I bought this car new 13 years ago this month. It has 164,000 miles on it, and like so many other Accord owners I can say it's never had a major mechanical problem. It also gets very good gas mileage. The only real complaint I have is that it's so reliable that it makes it hard to justify getting another car! After 13 years it's acquiring a lot of cosmetic damage, but mechanically it's still seems to be in perfect shape, and since I'm only driving about 7000 miles a year right now I could probably keep it for another decade easily. It's hard to believe there could be a better car for anyone who ranks reliability and low maintenance at the top of what they're looking for in a car.
Almost every mechanical aspect of the car. Best thing about the Accord is that you never have to think about it except when it's time to change the oil and the tires.
A better sound system would have been nice (went aftermarket for that). Also the defrosting/defogging never worked very well.
