Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2006 Honda Accord Owner Comments

Accord 4-cyl

  • 3,000 miles


I purchased a brand new 2006 Honda Accord, with a 4 cylinder engine and 5 speed manual. The car is a LX special edition, with a 2.4 liter, 4 cylinder. The car has burned excessive amounts of oil since day one. It burns more than 2 quarts of oil between each oil change. At first I thought it was due to the thin oil that is required and that it was just the break in, but it keeps getting worse. I have run the factory Honda oil and filter and the problem keeps getting worse. This oil change I tried mobil 1 synthetic oil in the recommended weight, but it did not help. The oil is at 50% and the car has already burned over 1 quart of oil with just over 20,000 miles on the car. I have done all of the required oil changes at the proper intervals. The cars transmission is also abnormally stiff when it is warming up. A friend of mine was able to insist that they rebuild his manual transmission for similar problems. The excessive oil burning is the problem I am writing about though.

Engine light came on three times. First time dealership said computer needed updating, cleared the code. The next day it came on and would not start. Dealership claimed it was the alarm. Less than 2 weeks ago it came on again when I was out of state. Dealership tested it, and determined it was a bent cylinder head, they guessed it was caused by bad shifting, but freeze data showed I was only going 45 mph at 1300 rmps. They said that it was not covered by warranty. Honda has been stalling for 26 days.
