Extremely reliable to the point it's surprising
We've really hadn't had anything go wrong with this car.
It's an amazing car in my opinion. We bought the car with 60k miles on it, we drove it to 155k and then put new tires on it. Even if the dealership put new tires on it when we bought the car, my wife got almost 100k on a set of tires. I'm doubting they put new tires on it. But maybe.
We never got the timing belt changes, and it has a 170k miles on it. So I was worried since these are to be changed at 100k. So I just scheduled to have it changed. Not because we had any issues, just because more of preventative maintenance.
The car has 170k miles on it and we finally started changing brake pads.
We've never had to give this car a tune-up.
Just regular oil changes and an air filter every so often.
Literally I feel this is one of the better made cars on the market.
I wasn't really a fan of Hondas, but I have to say I would recommend one to anyone. It's a great and reliable car. If you don't hot rod the car around and use it as a daily commuter, this thing will last forever.
Everything we have done to this car is just because it lasted so much longer than it was supposed to last, that we just got worried and performed the maintenance anyhow. The tires were in OK shape, just worn oddly, so we bought new ones. The brakes finally started to squeak around 165k miles. I would have to believe that the dealership must have put new tire and brakes on the car when we got it, but they never said they did. So I'm not 100% sure..
Anyhow, if you want a now inexpensive and reliable ride, an 03 Honda Accord with the V6 is definitely a good choice.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
