Bought as certified Honda with 35k miles. This Accord wagon has never left me stranded. It always started with the exception of one time in the driveway due to an old battery that was defective. I perform regular maintenance, 7.5k mi synthetic oil, 90k timing belts/Water pump, 30k transmission service Honda Z1 ATF, regular brake and other fluid changes. Car runs like new. In the past 3 years have replaced both CV axles (Boots cracked), exterior drive belts (were original), ABS reservoir (leaking seal) and HVAC Evaporator. Also over 10 years replaced two sets of tires and two sets of brake pads and two batteries. Have CD changer and put 4 new 4-way Pioneer TS-A1682R stereo speakers.
Good fuel economy 22-25 MPG with ability to transport 5 people or many items in the back of the wagon. Stereo is excellent again with upgraded speakers and all options work after 12 years.
Higher capacity HVAC. AC is a little weak in very hot days with full load of people although this may be due to the need for the after market window tinting needing to be redone. Better factory window tinting.
