    Hi guys, i'm Chris.

    I've just purchased an 04 plate Accord executive 2.2 ICTDI, on 242k, been recorded cat c.
    The car has been repaired but not very well, you can see the filler marks in the paint and the panels are wavy, so i will be looking out for both bumpers and both wings.
    Car is awesome to drive though the clutch does seem to be slipping abit, but that will be fixed, along with some other niggles like the climate control, not working correctly.
    Car is very comfortable, has all the bells and whistles and perfect to have 5 doors, to put the little one in the back easier.

    First was a Seat Cordoba 1.4,
    then i had a Seat Ibiza 1.9d,
    a Fiat Punto 1.2,
    Ford Mondeo 2.0 petrol,
    Nissan Primera 1.6,
    another Seat Ibiza diesel but this time it had a turbo LOL
    then i started spending a bit more money on cars and not just buying cheap crap,
    i had a Skoda Fabia Vrs
    my last personal car was an Astra H Twintop 1.8.
    Me and a friend have had a few cars between us,
    MG ZT 180
    MG TF 160
    and a Rev 5 Toyota MR2 non turbo.
    At the start i used to have a new car every 6 months, just because i used to buy cheap rubbish.

    A few good ones, a few bad ones. i'm just hoping i can keep this one going as long as possible, seeing what i can do on the cheap this month and then look to service and fix the clutch next month.

    Hello and Welcome to HK Chris. Plenty of miles under the car's belt but I am sure with a bit of TLC it will give you plenty more.

    Thank you, this forum seems to be the best place for us UK based Accord owners, lots of reading to be done before the weekend when i can get out there and get things started.

    in a previous life this was known as Accord Owners Club or AOC then they opened the gates and let all other Honda owners like me in. If you own a Accord, this is the place to be! but the members here are quite knowledgeable in all things Honda so do and can provide support for pretty much all.

    Welcome to HondaKarma @cwall22 :welcome:

    ^^ You must be using a weird version of Google, as there are no other Honda forums as far as I'm aware...:lol::lol::lol:

    Hope your Accord treats you well. Good selection of cars you've had there as well - there's at least one general thread I'm guessing you could contribute to!

    What's the worst car you've owned ? (General - )
