Though I've had several problems in
the 2 yrs (30k miles) that I've
owned this car, including replacing
the tranny (30k mi), front rotors (34k
mi) side airbag sensor (35k mi), and
the alternator (50k mi) I still think
that its a steal for the price tag,
especially since Honda's hold there
value. Engine is powerful, handling
is good, interior looks great,
exterior looks attractive
and sporty. Overall, I think that
it's probably the best car in its
class, thou tranny is inadaquate for
engine. Even with its flaws my Accord
still runs extremely strong and the
build quality is very good.
Center console is very attactive and
solid looking. The front end of this
car looks very sporty. Powerful V6
(unfortuneately the tranny can't
handle it). Radio and climate
controls attractive and functional.
Alloy rims very attractive for stock.
Best bang for the buck.
Automatic Transmission for V6 is
inadaquate. No Manaul transmission
for this model. Leather cracks.
Cheap immitation leather trim on doors
and seat-backs (plastic clamps holding
them up break easily, they also
rattle). Better stock speakers.
