2001 Honda Accord LX 4 cylinder from North America
One of the most reliable cars you'll ever own
An ongoing issue with the transmission. As we all know, when you press the brake pedal it releases the shifter to allow you to place the vehicle into drive or reverse. Sometimes it's not catching so I am not able to get the car into 'D.' I've since replaced a wiring harness (for around $150 - labor included) everything has been working fine for over 3 months.
A great all-around vehicle. If you're looking for a vehicle that gets excellent gas mileage, smooth ride, and that will last you over 300,000 miles, the Honda Accord is the way to go.
Even though most of the time I prefer SUV's or trucks due to their size and comfortability, the Accord actually has a lot of room for a car.
The only ongoing complaint I have is that if you're going to be making long trips (450+ miles) the seats are going to get a little uncomfortable. There is a knob on the drivers side to adjust the tilt of the seat, although this does very little, it helps.
As I said before this is an extremely reliable vehicle to own and a pleasure to drive. The resale value is also considerably higher than other cars so if you're one to trade in a couple of years you won't loose as much.
I would certainly recommend this vehicle to anyone.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Well if you don`t mine replacing the transmission ever 50000 miles. I guess it's a pretty good car.

My 00 Accord has 150,000 miles on it and does not need to be replaced. I maintain my car and I think that the ones that need replacing more often are not maintained. Plain and simple!
