    Hi all

    I am seeing a lot of drivers having this problem. Some with few month
    old Honda accords also.
    Are the breaks really problematic? or they are not designed for severe
    After how many miles mileage one should change the breaks??

    check every 5-10k miles. repair as needed. change brake fluid per
    owners manual. there's no fixed average on mileage brake pads last
    because it depends on usage.

    What BRAKE "problem" are you specifically talking about?

    Honda BRAKES are not the best in the industry for winter durability.

    "Change"? Can't say. Depends on your driving, AND on your maintenance

    I see you live somewhere in New England. If you drive a lot, you need to
    service your BRAKES twice per year. If you drive little, once is fine.
    Lotsa pics. Let them load. It's worth it.

    Thanks. I recently bought a honda Accord 99. Brakes looks a bit
    problematic at speeds above 60 mph.
    yes u are right i am in MA.

    i had other problem, checkengine light went on. The checkup gives
    undocumented error(no error code).
    Dealer suggest that i should tigten the gas knob and the Checkengine
    light will disappear.
    do u have any idea about this.

    I had my 2004 4-cyl Accord in for its 20K service. Although the car has19K
    miles, the service manager pointed out my brake pads are almost "new." He
    said I must brake very lightly, and yes - I do.

    Are you looking at them while travelling at 60 mph? Bad move. You might
    fall off the fender and get run over.

    Or perhaps you mean there is some sort of problem that occurs above 60 mph.
    Vibration? Pads fall off? What? Try describing it.

    A trace to your IP address terminates right at your machine in East Boston,
    it appears.

    See my other reply in the thread that deals with this issue.

  9. No problems with an 1988 accord.
    Depends on your driving habits.

  10. I would check brakes at least every 20k miles. It's laso pretty easy to check
    disc brake pad wear every time you rotate your tires, every 5k miles or so.

    I had driven at least four models of Accords and never had brake problems.
    My last 92 Accord did not require any service until I changed the pads at
    100K. My current 02 Accord has not problems. I only do visual inspection
    during tire rotations.
