    My 2008 with dealer-provided winter tires does the same. I confirmed with GPS and speeding ticket both agreeing... It's ok with summer tires.

    If we take the 2004-2007 Accord, it's the same generation of vehicule so, if the problem exist in 2004-6, it is possibly present in 2007. Strange they didn't base this on the car's generation.

    I honetly have no clue what you're talking about in the 1st paragraph....

    This has nothing to do with a recall on the cars, its an odometer scam.

    ?? What don't you understand?

    My 2008 Honda, when I have winter tires (16"), overestimate mileage by about 4% but, with summer tires (17"), the odometer is spot-on. This is even when accounting for the wheel size difference when picking the winter tires, so the overall size difference is minimal.

    I bring the topic above to note the impact of tires size on the odometer. If Honda calibrated the odometers with 16" tires (EX, EX-L and 6 cylinders models for the 2004-7 Accords) and then installed the same odometers on the DX and LX 4 cylinders, that's the cause of the problem. Whatever this was the case and it was voluntary or not, the court will decide.

    I know it's not a recall.

    This lawsuit stops at 2006 except for one model (not Accord).

    The Accord 2004-2007 are the same generation. Look at the cars, they look the same and have the same components. Honda calls them the 7th generation.

    If the 2004-2006 Accords have a "scamming" odometer, the 2007 Accords, since they are sharing the same components and are the same generation, they probably do have a "scamming" odometer so, I was wondering why the lawsuit was on "fixed" years and not generation-dependent.
