1998 Honda Accord 2.2 iVTEC 2.2 petrol
Central Locking started to play up, fault fixed at dealership.
No other faults as yet.
Performance is decent enough, but I would have expected a little more than 148 BHP out of a 2.2 litre engine, especially a Honda vtec.
The car seems to be very jumpy and jittery and jumpy, and coupled with an unrefined engine and slightly thrashy ride, make driving it to be somewhat unpleasant. It's fairly crammed with extras, however, including leather seats (not very good quality material, doesn't really feel like leather), cruise control, etc.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I'm not sure how you could describe any Honda engine as "unrefined." All 4 cylinder engines vibrate inherently, and make more noise than larger engines, but Honda does them better than any I've ever experienced. If you're trying to compare it to a Mercedes-Benz at twice the cost, OK, but then that means there's no pleasing you.
