Honda Accord 7th Generation Faults - Petrol and Diesel

Discussion in '7th Generation (2003-2008) [Acura TSX]' started by SayamaAccord, Monday 12th Dec, 2011.

  1. In a nutshell as I understand it these issues are as set out below.

    Please add any I have omitted:

    Binding brakes especially at the back - can be sticking brake pad, sticking caliper piston, and/or degraded brake hose

    Front lower arm compliance bushes - split and eventually collapse altogether so the arm falls onto the subframe

    Front anti roll bar drop links

    Rear anti roll bar drop links

    Rear anti roll bar bushes

    Clutch master cylinder squeak /click

  3. Also the tailgate motor on the tourer can fail and is very expensive to replace.

    anyone looking at this thread must realise it is not so say you will definately experiance them all. it is simply a guide as to what to look for and expect. for instance if a car has not got full dealer service history or high miles you need to check that these things are not going to sting you in the short term. all cars have there problems but you can do a few simple checks when buying a car or when looking after the one you have to minimise the problems you may encounter in the future.
