I'm sad to report that a car I've loved and cared for with meticulous maintenance has died this weekend. My 2006 Accord EX V6 has been my best car ever. I've given it synthetic oil changes, ATF changes, coolant flushes, etc. for its whole life. I had the timing belt, water pump, tensioner, roller pulleys, etc. changed with OEM parts by good mechanics at 100,000 and 196,000 miles. Well, this past Friday with a mere 4,700 miles on the latest timing belt and water pump, the belt broke and blew up the engine I assume since it's an interference engine. Its final mileage is 200,700. We've debated this before, but I still say a timing belt on an interference engine is a terrible design. If any one part of the timing belt kit fails, the engine is ruined. Everything still works on my Accord still except the engine. The black leather seats are still beautiful. I had it towed back to my house, and it breaks my heart to see it sitting in the carport more or less dead.
