1998 Honda Accord LX V6 4dr Sedan


Review

At 62,000 miles the transmission gave out, cost $1,300 to replace with another vtec, which after 15,000 gave out again. It has no take off speed and is dangerous to drive with an unreliable transmission. It neutralized in the middle of the high- way. Gas mileage sucks, wont buy anther one.


Best Features

Comfy drivers' seat, easy controls


Worst Features

Fix the transmission for customers with this problem

1998 Honda Accord LX V6 4dr Sedan


Review

This car is a great. The V6 is very powerful. It shifts smoothly. The gas mileage is pretty good considering the engine (27 mpg on highway). I drive it a lot on long trips, and it is very comfortable to ride in. It has lots of leg room in the front seats and the back seat is not too bad considering it is a coupe. The trunk is quite large, and I'm able to throw golf clubs and a couple suitcases in there and still have room to spare. IF I ever replace this car, it would be with a newer accord V6.


Best Features

V6 Engine-its fast


Worst Features

Honda should have offered the manual transmission with the V6.

Review

At 56000 miles the transmission is slipping when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. The check engine light will come on with a code indicating the transmission has a fault. Seems to be a design problem that Honda admitted to in 2000-2002 but not 1998 and 1999. Don't buy one unless you get the transmission checked out. The cost for a new transmission id $4000!!! Ouch!!! I am trading mine in. Hopefully none of the readers will buy it!!! The Odessey with the V6 is having the same problem. I was at the dealer getting mine evaluate and someone was there with the same oriblem on her Odessey.


Best Features

Handling.


Worst Features

Fix transmission problem. Extend warranty to 1998 and 1999. Not worth losing your reliable reputation over this major problem.

Review

Good car, fun to drive, boring to look at, very reliable, but there is a mooing sound near the gas tank which has never been resolved. Every once in awhile, more often when it is hot, the car moos like it is relieving pressure. Very weird. Owned this car three years and have to sell for a minivan now. But won't consider the Odyssey because of the mooing.


Best Features

V6!!!! Haven't had any mechanical problems (aside from the mooing) in the three years we've owned it.


Worst Features

Liven it up a bit; offer more colors;
