Overview
Honda Accord

It's no secret. Modern vehicles are more reliable than ever, thanks to industry-wide quality processes that are more or less universally applied across all auto manufacturers. Though quality surveys differ in the specifics, most present the same clear trend: the gap between the best- and worst-performing vehicles is much narrower than it ever has been. How, then, does the Honda Accord hold onto its reputation as a default choice among midsize sedans?

As reliability becomes less of a differentiator between competing midsize sedans, savvy car shoppers are changing their focus. Fuel efficiency, in-car connectivity and interior appointments are more important than ever among shoppers seeking maximum value. In each of these areas, the once-trailblazing Accord finds itself squarely mid-pack. Subtract older Accords' visceral charm, and factor in the current vehicle's pedigreed pricetag. It's a formula that could forecast a fall from grace for the Honda Accord -- especially if the competition maintains its half-step lead.

Recall Notice

LemonFree has found some important recall information regarding 2004-2005 Honda Accord vehicles

2004 Honda Accord (5/17/2012)  

Campaign Number: 12V222000

Component Name: STEERING:HYDRAULIC POWER ASSIST:HOSE, PIPING, AND CONNECTIONS

Manufacturer: Honda (American Honda Motor Co.)

Description: Honda is recalling certain model year 2007 and 2008 Acura TL and model year 2003-2007 Accord V6 vehicles. In May 2012, Honda filed a defect report to recall certain model year 2007 and 2008 Acura TL vehicles. In September 2012, Honda informed the agency that it was including an additional 573,147 vehicles including certain model year 2003 through 2007 Accord V6 vehicles. The total number of vehicles being recalled is now 625,762. Prolonged under-hood and power steering fluid temperatures may cause the power steering hose to deteriorate prematurely, resulting in cracks and power steering fluid leakage.

Defect: If this occurs, power steering fluid can leak onto a hot catalytic converter, leading to smoke and possibly an under-hood fire.

Corrective Action: Honda will notify owners, and dealers will install a new heat resistant power steering hose, free of charge. The original recall began in June 2012, and owners of those vehicles may obtain the free remedy. Sufficient parts are not yet available for owners of the vehicles covered by the September 2012 expansion, but are expected to be available in early 2013. Honda will notify owners of these vehicles beginning on October 26, 2012, and will notify these owners again when parts are available so those vehicles can be brought to dealers for applications of the free remedy. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-800-999-1009.
