1998 Honda Accord EX 2.3 from North America
It's not the prettiest, fastest, nor best - but, she's always there when I need her.
PROBLEM: Automatic Transmission - with around 55,000 miles on the car, I noticed a persistent, but mild vibration from the front end when the car was first driven in the morning. At first, I thought the tires needed balancing, so we did that a few times. However, the problem persisted. Took it to the dealership and they said everything looked OK. Made a few more trips back to them with the same problem and then they told us the "Differential Side Bearing" was bad and needed to be replaced. I asked what that meant $$$-wise and they told me I would need a new transmission. Unfortunately, their diagnoses was after 60,000 miles. Good thing, they agreed to provide a new/rebuilt auto transmission.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
