Anyways, hi everyone. Hoping to learn everything I can about my blind purchase simply because I believe in Honda.

And sit down before you read this..... it's $613 . Yes, you read that correctly it's like 4 hours of labor because they adjust/ check valve clearance plus all fluids changed. They have to remove the seats and the firewall behind the seats to get to everything ?

Honda must have a reason, because after that you don’t change oil for 1200 miles

I don’t know how you would put 20 hours on it in only 100 miles I had 109 miles and 9 hours ?

Must be regional pricing. My local dealers quoted 419.

Hi Big had, that is roughly the same the local dealer quoted me here in Florida. I internet video coupled with maintenance manual to do the work. Mine was used 15 hours on it and the dealer did the first two maintenance updates before I picked it up. Replacing the fluids and filters is no big deal. If you have not adjusted valves you might get help from a mechanically inclined friend or have the dealer just do the valve adjustments. That way you an have more money for accessories!

I’m fully capable of performing the work. Just too lazy these days. Besides, I kinda want the records in Honda’s database.?

well did you read the manual that states the break in also? the first 15 miles? then the 100 mile service. i plan to to drive my talon local only until after the 100 mile service. i dont like to gamble on break ins. no one should. but its your money.

Just guess I am a bit different, I actually like working on mine and enjoy keeping it in good shape. No worries, one way or the other they are fun to drive.
