Honda took a big gamble with its wholesale overhaul of the popular Accord midsized sedan. The redesign includes the addition of new turbocharged engines, an available hybrid powertrain, comprehensive changes to the control layout, and standard crash-avoidance features, all wrapped in an attractive, coupe-like body. Some of the Accord's goodness stems from its 192-hp, 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.

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.

"My apple CarPlay is buzzing only when I am on the phone.

I will say something and the other person won’t say anything until a good 10 seconds later. Then they will ask if I am their still and I will say yes 4 times before they actually hear anything. I have to use speaker on phone to finish call when this happens. I have an apple 6s, Spoke to Honda technology, they had me remove and reinstall phone, did not help. Any ideas on the issue?

Turbo or supercharger

I purchased 1 quart of oil and the botton of the stick still had no oil I ended up buying 3 quarts at which approx 2.75 quarts had to be added. BTW, there was no check engine lamp or low oil indicator. I returned the car to the dealer who replaced the turbo and a host of other things. They told me that it had a pin hole in the turbo and they had to replace a lot of components. Originally they said the oil was leaking high up instead of the pan. They had to expend 11 hours of shop time to bring things back in order. I am traveling to the West Coast from Indiana and hope I will make it."
