2003 Honda Accord Coupe EX V-6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

The V6 has plenty of power and is fun to drive. There is problem with the transmission slipping that the dealers don't seem to be able to figure out. I have had the exterior window trim replaced 4 times since new and it needs to be done again. There are lot of interior squeaks that seem to be getting worse. The quality in finish work seems to be lacking. The metal and paint is very thin and chips/dings easy.


Favorite Features

Heated seats, fun to drive and plenty of power.


Suggested Improvements

Heated outside mirrors. Better paint. Fix outside window trim. Backseat is almost impossible to access. Better sound system, speakers need more bass.

2003 Honda Accord Coupe EX V-6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I purchased the car used new with 60k miles. I love to drive it, its very fast, reliable, comfortable and stylish. Its a great value for the money. The only draw back is the CD unit after only 6 months of having the car @ 68k miles the CD player and circuit board went out. The Honda dealer replaced the circuit board for free, and i had to pay an outrageous $600 dollars for the CD player to be repaired.

2003 Honda Accord Coupe LX V-6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I love this car. It is has great power, is very smooth, fun yet comfortable ride, handles well, and gets great MPG for a 240HP vehicle. I have 123,000 miles on the car. The car is very reliable. When the car was new, it had a couple of issues that were fixed under warranty. But overall, this car is bullet proof. The car seemed to get better as it aged. (You would expect that that after the warranty expires and the car got older more things would go wrong, but just the opposite was true. After the warranty expired, the car did not have any issues) This car is almost maintenance free.


Favorite Features

Powerful smooth engine, good results on crash tests, great MPG and does not require high octane fuel, interior (Honda put so much thought into every little detail that it makes ownership a pleasure), comfort (great driver's seat), feel of the steering wheel, stereo, reliability.


Suggested Improvements

This car is very safe, but does not have head air bags. However, it does have side air bags.

2003 Honda Accord Coupe EX 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I owned multiple Hondas, then after a brief (and painfully expensive) experience with a VW, I came back to Honda again with the 2003 Accord Coupe. I haven't been disappointed. 98k miles later and only routine maintenance. Still have original rear brakes/rotors. Front brakes and tires changed at 70k. Headlamps burned out at 60k, but they only cost about $30 each to replace so no big deal. Dash panel went out after warranty expiration (I saw others mention the same thing), but it was replaced free of charge without issues. While it may seem that everyone and their brother has one of these, it's hard to argue with top-notch quality, along with performance, reliability, and good looks.


Favorite Features

Car still looks brand new after 5 1/2 years and 98k miles. Lots of standard features.


Suggested Improvements

Heated mirrors.

2003 Honda Accord Coupe EX V-6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I have had many problems with my Accord. Transmission slips without notice, electrical problems, a/c only blows 1 temp. The car seems to have a mind of its own so I wouldn't recommend the 2003 model since this is the 1st year of the new style. Check out the recalls on the 2003's, there are many! Always trouble. Get the 2005.


Favorite Features

Comfortable seats, navi.


Suggested Improvements

Fix the transmission & electrical issues
