I am considering the purchase of a 2010 Honda Accord EX-L (continues below)
I am considering the purchase of a 2010 Honda Accord EX-L with a •2.4L DOHC MPFI 16-valve i-VTEC I4 engine and 95,900 miles. The asking price is $9995. The dealer just reduced the price from $19995 to $9995. When I asked about it he said he has just had it on his lot a long time and he just needs to move it. I am wondering if you could tell me if this engine or this model Accord is prone to any know problems and if so, how serious that might be. Also, what do you think of the price. Does it signal a problem to you? I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your help with this. I am a widow on a very limited income. It is absolutely imperative that I make a wise car-buying decision. Again, thank you! God bless.
A friend of mine had an Accord that the timing chain wore around that mileage, and used a lot of oil. Here is some more info..http://www.hondaaccordforum.com/forum/general-tech-help- 7/accord-2-4l-i-vtec-timing-chain-problem-stalling-44068/....you might want to look at something else.
Do NOT buy this car. The fact that it's been on the lot for way too long is telling.....which means other people than you and me also realized this was way way way too many miles to be on a 2010 Accord.........my 2008 Accord EXL only has 52k miles but anyway............that 10,000 price decrease never happens, something is wrong with it...,....definitely do NOT buy a used car over say 60,000 miles if it is Japanese and no more than 30,0000 if American (like a Chevy Cruze, Chrysler 200 or Ford Fusion......these are pieces of junk after 60k to 70k miles where as the Jap cars are fine til 100k perhaps....but above man is right, those high mikes mean a very expensive timing belt chain cost....don't do it....don't do it...tell the dealer you are passing and they are fool of sh****t that reducing 10,000 in one day because it has been on the lot too long...yeah right...if that was the case they would've just sold it to Carmsx to make room for another piece of junk they are trying to get someone to be gullible in buying.....
