2003 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Leather (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Original owner, now 7+ years old with about 70,000 miles, overall very reliable, nothing beyond regular maintenance until this year though the brakes need replacement too frequently. I had the rear first done at 20,000. Excellent mileage - 34-35 consistently on the long freeway trips, 26-28 in town mixed driving. The car is very responsive and peppy. The ride is a bit harsh however, and there is way too much road noise for a car in this class. This is my first Honda and I've been told road noise is common. My car tends to drift to the left and dealers have been unable to fully fix it. Annoying but not a huge deal.

Best Features

Pretty quick and responsive for a four cyl, love the auto climate control, good sound system and comfortable seating.

Worst Features

harsh ride, too much road noise, trunk is big, but opening is too small to anything at all large, lacks heated mirrors.
