2002 Honda Accord EX from North America
Extremely reliable, great engine and ergonomics
Front interior overhead light switches work when they want.
Clutch went @ 125,000 miles (but that's usual).
The steering wheel doesn't telescope, and it's school bus-sized.
Suspension set up more for comfort rather than spirited driving (personal preference).
Very comfortable interior.
All of the controls are intuitively laid out.
The engine has good punch above 4000 rpm when the VTEC kicks in.
Excellent gas mileage. I average about 26mpg driving mostly city miles.
Seriously reliable. Seriously.
The clutch and shifter have a sublime feel to them. A great car for someone who is just learning to drive a manual, or for a more experienced driver (pedals are in a good position for heel-and-toe braking).
Excellent in the snow and wet due to front wheel drive.
Honda is a very thoughtful company, for instance, if a tail light goes out, there is an indicator in the gauge cluster!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
