I have had (8) Honda Accords since the 1970's. I personally drove all of them to about 125,000 miles. Two were purchased by a neighbor - he took one to 280,000 miles and was pissed he didn't make 300,000. The trunk rusted through and would not support the gas tank. The 2nd he currently owns and it has about 240,000 miles. None of these cars has needed any injector work (admittedly some had carbs) and only one fuel pump was replaced.
I just don't see the need...or benefit.
By the way mixed into the (8) Honda's was one Mercedes that spent more time in the shop that all the Accords combined. One was enough.

I own both Accord V6 96 model and several MB vehicles and couldn't agree with you more about the reliability of the Accord. Only the older MB OM616/617 diesels can do better than the Accords but not overall. MB gas engines don't match up to Accord. I have used M-1 from day one on my Accord and Delo 400 on my diesel MBs, I have been quite happy with the high mileage performance of both.
