2008 HONDA ACCORD PURCHASED NEW AT GARY FORCE HONDA BOWLING GREEN KY. FIRST ISSUE: COLD START RATTLE, DEALER REPLACED ATC ACTUATOR, PROBLEM CORRECTED. HAVE REPLACED BRAKES ON THE CAR 4 TIMES. MOST RECENTLY REPLACED APPROXIMATELY 1 YEAR AGO AND NOW WHEN BRAKES ARE APPLIED THE STEERING WHEEL VIBRATES WORSE THAN A ROAD WAGON. AT 70,000 MILES OIL LIGHT CAME ON, CHECKED OIL AND NONE WAS ON THE STICK. ADDED OIL, TOOK THE CAR TO DEALER, THEY REPLACED VTC ACTUATOR BUT IT DID NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. COMPLAINED AGAIN AND THEY PERFORMED OIL CONSUMPTION ANALYSIS ONLY TO TELL ME IT WAS USING LESS THAN ONE QUART PER ONE THOUSAND MILES AND THAT WAS THE INDUSTRY STANDARD. A FEW MONTHS LATER I BECAME MORE IRRITATED ABOUT THE PROBLEM AND COMPLAINED AGAIN. THEY PERFORMED ANOTHER OIL CONSUMPTION ANALYSIS TO TELL ME IT WAS USING MORE THAN IT WAS PREVIOUSLY BUT LESS THAN ONE QUART PER 1000 MILES AND WOULDN'T DO ANYTHING. CURRENTLY THE CAR HAS 100000 MILES ON IT AND YES, THE WARRANTY JUST EXPIRED AND IT'S USING ONE QUART PER 1200 MILES. I WROTE HONDA OF AMERICA A LETTER AND COMPLAINED. THEY CALLED BUT OTHER THAN KIND WORDS, THEY DID NOTHING. OH AND HAVE I MENTIONED THE HEAD LIGHTS.... THEY BLINK WHEN THE HEAT OR AIR IS ON. I MUST NOT FORGET THAT THE LEATHER ON BOTH THE ARM REST AND CONSOLE HAS BUBBLED UP BUT NO SIGNS OF WEAR OR DAMAGE AROUND THE BUBBLES. AND LET ME NOT FORGET THE MOST RECENT ISSUE: NOW OFTEN TIMES WHILE SETTING COMPLETELY STILL AT A STOP LIGHT AND/OR GOING DOWN THE ROAD I HEAR A CLICKING SOUND IN THE STEERING COLUMN. I AM NOT TURNING THE STEERING WHEEL WHEN I HEAR THIS NOISE. IT JUST STARTS CLICKING, KIND OF LIKE AN ELECTRONIC CLICK COMING FROM THE STEERING COLUMN. OH WHAT A PIECE OF JUNK HONDA MADE WHEN IT BUILT THE 2008 ACCORD. PAID 30,000 FOR IT AND I'M SADLY DISAPPOINTED.
