Tailgate Motor Failure (Free of charge courtesy of extended warranty on the part)

Mileage: 116,000

How long owned: 1.5 years
Problems you've had: Engine was cutting out at idle, had to replace lambda sensor. Some bulbs in the centre console switches blew and I have no idea how to fix them, they're still out. Spare wheel well collects water for some reason. Boot does not open by key. And I threw a piston rod and destroyed the engine - to be fair this wasn't all the car's fault, I pushed it a bit too hard :( I know this looks like quite a list but I'm just trying to say everything I can think of that bugs me.


Overall marks (/10): 9/10. I've taken a point off for the lambda sensor which seems to be a common fault on the F20B6. Other than that it's spot on, comfortable interior, enough power for me to be happy when I hit the throttle, and the handling is far better than any similar sized car I've ever driven. I'm happy with it :)

Year: 2006 (56)
Mileage: 69750

How long owned: 8 months
Problems you've had: None


Overall marks (/10): 8/10 so far (may give it 9 if i decide to go for a remap in the future and am happy with it)



The reason for not giving it a 10 is the weak paint on the Accords

2.0 ivtec Sport. 2003. Mileage 90,000.

Only had the car 2 months so far.

Problems: Just a slight knock occasionaly when braking. Suspect ARB bushes. Under investigation.

Really liked the build quality, refinement when first started driving it but now im comfortable with it im appreciating the handling, gearbox and engine. ;)
8.5/10, the steering lets it down a bit as it could do with more feel and better weighting when cornering.

A very interesting idea !!

Model/spec: 7th gen Tourer Exec full spec, 2.4 iVTEC
Year: 2004 54-plate
Mileage: 80k

How long owned: 6 years (since Jan 2006)
Problems I've had:
- rear brakes keep binding (keep fixing it myself ever since the warranty expired in Sep 2007)
- clutch had to be replaced at 79k in October 2011 (fortunately the Honda Happiness price was £600 at the time)
- both lower wishbones had to be replaced in November 2010, I got a local garage to do that with OEM parts, for ~ £400
- rear bearings in the tourer are different from the saloon, thus only available from dealer at £120 each !! (I've got them but not done it yet)
- exhaust for 2.4 is also only available from dealer at ~ £250 for both boxes (did it myself)
- aircon condenser perished, dealer wanted £500 to do it, I did it myself with condenser from Unipart, for £150 incl Halfords re-gassing (and then I found a faulty relay as well, which I opened up and sprayed with switch cleaner)
- front fog lights are £200 (each) to replace at a dealer, I did both for £70 with fog lights from the USA on ebay
- rear tailgate does not open itself any more (though it will close itself)

Overall marks (/10): 6/10 .... because Honda parts and Honda labour are a shameful disgraceful rip-off

Facelift EX Tourer in Graphite with Pentas
Late 2006
170K

Owned for 3 years

Needed new clutch, manifold and the usual brake stuff.

Marks out of ten? I'd give it an 8, but with a bonus point for character.

Love the auto tailgate.... still puts a smile on my face :D

Just a shame the clutch and transmission are made of biscuits.

Been ages since I posted but hey, why not:)

Model/Spec: 2.2 Diesel Tourer Executive
Year: 2004
Mileage: 123k

How long owned: Since 10/2008
Problems you've had:
- When bought needed tailgate gas struts to be replaced. As I drive to Poland every now and then I had it done there. Same price for parts (£60 if I remember correctly) but labour cost £40 instead of £160.
- Manifold replaced under extended warranty @100k I think.
- Clutch replaced around the same mileage.
- MAF replaced.
- Few small suspension parts done over last few months (rear stabilizer rods)
Other than that its just usual wear and tear and service stuff. Well, quite thirsty this accord of mine but can not find the culprit and kinda get used to it.
Lovely car :)

Model/Spec: 2.2 ictdi Tourer executive

Year: 2008 (7th generation)

Mileage: just over 94,000 when purchased, currently just over 98,000

How long owned: 11 months

Problems you've had: Needed a left hand replacement driveshaft at purchase, had the manifold changed under warranty, uses more fuel since the manifold change.

Marks out of 10: 9 Best car we've owned. The dropped mark is for soft easily chipped paintwork and wind/road noise especially on motorways. Correct those two points and this car would have 10 out of 10 for us.

Model/Spec: 7th Gen Tourer 2.4 Exec
Year: 2003
Mileage: 102K

How long owned: 8 months
Problems you've had: Clutch master cylinder, OS ball joint, corroded heatshield on cat, sat nav DVD starting to play up, aircon blowing warm even after re-gas (service items - 4 tyres, front brake pads, 1 interim service, auxillary drive belt, brake fluid, transmission fluid).


Overall marks (/10): 8 good looking, practical, well equipped and nice to drive. Some of the service items were discressionary but I preferred to get them done, others par for the course but might get expensive.

Model/Spec: Honda Accord 2.0i ES
Year: 1999
How long you've owned: don't know to be honest :/
Mileage: 84000 miles
Problems you've had- Lambda sensor, rattling heatshield, dead battery (although it was on it's original up to 80K which isn't bad)

Marks out of 10: 8/10
Comfortable most of the time, acceptable wind and tyre noise, not exactly fast but definitely sprightly, smells nice, decent sound system, reliable for the most part and well sorted interior though a little small
