2003 Honda Accord EX V-6 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
I've owned this car since December of 02, and have enjoyed every mile I've driven it. Honda recalled it to fix a potential transmission problem at 30,000 miles. I put new tires on it at 70,000 miles, which made it a much better car. The only other repair has been new front brakes at 80,000 miles. The car looks new, feels new, and with the new tires, rides and handles better and quieter than new. I can't find any reason to buy a new one, and plan to put another 90,000 miles on it.
The engine and transmission are great, and the navigation system is wonderful, and 33 mpg on the highway is very acceptable. With the new tires, the ride and handling is much improved.
It would be nice if they used the same gear shift as the Acura because you can't just downshift to fourth gear, but going down a mountain it will downshift if you put the brakes on.
