Think again about the Honda hype

Vehicle2004 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI have owned this Accord from new. Maintained it on a regular basis and have not abused it. The display went out in the radio and had to have the entire unit replaced, not once but twice. The fit and finish inside is terrible (sunglass holder pops open, the headline has bubbles, the plastic seat shroud will not stay together, etc.). The final straw is the timing chain jumped a tooth and has caused extensive engine damage. The mechanic stated that this is one of the cleanest engines that he has worked on, so it was not my maintenance on the vehicle. Do not believe all the hype about how a Honda runs forever. All of my other vehicles are GMs, and I have never had such issues.
Best FeaturesNice exterior look.
Worst FeaturesInterior fit and finish. Better timing chain design.
