Bought my Accord EX-V6 back in May of 2000, and still have it. Has about 60K miles. Overall great, reliable car. Would recommend it to anyone. I agree the styling is a little bland, however, I prefer something not too flashy. To date, aside from tire rotations and oil changes, I have done a few things to it to keep it up and running. I too had the EGR value issue fixed by a local shop, and was promptly reimbursed via Honda after writing a short letter. (Great service). Replaced the tires, new alternator, trans fluid changes, and 2 brake jobs. With the transmission warranty extension to 7 yrs/100K miles, I'll keep it for another year or so. Overall great car, would recommend it.
V6 passing power on the highway, quiet, smooth ride. Clean, interior styling. Lots of room in the trunck for my golfclubs.
Had 2 brake jobs already at 60K miles, thus, an upgrade might help here.
