1997 Honda Accord SE 2.2 from North America
Excellent car for day to day driving
Local dealer did not have the code for the radio/CD, had to dismantle the radio from the dash and send it to the manufacturer to put in a new code (2 weeks)!
Bearing in the left rear wheel replaced, speed sensor replaced, all on warranty.
This model, specially in the color Mystic Blue looks really good.
In city mileage is not as good as expected.
Ride though is excellent.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Agree with radio code hassle, but once you have the radio out, (15 minute operation with a phillips screwdriver), any Honda dealer can look up the codes.
You should not have had to send it off to the manufacturer.
Make certain you write the codes in the owners manual. Same goes for key codes.

I found the code to mine in the glove box on the top far left side. There is a little white sticker with two sets of numbers on it. The smaller number is the stereo code for when your radio asks for the code.

Speaking of stereos--I have a '96 with the factory am/fm/cassette/CD. The CD player is balky and will sometimes not start playing a CD. Instead, it will change back to the radio and eject the CD. If I leave the CD in place, the drive will eventually pull it back in, but then go to the "Pause" mode. If I press play, it'll eject, again. After 5-10 minutes of this nonsense, it'll finally start playing. Anyone else have a similar experience?
