2017 Honda Accord Owner Comments

problem #4

Feb 112021

Accord Sport 2.4L V4

  • CVT transmission
  • 74,756 miles


Once again had problems with the oil pressure light coming on and took to the dealership. They performed the oil change and told me to bring it in after 1,000 miles for a check. I did this and was told the oil level was good. I was then told to bring car in after another 1,000 miles for another check. When I asked the service advisor why this second check wasn't done when I initially had the problem he said they made a mistake and should have made me come in after another 1,000 miles for a second check. At this point I was told by the service advisor and the service manager both that the excessive oil consumption was a problem they had seen with several cars.

Unfortunately Honda corporate was not acknowledging that it was a problem due to the fact that the amount of oil used was BARELY WITHIN Honda's acceptable limits. The end result is that the service department recommended that I have my oil changed every 3000 miles instead of every 7500 miles. Additionally they also use a 5W30 oil together with a special additive instead of the synthetic oil. I was given a verbal that if the engine had future problems or had to be replaced that Honda would pay for the cost. At this point I'm very unhappy with my Honda experience to say the least.

  • 57,718 miles

My oil pressure light came on at times during a hard braking or fast acceleration. Service advisor at dealership drained and replaced oil and told me the oil level was a bit low. Told me to drive the car for 1,000 miles then bring it back in for a check. After 1,000 miles I brought it back in and they said oil level was fine and at the full mark.

problem #2

Oct 242017

Accord EX 2.4L

  • Manual transmission
  • 5,000 miles

No oil on dipstick @ 5,000 miles. Added 2 Qts. Took to dealer. Began oil consumption tests that has lasted

8 months. Dealer verifies excessive usage, but Honda claims this can, could, might or is considered

normal. Dealer says Honda won't pay for a fix. Dealer says they don't know what the fix is. I'm going to

continue tests every 1,000 miles until end of 2018. Honda's mileage claim is total bullshit. They know

they have a problem, and are covering their ass by stating this amount of oil usage is normal.
