Update after 3 years of owndership

2003 Honda Accord EX V-6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
I have now owned the vehicle for three years and continue to be impressed. It now has 78K miles and has yet to have any major problems. I drive a combination of city and highway and still get about 22 MPG. The only two issues I've had pertain to the stereo and ABS brake light. At around 40K miles, the stereo and A/C backlight went out. The local dealer said I'd need an entirely new stereo unit ($900+) and acted as though it was a common failure. After a polite email to Honda Corp, I got a new stereo for free. The other problem I continue to have is the ABS brake light. Occasionally, it will come on, unless I'm at the dealership.
My favorite feature is its overall reliability. It always starts and runs well. The ergonomics of the interior are also very nice. Everyone always comments on the instrumentation panel. I know it's only plastic, but it seems very high quality.
