I bought my Accord SE Sedan in Oct. '98
with 48,500 miles. I've added almost
100K miles since, and it has been
extremely reliable and consistent. The
leather interior and extra 15 HP and 5
pd.-ft. of torque over the DX, EX, and
LX models are nice, too. I think it
accelerates better than our 2002
Mustang V6 convertible. No major
maintenance other than timing belt.
Sometimes doesn't start because of
typical problem with fuel pump relay,
but that's a known problem, and I just
key off/on until it goes.
Blue/green paint looks great, leather
interior is softer than newer
interiors. Mileage is about 25-26
city/hwy. Decent acceleration, smooth
Braking at speed causes steering wheel
shake. May need rotors, but I was told
this is typical of all Hondas.
