2002 Honda Accord Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I've 2002 Accord SE and my transmission started slipping when I hit the acceleration from 0 to 20 with check engine lights on, and on further tests Honda declares a BAD TRANSMISSION at 96,400 miles. It looks like I'm not alone here and I strongly wish Honda to recall this model.

2002 Honda Accord Sedan EX V-6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Bought the car new. Loved it until around 65k when the transmission gave out. $3000 to replace and no problems since. Honda really needs to pony up for the faulty transmissions on this year similarly to the recall on 2001 models


Best Features

Ride, handling


Worst Features

Fix the transmission

2002 Honda Accord Sedan SE 4dr Sedan w/Side Airbags (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Retired GM worker just wanting for once a reliable maintenance free car. I owned several GM vehicles, but there are only a handful that I would trust to purchase as a used vehicle. I am surprised as to how a vehicle with over 100K can handle, drive and look so brand new especially the interior. Good job Honda.


Best Features

Comfortable seats


Worst Features

spoiler for gas mileage perhaps

2002 Honda Accord Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.3L 4cyl 4A)


Review

This is the second accord (2002 SE 4 Door we owned), after my mom totaled our first one. We got it from a local used car dealership, the transmission started sliding when we hit 82k miles. While it is not worth it to have it replaced anymore, we can only live with it, and expecting jerking while step on the acceleration paddle.


Best Features

Exterior design, interior design, handling


Worst Features

brake is too weak, and they gotta fix this transmission.

2002 Honda Accord Sedan LX V-6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Accord 2002 V6 is apparently a lemon with regard to transmissions - 385 reported failures around the 110,000/120,000 mile mark. No recall because it's not a safety issue, and no class action (YET!) Timing chain went at 100,000 - $1,500 - also a "known issue". Paint is starting to fail - also a known issue. How many known issues with this vehicle do I have to know about? I'm looking at $4,000 for a new transmission. We've been a 2-Honda family for the last 15 years. We will not even be a 1-Honda family ever again.


Worst Features

Install a transmission that lasts longer than 100,000 miles.
