This isn't going as planned. I've recently been looking for an 8th Generation Accord tourer I-DTEC, 2008/2009, 50-80k miles on the clock, ES GT with nav pack, around £9-9.5k max. Needs to buy ASAP as my current Alfa is costing me more every month after the recent hassles i've had i am at the point of just wanting a new car right now. 1. First car i wanted to go and view to buy this Sat (Tourer ES GT 2009, 310 miles away) - phoned last night - car had just been sold 1hr before i phoned. Plan: Re-evaluate and choose a good one that doesn't fit my desired spec/price/age/mileage as well as the first choice. 2. Second car i decided to go and view to buy this Sat (Saloon EX GT 2008, 315 miles away) - phoned this afternoon - car had just been sold 2hr before i phoned. Plan: Re-evaluate again and choose a good one that doesn't fit my desired spec/price/age/mileage as well as the second choice. 3. Third and final car i decided to go and view to buy (Estate ES GT 2009, 320 miles away) this Sat – But, after emailing the dealer (asking detailed questions) it turns out the (Honda) car service schedule has been: 13k / 25k / 39k / 70k. They should be around (at a minimum) - 12.5k / 25k / 37.5k / 50k / 62.5k / 75k / 87.5k. Gah, told the dealer i can't take the risk of a higher mileage car (80k, next service due in 2k) with what looks like x2 missing services in its history. Plan: Consider giving up on the Accord 8th Generation as all the 'good' cars are many miles away from Scotland and if i do manage to find one that hasn't been sold, it likely will be before i travel near it. QUESTION: I'm not misunderstanding something as far as the service schedule goes am I? Or have I successfully dodged a bullet? Grump. Mark.
