my front rotors on my 2007 went at 7500, brake pads soon to follow.. service manager said it was my fault.. turned my rotors and 3,000 miles later warped again... to find out so many people were having the same problem.. my rear pads were also shot at 10k.... I ripped out the whole brake system, rotors, calipers, pads, you name it put in non OEM parts and what a difference.. I didnt have Honda service do it and have never gone back .. I now feel relieved that my wife wont kill herself in that piece of junk car. never again will I buy a Honda.. I rather buy a moped with a top on it.

You realize that was a 3 year old post and no significant complaints since? My '07 Accord has 62,000 on the original pads and rotors.
Oh and the Acura TSX wheels I got off eBay came today. I have a truck from work tonight so I will have to wait until Friday or Monday to get them on the car. They have 3 pretty okay looking Avid A4 tires with 1 really sorry looking one. They description said the tires are shot, but they should get me to the shop to get new ones mounted.

Can anyone recommend replacement tires for this car? I have 55K on the stock tires, and the tread is starting to crack. I think they are Bridgestone Veranzas. The size is 205, 65, 15. Don't want to spend a whole lot of coin.....thanks

look for a sale at a local place. Costco and BJs can be a good deal too if you are a member.
Yokohamas are good tires at a reasonable price. I put BFG advantage tourings on my Acura TL (same size as my accord) from BJs and they are very good.
always good to read reviews at tirerack.com, even if you don't order from them (some people like to, I prefer to buy local)

If you are looking for good inexpensive tires look at Kumho or Falken.. I love Falken. Really wonderful tires.. They have a cult following. They hardly advertise so they are less money , unlike a Michelin where you pay for all that advertising

Kumho and Falken are both very good quality, value-priced tires. If you live near a Discount Tire Co. location, they are the exclusive distributors of a brand called Barum. They're high quality and I've never had an issue with them in past. I used them on my '92 and '96 Accords and my dad had them for the last six years or so on his '92 Accord EX. They're priced at $62/each plus installation at Discount Tire.
I'm a BIG fan of Dunlop SP Sport Signature tires and I've had them on Mazda3 for the last 52k miles and they've still got some life left in them. For your car, they run $94 each at Discount Tire, but there's a $40 Dunlop/Goodyear rebate if you buy a set of 4, so that's really $84/tire. They come with a 6yr/60k mile treadwear warranty. They also improved ride quality without sacrificing handling. The ones for my car are closer to $140 each! My 17" wheels/tires look good, but they also cost a ton to replace...be glad with your 15" ones!
Dunlop is owned by Goodyear, so Goodyear stores also sell their products. If you don't have a Discount Tire nearby, I'd start calling a few Goodyear dealers and have them price a set of Dunlops. Goodyear also owns Kelly Tires and most Goodyear shops sell them as well. My sister has had Kellys on her '04 Explorer for over 60k miles!
Good luck and hope this helps!

Thanks for the reply to me but I was replying to the person before me.. I am not in need of any tires yet... No discount tires around me.. Just walk in we will rip you off tires.. Never heard of Barum.. why would they do an exclusive agreement with Discount? doesnt make sense.

lots of places have private labels like that. Usually it is just another brand relabeled so they are just say a Huhmo or bridgestone underneath.

Cooper CS4. Have them on my 2003; rides better than new. They've been on the car for 22,000 miles. No issues and wearing nicely.

Did you ever figure this out? My daughter's 2007 Accord got itself into the same state as you describe. Exactly the same symptoms... I've searched all over the web and nobody seems to have a real fix for this. I've come across a silly procedure for 'resetting' the windows but it ended up resetting the radio presets and clock instead.
I hope you can tell us what fixes this.
