1998 Honda Accord LX V6 4dr Sedan


Review

At 62,000 miles the transmission gave
out, cost $1,300 to replace with
another vtec, which after 15,000 gave
out again. It has no take off speed
and is dangerous to drive with an
unreliable transmission. It
neutralized in the middle of the high-
way. Gas mileage sucks, wont buy
anther one.


Best Features

Comfy drivers' seat, easy controls


Worst Features

Fix the transmission for customers with this problem

Review

As my Accord will hit 120K miles soon,
I have to admit it is better than all
the American cars in this class that
are 2004 models. It is agile,
reliable, has good grip, and
acclerates very well with the 5 speed
manual. Fuel economy is excellent. The
interior design and layout is
flawless, though the exterior is a
little boring.


Best Features

Grip in bad weather, interior, MPG, reliablity,security, and easy maintanence.


Worst Features

More interesting design and alloy wheels. (fixed on 03'-04'model)

Review

3 months after purchase, the Alternator
dies and takes the battery with it,
acceptable. 2 months later, the
transmission dies and we pay $3000 for
a rebuilt, which was received about 3
months after going into the shop. Then,
not too long after that, we notice the
car shifting hard in the mornings,
guess what? seals on the torque
converter are hosed, another $800 for 3
ea. $1.50 seals. and then at about 95K,
the catalytic converter fails, so, we
replace that, and the o2 sensor stuck
in it. and now, at 106K, the drivers
side CV joint is popping when I turn
right. I will never again buy a honda.


Best Features

The engine still runs...


Worst Features

transmission, obviously, cv joints, alternator, everything I had a problem with.
