2000 Honda Accord LXi 3.0 VTEC from Australia and New Zealand
Nothing at all.
Top class car. Easy start every time.
Smooth gear change and superb ride. Total power when required from this 3 litre super quiet engine.
Car was imported brand new from Japan.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Just to clarify - are you sure this was a Japan-new car? I'll totally eat humble pie if I'm wrong on this, but I thought all right-hand-drive V6 Accords from 1998, were made in Thailand, but were not sold new in the Japan market.
I presume you are talking about the wide-body Accord that was sold in the US as an Acura, and in Australia and NZ as a Honda Accord V6. The narrow body Accord is known as the Euro. The Euro never got the V6 motor.
I've spent in total about 6 weeks in Tokyo, and tend to spend most of my time looking at cars, and have never seen a wide-body V6 Accord there of the era yours is (1998 - 2002).
Or could it be the Japanese market got a narrow body Accord (Euro) with a smaller (2000 cc?) V6 motor than the 3000 cc motor in the wide-body cars? What capacity is your engine?

My car is a 2000 Honda Accord Euro R CL1 with a H22a7 engine 2200CC 4 cylinder.
They also come as a Honda Torneo, exact same engine apart from slightly different front and back.
