Not as good as others
By Asian user on


1997 Honda Accord EX V6 4dr Sedan


got it from a private party with 85,000
miles on it. The trans is jerking in
the "slow & go" situation. Won't happen
when it's " Stop & go". That's why I
didn't find out at the test drive. I
have been a Toyota fan for more than 8
years, their trans just smooth like
silk. Been to shop (not dealer), they
told trans jerk on high mileage Accord
are very common. No solution unless
change a used one-$1,200. Also, many of
the repair cost are higher than Toyota.
it does have one advantage: it's timing
belt need to replace every 90,000
miles, not 60,000.

Best Features

Handling, quality on cooling system.

Worst Features

Gas mileage due to jerking trans (auto). I got 21mpg combine city & freeway.
