Honda Accord 2012 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Honda Accord 2012 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Ford Focus 2012: Is it good on the highway?
The Focus is a good car with a serious flaw; it has a dual-clutch automatic transmission that gives trouble. I would happily have a 2012 Focus with a manual gearbox, but I wouldn't buy one with a dual-clutch auto. I'd be looking at a Japanese or Korean brand and going for something like a Mazda 3, Honda Civic or Accord, Hyundai Elantra with a good record of reliability.
Accord road noise
Before you jump out of the Honda, head to a tyre specialist (Bob Jane T-Marts is usually good) and talk about switching to a quieter tyre. A change of tyres can really help and it's a lot cheaper than a change of cars.
Honda Euro Luxury paint issue
Orange peel was once a no-no for painters, it was thought to be a poor finish, but for some reason we've come to think that it means that lots of paint has been applied and it's now ok. There's nothing you can do about it without repainting the car. As for the scratching I would recommend regular polishing to give the surface maximum protection.
Honda gearbox overhaul
Word from the industry is that Honda autos typically need rebuilding after 90,000-100,000 km. They just wear out.
