Honda Padding the dealers pocket
By ramjet1 on


2008 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Great car with two noted exceptions.
Road noise.
As the top model for the Honda line I expected it to be quieter. My Nissan Frontier pick-up has a quiter cockpit. Exception #2 putting a rubber timing belt on an the V6 engine is planned obsolesence, and requiring it to be replaced at 60,000 miles.
All this does is pad the Honda dealers pockets. Why is it necessary for Honda to give back money to the dealer? They build a great car but engineeer in a requirement that forces you back to the delaer every 60K to change the belt. That change is $700 + in 2011.

Best Features

Performance, road holding.

Worst Features

Put a timing chain on the V6 in stead of the elastic band.
