2005 Honda Accord EX V-6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


6-speed transmission sometimes "popped" out of third gear the moment it was engaged or was just difficult to engage. Problem began on day of purchase. First two dealers unable to duplicate problem, so American Honda customer service unhelpful. Third dealer service department was eventually able to duplicate and pursue the problem. Shifter cables and then transmission replaced under warranty. Unexpected noises from rear end corrected with replacement of suspension linkage, exhaust componenets and strut. Total of eight warranty service visits and sixty days in the shop before 5,000 miles were on the odo. Honda service departments vary in quality. Find one that gives fixes, not excuses.

Best Features

Body style. Stereo. Smooth powerful engine. Handling. Climate control system. Roomy trunk for a coupe. 21 mpg around town and 29 mpg highway. Carbon- fiber style interior trim. Storage space.

Worst Features

Prominent console interferes with elbow movement during shifting. Larger outside mirrors with auto tilt-down in reverse to compensate for reduced rearward view from coupe body style. Make sunroof optional for increased headroom. Where the heck do/did I put my cell phone?
