Good but not great
By hondolay on


1998 Honda Accord EX V6 4dr Sedan


I've had 3 recalls and six additional
items go wrong with this car in five
years/50,000 miles - since it was new -
a record for any car I've owned in the
last 35 years. Service never could get
the sunroof to quit rattling (not one
of the items I refer to above). I'm
tired of camping out at the Dealers.
The seats are too hard and my butt
hurts after a couple of hours of
driving - sometimes after 1/2 hour.
Insurance it surprisingly pricey for
this car. Rock solid engine. Rock
solid suspension. Decent handling but
it's no sportscar - see S2000. Good
fuel economy. Why do headlights need
to fail after five years?

Best Features

Handling, most ergonomics (switches etc), acceleration and fuel economy.

Worst Features

Improve seat design big time, improve quality of components, better leather, get rid of rattles from sunroof. Cut down on recalls - improve quality!
