1998 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan

Review

At 69k miles my accord automatic tranny had to be rebuilt. I've heard alot of incidents of accord auto transmissions needing rebuilding at 50k-90k miles (98-2002)... thats why honda extended the transmission warranty for 2000-2002 (i didnt get so lucky.. if you talk to them right.. they might extend 98's - 99's). If you get this car.. you might want to *possibly* look into getting a tranny cooler as well. This applies to both i4's and v6's. Overall its a good car with a reliable motor :)
