    Hi
    I'm thinking of getting a Honda Accord, automatic, petrol, with cruise control.
    I think the year of manufacture is 2003 to 2008 (i'm not sure of the exact years)

    What are the common faults of these cars?
    What should I be looking out for?

    Thanks in advance

    It's true.

    Check out the stickies in the 7th Generation Accord section.

    Look for good history of 12.5k services with Honda or decent independents.

    Hi Hondream, I'm on my second 7th Generation petrol Accord and have covered 100K plus across the two. Apart from regular servicing and replacing wear and tear items such as brake discs and pads they been faultless. Which is inline with what other 7th Generation petrol Accord owners have reported.

    Just service them regularly and they are practically bombproof.
