And I still redline regularly... I have no qualms redlining my car. It goes with veracity! I have complete confidence it will redline without problems, and if it has problems, the 108k warranty will be there. The sounds it makes at WOT is still great. And that power! It really makes a lot of power for a FWD machine. The only pitfall is the abysmal brakes... They are rubbish! Too much power for single caliper brakes... Come on Honda! I wore my rear brakes out because I used my e-brake too much... To slow down. It's all good, I love my Accord 2 door V6; it's fast and suits me well.

I agree, I wore my brakes out because I drove my FWD like a RWD. I now own a RWD car and understand the engineering differences. Still need to replace those rear brakes, cos they sound like s**t in reverse. I now KNOW how to drive a FWD car as it should... I baby it basically and can throttle my LS400!

OP here. Got my first CEL, VSC, & VCM lights on at the same time. 93,000 miles. Took it to the dealer I bought it from. They said misfire on cylinder 3 and bad plugs 1-4, plus an ECM update. Waiting to go pick it up. Not happy about this. From what I read, when this happens it doesn't always go away. So we will see. Will keep you updated. Soon the car will be traded for my Mom's 2002 Acura TL Type-S and she can deal with it... Just don't want a payment anymore.

Honda called to let me know my starter needed replacement. $25 deductible for warranty. Fixed the fouled spark plugs and updated computer. Nice!

We wore the rear brakes out far more than the fronts on our Acuras. Normal driving, not abusive.
