2009 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


The brakes have squeaked since day one and have been replaced three times. The dashboard warning lights come on when going through the car wash. Covered the first two times by warranty and had to paid $50 the third time. Told the pressure from the drying system is too powerful and shakes the vehicle too much. Not kidding! Engine light came on and they blamed a non-factory air filter. Came on the next day and they told me their service bulletin said clean with air pressure. Really? Now the panel holding the fuses has become corroded and needs replaced - $1,500. No accountability from Honda NA. Told by Honda CS it can't be that much of a piece of junk because I have 50K miles on it!

Best Features

Exterior looks good. Stereo quality is acceptable. Big back seat holds adults comfortably.

Worst Features

As a six time Honda owner (3 Hondas and 3 Acuras), I would have thought they would have cared a bit more about the problems. Reliability, build quality and Honda attitude (dealer and NA HQ) is appalling. You can bet my next car won't be a Honda.
