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

Review

Honda has dropped the ball with regards to build quality on the 2003 Accord Coupe. By all measures, the car should be a joy to drive, but unfortunately it suffers from 1st year engineering and quality failures. Starting at about 5000 miles, squeaks and rattles crept in to destroying any perception of Honda quality. The radio head unit went out and had to be replaced. The ABS quit working and sensors had to be replaced. A surging idle issue rendered the car nearly undriveable. All of this was before it had 30,000 miles on the clock. I bought this car with the hope of keeping it for many years, but I'm sad to say that I'm fed up. Beware of the 2003 Accord Coupe.

Favorite Features

Excellent ergonomics, very good gas mileage, comfortable for the highway.

Suggested Improvements

Focus on build quality. Eliminate squeaks and rattles. Get back to what made Honda Honda.
