I have owned this car for nearly 5 years.
Bought with about 45,000miles, now it has about 110,000miles.
No Problems at all, changed front brakes once, still has original rear brakes.
Changed original battery when the car was 7 years old, changed spark plugs once.
Great fuel mileage, roomy, comfortable, handles very well.
Fantastic bang for the buck.
I own a big block trans am, so I know performance, and this 4 cylinder performs very well, more than enough power for day to day driving.
Paint is fading, but hey, its 9 years old...
Engine and ABS light are on, but oh well..
Best car I've ever owned,
and the way its going I'll probably have it for a long time to come.

I honestly have become disappointed with this car - I have owned this car for over 6 years and ever since I went over the 100K in miles (the past two years - currently at 121K) - This car has completely fallen apart.. I have never missed an oil change or maintenance - I have copies of ever invoice since bought at 21K miles. I just found out today I have to have the MOTOR replaced, this after replacing the Power Steering Pump, hoses, axle, arms, door locks, needs new battery every year and many moe items. Every six to seven months I am spending 600- 1K on work and now 3K to replace the motor.

Bought one year ago at 175,000 miles and have no problems and has gotten more and more fun to drive. This is my dream car. Keep up on maintenance and you will have a great car for a long time! Thanks Honda!

I have drove hondas before this is the worst.
I am spending more money on repairs than the value of the car. I think I am going to try a camary next.
I had issues with the front axles, airbags and the car was not in ANY accidents!! Even Honda couldnt understand it, which I think was a LIE!

I have owned this car since new.
And the paint/clear coat has deteriorated down to bare metal along much of the top surfaces of the car and is showing signs of surface rust.
I have taken this issue to Honda's Regional Manager and they are refusing to even pay for part of the repair, let alone all of it.
So now I have to decide if I want to spend $4500 (the cost of a new engine, or 10 timing belts) on a car that's worth over $10,500 (with good paint) or not.
This is my 6th Honda and may very well be my last, as I am not buying from a Manufacturer that skimps on their paint and clear coat.
This problem has been expressed by 100's and possibly 1000's of Honda owners around the world.

I had a 1990 Accord for several years, sold it with 280k miles, current owner works at a tire store near me so I know it still runs! After the Accord, I had a 1999 626 and two 2002 Nissan Maximas (one an automatic, one a 6 speed). After I found out my Dad was replacing his 2004 Accord EX V6 with a truck, I offered to buy it. Only 75k miles and meticulously maintained. As much as I miss the acceleration of my 6 speed Maxima, the Accord is no slouch, runs about as well as my automatic Maxima did but with better mileage. I'm averaging 21-22 in the city (and the Dallas area has no clue how to synchronize traffic lights) and a trip to Kentucky and back got me 30.4 mpg at 75-78 mph!
Honda takes a bold leap for 2005 with the introduction of the Hybrid Accord. Rather than add a hybrid motor to its four-cylinder, Honda bolts its third-generation IMA system to the Accord's already-potent V6. In one fell swoop the Accord hybrid has become the class leader in fuel economy (30 city, 38 highway) and power (255 horsepower). Other changes for the 2005 Honda Accord this year include new wheel cover designs for the LX and EX trims, a new coin pocket design, illuminated steering wheel controls and improved rear styling in sedans with redesigned taillamps. In addition, front-seat side airbags and full-length head curtain airbags are now available on all trim levels all the way down to the base DX model.
