I was driving down the highway at 60mph when suddenly the car threw itself in reverse! No one was behind me, but I had to quickly brake and back into the shoulder and put it in “Park”. It has also suddenly shut down without warning while in drive. This has happened several times at different speeds, sometimes at a red light.

The engine rattles loudly for about 3 seconds on could start-up. The componet that is failing is the VTC ACTUATOR. This problem is casuing the engine light to go on. Also, I found out that the VTC Actuator on honda accord is a common failure. This is not a coincidence, it is a manufacture defect. In addition, it is putting my life in danger while it may cause engine failure. The VTC actuator rattles have been confirmed by independent mechanic.

The contact owned a 2008 Honda Accord. The contact stated that while her daughter was driving at 67 mph, a tractor-trailer crashed into the contact's driver side causing the vehicle to flip 5 - 6 times before landing in a ditch. The air bags did not deploy. The contact's daughter was transported to the hospital by ambulance. A police report was filed. The vehicle was towed to a towing yard. The contact's insurance company had not inspected the vehicle to deem it totaled. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and opened a case. However, the manufacturer requested the contact's insurance company for a technical report of the accident. The failure mileage was approximately 192,000.

My passenger air bag is on. Technician is looking at it but cannot find the problem. It cannot pass vehicle inspection with the light on. Seeking help and or advice on servicing the problem. The Technician thinks it may be the button switch or the computer brain. Are these possibilities? Thank you in advance. Stationed in Europe.

MY HUSBAND AND I WERE ON A TRIP AND I DIDN'T REALIZE IT, BUT PEOPLE KEPT FLASHING US AND I DID NOT HAVE MY LIGHTS ON. WHEN WE PULLED OVER, MY HUSBAND COULD NOT GET OUT OF HIS SIDE OF THE DOOR. IT WOULD NOT OPEN. WE WERE ON THE FREEWAY, ON A COLD RAINY DAY AND VISIBILITY WAS BAD, AND NOT BEING ABLE TO HAVE LIGHTS, OR DEFROSTER WORK PROPERLY PUT US IN A HAZARDOUS POSITION. LATER I FOUND OUT AS I TOOK IT TO A MECHANIC WAS THAT OUR FUSE BOX WAS NOT WORKING CORRECTLY, AND THE LIGHTS ON THE RIGHT SIDE ONLY AND THE DOOR AND THE DEFROSTER WERE NOT WORKING. IT COST ME $951.09 TO GET THIS REPAIRED ON MY 2008 HONDA ACCORD. I THINK WHEN PEOPLE GET IN A CAR, AND DRIVE IT ESPECIALLY IN HAZARDOUS CONDITIONS, EVERYTHING SHOULD WORK PROPERLY. I DID SEE ON SEVERAL SITES THERE WAS A RECALL ON THIS, BUT I NEVER RECEIVED A RECALL LETTER, OR WAS CONTACTED BY MY DEALER. I WOULD LIKE TO BE REIMBURSED FOR THE $951.09 OH, AND I ALSO WOULD LIKE OTHER HONDA OWNERS TO BE AWARE OF THIS PROBLEM. IT COULD POSSIBLY PREVENT AN ACCIDENT, SOMEONE IN DIRE SITUATION THAT AFFECTS THEIR SAFETY. THE CAR WAS BEING DRIVEN ON A RAINY DAY, AND THE DEFROSTER COULD NOT CLEAR THE WINDOWS, WE COULD NOT PUT THE HEATER ON, COULD NOT ROLL THE WINDOW DOWN, COULD NOT GET OUT OF THE CAR BECAUSE THE LOCK WOULD NOT COME UP. REGARDS, AMY LOWERY

THIS 2008 HONDA ACCORD CONSTANTLY MISSES MOSTLY FROM CYLINDER 1 AND SOMETIMES JUST SPITS OIL OUT OF THE TAILPIPE.THE MISSES HAPPEN AT IDLE, AND ALMOST 100% WHEN ATTEMPTING TO PASS MAKING IT EXTREMELY UNSAFE. IT HAS HAD MANY SENSORS REPLACE, ITS TIMING BELT REPLACED, ALL COILS, AND SPARKPLUGS MANY TIMES. THE MECHANIC SAYS THE SPARK PLUGS ARE LASER IRRIDIUM AND SHOULD LAST 100,000 MILES BUT ARE LUCKY TO LAST 10,000 MILES. I AM NOT SURE WHAT DOCUMENTS TO INCLUDE BUT AM JUST GETTING THIS COMPLAINT STARTED. I HAVE THE ACCORD AT THE MECHANIC TODAY BUT IT HAS BEEN MULTIPLE REPAIRS PRIOR TO THIS.
