visor on driver side broke while driver was attempting to put it down to block the sun. when it broke, it dangled in front of the driver and blocked the driver's vision of the road. fortunately, the driver was able to grab the visor and hold it out of the way and regain sight of the road before causing an accident. the supporting metal arm separated at the point where the wire for the mirror light exits the arm. it would appear that there was a defect in the design and the casting. *nlm

i purchased my $34,000 2003 accord on may 13, 2003 from route 23 honda in pomton plains, nj. after purchasing it, i noticed that the plastic/glass moldings around the doors were were very deformed. three moldings have been fixed after 2 times being in for service, and one has yet to be fixed(waiting for part). the radio was making a squeaking noise and deformed looking, and they replaced the entire unit. on the right front tire well, there was a molding that was never screwed in properly, and began to hang down, which was replaced. the shifter has a loose stitch on it, which is becoming very sharp and can possibly cut someone. the part was put on order 3 months ago, but i was never notified of it's arrival. the driver side windshield wiper nozzle sprays directly into the wiper arm. this was brought in for service 4 times, and finally another dealership(sussex honda) ordered a new nozzle which will hopefully work. the car has a slight burning smell when i park the car after driving. i brought this to honda's attention, but of course they didn't find anything wrong with it. the car also has a slight grinding feeling that can mostly be felt between 1500 and 2500 rpms. i brought this into service 4 times and they couldn't find anything wrong(again). along with that, when i put the car in drive, after about 20 feet it makes a horrible grinding noise and feeling in the gears. the car also seems to lack the power that it should have. i know this because i had a 2003 accord lx v6 coupe, and then traded it in for a 2003 accord ex v6 coupe. the lx had a lot more power than the ex. also the lx had no wiper problems, grinding problems, or other problems that i have with the ex. overall i have found 10 defects with my car within the first month of having it. after all of these problems, and having the dealership and the honda service center hotline treat me as if i was making up these problems and that it was my fault for having these problems i will never buy another honda again! *la

the vehicle (vin:[xxx]) was purchased on 5/30/03. unfortunately we did not notice the very significant design defect until after we had purchased the car. the design defect is that this particular vehicle has very restricted visibility, particularly noted while driving. it's as if "you're looking out through slots." after my wife had a small accident in the vehicle, at least partially due to restricted visibility, we sold the vehicle, fearing worse accidents in the future. correspondence with american honda motor company has not been answered. *la information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u.s.c. 552(b)(6). *tr

i purchased a 2005 honda odessey. i requested a moon roof as a honda option. i was not told that this was not an option on the model that i had selected. i was given an after market moon roof. i went back to the dealer to have an over head dvd player installed and i was told that the main overhead beam was cut to install the moon roof and that what was left of the beam was not strong enough to hold the dvd player. i began to question the quality of work that was done to install the moon roof and i was then told it was after market. i asked the dealer and honda to certify that the installation was safe. they both refused. i have since explained my concerns about the safety of the vehicle especially in turn over situations. honda and the dealership has refused to do anything. i am very concern about the installation and i want honda to take back the vehicle since i bought honda but i was sold a honda vehicle with an after market moon roof. not only this but i don't have a honda warranty on the moonroof. the only warranty i have is with the dealership. i am currently pregnant and i already have 2 children. the minivan is a vehicle for my family. i don't think the mini van is safe in case of a crash or roll over. i say this because if the beam is not strong enough to hold a dvd player then in case of a roll over or crash the roof will come in on me and my children. *ak *bf *nm

my husband was driving my 1992 civic ex 4 dr sedan on interstate 95 northbound on 9/8/05. he had the a/c on and all windows and moonroof closed. he heard a loud "pop" and then heard wind noise. a passing motorist signaled to him to look up, opened the sun shade, and realized the entire glass moonroof was gone!! the car was purchased by me brand new and is in immaculate mechanical and structural condition. it has never been involved in an automobile accident. i contacted honda and explained what happened. they told me to take it to the nearest dealer to be inspected. i had no problems whatsoever with the moonroof. no leaks, no unusual noise, it opened and closed without hesitation. the car received regular maintenance. i am grateful that no one was behind my husband or someone could have easily been killed. honda accepts no responsibility for this. when i asked what i should have looked for to know that there was a potential problem with my moonroof, they could not give me an answer. *nm

hello - i have a 2005 odyssey that might have and others might have potential safety issues. a while back i found a loose bolt in the drivers side sliding door and another bolt that was not tightened at the factory. i am concerned that this represents a serious quality control breakdown. while my problem was addressed, since then i have had numerous other issues and in the process of filing a lemon law complaint as a result of repeated attempts to fix my vehicle. my concern is also that my dealership told me they have found six other vehicles with loose bolts in the car. if someone is in a position to do this, what else would this person potentially have done to this vehicle and others. this makes me wonder if someone at the factory was doing this as a joke or if there are other potential safety issues related to this finding. in addition to this, i have had multiple problems with the dvd/navigation system and the rear camera often stays on while moving forward. this is quite a distraction to the driver. i have been working these issues with honda customer care for the last 5 weeks with no progress. also, this vehicle has been in five times to have this looked at. i continue to have problems with this vehicle. while it was in having the dvd/nav problem looked and the rear view mirror fixed (fell off while driving down the interstate), three additional recalls were found. also, the rear view mirror could not be fixed and the windshield was replaced. had to bring it back in the following day since it was not installed correctly (had wind noise). this issue was fixed. i am now on vacation and the windshield washers stopped working. the problems that continue to mount up on this vehicle make me question its overall safety and road worthiness. *jb

took my car in for a regular oil change. hours later i received a phone call from the service advisor asking me, if i had time so he could talk to me regarding my car. i said, yes and the service advisor from honda dealership went on to tell me that i needed my transmission fluid changed, brake fluid changed, and my engine coolant changed. the total amount of cost came to $500.29 which i thought i was being ripped off. the honda service advisor also went on to tell me that i need to have my front struts replaced because they are bad. i noticed when i would make a right hand turn i would hear a squeaky noise. he confirmed that it was my front struts. i ask the service advisor how long does it normally take for struts to wear out he told me around 80,000-100,000 miles well my 2003 honda accord ex only have 48,000 miles on it. i'm assuming that i probably started off with bad struts in the beginning since i had my honda accord ex, i have had nothing but problems. now, that my car is out of warranty i'm hit with a huge fee to get struts replaced on a car which i think was bad in the first place. my honda accord ex was originally purchased by me in december of 2002. i have been the only driver of the car. at this time i would never purchase another honda accord. i used to have an 2000 honda accord ex never had a problem. since i have had this car there have been recalls on my car. i have had problems with the door latches, inside panel on passenger side coming off. sunroof rubber coming unglued. i had to have the windshield replaced bad wipers which scratched the windshield up. new radio system. trouble with the lights for the heated seats, dash board lights went out. radio lights went out. i was sold a complete lemon. i believe honda should look into my maintenance record and see all the problems i have had with this car and really consider replacing the struts for me. i do not have an extended warranty it's going to cost me $700. *jb

problem: failure of sun visor on 2006 honda civic. i recently purchased a honda civic from mission valley honda in san diego california. the car is now about 4 months old and both of the sun visors are falling apart. i know this is now a huge safety issue, but a visor falling off in a crash or during air bag deployment is something i am concerned with. on taking the car to the dealer they told us that the part is on back order because they are falling apart on many of the new civics. i am writing this because i do not know if you have been informed of the problem, and it does seem that a re-design of the part may be needed to correct the problem, and may warrant a recall. please feel free to contact me about this matter. -andrew gibbs. *nm
