#4540 of 5901 what is the 100000 service for an 04 Accord (LX) - 4 cylinder
Mar 02, 2009 (1:42 pm)
Please help. My husband accidentally pitched the owners manual for the car. I just passed the 100000 mile mark on my car. Our local dealership is telling us we need to spend $1000+ on all these maintenance items. Can anyone tell me what the suggested 100,000 mile service appointment entails? Is all of this really necessary? Thanks!!

The 4 cylinder has no timing belt, so I don't see justification for $1000+ bill. If it was a V6, the timing belt would be more than half of that estimate. Do you have a list of what is included in this maintenance?

"THe CCA, etc. on the OEM is borderline. I think the OEM was ~430, and the replacement was ~750-800"
I have found no replacement options where the CCA is any greater than 500. The 51R model (correct size for the Accord) seems to be pretty much standard for the industry -- probably because they are mostly made by the same manufacturer. Even the exceptional battery, Optima Yellowtop (supposedly a better choice, if you can afford it) is listed at only 450 CCA.
For my money, what matters most is a battery which keeps its charge when not in use (like, say, parking at the airport for a week.) If Sears made the 51R in a Diehard Platinum, I think I would be willing to pay the premium for it. Unfortunately, they don't -- at least, not yet.

Are you still under warranty? If so, definitely take it to the dealer. It may be an actuator problem.

I had the inspection done again at Midas and they were saying the brake pads and rotors on all wheels look good. Mechanic says squeaking sound is okay and I have to live with it (Surprisingly)
OR They told me I can have rotors rotated and put Ceramic pads on it to reduce the Squeaking but they are not guaranteeing anything

I would take it to the Honda dealer,tell them about the issue, and see what they say. I would prefer Honda to do any required brake work vs. Midas.

Just had the same thing on the passenger side. Dealer did it free--took three minutes. I bought the bulb and the service writer installed it himself. He did not remove the battery--just reached in the front fender through the hood. I have an '05.
