1999 Honda Accord

Honda Accord Consumer Reviews By Year:
1999 Honda Accord

NEW FOR 1999

For the 1999 Honda Accord, coupes remain unchanged after their recent overhaul, but the sedans receive new seat fabric, and the LX and EX sedans now feature fold-away side mirrors.


Good build-quality, spacious interior, peppy engine, and comfortable seats. We call it intelligent engineering.


Popularity. Bad guys steal them.

1999 Honda Accord
I have not had any problems out of my Honda Accord since I bought it 3 years ago. I have had to replace the breaks almost every year and have already replaced the rotors and I am not hard on breaks.???

Rock Solid Reliability
In 2.5 years this car has been flawless in terms of reliability.

Accord lives up to billing
My 2 1/2 year old Accord is excellent in reliability and dependability. Having driven a friend's newer Accord 6cyl I noticed my 1999 isn't quite as peppy. It really is a great car though. I'll buy another one. (in about 7 years)

I love my Honda
I have owned this car for almost two years. It is a fantastic car in every sense. The pickup on this v-6 is outstanding and it has great vision from the drivers perspective as I am short and have had problems with other vechicles I have owned or rented. I give it a two thumbs up in every respect.

accord reliabile but borring
this car will always start and be there when you need it. But the stlying has stayed the same for some years now, and its getting dull very fast.

Excellent Car
Never had a problem with my 1999 Accord EX. This car is very quick. I never have to worry about merging or getting over, because I can pass just about anything else on the road. Excellent car!

its a honda
I think the body style is one of the best on the road. I feel a little cramped in it though. I think one of the most useless features is the power height adjustment. I still dont sit low enough in it even when its all the way down. My daughter plays a joke on me when she raises the seat before i get in and i wind up practically cutting my legs off between the seat and steering wheel. It handles great. It is a blast to drive. Could use some more cojones though.

A great Car for Sure!
I bought this car new. It ia fun to drive and has never given me any problems what-so-ever!

1999 Honda Sedan LX V6 4DR
I chose the car for the smooth transition between gears then for the quality, power and great looks of the interior and the exterior.

Fastest Automatic Honda you can get
Its design that has charisma always stuck in my head since I ever saw it. Accords do not look like 'boyracer' style, also do not look like 'old people' car. But, you can race with it tho. If you want to... Its engine is so powerful, it hit 0-60mph in 7.5sec.It is so roomy and comfortable. Its interior is perfect! I hope you all you guys enjoy your life with an accord !!!

1999 Honda Accord EX Sedan
This is the best car I have ever had, I love it. It drives great on the highways. It has good pick up power. There is tons of room and very comfortable.

By lewiss7 on September 3 @ 11:00 am
Seems to be getting better
When new this car had abrupt downshifting. Now shifting is so smooth that you can't notice it.

By mack1daddy on September 11 @ 11:00 am
Best Sedan for the money
Great car. Fast, quiet, reliable. Ergonomics are perfect.

By Steve Ngo on June 7 @ 11:00 am
This is my 4th Honda Accord and I have 6 Hondas total. Since my 1991 Honda Accord, we have never seen the dealer for any repair jobs. Only for maintenance work. Hondas are great cars, and the Accord remains on my list every single year.

By Gayblaze on October 6 @ 11:00 am
Accord EX V6 Coupe
Car is a value, but Honda sure earns it back in costs for routine service! Two glitches that should not have happened - seat adjuster died (under warranty), cruise control light died (just after warranty). Latter cost nearly $200 to fix!

By bytrain on October 31 @ 11:00 am
Can't be beat!
Wonderful car. This was our 3rd Accord, and we have been very happy with it. The interior ergonomics are so much better than any American car on the market. It handles beautifully, and being a one-car family, it's reliability has given us lots of peace of mind. I highly recommend this car.

By 3rdHondacar on September 25 @ 11:00 am
Surprised by Honda
I loved the look of this car when it first appeared back in 1998. I finally bought a pre-owned Accord, a 1999 model, this last year in 2001. I've gotta say, the car looks great in and out (I get compliments often from friends), BUT I've never owned a car with so many rattles. The dash, glove box, and back shelf rattle to no end-- I've attempted the dealer repair route and got nowhere. THEN, the car began stalling: this is an automatic. After FOUR trips to an independent repair shop, they were able to narrow down the cause. It was a lease-return with low miles, so I was not expecting to encounter problems.

By Erickrocks on November 24 @ 11:00 am
Excellent car
What a great car. Coming from a 300ZX, I was used to a sports car. My 2dr V6 coupe has the power of my old Z (and more) but the comfort and room of a full size car. Just turned over 60200 miles in 3 years, and have had almost no problems at all. Handles well for a sedan type car (with high performance sport tires -- ditch the Michelens), comfy to drive, looks good, decent power, and a great value. Removed the stock airbox and put in a KN cone type air filter system...the motor sounds great!!

By r. louder on January 6 @ 11:00 am
gutless roadnoise
interior functionality wonderful, exterior appearance fine, driveability deplorable. Extremely underpowered, intense road noise, you have to scream to talk and turn the radio full volume to hear anything AM. I have already replaced the battery which was not warranty-every other car has a 3-36,000 includes batteries? I had to buy mine!

By iamj2b on December 1 @ 11:00 am
Honda Accords Rule
Excellent reliability. Great to drive on highway.

By mgarida on August 28 @ 11:00 am
Great except for road/wind noise
This is my second Honda Accord and I have generally been pleased with performance & reliability. After purchasing this one I noticed very loud road / wind noise when traveling on the highway. Talking quite loud is necessary for conversation on the highway. The vehicle has a sunroof with bug shield, which may have some culpability but the noise does not seem to be localized in that area. That's my only complaint, but it's a very annoying problem.

By rainstorm on November 14 @ 11:00 am
This car is why I came back to honda
My first car was a '91 honda civic sedan. I thought the car was ok, until I leased a '98 toyota corolla. I did not like the way it handled and even though it had all the power options and sun-roof, I would have gladly traded back to my old civic. after a while I got used to the corolla, but when the lease was up I went straight back to Honda. I purchased a '99 Accord. It was like sitting in my favorite chair again. I love it. The power, the speed, the room, the trunk space, the compliments that I get when I get my oil changed (they think I do my own work on it too...I never open the hood)

By Pepper81 on July 24 @ 11:00 am
Reliability Nope!!!
I decided to cut down on the mileage of my Mercedes which had 240K miles and get a reliable yet economical car. Honda was recommended. The check engine light came on at 50K miles. It was a faulty EGR valve. Honda sent me a service notice that the design in the EGR valves were faulty and that for 7 years or 80K miles if the check engine light came on and it was determined to be the EGR valve, that it would be replaced. At 70K miles the EGR valve replaced again. Next the trans started slipping and acting erractic. A $630 repair job and a bandage fix. Recommendation a replacement trans for $4600. Now hub bearing, a gasket causing antifreeze leak have appeared.

By Franklin on July 6 @ 11:00 am
All that I had hoped
Car has good acceleration with smoth handling. Interior is very comfortable. No maintenance problems in 3 years+

By Scarlett on December 9 @ 11:00 am
I Love My Honda!
I've always had VWs..all models...never thought I'd switch, but when I test drove my Honda, I fell in love with the comfort and ease of driving this car...it flies. Plus, I love the leather interior and the beauty. That is not prevelent with the VWs. Honda is a smoother drive and since I keep my cars for about 12 years, Honda is the way to go...I researched this. Honda's have a great safety record and low maintenance record also. My kind of car. I'm loving it.

Blue Coupe Honda
Reliable Car. 4 Cylinder engine which makes for a slow take off. Lately one very hot days, over 99 degrees, my car has been having trouble starting. Have taken the car to the dealership and they have not found any problems. Car tends to idle too high sometimes. But have not had any major problems from this car.

By islander on June 16 @ 11:00 am
great buy
excellent quality,and very dependable.would highly recommend to anyone looking for great value for what you pay.my car looks good rides good and is comfortable. i know i drove it from coast to coast. also it holds its value very well. the next car i buy will be a honda.

By Katrina Kesler on November 1 @ 11:00 am
This is a truly wonderful car
This is the best car I've owned, I will continue to only buy Honda in the future.

By razingkane on June 13 @ 11:00 am
60,000 miles and not even broken in yet
I purchased my 99 Accord EX 4cyl new so I figure now is a good time to write a review. The car has been exactly what I expected it to be. It’s been extremely reliable, great gas mileage, very good ergonomics, and fun to drive. The car has not seen the inside of a repair shop expect for routine maintenance and the one recall. The ergonomics is great as is the fit and finish and the type of materials used. To keep the cost down Honda choose not to illuminate the locks, power windows and the secondary controls on the steering wheel when the lights are on at night. The pedals are perfect for me and I really appreciate the large dead pedal.

By Cflajohn on January 22 @ 3:00 am
Great Car
I own Honda Accords until I run them up to 150k miles then trade.( 3 ) The EX v-6 is the best...no maintainance problems, great ride, quick, I can fold down the back seat and stick a 10' surfboard inside the car!! I am 6'3" 220# and I have plenty of room with the auto adjust driver's seat

By chorobe on July 4 @ 3:00 am
Better than I thought!
I never thought I would find myself in an Accord because there were so many of them on the road already and I did not want to be like everybody else. But when I test drove this car, I understood why it was so popular. And for $13,000 for a used one with 38000 miles, it was perfect. The car is quiet, comfortable, and has plenty of power coming from the 200HP Vtec engine. And I definitely like the exterior styling on this generation compared to the new 2003 models.

By Tim Martin on September 20 @ 3:00 am
Great Car
Fun car to drive...good balance between power and weight

By DeepBlu on August 16 @ 3:00 am
Honda Accord LX 1999
Car is comfortable. Got a good price. Handles very well. Good in snow. Excellent 4 cyl. engine. Never a problem with it. Although 10 more hp would be great.

By Anuj on January 19 @ 3:00 am
Great car
Hondas are truly great cars....

By MrMayr on May 19 @ 3:00 am
Excellent Experience
I've had the car for 3+ years now, and it has been excellent. No repairs, rides like new, holding up very well.

By jasmin on August 5 @ 3:00 am
One of the best cars made
This was my first car and I have to tell you, it was my favourite. Everything about just made me swoon, from the sound of the engine to the comfort of the leather, to even the sunglass holder in the overhead. My parents loved it so much that when my lease was over, they bought it! The only problem I really had was that for a student, it wasn't very good on gas, and the maintenance was expensive from the dealership. Also, my heated seat malfunctioned once and almost burned my butt off! (well at least that was what it felt like) but no other problems. Honda fixed it immediately, and actually gave me coupons for 3 free maintainence checks.

By Not on August 31 @ 3:00 am
Transmission Failure
I bought my EXV6 new, and needed to replace the transmission at 42,000 miles after doing all maintenance recommended by the owners manual and more. Honda ate 75% of the $5700 cost after one month of bugging them. Honda extended the tranny warranty on 00-01 models, but neglected to do so with the 98-99 with the same transmission. Requests to Honda to explain any differences between 98-99 and 00-01 transmissions have gone unanswered. EGR valve replaced at 60,000 miles under extended warranty. Stereo replaced at 52,000 miles because of constant CD skipping. Ignition harnesses were recalled on many of these cars - be careful!

By Nightridas on February 21 @ 3:00 am
Best car
I love this car it's very reliable

By honda99 on August 13 @ 3:00 am
what is with power lock solenoids ?
It is a great car overall. However, as soon as the warranty expired on my Honda 99, the power lock solenoids started to go bad one by one. I thought it was just a sticky solenoid. But, now, I have all four solenoids that are inop. Has anyone else experienced this ? What is the estimated cost to replace these ?

By LoveThisHonda on October 30 @ 3:00 am
Love this Honda
My first Honda, definately not my last! No comparison as far as quality and reliability from any other car. Comfortable, nice ride, very smooth and quiet. The V6 is AWESOME. Interior and exterior design is outstanding. I traded in my Lincoln for it (loooking for a bit smaller car) and thought I was stepping down in quality. The Honda is by FAR a better Car! Already thinking about getting a 2003, also. I Love this car and if your considering getting one, just do it!

By Sundance on July 17 @ 3:00 am
Remarkable Car
We have owned a number of Accords and this is the best by far. It looks and drives like the day we bought it. Our servicing dealer has done all the normal PM and we have had no mechanical problems. It still has the original brakes! While we have drived a new V6 Accord and the Acura, they do not materially inprove on this car.

By runewell on January 7 @ 3:00 am
Spacious interior design, quiet ride
I love this car. I tested several cars and this one had a very open and relaxed feel, while other cars seem to have the driver "boxed in". The 4-cyl is a fairly quite engine. My only complaints is that my gas mileage so far has been 21/27 and the specs (which may be merely an average) I recall as 23/30. But I haven't taken any serious road trips yet, so maybe it's better on the highway. The dealership Poquet Auto was great. No haggle-pricing, speciailizing in cars coming off leases - just the amount of depreciation we wanted on our vehicle. The car's paint job was meticulously touched up and we got new tires & brakes.

By Max Shao on June 29 @ 3:00 am
three problems with the new cars
Three problems with Honda Accord: 1) The car jitters when the driver wants to accelerate after slowing down for a turn or for a stop sign. It is very uncomfortable and it is dangerous, e.g., when one wants to make a left turn and the car does not accelerate smoothly and promptly. 2) Banging noise when one starts the engine. These two problems occur in every new Honda Accord of 1998-2001 years. Honda can do nothing about them. 3) The engine stalls due to ignition switch prematurely worn out. It is dangerous since if your engine stalls while driving in traffic, you are at risk of being hit. Honda has recalled its 1997-99 Accord for repairing this defect.

By Gaile on January 14 @ 3:00 am
loyal to honda forever
This is my second NEW Honda (my first was a 97 accord) and I am trading it in for my third new Honda this month. I have had NO mechanical problems with it in 72,000 miles. Everything inside the car MAKES SENSE for the driver and the passengers. I never had to worry about whether or not my car would start, or whether I had the power to pass a slow truck on a two-lane mountain road. In fact, my first Honda was nicknamed Balto by my kids - after the incredibly loyal and reliable sled dog from the legend. Bottom line, I LOVE this car, and you will too!

By 6thgenaccord on June 18 @ 3:00 am
77,000 miles and counting
Got a Honda Accord Ex sedan in Apr. 99 and it is a wonderful investment. The only gripes that I've had were like the guy in the previous review said, I got scared when the engine stalled when I was in the left turn lane. Everything died and I was luckily able to make it to my Honda dealer after restarting the car 10 times. Honda fixed it free of charge though cause it was a recall. That happened when the car was at 60K miles. Now, its at 77K and still running well. I just wish now it had more horsepower

By Don Weston on April 26 @ 3:00 am
Great car!
My only complaint with this car is road noise. At freeway speeds there is a fair amount of road noise that seems to come from under the car. Other than that, we love this car.

By Chrismacpimpdad on September 12 @ 11:00 am
Honda has done it again...
Car Pimpers beware, stick with a civic or the empty engine of a 4c 02^ camry. Interior design is perfect along with its sporty exterior. Perfect handling. V6 engine is a dream. Don't race this car you will lose to it.

By slim on September 12 @ 11:00 am
It's a Great One
I have enjoyed owning this car more then any other. It drives like a dream and looks great. Safety test on this car indicate that it is least likely to roll over compoared to others in the same vechile class and performs above the average on crash tests. Other then regular 3,000 mile oil changes and the recommended check ups, I have spent no money on upkeep or maintenance.

By Silver99 on February 15 @ 11:00 am
Such an Unremarkable car!
I'm tired of this thing after only 1 year. I still don't see what all the fuss is about. This car is terrible in cold weather and rain. The engine makes a beautiful sound, but that is about all you can expect from it. The 2.3L probably would scream in a Civic, but is not quite enough for the heavy Accord. The interior just screams cheap. The steering is a loose and shaky, as are the brakes. After a year, I already want to get rid of it. What a boring car.

By canddmeyer on July 22 @ 11:00 am
My review
Fantastic. Two minor complaints otherwise its perfect. When Honda makes a full-sive SUV or pickup as good as the Accord, domestics are in more trouble. Will definitely buy another (wife insists).

By DemandEasy on May 12 @ 11:00 am
A family car
Like the look inside & outside. Great gas mileage with 25/30 easily. Performance, ride, feel, quality, fuel economy basically hold after 4.5 years in use. Dynamic performance is so so even in new but this type of car is mainly for family use. Overall impression? A solid car with high quality for years - a huge plus for any vehicle. High resale value is the reflection of that. Complaints? Yes. Screw loose type of rattle noise is kind of born with the car and annoying. Trans automatic gear shift is not the best. Engine is occasionally hard to start in cold or raining days.

By JKirk on July 29 @ 11:00 am
Honda accord ex coupe
This is a great vehicle. I feel in love with the LX but could only afford the Ex version. I have not been disappointed. I have had no problems other than: -a seatbelt attachment replacement - a brake sensor needing adjustment - door locks going out Most of these things were covered by warranty. Although I do not have the V6, I still like how this car performs, rides, and looks. After four years, I am still very happy with it and plan to hold onto it for quite a while. It's nice to know that Honda's really hold their value in case I do decide to trade in.

By Elbert on February 13 @ 11:00 am
one of the best cars I've owned. Only replaced brake pads and normal service approaching 100k miles...

By Saintor on March 10 @ 11:00 am
All ownership should be like this
This is my second Accord. I purchased the car at the end of my 48 months lease. For what it is, it drives great. It inspires confidence on the road and the car is easy to position even over the limits. An ideal format for me and it is very roomy. I wouldn't be confortable in a smaller car like an A4 or 3-series. I had a few minor issues, but no unexpected out of pocket expense in 110000km. (except the tire jack that crashed with no reason)! Service from dealer (Blainville) is very good. Styling is contemporary and better than average for the class. I can only recommend.

By Ace Trumper on April 3 @ 11:00 am
A dream with two flaws
I like my 1999 Honda Accord EXVS better than any other I ever owned or even rented or borrowed. I wish it got better mileage, but 28 isn't bad for a V6 with this performance. The only real flaw is that it is possible for my wide foot to depress the brake pedal so far that it also pushes the gas pedal. This caused a minor accident that might have been serious. The dealer says the pedal are normal, and act like it's my fault, but this should not happen in a properly designed car.

By kjandersen98 on December 12 @ 11:00 am
No Regrets
I bought my Accord EX with 35,000 miles on it from a dealer. Never have I ever second guessed this decision. It was like I bought a new car. I drive 150 miles a day to and from work, and this is the prefect car for anyone who is looking for a car that is sporty (I got the 5-Speed) and comfortible. This Accord is as comfortible on the highway as it is on the backroads. The engine does not scream at all at high speeds, it just provides a great ride, and good gas mileage for it's class. I plan to keep this car as long as I can becuase I have yet to see or hear of anything better out there. You will not regret buying this car.

By Damn good car on October 20 @ 11:00 am
It is all that
You can't find a more reliable sedan. This is my 2nd Accord. It's quick, there's no need to pay extra for a V6. After 50K miles, it's done everything well, almost too well, boring even. But hey, you want to get where you're going or no? I would recommend this car NEW to anyone. I would imagine the used Accord is a good bet also. My sister has a 94 Accord EX, 170,000 mi and has only basic maintenance, no major repairs. Get the leather, it's probably easier to clean. You are going to have this car for a long time.

By Florida Hockey Fan on January 6 @ 11:00 am
Couldn't have done better
For anyone looking for a sporty, stylish, comfortable, affordable, reliable car, this is the one for you. It's got it all. After driving the 4- dr. Accords I came upon the coupe and was hooked. This car is in immaculate shape, the engine purrs like a kitten, and has been a joy to drive. Hugs the road, feels like it's got some weight behind it without feeling sluggish. My friends and family keep going back to Honda and now I understand why.

By phanieg on May 24 @ 11:00 am
I love my new car!
I have owned my car (that I purchased from my father, its original owner)for two weeks. I was lucky in that it was in great condition with only 26400 miles! I love how it handles the road and makes driving fun.

By yikes on July 23 @ 11:00 am
Bearing Down
Overall results are good except for the alternater that went at 42ooo miles- I was told it was a Delco part and that they were having problems with them. I am also having problems with rear wheel bearings. Both sides went bad at about 39000 miles and were replaced by Honda, who told me I would not have any future problems. Eleven months later and less than 12000 miles the right rear was again replaced and I can start to hear the left rear making noice. Any one else having these problems?

By David Dufour on April 18 @ 11:00 am
Do not believe what you read
In short this car has been completly rebuilt (V-Tec system, ABS system, brakes 2X, power sun roof motor, fan motor, leaks in the trunk) by honda and they have simply been the worse company to deal with. The transmission is now gone, but they refuse to warranty it. I have written letters to Honda with no response. All I can say is NEVER AGAIN. I have owned 7 Honda's and 3 Acura's. I will not make this mistake again.

By Dan258 on November 3 @ 11:00 am
Get In-Turn Key-Drive
Bought the 1999 LX 4dr just over 4 years ago. I fill it will gas, do the oil changes, tire rotation and other planned maintenance. In a nutshell, I get in the car, turn the key, and drive. No problems, no worries, nothing. Very reliable. Great car.

By 99 user on March 3 @ 11:00 am
OK Car
I bought this car used with 20k miles. it now has 95k miles and I am still happy with the car. Outside of normal maintenance and replacement of normal wear and tear items, things have been ok.

By Young Guy on May 20 @ 11:00 am
A Keeper for sure
It can cruise around town windows down, sunroof open, music blaring, and everyone looks, or you can fly past whoever on the highway with ease. It has Luxury, style, class, reliability, and power. What else can you ask for?

By nselvera on March 29 @ 11:00 am
Accord Coupe
It's been a great car to have, it rides smooth and feels very well built. It's a great car for the younger crown like myself, there are tons of ways to customize the car any way you want. I threw on a set of 17 inch wheels with low profile tires and it makes it look even more aggressive. overall it's been a great car to own, easy maintenance, nice quality, and great style makes this car a winner.

By sjmom on September 19 @ 11:00 am
I'd do it again
This was a great car for us. We never had any problems with it. We are looking for a larger vehicle otherwise we'd buy another Honda Accord.

By Brownt1 on January 17 @ 11:00 am
1999 Honda
While styling has never been a strong suit for Honda, I still like the looks of my 99 Accord. The spacious interior is a plus. The V6 engine is very smooth and delivers serious acceleration when you need it. The variable timing feature however causes a brief pause when you go for the gas. This has been annoying at times, but the overall performance of the engine and transmission make up for this feature. Mechanical issues have been diminimus. The car responds well to periodic maintenance. One mechanic noted at the 33,000 mile oil change that the engine looked barely broken in (a high compliment).

By J Farmer on October 13 @ 11:00 am
Overall a Great Car
I couldn't ask for more. Fairly inexpensive,roomy,dependable and a fantasticly well designed 4 cyl engine. It can haul five people comfortably, reach highway speeds with ease (great for merging) and cruise at 90 mph (with yet more available power) all day long. Its been a pleasure to own as it just plain WORKS as a car should and not cost a fortune. 102K,1 set of tires, front brake pads...nothing else...SWEET!

By One Acrd on December 2 @ 3:00 am
I Love My Accord
It handles great, it's a sporty car with plenty of style. With the recommended maintenace I plan to have my Accord for a very long time. I love to clean it up and cruise. When you drive an Accord heads will turn.

By Billryan1111 on November 15 @ 3:00 am
Bill's 99 Honda Accord Review
Other than a new set of tires, changing the oil and adding gasoline to the tank, this car is the most reliable I've owned. Always starts - never fails.

By Ram Chand Nair on June 1 @ 3:00 am
My Best Car Ever For Me
You feel as if you are driving an expensive car but you know it is affordsble.Has god resale value and engine runs smooth and good road handling quality well surpass other car i have driven; its a pleasure to drive with an outstanding marque.

By ace1 on August 18 @ 3:00 am
Not so good
This car has horrible brakes. Third set of pads in 65,000 miles. Soft pedal. Mater cyclinder replaced twice. Still soft. Electrical system with lots of problems. Bought this car because of Honda reputation. This will be my last Honda.

By gdwriter on April 17 @ 3:00 am
5 Years Later — Still love it
Five years after I bought it, I still love this car— and plan to drive it as long as it lasts. That could be a while. Honda builds amazing engines; even with the 4-cylinder, it has plenty of get-up-and go—love it when the V-TEC kicks in over 4,000 RPM. It's comfortable, capable, and completely reliable. I've only had to do regular maintenance—not a single repair. Plus it's sleek and handsome. Best car I've ever owned.

By mdwitty on February 23 @ 3:00 am
Tough to beat
I have had this car for 5 years with no problems. Compared to a camry, it runs a little loud, but it looks a lot better!!

Unhappy Honda Owner
I have driven it 63000 miles and I hate the car. The seat is uncomfortable and the emergency brake jabs into my leg. The cabin is noisy and you feel every bump in the road. The accelleration is slow. The car gets only 24mpg hwy. The ignition has been replaced twice. The car stalls nearly everytime I start it and the dealer cant fix it. The visor broke so it slides freely when I brake hard or turn. The cupholder is too large and un-adjustable. The power windows jam. I have owned an Escort, a Sentra, a Protege and a Regal, and each of them was better than this Accord.

Transmission FAILS Honda VERY aware
After 59,000 miles and every scheduled maintenance done,my car is labeled "unsafe to drive" by Honda dealer! Admits that 2000 and 2001 have a problem and after much chat "some" 1999! I know 4 people just in my town with the exact same problem! NEW transmission needed after less than 60,000 miles! My engine light didn't come on until 2 miles before the transmission was deemed unsafe...what if I had been on a highway going 55? DANGEROUS CAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Almost the best car in the world
Since i bought this car i drove from New York to Seattle to S.Francisco and all around America. I neeeeever had any problems with this car. One problem i had was Check engine, but car is still perfect. that is my 3d car and that is the best car i ever had.

All-Around Awesome Automible
I must conclude that this automobile is the most incredible thing I've ever driven. It is fun to drive, quite quick, and yet- because of the 4- is incredibly economic on feul. I would recommend this vehicle to anybody who enjoys a fun, fast, exciting ride.

By calceste on May 1 @ 3:00 am
Still The best
I have owned several Honda since 1986, The Accord have been the most complete trouble free car I ever had. I purchased from original owner with 40K miles, only have put a new set of tires, drives great, super safe handling, impressive response on acceleration for a 4 cilinder, daily driving is very confortable and its simplistic with contemporary stily makes this one one of the best car on the road for the value.

By Randman on October 4 @ 3:00 am
Keeps on tickin'!
Celebrating my 5 year anniversary with my Accord and for the most part have been extremely happy. The car is incredibly reliable. Other than a new set of brakes and tires, all I've had to do is change the oil and filter. It is fun to drive, easy to maintain and holds four adults comfortably. The interior, in particular, has held up very well, no cracking leather seats like my previous Acura Legend.

By boundsn on October 4 @ 3:00 am
Another Great Honda
Great car. Seems like it'll run forever. Very confident suspension. Comfy on long rides. Built for the interstate. I travel across country a lot, and this car has never let me down.

By Dustin Ricke on October 29 @ 3:00 am
This Cars Awesome
This car is a fun car. It has a great V6 v-tec engine. And the car has a great style. I suggest this car to anyone.

By notsoslimshady on July 6 @ 11:00 am
Good choice for the money
This car has been very reliable. We've put on a lot of miles, and not only is it great on gas, but other than basic oil changes, nothing has been replaced on it or has been broken....65k and still going strong

By DR on November 4 @ 11:00 am
Hondas Forever
We purchased this vehicle when it was 2 years old, with 30,000 miles on it. Right now, we have 60+k miles on it and not a single problem with it. I begin to wonder if the extended warranty (7yr/100kmiles) was a waste of money? We had German cars but this one is by far more luxurious for the price. Also I feel safer driving Honda than VW or BMW.

By accord lover on April 27 @ 11:00 am
What can you complain about?
I love this car. It is a well-built Honda. This car is fun to drive. The only problem is the gas mileage. The car is reliable and fun to drive. It has a good engine. 200 hp is not weak. The car is light and quick. It is a smooth and comfortable ride.

By DMITRY on January 21 @ 11:00 am
Great car.I THINK IT'S FAST AND POWERFULL ENOUGH!!!! Seems like it'll run forever. Very confident suspension. Comfy on long rides.NO MECHANICAL PROBLEMS AT ALL!!!!!

By genxcp on February 15 @ 11:00 am
Just let go of our 99 Accord EX V6 black/black coupe for an 04 black/black Acuras TSX. I can only hope that the Acura now lives up to the departed Accord. The Accord was a blast! Always got looks, always delivered smooth and fast performance, never any troubles, etc. It hasn't travelled far, we sold it to a family member, so I'm sure we will see it for at least several more years.

By BruceF on October 31 @ 11:00 am
Wouldn't drive anything but a Honda
I really do love this car! The styling still looks current, and it's fun to drive. It gets great gas mileage, and it has plenty of room for me and four friends. It is a great car for my commute back and forth to college. It provides the functionality of a sedan with the sportiness of a coupe. I've never had a serious problem with it other than the brake switch going out-- the brakes still worked, but the taillights didn't come on. It was repaired under warranty. Other than that, it has not given me a single problem. I'll drive it till the wheels fall off.

By mommiemae on April 23 @ 11:00 am
Love My Honda
This care has been zero maintenance (except for routine maintenance which I have performed according to schedule.) It has certainly turned me into a Honda owner.

By KAH on April 30 @ 11:00 am
I love it but beware
I absolutely love this car. Only problem is that I have been experiencing transmission problems since about 2.5 years ago, but it was just minor (or so I thought) rough shifting. I took it in and was told that everything looked ok. Just this past weekend the transmission failed on me at 91K. After doing research I found out that this is a known issue and a recall has been issued for the 2000-2001 models. http://www.auto.com/industry/iwirg21_20020921.htm. I am trying to get the dealership to take care of it. Wish me luck.

By loni on December 28 @ 11:00 am
Honda Accord 2dr EX V6 im lovin it
this has been a very reliable car, it has lots of power but great on gas

By aposak on June 2 @ 11:00 am
A previous Accord owner, I am highly disappointed by this car. The interior is thoughtfully laid out and very nice. The styling is alright. The performance does not meet my expectations at all. I expected better than 20 mpg (my previous 4-cyl Accord averaged 31). The transmission is terrible! Previous owner had it replaced, but still doesn't shift well at all. This is my first Honda automatic, and my last for sure. I'll either go with a manual 4- cyl or look at a different brand.

By HondaBlows on January 23 @ 11:00 am
Severe Transmission Problems
Transmission on this car is defective (same transmission used in 98-01 models). Apparently Honda doesn't care about 98-99 owners b/c the extended warranty on their junk transmissions only covers 00-01 models. People should know they are not standing by their product and causing far too many owners a great deal of hardship by forcing them to replace the faulty transmissions at their own expense. Do not buy this car thinking you are getting "legendary" Honda quality. That is BS. I guess I should at least thank them for converting me into a Toyota customer (even Chevy Cavalier is looking good compared to this thing).

By ZippyZaZa on December 18 @ 11:00 am
Nice but do your research
I am a college student and up to this point the car has worked great for me. But transmission just started acting up and I am having it rebuilt right now, which will leave me practically destitute. Never expected this from a Honda, which is why I saved up to buy it in the first place. What a mistake! Honda America does not even respond to my letters or return my calls for assistance. Don't know why only '00-'01 models get extended powertrain warranty when it is the same transmission in '98- '99 models. Apparently I'll never know anyway since they won't even acknowledge me. This will certainly be my last Honda.

By Adrian Villanueva on May 23 @ 11:00 am
Got more then i paid for
Awesome car. You get more then you could ever pay for. The most reliable car I Have ever had. It does not sacrifice anything. Put it to you this way I will never buy anything but a honda

By AtlantaGuy on May 30 @ 11:00 am
Honda Magic
This is the best car ever. We love it and people always comment on it. It's a head turner and fun to drive. This is the 7th Honda we've bought in our car buying career. We just bought an '88 Civic (#8) with 260,000 miles with no fear for our college son. My '90 Accord has more than 300,000 miles and is still running strong. We LOVE Hondas!

By LovesHerAccord on October 16 @ 11:00 am
I bought my 99 Accord LX in March with 81k miles. In 7 months, I have added 14k to that and don't regret it one bit. Its been more than reliable. This is my second Honda and I'm sure to have a third. Other than changing the oil and gassing it up, there's nothing else that needs to be done. I wish I could have happened on the EX model when I found this one, just for extra bells and whistles, but I'm happy with what I've got. The gas mileage is awesome, too. I did a lot of traveling shortly after purchasing it and it was affordable. Everything has been affordable and they've got great resale value. The dealer trade-in value is more now than I paid for mine back in March! I love my honda!

By Ysette on April 8 @ 10:40 am
Great but too large
I bought this car used after my grandfather died. I would have never chosen a car this large, but in whole I am quite pleased with it. It is very well- built. Everything is solid and it rides well. It gives the driven a firm feel for the road which is important. The leather seats, while too large for me, are well-supporting and easily adjustable. The five-speed transmission shifts smoothly and offers a lot of fun acceleration. The air conditioning works well and doesn't draw too much power from the engine. The fuel economy, while not that of a Civic, is very respectible (~30 mi/gal for my driving). The especially enjoy the sunroof which is automatic.

By So Cal accord on March 13 @ 7:56 pm
this car is magnificent. it is fun to drive and it is quick. there are no signs of bad craftsmanship in a honda. this car easily shows how well hondas can be.

By Dene on November 19 @ 11:50 pm
Honda Accord- Good Buy
Good engine power: "a lot of get up & go"; classy interior; excellent gas mileage; nice size for traveling (room enough for 5 to travel); there have been a couple recalls i.e. driver seat adjusters; passenger side door lock has been occasionally not working with the power locks (must lock/unlock it manually); well-built car, the body of the car held up well in a fairly bad wreck; overall, I love the car and have very few complaints= excellent buy!

By Gary King on June 9 @ 11:53 pm
What a blessing !!!
We are the original owners of this car. Our Accord has over 180,000 miles on it. I have changed the oil every 5000 miles and done all other normal maintenance myself. We took it into the dealership to have the timing belt replaced as spec. by Honda. Other than that this car has never needed anything but gas and someone in the drivers seat. This has been the most amazing vehicle. I agree with one of the other reviewers when they said "they got more than they paid for." Honda has made a believer out of me.

By barra321 on April 29 @ 9:33 am
Great Car
I have had my Accord for several months now. I had a '87 w/ 190k miles Civic before. Honda is hands down the best car made today. Just keep up with the REQUIRED maintenence and you'll love this car for years and years.

By geo will on June 9 @ 9:16 am
99 Honda civic by bill
Great car. Exhaust and brakes needed repair sooner than expected. Not the greatest vehicle for winter driving.

By Topgun on January 19 @ 7:50 pm
1999 Accord EX
Love the styling of the two door EX coupe but will never buy a two door again. Getting into the back seat is a chore. Transmission started acting up at 120k at that point the car was traded. Brakes on this car are total junk. The rotors warp which leads to vibration under braking. Interior quality is marginal. Overall, I enjoy driving the car and have never regretted getting the 4-cylinder engine.

By p g on November 24 @ 9:50 am
great reliable suprisingly quiet car
this car has been very reliable. timing belt was the only major service done since 60K miles. It is quiet and nice with the right tires on it.

By ssright on December 16 @ 5:30 pm
I love Honda. This car is my third Honda. This car is pretty sharp looking, but it fails in performance and reliability. I have the 4-cyl and it is pretty slow in 1st and 2nd gears, a little better after 2nd, but not much. Auto Transmission WILL go out before 125,000 miles, no question. Car currently has 120k on it right now and i've rebuilt the transmission and when that didnt' work, put in a new one. Even the new Transmission shifts a little hard. Lastly, this may be an isolated incident, but my non-power seats have broken 3 times and won't lock into place, so the pass. just slides forward and backward while i drive. Over all nice car, Not as reliable as i'd hoped.

By Sam on April 15 @ 1:03 am
Great car!
Love my car, have had it now for 6 years. Only improvement I would make would be to increase space in the back seat!

By gyori on September 11 @ 11:33 am
Reliable Car
I was looking to buy a reliable car. I did my research and the Accord seemed like a good bet. I was right. So far, the only problem I've had is the alternator went bad. I change the oil every 3K miles and the car performs well. The leather interior is very comfortable. The auto temp air conditioner is great and very cold. Unlike, most cars I've had, this car hasn't had the "little" problems (interior falling apart) that come with time. Everything is where it's supposed to be. The handling could be better, but it is a family sedan after all. Overall, I'm very happy with the car.

By MRV on June 26 @ 1:30 pm
Driving Ms. Honda
I bought my '99 Accord EX 5-speed new and have changed the oil every 3K miles and kept up with other routine maintenance. When I did my maintenance I only used Honda parts and found everthing to last tremendously longer than the OEMs. Second set of front brakes lasted 70K, back 77K. This was my second Accord...some thief liked my '96. This car is worth every penny I and the insurance company paid...I currently have nearly 100K miles and I still get awesome gas mileage...29 city/36 highway...better than the guesstimate from Honda. Oh yea...every once in a while I think about getting rid of it but then I get in it and am reminded why I love it. And at $3.00/gallon, the mileage can't be beat

By Cynthia on August 20 @ 2:50 am
Keep shopping
I bought a 99 Honda Accord EX V6 Engine, three months ago. When I bought the car it had 64,000 miles. Less than 2 months later the transmission went on me...what a headache when you are 200 miles from home. There has also been several recalls on the vehicles ignition switch. Even after having the ignition completely replaced, my key would get stuck in the ignition...another headache. I brought it back to the dealership 4x for the same problem. Finally, or so I hope, they have pin-pointed that when the tranny was replaced, the gear shifter was not aligned properly (???) which caused the key to get stuck. Let's see what happens. In any event, I am frustrated with all the problems I have.

By Greg on May 8 @ 5:03 am
I have the scoop on Accord vs. Camry
I have purchased 3 new 4cyl Accords (83,90,99) with absolutely no mechanical problems, we drove the 83 60k miles, the 90 134k miles and the 99 we drove 84k miles. But lets face it...Honda and Toyota know what they are doing. I have also bought 4 New Toyotas. Averaging 100k miles. Neither car is perfect but both do as advertise..reliable, clean lines, great value, good size,good resale, low maint. cost. The 99 accord is great but does have excessive road noise (Camry's are significantly quieter). The 4cyl Accord has plenty of power...I like to zip around and cruise at 75-80mph on I- 5. Anyone that says they need more power must have the thing loaded down and going straight up a steep hill.

By Dan S. in MI on June 14 @ 6:23 pm
Buy the 4 cylinder / Manual!!!!!
I purchased this car in '01 (it's now 06) and I am very happy with the value. I have experienced no powertrain issues, as are common with automatic transmission models. I average 32 MPG on highway. 4-cylinder has plenty of spunk. The ride leaves a bit to be desired. Engine noise noticeable - air noise noticeable - not as smooth as my 16 YEAR OLD Lexus LS 400. Very easy for my local $40/hr mechanic to work on - or if I'm feeling brave I have tackled a few issues. Plenty of room in engine compartment to manuver. BUY THE 4 CYL!!!

By chellie88 on February 8 @ 6:23 pm
Old Faithful
This car was my first new car purchase and after six years I am still pleased. I have been grateful as I look back and realize I never spent over $500 for any repairs. There is scheduled maintenance to keep up with but I didn't do all of them and am still blessed with a good performing vehicle.

By BabyGirl on December 26 @ 11:50 pm
I Love Honda
i bought my car in April of 2004 with 26,000 miles on it and it is still running strong with 46,000 miles on it. had no major problems yet. i love the 200 hp and sleek design but and i love the Huge trunk you can put anything in there!! all in all it is a perfect car AND I WILL ALWAYS BUY A HONDA

By twazthere on April 18 @ 12:46 pm
Beautiful ride
The last car I had was a 1996 Honda Accord LX sedan. I loved that car... unfortunately a guy pulling out of a parking lot in a truck didnt share that same love. To make a long story short, I wound up with this 1999 Honda Accord EX-L. It performs very well with a lot of peppiness. I get about 30-35 mpg on the highway and 20-25 mpg in town. The car is comfortable to drive in and is very spacious. The bottomline is that you cant beat a Honda for value, performance, and integrity.

By Josh Rules on December 8 @ 7:23 pm
Decent Car
I have had my Accord for a year and a half now. I bought it with 80,000 miles on it and have since added 20,000. It hasn't had any serious problems. The brake lines and gas lines rusted all the way through. That was about $150. The Transmission is kind of rough when you first start it, but after 5 min. it is fine.

By Linda L on April 22 @ 11:20 am
My Honda Accord LX
Our Honda Accord has been very reliable. In the 6 years we have owned it we have only had to make the required maintenance, plus tires and windshield wipers. It has 120,000 miles on it and still going strong. It still looks good too. A/C, heat and power windows are still in good shape as well. The only problem I have is that the cassette player sometimes does not play. Other times it does. We bought a Honda Civic as our second car because our Honda Accord was so reliable. Our next new car will be a Honda Accord too!

By Lindsay on December 26 @ 4:50 pm
I love my Honda
I bought my Honda used with 65000 miles on it and it is now up to 103000 but it just keeps going! This car still feels like it is brand new. I haven't had any problems with my car and with gas prices the way they are I am nothing but totally convinced that this is the right car for me. I used to be embarassed that it was such a generic car and everybody has one, but the maintenance has been very easy and the parts I've had to install have been nothing but easy to do!

By Dan on March 7 @ 11:10 am
Awesome Car
I've put 3000 miles on my 99 Accord ex 5 speed. I've filled it up probably 5 times. Get's great gas mileage. I usually take first gear all the way to 6K RPM, and I still get around 25 MPG in the city. If your planning on buying an Accord, go with the 5 speed manual. A manual is so much more fun to drive. Car is pretty quick off the line too for a 4 cylinder. The only problem I'm having right now is the timing belt. I hear a constant ticking in my engine. No major problems though. Trunk is the biggest I've ever seen. This car was def worth the MSRP of $23000 back in 99. Hondas last forever

By cer on July 18 @ 9:40 am
Japan built accords last longer!
i bought my accord used, the ulev edition, which is built in japan. the transmission is only now, at 199,000 miles, is starting to slip a little, mostly due to old tranny fluid. american built hondas are the ones that are giving the company a bad rap. you can't build a japanese product outside of japan, it just won't work. won't buy another honda because they majority are built in the u.s. now, but will never rule out buying a used one after researching where the car was built.

By Stacy on April 30 @ 6:53 pm
Great Car
We have really enjoyed our reliable Honda. We have had a few minor electrical problems, like dash lights burning out, but, otherwise it has been great.

By Larry on November 13 @ 9:23 am
Honda did it right
The vehicle is fun to drive, very stylish, roomy and confortable. It has excellent view from all sides. Good mileage on the open road. Very spacious inside, and the trunk is large enough to handle large suitcases. Only one computer chip problem in nearly eight years, that the dealer was able to fix.

By amchev on November 13 @ 10:26 am
Unbeatable reliability
I bought this car new in January of 1999. In that time I've only done scheduled maintenance except for replacing the battery. 100% reliable transportation, everything works just like it did the day I drove it off the lot. It's not the most powerful or sporty car on the road and the newer models get better fuel economy but Honda has proven to me that they build reliable vehicles.

By CJ on October 26 @ 12:20 am
Honda outperforms similar Japanese Maker
I have owned a model year Nissan Altima, a Toyota Camry V6 and the Honda Accord. While I thought the Camry would be my favorite (the Altima was a disaster and traded within one year) after 4 years and 107,000 miles it was in need of serious mechanical attention and was traded. The Accord, however has 137,000 miles and has been the most reliable and required the least maintenance. In fact, it's only been in the shop twice over these past 8 years, once for ignition and once for clutch (just recently).

By Jeff on September 28 @ 9:23 am
One of the world's most reliable cars
1999 4i 5MT Accord LX manufactured in Japan (Saitama, IIRC). The only thing that's broken in 9 years is the windshield. It's for all intents as- new, and gets 32ish mpg in mixed driving, which makes it tough to trade in for something "better". As a used vehicle, a well-maintained Accord is about as good as it gets.

By Robert on January 19 @ 2:13 am
Still purring!
Well, now what a surprise the ole-girl has 150k on her and looks and drives like new. Do what the maintenace schedule says use only Honda parts! This car has been a delight to me and my wife now for eight years! No mechanical failures only one slightly costly driver side door mechanism hickup. A little pin broke and locked the door permanently. It was real interesting taking the door panel off and cutting the locking mechanism out with a dremel. Total fluke nobodies fault. 32 gpm highway which is most of our driving. Pushes snow with quality snow tires. Love stick shift, changed out the cloth for leather heated for $1400, would do it again. Going to drive her till she dies!

By Honda99 on February 24 @ 2:43 pm
Research Honda's...Transmission problem
I bought the vehicle at 84,000 and thought that Honda goes forever. Did regular service at 85,000. Water pump, timing belt, drive belts, a/c belts, spark plugs, transmission fluid, pretty much a good tune up. But to my surprise I noticed and was told by my mech. that I should have researched before buying this accord as it has manufacturing problems with Transmission. It's not even 100K and the transmission is slipping. When you take off, it hesitates from gear 1 to 2. And when you stop, it gives a little jerk before stopping. This is known issue with Honda (98-02). So, research before you buy it.

By Linda on January 2 @ 12:43 pm
A Cracked Engine Head at 107,000 Miles!
I absolutely love(d) my Accord EX 4 dr. sedan.It was the funnest car I ever drove! It cornered great,it was peppy, reliable. I had the recommended timing belt maintenance done at 105,000 miles, also an oxygen sensor blew then too. Spent $1,000 on that preventive maintenance, only to have my engine head crack at 107,000 miles! I had no warning, no difference driving, but oil and antifreeze were mixing and the liquid looked like mud!! The pressure blew and popped a radiator hose just 4 months later. Cracked engine &I need a used engine put in for $2750, NOT! Needless to say, I am very disappointed and plan to write Honda to demand an answer as to why this would happen on their #1 product-cars

By Paul on December 6 @ 10:53 am
1999 Honda Accord EX- Do not buy
I recently purchased a 1999 Honda Accord EX under the belief that Hondas were reliable. The car has 83K miles and the transmission slips and oil is leaking into the coolant. I will probably have to replace the engine and transmission. I have contacted Honda who are unwilling to help out. This is my third and last Honda. I mention this issue to others so they do not go through a similar experience.

By Corey In ATL on April 17 @ 4:20 pm
In my opinion - The best car ever built.
I have had the car a total of 10 years this fall. I have had the brakes replaced 2 times since I bought the car, I've had the timing belt changed on its scheduled 125,000 mile maintenance, the alternator had to be replaced at 40,000 because of the faulty manufacturer (Honda did not warranty this part.). I have had a lot of worry free driving for many years. I am in the market for a new car but i will be keeping my Honda for as long as it has wheels. I drive this vehicle 500+ miles to Arkansas from Georgia every other month and have felt very confident that I will arrive safely in a car with over 150,000 miles and counting. I am very pleased with this car.

By Tim on February 1 @ 2:16 pm
My '99 Accord V6 Coupe
My family has owned many Hondas, all of which have been very low maintaining vehicles, except for a big problem in my '99 transmission. The car used to be my moms. She had to replace the tranny at just below 100,000. Very disappointing coming from Honda, one of the most reliable manufacturers out there and way above German and American made cars. Now at almost 170,000 miles and up to that I've been noticing the transmission problems again, and just today it went totally out of gear, and then back in after I jabbed the gas a few times about three seconds later. Not been a fun experience driving in fear with this car... possible my driving habits don't help it either.

By AJ Foster on April 6 @ 4:30 pm
Don't Believe the Hype!
I purchased my 2nd accord over 3 years ago with 90k miles on it. My first '92 accord had nearly 200k and the only problem was w/ the cruise control and a rough transmission. My '99 has a faulty transmission that's slipping as well, the lights in my dash dim periodically, cruise control doesn't work AT ALL, the auto locks in my rear doors are now manual, I need new ball joints, i had to purchase an extended warranty for my battery b/c it continuously dies. I must admit that as I am approaching 175k, that car still starts without a glitch, but the "quality" that Honda is expected to have mastered is only hype. This is the 4th Honda my family has had, and the 4th one with transmission issues.

By Bob Kilmon on May 4 @ 2:46 pm
1999 Honda Accord
I've driven this car for 8 years now, and I'm gonna trade in for a Lexus. Overall, I think this is a pretty reliable car except for the fact that most Accords I've see have a transmission problem. However, the design is really nice, and fuel economy is great, but I would recommend researching Honda's transmission problems (98-03) before buying this car. We've had our transmission fixed twice, which cost 7k, so we decided to trade in.

By Nathan on September 17 @ 8:33 pm
Excellent car until transmission goes
We have loved this car-, early perfect reliability and fine performance. Could be more comfortable, but that was a small price to pay for perfect performance over 8 years. The transmission is gone, though, and the timing belt needs to be replaced. The complete repair/maintenance bill is going to run around 3000 or more. The car has basically lost all its value in 9 years. So the value could be better.

By Krishna Prasad on May 8 @ 8:33 am
99 Accord LX V6
I bought my Accord in 99. I have clocked 113K so far. While the car has generally been low maintenance, the transmission had to be replaced at 102K. After reading the comments, looks like transmission has been a problem on 99-03 edition. And now the rack and pinion assembly needs to be replaced. Has anybody faced this problem? Brake rotors and power steering pump were replaced too. I guess after 100K, there is no escaping from frequent maintenance expenses. But the engine and performance is still impressive. I do 60 miles round trip daily and the drive is very comfortable with the V6 notwithstanding the $4 gas. I hope to get it to at least 125K without much expense

Ain't No BMW
This car was delivered new in July 1999. After 9 years and 139,000 miles it has proved to be reliable to get us from point A to point B consistently, but over that time, the cruise control conked out and she leaks oil (About a quart a fill up) despite diligent maintenance. The body has a bit of rust and many nasty door dings. Other than that, no major issues. Brakes and timing belt have already been replaced but tranny has showed no issues. It is used as a the car to get us to the city, airports or anyplace we would be uncomfortable taking our precious roadster. All in all, it hasn't been the "bulletproof" transportation that it was supposed to be, but it has never left us stranded.

It's Alive!!!
I bought this car new nearly ten years ago. It's my third Honda and by far the one I've owned for the longest. This car is a rock! I have over 215,000 miles on it and it still runs fantastic. The body and interior are in great shape, very solid. I'm shooting for 300k miles before I consider buying a new one.

Nothing is perfect-Great basic vehicle
I have 175K on my 1999 Honda Accord. I am thinking of purchasing another car, but it would only be for fun. My car runs like a new car. I could drive to the moon and back with confidence. I did have to replace the transmission at 90K and the ball joints at 30K. However, Honda covered these expenses and were very apologetic to me. The dealer gave me a loaner car. Keep up the maintenance with an oil change every 3000 miles.

Great Car!
My parents purchased this vehicle new in August 1999, and it became mine in summer 2008, with 145K on the ticker. It now has 155K and has been dead reliable. Needed a clutch at 118K, ball joints and an ignition a year ago, and various wear items. Only non-wear items that have gone are the backlight for the clock, the left rear window switch in that door (still works from driver's door), and the green LED in the main cruise control switch. I'd buy another one in a heartbeat but will hold onto this one for a while, until I can afford a six-speed Acura TL in a few years.

185K and still going
Best build quality of any vehicle hands down. Change the oil every 5k and no problems. 1 timing belt at 100K, and new ac compressor. Just keeps going and going.

Beyond Reliability
I purchased the car in 2001 because my car died "literally" at the dealership. I am so glad I picked this car. It has been the best car I have ever owned. No problems. Change the oil, put gas in, & change the tires. That's all you need to do. I have never had any problems. It even takes the abuse of my wife's driving :).

By Al on January 11 @ 5:03 am
Most reliable car I've ever owned
Got this my car back in 2002 w/ 24,000 miles. Now it has over 80k and I'm amazed how reliable this car is. Aside from the required maintenance, the only problems I had is changing the light bulbs, squeaky shocks on the front driver, & annoying rattles in the trunk. That is it, I bought a 5spd so I have non of those trans problems. Thinking of getting a new car, but cant really part w/ my reliable Honda.

By Chris on December 16 @ 7:13 am
Overall a good car
I wanted Honda reliability but was a little disappointed, overall a very good car though. Two guys I worked with have 98's (the year this version was redesigned), while they have a lot more miles, I used that as a gauge of problems I could expect. Alternator and battery failed at only 35K miles ($700) which I thought was pretty bad and it needed brakes prematurely soon after that, but that's been about it - almost 10 years old, needs new motor mount but no other repair issues. It's powerful, fairly quiet, agile, excellent handling and braking. Gas mileage drops al lot if you go 70+ MPH. The clear coat finish on the wheels is wearing a little prematurely being in FL most its life.

Picked the right "Honda"
I purchased a 1999 Honda Accord EX Coupe V6 in Apr 09 with 184,786 miles on it. The CarFax was downloaded on the website. Went to check it out. The engine was in great shape not "DOGGED" like most. Belts and chain replaced. No Tranny work done. But I can expect it to happen with this model. So I just go purchase a good warranty packet no big deal. This Honda is a great car. A drivers car not a "RACE CAR" Stop crying and face the facts. Normal maintenance, wear and tear. You cannot beat it.

Honda quality
My 1999 accord quality and reliability is so bad that I am convinced Honda is misleading the customers on their claim on reliability. Through this review, I would like to point out a flaw, either in the design or the manufacturing process, of the 1999 model year Honda Accord engine. The cylinder #3 valve melted out and blew a hole in it while driving on the highway. The mileage on the car was only about 105K. Honda dealers, and Honda H.Q. refused to honor any claims since the mileage is over 80K.

By New Orleans on August 20 @ 9:23 am
Great for 8 years
I bought this car used with 15000 miles on it (basically new) - I have to say this was the best car purchase I made to this point - possibly because I had owned some lemons previously. Low maintenance, great highway performance. The V-tech engine is such a great feature - until the v-tech engine started having problems - and only a dealership could fix them. Started having tranny problems after the 8th year. I had it rebuilt and still had problems. Honda wanted between $3 & 4K to fix it - at the time it was only worth that much. Friend of mine is having tranny probs on her 2003 Accord so I am a little leery of them now. Am trading it for a Mazda 3 - we'll see how that goes.

By John on March 17 @ 8:43 pm
An Excellent Car if you don't Dog it
Bought this thing with around 45K miles on it in 2004 and drove it until some kid parked his Blazer in my trunk last week at 127K miles. Great car. Not the most fun car I've ever driven, but still not bad. No issues other than the cheap factory GM alternator had to be replaced at around 50K miles which I was expecting. No tranny issues. Driver's side leather seat started looking rough but not bad considering it was a 10 year old car. All in all no complaints other than the alternator and maybe a tighter, sportier suspension. Super reliable, what you can expect from a Honda.

By Dan on May 20 @ 3:16 pm
Great vehicle with few problems
I've had my Accord since the fall of 1999 and it has performed admirably over the years. 178000 miles and only a starter and alternator for replacements with regular tuneups. Still gets 30 MPG and the ride quality is great for a car of its time period. Really could use ABS living in Minnesota winters, but you can do without if you're a confident driver.

By Mike K. on August 20 @ 8:26 am
What a great car!!
I purchased my 1999 Honda 2Dr EX V6 new in April 99. I have 110,000 miles on this car and I must say that it is an excellent vehicle. I drive it daily and find it very enjoyable to drive. It has great performance and reliability and it is very comfortable on long drives. My overall average mileage is 23.5 miles per gallon. Which hasn't changed much since I bought the car. I plan on keeping this car for a very long time. I highly recommend it.

By hunter252 on April 12 @ 11:03 am
246,000 miles and still strong
We bought this car brand new with only 52 miles. The car has given us great service with just normal maintenance. The car is very reliable, and still drives almost 100 miles a day. The motor and transmission is still all original with no problems other than a stalling problem it just started having which looks to be just a cleaning of the throttle body,and idle control valve issue. I would recommend one of these cars to anybody, and plan to buy another one when this finally gives up. I think the odometer speaks for itself.

By Donna on April 8 @ 5:46 am
Best car
My Honda Accord LX has been one of if not the best car I've ever owned for it's reliability, handling (I love) and comfort.

By Kyle on April 11 @ 6:23 am
My First Car "Love It"
I love my Honda. Its my first car. i bought it used in 2008 and i haven't had any problems with it what so ever. The only thing wrong with it right now is the A/C but that's not really a big deal it just has to be recharged.other than that its been a great car for me and i wouldn't think twice of buying a brand new one.

By logan.baranowski on July 4 @ 1:36 pm
This is my first car ever! I love it. Has some transmission problems but it still drives, so no problems. It is 12 years old and I drove it 80 mph on the freeway and she got 33 mpg and that was with my bike rack. Bought from my dad's coworker. Got a great deal $5000 and it is still worth $4000 after two years. I recommend this to all.

My Second Honda and it want be my last
While I have this 1999 Honda accord today because my 94 Honda Accord was damaged pretty bad in a wreak. So far I love the car, I brought it for 2,800 as is. It didn't need any under the hood work just a paint job and a new hood.I was blessed. I drive back in forth from home to school in another city. My gas lasted forever, 20 dollars lasted me 6 days straight. But my shifter has been getting stuck in park and I have to pull it hard to shift to another gear but that is fine, no biggie got fixed. I love hondas and toyotas and I want changed to an American made car for nothing, because they only look good, but they don't last long at all compared to hondas and toyotas. Just do your research.LOL

By Harry on November 12 @ 3:00 am
What a car!
I bought this car with 100 miles on it. It just turned 30,000 miles, since I take public transit to work and garage it the rest of the time. It is in showroom condition - not one door ding or dent on it! Absolutely mint in and out. My 5-year warranty came and went without me taking advantage of it, as I know i paid for it upfront. It drives like new. The only complaint I have is that the acceleration from a stop till about 50 mph is not that great. Then again, that may be the norm for a 4-cylinder car, though it is a V-Tec engine. I intend to drive it for a long time or give it to one of my kids.

By mthurl on March 11 @ 4:25 pm
just keeps on going flawlessly
I purchased this car new in 99, and have had very very little problems with it since. It now has 212k miles and still drives pretty close to new. I live in New England and this car has gone through some of the worst winters you could imagine...ice, snow, road salt, pot holes, sub zero temperatures. It still has the origanal engine, tranny, struts, starter, alternator, exhaust and steering components. I believe if I had lived in the south I would not of had to replace much of anything at all (rust has had me replace the brake lines and fuel tank). Aside from that, the only repairs made were; a ball joint, tie rod, evap solenoid and vtec solenoid. Not bad for 12 years and a total of $200.00

By joe5hunter on June 23 @ 3:30 pm
Its a tank
I love this car its a tank it has taken abuse that any normal car would have crapped out and given up lol. I got this from my older brother who got it from my dad we have put 160,000 miles on this car and it runs!!!!! and runs good this thing could tell one hell of a story... I would recommend this car to anyone i love my honda it has never broken down or crapped out on me gas milage is great has original motor and trans we kept up on oil changes fluid changes and have had no problems normal wear and tear stuff but nothing major was replaced.

By usedlux on September 17 @ 4:25 pm
Been a great car
I owned this car for 10 years and loved it. The transmission started to act up, so I am moving on.

By sblennis1 on July 23 @ 5:01 am
My First Car
This was my first car, given to me by my step dad. I got it with about 180,000 miles on it. I drove it up until about 200,000. The transmission started acting up but we didnt think it was a big deal. Turned out the torque converter went bad and ruined the solenoids. Other than that issue, i had no other problems whatsoever. The car has been in an accident and all that happened was a bent hood and a scratched headlight cover. This car could take just about anything and i loved it. It was extremely comfortable to drive and had pretty good gas mileage. The motor ran strong and still does.

By momofboys3 on January 18 @ 4:56 pm
Wish They Still Made Them Like This!
In the summer of 2013, we purchased our '99 Honda Accord V6 Coupe for our teenage sons primarily to drive. I drive it every chance I get. The fit and finish of this car is superb: Sunroof, leather upholstery, nice radio, leather wrapped steering wheel, upholstered door panels, very roomy backseat. The condition of the interior and exterior is unbelievable....almost like new. The car has 82,000 miles on it and drives like a sports car to a Mom used to driving minivans and stodgy sedans. We plan to replace the timing belt soon and keep up on the maintenance. Really hope to get another 82,000 miles on this, maybe more......

By Sean on February 12 @ 4:06 pm
Ole reliable
My parents bought me my old accord coupe when I got my license. At the time she had 170 thousand miles on her and ,As it says in the title she's reliable. I was never left stranded while I owned the car. just keep the oil changed and she got me where ever I wanted to go. The interior was comfortable and easy to see out of. My Honda had the v6 engine In it and it was an amazing engine. It had the best pick up go. But one draw back which was a big one, it was very rough shifting from first to second gear. But other than that it ran smoothly. I had the vehicle for three years. I drove her in rain and shine. And she did great in Both conditions. Also I drove her through a few light snows and she had great traction for an old fwd car. Besides oil changes, repairs were very minimal. I had to replace a window motor and the motor mounts. July 2015 was the end on my three years with black Betty. That when she was passed to my brother, with 212000 on her at the time. thats when I got my 2010 Ford Explorer. I love my new car but at times I miss the sporty little Honda.

By Debbi on July 20 @ 12:48 pm
Replacement Vehicle
Haven't owned the car all that long but needed a replacement after an accident. The price was right and the maintenance was well recorded. I was impressed with the condition and how well it ran. I was concerned with the mileage but everyone and my research told me I would be fine. So far I'm very happy. I find it to be reliable, it's gone on road trips and gets great gas mileage. The tranny slips when cold but was also told that's a Honda thing, so u will be keeping an eye on it. For the year it was pretty fancy with extras back in its day. I am happy to be driving it around and feel really good about my purchase.

My '99 Accord EX - The car that won't quit!
I purchased my '99 Accord EX sedan 3 years ago for a second car. It had about 140k miles on it, and I figured I would keep it a couple of years to get me through a new job, etc. Well it now has 192k miles on it and runs and drives as good as the day I took it home! I have had the timing belt replaced, and installed new front struts. Other than that it has been simple oil changes and no worries. What a great car! It handles and rides beautifully, is comfortable and great on gas too. For the small amount I paid for my Accord I feel like I stole it. I don't even have the desire to get a newer car - that is how much I love my Accord!

By Randy M on August 5 @ 3:38 pm
Not a Politician, But I Reached a New Accord!
I took delivery of my Black Currant beauty in the Spring of 1999. It didn't take long to fall in love. The double wishbone suspension, coupled with a high-revving in-line four (which felt like it was hand-built by Swiss watchmakers), light weight and a responsive steering linkage made this car a ball to drive. The fact that it was reliable, durable, possessed an excellent degree of utility and didn't require a fortune to operate and maintain were just bonuses. Faced with its inevitable demise all these years later, it feels like losing a friend. True, the low-end torque wasn't the best and a parasitic amp draw was never properly diagnosed, but I am distraught at having to say goodbye to this car. It's style, the brilliantly laid out dash and the aforementioned high-revving four and excellent suspension turned long drives into sprints. I'm 6'3" and could sit straight up in the back seat. Such was the thoughtful engineering and design invested into this car by Honda. In its own quiet and sublime way, I feel it was one of the best cars ever built.

A BMW 750 in a Honda
This is the best car I have ever owned and driven. My dad purchased this car new in March of 1999 and still runs like we bought it new from the dealership. I happened to grow alongside by this car, and which it has been there for me. Now I am learning how to drive, this car has literally saved my life from stupid mistakes that beginning drivers make. While it has 150 horses paired to a 4-speed, this car is one heck of a car to drive-- fun, attractive, etc. I have no issues and no problems with this car other than regular maintenance. I would totally recommend this car to anyone that wants a stylish car and a car the literally wants to live every single day.

By Anthony on September 14 @ 3:59 pm
