I HAVE ALWAYS HAD A LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP WITH MY 2008 HONDA ACCORD EX-L (4CYL). BESIDES BEING RECALLED FOR THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION CONTROL MODULE SOFTWARE UPDATE, PREMATURE BRAKE/ROTOR WEAR (MORE THAN I CARE TO COUNT, HONESTLY), BATTERY/ELECTRICAL ISSUES, SRS MODULE FAILURE THAT HONDA REFUSED TO FIX/ADDRESS/RECALL (I HAD TO PAY $600 OUT OF POCKET ON THAT ONE), I AM NOW BATTLING WITH HIGH OIL CONSUMPTION.... CONSISTENTLY. ALTHOUGH, THIS HAS RECENTLY BEEN VOLUNTARILY RECALLED FOR THE ISSUE, I AM OUTSIDE THE 125K MILE WARRANTY TERM. I AM CURRENTLY AT 172K MILES. I RELIGIOUSLY GET AN OIL CHANGE EVERY 3K MILES. EVERY 2K MILES I NEED TO ADD A QUART OF OIL. THIS HAS BEEN AN ONGOING ISSUE SINCE AROUND 60K MILES. HONDA AND MULTIPLE MECHANICS CONFIRMED THERE IS NO OIL LEAK AND HONDA INSISTED THE CAR IS NOT BURNING IT..... DESPITE WHAT OTHER MECHANICS HAVE TOLD ME. YET, HERE I AM "BURNING" A QUART OF OIL EVERY 2K MILES. JUST RECENTLY, AFTER A FEW MINUTES OF DRIVING AND AFTER ABOUT 1500 MILES AFTER AN OIL CHANGE, MY ENGINE STARTED MAKING A "PINGING SOUND." THEN THE OIL PRESSURE LIGHT STARTED FLASHING. I IMMEDIATELY PULLED OVER AND TURNED THE ENGINE OFF TO FIND THAT THE OIL (PER THE DIPSTICK) WAS LOW AGAIN! I UNDERSTAND THE CAR IS GETTING UP THERE IN MILEAGE BUT THE THING LOOKS BRAND NEW AND I HAVE ALWAYS KEPT UP ON THE MAINTENANCE. THERE IS NO REASON IT SHOULD BE "BURNING" THE OIL AS QUICKLY AS IT IS FOR AS LONG AS IT HAS. VERY DISAPPOINTED IN HONDA NOT ADDRESSING THE ISSUE WHEN I BROUGHT IT TO THEIR ATTENTION SEVERAL TIMES IN THE PAST. NOW THEY ISSUE A RECALL AND CUT THE MILEAGE OFF AT 125K? LIKE I SAID, LOVE/HATE. I WILL NOT BE PURCHASING ANOTHER ONE.
