2003 Honda Accord EX 2dr Coupe w/Leather (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


Bought this as my work car this past Christmas break with 121k miles on it.
These are great cars but Honda did have some troubles with this new body style in '03.
The V6's eat up transmissions if you are the type to mash the gas and make the transmission shift under full throttle acceleration.
The 4 cyls don't seem to have transmission issues.
I had to replace the cruise control switch on the steering column which was an easy and cheap fix ( $35 on eBay ). The driver side door lock actuator which requires taking the door panel off went bad ( $20 on eBay ).
Drivers seat belt light on the dash won't go out even though I have it buckled.
Not that big a deal.
Overall a great car for $5800

Best Features

The Coupe is not a bad looking car. Nice driving, good on gas, comfortable, dependable, good stereo. About as good a used car as there is.

Worst Features

The V6 Accords have a history of transmission problems. The '03 models seem to have bad interior switches but these cars are easy to work on, parts are cheap and easy to get. Overall Accords are good dependable cars if you get a 4 cyl. You have to do some research when you buy tires. Make sure you buy quiet tires. If you put noisey tires on an Accord they will drive you nuts! Any tire noise seems to get amplified in an Accord for some reason.
