This version of the Honda Accord stands out as a comfortable, roomy, and efficient midsized sedan. It's also nice to drive and easy to live with. When matched with the smooth continuously variable transmission, the standard Accord's 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine squeezes out an excellent 30 mpg overall and 40 on the highway. That's better than most smaller compact cars and even some subcompacts.

Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for over 300,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2021 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

What Owners Say

Backup or other camera/sensors

"my backup camera stopped working suddenly. It was not repairable and cost $600 to replace which I thought was excessive. Whoever supplied the camera should have provided a longer warranty. It seems to me that failing after 4 years was not acceptable."

R P., MD (2014 Honda Accord EX-L 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"My backup camera stopped working altogether out of the blue a couple of months ago. Luckily, I had purchased the extended warranty on this car, but I still had a $100. deductible. I would have been extremely upset if I had to pay full price for replacing a pretty new back-up camera, but this is just annoying and worrisome. Honda's reliability is slipping, in our opinion We currently own my 2014 Accord, my husband's 2012 Civic and my son's 2013 Pilot. The Civic hasn't been as much trouble but seems cheaper and less well-made than Honda of the past. We won't be buying any more Hondas."

It is buggy, annoying, and I simply gave up trying to get it to recognize what I am saying. Even the icons for the phone controls on the steering wheel are not intuitive and hard to understand. I just press buttons until something works (and I work in IT, so I can figure things out). I am considering the Honda Ridgeline truck only because it has Apple Carplay which I hope is better than the garbage stock software on Honda's infotainment system.

"I had problems with the parking brakes and the callipers. After a heated discussion there was grudging admittance that both of these items were covered under my extended Honda warranty. The dealer and the Honda Warranty office became more flexible when I asked a) for the return of all replaced parts b) I noted that I was a member of the Automotive Protective Association, which provides the use of a lawyer and an automotive mechanic to intervene when necessary. As well I requested a meeting with the Shop Manager. I was willing to come to this meeting with a copy of my extended warranty and my full service record. The next morning my Serviced Rep, with the head of the dealer's extended warranty department, got Honda to honour its extended warranty contract. I was told that only a small percentage of claimants get their full extended warranty coverage as they back off pursuing their claims after the first rejection."

"The callipers on the rear brakes were broken, rendering the rear brakes useless. I didn't notice the problem because it wasn't obvious during the city driving that I do. I took the car in because the hand brake had so much play in it that it wasn't holding. That's when I was told that the rear callipers were shot and and needed to be replace and the rotors would have to be planed because the callipers had gouged them."

"After about 2 years of ownership of my 2014 Honda Accord I noticed pulsation/vibration when ever I applied my brakes. I am easy on my brakes and am not an aggressive driver. Every two years I had break jobs which included brake pad replacement and resurfacing the rotors. I also had the brake oil replaced. However, I still constantly feel the pulsating vibration when ever I apply the brakes. I told the Honda technician at my local Honda dealership about the pulsating/vibration when I apply my brakes and he told me it is normal in Honda Accords and that I should have my rotors resurfaced at least yearly. very costly. I think there is a defect in the Honda Accord rotors including the material they are made out of causing this constant untimely costly repairs. My brakes pulsate/vibrate as of today."

"Started having trouble about 1 year after purchases. Problem of starting lasted about 3 month before we decided to replace starter. It would do nothing when turning the ignition key. But if you turned key several times it would start. After checking all connection and terminals we decided to replace starter. No problems since."

"The car failed to start using the push button starter on several occasions. I thought it was the battery at one point but sent. I took it to the dealership and they told me it was my starter. I had it replaced."

"Starting the Accord became very unreliable. Most times it started w/o a problem. Sometimes though it took a dozen tries over a 10 minute period. Honda Service Dept. is replacing the starter today for $800"

"We took our 2014 Honda Accord into the dealer for routine maint. (oil, tire rotation) and the Service Rep at the Honda Dealer told us the batter was leaking and had eaten through the batter cable. It was 2.5 years old. Due to miles, it wasn't covered under warranty. They replaced the batter and cleaned up the cable - charging for both. 6 days later the starter died, stranding us in a parking lot 30 miles from the dealer. We had to pay for towing to the dealer, the Mfgr paid for the starter"

"Had growing issue this year with starting that turned out to be old battery (4 yo battery, so was due for replacement) and, more significantly, a starter motor failure at 70,285 miles. This was not covered by the warranty so parts ($520.09) and labor ($202.50) for a total of $723. I have never had a starter motor failure in any car that I have owned even up to over 200K miles. If my starter failed, I wonder how many other Honda starters fail this early"

What Owners Say

Air or water leaks

"Water leaking in during rain storm, driver's door seal likely weatherstripping issue as that is where the water stain was visible."

Anonymous, NY (2014 Honda Accord EX-L 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"Water would leak into trunk only when actively opening trunk and would leak in same spot on trunk floor. Took to Honda they could not find leak. They said water was ran but no leak evidenced. I told them only leaks when actively open trunk they did not seem to understand. Returned to dealer a couple of times with no success. Finally I removed trunk lid liner and carefully checked whenever it rained which in Oregon is a lot. I found leak coming from trunk camera. Had to take car in for ATS Actuator issue so told them to also check camera leak. Honda had car for 4 rainy days. At pickup told me could not find leak. So I had service person stand by when they returned my car and I opened trunk. Sure enough trunk lid leaked upon actively opening at same spot I noticed before. Service person could not deny leak. I also had them physically feel water around camera area. They kept car to fix now that problem area was located. Picked up. Not fixed. Returned car to fix agian and finally repaired correctly. Hate excuses well water leaks are hard to find. I found it easily. Luckily was still on warranty or would of cost me hundreds of $$$. Accords just dont have reliablity and accountability"
