Solid car, solid value
By Dan Anderson on
2002 Honda Accord DX 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
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.
Comfortable, very little noise at higher speeds, interior size.
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.
