2003 Honda Accord Sedan LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
this car dents too easily. an acorn
actually put a dent in the top of a
fender panel. i garage this car but
it's full of little creased dents
fuel consumption never gets above 28
mpg highway at 75-79 mph. i used to
get 30 mpg with a GM LS1 V-8 with
twice the horsepower. (average
detroit v-6 gets the same milage with
an auto-tranny - no detroit fan here.)
the interior controls like door locks
are poorly defined.
sound system is terrific. winter
handling, braking, high speed driving
and other fundemantals A+.
super handling and road manners.
fit stronger body panels. offer
greater displacement and lower highway
2003 Honda Accord Sedan EX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
This car is a good buy especially if
you want a sunroof, alloy wheels, etc.
They all come standard in comparison to
competing brands which have them as $$
options. I like the handling (not boaty
like the Camry), construction, interior
comfort, and overall driving
experience. My only complaint so far is
the mild wind noise from the driver's
window (my '93 Corolla did not have
that problem). I don't think you will
be unhappy with the car unless you pick
a defective one off the dealership lot.
Electroluminescent gauges, driving
position and seat comfort, cabin space,
ergonomics, standard features, pricing,
assembled in Japan.
Exterior and interior color
choices, illuminated steering wheel
controls, standard 8 way power driver's
seat for cloth EX, gated
shifter or tiptronic transmission
(available on foreign Accords),
standard curtain airbags
