You don't hear much about the Accord having oil dilution issues.

If it's a lease, Camry or Accord are fine.

If you are buying, I would go with Camry for longterm. I would absolutely stay away from the 1.5T and there are reports of the 2.0 having oil dilution issues but not as common (even in the new RDX has some oil dilution).

No, never been fixed. Honda only updated the software to keep oil dilution to a "acceptable level". Thus its down to how much you truly trust Honda that their update mitigates this enough to not significantly wear out the engine in the long term.

I think many direct.injection/turbos from other makes have motor oil dilution too but much moreobvious on Honda's 1.5T.

Maybe the German's have a defeat device for the scent. :)

Thanks to everyone for their insight.

I am interested in Buying a V4 (not leasing). I test drove Accord 1.5T and like it but i will probably stay away from it. I will look for Camry.

I heard that 2018 Camry had a rough shifting (transmission). Is it resolved now? Any other known issues in V4?

The Camry has a inline 4 cylinder. Vertical 4, or V4 are basically non existent.

As far as you understood the point, its okay. Let's not try expecting everyone to be technically correct at all times.

I appreciate any feedback or insights on the issue.

The Accord never had many reports of oil dilution since the engine/turbo is mapped and tuned differently from the CRV.
