I found it in post #922. I think there is a actual audio/video clip somewhere. I'll post a link to it if I find it. Hope this helps!

Not a problem. I looked but the link I had to a pdf of the TSB with the audio clip is dead. Let us know if you get your problem resolved. Have you contacted the dealer you purchased it from about this? I haven't heard of any 2.4's sludging up before.

#1391 of 1618 Honda Accord 2008 Ex V6 Nav/PZEV NO 2 AND 5 PLUGS Malfuctioning
Mar 28, 2011 (5:02 am)
My Honda Accord 2008 Ex V6 Nav/PZEV was having issues and when I tried to figure out what was happening on my own, I discovered that there was no supply of electricity to the coils on Plug number 3 and 5 on the engine, I believe this is an electrical problem. I don't know if anybody can tell me the source of this problem.

I know I'm late to the party and the issue has been brought up many times, but I solved the dimming headlight issue with my 2008 EX-L four-cylinder. The problem was the small battery they use in the four. I bought a full-sized battery (had to also buy a new battery pan and hold-down bolts), hooked it up and now it only dims a little when the compressor kicks in (like everyone else's does).
#1393 of 1618 2010 Honda Accord - Premature rear brake pad wear
Apr 09, 2011 (4:47 pm)
I have a 2010 Accord with rear brake pads that are all but gone after 13,000 miles (per my dealership). The dealer also said this is the first 2010 they have seen this on, and advised me about the Class Action lawsuit for the 2008 - 2009 Accords. Apparently there are many other 2010 Accords effected as well, but only a few VINs are covered by the Class Action Settlement. Does anyone have any information on possible reimbursement for rear brakes for 2010 Accords?
The dealer wanted $169 to replace the pads. My plan is to have the pads replaced with Wagner ceramic pads by a private shop and then request reimbursement from Honda Customer Service. The private shop can replace the pads (and cut the rotors) for less than the dealership. Any thoughts?

Not sure about them reimbursing you if it's not done at the stealership, I never had to deal with the premature wear. I might of set a worlds record for most miles driven on a set of rear brakes on a 08 Accord = 43K. Just replaced them last month. My friends shop put ceramics and new rotors on for me. I don't like to gamble having them turned. Once I had them turned on a minivan and drove out to Colorado, and by the time we got back they were warped and had to be replaced. The less material that is there the easier it is for them to warp. For the rotors, pads, and a oil change with Mobil 1 ran me close to $300. Not the cheapest, but better than taking a chance on warped rotors. Maybe a anonymous call to Honda America could answer your question about reimbursement?
