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?
