2004 Honda Accord LX-E 3.0L from North America
It has been OK and served the basic purpose of transportation
The A/C control module / circuit board has had to be replaced at a cost of over 1,500.00. It is failing again, as the driver's side vents will blow heat at the same time the passenger side is blowing A/C, when the system is set to A/C and the same temp for both.
The struts have had to be replaced a couple of times, although probably to be expected with this many miles.
The cruise control buttons stopped working; the button to turn cruise on and off would not stay depressed. A toothpick has taken care of that - keeping it pushed into the "on" position so cruise can be enabled or disabled.
The chrome knob on the shifter has broken off and has to be taped into place, so the car can be put into park.
The main issue is that the navigation system has failed completely. This is apparently a relatively common failure and it will cost in excess of 400.00 to repair. In addition to the navigation system, almost all of the comfort controls on the car are managed through this module. We cannot set the clock, and cannot change the heat/AC modes for vent or fan speed. We have lost the ability to use preset radio stations or change the speaker balance.
It has been durable other than the items that failed. It gets us where we need to go, although we will not rely on it for long trips any longer.
Comfort is a C+, and not really comfortable for long trips.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
