What’s wrong with 2013 – 2015 Honda Accord starter motors?

We believe that 2013 – 2015 Honda Accord starter motors suffer from design defects that can lead to their premature failure. As a result, the vehicles can fail to start.

What is a starter motor?

A starter motor is a device that rotates a vehicle’s internal-combustion engine. This rotating initiates the engine’s operation and allows the vehicle to start.

Why aren’t 2013 – 2015 Honda Accord starter motors working properly?

Consumers have reported that their vehicles’ starter motors are prematurely failing, leading to general failure of the product and making it difficult to start their cars.

Are there any other Honda Accord starter problems? Yes.

In addition, 2013 – 2015 Honda Accord batteries are prone to premature wear. After the batteries have worn down, they lack sufficient current to power the defective starter motor or handle the general power duties of the vehicle. As a result, vehicles can fail to start or even lose power and stall during operation.

Some customers are voicing their concerns online. Their comments include:

“Bought a Honda Accord Coupe V6 last year because I thought a Honda would be reliable. Not reliable at all! It will take the car two or three times to actually start! It will make a loud grinding noise which sounds to be the starter not functioning correctly. I had the battery replaced and the starter replaced by a very reputable dealer, but it still will not start on occasion! It is very annoying and unreliable!”

“My 2013 Honda Accord Sport is used to run my business. I bought it new and 2 months ago it started hesitating to start. I was worried by the ‘all of a sudden’ issue, so I took it to Honda to see what the problem was. THE STARTER! They charge over $1000 to fix it!!!”

“Purchased my new Accord EX in July 2015…In December of ’15 I was driving home on a medium heavy traffic and I approached an intersection and signaled to turn left…As I started to turn, the car lost all power and turned off. In traffic. I felt it go out and tried to keep going by pumping on the gas pedal like crazy but it didn’t change. So I quickly pressed the start button to turn it back on and pumped the gas to get it out of the intersection.”
