Well, now what a surprise the ole-girl has 150k on her and looks and drives like new. Do what the maintenace schedule says use only Honda parts! This car has been a delight to me and my wife now for eight years! No mechanical failures only one slightly costly driver side door mechanism hickup. A little pin broke and locked the door permanently. It was real interesting taking the door panel off and cutting the locking mechanism out with a dremel. Total fluke nobodies fault. 32 gpm highway which is most of our driving. Pushes snow with quality snow tires. Love stick shift, changed out the cloth for leather heated for $1400, would do it again. Going to drive her till she dies!
Newly added custom leather seats, spend a few dollars and get the K&M air filter huge difference, also added the Tornado seems to help on in-town fuel mpg. Controls easy to read at night, body style very sharp. Wife feels very safe in foul weather. We will own a new Honda after this one dies!
LX seats in 99 were a little stiff for me, now I customed the interior at 140k and had them add just a little more cushion. Paint mine is white and for some reason it doesn't seem to have enough mil-thickness. Chips easy on the hood, keep it waxed it pays. A lot of places to catch salt wash often
It's been a great car to have, it rides
smooth and feels very well built. It's
a great car for the younger crown like
myself, there are tons of ways to
customize the car any way you want. I
threw on a set of 17 inch wheels with
low profile tires and it makes it look
even more aggressive. overall it's
been a great car to own, easy
maintenance, nice quality, and great
style makes this car a winner.
I love the styling. i also like the
maintenance reminder, it tells me when
i need to change my oil.
For anyone looking for a sporty,
stylish, comfortable, affordable,
reliable car, this is the one for you.
It's got it all. After driving the 4-
dr. Accords I came upon the coupe and
was hooked. This car is in immaculate
shape, the engine purrs like a kitten,
and has been a joy to drive. Hugs the
road, feels like it's got some weight
behind it without feeling sluggish. My
friends and family keep going back to
Honda and now I understand why.
Love the sunroof, everything is easily
reached (even while driving.) Stereo/CD
sound is awesome for a 'factory'
system. Overall body style is probably
my favorite. This car really looks

This is a great vehicle. I feel in love with the
LX but could only afford the Ex version. I
have not been disappointed.
I have had no problems other than:
-a seatbelt attachment replacement
- a brake sensor needing adjustment
- door locks going out
Most of these things were covered by
warranty. Although I do not have the V6, I
still like how this car performs, rides, and
looks. After four years, I am still very happy
with it and plan to hold onto it for quite a
while. It's nice to know that Honda's really
hold their value in case I do decide to trade

often very conservative, but this design is

seat is pretty small)
-nice size trunk and storage areas in front

I loved the look of this car when it
first appeared back in 1998. I finally
bought a pre-owned Accord, a 1999
model, this last year in 2001. I've
gotta say, the car looks great in and
out (I get compliments often from
friends), BUT I've never owned a car
with so many rattles. The dash, glove
box, and back shelf rattle to no end--
I've attempted the dealer repair route
and got nowhere.
THEN, the car began stalling: this is
an automatic. After FOUR trips to an
independent repair shop, they were able
to narrow down the cause.
It was a lease-return with low miles,
so I was not expecting to encounter
Easy-on-the-eye styling. Warm,
inviting interior: no odd-ball
weirdness for the sake of styling.
Smooth, quiet engine. Nice placement
of switches and knobs.
Improve endurance; Road noise;
everything else is great.
