    Honda is a young Japanese auto-building company, it was founded in 1948. Now the concern, besides cars, also builds motorcycles, planes and is engaged in robotics. Many experts consider Honda cars to be one of the most reliable.

    Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) is Honda's term for its variable displacement technology Owners of vehicles equipped with VCM frequently face vibration problems due to engine motor mount malfunction while ECO mode is enabled.

The engine's drive by wire throttle allows the engine management computer to smooth out the engine's power delivery, making the system nearly imperceptible on some vehicles. We don't know where we are, or where we're going -- but we're making good time. These symptoms do not seem anywhere that serious compared to the spring dilemma.

    Questions on how we spend our money and our time - consumer goods and services, home and vehicle, leisure and recreational activities. VCM improves gas mileage my shutting down some cylinders at cruising speeds to use less fuel. There is chatter on various websites that suggests that some owners of these vehicles have experienced noise, vibration or shudder, and also engine sludge and abnormal oil consumption.

    This is apparently due to defects in the VCM system in which these symptoms occur due to the cylinders that kick on and off at certain speeds. All kinds of "fixes" seem to have been applied but unknown if problem has been resolved. I'm a long term Honda guy and have been contemplating purchase of a new Honda or Acura with this V-6 engine, so I'm rather concerned about the issue. So far, I've only seen it mentioned on the internet but I've not heard from anyone personally that they've experienced this problem.

    Only personal feedback I have is from a relative who has owned a couple Odysseys with that engine and he says he's never noticed anything. Would like to hear from anyone with one of these vehicles whether they've had any problems of this nature. Really want to buy a new Honda or Acura but afraid to move ahead until I have more information on this issue. We don't know where we are, or where we're going -- but we're making good time.

    Oil consumption has been normal. Gas mileage is okay, but not great. However, two weeks ago the engine had a fouled spark plug caused by oil leaking into one of the cylinders. There was a factory notice on this and Honda fixed it free of charge. The solution was to replace four piston rings for the variable cylinders.

    I have yet to see an Acura with VCM-2 have a significant issue. I'm concerned, however, that it's just because there are fewer Acuras with VCM. The drive train has a 7 year, k mile warranty. If you buy one, make certain to document the service history well. As concerned as I am about the problem itself, I'm disappointed by the way Honda has handled some of the complaints.

    Really, it had to come to a class action suit??? They should be ashamed. The mileage gain isn't that significant, but it may be on a fleet basis. Having said that, I have little doubt that some people don't check their engine oil enough, relying on the Maintenance Minder, which exacerbated the problem.

    There's a reason owner's manuals advise to check the oil level at EVERY fill-up; apparently that reason is to allow car manufacturers to slither out of their warranties. If I were in the market for a new MDX, I'd wait for a , and allow the Alabama plant to do their minor model tweaks--there is usually a big quality up with the 2nd model year, with most engineering changes going unnoticed to the average buyer. No engine issues whatsoever sliding doors, power steering pump, brakes, air conditioning, and PAX tires are issues Bad: No discernible gas mileage benefit.

    That being said, my engine was first gen VCM. Essentially it works as either a 3 cylinder or 6 cylinder. It rarely helps above 60MPH on the highway.

    Since I drive MPH it does me no good. In fact, my Honda is the worst car I have ever owned for actual gas mileage vs real world. I believe we average around The newer versions are more sophisticated and switch between cylinders.
