08 EX oil burner
By Art Gopfert on


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


Bought this in 9/08 and was in the shop constantly. My biggest concern was the oil usage, one qt every 1500 miles. Honda's official response after monitoring its consumption for 3 mo. was "as long as it didn't burn one qt every 1000 miles, it was normal". That's their official response, and that was not coming from the dealer, that was HONDA. Other concerns: one burned out cat converter, (daaa wonder why), 4 tires replaced due to vibration at hwy speeds, never did solve the vibration. 2nd gear syncros not messing without a grind and missed shift. (no it was not my shifting expertise, Honda) I was told by Honda that the oil burning would go away, maybe. Ya, right! I sold this gem 3 mo ago.
