I bought this car from my uncle with 89k. Have had absolutely zero problems; the only maintenance I've done is a routine timing belt change (along with the water pump, which I figured I might as well replace w/ belt). Have not had the major transmission issue that seems to be common in the Honda V6; however, the tranny does hesitate between 1st and 2nd. The V6 is very quick, but I do not get very good gas mileage (20 in the city, 27 on highway) for a car of this size. Is not a head turner, but gets me from point A to point B in comfort and without problems.
Comfort of seats, interior room, quick acceleration, faux wood grain trim, automatic climate control
Speakers are awful - the ones in the back sound like they came from a $10 boombox. Not a lot of style, but hey, that's not what Honda builds cars for.
Had car for 8 years and a half. Original battery is still in the car. Had to replace the alternator for bad bearings. Did so with Honda parts. Never had a issue with the car. Interior is fine, all accessories have been excellent. roomy trunk, good room up front and the rear seat. Paint is great, I still get comments on the shine in the red. Engine really stays clean. Purchased the car with 30,500 miles on it in Feb. 2002. Great buy and possibly resell it soon and will get a great resell amount. So 8 years for $60 a month for the time owned. EXCELLENT
power seat, gas tank and trunk lid, remote for doors and trunk.
The only one 1 I can think of is he arm rest on the door. There needs to be a stronger backing in it.
Bought used Accord EX with 41K. Our transmission failed at 70K but I reported issues much earlier. Honda America was rude and irresponsible about transmission failure. They refused to own up and replace my transmission despite the class action suit requiring them to do so. Honda quality is far overrated. Parts and labor are very expensive also. Ride is not great on 2000 and seems worse in newer Accords. Interior is very nice although seats are not comfortable on long rides. Hope new transmission makes it to 150K. Honda has had a lot of issues with transmissions on Accord, Civic, and Odyssey. Like I said, much overrated for quality. Daughter's 99 Accord was an absolute money pit.
Fairly nice interior. Newer Accords have gone plastic. Give me a break. Handles and performs acceptably.
Too late now but fuel economy is poor for a small 4-cylinder vehicle. More supportive seats. Honda America needs to treat its customers better. They remain arrogant and uncaring about their customers. Forget Honda.
At 86,000 miles the transmission went on my 4 cylinder What a major disappointment. Could have gotten it fixed but it seemed to much $ to put into a ten year old car. Really sad and mad to see that Honda Accords have documented transmission problems. It was fun and reliable until then. Too mad at Honda to buy another one. Went Nissan Altima this time and am loving it.
