This is my second Accord chosen out of necessity more than anything. She is a one previous owner with all the toys except for ADAS, which I purchased from Honda with just over 40000 miles on the clock almost 2 years ago. She was in overall good condition however she was showing signs of needing some TLC. Her paintwork was covered in scratches from what I imagine was just car washes and just not really caring about it. The car had service history whrere the basics had been done regularly and in accordance to service intervals but certainly not serviced to my liking. She came fitted with different brand tyres on all four corners, she was a bit choked up and hesitant under WOT and vibrated under high speed braking and had a leaky clutch slave cylinder.
Since then, I have replaced all tyres with Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymettrical 3, front and rear discs, pads and shoes have been replaced by Ferodos, calipers have been overhauled and painted. Full service completed including replacing all brake and clutch fluid, with new slave, and gearbox oil.
I spent a weekend sorting out the body work, used ironX to remove deposits, clay barred, cut back, sandpapered around the door handles, and buffed back out again, before being fully sealed.
I have installed Silent Coat on all doors and internal floor, footwells, rear parcel shelf etc. No rattles. OEM 10 speaker premium sound - speakers been replaced with Focal Access 165as and 165ac.
She has never put a foot wrong however she does have a drinking problem with petrol when you put your foot down. Likely to be selling her soon.
