My experience with this car has been far from the perception og Hondas go forever, are reliable and great quality.
We are experiencing the well known problems of excess oil consumption & timing chain issues. It seems the design of the engine & car makes it very dificult & costly to repair this requiring about 14hours of Labor according to our Honda Dealer. This car usues the most oil of any car i ever owned (3L per 5K) and has cost the most to maintain this year at so far $2000! Now This $2000+!!! all at 80,000 miles (130K Km).
Honda needs to address this common problem witha recall or extended warranty as most cars that need a timing Belt are well under $1000 to repair. As for the Accords common consumption of 1lite of oil per 1500 miles I think is shit!
I have had several vehicles that went over 150,000 miles using less oil over 10,000 miles.
Not what I expected from the manufacturers reputation for quality, durability and reliability.................
