Bought the car with 28K miles in 2000 and still drive this car daily with now 228K!!
In fact, the car went the past two years without anything but oil changes until it was time to replace the timing belt again.
It is amazing the clutch hasn't needed replaced, nor has any other major item engine wise other than a starter over the years.
CV joints went out at 180K, and the wheel bearings are getting close now.
My wife drives and 07 sedan and my stock radio is a nicer system.
I think the brakes on this car are better than the 07!
And it survived a collision with a 6-point buck this year and all I needed was a headlight and a hood!
Exhausts - Never seem to last more than 3-4 years!
Why the passenger side shows signs of rust and not the drivers side is a mystery.
The back quarter panels will rust before this car will ever stop running.
Otherwise, if you're looking for a car to trick out or save money for reliable transportation, this model Accord is for you!
When you get in your car, you should expect it to work. Also, with routine and preventative maintenance, you should expect NOTHING to go wrong with the car. My Honda has been running strong for 3 straight years. I changed out the plugs, hoses, added a new muffler and oxygen sensor and at 174,000 miles it is running perfectly. I will definitely buy another Honda when the time comes, but I plan to run mine into the ground.
Moon roof is flawless after 12 years
Make carjackers not want to steal them (only slightly kidding)
