  1. The 8th Generation
    Hey, 2008 Accord sedan 4cyl I was driving to work when my CEL came on, the car had no issues previously, I know it’s something to do with the catalytic converter. The only thing right now is my oil life is at 15% (I kept putting it aside, my fault) I won’t use it until I do the oil change in 2...

    My wife has a 2013 Accord (93k miles) that we have normally had an oil change every 6 months (when oil life is 30%. Yes, I know, I could go longer but its so easy to remember). I don't use the car - how does the MM alert you to jobs that need to be done? I push the button on the instrument...

    I have a 2013 Accord EX-L 4cyl sedan with 139,000 miles. For my last 5,000 miles it said I was averaging 22.1mpg. While I do drive a lot of city roads, the previous 10k and the 10k before that were averaging 27.6mpg. I have changed the engine oil, transmission oil, brakes, and tires as...

  6. Accord Hybrid 10th Gen
    Hi All, My Accord Hybrid is now almost 4 months old and has around 4200 miles on it and is running like new (need some minor fixes though) except for mileage drop due to cold weather. The maintenance minder shows that the oil life is 70% so seems like it degrades 10% every 1000 miles. Should...

    Stupid dealer....so I bought out the lease on my 2015 Accord last night and as I was dealing with the paperwork etc, they did the "required" inspection which included an oil change back in the service area. Problem is, my car was at 50% on the MM and the service people reset the MM without...

    I can't be the only one who keeps a log of everything that's done to their car. It would be interesting to see them. Here's a graph of cost and miles. (Details in the attached PDF).
  10. The 8th Generation
    Hey everyone, I recently purchased a used 2010 Honda Accord LX-P with 100,000 miles on it. I believe I have the actuator problem, where a noise comes when I first turn the car on when it's cold. I am just wondering, would I save more money by buying a warranty (especially for this problem) and...

    Hello I am moving from California to New Mexico for school and plan on taking my car. I drive a 2006 Honda Accord, 2.4L 4 cylinder engine. Mileage is ~141000. The road trip is ~1115 miles, and the Honda has no history of engine problems, accidents, or other issues. I plan on changing out the...
  12. Wheels, Suspension & Brakes
    I am working on my wife's 2012 V6 Accord Coupe Automatic. I am a long-time wrench turner but for almost a decade I have been a European-only guy, so I am not exactly super familiar with the idiosyncrasies of Honda/Acura or even Asian makes. The car is sitting right at 59K miles and I was tasked...
  13. The 9th Generation
    Hi, I apologize in advance if I'm posting in the wrong forums since I'm new here. So my 2014 Accord EX-L needs an A12 maintenance and I called a couple of dealers to see what it would cost. All 4 of them (two in MD and two in OH since I'll be traveling to and from these two states) quoted me...
  14. The 8th Generation
    Ok so been thinking about this for a while now and done a lot of research. I am very aware that the recommended time to replace the timing belt is 7 years or 105,000 miles. Here is my concern and question. My 2008 Honda Accord EX-L V6 has around 137,000 miles. I've lived in GA/AL the entire...

  16. The 7th Generation
    Hey All - So in my continuing quest...my new to me 06 Accord with around 240K miles is getting some much needed maintenance. I don't believe any real maintenance was performed from what I can tell by the prior owner. While I'm not 100% sure, it's likely that these plugs are the...

    Disclaimer-This is not for the DIY Individuals Like most 9th Generation Accord owners, the 30k maintenance Service may be coming up for you.. If not, this can possibly save you money for any other type of service. I got notice to do a software update for my 13 Accord, I figured I would wait...
  18. The 7th Generation
    My 2005 LX V6 Accord has 126,000 miles and I haven't done the 105K or the 120k maintenance yet. By the way I just had the front and rear brake pads and rotors replaced. I plan to keep this car as long as I possibly can (I'm the original owner). Also, except for the 105K maintenance I have been...
  19. The 7th Generation
    The dealership I bought my 7th Gen from surprisingly (*insert sarcasm here*) didn't have service records from the previous owner. I noticed on Honda's website that you have the ability to enter your own.(https://owners.honda.com/service-maintenance/records) I was wondering if anyone has...
