2003 Honda Accord EX V-6 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


I bought it used in 2012 with about 181k. That thang was surprisingly fast. Loved taking it out on the highway on trips. It was my 3rd Honda. I drove it from Philly to Atlanta and back. Tranny died at 211k. I drive a lot. I must say, it was low on trans fluid but it was also very very dark. I don't know too much about cars my research suggests there could have been that common issue of the 3rd gear not being lubricated properly and grinding out....or maybe neglect on my part. Either way, I don't have the car. I sold it cheap but really miss it! Wish I'd kept it and just replaced trans. I should have noticed the subtle hard downshift from 3rd the 2nd from the beginning...can't win em all.

Best Features

Body style. Low profile. The car seems to be assembled the same as my other Hondas so that consistency is a plus.

Worst Features

I had trouble changing my headlight bulbs. Wish they were easier to get to. Or make it easier to remove the entire headlamp...
