Started throwing a code indicating the timing was out of spec. "DTC P0341: CMP Sensor A and CKP Sensor Incorrect Phase Detected" The blanket fix is to replace the VTC oil control solenoid, VTC actuator, cam chain and auto tensioner. I've always changed the oil on time with synthetic, including the filter everytime. I believe this defect is indicative of a larger quality issue in these engines. There is a TSB related to this even though it wasn't possible to prove it was the cause. A timing chain should not need to be replaced at the same frequency of a timing BELT.

P0420 code - bank1 of engine, emissions below threshold. Common problem with cars at higher KM/miles I believe. Could be the downstream sensor, or the catalytic converter, or some combination. Seems fuel and oil level related too. With the piston ring problem that the 8th gen Accord has (many documented cases), they burn oil. I believe this makes them more susceptible to fouling/impacting catalytic converter. I am monitoring as light goes on for afew days, then off for several weeks in some cases - will replace the oil and rear sensor soon. Also added some 50/50 coolant to radiator. Did not do a flush.

P0420 code which can be a bunch of things - catalytic converter (only 1 in 2010 Accord 4cyl), oxygen/emissions sensors before the catalytic converter and after. Intermittent problem for around 6 months until I decided to replace the o2 sensors first. About 250-300 in parts. Also did the transmission fluid drain and fill at this time and new spark plugs a month earlier. Code went out and stayed out after the o2 sensor replace, so that was obviously the issue.

P0303 Cylinder 3 misfire - second time the car has thrown this code/error in 80K miles. Problem fixed under class-action settlement at no cost. Plugs replaced, piston rings damaged as a result of issue and replaced. Drivers back support had come loose inside seatback and would 'collapse' when weight was put onto it, making it cave in and become nearly impossible to sit in for more than 30 minutes. Upon return from piston ring/misfire repairs there was a strong shudder when AC compressor was on. Took it to dealer to ensure they were aware problem was new since pickup. They claimed it only needed a tightened motor mount and sent me off. Earlier cause of rattle post misfire repair returned as a mis-installed tensioner pulley and when the dealer was driving it off to the service lot the pulley completely failed and it threw all belts off. 3rd trip originating from misfire.

Replaced all four door seals on the body. Three of the four were pulling away from the frame. First they tried adjusting them--didn't work so they replaced them. Driver's side door leaking water through speaker grill area when sitting during hard rain. Unable to replicate. Drivers door handle occasionally sticks/hard to open. TSB repair/adjustment. Will be taking it back to do the same to the other three doors. "B" pillar trim panel rattle. Said was adjusted but is still making noise. One of the plenum bolts (valve cover area?) was leaking oil. Tightened and cleaned.

Same as above... B pillar is still making ticking noises while driving. Service manager said they had adjusted it again and suggested spraying some expanding foam onto the clip before installation. May try that next... Found water that we thought was coming in thru the driver's side door was coming in through an unsealed seam in the firewall between the engine and cabin. Tech sealed with silicon. Then two days later in a rain storm it was leaking again. Will return...

When car shut off and restarted only check engine light appears. Technician resets but this solution only lasts a day. Check engine light comes on. Coil replaced at cost to customer of $123 Cdn.

I was left stranded. Starter appeared to have gone out. I had no oil on my dipstick. Still had 60 percent left on my mileage minder for service. Car is still in shop. It has been 34 days waiting on Honda to MAYBE repair engine/ oil burning! I picked the car up from the dealer and the damn thing stalled, then caught fire. I pulled over, called 911, and watched it burn to a crisp. Now, I am dealing with the dealers insurance company. Which has been a two month ordeal of pure hell.
