Honda Accord owners manuals
- The Accord model from 2013 to 2017 has received many owner complaints regarding power steering loss, battery failure, and hesitation from the automatic transmission. 2013 and 2014 Accords, in special, seem prone to faulty starter motors and high engine oil consumption.
- Honda has recalled a number of Accords from 2013 to 2016 due to a defect in the battery sensor case, which can produce an electrical short and may account for some of the battery malfunction and no-start issues.
- The eighth-generation Accord sedan and coupe from 2008 to 2012 have got numerous complaints about excessive brake wear and sound, high oil consumption, engine misfires, and air conditioning problems. The oil consumption and misfire issues seem to be made by damaged piston rings.
The Honda Accord is a range of cars produced by Honda since 1976, known for its four-door sedan model, which has been one of the best-selling vehicles in the U.S. as 1989. The Accord nameplate has been used worldwide by coupes, station wagons, hatchbacks, and crossovers.
The Accord was launched in 1976, initially as a compact hatchback. The following year the lineup was extended to include a sedan, coupe, and wagon. At the end of the 1990s, the sixth-generation Accord developed into an intermediate car, with different bodies as a response to its rivals.
In 1982, the Accord became the first car from a Japanese maker to be built in the United States; achieving considerable success, being the best-selling Japanese car for sixteen years (1982–97), with over ten million vehicles sold. Many road tests, past and present, consider the Accord as one of the world's most reliable cars.
The Accord can be powered by a 192-hp turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine or by the more powerful 252-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder which can be paired with either a six-speed manual or a 10-speed automatic. The Accord's ride is firmly controlled achieving a winning balance among a sports sedan and a practical family car.
