1998 Honda Accord EX V6 2dr Coupe


Bought this somewhat used, owned by a Honda mechanic. Read on MSNAutos that these had transmission problems, two coworkers with the same drivetrain had replaced trans as early as 65,000. Mine waited until 105K, then started slipping; trans shop in Torrance says they see these frequently, known problem. Not my first Accord, happy but for the trans, known point of failure on these. Honda should step up to the plate; Nissan fixed the fuel injection on my 10yr old Z, after admitting that it was a known problem.

Best Features

Performance, styling, decent handling.

Worst Features

Bad trans design on V6 lasted for 5 years, poor reflection on Honda, gas mileage could be a little better.
