2002 Honda Accord Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I have the familiar problem of having a bad transmission. Don't believe the others on this website that say changing your transmission will help avoid this problem. Whoever says this works for Honda. I say this because that is actually what I did (regular transmission changes) and it did not help, I now need a transmission repair at 90,000 miles. Honda won't help. I will trade it in for another car. I will also trade in my Honda CRV because of the frustration with this issue.

2002 Honda Accord Sedan Value Package 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


Review

First Honda I have ever owned and it won't be the last! This car is virtually maintenance free - mjust add gas and change the oil every 3000 miles. When I bought the car I changed the timing belt and water pump but that is all the service in the 18 months I have had it.


Favorite Features

Great radio and speakers


Suggested Improvements

Styling is kinda plain but it's growing on me

Review

Bought this car in 2005 and it's been wonderful. Had regular maintenance and replaced battery and brake pads... and tires but no major problems! It gets wonderful gas mileage!!! It now has over 90,000 miles and still running great.

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


Review

I drove this car off the showroom floor in 2002. I can't say enough great things about it. For 2002, this car was loaded and came with 6 disc changer, moonroof, rear spoiler, and leather seats. I drive this car all around VA and get about 33-35 MPG on highway. I can usually get about 450- 500 miles on a single tank. It's unfortunate the newer Accords don't get the mileage this one has, however I guess with the increase in size, you compromise MPG.

Review

I will never buy another Honda product. I have had to have the transmission rebuilt twice in this vehicle. Once at 77,00 miles, and again at 103,00. American Honda offered no assistance when I contacted them. Search the internet and you'll find numerous complains about problems with failed transmission on this model. I'm going back to Toyota for my next car purchase.
