2005 Honda Accord EX 4dr Sedan w/Leather (2.4L 4cyl 5A)


It must not rain in Japan. Honda routes the air intake toward the bottom of the engine, resulting in sucking in water when driving through a not-that-deep accumulation of water in a road. Cost, $4,000 for a replacement engine. The driver's side window motor failed after four years. Cost, $600. The two oxygen sensors failed after five years. Cost, $500. Now there is a problem with the keyless entry/alarm, which won't lock and arm. All this on a car bought new and currently having 18,000 miles on it and 8,000 miles on the engine. Also, we only get maybe 16 or 17 mpg in town. Should have listened to my wife and bought another Toyota!

Best Features


Worst Features

Build a car with a smarter air intake location (I was told by the insurance adjuster that this was a common insurance filing with Hondas and Acuras).
