I've been here a few days but forgot to say hello here, apologies! Currently living in Glasgow. Originally had a 6th Generation Accord 2.0 petrol and then got a Ford Mondeo 2.0 TDCI (130) which was nice to drive but after 60K (I think it was heavily clocked though) things started to go wrong. My main driving is daily short runs so the diesel was probably a bad choice. So, it's been traded in for a 2005 Honda Accord 2.4i Executive Salon, silver with 62K on the clock and 17" wheels. I had to travel down south for it but the savings of about £1.5 - £2K made it worthwhile. I expected to have to do a few minor stuff on it and hopefully I'll still be quids in once done. The to-do list so far.... Tyre pressures on the front wheels are dropping, N/S faster and there's vibration at 60-70mph. Found out today there was a bloody big nail through the very edge so I just replaced both front tyres and had them balanced. I put Uniroyal Rainsport 2 on. I'm getting that floating steering feeling that's been mentioned on here even with brand new tyres. A full check on the wheel aligment etc will be arranged. It's probably just the tracking but I saw a good report on here that someone posted so I'll get that done. (now booked in for next weekend). 4 Wheel Alignment done to specs for a 2.4 tramlining and it feels like a new car now and the steering is super tight. Apparently, there are also alignment specs for a non-tramlining car but the leeway allowed is quite big and may not have fixed it. Brake pads and discs all round need replacing. I'm going to attempt this myself using the helpful guide on here! Turns out I'll get at least another year out of them so the parts are going in storage until my big service at 75K where I'll then get it done. Bled the front two brakes and it's improved the travel with the brake pedal. Clutch pedal was making a loud noise and a clicking feeling could be felt in the pedal. Sorted out thanks to advice on here by spraying Silicone lubricant in the relevant place. I'm getting squeaks and rattles in the dash in exactly the same places as someone else on here has reported. Some registration plate tape has been bought as it's got a lovely padded feel so should hopefully be able to wedge it into the right places. Will also do a full interior check and make sure everything is tight etc. I hate rattles! lol (not got round to this but have temporarily eliminated squeaks and rattles with Honda's special anti-rattle device). I've got another post about this and it turns out there's bolts and nuts missing within the console area and SatNav. New bolts in and small fabric discs used in select places to eliminate almost all of the rattles. Meguires Clay bar and premium wax on standby for this weekend along with a huge tub of G3 cutting paste and touch up paint for some of the stone chips. All done, see photo below The engine has a whining sound and the pitch follows the RPM's. I've still to look this up (I believe this is normal? It's not the gearbox oil as it follows the revs even when in neutral so perhaps just a belt is a little tight?). I'm not bothered by this now as it seems normal. Driver's door sash needs replacing - got the parts but still to mess it up (this isn't happening anytime soon now. Looking for a quick alternative instead). I've got a thread on this and I ended up masking the windows etc and using a Matt Black Acrylic Spray. It looks like the original sash now and seems to be hard wearing. Phew! Nothing major though and I've decided against doing a brake fluid flush and gearbox oil change for just now as the big 75K service should cover that I think? So far this forum has helped a lot and all I can offer back in return at the moment is if anyone in Glasgow has their management light on then give me a shout as I have a code reader which I can hook up for you. Cheers guys.
