2002 Honda Accord DX 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this car used with about 65K miles on it and it has been great to me so far. Now with 130+K miles it has not yet had any problems. Fuel economy is not as good as I expected (23-32mpg) but still very good compared to others. I have no regrets buying this car and would gladly buy another.


Best Features

with the 5 spd the performance and handling is great.

2002 Honda Accord DX 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Have an '89 Camry with 220,000+ miles that's cost me less than 3 Gs--including brakes and tires--to maintain over 11 years of consistent driving. A tough act to follow. When purchasing a newby I was looking for a dependable car with reasonable gas mileage, crankdown windows, and a manual tranny. Got it in the Honda Accord for less than 13K. I've put on 18,000+ miles in 8 months w/o incident. Suprisingly large inside and out. Rides quietly and smoothly (no shimmy or pull) at 80+ mph. Excellent no-frills value from someone who believes a car is for transportation only. Would absolutely buy only 2 types of cars in the future, Toyota or Honda.


Best Features

Comfortable, very little noise at higher speeds, interior size.


Worst Features

Small complaints: tilt steering offers little range, "Maintanence Required" light incessantly announcing I NOW have to go to the dealership to spend a couple C notes.

Review

Overall, this is a very good car. It's come with it's share of problems, though. #1-Bought the car spring time. I didn't use the AC for any extended period of time until mid summer. The first time I really got to use it, about an hour into the trip, i notice that my foot was wet, and that the AC drain hose was pinched in the AC box, and had totally flooded my car via the heater vents. The dealership fixed the drain problem, but did nothing about my rotting, falling apart carpet! #2-Trans was grinding in fifth gear at 300 miles, dealer told me to "let it break in". Went back next week, no more 5th gear, and almost no reverse. 2 1/2 weeks later, and a new trans.


Best Features

Very smootheeee ride, extremely quiet inside. Interior is very comfortable, and everything is where it should be!!!


Worst Features

Make a 4cyl with more HP and more Torque, take some lessons from Nissan. (2.5l, 180hp, 175ftlb, compared to 2.3l, 150 hp!!!)

Review

Very good family car! Excellent reliability. Good gas mileage. Smooth and quiet handling. Financing was almost perfect and can hardly beat the rate. If you plan on having 2 to 3 kids in your family, this will be the perfect fit. One of the safest four door car I've ever thought. If you think of selling it, this will be one of the highest resale value you can find with its class.


Best Features

Handling and Reliability!

Review

Test drove this car along with the American/German/Korean competition, there was no comparison. The Accord was a loud overpriced tin box. The exterior sheetmetal was'nt much thicker than a soda can with one piece flimsy plastic door handles and a cheap/chintzy interior. The car rode rough and had way too much road/wind noise. Save your 22 Gs and buy a Passat instead!


Best Features

smooth sounding engine, nice paint job


Worst Features

put some meat on this cars bones! Thicker sheetmetal, better switchgear, cut the sticker price in half.
