect that enables oil to enter into the engine's combustion chamber. This leads to premature spark plug degradation and engine malfunction." Hopefully, the dealership will repair the defect once and for all.

Accord Crosstour 6-cyl

  • 4,896 miles
Floorboard/vibration shake at 22mph and 72mph. Brake pulsation - dealer turned rotors, replaced rotors, and still have brake pulsation. We have had numerous problems with our Honda crosstour - normal acceleration at 22mph gas pedal, brake, floorboards shake. When cruising at 72mph or going down slight decline entire car shakes. Brakes were pulsating at 4896 miles, 10K miles, 18K miles, and still are not correct at 20K miles. What dealer has done so far - Jul 2011 - turned rotors, road force balanced tires/wheels - no improvements with vibration at 22 and 72 mph - dealer wanted to wait for donor parts to replace drive shaft assembly (we waited 4 months) - Honda tsb drive shaft assembly 29 Oct 2011 - complained about vibration at 22 and 72mph again, and brake pulsation, dealer replace front axles - no improvements - and replaced front rotors. 18 Jul 2012 - complained about vibration at 22 and 72 mph, and brake pulsation again - dealer replaced rotors - dealer balanced tires and wheels again. August/September 2012 - Honda regional rep came in - road force balance tires again -swapped out front tires and rims, shutdown vcm, swapped out computer no improvements - vibration/shudder still present at 22mph and 72mph- brakes still pulsating 24 Sept 2012 - national Honda rep came in checked valve tolerances - cylinder 5 valves tight causing misfires - didn't improve vibration/shudder replaced axles again, replaced torque converter engine vibration is better at 22mph but worse at 72 mph - cruising and much worse going down declines. Brakes are still not correct. Our car / engine has been shaking severely for a long time and we are worried about our safety - that something may come loose and cause us to lose control of the vehicle getting hurt or hurting someone else. Honda has not been posting these tsb's publicly.
