I took delivery of my Black Currant beauty in the Spring of 1999. It didn't take long to fall in love. The double wishbone suspension, coupled with a high-revving in-line four (which felt like it was hand-built by Swiss watchmakers), light weight and a responsive steering linkage made this car a ball to drive. The fact that it was reliable, durable, possessed an excellent degree of utility and didn't require a fortune to operate and maintain were just bonuses. Faced with its inevitable demise all these years later, it feels like losing a friend. True, the low-end torque wasn't the best and a parasitic amp draw was never properly diagnosed, but I am distraught at having to say goodbye to this car. It's style, the brilliantly laid out dash and the aforementioned high-revving four and excellent suspension turned long drives into sprints. I'm 6'3" and could sit straight up in the back seat. Such was the thoughtful engineering and design invested into this car by Honda. In its own quiet and sublime way, I feel it was one of the best cars ever built.
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
