Needs some recalls
By McDewbie on
2008 Honda Accord EX 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I bought my Accord new off the lot with 2 miles on it. Have had it 2 1/2 years. I'm seeing very similar reviews to my own, only it seems my car has had the symptoms from each of the other reviews. It seems to burn 1-2 quarts of oil between oil changes( and the oil light does not come on to alert me of this), road noise including power steering is obnoxious, it's had to be in the shop for 2 weeks due to some issue with the piston timing within 35,000 miles of owning, brakes are about to need to be changed for the 2nd time. Transmission appears hang in a gear too long when climbing or descending hills. Overall, I bought it for look and reliable name of Honda, but so far I'm unimpressed.
The look. Exterior design.
Recall on brakes, inspection of oil system. Also, the exhaust tip. Mine fell off 3,000 miles out of replacement warranty and the dealership refused to replace.
