Vehicle1999 Honda Accord EX V6 4dr Sedan
ReviewI bought my EXV6 new, and needed to replace the transmission at 42,000 miles after doing all maintenance recommended by the owners manual and more. Honda ate 75% of the $5700 cost after one month of bugging them. Honda extended the tranny warranty on 00-01 models, but neglected to do so with the 98-99 with the same transmission. Requests to Honda to explain any differences between 98-99 and 00-01 transmissions have gone unanswered. EGR valve replaced at 60,000 miles under extended warranty. Stereo replaced at 52,000 miles because of constant CD skipping. Ignition harnesses were recalled on many of these cars - be careful!
Best FeaturesSleeper car. Great acceleration. Good cargo space. Relatively mechanically sound other than transmission, exhaust, and electrical problems.
Worst FeaturesSleeper styling could use some help. Suspension is mushy, car dosen't corner very well. OEM tires (Michelin MXV4+) are nearly gripless - I recommend replacing with Dunlop SP Sport A2 for about half the cost.
