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.
