^^^

And then for non-severe conditions I'm pretty sure it's 105k.
Correct...

Well, since the 9th gen throws up a MM code for it, I'm waiting until I see that (Or early next spring if I don't drive it much this winter). The "severe" conditions is pretty variable. Does someone like myself who uses all the throttle every day be considered "severe"? Temperature? I've drive in -25 weather and 100+. Is that "severe"

Honda has recommended 7yr/105k for quite some time now. I don't have the tensioner knock so not worried, it will happen soon enough. My kid just turned 40k on his 2013, and we are going to let it roll a couple more years.

What are your mpgs and I do not recall which trim you got and if you're still rowing through gears.
36-40mpg, depending on traffic, weather, and terrain.

I'm driving a CVT, sadly. 1.5T LX, with the 15 accord rims on there.

So a AAA membership is on order for you since you can't push start it anymore? Speaking of AAA, is that type of road service would work for you given you're all over the place at all sorts of times of the day? I know you were on top of the maintenance, but we're talking emergencies here.

If I remember right, someone had mentioned that AAA almost crossed their polarities during a jump or something. Actually, that might have been @stiller fan himself?

No AAA membership for me after reading that, at least.

While all said is true, some like our roadrunner would definitely be watching like a hawk to supervise appropriate handling of his flying saucer.

AAA is a million times better than Heico towing, who wanted to charge me $8-$10/mile when my engine blew January 2020, and refuse a tow on my friend's car when I ran over wtf ever is I hit in NY.

AAA isnt great, but it's better than the alternative.

And, the Crown Vic was the last big boat car, IMHO.

Yeah, that was me, during an attempted jump once. They tried, but I stopped them before it went down like that.

I'd hate to be paying the gas bill for a Crown Vic right now... I've seen a lot of them go up for sale in my area lately, probably for that reason.
26mpg highway if you're lucky, I think.

But, the parts are dirt cheap, and super easy to work on.

My brother had a 92 Town Car. They actually had the nerve to put the mpg reading on the dash. Kind of depressing when it never gets above 13mpg.

In Honda's home country, and in neighboring Asian countries, Accords since 2008 would probably be looked upon, size-wise, the way Americans perceived the monster Chryslers and Cadillacs of the late 1960s and early '70s.

In reality, the only edge my 2010 Accord has on a 1970 Imperial is overall height - almost 4"(10cm) taller.
