As Good As They Say!

2002 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
This is my 3rd Honda (2nd Accord). I haven't had any major problems with this car at all. The drivetrain has been perfect. Only routine maintenance and at 72,000 miles, she still runs like a champ. Oddly enough, the fuel mileage has gotten better with age. The I-4 motor has plenty of power. The ride is still smooth. I can see keeping this car for another 100,000 miles before I even consider selling it for another Honda.
Comfortable seats. Easy to use and reach controls. Clean dash display. Surprisingly large trunk. Nice to be able to drive 500+ miles on the highway without stopping!
I haven't been in a newer Accord, so some things may have been improved. The cup holder is awkward in this model. It's pretty cramped if you and a passenger both have drinks.
