Anyone have thoughts on tires?
It's time for my 06 SE V6 to get new tires, and I'm going to go through Costco for their free rotation and road hazard warranty.

I'll choosing between the following tires:
1. Michelin Primacy MXM4 (V speed rated)
2. Michelin Pilot A/S 3 (W speed rated)
3. Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus (V speed rated).

Turanza Serenity Plus' are what is mounted on the car right now (got it used, so the tires were about half worn) - I've found that the snow traction, wet grip, and handling response have some room for improvement.

In terms of what I'm looking for, I'm looking for a good balance between noise and performance.

There have been recalls and such, but generally, only the 06+ models have better transmissions.

With the TL, the 07+ models used the RL transmission.

Don't get me wrong haha, they're still made of glass.. just stronger glass.

I've done the cartridge filter and fluid change every two years, and did the pressure switches as well.

i have an 04 nearing 170k as my daily. Anything at 200k+ will need to be replaced afaik. No recalls on them and it's a known issue with the tranny.

STAY FAR FAR AWAY. I would not recommend.

If you can get an 06+ do it. Anything below 06 isn't worth it.

Have you done the filter and switches?

It's a super easy cartridge filter for $28. (P/N 25450-RAY-003)
http://www.driveaccord.net/forums/15...rformance.html

The switches are a bit more expensive, but super accessible behind the fender liner from the front driver's side.
# 28600-RAY-003 (3rd)
# 28610-RAY-003 (4th)
These have been superseded with part numbers ending in -014 from what I can remember.

Meh. It gets me to work, to the gym etc

Gas is decent

Whoever said "hondas are reliable" is either full of shit or im just unlucky as fuk lol

-driver side lock stopped working one year
- passenger side lock stopped working the next year
- waterpump busted in the parking lot while i was work
- timing belt got soaked by coolant
- side engine mount broke (known issue but isn't a recall)
- rear motors had to be replaced
- rear calipers seized
- headlight bulbs fried easily. When the left side gave out, then the right a few weeks later
- approached a roadblock, cop thought i was gonna drive through it so he pulls out his baton and hits my rear and now there's a huge dent.

And add the random door dings, dents, bumps etc. 04 coupe is meh.

For 7th gen Accord v6's, the weakest component is probably the auto transmission in the 03-05s (most reported failures, but there are still numerous high mileage accords running fine with original v6 transmission). Like others have mentioned, should probably check out the 06-07s or the 4 cylinder (no transmission issues, no timing belt, but high mileage ones may burn oil).

The v6 autos do require more maintenance: transmission fluid drain and refills, filter change, and pressure switches replacement. However, even with maintenance it can still randomly fail.. The type of driving (traffic vs highway), driving style, and weather (hot temperatures) also plays a part on wearing down the transmission from what I've read.

My 05 v6 auto with 135k has been pretty reliable. Aside from routine maintenance items, I did have to replace my starter and fix a minor steering o-ring issue (easy fix).

Where do you purchase your Dw-1 fluid, filter, and pressure switches? With the current CAD/USD rate, I don't want to drive down to states to pick up parts anymore, do you/anyone else know any Canadian retailers to purchase from?

I usually go through Pacific Honda for parts. They've been pretty good with either asking how they're doing on price, or giving me a discount off the bat without asking.
