2002 Honda Accord EX 2dr Coupe w/Leather (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


For the past 15 years, I’ve been a fan of Honda. In 2001, I bought a brand new Honda Accord and took meticulous care of the car. While there were moments of spirited driving, there was never any abuse of the engine.

After just 103,000 miles, the vehicle was diagnosed with a cracked engine block. Honda initially refused to participate in any repairs. However, after extensive discussions with Honda, they offered 1,500 in a 7,000 repair.

Needless to say, for a car that’s supposedly legendary in terms of reliability, I’m disappointed in the quality of the car and Honda’s response.

Given the poor quality of the product and the lack of customer service, I will never buy a Honda again.

Best Features

-Great interior design and layout -Solid all-around performance until the engine block cracked

Worst Features

-An engine block that does not crack -Decent customer service
