Nl Experts, Pls Whats The Fear In V6 Engine?.

There have been so much horror when I see cars on the road with v6 engine cos the mechanics keep complaining that its not a good car experience.

I have taken 3 different mechanics to check up v6 cars (toyota camry 99, honda accord 01 and acura legend) and suprising to me their comments are all the same on those v6 engine cars, all encouraged me to get a v4 instead.

My curiosity excited when i saw a v8 engine jeep and wonder why someone will buy it when v6 engine is bad as they say.

Please the experts in the house, share your knowledge with me cos i have an offer for a v6 honda accord 01 at hand and dont want to take the risk if indeed v6 engines are bad.

THANKS

dnt mind the inexperienced mechanics@poster, The advantages of havin a v6 is that extra horsepower you have unda hood, Superb power to hav in an suv, The dwnside is gas consumption,  A trip in a v6 from racecourse cms- ajah will cost u about N1200 fuel(without a/c) as against N400 in a v4, If u ave got the money go for it, I service my v6 in a reliable fillin station in ikoyi@ very affordable rates,  Cheers

@Poster:

There's nothing wrong at all with a V6 engine. Infact, they're better on 9ja roads. The only thing is that they consume more fuel.

Remember some years back, when this 9ja mechanic discouraged everyone from buying an automatic cars. What do you see more on the road now? Automatic cars.

They are just been lazy and are not versatile.

Now we have electronics, hybrid cars, let's see how they'll handle that.

Nigerian mechanics are inexperienced with the workings of a V6 / V8, and from all accounts, are unwilling to learn

I personally prefer engines with more than the regular 4 cylinders (I4, not V4). I currently run an Audi A4 4,2L V8 32V quattro, and would never go back to an I4 motor.

I was like that until I started using a V6.I can never use anything less again.

I had my fears for V6 engines too, but no more. The I4's are relatively economical in gas, but the drive of a V6 is no where that of the I4 engines.

Most mechanics dont want to have the patience to study and know the welwithal of the V6 engines and hence the myrth. Epecially on highways the V6 really brings out the driving exp.

You just need to have a good maintenance culture for your Car, read more, study your car, know what your mechanic does, And you are good to go,

I prefare the camry though!

have been driving V6 engine car for sometime and no issues ph.d. Only thing is that it consumes a little more than 4 cylinder car. I just think they don't have the expertise for V6 the way they have for 4 cylinder cars. Go ahead and buy your accord. It's a nice car whether V6 or I4. Just do routine maintenance and it will last.
