I passed up a high-end European car in 2001 on rumours of electrical problems. I'm at 65,000 miles and 2 accidents (not my fault) and the Accord is faultless. I haven't had even one issue, one rattle - nothing. (The dealer gets kudos for the quick faultless repairs after the accidents.) The TCS has proven helpful in ice, although better tires have proven a better solution in that area. Back seat fits a newborn carseat very well and the easy entry makes it easy for Dad to climb out after installing the carseat. After 5 years - I'm really digging for an excuse to get the 2005. But I can't come up with one. My car runs as well as the day I bought it. Go to Koons!
Reliable, reliable, reliable. Interior is comfortable, tight and well proportioned. Buttons make sense.
Change falls out of center console when the top is lifted. Center air vents could point a bit higher - I have to turn them to one side to get the air out of my eyes on a hot day.
