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

Review

I had been a raving Honda fan since the early 90's. I finally gave up and sold my 42,000 mile, 03 Accord after a bad a/c compressor, sunroof relay, wiper motor, and drivers door lock motor. Of course, AHMC had no interest in a goodwill claim on any of it. I'm just now reading reviews by other owners who are citing the same issues over and over. Also looks like I got out just in time to avoid the failure of a poorly engineered automatic transmission. Since the late 90s larger vehicles with more powerful engines, and attempts to make them shift without jerking have stressed Honda's unique design of an automatic. Please, DO YOUR RESEARCH before you buy.

Favorite Features

Pulled 34 MPG on a 816 mile trip @ speeds near 80 mpg.

Suggested Improvements

Better automatic transmission. Most Honda/Acura auto's have severe transmission complaints in reviews. These transmissions cannot be truely fixed to last. They are simply rebuilt with feeble band-aids on the original design. They will continue to fail again and again.
