I think you got it right -very poor design. I wonder how many oil changes it takes for the average oil pan to have its threads stripped. This is a good reason to pay the dealership for all oil...

Guys, I am fully aware the Accord is not a sports car. In no way is it as fun or pure as a GTI. But a short wheelbase, lighter weight, agile racecar is not what I want anymore. I now prefer a more...

Yes, perhaps in a $31,000+ autobahn version a few more gadgets might be nice, but not in the base model. I bought the base GTI because of its simplicity. To me, less is more. For my preference,...
