    2010 - A Retrospective Look Back At Honda 04:41

    2010 - A Retrospective Look Back At Honda

    by Recall03Accord (12/14/10) 27 views

    It is an annual rite of passage, during these waning days before the hope and promise anticipated by the hanging of a new “What Cats Teach Us” calendar yields the truth that this year will be just as crumby as the last, that we take a moment to reflect upon the year that was. A little less than six months ago, when I posted my first video about the 2003 Honda Accord and its safety hazard of a transmission, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration had 1120 complaints on file about this model. As of today (December 13, 2010) NHTSA has nearly 1300 complaints on file about the 2003 Honda Accord. Of the 1275 complaints referred to this agency, 459 fall into the "power train: automatic transmission category." Information from the NHTSA web-site: http://www.safercar.gov reveals that in the 2003 Honda Accord, catastrophic transmission failure occurs quickly and many times at highway speeds. The complaints from NHTSA are mostly similar to each other in that the vast majority of the failures happen suddenly at higher speeds and the car's occupant(s) are often unsafely jolted forward while coming to a near stop in the travel lanes. This is a serious safety issue. Coming to a near complete stop from 60 or 70 miles per hour, in some reported cases, has resulted in some injuries and will eventually result in someone's death. In April of 2004, Honda issued a recall on the automatic transmissions of Honda Accords, Odysseys, Pilots and Acura 3.2CL and 3.2TL models. According to Honda's own press release, "this condition may lead to gear breakage and possible locking of the vehicle's transmission, creating a potential safety hazard." The very same potential failures cited in the 2004 recall have become frequent for owners of these vehicles in the years subsequent to the recall and the resulting "transmission lockup", referred to in the recall, that "could result in a crash" has become a reality for many. Honda was supposed to fix the problem when it issued the 2004 recall, however, it appears the company tried to do the cheapest thing for its bottom line in an attempt to have these vehicles fail after the warranty had expired. By not fixing the problem they are putting lives at risk. While I, and thousands of other 2003 Honda Accord owners, have personally been affected by the known defects of this vehicle, from this video you will see that safety and design issues are not confined to one model or one model year, but rather are systemic to the Honda brand. Drive safely this holiday season with so many recalled Hondas on the road you will need to. Need More Information About This Issue?

    Tales From The NHTSA: Moe Rodnick Does The Bus Boogie

    by Recall03Accord (10/27/10) 14 views

    In this third episode of Tales From The National Highway Safety Administration, Moe Rodnick is back to riding public transit, as he treks the path of his daily life, all because his 2003 Honda Accord is back in the shop. While living life by a bus schedule is sometime difficult, the people Moe has met on his daily commute and the reliability and dependability of the bus, as opposed to his 2003Honda Accord, is reassuring. Hoping to “animate” some of the endless complaints about the 2003 Honda Accord, I have decided to bring to life these real complaints posted about this car on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s web-site: http://www.safercar.gov, in a new web series entitled “Tales From The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. “ For those of you who don’t already know, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has over 1200 complaints on file about the 2003 Honda Accord. Of the 1232 complaints (as of October 26, 2010) referred to this agency, 437 fall into the "power train: automatic transmission category."

    American Pickers: Mike’s Losing Pick – The 2003 Honda Accord 02:42

    American Pickers: Mike’s Losing Pick – The 2003 Honda Accord

    by Recall03Accord (10/23/10) 457 views

    American picking partners Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz are usually pretty good at spotting the hidden treasures and diamonds in the rough forgotten in the backyards, barns and garages throughout the American landscape. The Antiquearcheology duo often takes gambles in the pursuit of high returns, but they rarely make unprofitable picks. However, Mike’s 2003 Honda Accord pick proves to being a losing proposition for the Pickers. For those of you who don’t already know, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has over 1200 complaints on file about the 2003 Honda Accord. Of the 1228 complaints (as of October 23, 2010) referred to this agency, 435 fall into the "power train: automatic transmission category." Information from the NHTSA web-site: http://www.safercar.gov reveals that in the 2003 Honda Accord, catastrophic transmission failure occurs quickly and many times at highway speeds.

By not fixing the problem they are putting lives at risk and losing money for both Accord owners and Pickers alike. Need More Information About This Issue?

    Moe Rodnick, Anna May: Tales From The NHTSA

    Meet Moe Rodnick and Anna May, two dissatisfied 2003 Honda Accord owners that seem to be caricatures of anyone who ever owned this vehicle. Hoping to “animate” the endless complaints about the 2003 Honda Accord, I have decided to bring to life some of the real complaints posted about this car on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s web-site: http://www.safercar.gov, in a new web series featuring Moe and Anna.

    June Key: Tales From The NHTSA

    In this second episode of Tales From The National Highway Safety Administration, our heroine June Key shares her Honda horror story and how it led her to the "tough and cold streets."
