#1439 of 1605 Re: 2010 Honda Accord - Premature rear brake pad wear [michael2595]
Jun 07, 2011 (6:42 pm)
2008 Accord Sedan EX-L V6 Navi:
Just had annual PA inspection at 28K. Original rear brake pads deemed OK with 7 remaining. Had the tsd for the package shelf rattle done.
As of tomorrow the 3/36 warranty is over - on to the power train only part.
Regarding assembly people drunk on Saki - I lived in Columbus OH a short time, during which I bought my 08 Accord, and Marysville OH where they assemble them is only 30 or so mins from there. I suspect beer drinking is more likely.
My personal scorecard (new cars only), problem child = issues dealer could not fix successfully, or repeats of same issue again:
Brand - Total Number owned - Number of which were problem childs
Dodge - 2 - 2
Chevrolet Truck - 1 - 1
Ford Truck - 1 - 0
Ford car - 2 - 0
Honda - 3 - 0
BMW - 1 - 0
Toyota Truck - 1 - 0
Subaru - 1 - 0
I miss the 2002 Toyota Tundra Limited at times - that was a Lexus like interior and ride, high revving all aluminum V8 - most like a car. Not the large barge they make now. All these have been garage kept, but driven in Mid-Atlantic winters - I doubt this Tundra would ever have developed the corrosion issue with the frame.

I noticed a rattle in mine as well. After taking a quick look I found it was the passenger side seat belt buckle. It has a tendency to turn sideways and rattle between the seat and door.

My '05 Accord does the same thing. The seat belt turns around, after use, and causes a rattle.

I have a brand new Accord V-6 EX-L Coupe (6 spd., no navi). Occasionally, I get a "springy" noise from the rear of the car. I suspect it had something to do with the cable release for the rear seat but have not been able to pin it down. I intend to have the dealer address it at the 1st oil change. Anyone else had this, know of any TSB that addresses it, or have any other ideas about what it might be?
I like my car a lot - but I miss my 2004 EX-L Coupe. It got better mileage (old car averaged 27 mpg, new car is averaging 24 on same commute) and Honda has "cheaped out" on a couple of things in the new car (solid rear seat instead of split rear seat, no door sill plastic covers, only 1/2 the front storage binnacle has a door to cover what's inside, etc.). In fairness, they did also add a few things (one-touch up/down on both windows and sunroof, voice-activated bluetooth, & fog-lamps). Perhaps the most annoying thing is that the inside of the sunglass case only has rubber on the bottom and not on the rear vertical flange (unlike the same set-up in my wife's '07 Odyssey) and so my glasses rattle whenever they're placed inside, rendering it largely useless to me. I plan to glue a piece inside one of these days.
Guess ya' never appreciate what ya' had 'til ya' ain't got it no more.
#1445 of 1605 08 Accord I4 Flushes
Jun 25, 2011 (9:19 am)
Just got back from a B1 service 45k miles. Shop (not a dealer) recommended transmission and power steering flush. They also recommended a fuel injection servicing. I passed on all of them but wanted to get thoughts on how often these and other fluids should be serviced.
The shop also really pushed the air filter change. I'm following Honda's recommendation on this and I don't drive in dusty environments.

My wife has the same 2010 Honda Accord with the Rattling noise ... Tried everything and still cannot stop it... Let us know what the dealer finds.

Ther are pros and cons to having the flushes.. They may be pushing them becuase they have equipment to pay for... If you were to get the flushes ask if these are BG flushes.. I never ever had a power steering flush . I have had a brake fluid flush and an engine flush and tranny... Problem are the seals.. They my leak afterwards.. To me this company is the standard in the areas you are inquiring about and I would call a local shop that does these BG flushes and discuss with them what they think.
Have a prosperous day.

I have had the transmission and power steering flush at a comprable mileage. The transmission flush is a must, as far as I am concerned. When they recommend any other flushes, ask to see the fluid. The service supervisor showed me my power steering fluid and it had lost its red coloring. I changed it. Apparently, Honda dealers recommend this fuel injection servicing. I always pass on that. I don't think you can go wrong with fluid changes; they are the life of the car.
