Did they fix the brakes or not? You contradict yourself.

Honda redesigned the Accord in 2008. 2008 and 2009 model year cars have the premature wear issue with the rear brakes. The issue was tied to the EBD system and the use of undersized, soft compound rear brake pads that are specific to the 2008 and 2009 cars. As part of the lawsuit Honda settled they agreed to reprogram the EBD system and replace the rear brakes on the car at that time with the same OEM pads (one time replacement). Many owners switched to harder compound aftermarket pads and have had good wear results after this fix.

In 2010 the Accord had a mild redesign and the EBD system was redone and larger rear brakes were added. 2010+ models have had no issues with the rear brakes.

So, the problem doesn't exist on the 2010+ cars, so it has been fixed. They minimized the problems on the 2008 and 2009 models, but they are still prone to more rapid then normal wear on the rear brakes. The issue is minimized enough that most people don't consider it an issue given the rest of the car is pretty much rock solid.

I'm still driving the 1991 Honda Accord I purchased in January 1991. Have always had front brakes and rotor turning episodes. My next car will be a Toyota Camary.

My mother wants a 2010 Crosstour. Are these okay as well? They seem like they are just Accords, but I'm guessing the engine/transmission may differ.

Why would you want a Camry after having a reliable Accord for so long?
