1999 Honda Accord Sedan LX 4dr Sedan


Review

I am a college student and up to this
point the car has worked great for me.
But transmission just started acting up
and I am having it rebuilt right now,
which will leave me practically
destitute. Never expected this from a
Honda, which is why I saved up to buy
it in the first place. What a mistake!
Honda America does not even respond to
my letters or return my calls for
assistance. Don't know why only '00-'01
models get extended powertrain warranty
when it is the same transmission in '98-
'99 models. Apparently I'll never know
anyway since they won't even
acknowledge me. This will certainly be
my last Honda.


Best Features

Very comfortable, nice ride, nice factory stereo, also fairly zippy with 4 cyl. V-tech


Worst Features

Transmission is very clunky and dangerous when it starts acting up, better customer service through Honda America

1999 Honda Accord Sedan LX 4dr Sedan


Review

Transmission on this car is defective
(same transmission used in 98-01
models). Apparently Honda doesn't care
about 98-99 owners b/c the extended
warranty on their junk transmissions
only covers 00-01 models. People should
know they are not standing by their
product and causing far too many owners
a great deal of hardship by forcing
them to replace the faulty
transmissions at their own expense. Do
not buy this car thinking you are
getting "legendary" Honda quality. That
is BS. I guess I should at least thank
them for converting me into a Toyota
customer (even Chevy Cavalier is
looking good compared to this thing).


Best Features

Comfortable seats, ok handling when transmission is not endangering your life


Worst Features

How about standing buy your junk products and doing the responsible thing by extending the warranty to all owners of your flawed transmissions. I hope you people who are constantly raving about Honda realize that they are intentionally dodging a critical design flaw. "Legendary" my a#$

1999 Honda Accord Sedan EX V6 4dr Sedan


Review

A previous Accord owner, I am highly
disappointed by this car. The interior
is thoughtfully laid out and very nice.
The styling is alright. The performance
does not meet my expectations at all. I
expected better than 20 mpg (my
previous 4-cyl Accord averaged 31). The
transmission is terrible! Previous
owner had it replaced, but still
doesn't shift well at all. This is my
first Honda automatic, and my last for
sure. I'll either go with a manual 4-
cyl or look at a different brand.


Best Features

Legendary Honda reliability (even on the clunky tranny), powerful engine, steering wheel radio controls, dual action moonroof.


Worst Features

better transmission, memory power seats, better tilt steering mechanism and telescoping steering wheel, higher quality radio, dash lights are burning out. If Honda wants to make a luxury- style car, they should go all the way.

Review

This care has been zero maintenance
(except for routine maintenance which I
have performed according to schedule.)
It has certainly turned me into a Honda
owner.


Best Features

Good highway handling and comfort. V-Tec engine has plenty of power for long road trips.

Review

We purchased this vehicle when it was 2
years old, with 30,000 miles on it.
Right now, we have 60+k miles on it and
not a single problem with it. I begin
to wonder if the extended warranty
(7yr/100kmiles) was a waste of money?
We had German cars but this one is by
far more luxurious for the price. Also
I feel safer driving Honda than VW or
BMW.


Best Features

Everything inside, Engine


Worst Features

Gas Mileage (around 20 mpg in city), Jerkey transmission, especially around 55 mph uphill (dealer said it is some kind of torque thing that is normal for honda?!), it is not handling well in snowy conditions.
