There are many Accords in the family now, one from 1992, 1999, 2002, 2005, all very alive and reliable. It started with one, which proved itself well, and it just rolled on. Hoping to get the 2008-09 model.

Summary:

I love it and it loves me

Faults:

Radiator hose blew at 118,000. Nothing major, just maintenance - new tires twice, 115,000 mile belt changes, etc.

General Comments:

Love, love, love it. It's super reliable, even in the Chicago bitter cold. Always starts.

Comfortable for me and my 6'0" husband. Have taken it to three corners of the U.S. with no troubles.

Love the tight handling and good turning radius. Peppy ride and good pick up for a 4 cylinder. Drives great in snow and ice.

Crashed it in 2003 with front end damage and it came back and still performs like a dream. Site lines are good, no blind spots. I love the simple dash and easy controls.

I use it to haul things from the home supply store, and have good room in the trunk and seats, and can fit long items like a rolled up carpet or baseboard trim through the cubby hole opening in the back seats. I wish it would last forever. It's the best car I've ever owned.

Summary:

One heck of a machine :)

Faults:

Nothing really went wrong so far, but the alternator was making a loud sound, so I got that replaced before it stopped working.

If you drive a lot, like myself, the seats don't wear good (I have leather).

General Comments:

I would LOVE to buy another Accord when I finish with this one. It has been a wonderful car and very reliable to me.

Summary:

Great ride if it wasn't for the transmission issues!

Faults:

The transmission started to slip around 81,000 miles. It would jerk the RPMs rate in between gears, especially the 1st to 2nd gear. Thankfully due to my powertrain warranty, the transmission was fixed for free.

104,000 Miles; The car would stall frequently and the alternator was replaced. Fixed the problem.

125,000 Miles; Drivers window gear broke, leaving my window stuck in the 'down' position. Not too expensive to fix.

Nagging 'Check Engine' Light Emissions Issues in the 130ks; Minor in terms of cost for car repairs.

Many suspension parts replaced throughout the late 150-160ks such as tie rods.

160ks, the passenger side door locks work inconsistently and have to be manually locked most of the time.

174,000 miles. Transmission slipping again. Check Engine Light on. ABS sensor light on. Rest in Peace!

General Comments:

My Accord has been through a lot of Ohio winters, city driving, and lengthy highway trips. I've had my share of problems with the car, not to mention the regular repairs and replacements (spark plugs, brakes, oil changes, tires, battery, plus the preventative $400 timing belt replacement etc).

My car seemed to have some of the same nagging problems I see on these boards for the 98-02 Accords; the transmission slipping (esp 1st to 2nd gear) and check engine lights. I've noticed the check engine issues typically do not effect the performance of the car, but that light cannot be 'on' or you will not pass Ohio Emission Tests. However, I got pretty lucky with my transmission issues; had I not this would be a much more bitter review.

Climbed pretty high in the mileage though; never had issues with many parts that typically get replaced in vehicles; shocks/struts, mufflers/pipes, engine, A/C, electric, etc.

Summary:

It does not get any better!!

Faults:

Since purchasing the car I have had virtually no problems with it.

General Comments:

This car has performed flawlessly. The only money I have spent is for tires, brakes, gas and the recommended timing belt change at 100K miles and one battery. As I am able to do my own work the only cost has been parts.

With a 5 speed, leather, firm suspension, and good handling I call it the working man's BMW. At the same time it has been a great commuter and family car.

I taught 4 daughters how to use a stick shift and I still have the original clutch. It has to last 2 more years until I get them through college and then it will be replaced. The new car choice will be simple. Another Honda or an Acura TL.

It's very rare to find a Honda Accord with a 5 speed/leather combo I can tell you that much.
