2004 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


I purchased this for a commuter car. I wanted reliable transportation and a fuel efficient vehicle. It has never left me on the side of the road, but has had some issues. I did all the Honda recommended maintenance and during my 60000 check up, it was determined that the transmission needed replacing. Not good, if anything this part should never fail. I had other mechanical issues after the new xmission, I'll call it mechanic induced faults. I wasn't happy with the service dept. responsiveness. The front rotors have been turned down 3 times due to warpage. My gas mileage average is 27mpg, not much better(+2) then my V6 Bonneville I traded in. Battery died after 4 yrs, I'm OK with this.

Best Features

The 2.4L motor does have good pick up.

Worst Features

Seems like the front brakes have a design flaw with the rotor warp and are very touchy. My gas mileage never reached the full potential, I did try some uber mile tricks and that would get me an extra mpg, but I really had to work for it. The ignition makes a buzzing sound when starting, 1 out of 10.
