1999 Honda Accord EX V6 V6 from North America
High performing family car
Clock light cuts out at times.
Steering wheel audio controls don't work at times.
Good engine, good highway performer, smooth and powerful acceleration.
Fairly good on gas for a V6.
Good fit and finish inside, aside from some annoyances with the clock light and the steering wheel audio controls.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

11 month follow-up (110,00km) : I was able to fix the light on the clock, it's an easy DIY, if you can replace the vanity lights, then you can replace the clock light. Instructions are easily googled, but you pull out the clock unit and change the bulb with a philips. The bulb at the dealer runs ~$6 CAD.
Accord still runs great.
16 months - so far so good. good performance all around still, very satisfied. minor things:
-interestingly, when I tried mid-grade fuel (at a different gas station than usual), the car started to stall at low-revs, which disappeared when I went back to regular. I suspect problems with gas quality rather than some sort of intolerance for mid-grade.
No added maintenance other than regular schedule.
4.5 yrs of ownership and doing well. I replaced timing belt (regular maintenance). Dealer tried to upsell a water pump replacement at the same time, (not recommended by Honda) and I defered. We'll see who's right. Overall still satisfied with the Accord.
