#1451 of 1605 Re: 2010 ACCORD REAR BREAK Problems [kendall8]
Jun 27, 2011 (7:21 am)
A strongly worded letter faxed to Honda Customer Service did the trick for me a few months back (refer to my prior posts on this topic in this thread). I was able to recoup from Honda my out-of-pocket costs for pads and brake repair inside of a month. By the amount of people showing up on this Forum, I'd expect a Class Action Suit that includes all 2010 Accords in the near future.
I am having my next oil change done at the Dealer just so they can do their free inspection thing so the wear on the new rear pads after about 5K miles can be properly documented. We'll see if using ceramic aftermarket pads cures the problem or not.

I will never set foot in a Honda service dept ever...rotors bad at 7500 , then at 15.. said I needed rear brakes and blame the rotor problems and brakes on me. Charged me 700 dollars to turn the rotors.. I almost fainted. I f Only I had a flamethrower... Unlike most who had their brakes changed By honda with the same lousy pads, wtc, I took my care to a local shop and changed every brake related part in my car , even the calipers.with non OEM parts.. Honda can kiss my ass and now When My wife takes the car at least I know she will be safe with new rotors, pads and calipers.. ell worth the 700 additional dollars.

I should have clarified that I did not let Honda do the work. I purchased the pads myself and had my prefered repair shop turn the rotors and install the new pads...labor was about $140 and about $20 for the pads after rebate. The Honda offer was about $20 less than the invoices I submitted, but covered my actual out of pocket costs (after rebate) so I did not make an issue about it.
And I generally expect one set of front and rear pads during a 3-year lease term, so there is also normal wear and tear to consider. No sense in getting gready.

See my post from earlier today. Contact information, including fax #, is on Honda America website. Referring the the Class Action Lawsuit for 08 and 09 models, and the numerous complaints found on the Internet about 2010 models should help.

Ok, looks that more and more of the 2010 owners are coming out, so the PROBLEM IS WIDESPREAD AND THEY DID NOT DO NOTHING to remediate a known issue.
I really hope that SOON a Class Action lawsuit will be in place even for ALL 2010 owners...

I have an 09 Accord Coupe V6 and have experienced oil consumption of about 1 qt every 6,000 miles. I now have 25,000 mi and oild consumption continues. Under dealer test presently. I am very disappointed with oil consumption. I have owned numerous Honda's, both 4-cyl and 6-cyl and never encountered this problem previously. I am suspicious that consumption is related to the VCM or valve seals. I have been using 5W-20 synthetic oil with no change in consumption.

For waht it's worth i have 46,000 miles on my 08 exv6. I do change oil at 3,000 mile intervals with no oil consumption between changes. I use recomended weight. My previous Hondas have never used oil. Make sure to not give up on your issue with the dealer. Also, no real problems with the car whatsoever and on my original tires and brakes. Was one of the first coupes off the line.

one quart every 6,000 miles you say? There's nothing wrong with that. That's quite normal. I wouldn't even worry about it.

oil changes every 3000 miles? lol your honda has a maintenance minder built within the system and it will tell you when you need to change your oil. changing the oil every 3000 miles is a waste of oil and assuming you have it changed at the honda dealership, all you're doing is putting money in their pocket. according to the honda factory reps, you ought to pay attention to the car's maintenance minder and only change the oil when it says it needs to be changed. i use honda filters and honda oil and go approximately 8500-10,000 miles per oil change and never has my car ever used any amount of oil even when i have driven in extreme heat and bitter cold and cruised at speeds of 80mph for several hours. i have an 08 accord ex-L v6 with 79,000 miles and my dealership reminds me to pay attention to the maintenance minder on my honda. they have also told me they will not change my oil unless my car's minder says it has 20% of life or less. this is my 2nd accord ex-l v6 and i had 85000 miles on my 04 and it never used any oil between changes and it too went 8500-10,000 miles between oil changes per its maintenance minder.
