Buying Honda Accord 2008 2.4 Advice Needed - urgent

Postby musicpls » Mon Mar 21, 2016 10:09 am

Hello Accordian,

I am looking into buying a used car either a 2.4 Honda Accord 2008/09 model or a 2.0 Honda Civic 2008/09 model and swayed more towards the Accord.

A dealer actually told me that the Accord suffers from vibration issues when idle in "D" mode and a search on the internet did showed few drivers experiencing that as well.

Can any bros here advice is that a issue that I should really concerned with? or it's just minor?

Have the intention to get the car by this week.

Thanks!

This might be too late, but just in case you're still considering the accord, yes there are some vibrations when idling in D. I bought my 2.4l used and have experienced it personally before. Turned out to be worn engine mounts which I eventually replaced.

Hi musicals ,

Did you buy the accord in the end?

Hi Vynx,

I'm facing the same vibration issue as well. May i ask where and how much did you change your engine mountings?

Hey skywire,

You can probably head to just about any workshop to have the issue properly diagnosed before committing to a repair. I suggest you go to one that you're familiar with. I had mine diagnosed and fixed at E-care Auto, 51 Ubi Avenue 1 #01-29 Paya Ubi Industrial Park S(408933).

Hi Lynx,

Mind sharing the costs?

I had it done quite a little while ago so I can't really recall the exact price. Think it was around 800++ for all 4 mounts, inclusive of labour. Definitely cheaper than going to KM I think.

Bro Skywire, did you manage to resolve the issue? Saw a 2.4l Accord being sold by some one with your nick on Carousell. Is that yours?
