Oil pump, timing chain failure at 15,200 miles
By fishrman1 on


2013 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl CVT)


2013 Accord LX, CVT Auto, 15,200 miles (bought new).
A few seconds after starting the car, it made a horrendous grinding, screeching sound, with every indicator light on.
I did not drive it, and it was towed to a dealer.
It needed a new oil pump, timing chain, sprocket, etc - all covered under warranty.
The dealer had no idea why the failure occured, and had never seen this on a Honda with so few miles.
It took a week to repair, which was a major inconvenience.
The car ran fine with no problems at all prior to this incident.
I am sorry I purchased a Honda with so many other choices out there.
I was sold on their legandary reliability.
