1998 Honda Accord EX V6 2dr Coupe

Review

I was excited to purchase what I thought would be a reliable and great looking car, which also possessed an awesome Vtec engine. However, I was sadly mistaken. Gas meter broke around 10,000 miles and was fixed under warranty. Later engine was rewired free of charge due to potential fire hazards, according to the Dealership. Later I received a written notification that the engine switch had to be replaced due to complaints of stalling. Around 75,000 miles, the alternator had to be replaced along with the timing belt; air conditior also broke (friend has same problem). Finally, the transmission is almost completely broken.

Favorite Features

Exterior and interior design. Built quality is terrible.

Suggested Improvements

Honda should do the following: Fix the transmission, make sure that new- model cars are not quickly released (that is, make sure the cars are reliable).
