Numerous consumer complaints continue to emerge from those who own or lease a 2017-2020 Honda Accord. Complaints about faulty braking systems, poor visibility, and other issues are on the rise, but the majority of complaints concern powertrain and engine issues. Lagging transmissions, shaking and shuddering while the vehicle changes gears, and other disconcerting power train problems have prompted many Honda customers to voice their concerns about the safety of these vehicles.
The owner of a 2018 Honda Accord described hot the transmission would experience violent upshifting at low speeds, such as taking off from a parking lot. The issue has persisted on multiple occasions, and the dealer has not been able to diagnose or resolve the issue. Similar complaints of violent shifting and shuddering at low speeds have been reported, with some customers experiencing stalling while the vehicle is in motion. While several safety recalls have been issued that affect these vehicles, even customers who receive the fuel pump replacement continue to experience transmission issues.
