2002 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Leather (2.3L 4cyl 4A)
I absolutely love this 2002 Honda Accord. I also own a Civic - which I hate as it is way too low to the ground. But this Accord sits at the right height to have great visibility and is off the ground enough that you have ease of in and out. The acceleration is good for a sedan and I have had no major repairs as of yet. Mine is loaded with leather, sun roof, all seats power, multiple cd player with great sound. The trunk is huge and has a passageway to the inside of the car via in between the back seats. Makes it possible to go to Home Depot and pick up many items that are too big for a different type car.
A good car pretty much all around with the exception of the transmission which was known to be troublesome for this model year. My 2002 accord had to have the transmission replaced 2 times. Very fortunately for me, the dealer was aware of this problem and covered the needed repairs. Have not had a transmission problem since the last occurrence about 8 years ago. This old girl now has more than 200k miles on her and she still runs fine.
This car is great in almost every way the only problem is Honda paired a strong engine with a very week transmission. Other than that its completely reliable starts the first time every time in any weather. great car in bad weather. and beats anything American built around the same time period.
Bought used $1500 @ 148,000 tranny slipping Installed used JDM $450 low miles & $300 install. Runs great no leaks AC cold. Bought leather interior LEATHER! panels $150 & seats $300 Looks like new. Very reliable and great on gas. Big car and good acceleration. Wouldn't sell or trade my LX-L. You can see it on Youtube. "Cleanest 02 Accord LX-Leather 2.3l"
