2000 Honda Accord EX V6 3.0 VTEC from North America
It's reliable if you're lucky
SRS airbag sensor is bad.
Major engine problem.
Altenator went bad.
Dash light isn't working.
CD player doesn't work.
Well, I had a 96 Accord before this car, and it was great, nothing was wrong with. So after that one hit 150k, I decided to move to the V6 model for the extra features.
I bought the V6 model - it had 75k and by the time it had 100k, the SRS sensor went bad, which I have to pay $1000 to fix. Also my cylinder head got burned from normal driving, so I had to pay $2000 to fix, and now it has 150k and I am worried that this car might have more problems.
I am done with Honda cars. Now I am thinking of moving to a Lexus - they are more comfortable and I personally think more reliable. It's worth the money.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Except when your water pump goes out on that Lex it will cost you 2 G's at the dealer.

Go ahead with the Lexus. They are as good as any other car out there, better than BMW or Mercedes, I feel. And a lot of newer cars cost a lot to fix anyway. A friend of mine paid several hundred dollars to replace the water pump on his Escort (!). On my Toyota pickup I paid $35...

It's probably more to do with labour cost, to be honest.
The water pump for my MX-6 cost £44 but I know for a fact that a Mazda dealer will charge around £500 to replace it because of the amount of disassembly required.
