Summary of Complaint

HONDA ACCORD 2009 - CURRENTLY 62K MILES. ENGINE RATTLES ON START UP AND ALSO ON ACCELERATION. CONTACTED HONDA DEALERSHIP ABOUT THE SPORADIC FLASHING OIL LIGHT AND RATTLING NOISE. DEALERSHIP CONFIRMED NO LEAKING OIL, BUT THERE WAS OIL CONSUMPTION. NOW INVOLVED WITH A OIL CONSUMPTION TEST. DEALERSHIP COULDN'T REPLICATE THE RATTLING NOISE. WE NEVER RECEIVED THE NOTICE FROM HONDA ON THE SERVICE BULLETIN ABOUT OIL CONSUMPTION. CURRENTLY 1K MILES INTO THE CONSUMPTION TEST AND WE ARE HALFWAY TO THE LOWER MARK ON THE DIPSTICK. UPDATED THE DEALERSHIP OF THE STATUS AND WAS TOLD NOT TO BRING IT BACK UNTIL IT WAS AT THE LOWER MARK ON THE DIPSTICK. CAR CONTINUES TO HAVE THE RATTLING NOISE, WHICH NOW THE DEALERSHIP IS ADVISING US THAT IS A SEPARATE ISSUE. CURRENTLY STILL COVERED UNDER THE EXTENDED WARRANTY FOR THIS ISSUE, BUT A TEST HAS TO BE COMPLETED BEFORE THE ISSUE IS RESOLVED. EXTENDED WARRANTY SHOULD HAVE TAKEN AFFECT WITHOUT ANY TESTING, SINCE THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE AND NEEDS TO BE DEALT WITH IMMEDIATELY INSTEAD OF WAITING AROUND UNTIL SOMEONE GETS INJURED OR MORE DAMAGE IS DONE TO THE CAR. THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED FOR EVERY CAR THAT WAS LISTED IN THAT BULLETIN.

Summary of Complaint

TAKATA RECALL. I OWN A 2009 HONDA ACCORD 2-DR AND THE RECALL IS APPLIED TO THE 4-DR ONLY. HOWEVER, I WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO DESCRIBE MY CAR'S ISSUE BETTER THAN THE RECALL. I WAS DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY (I-35) WITH APPROX. 65 MPH, GOING STRAIGHT NOT TURNING IN ANY WAY. I HEARD A VERY LOUD POP NOISE AND MY PASSENGER'S SEAT AND CURTAIN AIRBAGS HAD DEPLOYED. HONESTLY, IT'S VERY HARD TO TELL IF I RAN OVER A POTHOLE OR IF I HIT A ROCK BECAUSE THE LOUD NOISE AND MY SHOCK DOMINATED THE MOMENT. THANKFULLY, I WAS COMMUTING ALONE THAT DAY AND NOBODY GOT HURT. I STOPPED THE CAR TO INSPECT IT AND I COULDN'T SEE ANYTHING. I FILLED A CLAIM WITH HONDA CUSTOMER SERVICE AND TOOK THE CAR TO THE NEAREST HONDA CENTER FOR A DIAGNOSIS ($120). HONDA CUSTOMER SERVICE REQUESTED THAT ONE OF THEIR FIELD ENGINEERS INSPECTED THE CAR. AFTER HIS INSPECTION, HE DETERMINED THAT AN IMPACT CAUSED THE AIRBAGS TO DEPLOY. WHEN I REQUESTED TO SEE THE IMPACT SIGNS, THEY POINTED A SCRATCH ON THE FRAME RAIL. THEY SAID THAT THE SCRATCH SEEMS MINOR ONLY BECAUSE IT HAPPENED ON THE TOUGHEST PART OF THE CAR, THE FRAME RAIL. THAT SCRATCH IS ALMOST UNDERNEATH THE PASSENGER'S SIDE SENSOR. I ASKED FOR MORE INFORMATION, SUCH AS THE THRESHOLD WHEN AN AIRBAG DEPLOYS, HOW DO THEY KNOW THAT THIS SCRATCH WAS NOT THERE BEFORE, ETC. THEY DIDN'T ANSWER MY QUESTIONS, INSTEAD THEY TOLD ME THAT THE SCRATCH WAS "FRESH". I'M ATTACHING THE PICTURES OF THE SCRATCH ON THE FRAME RAIL. IT'S NOT VERY OBVIOUS BUT LOOK AT THE SILVER SCRAPE. I DECIDED TO TAKE MY CAR TO MY INSURANCE (PROGRESSIVE). THEY WERE BAFFLED WITH WHAT THEY SAW AND THEY COULDN'T BELIEVE THAT SUCH SCRATCH WOULD CAUSE THE AIRBAGS TO DEPLOY. THE ESTIMATOR HELPING ME WASN'T SURE IF THEY'LL COVER IT. HE'LL ELEVATE THE ISSUE AND CALL ME ON MONDAY. HONDA DOESN'T RECOGNIZE THIS AS A DEFECT SINCE THEY FOUND A SCRATCH. PROGRESSIVE MAY NOT FIX IT. NO CAR OUT OF NOWHERE!

Summary of Complaint

MY NAME IS [XXX]. BETWEEN MY MOTHER AND I WE OWN 4 HONDA VEHICLES. 2 ACCORDS AND 2 CIVICS. THE TWO ACCORDS ARE MODEL YEARS 2009 AND 2016. 2009 HONDA ACCORD LX-S 242K MILES 2016 HONDA ACCORD SPORT 47K MILES I HAVE NOTICED BOTH OF THESE CARS TO HAVE A ISSUE WITH OIL AT STARTUP. THE 2009 MAKES MORE NOISE THAN THE 2016. IT SEEMS TO BE AN ISSUE WITH THE VCT ACTUATOR ON THE CAR. THIS IS JUST AN ISSUE AT STATIONARY STARTUP. WHEN THE CAR IS IN MOTION THERE IS NO ISSUES. I DID A QUICK GOOGLE SEARCH TO SEE AND I PULLED PAGES AND PAGES OF INFO ABOUT PEOPLE HAVING THIS SAME ISSUE. IT EVEN SHOWS THAT HONDA IS AWARE OF THIS ISSUE AND THEY SENT OUT SERVICE BULLETINS REGARDING THIS BUT AS TO WHY THE OWNERS ARE STILL HAVING TO PAY FOR THIS IS NOT RIGHT. THIS IS A VIDEO OF THE ISSUE: HTTPS://WWW.YOUTUBE.COM/WATCH?V=8GMJAS9CUWG THIS IS OBVIOUSLY NOT A ONE TIME DEAL WITH THIS ISSUE ON THE ACCORDS. MY CIVICS DO NOT HAVE ANY NOISE AT START UP, THEY ARE 2009 AND 2014 YEAR MODELS. THANKS FOR YOUR TIME [XXX] INFORMATION REDACTED PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6). *TR

WE HAVE FOUND THAT ARE 2009 HONDA ACCORD HAS A PARASITIC DRAW WE HAVE TO PULL FUSES SO THE BATTERY DOES NOT GO DEAD WITHIN HOURS. HAVE TRIED NEW BATTERIES, CHARGE BATTERIES. THROUGH OUR OWN RESEARCH PEOPLE ARE CALLING THIS PROBLEM A PARASITIC DRAW FROM THE BATTERY AND ITS A MATTER OF TRACING WIRES DOWN AND PULLING FUSES. AND IF YOU WANT TO USE CAR WITHOUT RUNNING BATTERY DOWN MY HUSBAND HAS PULLED A FUSE OR TWO BUT THIS DISABLES SEVERAL THINGS RADIO, SOME DASHBOARD FUNCTIONS. WHICH IF IT KEEPS GOING COULD BE PROBLEMATIC ON THE FUNCTION OF THE HONDA MAYBE AFFECTING LIGHTS EVENTUALLY OR OTHER SAFETY FEATURES. SO WOULD LIKE TO SEE HOW MANY OTHER PEOPLE ARE EXPERIENCING THIS PROBLEM AND HOW BAD IT CAN GET AND HOW IT CAN BE FIXED. SOME PEOPLE WERE DISCONNECTING WIRES TO REMEDY THE PROBLEM AND DON'T WANT TO DO THAT. WHEN WE BOUGHT CAR IT HAD TO BE JUMP STARTED. SO THE PROBLEM HAS ONLY INCREASED AS TIME HAS PASSED.
