Brakes have been changed at least twice in 60,000 miles. I think this is maintenance.
Wheel bearing was worn in the rear.
New tires. Another maintenance item. My brother's 1999 Accord amazingly, yet very stupidly has its original tires at 85,000 miles.
This car was built in Marysville, Ohio as were all V6 Accords.
Change the transmission fluid often because there is no filter that is in it to filter out particles. This might be the reason why this car has a high failure rate with its transmissions.
Car is very well built and very safe. For its class it is very good. I would recommend the newer models with curtain airbags for more protection 03-06.
Very quick the car is very fast and can travel well with the crazy Illinois drivers and those crazy Detroit hot rodders.
Car died last week when a car crossed over a median going over 65 miles an hour and crashed head on into my car. The car was a complete loss, but the passenger compartment was unharmed and very intact. I walked out of the crash without any injuries.
I will buy another Honda Accord knowing that I am in a safe mid-sized car.
There is a bias out on this site and a lot of truth, but in my "1" 2002 American Accord, "2" 1999 American Accords, and "1" 1994 Japan Accord, I have been greatly pleased and would only compare these cars to Toyota. No American manuafacturer comes close to Honda or Toyota at quality and reliability.
