The VTC actuator wasn't a problem on all the 4 cylinders, just some of them. If they took 5 hours, it may have been done before the revised procedures were issued or they may not have been made aware of revised procedures.

Some 4 cylinder and 6 cylinder 8th generation Accords had an oil consumption problem (some worst than others), it wasn't because of short commutes. They even had a software update for the 4 cylinders to try to fix it; but, most people will tell you it didn't make a difference.
