No mechanical problems at all since I purchased the car. Adding a few after market accessories, like new lights and wheels, make it look at home beside some current cars; and a few engine tweaks make it run with them too. When I purchased the car 5 years ago, I compared it to Grand Ams, Civics, Corollas, Sentras, Cavaliers, Sunfires, etc and none of those cars could match the overall package of the Accord. The Accord offered the best combination of practicality (seats 5 passengers comfortably), fuel economy (28mpg), style, and fun-to-drive. Clearly, it's the next best thing to buying a brand new Accord, and a great value for anyone looking to buy a first car.
(1) Even though it's over 10 years old, it still runs better than some brand new cars. (2) There are loads of after market parts available for those who like customizing their cars. (3) Great fuel economy.
Could use a set of cup holders for the rear passengers.
