2008 Honda Accord EX-L V6 2.5L from North America
Love the car... hate the company
The plastic parts on the center door posts melted.
The front bumper is melting in the same fashion as the plastic on the door post.
Was told door plastic is not a warrantable item. Replaced at my cost.
Was told the front bumper was also not warrantable, and that it was due to the sun shining in Arizona. Too close to another vehicles exhaust. Issue escalated to Honda America who denied my claim of defective material.
Honda America has serious issues with lack of support for the client. I cannot recommend Honda to anyone looking to purchase a new vehicle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I think you'd find the same issues with most car companies. I had the same type of issue with Nissan, which is why I won't buy another. Read through the threads on here and you'll find similar stories from virtually every manufacturer.
Car companies will never admit a defective product unless it is found on a great number of cars and then advertised as a recall. You would have done better maybe if you'd have researched your problem to see if other people have had similar experiences, and then maybe form a group for a class action suit. It's hard to win these cases, though, as you have to prove you did nothing wrong to cause the problem.

We had nothing but trouble with our Honda and will never own another one. Ford, on the other hand, has stood behind their products 100%.
When our Mustang had 100,000 miles on it, we received a letter from Ford stating that a plastic interior part might warp due to the Sun, and that if it had warped, it would be replaced FREE (and this was 6 years after buying the car, and at 100,000 miles!!). The part had NOT warped. So there was no point in taking it in. I can just imagine HONDA recalling a car at 100,000 miles for such a minor issue. We now drive only Ford and GM and have had ZERO problems with either.
