Note - this was a "Certified Honda Used Car"
Wheel was out of balance - took to dealership several times - they rebalanced - never was "right". Took to a tire place - found out that the wheel was actually out of round (warped) - replaced the wheel - no problems afterward.
Front Brakes had to be replaced 2 times in 40k+ miles - Dealer could not find any problems with the brakes - however outside repair technician finally commented that rotors were severely warped for quite a long time. Had an F150 prior - drove 50k miles - never had to change the brakes once.
Clutch had to be replaced at 72k miles. According to the repair technician - clutch was severely burned - most likely due prior to my purchase (old burn).
Oil leak detected @ 74k miles - Head Gasket was blown - leaked oil onto the timing belt, etc.
Needless to say - I traded in this vehicle and took a huge loss on it @ 78k miles. Traded it in on a 2004 Kia Optima LX - 16k miles to date and NO problems.
This was my first Honda that I've owned - probably will be the last.
Overall - the Accord - when not in the shop - was a nice car to drive. Mileage was acceptable - Quiet - fairly smooth ride - kind of "jumpy" over rougher roads.
Reliable? with the amount of money I spent fixing the problems with the Honda - I'd have my Kia Optima paid off by now.
The Optima is the same option-for-option as the previous Honda Accord - plus I now have a 10yr/100,000 mile warranty to boot.
Please note - I believe this specific car had issues - I have several friends with Accords that haven't had any issues. Essentially - I seriously question the validity of Honda's "Certified Car" program - obviously this car fell through the cracks.
