2000 Honda Accord SE 2.3 VTEC from North America
Not worth the extra money, get a cheaper car.
Head light keeps getting water in it... no damage..only left side--has done since new--Replaced under warranty.
Driver's door latch broke on outside when new-broke inside of door..
Thumping from front suspension... rubber busing disformed... fixed under warranty.
Rear defrost went out... after warranty.
Tape player will not take tape.
Transmission gear selector hard to move from N to D... lubed and still does it.. Trans shop says it is internal...$$$$$$$
A/c no longer blows cold, but it is full of freon they say...
Paint already dull.
Lots of paint chips on hood and front of car..
Sometimes the automatic transmission shifts hard... smashes into 2nd and 3d...but always goes into overdrive silky smooth.
Film keeps building up on inside of windshield and I don't smoke in the car.
Lots of bulbs going out..
Power steering sometimes changes in effort... I think it is going out..
Not really lived up to what I was told it would for quality.
They don't want to give me anything for a trade in... like Honda siad...Honda=high resale...yea--then prove it... mine is super clean and like new on inside.
Lack of power and seems to be loosing power since new.
Only 55,000-miles and I wonder if it will get me home..
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Sorry to hear it, because I am just another one in the endless lineup of happy Accord owners (two cars in ten years). It is possible that quality fluctuates due to manufacturing/supplier issues. But that determines if car is good or not.
Well, I still think that Honda got it right. I also bough mine on the promise of refinement and reliability its reputation carries. It didn't disappoint me.
I think that Honda's manufacturing must know about such defects and problems. It would be important to make sure that the info gets there, so the imperfections will be eliminated till we get our next Accords. Happy driving!

Watch out with that automatic. My aunt had a 2000 Accord LX and (as expected by reliablity reviews) completely failed. She replaced it with a 2008 Accord 4cyl EX-L. The 2008 is a quantum leap from this vehicle.
