Honda Accord - Honda Motor Company

Consumers have a right to expect that the vehicles they buy are safe for them to drive, and no one wants to discover that the vehicle they chose has been recalled due to a defective part or design. Unfortunately, many Honda Accord owners have experienced just that, with multiple recalls for various defects over recent years.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is recalling 2010-2013 Honda Accord models for defects including incorrectly installed replacement air bags, air bag inflator issues, ignition circuit coupler failure, battery sensor failure, and possible fuel tank leaks. Below are some of the recalls issued for specific Honda Accord models:

Lawsuit Subject: If a defective part or system like the ones listed above causes a serious injury accident or if a driver or passenger is killed as a result of a collision caused by one of these issues, the automotive manufacturer could be held liable as a result. It is clear that Honda must place a higher focus on consumer safety and should prevent these safety hazards from occurring in their vehicles.


Many of the issues listed above could be deadly if an airbag fails to deploy, if the airbag inflator ruptures, the engine stalls suddenly, or if the driver’s visibility is obstructed. These serious and potentially fatal consequences should not be tolerated by consumers who expect the vehicles they purchase to be safe from harmful defects.


If you are the owner of a Honda Accord model year 2010, 2011, 2012, or 2013, Honda should send you a notice alerting you of the recalls and sending you instructions for the repair or replacement of the defective parts. You can also check for defects for your specific vehicle by its vehicle identification number (VIN) on Honda’s website. You should immediately follow all instructions and secure the necessary repairs as soon as you are notified.
