I've got 31000 miles on a 2.0 sport, 2019 and began hearing a humming noise on the road. In addition, I also began hearing a dull roaring noise on braking.

Dealer said I had a bad right wheel bearing, and rotors were worn. The bearing is under warranty, the brakes, he maintained, were not.

Anyone else had a similar issue? Was the bad bearing a factor in the worn brakes?

This is way too early for this kind of crap. This is my 4th Accord, and I've never encountered this kind of thing before.

Ultimately, the dealer agreed to eat the cost of the brake repair, though the rotors were just turned, not replaced.

Thanks for any info.

Fairly new model vehicle... Quirks and other issues are realistically to be expected🤷🏾‍♂️ The warranty worked as intended, which is a blessing.

Side note - Bought a 2005 GMC SIERRA Crewcab brand new back in 04. Brake booster was bad, warranty covered it, I had the vehicle for 15 years without any other brake booster related issues 170+ thousand miles before I sold it.

After Looking at some of these Brakes and seeing what has been happening on Other Models & Manufactures from all over . .
It seems We are being Had !

Yes, Your Correct to say None of these Type of Brakes Issues never were a " Thing " Well Humans ~ I'm saying it's Here and It's a Thing !

Now what to do about this ~ BS . .

Taking into Acct. all the Items we are also seeing about Corroded Wires , Bad Grounds , Early Death to Batteries
Steering Racks Dying ( Most of these are Poor Coatings ) No Coated Wire .. **** they place Tin Coating on wires for 6K Water Scooter , 8K Motorcycle
any and all Repairs . .

Many Cars & Trucks get Gold Plated Wire Connection Surfaces inside Doors !

It Looks Like the Quality of Manufacturing has Taken another Big - I going to Screw Puppies Till Every One Screams , so Start Screaming - cause it is Total BS . .
I Caught another Auto Maker , Claiming the Little Tiny slots in Rear Brake _ Puck Seals were let Ai r Out ... WHAT _ Total BS
seeing these Area's get Covered with Brake Grease . . SS Ring is Meant to Hold Seal in Groove ( NOT Let in Water ) HELLO !

Other Issue are all these Young Designers are Idiots !

When secondary Vendors Blow that Type of Smoke Up Their BUTTS - then tell them it's going save U .53 cents on every Brake Caliper , They Bite On IT !
They Wrap Their Lips Around It ! LOL - Their Idiots

We should be doing them , those Designers with Idiot Video's a Posting them ~ Like A HOG ROAST ~

You may or May NOT ~ Remember
Me going Off American Workers on Assemble Line - Rushing Crap out thee Door
Missing Inner Wheel Well by 1" with Body & Fender Reinforcement - that also Acts as Gutter Control for Sand & Grit . .
Thin I stopped at this Blog , **** No . . I got Kicked Off 3 Others for Smashing It in ~ Their Faces . . ( Here's a Big Pie )

Then I took it to Honda & Unions - asking them - What H was Going On - were Their Workers Drunk ?
Were There Workers - Rushing so Fast they couldn't take a Pee , Pee Break or Just Plain Weren't Trained as to Where & What H it Meant
to Place the Freaking Fender Lip Bead in Correct Gutter Control Area . . .

This is probably not going to apply to you since you’ve put quite a bit of distance your vehicle. But, when the pandemic started and we came out of lockdown where I live I forewarned my advisors (I was a service manager) to be aware of the flood of people with breaking issues. Especially squeaky brakes or “lot rot” rotors. Vehicles aren’t meant to sit for long periods of time. Especially outside. Sure enough, I was spot on. We had to warranty quite a few vehicles that had Premature wear. Though warranty would only let us do rotors for the first 12-15k. I did get some in the 20-30k range covered under goodwill. Ask for a goodwill assistance from Honda. If they say no. Open a case with Honda. They’ll probably split the difference for you.

Also, consider that they’ll try to turn the rotors before replacing it if they goodwill it for you.

Is/was there any documentation from Honda (TSB, etc.) regarding this brake issue that could be referenced to when owners have this issue? I am not driving my car a lot (8k miles @ 33 months owning) and have noticed when I wash the car I get some loud squeaking coming from brakes right after. Noise goes away quickly (as in next time brakes are applied) and I've only noticed it after a wash.

No, there was not a service bulletin referencing this. It was more just communication between the DPSMs and managers. It’s honestly probably common not matter the brand. I can’t say I noticed it more in accords vs other vehicles. I don’t remember civics having the issue. But, the heavier vehicles all did.
