Component: ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
Complaint: LIGHTS (ELECTRICAL SYSTEM) DIM/FLICKER ANNOYINGLY WHILE DRIVING, WHEN THE RADIATOR FAN CYCLES ON/OFF.

Component: POWER TRAIN: AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION: CONTROL MODULE
Complaint: TRANSMISSION/VCM CONSTANTLY CONTINUES TO SHIFT. CAR CANNOT LOCATE CORRECT DRIVE RATIO. VERY PREVALENT WHEN DRIVING 60 MPH ON LEVEL GRADE AND NO PEDAL MOVEMENT. HOWEVER, THE TRANSMISSION AND/OR VARIABLE CYLINDER MANAGEMENT CONSTANTLY SURGING IS NOTICEABLE AT ALL SPEEDS WITH NO CHANGE IN PEDAL FORCE APPLIED. ALSO, WHEN ACCELERATING FROM A STOP SLOWLY AND A SUDDEN DEMAND TO INCREASE SPEED, THE TRANSMISSION FAILS TO DOWNSHIFT WHEN THE PEDAL IS PUSHED TO THE FLOOR AND RESTRICTS THE ENGINE RPMS.

Component: VISIBILITY: WINDSHIELD WIPER/WASHER
Complaint: WHILE DRIVING IN MODERATE RAIN SHOWERS, WATER POOLS ON DRIVERS SIDE WINDSHIELD. VERY NOTICEABLE AT SPEEDS OF 50-70 MPH. WINDSHIELD WIPERS OPERATING AT ANY SPEED ACTUALLY PULL THE POOL OF WATER FROM THE LEFT SIDE OF THE FRONT PILLAR INTO THE DRIVERS VISION ON THE DOWNSTROKE.

Component: POWER TRAIN: AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
Complaint: TRANSMISSION SHIFTING IS HARSH AND ABRUPT. WHEN DOWNSHIFTING FROM 3RD TO 2ND AND 4TH TO 3RD, IT FEELS LIKE SOMEONE IS LITERALLY SLAMMING ON THE BRAKES. WHEN UPSHIFTING AT THOSE GEARS, THERE ARE OFTEN PROLONGED DELAYS. IN ADDITION, WHILE CRUISING IN THE LOW 60S MPH RANGE, THE TRANSMISSION IS CONSTANTLY HUNTING FOR THE CORRECT GEAR.

Component: POWER TRAIN: AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
Complaint: TRANSMISSION SHIFTING IS EXCEPTIONALLY HARSH, ESPECIALLY AT LOWER GEARS (2-3 AND 3-4, AND DOWNSHIFTING AS WELL). WHEN DOWNSHIFTING, CAR FEELS LIKE SOMEONE HAS SLAMMED ON THE BRAKES. CAR ALSO FEELS LIKE IT IS CONSTANTLY HUNTING FOR THE CORRECT GEAR IN THE LOW 60S MPH. THIS IS PROBABLY THE VCM.

Component: EXTERIOR LIGHTING: HEADLIGHTS
Complaint: I OWN A 2008 HONDA ACCORD EXCEL 4 CYLINDER. WITH THE CLIMATE CONTROL ON THE HEADLIGHTS FLICKER. I HAVE TALKED WITH MANY PEOPLE AND THEY ALL SAY THIS IS NOT NORMAL.

Component: ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
Complaint: THE 2008 HONDA ACCORD EX-L NAV 4 CYLINDER SUFFERS FROM POOR HEADLIGHT PERFORMANCE. WHILE DRIVING AT NIGHT, THE HEADLIGHT INTENSITY FREQUENTLY FLUCTUATES CAUSING DISTRACTION AND REDUCING NIGHTTIME VISIBILITY. *TR MY INTERPRETATION OF THE LOCAL HONDA DEALERSHIP DIAGNOSIS IS PROVIDED BELOW. POOR HEADLIGHT PERFORMANCE IS ¿NORMAL¿ DUE TO THE OPERATION OF THE ELECTRICAL LOAD DETECTOR (ELD). THE FUNCTION OF THE ELD IS TO PROVIDE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM DEMAND INFORMATION TO THE ONBOARD COMPUTER MODULE. THE ONBOARD COMPUTER THEN USES THE PROVIDED INFORMATION TO ADJUST ALTERNATOR OUTPUT WHICH ULTIMATELY RESULTS IN FUEL SAVINGS. HONDA IS ASSUMING THAT CUSTOMERS ARE WILLING TO SACRIFICE NORMAL HEADLIGHT PERFORMANCE FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF INCREASING FUEL MILEAGE. THE OPERATIONAL DESIGN OF ONE SYSTEM PRODUCES A SIDE AFFECT IN ANOTHER SYSTEM THAT RESULTS IN A SAFETY RISK. RISKS OF OPERATING A VEHICLE WITH POOR HEADLIGHT PERFORMANCE ARE PROVIDED BELOW. 1. REDUCED VISIBILITY AND DRIVING CONCENTRATION COULD RESULT IN A COLLISION. 2. OTHER DRIVERS COULD MISTAKE A HEADLIGHT INTENSITY FLUCTUATION AS AGGRESSIVE DRIVING BEHAVIOR RESULTING IN DRIVER CONFRONTATION.
