problem #2

Accord EX-L 3.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 64,000 miles

My 08 Accord V6 had the oil consumption problem and the miss firing of the spark plugs. Finally gave up last week completely , the engine block and the crank shaft are cracked, basically need a new engine. I have about 65000 miles ( no Warranty) I am very disappointed, this is my 5th Honda car within past 15 years, and it looks like the last one, I am in contact with Honda customer service, they asked me to tow the car to a Honda dealer which I did, and waiting for an answer, I have contacted an attorney, and unless Honda fixes the car, lawsuit is in order.

Accord E-XL 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 37,000 miles

I always heard Honda made excellent vehicles that is why I switched from American made. How sorry I am. I was driving almost 100 miles from my home by myself..engine light came on...car started to "jiggle". I only had 3.8 miles to go to get to destination...barely made it. Car was towed back home by AAA on a flatbed.

Now I am all alone...husband had to drive to get me.

Dealer tells me I need a new engine!! Engine block is cracked and rear cylinder head is destroyed....will cost almost $7,000......then he tells me it is still under the 5 yr/60,000 mile warranty.....but I now have no car for at least a week

I am afraid to drive this car when fixed..not sure what to do??
