Honda Made a Mistake
"When you are buying a Honda, you are buying it for the reliability and long lasting. Think again Folks!!! Do your home work and check more than just Edmonds reviews and Carfax. This year and several other years, have transmission problems and it is all over the internet. This car had a recall only 1 year after it was built for the transmission. Guess what, it is still having problems and it only has 136,000 miles on it. The transmission is slipping when cold. Honda says sorry, you bought a used car. Ya, but it is a Honda, what happened to your reputation. Never again will I buy a Honda, new or used. Stuck with this one, unless I dump it on some other sucker that did not do there homework. One person said it best, "transmission problems, just like every one else out there." Going back to my Dodge and my amazing KIA. "
Interior
Nice interior but the comfort of the seats on a long ride, is a Honda for you.
Exterior
Nice look, paint in good but good hell, I hope you don't need to change a head light. Tear the whole front end off. A 3 hour job!
Performance
Transmission is slipping at only 136,000 miles.
Family
Small back seat for teenage kids.
Cost
Oil leaking, coolant leaking, and transmission is a huge problem.

Very happy with first Honda
"This car is in great shape. There are a few minor repairs to make but overall it has been well cared for and is low mileage. A lot of nice features too."

Clean car, just watch the automatic transmissions.
"The car rides great, lots of extras for 2003. The heated leather seats are comfortable, and the dual zone heating and cooling works well. The V6 has plenty of power, merging into traffic is not a issue. Check that the timing belt has been replaced if car has 90,000 plus miles. (the belt in this car was changed at ~89,000) Just watch the automatic transmissions."

"I bought the car because I had a 2006 Accord v6 that I regretfully sold for a Toyota. I ended up selling the Toyota to get back into an Accord and stumbled upon and 03 EX-L 2.4 liter. I'm starting to get used to a 4 cylinder in an Accord , and it drives really well. The idling can be a little rough at a standstill, but other than that, a smooth running car. "
Exterior
Great design.
Interior
My particular Accord is equipped with navigation. The Information Center display intermittently works. That can be frustrating sometimes. Other than that, everything works, the audio system plays well with excellent sound.
Family Friendliness
No problems here.
Cost Effectiveness
I've heard a lot of people say that Honda tends to be higher priced than any other make. I feel that this is true simply because I've driven other makes, and nothing is built better than a Honda. You may pay initially upfront more for a Honda, but in the long run, end up spending less.
Performance
For a four cylinder with 160 horsepower, you can't go wrong. But if you're looking for overall quick performance, then the 3.0 liter 240 horsepower v6 is the way to go.

"Bought used from the previous owner. It was a one owner car. This is my 4th Accord. Love the room, comfort, gas mileage for a V6. This will be my daily commute car and I couldn't me more comfortable or happy!"

"Great car overall so far. Like other Honda's I've owned this over 100K miles, this one uses oil; not excessive, but enough that you have to watch the levels. Estimate 1/2 quart every 1200 miles. Still, great car that is smooth, quiet, reliable and safe (oh, and has nice look for a 4 door sedan). Not sure what else I could ask of it. "

"I have purchases 1997, 1998, 2001, 2002 2009 Honda's. We have literally have driven 1 million miles in them. They last forever. Oil change, brakes, tires, timing belts are the biggest repairs. No brainers. "

"I bought this car for the gas mileage and for its reliability. It's a manual trans so its a little sporty great car, handles good. The only thing wrong with it was the stock stereo burnt out its a common issue from what i was told. It had a recall on the air bags they are on order and the seat belt is sloppy due to wear in tear Honda is replacing that for free as well. I would recommend this car to my friends "

"A beautiful car to drive. Glad I bought it. The CD changer does not work, Looks like that is an issue with these cars. I didn't think to try the CD since the radio works perfectly."

by CONNOR on September 15, 2014

"Bought the car on Craigslist after running a carfax. Literally drove the car 30 miles and then the transmission blew. Not Carfax's fault but just keep in mind the average automatic transmission for the v6 miles has a lifespan of 88k miles, and the car i bought on craigslist had 158. It was a ticking time bomb. Besides the tranny everything is great."
