Approx $15,000 over the life of the car (I bought it in 2002)

Just sold it as I had to move on and didn't want to keep up with the aging car and its potential landmines

For those of you with XIs, I'm telling you to check CAREFULLY the front drive axles. I posted above on this. I had the same stoplight vibration and while everyone here assured me that it was...

With all due respect, there is a big difference between the V6 and the I4 Accord. I didn't drive a manual, but the CVT on the I4 is very universally praised for being "seamless and just like an...

I see - basically you're saying that to get a "move up" from your current ZHP, you'd need to go 3 or 4 series BMW. That makes sense. The 325xi and the 330i-zhp are two different cars indeed! ...

Nobody said a 2014 Accord is better than a 2014 BMW. But I would indeed question the value proposition of a $45,000 BMW 328i vs a $27,000 Accord V6. The Accord does 0-60 in 5.8 seconds (on 87...

Yeah I agree (obviously). I never much liked the past two iterations of the Accord, but on the 2013+ they made it look much nicer. It's still not E46 nice.....honestly the E46 is just a great...

I'm telling ya dude - it is the axle I'll bet. Mine was horrible and a new axle fixed it. But you need a NEW AXLE not just new boots and grease. It's the metal splines or something that were...

Mine (with the bad axle) would get dragged down about 200 rpm as well while it vibrated. Like the trans was just dragging on the engine a bit.
