    Father-in-law wasn't happy when I told him the engine under his bonnet was a Honda. He was adamant it was a rover as it had rover stamped on the rocker cover. When I showed him the dizzy and other engine part stamped with Honda his pride was dented a bit. His car done 130k the bottom end journals are a bit noise at high revs , original drivetrain body has a lot of bondo and running repair to get through the MOT. It's quick partly down to a worn engine. It will be scrapped soon.

    My Dad had a 5th Generation Honda that he loved to bits. Failed an MOT with a brakes issue that main dealer quoted £1500 to fix (was just the ABS sensor I think) and the Honda didn't make it back onto the road after that ... my dad passed away a few years back but we still have the car (just gets started every few months - even after 4 or 5 years still starts first time!). It was his pride and joy, I drove it a couple of times - the leather interior was pretty classy and whilst not earth shattering performance, I still remember the kick down ... it was a 2.3 SR Auto. Its about time to do something with it but its never easy in these circumstances...

    I might look into getting one myself. Might sell the EP3 Civic to replace it with. Im looking for a change now and accord coupe does look like a good contender.

    Hi I have a 5th Generation accord, I have owned it from 2006 and it is one of the best cars that I have had, it has done 148K and still keeps going, I had the ABS sensor replaced and it cost £200 fitted. The only thing it fails on at MOT time is the Hand Brake every year.
    The bodywork is not too bad, they go in the same places as the Rover 600, the lower rear wheelarch above the sill and above the rear bumper where mine is bubbling

    I've got my mum a 5th Generation accord last week on saturday. Surprisingly its using alot of fuel for a 1.8i VTEC only on 86k... I think its giving us lower MPG than my 2.0 Civic type-r :-$ (confused)

    Hi
    I have just done 1200 miles in the last week, (2 runs to Torquay and 1 to Heathrow ) and I have averaged 36 MPG.
    This was mostly Motorway , the car performed as expected perfectly with no oil used.
    It will be a shame to let her go but I need a higher car for her indoors. Probably a Shuttle

    is that with a 1.8i or the 2.0i?

    See i think i'm getting similar MPG on steady motorway runs, which i am quiet disappointed with. With a long motorway run on my 2litre Civic type-r i get around 35-35mpg which is a much higher powered car, but then again it is much lighter.
