2002 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Leather (2.3L 4cyl 4A)
I bought this Honda brand new when I turned age 61. I do maintenance on it according to the manual. It has 75,000 miles on it now. No problems whatsoever. It handles very good, gets 23 MPG in town and 30 MPG on highway. I have a bad back but the drivers seat is so comfortable since I can adjust it to fit the small of my back. I will buy another Honda when I need to trade.
power sunroof, leather seats, 6 disc CD, gas mileage, reliability
nothing needed to make me any happier with this car
I bought this car 2 years ago and it has been very reliable. Once I had a starter problem which I replaced myself. This car only have 38, thousand miles on it but already it seems like it's beginning to develop transmission problems. At first I started hearing a little whirring, almost imperceptible sounds. Now its like a siren. Its takes eternity to shift from 3rd to 4th gear. When its slowing to a stop, I feel the tranny slams into a first gear. The fuel econ is not so great, but then again I live on a hilly island of St Thomas usvi.
I love the car's exterior profile. The interior is durable and not one piece of panel is shaking. Bearing in mind that the roads here are very bad. The ac is very cool even in the summer
Improve on the automatic transmission. Also improve on the instrumentation, The lighting are just plain and boring. I have seen the instrument lighting and designs on Kias looking much better.
I bought this car 5 years ago with 48,000 miles on it from a friend who buys cars from the dealer only auctions.I did my research and saw the 02 EX V6 came with a lot of standard items that were options on the earlier years. I also saw that the earlier years had transmission problems. The V6 has plenty of power for this car.I have had no problems with this car. This is a GREAT CAR! I change the oil every 3,000 miles, the car just turned to 92,000 miles so I found a great deal on ebay for a COMPLETE timing belt kit. Local dealer cost 450.00 eBay 325.00 including shipping from a Honda dealership. That's the biggest expense I've had to put into the car.I Would definitely buy this car again. A+
I like loaded top of the line cars. I looked on eBay a few years ago and got the factory fog lights and sunroof deflector, woodgrain steering wheel and woodgrain radio bezel at WAY below cost. I also lowered the car by 1 inch replacing just the springs what a BIG difference that makes in handling.
Would have been nice with heated seats,It was offered on the Canada models in 02 but not till the 03 models in USA. The lumbar driver seat handle and lumbar mechanism is BAD.What a waste having it in the car! The road noise is a little too much, nothing turning up the radio cant take of. LOL
Bought this car when gas prices went sky high & needed to get out from under my SUV. Seemed like a solid investment, clean carfax, only 55k miles. Only had to do minor stuff to it for the first 20k (brakes, tires, etc). Then the CEL came on and I started to smell gas around 79k miles, took it to a mechanic & car leaking gas, quoted $900 on the low end/$1500 high to fix. No dealership would take it as a trade because they couldn't transport it. Paid to fix it & replaced both wheel bearings, drove it another 2k and the transmission failed. Quoted $2k on the low end/$3500 high, paid to fix it and the CEL came back on, needs new evap canister & TCS keeps kicking on. I'd never buy another Honda.
Nice looking, driving, comfortable car.
Everything. I've put almost $3500 into it in the last 6 months (gas tank, wheel bearings, transmission, etc) and still not done, it's causing me some serious insomnia. Wish I never sold my SUV. :(
Just purchased this honda accord v6 coupe. It was a decent price and looked like it was well taken care of. Love the power and the handling. With all the snow and ice in philly right now, the traction control system is awesome and much appreciated. My only concern when I bought it was that it has 269K miles on it already. I had 2 people look at it and they couldn't find anything wrong so I bought it. It drives like it's brand new. You would never guess it had that many miles on it. Time will tell how much life I can squeeze out of it.
Leather interior, 6 CD changer, TCS, smooth ride, strong engine
I really wanted heated seats but I know that was added on later models...also, the driver seat can't be pushed up the way the passenger side seat can so it's harder to get in on that side.
