While this iteration of the Honda Accord remains an excellent midsized sedan overall, gas mileage is not as good as that of the previous model. This Accord still has a generous backseat, however both the four- and six-cylinder versions are more powerful than before. Stability control was made standard in all trim levels and crash-test results are impressive. We tested both a four-cylinder LX-P model and a six-cylinder EX-L.

Thomas P., VA (2010 Honda Accord EX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"Rear brakes pads wore unevenly because the slider pins dodn't slide to balance the wear so they scored one side of the rotor. Regular maintenance of the slider pins would have prevented this but this was not an item noted in the maintenance and done by the Dealer on checkups except for the most expensive long interval check."

"This car chews through brakes. Have had to replace rotors multiple times over the life of the car (9 years 89k miles). This January in the first half of the month I had routine service (new pads) on my front brakes and at that time the back brakes pads were fine. At the end of the next month I brought the car in for state inspection and it failed due to the back brakes - apparently the calipers on the back left brake had gotten stuck, chewed through the pad and wrecked the rotor."

"A car that is well taken care of and garage kept shouldn't leak and burn oil in 3 1//2 years. There may have been an unannounced recall on the oil burning problem. We've not been contacted but I have read a few items"

"the car is leaking/burning oil. it gets low on oil at the point that the user indicator is at 60%. low enough that we have to add a quart"

"Car burns through a quart of oil every 6000 miles. There is no sign of a leak. Dealer said they wanted me to bring car in every 1000 miles after a oil change to monitor. I talked to various mechanics and they recommended an oil additive which I just tried a short while ago. To early to make determination"

Thomas B., FL (2010 Honda Accord EX-L 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"This was covered by my extended warranty, not a Honda warranty. Fist it was working well, then got very noisy"

David H., NY (2010 Honda Accord EX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"Fan was noisy. Got sick of it so reluctantly took to dealer. They swapped out the blower for free but they did some trickery and blamed it on something else in the climate control system that was covered under recall. Kinda sketchy but greed took over. Honda has had their pound of flesh out of me. Figured I was due"

"Running rough"

Allyson C., TX (2010 Honda Accord EX-L 3.5-L V6)

"I believe the Cat Converter failed due to the piston rings leaking oil. Honda repaired the engine but would not cover the Converter. Second time for the engine repair."

Jerry L., OH (2010 Honda Accord EX-L 3.5-L V6)

"I believe the catalytic convertor became dysfunctional relatively prematurely(at 104000 as the VCM led to excess oil consumption ( Honda had to replace small block). Honda has accepted no responsibility for this"

Other/unsure

"Airbag system light came on, which indicated that the overall system had stopped working. It took almost a week for our dealer, in conjunction with Honda of America, to diagnose that it was a broken harness in the passenger seat. The problem still occurs very infrequently, implying a bad connection somewhere in the path to the control unit."
