2004 Honda Accord - 1H278GCM674- Elkins Park, PA: August 29th, 2012
My car started bucking about two weeks after i had it inspected in july. Also the drive light was blinking and the check maintenance light came on. At one point i was alone and far from home and the car would not go into reverse. I contacted a mechanic i know well who told me there was a safety issue and that i should try to drive the car to the transmission place he recommended. For several miles the car bucked and i wasn't sure whether i would get there or not, but i did. Very scary. Not sure this sure happen with a car that only has 76,500 miles on it and i am the only owner.

2004 Honda Accord - 3HGCM56364G- Nashville, TN: July 6th, 2012
Today was just another day to work. I have taken this road to work for past two years with me driving. First you get off the ramp, then stop at a stop sign, then you pass under the bridge to follow the straight road to work. However, today it was different. I first took the exit ramp and went to the end of it. Stopped at the stop sign. Checked both sides to see if it was clear for me to proceed and go ahead with making a turn. It was clear so i made a left turn and went straight. However, within next 5 yards after going straight my car's steering wheel started to shake and car pulled to the left. I could not control the car since all this happened so fast and my car hit the huge cement pole which is the base of the bridge. After talking with my husband and many others, they believe that car has somehow malfunctioned. The two theories we have is either steering wheel getting locked or left wheel giving out in some manner. This was not a new road for me. I was not a phone. I was not texting. I was not distracted in anyway. The car just had its own mind today and somehow it pulled to the left. I do not know if there are others who have had this problem, but i wanted to tell my story since i am not hurt as much. If this happened while being faster, this could have been fatal.

2004 Honda Accord - 1HGCM56754A- Fort Worth, TX: June 29th, 2012
Major electrical problems began about 2 years ago. Radio display won't light, but radio/cd still plays; air conditioner cools intermittently, though compressor is working and freon is adequate; tail lights sometimes work, sometimes don't; ignition switch makes a noise as though the engine was already started when i turned the key, even though it wasn't - eventually the ignition switch had to be replaced (problem still occurs from time to time); brake calipers have always pulsed no matter how slow i come to a stop; and airbag light comes on for no apparent reason as there is not hindrance to the sensor switch mechanism below the seats.

Radio display lights are out. The panel is completely dark. The a/c-heat controls, clock, radio are all displayed on this panel. This will not let me leave the failed components in the box and won't send the message....

2004 Honda Accord - 1HGCM72594A- Toledo, OH: March 6th, 2012
The display has gone out. This is a known fact for honda. They extended the warranty. Many experience after the warranty. Circuit board is faulty and they know it, why not replace it for owners who spent money on their product. This takes away from some visibility inside vehicle. I'm told it may be a heat issue...

2004 Honda Accord - JHMCM56864C- Atlanta, GA: January 20th, 2012
On december 30, 2011 the back-light on my radio stereo as well as the a/c panel went out. This poses a safety issue because 1. During storms or bad weather, i cannot see what station to turn the radio for tornado warnings or weather updates. 2. To adjust a/c or heater settings, i must take my focus off the road to turn on the overhead light and adjust settings. 3. In weather conditions such as high fog or where you need to use a defrost, i must must take my focus off the road to turn on the overhead light and adjust settings. *tt

2004 Honda Accord - JHMCM56344C- Encinitas, CA: December 20th, 2011
My 2004 honda accord had been left parked overnight on our driveway. At about 10:30 in the morning the next day,12/18/11, i got into the car, and with my door still wide open and the car in "park", i turned on the ignition and started the motor for a 2 or 3 minute warm-up. I was on the driver seat and my wife on the passenger seat with her door also wide open. I was talking to my wife with my face turned towards her while the car warmed up. After about two minutes, i turned off the motor and pulled out the key from the ignition switch to hand it to my wife still facing her with my left side towards the steering wheel. Our house key and the car key were on the same key chain and i was handing it to my wife to lock the front door of the house. Right at that moment, the driver side airbag violently exploded with full force and with a very loud bang whipping my face and my left ear. Whatever i had in my hands (my wallet, a cd and the car keys) were all blown away and landed outside the car and i was completely deafened and disoriented by the blow and the loud explosion. For the next two hours or so, i was hurting in my left ear and was unable to hear anything with that ear. Its been more than 24 hours since that incident and my ear though not hurting as much, still has some ringing. I reported the incident to the american honda motor company but am very disappointed with their handling of this situation. They want me to have the car towed to a dealership and have it checked all at my expense. They refuse to pay for any expenses whatsoever that i may incur with regards to this incident including medical check-up. And to make matters worse, they claim that the car is out of warranty and as such they are not obligated to pay for any repairs. This is not a warranty issue, it is a serious safety matter, they cannot absolve of their responsibility. I feel totally helpless!!
