2003 Honda Accord Coupe EX 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought the car new in '03...racked up 156k miles since. Overall a great car, minus a few issues. Reliability is great; only issue was a radio display that went out after 100k-Honda paid half. Engine still runs as smooth as when I bought the car. Great acceleration for a 4-banger. The bad: the rattles in the dashboard have been an ongoing issue since the car was new. Sounds like a tap-dancing gerbil lives in my dashboard...seats are pretty stiff, too. Overall, a very good car, minus the rattles. Still getting about 32 mpg- mostly highway. No issues with the manual transmission.


Best Features

Great gas mileage; good radio; interior display looks good; Honda reliability; feel like car could last another 100k


Worst Features

dash/sunroof rattles; brakes are average at best; road noise could be better; seats are pretty stiff

2003 Honda Accord Coupe EX 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought it with a few dings in it, but over all in great shape. Its a little four banger, but zips around town. Brakes like a champ and handles turns quite well. Very pleased with my purchase. Waiting to see how it handles in the snow and go from there.


Best Features

Sound system is awesome. Peppy. brakes great.


Worst Features

rear windshield wiper. gears can be tough to get in and out of. Bluetooth and an Ipod jack would of been even better.

2003 Honda Accord Coupe EX 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

6 months after purchase, the pcm computer and transmission failed at 118,000 miles. Appears that the computer told the trans to downshift into 1st and stay there. What seemed like a good used car now cost 50% more than we paid and is no longer a good deal. We are quite disappointed we bought this car.

2003 Honda Accord Coupe EX V-6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Man where to begin with this wonderful car. I love the way this car looks and getting behind the wheel is even more exhilarating. The car is sporty but yet sophisticated. Getting on the highway is a real rush in this vehicle. I can't wait to get my K&N air filter which will give my beauty "Silver Surfette" approximately 260 horsepower. I would recommend this car to anyone who loves comfort and performance.


Best Features

Definitely the 3.0 liter V6. I love the plush heated leather seats as well.


Worst Features

A car couldn't get any better. Perhaps it could be a little better on gas mileage.

2003 Honda Accord Coupe EX V-6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

The V6 has plenty of power and is fun to drive. There is problem with the transmission slipping that the dealers don't seem to be able to figure out. I have had the exterior window trim replaced 4 times since new and it needs to be done again. There are lot of interior squeaks that seem to be getting worse. The quality in finish work seems to be lacking. The metal and paint is very thin and chips/dings easy.


Best Features

Heated seats, fun to drive and plenty of power.


Worst Features

Heated outside mirrors. Better paint. Fix outside window trim. Backseat is almost impossible to access. Better sound system, speakers need more bass.
