Also you have to think big picture, people on fourms like this is just a tiny tiny fraction of the amount of owners. I wouldn't take super seriously just how good or bad a vehicle is by what you read from fourms by people you can't verify are being totally honest with what they write. Somebody could have a true horror story experience but fail to mention they took it into a river or something dumb for example, Nobody wants to feel like a fool.Clarification: I just re-read my last response and the way I wrote it; it may give the impression that it comes across as a criticism. That’s not what was intended. I wouldn’t criticize anyone for contemplating upgrading/trading their vehicle for any reason, especially if they feel it may become problematic down the road. No one knows how their vehicle runs better than they do, so go with your gut and do what makes you most comfortable.
I read a lot of the horror stories on this forum and sometimes it makes me wonder if I made the right decision and I wonder if I should trade mine up. I’m not one to trade my vehicles in every few years, I stick with the maintenance and drive them forever until they die. I’ve never had any issues whatsoever thus far with my EcoD and I periodically send my motor oil out for analysis, and it has always come back good. So, I set those worries aside until I have reason to believe something is up with mine. Wish everyone a long haul with their EcoD’s.
That is of course good advice. Nonetheless, I own two Hondas in addition to my Eco. Of course I follow the user forums for those vehicles as well. You see plenty of posts about the common problems all vehicle owners have with a given platform, or any ICE in general.Also you have to think big picture, people on fourms like this is just a tiny tiny fraction of the amount if owners.
