Not So Sure About Honda Anymore
By uthookem on


2003 Honda Accord EX V-6 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Bought this used in 2007 with 60, 000 from a Honda dealership. I always noticed that this car didn't have the smoothest downshifting, but other than that, it was great. I'm now at 125, 000 and it shifts hard quite a bit. Within the past months on 2 occasions it has refused to accelerate with my foot on the gas, and the check engine and TCS lights immediately come on. After reading many other reviews and complaints about this car, I'm sure I know what's about to happen...

Best Features

The body style and interior are very nice and built well, true quality. However, the problems await under the hood of the car.

Worst Features

UPDATE! About 4 months after I made this comment not surprisingly my tranny failed. I got it rebuilt to the tune of $1800. I also have a 1998 accord 4 cylinder that's still driving beautifully, never had the issues that this 2003 is giving me. Avoid this car like the plague. There's a reason this model is ranked 2nd worst car on carcomplaints.com.
