might be a loose wire.

> backlight on clock cuts on and off

might be a loose wire.

> overhead light is out

could be the bulb has burnt out, or blown a fuse.

> driver door window gets stuck down

could be a faulty switch. ive had window problems in the past and it was almost always the switch.

> trunk latch is broken

could be that the trunk latch is broken, although it could be a fuse problem as well.

hondas suck, should have bought nissan. i cant direct to a good place because all mechanics are crooks. but when you find one that is less crooky i hope this helps.

I have to agree. I test drove over the weekend one of the Honda Accord Crosstours. Hondas are really getting over-complicated, especially the interior.

Wow, you must be quite the mensa candidate! The OP should donate his complicated piece of shit Honda to your organization for the intellectually challenged. Maybe with the proceeds they can send you to the Special Olympics.

Well, the new Accords have an engine that shuts off three cylinders whenever you stop accelerating and start cruising. I could feel a split second delay when I pushed on the accelerator, what happens if the computer fucks up and doesn't restart the remaining cylinders? I'm stuck with a three cylinder engine.

As far as the interior, what used to be a single knob for the climate control has turned into a whole row of buttons. Not ergonomic at all.

Take it to Willard road. The guys name is Omar. His address is 14049 Willard rd in Chantilly. Fair, honest, and good. He takes very good care of my vehicles.

Take it to the Honda dealership for service. They treat you real nice over there and charge you the fairest price!

I'd take it to Malcolm X Ave. just outside of Bolling AFB. There are cars all over that place on cinderblock "lifts" being repaired. You're bound to find one of the mechanics wandering around somewhere!

My sister has an Accord that she had major problems with, over like 10 months, She took it to Curry in Falls Church, they called her in 2 hours, said they knew what the prob was, estimated $125, fixed it, she was driving it the next day and that was 4 months ago, she's had not a sniff of trouble since....... I'd go there

That's a 'doupble input' on 'AVOID ROSENTHAL HONDA', Both 'Landmark Honda' AND 'Fairfax Honda', repair shop(s) AND new/used car sales. Have had 'chronic' problems with BOTH, sales and repairs at BOTH sites. Totally 'contradicting' themselves, way 'over protect' employees as if they 'walk on water' (1000%) while they do totally unprofessional work and trash your car 'to boot'. The truthfull, painfull 'details' are rediculous and real.
