How long owned: 1 month
Problems you've had: cracked manifold, rear anti roll bar bushes, seized rear caliper, HTF not working
Unsure if the clutch has ever been replaced.
Overall marks (/10): 8/10
Designed to be an executive high mileage cruiser which it does perfectly. I love all the luxuries however it could have been given a bit more power in the engine considering its a 2.2 Turbo Diesel

Model/Spec: Honda Accord 1.8 Vtec Sport
How Long Owned: 10 Days
Problems you've Had: * Knocking from a few bushes and ball joints (these are just usual wear and tear and am currently seeking the replacement parts.)
* Slight grinding in 2nd Gear - (Fixed by changing transmission fluid and draining and flushing clutch fluid )
Overall Marks (/10): 9/10 would get the full 10 if she was cheaper on the important bushes and ball joints ect. but overall a truly fantastic car.

Model/Spec: EX 2.2
How long owned: about 5 months
Problems you've had: None whatsoever as yet.
Overall marks (/10): 8
Nice to drive if you're not in a rush. The steering doesn't seem to feel quite right, and I find that when I've got the seat in the most comfortable position, I slide around on the leather when I go around bends a bit quickly. I think my previous 6th Gen 2.0 Exec handled better.
I get just over 50mpg out of it, and it has enough grunt to leave boy racers in crappy sporty Citroens for dead.
Looks nice, especially with the factory fitted 17" alloys.
Very well made. If it's anything like my 6th Gen then it will be something approaching bomb proof.

Model/Spec: Type S, 2.4 Tourer on 17" Pentas
Mileage: 73,000 at purchase now on 92,000
How long owned: Since August '12
Problems you've had: Front drop links, bushings etc + rear stabilisers (a bad day for the wallet) . Seized Rear Calliper resulting in new rear disks + pads as well as the dodgy calliper itself. New front brakes as they were well and truly shot at purchase. New Set of tyres, plus one extra thanks to an epic pothole strike. Replaced duff interior bulbs and upgraded to LED's on whole interior. Needed to replace both front and rear washer bottle motors and have the lines cleared. New Varta Battery installed last winter after old faithful gave up on me. I think that's all.....sounds like a right shed when you read it back.
Problems I still have - Air Con is intermittent but working atm , suspect condenser is goosed but it's not hot enough to care yet. Remote Locks have never worked on either key, despite multiple attempts at re-programming and some head scratching by Honda. Not overly fussed by this but will get it sorted one day.
Overall marks (/10): 8, a couple docked because i've had more problems than I expected from a Honda, although I think the previous owner may have just sold at the perfect time and put off many many jobs that just needed doing. It's been worth it though, planning on keeping the car for a long time so the work would be needed at some point. It's easily the best car i've owned (which is not hard following on from a 1.2 Punto and a 998cc Toyota Yaris ) it drives superbly, can leave most boy racers standing and you can get exactly half and Ikea in the boot.

1st Accord was a '98 R plate (5th gen, I think) 2.0i SE EXEC. Think all the badges came about simply because it was right on the model change and Honda were trying to empty the parts bins! Anyway, I kept that one for 5 years during which time I covered neigh on 80k miles.
Obviously a few new tyres were needed along the way, but the only work it ever needed to pass MOT was a sidelight bulb. That car eventually let me down on the very day I was taking it to the dealer as a trade in on my next one.....the head gasket finally let go at about (from memory) 120k miles. Not bad when you consider I never bothered to even change the oil in the time I had it! ****** good car that one.
I skipped the Swindon built 6th gen hatch, and based on my dad's experience of his, thank god I did.
So, I then picked up my CL7 2.0 Vtech, in exec spec on a 54 plate. Again, many miles were driven in the 6 years and so several tyres needed. The lambda probe did fail once (oxygen sensor) as the dealers seem to call it....and the car seemed to have a habit of splitting near side wiper blades....had to change that twice a year. Sure that was a freak thing on my car and it was a pain rather than a problem. I did learn the lesson with this one and made sure I kept it serviced properly so only consumable parts ever needed changing.
As of about 3 weeks ago, I've parted company with my beloved CL7 and got myself an 8th gen 2.2 Dtec Ex.
After only 3 weeks, there's no way I can comment on reliability but given the Accords I've had in the past, I'm pretty sure sticking to the service schedule will result in the car being "bulletproof".
Must agree with whoever said that the dealers can be pricy....I think that's down to the individual franchise. I get treated like royalty by my dealer and they often undercut the Happiness prices. Perhaps that's just because between my, mum and dad, we have now purchased no less than 16 cars over the years.......no wonder they like us!
In summary.....abuse your Accord and it will do its best for you.....look after it and you will probably never NEED to change your car again.

Model/Spec: Honda Accord 1.8 Vtec Sport
How long owned: 5 years
Problems you've had:
within 4 months of having her power steering pump went at 125k m.
Clutch went at 173k m. it was the original clutch aswell..
Brake line rusted last year, 181k m
Hand brake ceased on 181k m, needed new caliper.
Overall marks (7/10):
only because of the lack of performance upgrades you can do, But any car you spend more on tyres in 5 years then actually fixing is definitely a good car..

I just topped over 180 000 miles today ............ on my 6th gen 3.0 V6 Coupe.
I've owned my coupe for 2 1/2 years ........ Uses a little oil, but most of that is down to a slight leak rather than burned up.
Problems ??? None really other than a new battery, when it packed up totally one day...............
Replaced service type items, Tyres, Oil, Filters, Brake Pads, Wiper Blades ........... Had the Cambelts done last year.

Model/Spec: 2.2ictdi executive
Mileage: 413k kms/ 256K miles
How long owned: 42 months (bought with 118K miles)
Problems you've had since I bought it:
1 AC bearing replaced
2 Auto boot closing failure
3 Craked manifold
4 Turbo failure
5 EGR valve malfunctioning
The rest was standard maintenance, original shock absorvers and cluntch !!!
This is the 3rd accord that I have, always bought used and drive them till engine failure, the previus ones were petrol 2.0 of the two previous generations, I do the maintenance myself always with the goal of spend less money possible, as example I always used 5W30 because I can't get cheap 0W30 oil.
Overall marks (/10): Comparing with previous experiences, is 9/10, mainly because of the boot closing system
