Question about 2004 Honda Accord
The car has only 65,000 miles and no accidents. I have read other problems that the tensioners malfunction on these cars. Is this a well known problem about these cars? A timing chain should last forever, at least for over 100,000 miles. Before I go "take on" Honda, is there anything that Honda is doing about this apparent defect?
Your vehicle would actually have a timing belt on it not a chain. Honda recommends replacement at around 90k-105k (miles) along with water-pump ,tensioner and tensioner bearing, depending on climate and normal/severe driving conditions. they have had some issues with some of the hydraulic tensioners, 6 cylinder model, failing prematurely. Depending on the dealership ,and if you can show a record of adddiquate maintenance records (you have kept up on normal maintenance) and failure is not due to anything other than part failure, honda will most likely agree to a warranty of the part itself with you paying for labor cost due to fact of outside normal warranty specs.
