update on rear brakes
By eec1 on


2008 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


I finally had to change my rear brakes at 18904 since the wear sensor was squeaking. No rotor turning (cutting) was needed (I never turn my rotors). I did the job myself with the appropriate Honda brakes (43022-TA0-A40); the new pads also have a spring clip to help separate the pads. Honda pads also come with M77 Molykote brake grease for the shims. I don’t like to use aftermarket brakes since the one time I did for my previous Honda my rotors warped. Since the class action suit for the rear brakes was over I tried to collect by sending a letter to Honda with documented proof of mileage and cost of brakes. Honda reimbursed me for the cost of brakes with shipping.

Best Features

Typical Honda traits of good handling and acceleration.

Worst Features

Honda should have sent a letter to all owners stating that new rear brakes will be covered. I talked to customer service and he stated that dealers were authorized to cover the costs of rear brakes but the class action lawsuit made this impossible.
