1999 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan


Review

Transmission on this car is defective
(same transmission used in 98-01
models). Apparently Honda doesn't care
about 98-99 owners b/c the extended
warranty on their junk transmissions
only covers 00-01 models. People should
know they are not standing by their
product and causing far too many owners
a great deal of hardship by forcing
them to replace the faulty
transmissions at their own expense. Do
not buy this car thinking you are
getting "legendary" Honda quality. That
is BS. I guess I should at least thank
them for converting me into a Toyota
customer (even Chevy Cavalier is
looking good compared to this thing).


Best Features

Comfortable seats, ok handling when transmission is not endangering your life


Worst Features

How about standing buy your junk products and doing the responsible thing by extending the warranty to all owners of your flawed transmissions. I hope you people who are constantly raving about Honda realize that they are intentionally dodging a critical design flaw. "Legendary" my a#$

1999 Honda Accord EX V6 4dr Sedan


Review

A previous Accord owner, I am highly
disappointed by this car. The interior
is thoughtfully laid out and very nice.
The styling is alright. The performance
does not meet my expectations at all. I
expected better than 20 mpg (my
previous 4-cyl Accord averaged 31). The
transmission is terrible! Previous
owner had it replaced, but still
doesn't shift well at all. This is my
first Honda automatic, and my last for
sure. I'll either go with a manual 4-
cyl or look at a different brand.


Best Features

Legendary Honda reliability (even on the clunky tranny), powerful engine, steering wheel radio controls, dual action moonroof.


Worst Features

better transmission, memory power seats, better tilt steering mechanism and telescoping steering wheel, higher quality radio, dash lights are burning out. If Honda wants to make a luxury- style car, they should go all the way.

Review

I absolutely love this car. Only problem
is that I have been experiencing
transmission problems since about 2.5
years ago, but it was just minor (or so
I thought) rough shifting. I took it in
and was told that everything looked ok.
Just this past weekend the transmission
failed on me at 91K. After doing
research I found out that this is a
known issue and a recall has been issued
for the 2000-2001 models.

I am trying to get the dealership to
take care of it. Wish me luck.


Best Features

Agressive body styling. Driver controls on steering wheel


Worst Features

Tranny!!!!

Review

This care has been zero maintenance
(except for routine maintenance which I
have performed according to schedule.)
It has certainly turned me into a Honda
owner.


Best Features

Good highway handling and comfort. V-Tec engine has plenty of power for long road trips.
