My family has owned many Hondas, all of which have been very low maintaining vehicles, except for a big problem in my '99 transmission. The car used to be my moms. She had to replace the tranny at just below 100,000. Very disappointing coming from Honda, one of the most reliable manufacturers out there and way above German and American made cars. Now at almost 170,000 miles and up to that I've been noticing the transmission problems again, and just today it went totally out of gear, and then back in after I jabbed the gas a few times about three seconds later. Not been a fun experience driving in fear with this car... possible my driving habits don't help it either.
It's looks, I have the factory body kit and the fog lights, and I love the engine, and for it being almost ten years old, it's a fairly impressive V6 for it's age. To add to the Review above... I'd definitely own another Honda, just not one from the years 98- 02 as many have had my same problems.
