1999 Honda Accord EX V6 4dr Sedan


I bought my EXV6 new, and needed to
replace the transmission at 42,000 miles
after doing all maintenance recommended
by the owners manual and more. Honda
ate 75% of the $5700 cost after one
month of bugging them. Honda extended
the tranny warranty on 00-01 models, but
neglected to do so with the 98-99 with
the same transmission. Requests to
Honda to explain any differences between
98-99 and 00-01 transmissions have gone
unanswered. EGR valve replaced at
60,000 miles under extended warranty.
Stereo replaced at 52,000 miles because
of constant CD skipping. Ignition
harnesses were recalled on many of these
cars - be careful!

Best Features

Sleeper car. Great acceleration. Good cargo space. Relatively mechanically sound other than transmission, exhaust, and electrical problems.

Worst Features

Sleeper styling could use some help. Suspension is mushy, car dosen't corner very well. OEM tires (Michelin MXV4+) are nearly gripless - I recommend replacing with Dunlop SP Sport A2 for about half the cost.
