  1. The 8th Generation
    Hi everyone, did a little of reseach but didn’t find anything similar to what I got, so I apologize if this a double post! How can I treat this rust on my car? (it’s getting worse year by year and I want to stop it, I’m wondering how can I deal with the paint) Thank you for your assistance

    Hi! I just bought an accord 2015 coupe black manual, and here what I found when I pulled the oil dipstick.. Seems to have lot of rust, some pieces mixed with oil on the tip.. Is it just the oil tube? Any deeper issues I should look for? Thank you so much!

    I have a 2004 V6 Coupe and live in the NW. I don't drive my car much (55k miles), and i keep it outside most of the time, all year. Recently i took off my wheels to do some annual inspection and maintenance, and I've noticed some heavy rusting to the control arm, and basically any metal arm and...

    I have the Magnaflow full exhaust arriving at my house tomorrow, but I have one concern with the DIY install: rusty fasteners. I have a nice socket set and a butane torch, but I do not have a lift so I can really get some leverage on those bolts. I got under the car yesterday and sprayed the...

    I recently noticed some rust on the rear left wheel well of my new 2017 Accord. I know it's nothing to freak out about...but it's only been about 6 months and I know it'll only get worse. I normally wash my car 1-3 times a month, including in the winter when there's tons of road salt. Is this...

    Hi everyone, I have a lunar silver metallic accord sport with 4 grand miles and I am paranoid about the possible damages or longevity of the vehicle. The thunderstorm and the rain was horrid and avoiding the highway, I took the streets near downtown which was "covered" with water. The level of...

    I've searched around but haven't found a solution to this. But, if there is a thread, it'd be great if you could point me in the right direction. I'm trying to install a Magnaflow cat-back system on my 03 coupe but I can't remove the three bolts connecting the exhaust to the cat. After removing...
  8. Maintenance & Detailing
    Yup I'm one of those anal retentive car guys, I admit it. I go to great lengths to keep my car in showroom condition. That is why the rust which has appeared on the lugs of all 4 wheels this winter is gonna drive me nuts! I included a picture and this is something I never had to deal with in...

    Is this normal? The screws connected to the engine are starting to rust. My car is not even 2 months old yet.

    I have a friend who has an ungaraged 2011 Civic with 15K miles. He purchased this car new from a NJ Honda dealership. Rust and corrosion have developed on the upper edge of the rocker panel on the passenger side, with a much smaller area of rust and corrosion on the same area below the...

    So far, I've owned a 2013 Honda Accord LX for roughly a year and 13,500 miles. After an oil change by a mechanic other the dealership, he revealed to me of massive rust on the suspension struts. Note, I live in Los Angeles (which is in a drought) and have never driven to a snowy area but I have...

    RE: Beware of Honda Quality control! I would like to share my recent (bad) experience with newly purchased 2013 Honda Accord Sport. Not too late since my puchase at a local dealership, I found the rust spots on the underdash panel which extends to the upper portion of VSA and ECON switches...
  14. Wheels, Suspension & Brakes
    Hi, I've got this really nasty looking surface rust on the top edge of my brake rotors and where they meet the rim. I've looked around but can't find a good solution to get rid of it. I tried 000 steel wool, that worked for a while, but it came back in a few days. Any solutions? Thanks.

    1998 Accord, EX, 4 cyl, automatic, ULEV, driven in the northeast, original owner, 78K miles, and will never move or transfer to CA. This trusty 13 year old Accord's flex pipe finally rotted away. I replaced it (bought at a local imports parts store) as well as with a "direct-fit" Bosal...

    Hey all, so... I was getting out of my accord today and I noticed this huge strip over an inch long and a quarter inch wide on the boarder of the sun roof that was completely rusted. This happened entirely within the last week as I know it wasn't there when I washed it last thursday. My...

    Rust Spot: FIXED 8/2010 I know that there have been a few posts regarding rust in the past, and the solution was "claybar", but I'm gonna hold of on the claybarring until I hear back from the dealership. Anyways, I was washing my car today and surface debris was coming off. However, then I saw...
