2003 Honda Accord Sedan LX V-6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I've had my 2003 Accord nearly 7 years and it is by far the best family car I've ever owned (I've had many). I have *never* had a problem with it -- just regular maintenance. The design is a good balance of power, fuel economy, comfort. A little boring to drive compared to my sports coupe, but that's because it's a family sedan, no fault of its own

2003 Honda Accord Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I bought this being 5y.o. at 75K mi.I own it for 2 years now with 100Kmi. Only very minor problems. Recently the light inside won't come on when doors open. Seems to be loose wire contact. Very pleasant to drive. I'm glad I didn't read this review before I bought it. I live in Las Vegas, so perhaps the car lasts longer in the mild climate.


Best Features

Black fancy interior design, much better than most 2009 makes/models; fun to drive;


Worst Features

none

2003 Honda Accord Sedan EX V-6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I'm writing this review because Edmunds.com was such a valuable source of research when I was car shopping, and I wanted to return the favor. We recently bought a used 2003 Honda Accord EX v6 with 72,000 miles. Immediately I was struck with the aggressive acceleration of the Accord - this car is fast! I had driven Hondas in the past and always loved how tight they feel, both on road handling and interior components. Everything feels well considered and integrated. I bought this car primarily for my wife for her daily use. I drive it on long road trips (just logged 1,000 miles on the last one), and feel it is perfectly suited for our needs, reliable, safe (for when we have kids) and fun!


Best Features

Powerful engine, tight handling, very roomy (I'm 6'3" and there's plenty of space, both in the driver's seat and back seats), good storage, super reliable and safe (curtain airbags), and we love the seat heaters on cold days!


Worst Features

It would be nice to have a built-in auxiliary jack for the stereo, but this model pre-dated the iPod. The stereo is also a bit pedestrian, but it's fine for most people's use.

2003 Honda Accord Sedan EX 4dr Sedan w/Leather and Navigation (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Review

No problems in 75000 miles. Incredibly dependable and fuel efficient. I replaced the brakes at 70000 miles but had no other issues. We drove from Atlanta to Jacksonville, Florida several times and averaged 30 MPG at 70 MPH. I'm only selling it because we bought an RV and a Chevy Van to pull it and no longer need the Honda. We'll be sorry to see it go.


Best Features

Navigation system. I recently updated the DVD. Without the Nav I would have been lost several times after moving from Minnesota to Florida.


Worst Features

The ride could be a bit smoother but I'm not dissatisfied with it. I love the car.

Review

Since we bought this car the transmission has gone out twice, the radio/cd went out and the A/C went out. Our transmission was replaced at 55,000 miles and now at 120,000 miles it's out again! Honda says they know this is an issue, but are not willing to help. We are looking at another $3500!!!
