    If you end up getting a 7th Generation, go for the petrol variants (2.0, 2.4) especially if it's pre-facelift (before 2006), there are a number of known issues with the diesel CDTi engines. With the 8th Gens you haven't got so much of an issue, the I-DTEC is a vastly superior design by all accounts - the only issues cropping up tend to stem from DPFs. The 2.4 petrol 8th Gens are quite rare but 2.0s are plentiful.

    Welcome to the AOC, hope you find what you are looking for.

    after seeing the prices for the 8th Generation they are quite too much for my budget and will stick with 7th Generation face lift

    any ideas what to look out for when buying one? and maybe any particular spots to check that they normally rust ?

    Hi dejv,

    Preferably go for a 7th Generation facelift with honda dealer service history, the 7th Generation section has a few stickies or head over to the wiki for some more info.

    Sales section only opens after you have made substantial posts and have also reached a few months on the community,it is a long term goal and it can't be just meet by churning out posts. :Wink:
