Not saying that you don't have a problem but I just "googled" as you suggested and found very few complaints involving defective welds in the current series Accords. I also consulted the NHTSA consumer complaint site at http://www.arfc.org/complaints/ and there were less than 5 entires concerning any remotely related complaint for the entire 2008-2011 series. We very much still like our 3rd Accord (2011 EX-L). Now, let me tell you about my 1982 Japanese-made Mazda B2000 pick-up sometime (if it had been a horse I'd have shot it in the head and left it on the roadside)! Good luck!Report it
