    TIPS

    if you are buying a high mileage I-CTDI please make a note of the following.

    1) Service stamps and if these services have been done at regular intervals of 12,500 miles.

    2) Ask the owner or the seller what engine oil was used for the servicing anything but 0w-30 don't touch the car, walk away.

    3) Find out if the manifold and this timing chain work has been done?

    4) Using your own judgement take the car for a spin look out for noises.. Seller can mask engine noises by thicker oil for the sale.

    5) Remaps car avoid chose a stock car.

    6) If the car has already exceeded the mileage and length of time and if this work hasn’t been done DON’T BUY the car.

    7) The cost of repairing the car with brand new parts and labour is in excess of £2400.00 so do not gamble on buying a cheap car.

    My pre face-lift i CDTI was first registered in February 2006 so the 7 years extended warranty would be up in February 2013 ... Will they honor this should I be unfortunate enough to have a problem?

    I have just found this thread and own an I-CDTI Tourer registered in April 2006. Can you say what is meant by a pre-facelift Accord?

    I have just bought one such car and this article makes for scary reading. I wish I had read it before I made my purchase, I was under the impression that Hondas' were bullet proof.

    All depends on whether it has been well maintained, with an emphasis on regular oil changes.

    Whats the mileage and do you have service history ?

    Sorry for not responding earlier. If you can get a picture of your car I could say where your car is pre or a facelift one.

    Since yours is registered in April 2006 it can be either as it on the cusp of the change.

    Prefacelift car have a chrome bezel around the fround grill, the facelift grill is completely chrome.
