1999 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan


Review

I've had my Accord since the fall of 1999 and it has performed admirably over the years. 178000 miles and only a starter and alternator for replacements with regular tuneups. Still gets 30 MPG and the ride quality is great for a car of its time period. Really could use ABS living in Minnesota winters, but you can do without if you're a confident driver.


Best Features

The styling of this car has made it stand the test of time.

1999 Honda Accord EX V6 2dr Coupe


Review

Bought this thing with around 45K miles on it in 2004 and drove it until some kid parked his Blazer in my trunk last week at 127K miles. Great car. Not the most fun car I've ever driven, but still not bad. No issues other than the cheap factory GM alternator had to be replaced at around 50K miles which I was expecting. No tranny issues. Driver's side leather seat started looking rough but not bad considering it was a 10 year old car. All in all no complaints other than the alternator and maybe a tighter, sportier suspension. Super reliable, what you can expect from a Honda.


Best Features

Seats are pretty comfortable. Plenty of leg room for me (6'2"). The 3.0 VTEC has plenty of juice without sacrificing gas mileage (got about 28 mpg on hwy). Reliable, probably could have gotten 200K miles out of it if it weren't for that stupid kid.

Review

I bought this car used with 15000 miles on it (basically new) - I have to say this was the best car purchase I made to this point - possibly because I had owned some lemons previously. Low maintenance, great highway performance. The V-tech engine is such a great feature - until the v-tech engine started having problems - and only a dealership could fix them. Started having tranny problems after the 8th year. I had it rebuilt and still had problems. Honda wanted between $3 & 4K to fix it - at the time it was only worth that much. Friend of mine is having tranny probs on her 2003 Accord so I am a little leery of them now. Am trading it for a Mazda 3 - we'll see how that goes.


Best Features

The V-tech engine - allows you to drive low speeds in town and high speeds on highway with no shifting problems. Great interior - quality fabrics - fabric overhead never sagged.


Worst Features

Transmission failure at 7 & 8 years is a little soon for a car with such a strong reliability reputation and pricing.

1999 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan


Review

My 1999 accord quality and reliability is so bad that I am convinced Honda is misleading the customers on their claim on reliability. Through this review, I would like to point out a flaw, either in the design or the manufacturing process, of the 1999 model year Honda Accord engine. The cylinder #3 valve melted out and blew a hole in it while driving on the highway. The mileage on the car was only about 105K. Honda dealers, and Honda H.Q. refused to honor any claims since the mileage is over 80K.


Worst Features

Improve the reliability of the engine.

Review

I purchased a 1999 Honda Accord EX Coupe V6 in Apr 09 with 184,786 miles on it. The CarFax was downloaded on the website. Went to check it out. The engine was in great shape not "DOGGED" like most. Belts and chain replaced. No Tranny work done. But I can expect it to happen with this model. So I just go purchase a good warranty packet no big deal. This Honda is a great car. A drivers car not a "RACE CAR" Stop crying and face the facts. Normal maintenance, wear and tear. You cannot beat it.


Best Features

Very comfortable ride and I am a 6' 8in 242lbs guy. The mileage is great after you drop a K&N air filter in it. Love all the power options. And the "WOMEN" love a two door.


Worst Features

The stereo system is terrible. Can you at least use quality speakers. A stiffer sway bar should be standard. And please put 17 inch tires standard on all Honda models - that will help sales big time.
