#4 of 5 About paint....
Sep 19, 2012 (11:59 am)
Have had Honda's since 1979 and will concur about paint, except...
We've always had the ones with a "metallic" composition to it. Gray scale cars.
Bought a used, 1998 Accord that was just plain white. To this day, it looks great when cleaned and waxed and the paint even "feels" thicker. OK, I know that's not scientific!
SO figures that the difference in paint from something used to get that metallic look and regular paint may the the deal.
Anyone have something that is not metallic that seems to have a thin coat?
Or did we just get a one-off with the Accord?

I have a 2003 Honda Odyssey bought new, (now at 65,000 miles) and I swear they just quickly pulled the van through a fine mist of watered down paint and rolled it out the door!
Even the slightest little ping will tear the paint down to the primer..my front hood 6" behind the deflector all the way to the front windshield has no shine left and looks like it's been sand blasted. Road rash on the hood is a new one for me.
Don't even get me started on the Honda Odyssey's time bomb automatic transmissions.
Just Google "Honda Odyssey transmission problems"
(BTW we also have a 2007 Nissan Versa hatchback bought new and there still isn't a mark on the hood, it's still running quiet and comfortable like day one)
