2004 Honda Accord EX V-6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
I bought this car largely because of perceived perceptions on Honda's reliability. Just after 36,000 miles, my radio console lost power. I took it back to the dealership and fortunately Honda payed full cost for the repair because other Hondas were had the same problem. At 91,629 miles my transmission failed without warning. I called Honda corporate to complain, and was given a case no. Took it to the dealership and Honda agreed to pay for half the cost to replace the transmission which was $1725. Honda provided a new 3 year/36000 mile warranty. I am very glad Honda helped with these problems, but these are not problems I would expect from a Honda.
Acceleration, handling, satellite radio, windows down with remote transmitter.
A transmission that lasts, Brakes, No way to turn on interior light above back seats from the driver seat, Easier way to replace front headlamps.
