The latest Honda Accord stands out as a comfortable, roomy, and efficient midsized sedan that's nice to drive and easy to live with. While it doesn't have the pizzazz of some competitors, the four-cylinder Accord remains competitive in this class. The Accord is also available with a spirited and economical V6, or as a conventional hybrid (the plug-in model was discontinued for 2016).

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2017 Honda Accord owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

In-car Electronics

CD or DVD players, radio, speakers, GPS, communication system (e.g., OnStar), display screen freezes or goes blank, phone pairing (e.g. Bluetooth), voice control commands, steering wheel controls, portable music device interface (e.g., iPod/MP3 player), backup or other camera/sensors.

What Owners Say

Backup or other camera/sensors

"All of the warning accessories would not go off and had to be reprogramed"

Anonymous, CT (2017 Honda Accord EX-L 2.4-L 4 Cyl)
CD player

"CD player over heats and shuts down on hot days"

Anonymous, CA (2017 Honda Accord Sport 2.4-L 4 Cyl)
Display screen freezes up

"Display would freeze. restart of the car would solve it. Took into dealer and they reset and reflashed the firmware. Has been fine since"

Anonymous, MN (2017 Honda Accord Touring 3.5-L V6)
Display screen goes blank

"The top screen goes blank (black), and when it happens all the entertainment buttons on the steering wheel become useless, this happened after a month of driving, I just gotta kill the engine and restart the car and it's on again, and it happens so randomly too"

Fouad B., IA (2017 Honda Accord EX-L 2.4-L 4 Cyl)
In-dash navigation system (GPS)

"The compass read wrong-i.e. North became South; East became west; after approximately 5 Kms the compass reset itself. The screen went black and I had to restart the car to reboot the system; although Honda dealer attempted updates, the system would not take them. Eventually, Honda agreed to replace the whole system"

Anonymous, ON (2017 Honda Accord Touring 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"At random times, but more frequently, it gets lost, usually thinking it is going at right angles to its actual direction. This happens more frequently in some locations than others. Also on two occasions, it simply hasn't turned on at all. It seems unlikely that I will be able to get it fixed until it fails reliably"

William J., CA (2017 Honda Accord Touring 3.5-L V6)
Phone pairing (e.g., Bluetooth)

"My phone says it is connected but the car says not"

Anonymous, OH (2017 Honda Accord EX-L 3.5-L V6)

Body Integrity

Squeaks, rattles, wind noises, loose or cracked seals and/or weather-stripping, air and water leaks.

What Owners Say

Squeaks or rattles

"On dash above info.. system"

Anonymous, ME (2017 Honda Accord EX-L 3.5-L V6)

"Loud rear deck and trunk rattlig when music with deep bass is played due to a OEM sub-woofer and improper sound isolation. There is a TSB 17-006"

Anonymous, MI (2017 Honda Accord Touring 3.5-L V6)

"Air duct to rear seat, runs under center console, was improperly installed and clamp came loose creating rattle at a specific speed"

Anonymous, TX (2017 Honda Accord EX 2.4-L 4 Cyl)
Wind noise

"It is evident when driving at higher speeds"

Anonymous, ME (2017 Honda Accord EX-L 3.5-L V6)

"I accidentally, and unknowingly, rolled down the passenger side rear window about a quarter of the way when I parked the vehicle. I didn't notice the lowered window when I got back in the car. When I reached about 35 mph I started hearing a sound like a flat tire or a blown head gasket. I was on my way to the shop when I discovered the lowered window"

Anonymous, TX (2017 Honda Accord EX-L 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"Ended up being the cabin air filter was not installed correctly from the factory. Was re-installed correctly and problem was solved"

Anonymous, MN (2017 Honda Accord Touring 3.5-L V6)

What Owners Say

"steering does not center, no help from dealer. believe the issue is tires"

Anonymous, OH (2017 Honda Accord EX-L 2.4-L 4 Cyl)
Shocks or struts

"Less than 2500 mikes had to replace whole strut"

Anonymous, TX (2017 Honda Accord Touring 3.5-L V6)

Electric System

Alternator, starter, hybrid battery and related systems, regular battery, battery cables, engine harness, coil, ignition switch, electronic ignition, distributor or rotor failure, spark plugs and wires failure.

What Owners Say

Headlights

"The design of the headlights PROHIBITS the low beams from illuminating any object over 5 foot off the ground within 20 feet. If I drive up to a street sign at night - the low beams will not be bright enough to read the sign. I have to put on my high beams to illuminate anything higher than 5 foot - IT IS ANNOYING and I feel it is also DANGEROUS. The Dealership could do nothing about it even when I returned the car with my complaint. I had already signed the lease - I won't do a Honda Accord agai"

Deb P., IN (2017 Honda Accord EX-L 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

"Headlights illuminated too low. Dealer had to raise up headlights"

Anonymous, CT (2017 Honda Accord Sport 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

Transmission Minor

Gear selector or linkage, leaks, transmission computer, transmission sensor or solenoid, clutch adjustment, rough shifting, slipping transmission.

What Owners Say

Rough shifting

"Not sure rough shifting is the exact problem. The car exhibited similar "JUDDER" problem as my 2015 Accord. Honda Service confirmed the problem describing it as "vibrating at low RPM". Honda claims it is normal condition when the vehicle goes into valve pause mode and drops cylinders due to the VCM System. Vibration is worse than 2015 "JUDDER" problem, both observed from 28 mph and 50 mph. In retrospect I was correct... Honda does not know what is causing the problem or has no interest in s"

Anonymous, NH (2017 Honda Accord EX-L 3.5-L V6)
Transmission computer

"The transmission began to run rough and then wouldn't shift. The service department changed something electrical and the transmission began to run correctly again"

Anonymous, CA (2017 Honda Accord Touring 3.5-L V6)

Climate System

Blower (fan) motor, A/C compressor, condenser, evaporator, heater system, automatic climate control, refrigerant leakage, electrical failure.

What Owners Say

Heater system

"One must set the temperature to 82 to get any heat heat at all, and then reset it manually tolow 70s to get any cooling. The Honda dealer seems to think this is acceptable behavior"

William J., CA (2017 Honda Accord Touring 3.5-L V6)

Paint/Trim

Paint (fading, chalking, cracking, or peeling), loose interior and exterior trim or moldings, rust.

What Owners Say

Paint (fading, chalking, cracking, or peeling)

"I found 2 paint chips already, one on the front of the hood and the rear passenger door"

Fouad B., IA (2017 Honda Accord EX-L 2.4-L 4 Cyl)

Body Hardware

Power or manual windows, locks and latches, tailgate, hatch or trunk, doors or sliding doors, mirrors, seat controls, safety belts, sunroof, convertible top.

What Owners Say
