122,000 miles isn't particularly high although its not unknown to need a turbo or a clutch by this point

What to watch out for

DPF problems with 2.2 i-DTEC.

Clutch slip may occur on 2.2 i-DTEC diesels for various reasons. Normal life for a clutch is 80k – 120k miles, vut clutches have been failing in as little as 10k – 30k miles. Honda service bulletin (number 1269) tells the dealer to check the cruise control switch before removing the gearbox, and the self adjusting mechanism before removing the clutch assembly. The dealer has to collect information about the clutch and then has to get Honda UK engineers to examine the findings to establish whether the clutch failure is the result of abuse, normal wear, or a manufacturing problem.

Rusting of sunroof has become very common on the 2008-2013 UK spec Accord.

Honda UK is claiming it is not covered by Honda Happiness used car warranty. This is a major issue on Honda Accord Owners Club site See: Advisable to get the dealer to apply silicon grease to the metal frame to try & prevent recurrence.

: Honda is replacing rusty 8 th gen 2009 MY Accord sunroofs free of charge and reimbursing owners who had to make a contribution.
