  3. Hi , I am the proud owner of a 2006 Honda Accord CDTI EX , I can honestly say after 3 weeks it is the finest car I have ever owned , I started in the 70s as a learner with a MK2 Cortina , then I passed my test in 1982 and bought another , since then I have Audi 80 , Cavaliers , Rover 75 and 600 , Nissan Primeras and before the Honda the worst car I have ever bought a Peugeot 607 , that was a money pit , but this car is like driving a Rolls Royce compared with nearly all my other cars , I forgot to mention I was in the motor trade for 30 years as a auto electrician till wear and tear on my neck nearly put me in a wheelchair , I still need a stick , but anyway I may be able to make a contribution to this site , I believe when you join the owners club you become part of a family , just to say what qualifications I have C&G Part 1 Mechanics , C&G Auto Electrical , C&G Alarms and micro processors , C&G Fuel Injection also various manufacturers courses , plus various health and safety courses with my employer West Yorkshire Police, I am still a member of the IMI (institute of the motor industry ) as a AMIMI , but to cut to the chase with being out of the industry for so long 16 years , there is many apprentices that know more about the modern car than me , I am a relic from days gone by when dynamos were the in thing , don't get me wrong I am not a bighead , but its nice to remember what I achieved . Now to get to the nitty gritty , what do I look for on my vehicle , I have seen something about a manufacturing fault causing problems with the VSA which like Electronic Stability Programme , could someone please elaborate , and is there anything else to look for or avoid , many thanks for reading this and if you reply thanks again .
