#18224 of 32220 CARMAN, never received answer -Question on my leased Accord that ends soon
Nov 10, 2007 (7:28 am)
I have a 2006 Honda Accord EX V6 sedan which is on a 2yr lease with 15k/yr. My lease ends Dec 12, 2007 and my car has been kept in great condition, no one has ever sat in the back of the car, the current mileage on the vehicle is 23,800 miles. My question is when I go back to the dealer and decide to lease another Honda is their any way I can ask the dealer for more money for my lease return and use my lease return as leverage in the negotiation. Can the dealership buy my lease return? Thank you very much.

The dealer has 3.5% holdback + volume rebate, this translates $2000+ gain invoice price

Untill this SAT,Nov 10 McGrath City Honda is beating any quote from any dealer by $500. You can call any dealer and ask 300 below invoice I guess you will get it easily if the car is available on the lot. I do not know what got changed but the prices have come down for this car.

#18230 of 32220 08 Accord V6 Issues <---Please read before YOUR PURCHASE

Read below carefully, please verify if VIBRATION on V6 is a big deal. One suggests that buyers need to wait at least 2nd to 3rd batches shipment from Honda.
I confuse that I did not test it on free way with >70 mile/hour. I need to do my due diligence on this.
Please post anything you find during the test drive.

That said, I'm sure it can be felt a bit (like transmission shift can be, especially with colder weather).
It can be felt ALOT. its ridiculous and my prediction is MANY more unsatisfied V6 owners will come forward. The vibration is very noticable and the surging is uncomfortable. Having a "clue" comes from experienceing the issue that others and myself are feeling. Your lucky that you have not had this issue,thats great. but the new engine has issues,, plain and simple and people need to be aware before they buy.

I was waiting on something like this as everyone knows this is a totally revamped car. I am planning to buy V4 and I was surprised with the engine noise. I was not conviced with the fact that adding HP will create a engine noise. Vibration on V6 is new to me. I have not driven V4 on highway but now I will do before I make a purchase.

Sorry, but you are not going to find a V4 in Honda's lineup. They are I4s. (Inline, not V-shaped banks of cylinders. The Honda six-cylinder engines are V6s. The Honda four-cylinder engines are I4s.
#18233 of 32220 2008 V6 Engine Vibration and Surging
Nov 10, 2007 (10:20 pm)
"The vibration is very noticable and the surging is uncomfortable." which was reported in other messages, has anyone taken this issue back to the dealer? If so what were the results?
Were they able to identify the cause?
Were they able to fix the problem?
I have the opinion that the surging might be caused by cylinders shutting down or turning on again. But vibration is another issue. The V6 is equipped with special engine mounts which are designed to counter any vibration when two or three of the cylinders shut down. Perhaps this is the problem, the nengine mounts are not doing their job of damping the engine vibration when running on 4 or 3 cylinders.
I have been trying to decide between the 4 and the V6. Both have ample power. Perhaps this has helped me make my decision on a 4.
The dealers in the Baltimore area are offering INTERNET pricing at 198 above invoice for the V6 and about 700 over invoice for the 4. Have not been able to get a price below invoice.
