We are selling our beloved 2004 Honda Accord (EX with leather seats/front seats have seat warmers). I must say, we really don't want to, but we have a new member in the family and find that we need something a little bigger. We purchased this vehicle new from the dealership and have cared for it since it's purchase. This car runs great, and looks great. The car is 9 years old, and has several small door dings, which I tried to include with the pictures, but they are so small I don't know if they can be seen. There is also a small crack in the front bumper, from when a car in front of us kicked up a small metal plate. It didn't puncture the bumper, but did crack it. If it were not so cold out when it happened, I don't think it would of cracked at all. The car handles great in the winter and in the rain. It is fully loaded (with the exception of a navigation system). Here is the history of our car.

Several years (I believe 2006) after we purchased the vehicle, the head liner began to sag in the bag seat. The car was taken back to the dealership for repair. After the repair, we found they had dripped glue on the rear seat and the seatbelt straps, which faded the color. Of course we took it back for repair, which they fixed (I believe they died the material to match).

In roughly 2009, we had approx. 65000 mile on the car. While driving to work, the engine began making a funny noise. I pulled over and had it towed to our repair shop. We learned that we had a piston seized. Needless to say we were upset. We had the oil changed every 5,000 miles. Come to find out (we believe), the place we were having it done was using recycled oil. The business that had been doing our oil changes went out of business.  We had to decide what to do, rebuild the engine or replace the engine. We decide that replacing the engine was the best choice. We purchased an engine that had about 47,000 miles on it. We have had no issues since then. We have the oil changed every 5,000 miles and use synthetic oil. 

We put a new battery in roughly March of 2012, and had new brake/rotors in 2012. The oil was just changed 2 weeks ago. I just had the tires rotated this week at the Goodyear Center (the tires are Goodyear Assurance, P205/60R16). I have the paper work showing the tires have 7/32" tread (which they said was about 70% tread left). While washing the car, I saw that there was a small paint chip on the lower left front bumper. I bought some touch up paint and touched it up. You can barely see it. I also touched up several small stone chip on the hood and bumper.

The last issue we have had is the airbag light has came on several times, then goes off. I have taken it in to the dealer twice to have them figure it out. And of course the light turns off, so they can not read the code. Last week, while it was on, I researched this on-line. On a forum it suggested that I buckle the driver seatbelt before starting the car, and if the light goes off, then it has something to do with the seatbelt. It also said that if you unbuckle the seatbelt while it is running, and the light comes back on, it is a faulty seatbelt. So I tried this, and sure enough the light went off and back on when unbuckled. I headed to the dealership to have it fixed. And of course, the light is back off so they can not code it. I have been told by several people to not try to repair the system myself, it is easy to cause more damage. And frankly it is something I wouldn't want to try and fix myself. I have been assured by several people that if the airbag light is off, that the airbag will deploy when needed. If the light comes back on prior to selling it, I will again try and get it to the dealership for repair. The forum I read stated that there is a federal mandate for lifetime warranty of seatbelts.

I may have to use this vehicle a few times until it is sold, so the mileage will be a little higher, but no more then 250 miles. You are welcome to have the vehicle inspected, and you can test drive the vehicle. The dealership offer we had was STUPID, and they told me  "to be honest you can get more if you sell it yourself". Please know this is a used car, 9 years old. There is no warranty, and is sold as is. But remember this is the flagship for Honda, and after all it is a HONDA. I will assist with having it shipped, which will be the buyer responsibility to arrange. I will work with the buyer if they decide to fly in and drive it home. I would not hesitate to drive this car to South America. We average about 26 mpg (combine city/highway).

The car comes with 2 sets of keys/key pads, and the valet key. The car has a remote start installed, and we have 2 remote starts pads as well. Please ask any questions. A $500 deposit is requested within 48 hrs. after close of auction. Deliver/possession can be made after funds have cleared the bank. We have a clear Michigan title. We reserve the right to end the auction early, due to vehicle be available for sale locally. Please do not send funds FED EX or UPS. I will only except payment by (if certified check is mailed)  the United States Postal Service, which helps protect the buyer and seller.


On Jun-10-13 at 12:37:38 PDT, seller added the following information:

I have the car at the dealership and they have ordered the parts to fix the problem, which was the seatbelt. Will be ready tomorrow. Also the sunroof is a power operated moonroof.

Honda, Hyundai and Kia get best word-of-mouth recommendations in US

Mon, 09 Dec 2013 16:14:00 EST

Forget advertising, incentives and, yes, even our excellently crafted vehicle reviews, sometimes the best way for automakers to sell cars is still good ol' fashioned word of mouth. In an attempt to measure this "word of mouth" power, The Boston Consulting Group, a management consulting firm, has created a new study called the Brand Advocacy Index (BAI). The index takes a look at how various industries perform from person to person. Those industries include automotive, smartphones, grocery, mobile telecommunications and banking.
The study polled more than 32,000 individuals across Europe and in the US to come up with the top 55 brands in these various industries. On the automotive side of things, the top brands in the US were Honda, Hyundai and Kia, all tied at 63 percent. On a global scale, Volkswagen and Toyota scored the highest with a 65-percent BAI rating (both in France). The average BAI for auto industry players tallied 50 percent.
As for companies in other industries, Apple's iPhone was the index's top-rated smartphone, Trader Joe's was the highest recommended grocery store, Virgin was sat atop the mobile telecom industry and USAA was the top retail bank. Scroll down for the full press release on the new study.

Honda to present HR-V, updated Acura ILX at LA show

Mon, 20 Oct 2014 13:59:00 EST

Honda has already showcased its new Fit-based crossover around the world. We've seen it in Tokyo wearing the Vezel name and we've seen it in Paris in 'prototype' form. We've even seen photos of the US-spec version. We just haven't seen that North American model in the flesh, but that'll all be fixed next month at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
That's where Honda will, at long last, unveil the US version of its new HR-V subcompact. The Japanese automaker hasn't told us much else, save to say that the HR-V will, of course, slot in below the CR-V in US showrooms. It'll also feature the company's lauded Magic Seat system, "which allows for multiple seating configurations and the ability to fold the second row seat completely flat for added cargo space."
Alongside the HR-V, Honda's luxury division will also be showcasing a revised version of its ILX sedan at the LA show as well. Acura hasn't revealed precise details of what revisions are in store for its smallest sedan - or a more detailed photo than the teaser inset at right - but it is promising "a comprehensive update that include a potent new powertrain, more forceful, sporty exterior styling and a substantially upgraded interior design."

Honda unveils new 3.5-liter racing engine

Sat, 22 Feb 2014 14:02:00 EST

Honda is following Ford's lead and debuting the second twin-turbocharged V6 to be used by Daytona Prototypes in the United Sports Car Championship. The wait won't be long to see it on track because the new engine will debut with the Starworks Motorsport team in a Riley Gen3 prototype chassis at the 12 Hours of Sebring from March 12-15.
The new HR35TT engine is based on Honda's J35 production V6 found in a variety of its models, including the current Accord. The racing version benefits from dry sump lubrication, but is still similar to the production version with an aluminum block, direct injection and single overhead camshafts. It is fueled by 100-octane E10 fuel, but like many racing engines, exact power figures have not been released.
Starworks has had a close relationship with Honda since it won the LMP2 class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and in the FIA World Endurance Championship in 2012 with a Honda Performance Development ARX-03b chassis and Honda engine. We can't wait to see this new mill hit the track, and see how it fairs against Chip Ganassi Racing's EcoBoost-powered Riley. Scroll down to read the press release for the full details.
