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

Review

I bought my Accord new because they are supposed to be low maintenance cars that run forever. After warranty expiration, I learned that "forever" is slang for until your warranty expires. Even though my car is six years old, it only has 40,000 miles on it and I'm replacing the transmission. I've learned that this is a very common problem among hondas. It does have a flimsy front cup holder that won't stay latched and has a lot of road noise when driving at high speeds. With only four cylinders, it's a little gutless when getting onto the freeway. All these things could be overlooked if I could just get the transmission to let drive it.

Favorite Features

Gas mileage. I like simple cars with few features. They're cheaper to maintain and use less energy. Up until now, I've only had to take it in for routine oil and fluid changes.

Suggested Improvements

Offer extended warranties on transmissions for the models built int he early 2000s. Consumer reports make it evident that they fail.
