Default 2003 TSB for brakes

I have a 2003 Accord sedan 4 cyl. The brakes are feeling a little funky
right now (spongy and a little lower pedal). I remember seeing something in
this group about issues with the front brakes on these.

Any info would be great. I have 6.2K miles......

I had mine done at 30,000k. The rotors were warped and the pads worn
out. They covered it under warranty.

You are lucky--your warranty is still in effect. Take it to the dealer and
have them fix the problem before the warranty runs out.

and installing a newer material brake pad.

Why post? Get it in the shop. If you don't like your dealers work or
answers, then call the Regional Manager. Honda is a real stickler on
customer satisfaction.

I know. Just getting the ammunition before I went in. I just had an issue
with my 2002 Grand Cherokee with the front brakes. Found a TSB for the
issue. When I referenced it by number, they were pretty agreable about
replacing the rotors, pads and calipers on the spot.

Unfortunately, in their infinite wisdom, Honda has decided not to publicly
announce TSBs. I guess not telling anyone and letting the owners guess
involves less work. I think they started this in 2000. I think unless
someone getting sued, chances are you won't see a TSB anytime soon. You
could get lucky at www.alldata.com

They have this on brakes.

My 2002 Grand Cherokee had a major issue. They ended up replacing the
rotors, pads and calipers. It seems the calipers were not releasing all the
way causing the rotors to overheat and warp. Brakes were shot at 8K. The
pedal was like mush.

Since their TSB covers 1999-2003, I have wonder why it is not a recall.
