Honda Accord: Complaints & Recalls

Originally introduced in 1976, the Honda Accord has consistently been one of the best-selling vehicles in the United States since 1989. In fact, Honda has sold more than 13 million Accords in the U.S. since its first year here.

Beloved for its affordability, size, and safety, it’s no wonder the vehicle sells so well. Still, the Honda Accord does have its occasional faults.

If you’ve experienced one of the problems above, or something similar, you can report it directly to the NHTSA so they can compile your complaint in their database. If they receive enough complaints on the same topic, they may launch an investigation into the matter.

As long as the original manufacturer’s warranty hasn’t expired, you may still have the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act working in your favor. This federal law was designed to protect consumers from unethical warranty practices. If a dealership failed to fix a warrantable defect within three or more attempts and/or your Honda Accord has been out of service for 20 or more days, you may have a viable suit against the manufacturer for breach of warranty.

You may also have state lemon laws on your side. Like the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, these laws exist to extend extra protection to you, the consumer.

Don’t drive your Accord back and forth to the dealership for repairs. Robison Lemon Law Group LLC can help you navigate both the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and state lemon laws to ensure you receive the justice you deserve.
