Accord paint fading

Answered by CarsGuide 19 Apr 2012

The offer is a pretty standard one across the industry. The thinking is that when it's re-sprayed you will have a car that looks like new, not six years old. That's in effect what you are paying for. If you are not happy with the offer go to the consumer affairs people and enlist their help in negotiating with Honda.

Honda Euro Luxury sat-nav

Answered by CarsGuide 20 Oct 2011

The sat-nav disc you received in your car was current when the car was built, but not necessarily when the car was sold. That's a problem when cars are built in foreign countries usually many months before they're finally sold to customers here. It's something that new car buyers should be mindful of and do something about before they sign up for their new cars.

Honda Accord CO2 sensor

Answered by CarsGuide 29 Sep 2011

Honda claimed an overall average of 9.2 L/100 km, but that's derived from a lab test and not real life. Even so it should be an indication of what you could expect, and that seems to be mirrored by your real life results. It would seem that it's probably running rich and your theory of a faulty CO2 sensor could be on the money. Your dealer should be able to check it and confirm if it's a problem or not.

Honda Accord window winders

Answered by CarsGuide 22 Sep 2011

Problems with window winders is not uncommon, although we haven't heard of this issue in particular. As to what to do, you should maintain the pressure on the dealers to fix it seeing that it is under warranty, and you could also consult an auto electrician in your area.

Ask Smithy Xtra Honda Accord start up problem

Answered by CarsGuide 23 Aug 2011

It’s not likely to be the oxygen sensor, more likely it’s an igniter or a crank angle sensor. Have a mechanic who has experience with Hondas to check it for you.

Ask Smithy Xtra Honda Accord LPG conversion

Answered by CarsGuide 5 Jul 2011

There is no reason it couldn’t be converted, but finding a kit is difficult because the demand from owners to convert the Accord has been low so there’s been little of no justification for LPG system manufacturers to develop kits. Call companies like Impco, Australian LPG Warehouse, Apollo, Sprint etc. and ask them about converting your car.

Ask Smithy Xtra Honda Accord VTiS starting problem

Answered by CarsGuide 30 May 2011

I’m guessing it’s not a 1964 Accord, that it’s really a later model and it’s fuel-injected. If it is fuel-injected you shouldn’t be putting your foot on the accelerator when you attempt to start it, that usually confuses the computer and the engine won’t start. Try starting it without touching the accelerator.

Broken Accord boot

Answered by CarsGuide 18 Mar 2011

I'd take it to an independent Honda mechanic, one who specialises in the brand, and have him fix it. It sounds to me like the Honda dealer is giving you excuses in the hope you will go away.
