I have owned the car for 15 Months know and, so far OK. I really disappointed with the paint. The car is Silver in color and the paint is fading really bad on the roof, hood and trunk lid. If Honda knows this is a problem with paint they should fix the problem to keep there reputation. The transmission is starting to acting up, along with the brakes. The ABS doesn't seem to work and the front rotors are going to be replaced next week. I change my oil every 3500 miles and started noticing a low tapping with the car is started up in the morning. It also has a stick throttle when first started up, common problem with these cars. The car is really good on gas.
Interior layout, controls, and cup holders. Comfortable ride.
Fix known problems, not tap dance around by saying we think this is the problem. It seems that 98 Accord are really bad with transmissions, not good from a country that is known for is reliability.
