Some 2003-07 U.S.- and Mexican-built Accords(beginning with Vin# 1HG or #3HG) with four-cylinder engines may exhibit a vibration through the steering wheel when the brakes are applied. As you might expect, Honda attributes the condition to excess thickness variation in the front rotors. Machining the rotors with an on-car lathe and replacing the front pads with a revised set ( Part No. 45022-SDA-A51) with new-formulation friction material should eliminate the bad vibes immediately.

Some 2000-06 Ford Focus models may exhibit excessive vibration while idling, especially when the transmission is in Reverse. Ford attributes the condition to gravel, rocks, ice or snow lodging in the rear engine roll restrictor. Cleaning out the restrictor and installing a special shield (Part No. 2M5Z-16102-AA) over it should prevent further trouble.
