2009 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Few weeks after buying it- I had started to regret it- the exhaust was oily black soot. I took it in to be inspected and they said everything is fine because it passed emissions testing. LOL! Later, when I did casual inspection of the oil level, I noticed that it was dropping- but wasn't certain because I wasn't strict about it. I had attributed it to careless oil change-out. Long story short- I'm undergoing an oil consumption test because it consumed 1.5 qt in 7k mi. Car has 32k mi. I have little faith in them because they showed me Honda's acceptable consumption: 1 qt per 1000 miles.How's that for reliability? You think the car will pass ULEV that it claims drinking that much oil?

Best Features

I love the sunroof. I hate the uncomfortable seats. No problems with brakes, yet (only that they occasionally squeak when I tap them)

Worst Features

Honda needs to step up and take care of problems- mainly the oil consumption, loss of coolant, and also the rattling of outside components
