My Accord, 4 dr EX has been a good
car for me. A few things have
happened that were negatives. The
transmission went out on Dec. 24,
2002 at 51,000. Fortunately, Honda
had just sent me a note saying that
they were extending the warranty
from 50,000 to 100,000 so the
transmission was replaced at no
cost to me. I was in a state of shock
because I have believed that Honda
was the best. Also, I do not like the
set up for drink holders and my wife
dislikes the deep glove compartment
she cannot see into. But, I would buy
another Honda--but it will be a stick
shift. I'm through with automatic
transmissions! I think I'll try a Civic.
I like the fold down rear seat. I also
like the little door in the arm rest of
the back seat that allows me to haul
a few pieces of lumber 8 or 10 feet
long. I like the visibility for the driver.
Let's get the transmission right.
Surely engineers have had enough
years to figure this out.
