Fuel economy and engine performance of Honda Accord 2008

The fuel economy ratings of the Honda Accord 2008 vary according to the engine the car's equipped with (a 2.4L 4-cylinder or V6 engine). Though the most popular is the 4-cylinder engine as it puts out good speed for less fuel, it tends to have issues with the faulty VTC actuator and loud noises in the engine. Despite all that, this 4-cylinder engine is capable of cranking about 190 horsepower which already wins over the 169 HP found in rivals like the Chevrolet Malibu or Toyota Camry and the 175 HP in Ford Fusion or Nissan Altima.

If your desire for speed is even greater, the 3.5L V6 engine can be the answer providing more power and smoothness.

The V6 engine is calculated to run 19 miles per gallon in the city and 29 mpg on the highway, while that of the 4 cylinder engine is 21 mpg in the city and 31 Mpg on the highway. Therefore, if you seek a car with more fuel economy, go for the 4 cylinder Honda Accord 2008 or a Toyota Camry 2008. If power is what you seek, then the Honda Accord 2008 with a 3.5-liter V6 engine is ideal.

Honda Accord 2008 Pros & Cons

There is a big mix of pros and cons of the Honda Accord 2008; however, let's talk about its perks first. To begin with, you get premium comfort when seated in the car with how the Japanese design a roomy interior. Then, you will definitely love it if you have a taste for off-road. Also, the 2.4-liter engine has great torque while the V6 engine is powerful and smooth. All in all, the car is generally safe and reliable.

With its strength being the roomy interior, the Honda Accord is one of the best family sedans

On the flip side, there are quite some problems you should keep an eye on. First, drivers have complained about the excess noise that seems to come from the road and also as a result of a lot of plastic used in the interior. Also, we have mentioned the actuator getting faulty. Next, there's leaking or seizure that occurs at the rear brake calipers. Moreover, the 4-cylinder engine also tends to consume a lot of engine oil. When this happens in the V6, you can simply reconfigure the PGMFI and things are back to ideal.

The good thing is that all these issues can be fixed with a few thousands of naira, which might be the reason why the car keeps itself on the list of best used cars to buy in Nigeria. As for the oil issue, you'll have to keep engine oil nearby and top up when it goes below the required level. If any of the bearings, especially that of the front wheel, gets bad, you can have them changed. You might start hearing a weird sound after running for about 50 miles per hour. It's a sign of a bad bearing. Altogether, the Honda accord 2008 is still somewhat easy to maintain and worth your money.

How to buy and maintain used Honda Accord 2008

It almost goes without saying that before you buy a used car, test drive it to know if there's anything amiss. It's also important to ask the seller certain questions like if the V6 engine timing belt has been changed or when last the engine oil was topped up. You can also look at the transmission fluid and look out for blue smoke. Blue smoke is a no-go area as the engine will most likely knock up soonest. Check the door locks too and keep an eye on-ear out for the problems we mentioned in the pros and cons.

Once the car has been bought, maintaining it won't be much of a problem as Honda spare parts can be easily found in Nigeria. Always top up the engine oil after 3-6 months with premium-grade oil as oil and coolant leaks are one of the 4 most common problems in Honda cars. Also, change the air filter often, change the timing belt for the V6 engine, and check the transmission fluid often
