Trading my Civic for an 09 Accord - Any common faults i should be aware of?

Hi,

I am trading in my Honda Civic as I require a slightly bigger vehicle. A local dealer is selling an Accord which I am very interested in (2009 plate with the full kit). Manual transmission with 75k on the clock. It is a petrol but I generally have always preferred petrol cars.

Are there any common faults or something I should be wary about when inspecting this car?

I can't think of anything mechanically but few things to check out which might have been done already but worth checking it anyway.

I suggest you have a good look around the HondaKarma forum, possibly even join up and ask a few questions. It covers all Honda models (including chainsaws and lawnmowers) but us Accord owners are the most represented.

That's a forum for North American Accords, which are very different vehicles to European Accords.

In North America the Acura TSX is the same as our Honda Accord. Odd, isn't it!
