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
Comfy drivers' seat, easy controls
Fix the transmission for customers with
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.
V6 Engine-its fast
Honda should have offered the manual
transmission with the V6.
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.
Fix transmission problem. Extend
warranty to 1998 and 1999. Not worth
losing your reliable reputation over
this major problem.
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.
V6!!!! Haven't had any mechanical
problems (aside from the mooing) in the
three years we've owned it.
I cant wait to get into my car everyday
and drive < i dont know if you could
ever feel to pure joy that i have when
i start my engine. My car out gos and
out prefoms every car that i have see
and been in even the top of the line
