Bad MechanicaL Design & Poor reliability

2003 Honda Accord DX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Review
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).
Suggested Improvements
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.................
