I purchased this car new in February 2000. The problems I have had: an electrical relay went out so the engine cooling fans stayed on, had to replace alternator, water pump and oil pump. This Accord has been super reliable, fun to drive and wonderful to look at! I am about to buy a new Honda but I will not sell this one. It is my favorite of all 6 Honda cars that I have owned. I have around 200,000 miles on this car and still do not worry about getting to where I am going. This was a great purchase. Love this car!
Fun to drive and very reliable.
Gas mileage is not bad for a V6.
It is a beautiful car.
I bought my 2000 Honda Accord Coupe from an auction dealer. Within a couple of months, the transmission become faulty. I figured I'd still use my car till the transmission gave in. I even took him to the Honda service center near my home and they immediately diagnosed the transmission giving it 6 months worth of use. Here I am, over a year after Honda diagnosed the death of my Accord and he's still running. No check engine light or anything related. I do take care of him and don't abuse it by sticking the pedal to the floor, though in Georgia it is known to go way higher than the speed limit. Can't say enough great things about my baby Accord. Still very dependable being a 14 yr old car.
I bought this car new in Sept of 2001 during the honda clearance event.
When I first got it, I used to have probs with the EGR valve every 40K or so.
But then they finally recalled and the problem was fixed.
I think I've been through 3 alternators.
No engine/tranny work.
Replaced brakes a lot because I'm a rough driver.
I drive @ 120 miles daily rt to work.
I'm in Georgia so I can't really say how it handles cold weather, but it's been a champ in the extreme heat.
About three years ago, I had freon added to the AC because it wasn't getting as cold as it should.
It's great now.
Essentially, this car is extremely reliable and still has good get up and go.
Everyone who gets in it never suspects the high mileage (268K) and is always impressed that it still drives like a new car.
I will say that I have to give it some idle time
before I start driving it now. The engine used to be good to go immediately after I started it.
But I live in the country and the speed limit starts at 55 mph.
Then I get on HWY @ 80 mph, so not much city driving.
Maybe 2 city miles @ 35-45 5 days a week.
I'm convinced this car may last forever.
My mechanic says that if anything, I may need to replace the tranny at some point, but the engine should last forever.
I LOVE this car.
I'm still amazed it has been so dependable.
I bought my Accord new in 2000. It currently has 227,000 miles on it and still runs great. The car has always had the scheduled maintenance done by the dealer and I have only had to replace the alternator (2007) and the starter (2009). The gas mileage isn't fabulous but the quality, durability and reliability far exceeds my expectation for any car.
All cars should have names. My Accord is affectionately known as Mean Joe Green. I'm at 216,000 miles, having purchased it at 65,400. I've replaced the belts twice, two motor mounts, bought two sets of tires, two water pumps, and two sets of brake pads. Aside from those issues, most of my indicator lights in the dash have gone out. But I still get at least 28 mpg on the highway. Handles best with Goodyear Assurance Tripletreads. That was my first replacement set of tires, and it went about 65k. Perfect for twisty Mississippi back roads that I used to commute on, 164 miles round trip daily. Leather driver's seat is torn up. Replaced the seat frame. Best car I've owned ever.
