1998 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan

Review

I have always been a Honda lover. However, with only 2 more car payments to go, the transmission began to slip severely, with only 70,000 miles. The problem only occurred when starting the car cold. After the engine warmed up, the transmission ran like a new car. The car is currently at the dealership, and they rebuilt the transmission which did not correct the problem. The 2000+ Accords had a cold- start transmission problem, and Honda offered extended transmission warranties, but this does not apply to my 98. I am very surprised and disappointed. I plan to get rid of the car as soon as the Honda dealership can figure out how to fix it!

Best Features

The sleek appearance, the sunroof and the fabulous stereo,

Worst Features

Suggest that the side doors be designed to better withstand "door dings". The side doors dent so easily, just like an aluminum soda can.
