My girlfriend bought a 2013 Accord based on the wonderful reports in CR magazine. She loves the car, but yesterday might have changed her opinion. She lives in Upstate NY and she hadn't driven the car for three days, but decided to go shopping and off she went. Returning home after about a roundtrip of five miles, she turned off the vehicle for about five minutes and it would not start. AAA was called and provided a jumpstart, but said their tester indicated the battery would not hold a charge. She them drove the car to the dealer for their assessment. Their answer was these cars need to be driven every couple days at least and if not, the owner should by a trickle charger. It's 2014! No new car owner should have to buy a trickle charger. Honda missed the boat on this one. The battery is way too weak and their should be some sort of consumer action against the company. Excuse me. I have to leave to plug in the trickle charger.Report it
