2005 Honda Accord LX Special Edition PZEV 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I purchased this late in 05 when the 06 models came out. Overall, its a decent car. after 2 years of ownership, I have discovered many issues with the car. Squeaks, rust spots, loose panels, cheaply put together parts, crappy brakes, mysterious noises, rattles etc. the tires are the worst. tranny is a bit wacky. All together, the car is running. It has a fairly reliable powertrain. Other than that, the Honda Accord isn't what it's cracked up to be anymore.
It runs! Gets me where I need to go. Stereo is decent for the price.
Stop being cheap. Put the car together better. Steptronic tranny would be nice. A better tranny would be nice. Brakes shouldn't shudder and overheat as easily as they do. Plastic clips shouldn't be holding a cars bumper together. They break easily. Too easily.
