Hey watch for rear brake pads on those Accords. Honda just settled with everyone. They wear out every 15K and the problem is real. Just Google and you will find the settlement. Whatever they say brakes being fine, they are lying straight to everyone's face. Good customer service until they sell you the vehicle. Then terrible attitude with rude people on the phone for faulty brake pads. My biggest mistake dealing with Honda America. Don;t believe in their certified cars scam. Do your won research before you buy one of these. Call customer service and ask them questions before you commit to buy. You will change your mind.

I can't help myself from asking the question, when you spoke to the dealer tech after the original service, why didn't you bring the car back to him? You could have left it with them, until they solved the problem for you. Just need some more information to understand why you would bring it to your "tire guy" twice and the "import special guy" twice, to no avail. Yet, you only brought it to the dealer once.

I know there are many break issues, since I had to have the front and rear ones replaced at 22k miles (at that point I only owned the car a couple months). That should have been my red flag. Now at approx 39k (of course the warranty just expired at 36k) the master cylinder is going out. I take my car to a honda certified shop closer to home (it's not a dealership, but run by a group of guys and ladies who used to work at dealerships and were tired of ripping people off). They looked at my car, as well as another non-Honda certified mechanic and both said take it to the dealer cause of the master cylinder should not be going out this early. I wasn't able to find anything online about this being a larger problem, and I'm well aware tomorrow when I take it to the dealership they'll tell me nothing is wrong with the MC and send me on my way and then it will turn 40k and explode with problems (this is my luck). So just seeing if anyone has any advice? I throw such a fit at the dealership that there is a note on my account that says I can only deal w/ the service manager b/c no one wants to deal with me (for all the issues i've had with this at under 40k miles you're darn right I make a scene). I had a 92 accord that I sold at 286k miles and I still see it around town--hardly spent any money on it, at least not this much this early.

After reading your message I called my DIL as I remembered she had brake issues on her 2010. She's had the brakes done 3 times, but doesn't know if she had the master cylinder done or not.... "I just pay them when it's done". Obviously an easy target. I had forgotten about the brake issues from 2008-2012 and was actually wondering if they took care of this with the 2013. I would suggest you contact a factory rep and try to get something worked out for your master cylinder. I agree with the guys who told you it shouldn't be a problem yet. In fact, I didn't even know master cylinders went out anymore BTW - have you had any steering column grinding or anything like that?
#339 of 344 Knocking Sound Front Suspension In Warm Weather or When Brakes Warm
Aug 22, 2013 (7:44 pm)
Hey 2010 Accord Owners,
Don't know if this one has been covered, but it is lighting up the Accord Forums. Honda released a TSB for it 12-082. The problem is a loud knocking sound from the front suspension when slowing to stop or starting up from a stop. The knock is almost rotational sounding. This started on my 2010 LX last year. I brought it in to be looked at, and they couldn't find anything wrong, at the time the car was under warranty. Now that the car is out of warranty, Honda released the TSB, which states that both lower ball joints should be replaced with new updated parts. The old ball joints created a "stick-slip" knocking noise.
This year the noise in my 2010 has gotten real bad. It is now so loud that it drowns out conversation in the car. It sounds as if the entire wheel is going to come off and you can feel vibration in the floor and steering wheel. I can't believe it's not a safety recall.
Anyhow, seems a lot of people are having this issue so I thought I would pass it along in case someone was wondering what it is. Looks like after having just spent $1k on four rotors and pads I am going to have to cough up another $400 or so I don't go insane listening to this knocking noise. All before 80k miles. Yippee!

I have just reached the 15,800 mile point on my 2010 Honda Accord V6 model. My local Honda dealer has informed me that the read brake pads are at the recommended upper limit for replacement. I only use the automobile to travel to and from work on mostly flat pavement, going between work and home on a 11 mile round trip on weekdays. I did not expect a brake issue under 30,000 miles. Would you know if I have any recourse from Honda on the issue, fearing that even with my fully extended Honda Care service agreement the repair would likely not be covered.

of Honda, having had 4 of them in the past, but, if I read you right, the rear brakes need replacement at about 16K miles???...are you sure you didn't leave off a digit somewhere?
Heck, some cars can almost go 16K miles on an OIL CHANGE these days, if you use synthetic oil and have a large enough oil pan...

After I posted my message I discovered that there was a class action lawsuit on the matter. The trouble is that I never was aware of the rear brake pad issue. Since I drive under 5,000 miles per year and nobody notified me of the issue, I was not aware of the associated lawsuit that was settled for the limited 3-year time frame beginning in year 2010. Since more than 3 years have elapsed I am now out in the cold with no recourse. It is reasonable to think that our legal system would have been smart enough to base the settlement on the number of miles driven since a vehicle was purchased, right?
