I LOVE MY CAR!!!
I've had my EX V6 for about a month, and I absolutely love it. I also looked at the Camry Solara, and although the Solara feels roomier in the rear, it doesn't come standard with the same features as the EX V6. In the Honda, the interior was better, as well as the responsiveness you don't hear as much road noise. The only thing I DON'T like about the car is that it doesn't come in a manual transmission. Highly recommended.

Best Car Ever Made
The car is great and it's just what I wanted. The 4-cylinder feels like a V-6 and it's very quiet compared to the GM cars. I would definetly recommend anyone to buy a Honda Accord.

Stick with what works
Just purchased our second accord after our '91 DX had to be put to rest due to my conscious of not running over a cat. It was just shy of the 200k mark and would have gone way past that if not for the recent mishap. Although I have only 50 miles on the new accord LX V6 it already shows signs of a vehicle that will last us another 10 years. For the price you can't go wrong with this vehicle. For the price, go with the Accord.

The best car ever made
This is the best car! Everything about it is wonderful. Good resale value, reliability, and an all around gem.

By Jeri Elyse on July 20 @ 10:56 am
What's not to like???????????????!!!!!!!
I love my Honda Accord. This is my 3rd. Honda, what can I say? This car has it all. Styling, reliability, great gas mileage with the 5 speed, more than enough pick up and power, fun to drive and just plain terrific!

By Dan0723 on May 18 @ 8:03 pm
Hard to beat this car
This vehicle is excellent in every way. Great performance, excellent ride and handling for a family sedan. Super gas mileage - I average 24.5 MPG. Plenty of room for a family of 5. Excelent interior, features, and controlls.

By smokin on November 12 @ 2:06 am
Very Pleasant Purchase
I've had the car for about 3 months and put on about 3,000 miles, including one out-of-state trip. Car drives and handles very well, providing great comfort. The only disappointment is the mileage: about 20mpg vs the 26 that I had expected. Otherwise, I'm extremely satisfied with the car.

By kpthirdmate on March 3 @ 9:30 am
Great Car
I love my car... I guess if six cylinder came with a manual it would be a better car, but consideringthe whole package it is great. Besides, if I wanted a race car I would ahve gotten a different car

By jodokast on April 26 @ 1:43 am
Fast, inexpensive, and fun!
This Accord is the 4th I've owned in my life, in addition to my 99 CR-V. The coupe has a lot of room, front and rear, and the seats are very comfortable. The engine is very responsive and great accelerating at higher speeds for passing. The gas mileage is great for a V-6. Leave it to Honda to deliver a perfect coupe without depleting your finances.

Very nice Car

By Russ on August 7 @ 10:10 am
GREAT CAR, TOO BAD THE DEALER IS TRASH
Even though the 2003 model will be awesome,I went for the price incentive I got because i knew about the major model change this summer.It's a sedan...with lots of room for four adults,leather,even distribution of the HVAC,quality everything,quality everything,I don't have to worry about anything failing,and for a sedan...it's flat-out fast (quick and higher speed cruising).The only thing that sucks about the car is that I couldn't buy it from a Lexus dealership!

By oscar on March 22 @ 10:56 am
V6 Accord
This is an excellant riding vehicle. The cab rides quieter than previous models and I like that everything is in reach of the driver. This model also comes with the new TCS system. Some negatives are the sounds system, although the EX copmes with 6 speakers and the very nice factory radio there just does not seem to be enough power and sound. Additionally, the leather seats are rough and look synthetic.

By kurtna on July 27 @ 2:56 am
best all around
this is the best all around value for a sedan. No nickle and diming by dealership, car comes with everything you need.

By OMG! on January 19 @ 10:56 am
WOWZERS!
wow this car is great go out and get one before they all fly away!

By drewali on July 13 @ 7:50 pm
THE BEST
I OWN A 1998 AND LOVE IT SO MUCH THAT I CANNOT THINK OF ANY MAKE 2002 TO BUY THAT IS BETTER.THE VALUE,RESALE VALUE,QUALITY,RIDE,ERGONOMICS, GAS MILEAGE,HANDLING,COMFORT ARE SIMPLY PERFECT.IF YOU BUY THIS CAR YOU WILL LOVE IT AND NEVER BUY DOMESTIC AGAIN GUARANTEED!THIS CAR CAN GIVE ANY CAR IN ANY CLASS A MAJOR RUN FOR THE MONEY.THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ACCORD AND AMERICAN PRODUCTS IS NIGHT AND DAY.THE FEW DOLLARS PAID UP FRONT EQUATES TO LESS HEADACHES AND LESS OVERALL COST IN THE LONG RUN.

By GEORGE on August 10 @ 5:46 am
WOW
WOW

By honda fan on October 10 @ 9:13 pm
I'll sleep easy but.......
Smooth, honest drive but vanilla styling and not quite the Honda build quality I am used to. Excellent gas mileage but not as quiet as the new Camry.

By SteveS on December 31 @ 11:56 pm
It's not a car, it's a Honda
After 16 years driving Ford?Mercury products, and only ONE month in this car, I would hesitate to lease/purchase ANY other vehicle until this one has been test driven. Never have I had a more solid, quiet, responsive ride than I do from the Accord. Hills which required several downshifts from previous vehicles were no problem for the Accord - interstate driving is a true pleasure. Surrounded by leather and a luxurious sound system, one of our favorite things to do is take a drive !!

By juan on January 20 @ 6:26 am
This is a smart buy
This is a car that is relatively cheap has good quality and last long. I think is a great value for your money.

By M on November 9 @ 5:10 am
Wonderful car
First time Honda owner. Through all my research, reading and test driving. This car is hard to beat. My V6 runs silky smooth and quiet. It speaks softly but carries a big stick. Fit and finish both inside and out is above average. My major gripe is the sales personnel. I felt like a carcass among predators. The car sells itself; why do they act like vultures?

By dang tong on June 25 @ 5:33 am
Proud to own an Accord
Accord is an excellent value car. No doubt, it's the most reliable, dependable car and has great resell value. If you are looking to buy an Accord. Good choice. Go for it. Can't go wrong. Get the EX-V6 if you can. I must say I regret for not getting the EX-V6 as my wife's. The reason I picked up the LX-V6 because it's less $$ and it's in the lot. From my point of view and experience, the EX-V6 worths every extra penny and it's a more enjoinable car. If you decide to go with 4 cycl. model, get the SE for best bang for $$.

By WstCst on July 6 @ 9:53 am
You call this a car
I bought a Honda because people say they are great cars, are they ever wrong. The car feels very cheap and has to be taken into the shop every other week or so to fix some glitch. The interior quality is poor, not up to the standards of even the poorest domestic car. The gas milege, a measly 24 MPG quite frankly stinks. The price for this car was way to much for the car that you get. The pathetic engine can barely propel the car down the road, and the transmission has to down shift to even go around corners. Don't buy this vehicle

By Robert407 on August 18 @ 12:13 pm
Bullet proof reliability
A 5-speed that almost shift's itself. Smooth is the word. Handles well, but 16" performance tires should be an option.

By benimal on November 4 @ 4:03 pm
Great coupe
I've had this vehicle for about 2 weeks now. It's amazing. The only things it could use are a 5-spd tranny, and maybe a little more power. The ride is firm, but still comfortable. The seats could be a little more supportive, but are still good for holding you in the twisties. All in all, it's a pretty great car. A few more options/power and it could be exceptional!

By MOT George on May 11 @ 3:03 pm
First Honda
This is my first Honada purchase. What better to go with than the Honda Accord? I just recently traded in my 2001 Toyota 4-Runner (a little prier than I wanted). Got a great deal on an Accord.....got all the good stuff on it. Saw an earlier review saying the leather was rough and didn't look nice. I disagree. I think it is quite comfortable and looks nice. What can i say other than I love the car! I miss the power in my 4-Runner, but man it handles well. Very comfortable, loaded with features, great audio system, nice quality.

By bfargin on May 22 @ 3:00 am
Good Quality Vehicle
The leather is nice and supple, decent leg room but not perfect for tall guys like me 6'5". Decent stereo. Very nice steering wheel controls for the stereo and cruise control. Nice sized trunk for a small car. A couple fo things I would change, door opening width. Only opens to about 45 degrees so makes it difficult to get into and out of at times. Front seat needs to travel aft more. I wasn't too happy with Honda's decision not to contribute to any of the relief effort in NYC or DC. GM, Ford, DaimlerChrysler and a couple of others contributed but I read that Honda didn't raise a finger to help even after psoting some of their best sales months to date in the USA during 2001.

By TRACIE on November 12 @ 3:00 am
THE BLACK STALLION
THIS IS THE FIRST HONDA THAT I'M PURCHASING. I'VE HEARD A LOT (FROM PREVIOUS OWNERS) ABOUT HOW HONDA'S ARE GOOD CARS AND THEY DO NOT GIVE ALOT OF PROBLEMS. I THINK THESE CARS ARE VERY SHARP AND SPORTY.

By Farhan on August 8 @ 3:00 am
Best buy in the Market
its the best car i have had.

By AFB on January 29 @ 3:00 am
My Accord
I have had my Honda for 5 months now and it's been great except for 1 major issue. My gas milage. 90 percent of my driving is strictly highway and I have not gotten over 19.5 mpg. I even filled up on the highway and topped it off when i got off. I got 20.4 mpg. I have had it back to the dealer and was told nothing was wrong that the car has to break in. I've got 6000 miles and it should be broken in. Why then is the car advertised at 22 - 28 mpg

By DPVW on January 12 @ 3:00 am
Rattel, rattle, rattle
I love everything about this car, EXCEPT the rattles in: the stereo bracket, the passenger door molding, the rear passenger-side molding, the speaker covers, the driver-side dash, the right-hand vent molding, the sunroof hardware and the glove box latch. And no, I'm not unusually picky about these things: everybody who rides in it says something to me. I've also had bizzare noises from the rear brakes and the muffler heat shield. Only the latter two have been fixed - all the others are ignored by Honda mechanics, needless to say.

By HondaDrvr on January 12 @ 3:00 am
First Honda
I've had my Honda Accord for just over a month now, and what can I say about it, I LOVE it. This is my first Honda, I used to own a Chevy Cavalier which gave me lots of problems. So I decided to go with a Honda. I've got 6,000 miles on my car and it's only a month old! This car handles great on the highway, including the ability to shift the automatic into 3rd gear if you need that extra "get-up and go." I'm quite impressed with the pick up, since this is a family sedan. According to the owners manual, you can shift the gears in the automatic, as if it were a stick. I've done this a few times, from a traffic light and wow can this car go!

By smith999 on October 8 @ 3:00 am

Great car! Great Quality
Very good quality for this accord. Much better than some american competitor.

By moose on March 31 @ 3:00 am
Honda Accord. Great car with no problem
I have had my honda accord since July. I have put over 23,000.00 miles on it and thus far I have had no problems. I get 31 miles per gallon. It is easy to drive and to park. It is a great car. My prior car was a Dodge Intrepid. It was junk and gave me nothing but problems. I replaced every part on the engine and it continued to give me problems. Honday is the way to go.

By Mikey J on March 31 @ 3:00 am
Life is Hard Enough. Simplify!
The Honda Accord is one, if not the best built automobile on the road. It's reputation for quality and dependablity are undoubtably well known. They perform well, drive like a dream, with it's tight well designed suspension and they retain their resale value. Ever try trading in a Chrysler with 100K miles, and expect the dealership not to laugh at you because they are only going to give you 10 cents? Honda. It's just an awesome piece of work!

By mcd2000 on March 31 @ 3:00 am
much better handling than an altima
the altima no contest has more power (but crappy handling), but to match accord's standards, you would end up paying 28000 when you get an altima. plus it handles SO MUCH better than an altima, its engine is very responsive

By delrio on June 17 @ 3:00 am
Couldnt be happier
I bought the Value Package a week ago. The car is smooth and quiet. The engine is very responsive. I couldnt be happier with my purchase.

By chica on March 13 @ 3:00 am
PRACTICAL and SMART
I loved this cute little coup. This car was perfect! VTEC engine was very peppy...I was in a car accident last week where I was rear-ended at a stop light. The person that hit me was in a similar size car and was going about 35- 40 mph. The whole trunk area crushed in like it is supposed to. I walked away from the accident the other driver was taken via ambulance. The car is likely to be totaled but I think Honda's crush/crash zone safety features saved me from injury! Now I will probably get another Honda. But not at Landmark Honda... they were miserable to deal with.

By Tsmoov on September 3 @ 3:00 am
I Like This Car
The Accord has been known for its reliability over the course of many years. Prior to owning this new one, my parents owned an accord from 86-96 without any problems at all, which i took into consideration when i purchased my own. The build is tight and refined, the interior clean and smooth, and the acceleration and braking extremely responsive. The coupe is especially roomier than i expected it to be with its smooth and subtle leather. Very nice ride as well, which is also important...

By jaDay on May 30 @ 3:00 am
Great Car!!!
Very nice car, fun to drive, very responsive. And, of course, very reliable. It's a Honda...Need I say more?

By made a mistake on July 5 @ 11:00 am
I want my '99 Cavalier Z24 back!!!!!
IF you can afford to buy or lease another make, DO IT! I've had this Honda SE 2 door for 3 miserable weeks and will dump it as soon as I can. I thought I could be happy with it, after all, the lease payment was less than a 2002 Cavalier Sport Coupe, my first choice. I've since discovered saving money isn't always worth it. I hate making mistakes! 1) BAD gas mileage 2) Overly responsive and 'unfeeling' steering is terrifying at high speeds 3) Window buttons and cruise control buttons are in the wrong spot 4) Sunroof is reused from the 4 door and doesn't open all the way

By dtayl11 on July 5 @ 11:00 am
The one car everyone should own.
This isn't my first Honda Accord. I just purchased this new 02' Accord SE Coupe last night trading in my 97' SE coupe that I drove for the past 5 years and loved to death... I think the new 02' is more refinded then the last body style and with the luck I had with my 97' I wouldn't dream of owning any other type of automobile.

By Harris on December 26 @ 11:00 am
great car
this is a great car in everyway, to its handling, stlying, and comfort. it has great heavy reponsive steering, and great accleration for a 4 cyclinder. styling is great no imatations. it gives generous room in the front and the back. honda is also some-what cheap for example; no automactic windows and locks standard, and no ash tray for lighter, for a car almost $20k??!!

By Farhan on December 26 @ 11:00 am
MUST OWN an Accord SE in your lifetime.
Simply GREAT for the price as compared to competition.

By Chuckster on September 21 @ 11:00 am
Great Car, Great Value!!
I spent alomost 3 months doing research on vehicles with regards to reliabilty factors,safety issues,standard equipment,resale value and of course price. I can honestly say that a Honda is by far the best product in all 5 categories as compared to vehicles in the same class. The car drives and handles very well and is exceptionally smooth as well as quiet while driving at highway speeds. If your are thinking Accord, the SE model is the best choice for options without the EX price tag.

By Barney on March 13 @ 11:00 am
New Transmission at 8K
I always thought the Honda Accord was a reliable vehicle until I purchased my Accord with a V-6. Transmission started clunking at around 4K and the dealership told me this was normal. At 8K the transmission failed and Honda replaced it. Now after 1K with the new transmission it is making a clunking sound again every time I back up! The dealership is telling me this is normal again! I am going to unload this lemon before I need another new transmission. Will never buy a Honda again!

By Fred on November 20 @ 11:00 am
Best in class
As a commuter and "driver" this is an enjoyable car. Right combination of practicality, good gas mileage, 'fun factor,' resale value, and comfort. I thoroughly tested the Camry, Passat, and Altima. Camry is way too boring and ugly, Altima good but cheap interior, Passat probably the best but needs premium fuel and has less space.

By la_phuk on August 16 @ 11:00 am
Amazing!
I had never owned a Honda until March of 2002, and I am amazed every day with it. It handles beautifully, it is very comfortable, and it sure can take a hit. I had this brand new car for three weeks when a drunken kid rear- ended me at a red light. I was completely stopped, and he hit me at 40- 45 mph. His '90 Accord was totalled, but my bumper was just split open- not even smashed in. Not a bit of internal damage was done.

By rick on May 13 @ 11:00 am
A great car
Simply the best car I've ever owned. When I buy another car it will be an Accord.

By Roger Millnitz on February 6 @ 11:00 am
My sixth Accord
This is my sixth Accord. My experience with all of them has been very good, mainly because they're predictable. I haven't had any problems. This one, a V-6 EX with leather, is fun to drive and more comfortable than any I've had to this point, and my lease rate is great. I could buy a more expensive car, but why? I love the quality, comfort and the styling.

By JoeKewl on November 2 @ 11:00 am
Best Honda Ever
I think that this is he best car. It runs so smoothly and is very comfortable. It is the best car ever.

By BrentSki on November 2 @ 11:00 am
Glad to Dump the Jeep!
Had a Grand Cherokee for 3-years. It had horrible gas mileage, hard brake, and 40-mph wobble. Thank god for the Accord 2-door SE. Exterior Syling is great. Easy to drive, VTEC lives up to its name. Interior is comfortable and large for a coupe. Stereo is good for Honda. And back seat is surprisingly roomy. Overall great car- no suggestions!

By cvw4100 on January 19 @ 11:00 am
I am disappointed
The car idles rough and they said these idle rough and that other people have complained, the engine is very loud on take off after sitting for several hours and they said that is the way these are and other people have complained they are saying it is a valve noise. It rides very bumpy over even smooth roads. Steering at 65 is awful it seems like you are constantly fighting to keep the car straight I don! t know if it is the aerodynamics or what. I have always heard what great cars these are and I am trying to figure out why everybody is so satisfied with these.

By A D on April 7 @ 11:00 am
The Honda Accord SE Coupe
This is one of the most fun car's to drive. It comes with Honda's reliabilty and great handling. The fuel economy on the 4 cylinder is great. The car doesn't have the nip of the V6 but still delivers reasonable performance out of the 150 HP VTEC engine. In short, it is a real sweet car for its price

By Bapcha on April 7 @ 11:00 am
Accord EX 1999/4 Cyl.
I looked at both the Toyota Camry and the Accord - and with both I4 and V6 engines. My conclusiomn was that if one wanted a V6, it is better to go with a Camry. For an I4, the Accord is a better car. My only gripe - offer the Accord V6 with a manual tranny, and I will not even think about a Camry !! While the car is awesome for most practical purposes, the ride is a bit on the "jumpy" side for 4+ hour trips. The "premium" stereo is a little under- powered; and while the seats seem a bit stiff, they are great for long-distance drives - as they offer excellent support. Bapcha

By IchPokhudezh on September 29 @ 11:00 am
Good car
I've had the car for 6 months now but I still cannot find 'fav' position. The seat height adjustment is practically useless for me - I'm used to much lower seats. 5th speed is a little too far to reach. Gas pedal has a half inch of dead travel, which bothers me a lot whereas all others seem unimpressed by this problem. Seats are rather uncomfortable for longer trips and/or aggressive driving. Michelins lose grip in rain/on wet surfaces. They do not hydroplane, though. Sometimes I hear a window rattling sound but technitians could not find the reason for that. Otherwise an excellent choice for a commuter car.

By majjikdick on December 16 @ 11:00 am
1998 Accord EX --- Good, Could Be Better
The Accord offers good value, but I am not without some complaints. Despite mainly highway mileage, only 26 mpg with 4 cylinder --- not good. Have had problems with cruise control since delivery. Dealer claims no problem and after 3rd attempt refused to do anything more about it --- so much for acclaimed customer service. Finish on alloy wheels has tarnished badly and has actually "peeled" off --- again, my loss. However, the car is very dependable and offers a comfortable ride. Interior is very nicely designed and car offers driver a sense of control and confidence.

By disgruntled on September 11 @ 11:00 am
Back Window Tinting
With the increase of sport utility vehicles, it becomes a nuisance driving in front of one, with their glaring headlights shining on your eyes. Regardless if the rear view mirror has a day and night option, as in all my other vehicles, I have always tinted the back windows, which I had done to the Accord. However, the window tinting shop I went to, told me the Accord’s back window on the top has a rough black dotted exterior which when putting on a tinted film does not blend into the glass smoothly, and thus creating a bubbly look which was precisely what happened after he installed the tint.

By SSAS on September 11 @ 11:00 am
Good value!
Just got this Car, 1st Honda. Great pick-up from the VTEC 4 banger. I do not know why others feel it needs more. Handles nicely with the 15 inch wheels and front and rear sway bar on the LX. I love the stiffer suspension. Great ergonomics. I do not have to reach for 0the controls. Quite interior and roomy. Price of $17,000 for a 2002 LX auto and 2.9% was hard to pass up.

By M*A*S*H4ever on March 4 @ 11:00 am
Super Car and Very Crashworthy
I've had my '02 Accord since 1/5/02 and have loved every minute of owning it! (I previously had a Prelude for 11 years.) The ride is very smooth and comfortable on long trips. As a V-6 EX, fuel economy on the long trip was very good & about average for city driving with the "MAX AUTO" heating/cooling setting. My Accord was also the victim of an accident in January (a panel truck ran a red light and hit an oncoming car head on. This collision caused the back end of the panel truck to go airborne and land on the hood of my 2 week old car! The only damage to my Accord was a crumpled hood on the left side where the truck was resting.

By avasquez on March 4 @ 11:00 am
GREAT CAR
I HAVE NEVER OWNED A HONDA BUT SEVERAL OF MY FRIENDS HAVE..I LOVE THIS CAR!

By speedracer on March 4 @ 11:00 am
Best Coupe for the money!!
Believe me, I shopped. I test drove everything from new Nissan Altima 2.5 and 3.5, Toyota Solara, VW Passat, to Acura CL 3.2 TypeS, and new Infinit G35. I even considered trucks and SUVs like Tacoma, Xterra, Frontier Crew Cab, to Lexus RX300. In the end, I still come to decide on the EX V6 Coupe and I can't be happier with my decision. The closest second runner was the Altima 3.5 which I like the smooth acceleration, but once you add up all the options you are looking at $3000 or more, plus 1st year "novelty tax". At $23,500 you have the best of all worlds: loaded safty features, luxury, style, performance and the most of all, Honda reputation and high resale value on this car.

By DON'T do it! on August 24 @ 11:00 am
Don't do it!!!
#8 on my list BUT I fell for Honda's aggressive lease program and to save a few bucks, I signed. I've been sorry ever since. Gas mileage (15-18 city) SUX! The ride is EXTREMELY rough! Sunroof opens halfway. Loose screws and rattles found everywhere. A slug could beat this 'car' from a dead stop.

By Joe Doyle on November 10 @ 11:00 am
Smooth Fast Honda
This car is great, I got a great deal on it. It came with way more features than the crappy looking Camry and was far less. It's a Honda so it will be great on resale. Motor is smooth and quiet, I have the rear wing so it looks even better. Needs heated seats and an outside temperature gauge in it though, ride is good, gas mileage is ok for a 6 cyl. Toyota is way more expensive with less standard options. Can't wait for the new pilot to come out to buy one of those also. Go Honda...your products are the best. Toyota doesn't have a robot like Honda either.

By Jeff Ohmer on August 7 @ 11:00 am
Great Car
I traded my Civic in for this car and it has been a great purchase. The car runs great, it has great pick-up and a very smooth ride. The features on the SE are perfect for me. Great for the highway and in the city. A+ in my book!

By Edward on August 7 @ 11:00 am
Best Car Most Features for Price
No blind spots! Like the power, esp. like that both front seats adjust automatically. Dash is easy to read & all functions are at your finger tips. Back seat is roomier than friends Lexus. Like ability to lock trunk, fuel, back seat & pass-thru when leaving car with valet key.

By sg101 on August 7 @ 11:00 am
3rd Honda and loving it!
Our first two Honda's were civics - reliable cars with great gas mileage. We decided to trade one in to upgrade to the Accord - needed more passenger room and desperately wanted an automatic after 8 yrs with a manual in southern california traffic. Our Accord is very roomy, good on gas mileage (our civics were better, but can't complain), and great pick-up for a 4 cylinder automatic. It actually has more power than our friend's Accord DX manual. We absolutely love Honda and can't wait till they come out with the Honda Pilot. Thinking of trading in last civic for Honda's new SUV.

By Probe8 on May 3 @ 11:00 am
Car for Life
Very good family car! Excellent reliability. Good gas mileage. Smooth and quiet handling. Financing was almost perfect and can hardly beat the rate. If you plan on having 2 to 3 kids in your family, this will be the perfect fit. One of the safest four door car I've ever thought. If you think of selling it, this will be one of the highest resale value you can find with its class.

By Too-much-money on May 3 @ 11:00 am
Honda is living on its past reputation
Test drove this car along with the American/German/Korean competition, there was no comparison. The Accord was a loud overpriced tin box. The exterior sheetmetal was'nt much thicker than a soda can with one piece flimsy plastic door handles and a cheap/chintzy interior. The car rode rough and had way too much road/wind noise. Save your 22 Gs and buy a Passat instead!

By BigBoy on May 3 @ 11:00 am
Honda's Image Is Fake
Bought this car and thought I hit the big time. Man was I mistaken. Honda has the worst warranty I have ever seen. You can never get ahold of people when you have a problem. The rear main seal started leaking at 7,000 miles. Honda loosened my oil filter and blamed it on that. The only problem is I put the oil filter on and marked it.They got cought and started to crud themselves (have tape).The windows rattle and the seats suck.The car is slow and unresponsive. Wines but does not move forward. Foreign car makers bull the reliability and probably pay people to sit around and type good things about their cars on web sites. Think about it.WHO WOULD KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.

By Bruciep07 on January 27 @ 11:00 am
Stay away from Honda of Princeton!!!!!!!
Overall, this is a very good car. It's come with it's share of problems, though. #1-Bought the car spring time. I didn't use the AC for any extended period of time until mid summer. The first time I really got to use it, about an hour into the trip, i notice that my foot was wet, and that the AC drain hose was pinched in the AC box, and had totally flooded my car via the heater vents. The dealership fixed the drain problem, but did nothing about my rotting, falling apart carpet! #2-Trans was grinding in fifth gear at 300 miles, dealer told me to "let it break in". Went back next week, no more 5th gear, and almost no reverse. 2 1/2 weeks later, and a new trans.

Still a top choice
I have close to 80k miles on this car and it hasn't shown any sign of age. With the 5-speed,4cyl, I average around 33-35 mpg and have several times bumped 600 miles on a tank of gas. This car is super-roomy and drives well with a full load. Consumer Reports honestly believes that the LX-V6 is a better choice than the EX-4cyl. I couldn't disagree more. Why give up a keyless remote, moonroof, alloy wheels and two extra speakers just for a little extra zip and a little worse gas mileage?

Wins over Altima
After test driving the Accord EX and the Altima SE many times over several weekends, I bought the Accord. Even in its 5th year, the Accord is still a better car and a better value. I got the Nissan dealer down to the price I wanted but I still went with the Accord. Why? $3,500 less with more std features, and a much better safety rating. The new style of the Altima will wear thin after its first year and people will be wishing they had waited for the 2003 redesigned Accord. I wish I could have waited myself, but my 1989 Civic (289,284 miles) couldn't last until Sept/Oct.

HONDA NEEDS A HELPING HAND
I purchased my 2001 ex v6 Accord coupe based on the assumption that Honda builds a great car. That was a tragic error. My car has gone back to the dealer no less than 30 times for rattles, no start problems, and a loose front seat. My biggest complaint is the front drivers seat slips side to side and Honda can't seem to fix under my warranty nor will they provide a replacement seat I find the seat frightening that it can't support a 160 pound person!!!! The car is nothing short of glorified tin can. Honda has done one thing quite well and that is advertising how great their cars are.

By grebby on December 5 @ 11:00 am
Some problems here
I have always driven Honda Accords. A new one every 3 years or so since 1978. Well, This 2001 is no Accord I ever knew. After 3 months, a tap-tap- tap noise under load. found it when a bolt came out from under the dash- hope nothing too important. excessive windnoise- rain on the door trim panels is awfully loud- thin metal everywhere. Going over warning ripples the entire car resonates for about 15 seconds. Honda has taken Monocoque (unitbody)Construction past its useful limits. Paint flaws visible after paint curing. Seems like they took the insight and put a bigger body on it- cheap and too light. My Last Honda- period.

By lynchmi on May 28 @ 11:00 am
Great so far
Did alot of research on this car before buying. Originally wanted a 5 spd 4 cylinder coupe but they were very scarce so I was concerned about resale. So far, everything works great and the car is a blast to drive. Also considered the Acura CL but decided the price range was too high for a coupe. Getting 23 miles around town and 27-79 on highway. This car has great, precise steering and a tight ride. My wife's 99 Maxima feels mushy after driving the Honda. Highly recommend this car.

By Routerone on May 28 @ 11:00 am
I want to like this car, but...
Purchased this car 4/14/02. In 3 weeks we heard a buzzing sound in the tranny. At the dealer, they opened the tranny and said they needed to replace a bearing. The part was ordered/installed and it was in the shop 4 days. 4 days and 100 miles later, the buzzing noise was back. Back at the dealer, I get word that Honda engineers in CA recommended replacing all the bearings in the transmission (10). The bearings were ordered and arrived in 4 days. Then, I was heard that 1 of the 10 bearings did not arrive. It's on back-order and would have to come from Japan and it's still in the shop. My 11.5 year old Dodge is more reliable.

By tonieJ on May 28 @ 11:00 am
Should of kept my old car
And thats not saying much....my old car was a beat up fifteen yr old hyundai excel with 250,000 miles. A shopping cart hit my car in the parking lot and caused $1500.00 worth of damage. Looked like it was hit by a tractor trailer....the drivers seat detatched from the body two wks later sending my head crashing into the windshield....this is a safe car?!?

By Irwinbenz on May 28 @ 11:00 am
Less reliable than a Yugo
I must admit that I listened to the hype and bought this car purely because it was a "honda". Two weeks after purchasing this car the engine started making a wheezing knocking sound shortly followed by a loud BANG! Well the loud bang turned out to be a piston ripping thru the engine block. I ended up getting a new engine, a new transmission, and a new stereo (the old one flamed out second time I used it) all this with less than 3000 miles on it. Maybe I just got stuck with a lemon, but one things for sure, Ill never buy a honda anything ever again!!

By henry007 on May 28 @ 11:00 am
So far so good
I'm reaching my 100 miles odometer and everything seems pretty cool. I'm learning how to use the "D3" and "D4" automatic gear , so at freeway always use D4 and once I get out of it I change to D3... Is that how it's used ? The only thing I'm going to buy pretty soon is a steering wheel cover to make it a little bit thicker. Is the "granitize process" recommended ? P.S. I just hope Honda keeps this body style a couple of more years so that It keeps it's value. (Civic's have a new body style) What alarm system do you recommend for this car in the aftermarket ?

By James Heck on February 21 @ 11:00 am
Accord EX V6
The Honda Accord is a fun car to drive, that still accomadates my family with plenty of room and comfort. The engine performace of the V6 VTEC is great, especially after adding the Cold Air Intake system.

By MD Tran on August 14 @ 11:00 am
Excellent Coupe!
Since I already own 2 Accord Sedans, a 1993 and a 1999, I thought I would go a different route and go with the Accord Coupe. I really like how Honda has given the coupe its own look, and the look is very nice. The back lights remind me of the Acura NSX and the overall design looks a lot sportier than its sedan brother. The interior design is pretty much the same as the sedan but it is very functional and not confusing at all. Back seat room is pretty good for a coupe, and the ride and drive is smooth and not underpowered. Overall, great car with good looks, good space, and good power for a 4 cylinder.

By MetallicaD on May 10 @ 11:00 am
Great Car.. Few Problems
The car is great, but I have had a few problems that Honda cant explain. My SRS light comes on randomly. The dealer says that the leather on the passenger seat is TOO thick and its effecting the functionality of the airbag sensor on the passenger side. Also, had an ignition cylinder problem. Resolved with service, but still. Anyone else having similar problems? Let me know.. Other than these, the car is great!

By SteveVFP on February 3 @ 11:00 am
Best Car In Its Class
I did more research before buying this car than any other. Put it side-by- side with the Chrysler Sebring, Toyota Camry, Chevy Monte Carlo, etc., and dollar for dollar you will not find a better vehicle. Sure, this is my 6th Honda, but I gave the other vehicles every opportunity to win me over, and none came close. The Camry may be a smoother ride, but it will cost you a few thousand extra to dress it up with what comes on the Accord.

By Linnymcginny on February 3 @ 11:00 am
Great Car
Traded in my 2001 Civic for this car. Glad that I did. Suspension is MUCH better and it is a much quieter car. Very happy with this vehicle. This is my first Accord, and my fourth Honda. This should tell you something about the quality of Honda.

By The Phammer on April 22 @ 11:00 am
Great looking, affordable,
Cool looking car, especially in the blue. I've only had it for 2 weeks & haven't heard any rattles & nothing has fallen off (the main problems in the other reviews, they must've just gotten lemons). Great controls lay-out, esp. the steering mounted audio controls. Should've made all seat controls powered, not just height. Also, you have to reach to grab the seatbelt. Moonroof should open more than just 3/4 of the way. I want an ashtray for trash. Also, need memory seat on driver's side to allow access to rear seats. Ride is nice as long as you don't treat the 4-cylinder as if you owned the 6-cylinder. 3 people in the back is not that comfortable.

By Dan Anderson on January 17 @ 11:00 am
Solid car, solid value
Have an '89 Camry with 220,000+ miles that's cost me less than 3 Gs--including brakes and tires--to maintain over 11 years of consistent driving. A tough act to follow. When purchasing a newby I was looking for a dependable car with reasonable gas mileage, crankdown windows, and a manual tranny. Got it in the Honda Accord for less than 13K. I've put on 18,000+ miles in 8 months w/o incident. Suprisingly large inside and out. Rides quietly and smoothly (no shimmy or pull) at 80+ mph. Excellent no-frills value from someone who believes a car is for transportation only. Would absolutely buy only 2 types of cars in the future, Toyota or Honda.

By luismacias on October 13 @ 11:00 am
Great car for the money
This is my first car and I'm very happy with my purchase. Other cars with the same level of equipment would have cost me at least $5000 more. The V6 engine is strong and quiet. The manual states that regular unleaded gasoline is needed, unlike other competing cars that require premium. Despite what others say about the 'bland styling', the car is fun to drive, its a sedan but being a Honda it has a sporty feel to it. Visibility all around is excellent with no blind spots. Fit and finish is good as well.

Boring as it may be, the reliability, quality, and smoothness for the value is unmatched. The 2003 looks like a true winner. The 03 rear looks like the Benz, and the front looks like the acura CL with the overall body shape of the Nissan Altima. The new V6 is 240HP. You want excitement from an Accord? the 03 is the closest you'll get from a midsize.

By TPKEARNEY@aol.com on December 30 @ 11:00 am
Very Disappointed
I've owned Accords for 21 years. THIS WILL BE MY LAST ONE! I've had the driver seat replaced 3 times. The cushion becomes crushed and leans to left. Honda refuses to fix it anymore. The drivers seat doesn't go back far enough, I'm only 5'10". What happened to your quality? Now small things are going. For example, overhead light doesn't come on when door opens, headlight warning buzzer and key alarm doesn't work either. The gas peddle is too high above the floor; very dangerous. Overall driver comfort/room is awful i.e. too narrow & arm resting on door lock knob(why the design change? That was dumb.) I'm already talking to the Camry salesman & will buy one.

By on September 25 @ 11:00 am
Wonderful Value for Your Money
Hondas offer great value and are the most reliable vehicles that you can buy. If you want a vehicle that is environmentally friendly, won't be worthless at trade in time, and provides a safe and comfortable environment while driving, then look at the Honda. I just bought a 2002 Honda Accord VP model. I put 1000 miles on it in three days. It has just about everything anyone really needs except power windows/locks. I paid in the $14,000-$15,000 range. If you are not adverse to a lower horsepower 4 cylinder engine, and can live without the other options I mentioned earlier, then this car will make you happy.

Ex Toyota Owner
I used to own a Toyota Solara and was content. When it was time to get a new car my mind was set on another Solara until I test drove the Honda Coupe. After the drive I clearly knew which car to buy.

more time in the shop than on the road
They got me! Yep I got suckered in by the hype of hondas being super reliable. Ive had the car a total of six months and its been in the shop more than its been on the road. Transmission problems, ac doesnt cool, numerous electrical problems and the engine developed a loud ticking noise after two months driving. I wish I never bought this car.

Second Honda, and Very Satisfied
I recently purchased a 2002 EX V6 Coupe for my daughter in college. I researched several vehicles in our price range including VW and Toyota. I was very happy with the price and service that I recieved from my local Honda dealership. The car is increadable, I added the spolier which gives the car a nice sportier look. At this point I have nothing but praise for this vehicle.

By johnf on November 24 @ 11:00 am
interior poor quality
THE INTERIOR IS WAY TOO CHEAP. I GUESS I MESSED UP BY GETTING SUCKED IN TO A CHEAP LEASE. THE ONLY THING CHEAP THAT I GOT WAS THE POOR QUALITY AND UNCOMFORTABLE SEATS. THE PRICE DOES NOPT MEAN ANYTHING IF YOU DO NOT LIKE THE CAR. I SHOULD OF BOUGHT THE VW PASSAT

Just got the 2002 Honda Accord, EX-V6 with the spoiler. Runs great, fun to drive, fog lights should be standard along with day time running lights and auto on-auto off head lights. My last car was a Chev. Monte Carlo SS, it had everything but cost much more. Good work Honda.

By Jimjam on October 2 @ 11:00 am
Top Of The Line
I recently purchased a '02 coupe 3.0 EX V-6 Accord. Saying that it has exceded my expectations is high praise considering that I conducted months of research and drove a couple hundred miles while comparison shopping. It handles like it's on rails thanks to stabilizer bars which help the vehicle to stay level in tight turns. The powerful, silky smooth, free-reving engine is a delight to drive making it feel sportier and more fun to drive than most automatic transmission vehicles. The leather seats are comfortable. The car isolates road and wind noise better than my grandmas new $50K caddy, thanks to dampening materials & subframes.

By tisaroo on March 25 @ 11:00 am

Facing the facts - I finally got a Honda
I went to get the BMW330i. Came home with an Accord V6 Sedan. What a surprise. Glad I did. Much better car. They're powerful, well designed and bulletproof. The V6 Sedan is basically the Acura TL. (My father-in- law even said he'll probably replace his 95 Legend with an Accord.) Only other car I might trade it for? 2002 CRV - but my wife got that one.

By alu on December 19 @ 11:00 am
Need improvements in ...
Own a 2001 EX 4Cyl. Overall, it is a nice car. Regret to pick black color. It looks nice at first but when there is a door ding, it shows clearly; And also it will show dirt clearly too if not washed frequently. The car is so far trouble-free. It drives nicely. The suspension is bit stiff when I feel really tired. It holds the corner or curve well with precise steering. Transmission is ok. It cruises quietly, effortlessly at 70-75mph. However, when it starts from stop, it is sluggish at 15-20mph.

By chickhien on May 24 @ 11:00 am
first time car owner!!!
I love my accord! white; tan leather is soft and gorgeous; came with mudguards, sunroof visor, pinstripe,floor mats, 18 car washes in 3 years FREE! I got my baby for 21000 out the door. All the hagglin was worth it, good thing there is 5 honda dealership within 1.5 hrs of my home. This is my family's 3rd accord, we have a '93 and '00, but this one is solely MINE (b/c I'm making all the payments for it)!!!

By cjkatc on February 17 @ 11:00 am
Great Car!
I just bought this Accord and love it!! I love the safety, reliability, and gas mileage. I commute to cover sporting events and needed a good car. The Accord though not flashy gets the job done better than any other midsize I tested. I could not beat the price of 16,000 and 4.75% financing, too good to pass up.

By Becoming a Honda Fan on July 24 @ 11:00 am
Reliable and fun
The vehicle is very well built. Honda dealer is like no other auto dealer, aimed to please. The way Handa prices the vehicle the dealer cannot easily "switch & bait" the consumers. The car is very well built. Engine (V6) is quiet and smooth with deceptively good acceleration.

By AlexVAGuy on July 24 @ 11:00 am
Sensible
I traded a 2000 Golf for this 2002 Accord after the Golf required major engine work at 12,000 miles. The 4-cylinder LEV engine could use a little more low-end grunt, but it's smooth and quiet. I'm only getting 22 MPG, mostly around town - maybe it'll improve with age. The car seems extremely well built and is great on trips - I feel like I'm driving a luxury car. It's roomy and comfortable for 4 adults, too. Got a great deal from Landmark Honda, with minimal aggravation. The Honda is smooth, quiet and pleasant - it might be a middle-aged person's car lacking in verve, but I feel like it'll never let me down.

By martyz4 on April 19 @ 11:00 am
Our First Honda
And definately not our last! We have had absolutely no problems with our Honda Accord. I love it so much we just purchased a second Honda. After numerous visits to the mechanic with our 1995 Ford Escort and way too much money on break downs we traded it in for a 2000 Honda Civic Coupe EX for our kids. I feel much safer with my daughter driving this dependable car. I will be thinking about a new 2003 Honda Accord EX for our future. Great car!

By TH83 on July 6 @ 11:00 am
A great value
After months of researching sedans in the low-$20k range I finally decided on the Accord EX V6. I've never made a better decision in my life. It's the best car out there for the money(I paid $22k). It has decent power, a smooth ride, confident handling, quality interior materials, great seats, bland- but-tasteful styling and Honda's well- known reputation for reliability.

By Dismayed on September 22 @ 11:00 am
Bewildered
I've been a Honda owner since 1986. Moved up to the EX-V6 with some reservations due to sticker price but got a really good deal I couldn't pass up. On the way home from the dealer that is 125 miles from my home my wife thought the car wasn't running right. It took a few days to determine but sure enough there is a major acceleration problem that has gotten worse over the 3 weeks of ownership. Had the car in the shop three times and Tech Support at Honda can't figure out the problem. The jury's still out on how American Honda will correct the problem but I think another car would be in order.

By gladiator007 on June 19 @ 11:00 am

I like this car even though I am a Toyota lover. However, one can not help but fall in love with the power, features and leather seating.

By AHNYC on December 9 @ 11:00 am
Least Expensive Coup
This car is great, considering the price. I paid 16995 + 460 destination charge. I hear road noise and feel road bumps. This is usual in all midsize economy sedans.

By bostonianman on December 9 @ 11:00 am
First time car owner....love this car
It has everything you need and everything you'd think of wanting. The engine feels like your in a V6 car. Its nice to find something with power items as a standard. Gets around great in city traffic. ABS may be one thing it lacks, but once you have one of these cars...you'll forget all about wanting them. The price was very well worth it and the dealer I went through was very friendly and honest. I recommend if you get this car, make sure you extend your warranty as much as you can. Its a great starter car for someone in college or fresh out of college. Once you try it, you will not want to walk away from it.

By 8track on December 9 @ 11:00 am
Best thing I ever bought!!!
I bought about a month ago and it is even better then the test drive. I think you are foolish if you avoid looking at Honda just because everybody has one!! Isn't obvious why everybody has one!!!! Think about it!!!!

Another satisfied Honda Accord EX driver
The ride is great, quiet and smooth. My 3rd Honda in a row with NO mfgr's defects at all - great quality control. The service dept is quick, reasonable and reliable, about 1/2 the cost of a Nissan for any given task/service. This was my main reason for switching, after 25yrs driving Z-cars. The interior is immaculate, and looks like a much more expensive car - we'll keep this one for quite a while. Braking (ABS) is great and the car inspires confidence when driving. Gets the advertised mpg, both on the road and in town.

It may be plain but the Accord is consistant and reliable. You would be developing a meaningful relationship with you local dealerships due to repairs and breakdowns. This was the best value I could find at $18799.

3rd one, still keeps me happy
Racked up 90+ thousand miles on my 98 when I was stupid enough to trade it for an SUV. Missed my car the whole time I was driving the SUV. Missed the handling, the sporty feel and most of all the 30+ mpg. I recommend this to anyone. Had a 97 that was traded for a CR-V which was also a great car (just not good in N.E. winters) so I recently bought my 02 EX. I've got almost 10,000 miles on it now and I have no doubt I'll be seeing another 0 at the end of that number in a few years. These things need nothing but oil chgs, brakes and tires to achieve 6 figure milage. Excellent!!!

By bdkbaz on March 22 @ 11:00 am
The Best Car I have ever owned
Not only is this the best car I have ever owned, but the dealership that I purcased it from was a pleasure from start to finish. I have 4 other Honda dealerships closer to my house, and Mahwah Honda is actuallly over the stae line from where I live. But from minute one they were helpful, informative, and fair. They bend over backwards to please me...EVEN AFTER THE PURCHASE!! I am a very good negotiator and have the resouces to find the real cost of a car (even calculating in holdback fees). I told them what I wanted to pay, they said yes..no haggle no going nack and forth with the manager..no slimy salesman tricks...High class all the way.

Good to go!!
This Honda Accord is a great over all purchase. The interior I have is aftermarket leather, in which is higher quality than the manufacturer's option. Gas mileage is great. I can drive from L.A. to Vegas and back on one full tank of gas and still have some left for the work week!! This Honda is good quality and craftmanship in comparison to some other cars in the same price range.

By Honda3 on May 22 @ 11:00 am
Please add some more metal!!!!!!!!!!
This is my 3rd Honda Accord and have had no major mechanical problems, but the sheet metal is so thin I feel like I'm riding in a cola can. My Accord has so many dents and dings from rocks and such and some of the rock chips are starting to rust. This is ridiculous!! It is a year old and rust? My Pontiac is 3 years older has twice the rock chips and no rust. Also my Pontiac has no dings. I switch off driving both cars for the same commute. Earth to Honda --- USE BETTER SHEET METAL!!!!!!!! I will never buy a honda again -- the quality has continually degraded with each accord release!

By Pman on May 22 @ 11:00 am
Good bang for the buck
The Accord is a good solid drive. For the price it _can't_ be beat. Almost everything you could want is in it.

By jerome on February 16 @ 11:00 am
Highly recommended
Got for the same price as a Saturn L300, (V6), and much more of a car for the money. Very smooth riding car. It is exactly what I wanted, a reliable, 4 door sedan. So what if it is bland looking. For those that want more pizzaz, opt for the coupe or another car.

2002 Accord V-6
I am pleasantly surprised how many standard options come with this model. V-6 engine, traction control, 6 CD changer, and , best of all, a thermostat climate control system are features that make this car a remarkable value at $23,500. (It is a better value than the Acura TL for example.) Previous Accords that I owned had the power windows and moon roof, so I am accustomed to those options in a car. I live in New England so the addition of traction control makes winter driving less frustrating.

By TxTn on July 21 @ 11:00 am
Buy It
Excellent Car for the money. Considered Volvo S60, Acura TL, Infiniti G35 but cost was minimum of $6k less...You get a great car without the snob appeal! Considered the Toyota Camry but could not get comfortable with dealer cost..one dealer quoted 3% over cost and was $1,000 over the price that another dealer quote 4% over invoice. Thank You Toyota...you just sold the Honda!

By Mark Springer on July 21 @ 11:00 am
The Perfect Car
This car is the best value out there. For $22,500 I got a car with good exterior styling, a great interior, impeccable fit and finish, great power, great handling, awesome reliability, and absolutely great resale value. This is my 3rd Accord - I owned a '97 LX and a '99 EX previously. I absolutely LOVE the power of the V-6 on the '02. I have test driven Camry, Maxima, Taurus, BMW 3 series, Audi A4, Lexus IS 300, Infiniti I30, Mercedes C, E & S classes (all but the Benz's at Edmunds live!), and dollar for dollar the Accord blows them all away. There is no better value out there.

By Reo Chavallos on April 17 @ 11:00 am
Really Reliable Car
I bought it in Nov 1999, and drive it tree years already. And I did not have any problems with it. It is really high reliable, quality car.

I just wanted to express my happiness of yet another honda purchase. I traded in the 1999 LX and got the EX this time. I think the new styles look like a toyota and the fact I got the 1250 rebate as well as 4.75% for 60 months. I have no regrets, I got the green this time, last time I had the huntermist. Go snatch your honda before its too late!

Solid But Uninspiring - Accord EX 5-spd
My Accord is dead-solid reliable, but the driving experience is plain-vanilla and road noise is a problem. The ride is relatively quiet on smooth pavement, but when the macadam gets coarse, it sets up quite a roar in the passenger compartment. I've experienced poor road-noise isolation in other Honda products, including a relative's Acura. My Accord also is generating a disappointing number of rattles and squeaks. Fit and finish otherwise are very good, and the quality of the interior materials is superb. If reliability and economical operation are what you're after, this is your car. If you're looking for pulse-quickening performance and silent running, look elsewhere.

Transmission only lasted 25,000
WOW! This is only car I ever had that only lasted 25,000 miles. The transmission went out at 25,000 miles, yes it was covered but that is just not right. Proble is that was not the only proble I had with this car. Good luck if you buy one.

Solid car
Excellent car. Brakes and engine are well balanced compared to most competing vehicles. The car feels solid but not heavy and moves nibly and smoothly. A better value than the Camry and without the arrogance of Toyota dealerships.

Just bought a HONDA LOVE IT!
We just bought a Accord Value Package. I orginally wanted the Accord DX, but no dealers had any, one dealer had the value package which is a DX model with a lot of options. I paid 16,300. It only comes in 2 colors silver and blue. You need to take a look at what comes standard, there is chrome trim around the windows, I thought so what until I saw the cars that had the black rubber around the windows. The automatic stick shift has a nice wood grain, of course its imitation, around it. Has a CD player and cassatte, standard. I think they forgot I have a few 8 tracks in the garage. Back seat flips down and locks so the kids can fool with it.

Excellent Family Car
Well designed and well built car. Powerful but wasteful engine (considering that it is a HONDA). Silk smooth transmission. The low rev torque is kind of inadequate. My old ford taurus has more low rev torque. Quiet ride on even road. Getting nosier on rough road. The toyota camry I test driven do not have this problem. The body is kind of dent prone. You should be very careful even when you are washing you car. One of the best value for family car. No wonder, it was the best selling passenger vehicle in 2001.

By Chris B. on November 19 @ 11:00 am
Great choice!
I think this Accord is one of the best vehicles I have owned. It has a great ride and is very comfortable. I looked at several other cars (Acura, Toyota, and Nissan) and for the price it just couldn't be beat.

By AaronS on November 19 @ 11:00 am
Too soon to tell, but . . .
I bought this car for $15,700 in August and, quite expectedly, have experienced no problems to date. The car is suprisingly spacious (my '88 Accord was about the size of an '02 Civic 4- door). Although only 150 hp, the 5- speed enables decent acceleration. For a car that won't leave you stranded on the highway, you can't beat the price (though the DX/VP is probably a better bargain if you can handle rolling up your own windows). Very easy to drive.

By HGHGHG on February 5 @ 11:00 am
Ok but............
Don't get me wrong, I like the car very much, but had a problem with the airbag light that required installation of tons of new computer parts. The only reason I would consider another honda after that is that the dealer's service was great including renting a car at their cost when it wasnt completed. I do like the car very much though

By su_dc3 on October 14 @ 11:00 am
Can't go wrong with a Honda
Its a great car and nows a great time to buy it. I love the power it has, but I haven't pushed it too hard yet because it has only 150 miles on it, but it feels strong none the less. the exterior styling is nice, much better than the 4 door in my opinion. I love the feel of leather, the seats feel great, the steering wheel is nice, and lots of compartments for your junk. The trunk is smaller than I thought, but don't really need that big of a trunk anyway. The only gripe I have is with the tail lights, kinda funky, but the rest of the car makes up for it.

By fossilboy on October 14 @ 11:00 am
Worth the extra money
Given the great deals right now on 2002 models, I spent a little extra to get the EX rather than the LX. The EX's added safety features (ABS and side air bags) plus the ammenities (6 CD changer, moon roof, etc.) made it worth the extra money.

By Johnny_cui on December 31 @ 11:00 am
Excellent car!!!!
So far so good, like it so much!!! One minus point: Mileage is 25/gallen, which is a little lower than what I expected.

By ChrisZ on June 24 @ 11:00 am
solid family sedan
I sold my '92 LX Coupe for the '02 four door before my son was born and it was a great decision. The car has a very roomy interior and ample cargo space. It drives very smoothly and the engine noise gives you a good feel of the car when you rev it up. Very quiet on the highway. Even though its not the EX the stereo is plenty loud and clear. The nose of the car sits so low and visibility while driving is excellent. I still own an 89 Lxi and that car is a dream. 120k in NYC and the engine is still purring.

By Flattop on June 6 @ 11:00 am
Honda Accord EX V6
The 2002 Honda Accord EX V6 is an outstanding automobile. No vehicle in this class gives you more "bang for the buck." It drives like a much more expensive car and the quality of workmanship is outstanding. Since driving off the Dealers lot,I have found nothing out of place or wrong with it. It drives and handles like a dream.

By kate on August 23 @ 11:00 am
LOVE MY HONDA!
this is the third Honda I have owned and the first Accord. The seating is VERY comfortable and stylish and the exterior is classy looking. Even though everyone and their brother owns one, it's easy to see why. Just a great, dependable car all around and inexpensive compared to some competing, less reliable models.

2002 SE Coupe
I absolutly love my car. I bought a black 2-door and it is beautiful. I see people in BMW's and Mercedes-Benz checking it out all the time. It handles very nice and gets good fuel economy. I have 500 miles after filling up once and i have about 5/8 of a tank left.

By StephB on September 17 @ 11:00 am
SE Coupe
This is my second Honda. I started with a 99 civic vp and decided to upgrade to an accord. All of the bells and whistles I wanted. Also less road noise than my civic. Although not as much vroom as a v-6, definately more ooomph than the civic. I've had my new accord since April and I'm very happy with what I've gotten for what I'm paying. Only disappointment is that I could not hold out till the 2003 model came out.

By AccordFan on May 9 @ 11:00 am
Great car!
Fun to drive! One of the things that sold us on the Accord EX V6 is the smoothness of the ride. The performance of the V6 is also what set this car apart from others in its class. See favorite features for more.

By The Chosen One on September 6 @ 3:00 am
RATTLES!!!
SQUEAKS: The car has a bunch of rattles coming from the sunroof area. Honda mechanics have ignored this. They say it's part of the new model intros. where you get such things. Well, the squeaks should not happen on a car this price!! I had a Toyota Corolla for 15 years and 200,000 miles running thru my years in college. NEVER (even today) have I heard a squeak or rattle! ACCELERATION: WEAK. NO torque.

By searnest on September 6 @ 3:00 am
Nice car
A nice car that has lived up to Honda's reputation of reliability so far. Very comfortable front seats for long commutes. Sound system is a little weak.

By AccordSociety Newbie on June 2 @ 3:00 am
Great! (if you ignore the wheels)
In March 2002, I picked up my '02 EX coupe with the I4 engine and M/T (in Eternal Blue). It's a blast to drive. It looks GREAT. It's comfy and sporty and just a little bit different than the other choices out there. I tested both the Dodge Stratus R/T and Toyota Solara coupes. The driver's compartments were unbelieveably cramped ...but I fit perfectly in the Honda. It's not the fastest thing off the line, but on the open roads it'll hold its own.

By hotgeorgiaguy on February 26 @ 3:00 am
Great car
Previously owned a 2001 Honda Accord LX- 4 door with 4 cylinder. I am very pleased with my purchase of 2002 Accord EX-6 cylinder with Leather. Purchased the car for less than invoice. 21500.00.

By Joy L on November 12 @ 3:00 am
My Dream Car!
I've always wanted a black Honda Accord Coupe and I've finally got it! My 2002 SE has a smooth and flawless ride that is synonymous with Honda. The woodgrain accents are sleek and add a very elegant appearance to the vehicle. The exterior paint has a high gloss and the alloy wheels give it an even sportier look.

By flasshh on October 25 @ 3:00 am
this car sucks
i bought this car my very first new one boy what a mistake the carpet had to be replaced because of leak in windshield they would not belive me until they saw the rain on my foot on a good hard rain. The console had to be fixed because it was broke.Already had to have the brakes checked for squealing. After i bought my car i was in a rental 4 times the owners would not talk to us i am very displeased. Lot of wind noise,loud motor, and the gas mileage sucks. I will be getting rid of mine as soon as i can.

By Alper on January 11 @ 3:00 am

VTEC ACCORD
BOUGHT A NIGHTHAWK BLACK '02 ACCORD 4 CYCL. 1ST OWN BRAND NEW CAR. ONLY HAD 17K ON IT. RUNS GREAT ON HIGHWAYS AND CITIES. SMOOTH TRANSMISSION. GREAT EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR DESIGN. LOVE THE STEERING WHEEL VOLUME AT THE FINGER TIP. AC IS GREAT. STEREO SOUND WITH 6 CD/CASSETTE IS BETTER THAN MOST OUT THERE. GAS MILEAGE IS GREAT! GREAT SERVICE AT FAMILY HONDA. BLACK EXTERIOR COLOR SHOWS EVEN THE SLIGHTEST SCRATCH AS A RESULT NEED TO WASH 2X A MONTH. AFTERMARKET PARTS ARE EASY TO FIND.

Honda Accord 2002 EX V6 Poor Car
In June, 2002 I decided to upgrade and get the top of the line Accord. What a mistake. I have 7000 miles on the car and to date have had the steering column and transmission replaced. If Honda is known for quality, I'd hate to see the product of the other manufacturers. Horrible car.

By Casey Rose on March 2 @ 3:00 am
What a Luxury Car Should Be
The new 2002 Honda Accord Mid-Size Luxury Sedan is the best car yet. It has all the features of a luxury car. It has a smooth ride, a sporty sound in the engine, comfortable seats, and an awesome price. The interior of the car is beautiful and luxurious. The exterior of the car is very nice. The shape of the car is cool as well. It also has an excellent navigation system.

By klowhorn on August 23 @ 3:00 am
Great car!
This is my second import, my first was a 1999 Mitsubishi Galant. This car is so much better. It is quicker off the line even though horse power ratings are the same. It rides smoother, has better construction, and better fit, finish, and quality of materials.

By phkawa on October 22 @ 3:00 am
My Honda
It only has a little over 3000 miles, ut seems to be a tarke for people. People on cell phones have run into me 3 times. Last time was in a parking lot at a stand alone Walreens. Her 1992 just suffered some Teal colored paint to her back bumper, but she almost deployed my right & left side air bag as she knocked me so hard. Moral is Don't Talk & Drive. I choose Honda after My daughter had totaled one & all 5 kids inside were buckled in & although the car was totalled the kids were all fine!

By kevsmpv on November 17 @ 3:00 am

Ninth Honda over 18 years. Best one yet.

By m&m on August 13 @ 3:00 am
cheap built
we have a 2002 honda accord and a 1992 honda accord it is amazing that honda has went so cheap as to put thin metal in the 2002 accord. and the ride is terrible and lots of wind noise... we will be trading asap...

By Steev on February 3 @ 3:00 am
Predictable is delightful
When you drive an Accord, your biggest worry.. is getting doorbashed by the coupe you park next to... and that is really, really nice. The car is common, but I personalized it, getting a white one with leather and 4-cyl manual trans (makes a smallish, economical engine quite zippy and fun). I putting on some patriotic license plate frames... it's Accord heaven.

By Yuckcord on July 27 @ 3:00 am
I expected better
When you first start the car after it has set a while it has loud engine noise,The dealership told me it is normal. Constantly adjust stering on highway. When windy you are all over the road. Seat springs made noise so they adjusted and lubed them now noise is back. Compartment door under radio broke, The idle jumps up and down sometimes, no bulletins and no codes The heater and air conditioner suddenly slow way down sometimes, The car turns over quite a bit before starting in cold weather, The fit and finish is nothing like they claim. The gas mileage is not that good. Now the brake pedal is starting to make a noise.

By Davidapennington on April 22 @ 3:00 am
Outstanding AGAIN!
I just replaced my 1993 Accourd SE (kept)170,000 miles & like new!

By dannie254 on September 25 @ 3:00 am
Come-up
I'm totally in love with this car. Perhaps it is because I'm making a come- up from a 1999 Hyundai Elantra. After replacing the transmission 7 times - yes 7 - reliability was at the top of my list of priorities. The dealership, Sussman Honda in Philadelphia, treated me well and I got a great deal. I went into the dealership ready to buy a Civic. When I saw this car, I fell in love. Not only was it an emotional buy, but it was a smart buy too! I plan to keep this one until it falls apart, but I have a newfound loyalty to Honda now.

By lemonjuice on December 12 @ 3:00 am
Best car for buy and sell
I have always driven Honda Accords, I have accord 92 with 110k miles, everything still original and still like new,and the value of the car is still good even after few years. This 2002 accord I alwyas use for a long distance traveling and very fun and comfort. Once you have driven an accord, you never want to drive another car.

By nomad on September 7 @ 3:00 am

It's powerful, edgy and fun to drive. It is home away from home.

By spooley on May 17 @ 3:00 am
Good but clunky clutch
Stylish and easy to handle. A good replacement for a 1988 MX-6. Nice interior features. Maybe a little under- powered.

By Olsparkee on March 8 @ 3:00 am
Good, but not perfect
In a nutshell, I leased for less than $300/month with zero down, a car that has almost everything I was looking for. V6 with decent power, leather but not ventilated or heated seats, decent CD player but not MP3, quiet but still too much wind noise. But I don't love it. I can't really explain why but it just doesn't grab me the way that my previous cars did even though it is the fastest and highest end car I've owned. Sad but true.

By robert kotas on October 28 @ 3:00 am
a great decision
I was wavering between Nissan Altima and Honda Accord. I am very happy about buying the Accord, as the car is built very well. Absolutely no problems after 8000 miles. I am happy about the V6, as the 4 cylinder engine feels so weak comparatively. I average 20 mpg in the city.

By wagonneer2 on March 15 @ 3:00 am
Bland but will drive forever
We have had our Accord for about a year and half (16000 mi). It is smooth, solid, and reliable. The interior is very inviting with good quality plastics. Just about everyhting is in the right place (except cup holders). Dash is much nicer to look at than Camry, Altima or other family sedans. Suspension is firmer than Camry but seems to handle better. The exterior styling is very bland, but better than the 2003 models, which have an ugly back end. This car will last forever.

By Jessie Pooh on August 18 @ 3:00 am
I LOVE MY ACCORD VP
I have had this vehicle for almost a month now and I have been extremely pleased with the vehicle. It is wonderful on gas, very fun to drive, has a beautiful exterior body, and is a smooth ride (comes in handy since i live in DC). So far,i have no complaints and hope to never have any either. So Honda, keep up the good work...you definately live up to your name in the reliable Accord.

By ALYN on February 7 @ 3:00 am
ITS A GOOD CAR, BUT NOT A GREAT CAR
Excellent gas mileage, decent sound system, relatively comfortable interior.A bit noisy on the interstate.OUR DARK BLUE PAINT HAS A NUMBER OF DEFECTS OR MISSES. Buy silver.One week out of the showroom, replaced powersteering pump. At 4000 miles winshield scarred by faulty wipers, no recourse at agency, 13000 miles, engine tappets chattering loudly.

Bought my Honda new and so far i am very pleased. have to mention The uncompromising reliability of Honda...so far 20K and not a single issue of concern. I drive alot of highway, and car rides very smooth at 75mph. spacious, I am 6'3" and fit comfortably.

By HYPE by honda on May 21 @ 11:00 am
no more Hondas
Had the Accord SE 2door 13 months. Attracted by the exterior looks, promise of GREAT mileage, Honda quality and the best lease going. Been dissappointed for 13 months. Mileage is NOT as promised, fabric is CHEAP and rubbing thin on armrest areas, light put out by headlights is so low that I use the high beams, loose screws found everywhere, constant rattle in the dash, visor mirror covers rattle when visors lowered, heater VERY slow A/C is worse, took MONTHS to coordinate rear view mirror with vertical power seat settings and "tilt" steering wheel to stop my right leg from falling asleep after 30 minutes. The dealer is less than responsive.

By Gecko8 on November 11 @ 11:00 am
Greatest Midsize to date.
This car has it all, it has the reliability, the fuel economy and power for a car its size, and the leather and cushy interior makes it feel like a luxery car. I never had one problem with this car, and it is my first foreign purchase. I now am looking to buy nothing but Honda because my experience w/this car has been nothing but great.

By jacobwallace on August 7 @ 11:00 am
Another great Honda
Loved my 97 Civic so much I bought my wife an 02 Accord EX. Fun to drive, roomy interior, huge trunk. Plenty of features, as usual on EXs. Realiability has been great so far, but it's only got 3900 miles. Transmission shifts perfectly smooth, doors shut with that great vault "thud". The dealer we bought from, South Tacoma Honda, in Tacoma, WA, has a great internet sales program - NO ONE else in the area would even match their FIRST offer via email - I didn't believe it, so I wasted 3 days trying to shop their offer around before I finally bought from them.

By HKH on January 29 @ 11:00 am
Jusr for the color!
I had a 92 one before and when I wanted to change my car, I directly went to a Honda dealership. because LX doesn't come in red color, I got the SE. it doesn't have anything more than LX in performance but I love the alloy wheels and audio system. strange thing is that, in cold weather, the car is not as smooth as it is in the warm weather! specially when it's cold, there are some rattle sounds from dashboard that dealer said it's normal!

By Robert chase on January 18 @ 11:00 am
WHAT HAPPENED HONDA?
Being a loyal Honda buyer for several years and having a short experience with an unreliable European sedan I decided to come back to Honda. I bought a 2002 Accord with all the options including leather interior and spoiler. The car has been nothing more than a complete dissapointment. The fuel economy very dissapointing as well as the ride and comfort of this car. The car is noisy and the interior appears to be put together VERY cheaply with tons of squeeks and rattles to visit the dealership over. I owned 5 Hondas before my Volvo and they were high quality cars that were comfortable and drove well. Honda what are you doing to your cars?

By faulty advertising on April 6 @ 11:00 am
cheap junk
I'm a little over a year into a 3 year lease on a Honda Accord SE Coupe. My cash will NEVER go to Honda AGAIN! Little is as promised, bad mileage, pitiful quality, most of the 150 horses appear dead, headlights offer little light, rattles and squeeks everywhere. Service will have a long list of warrenty repairs before I dump this loser later this year. LOOK ELESE WHERE!!

2002 Honda Accord SE Sedan
Overall an excellent car. Great on highway rides or around town. The build quality is excellent. Engine could be a little quieter.

By finl0474 on November 26 @ 11:00 am
just ok
this is my 5th honda since 1988, and my fourth accord. I also had a 2000 civic si. hondas are not reliable. the 88 never had any unexpected mechanical or electrical failures. my 94 and 2000 accords were mechanical and electrical nightmares within the first year. 2002 v6 ex coupe is already experiencing electrical problems and gas mileage is below the estimate, it only has 16000 miles on it. the v6 is not as powerful as it should be. but the automatic transmission is less than an adequate performer. I would rather have this car in a 5 or 6 speed manual, which was impossible to find. there are also a number of blind spots in the car.

By RDB on August 6 @ 11:00 am
Can't beat a Honda
This is my second Accord. Last one was 91 LX that I sold at 156000 miles and still going strong. This new one is so much better. Got mine late in year and was able to get for $16500 with optional side airbags,spoiler and fog lights. While I really want V6 insurance prevented it. Still very happy. This car has great and easy to use interior. Looks good on outside. Best build quality going.Good gas mileage(22city/30 highway with A/C on).

By rnrmom03 on January 9 @ 11:00 am
02 Accord Coupe EX V6
Got this car on a 2-year lease and regret we didn't just buy it outright. We lease all our cars and always love giving them back to dealership, but not this one, the dealer is going to have to pry the keys out of my deathgrip! (New baby won't let us keep it) The power is pretty good for 200 horsies and an automatic. Great all around car for non-family types; add the suggested improvements below and it would be unbeatable. No wonder you see them everywhere.

By jhebrink on March 10 @ 11:00 am
02' Honda Accord Coupe
Overall, very positive. Although the fuel economy was a bit disappointing. I would sacrifice fuel economy for the V6 though. Very comfortable ride for a 45 mile each way daily commute. '0' maintenance problems I think it says alot about the car that one of my suggested improvements is as petty as cup holder placement.

By Steve Swafford on December 4 @ 11:00 am
Beware the Paint
I like the car, we own the EX-L with all the goodies except the V-6. It's a nice car but we've had really bad luck with the paint. In the first year, we developed a rust spot near the passenger tail light on the trunk that the dealer gladly fixed. Next, about 4 months ago I was washing bugs off the front fascia when a dime sized portion of paint sloughed off. The dealer and the district rep both refused to fix the problem saying it was likely caused by a gravel striking the material. This is kind of odd that a pebble would cause this much damage, especially when we only drive on paved roads??? Really hurt my level of satisfaction.

By iam5050 on October 20 @ 11:00 am
Great Car and Very Safe
I bought this car with 12k mls on it 5 monts ago.It now is approaching 30k. I have had no hints of problems at all. The car is very comfortable to be in for long periods of time and it handles very well. I would like to note, I was in an accident recently in this vehicle and it held up remarkably. I was rearended at a dead stop by an older full metal car that was traveling at 30 miles per hour.ALthough there was over 5grand in damage and sever whiplash, i think that it could have been worse. By the way, the airbags didn't pop. I like the car and would suggest it to anyone who is looking for quality at an affordable price.

Honda Accord SE 2002
This is the second Honda I have purchased and I would totally buy another in the future! This one is going to be my teenage daughter's in a few years...especially since it was rated one of the safest sedans on the road!

By sgladwin on March 7 @ 11:00 am
Another 02 going strong!!!
Only hit 25,000 miles so far, hoping to add another zero to the end of that number by the time I need a new one. Typical Honda, my forth one and still perfect for the price. Sure it'll never be a BMW, and the interior will never be a Lexus, but for $20,000 it's on par with the best of them. Mechanically flawless as usual, I continue to be happy with my purchase, and would recommend the Accord to anyone

By Big daddy on August 28 @ 11:00 am
My Honda Accord
I got a wonderful deal on my 2002 Honda Accorda LX 4dr/4cy. Great gas mileage while on the open road; 33-36mpg, less than desirable in traffic; 15-20mpg. I'm hooked on its looks, have no idea why they changed its great looks, but who am I. Very quiet on the open road, the steering is right on the money, and the little four is able to tackle almost any size mountain/hill while in cruise control when the AC is off. Great overall car for the amount we paid for it $16,400 for a brand new one with 5 miles on it.

By MikeO on February 17 @ 11:00 am
Nice Car...Not crazy about Automatic(V6)
Purchased this car slightly used w/ 5k miles, honda certified. Have had small issues, brake rotors, door sticking, several squeaks/rattles which surprised me given Honda rep. Traded in Audi A4, completely unreliable, for Honda quality. Unimpressed w/ auto. trans performance (V6) overall, slow to downshift, very abrupt, sometimes bucking at low speeds. Hopefully it will be reliable overall...

So far the car runs like a champ but it does not take off like a sports car.

By Timmy D on April 18 @ 11:00 am
Excellent!!
I bought this car with 2 000 miles on it. I've put another 5 000 on it with no problems whatsoever. No rattles or sqeeks. My previous vehicle was a Ford...aka Lemon! The engine is good for a 4 cyl and the auto transmission reacts well. I'm lovin' this Honda, and I recommend an Accord to anyone looking for a sedan. Rear spoiler is a must, the car looks 10x better with it.

By Notsure on December 26 @ 11:00 am
You should know.....
I bought my 02 Ex V6 in 11/02 - I really enojy this car, but can't stop comparing it to my 91 Accord EX. No V6 with 5sp? From the first day I drove it off the lot I knew something was wrong with the transmission. 39000 miles later and out of warranty I was told it was going out. The mechanics even have a nickname for this problem "Slip and slam". Apparently this is a PROBLEM, all 00-01's are covered by an extended tranny warranty until 100K. They don't like to talk about this. The guy quotes me $4000 to repair it. WHAT???? I didn't buy that Honda Care crap,,,it's a HONDA!! The dealer picked up the tab and all is well again.

Leased new in '02......including MANY rattles, gas mileage has YET to live up to promise, screws lying loose in trunk, painted plastic bumper covers aging faster than painted metal, sunroof doesn't open all the way, fabric is wearing thin on armrests, heat/ac unit cannot be turned off, headlights put out little light at night, accelerator pedal sticks when car is first started, etc, etc. Dealer UNRESPONSIVE!

honda accord 2002
excellent engine. fuel capacity is good. great fun to drive. interior capacity deserves more though.

By srikanth on April 25 @ 11:00 am
Some what satisfied
Very nice car... Air conditioning is not acceptable in hot weather... Dealer has looked at the AC and can't find any thing amiss... Freon is supposedly okay.. This spoils the way I feel about the car... I possible not purchase another Accord..

2002 Hond Accord EX Sedan
A relible, functional mid-sized car, but not suitable for taller drivers. It has sufficient pickup for today's driving.

By kate twomey on March 21 @ 11:00 am
Sleek and silver
My third Honda Accord is the best yet in initial quality, performance and comfort. With the sunroof open or closed, on torn-up roads or highways, it's a real pleasure to drive.

Bullet Proof
I've had the 2003 Accord EX V6 more than a year and have no complaints, only praise. Not one defect, nor problem through 13 months and nearly 16,000 miles. The car is comfortable, spirited and technically superb regards engine and associated tech. Intelligently designed and excellent workmanship. I wish the more powerful engine had been available in 2002, but that's the only negative thing I have to say.

By piston_honda on July 20 @ 11:00 am
Mostly good, but with some warts
Honda always makes a great engine; no complaints there. The car is as solid as they come. The problem we had was with the interior construction. TONS of squeaking and rattling, especially in colder weather, even only a few weeks old. We had it back into the dealer more than 10 times in the first 6 months. They never could fix it.

accord se coupe 2002
a sub-class between the ex and the lx, mostly the honda folks called glorified LX big and comfy seat, the seatbelt sometime lock up too quick, especailly for the taller driver, excellent visablity cockpit. good amount of storage space. the bottemline: it's better than the lx with a little more money. however i found honda's new car isn't as solidly built as honda did years ago. it's a great communter car, it's no where near fast but it's perfect for heavy city driving, good resale valve, some what cheap to maintenan and keep, good insurance price for the teenage driver.

Can't go wrong with Accord
This is my 4th Accord. All have been excellent cars, little or no problems, even with the ones I bought used. The quality of the cars have gotten better each and everytime I have bought one. The new 2004 will be my 5th Accord. I drive in excess of 30,000 miles per year, with nothing more than an oil change. You can't go wrong with the Accord

By hondaBITES on September 15 @ 3:00 am
Buy ANYTHING BUT honda
I have TOO MANY issues with this car to list them all. Basically it's an overpriced, over hyped piece of cheap trash. Gas mileage varies seasonally, lowbeam headlights are worthless at night, paint chips when hit with an egg, interior fabric on armrests was worn thread-bare at 10,000 miles, wiper blades were replaced at less than 5,000 miles, brakes as well, 150 horses and MOST dead, dealer's attitude BITES as well. American Honda Finance has NO email address. NEVER AGAIN!

By corry williamson on May 25 @ 3:00 am
not worth it
Hondas are great cars and this one is too but lacks so much. If your going to purchase any accord buy the v6!!! its well worth the money

By Czarkat on September 5 @ 3:00 am
Honda makes a great car.
I am very happy with Honda and their service. I have had zero mechanical issues. The only con of this vehicle is the rattles in the sunroof. I have found rust on the door flashing (the shiny trim)and the dealership fixed it immediately with no fuss. I also found rust on the lugnuts and they were also completely replaced with no problems. This car has exceeded my expectations and is a very reliable, trouble-free vehicle that also looks good.

By SHERMAN on January 4 @ 3:00 am
MY HONDA
Love the car, but would like the steering to be more like my 1986 Accords.

By HEYGURL17 on October 25 @ 3:00 am
ONLY IN A HONDA!
WONDERFULL CAR; LASTS FOREVER!!!!

By back to Chevy on December 24 @ 3:00 am
suckered
Uncomfortable seating creates leg fatigue after 15 minutes even with adjustments, cheap fabrics have worn quickly, heater and a/c very slow, gas mileage is horrible (15/25), ride is akin to a buckboard, 'loose' steering at highway speeds, an annouying rattle in the dash, low beams ineffective, plastic bumper cover paint no longer matches body color, etc. Dealer less than helpful. Honda provides no email address. HATE to be in it!

By jwilson778 on August 4 @ 3:00 am
The best of the best
Great car....but..I am 6'1" and if the front seats were 2" wider and maybe 3" longer and i could fit my golf clubs in the very back of the trunk and still have room to carry the weeks groceries i wouldn't be thinking about the Pilot. Great power, so-so tires, super quality.

Beat car I ever owned

By realking on July 8 @ 3:00 am
Love this Honda
I have never owned the "best car on the road" before. Now I understand why Honda owners love Honda. Best car I've ever owned. Great engine -- more than enough power. Will never go back to American!

Honda Accord Coupe EX
It is a great car would buy one again

By Cam621 on September 6 @ 3:00 am
Peace-full Accord
There is no doubt about it, I must say that this is hands down the most reliable car I have ever owned! The Honda Accord is sturdy, powerful, and easy to drive. I have not yet had a problem with blind spots or failure of any kind. I would prefer it had a full spare, and a larger gas tank, however these minor issues do not at all deminish the aptitude of this autmobile!

By Greg Smith on April 28 @ 3:00 am
Love It Or Leave It
I truly am infactuated with my new SE, only been a month but "WOW" what a winner! Honda Vs Toyota? Do yourself a favor, both great vehicles (Toyota) $$$$$ (Honda) $$$ and more effort in Honda's interior design & style. There may be alot of them on the road however, there's a reason !!!

By Pro driver on January 22 @ 3:00 am
Drive and Drive and Drive
I would say the comfort level of the vehicle is good. It is more for the non sport enthusiast. I drive for a living with at least a 2 hour commute. I have 83,000 miles on my 2002 Accord and have had my first repair of a wheel bearing just this week. I opted for the 100,000 mile bumper to bumper but I really didn't need it. I am a very big guy and it is sometimes a little tight as I spend 4 hrs at a time on the car most days. Also I can say this car is a fantastic value for the money. At this point I am just about breaking even on my value vs. financing value as I am considering upgrading to an Acura TL.

By Jscanner1 on January 22 @ 3:00 am
Nice
I bought this car new, and have enjoyed it very much. I upgraded the air filter and found it improved the responsiveness. Very few cars have this nice styling and comfort.

By photogeek on June 10 @ 3:00 am
New Honda Fan
Great little car after driving 2 different minivans for 6 years. Gets great gas mileage, peppy little 4 cyl. engine, easy to keep clean, very sporty looking.

By 02SEfan on August 27 @ 3:00 am
Great Car
I bought this car used with 32K miles on it. Sold my 97 Accord to get it. Have not had any problems with it. It is much better than the 97 Accord. The interior is a lot roomier, the exterior is much more stylish, and the engine has a lot more get up and go. The gas mileage around town is OK at 19 MPG. I plan on keeping this car for a long time. Highly receommend it.

By ericnaz1 on August 28 @ 11:00 am
Worst car I've ever owned
21 days in the shop so far for repairs including transmission leak,rough engine idle requiring a valve adjustment and replacement of all mounts. Engine problem still not fixed and Honda's answer to the problem is to deny that it exists. Other repairs include the seat frame which was defective and rocked, major rattles requiring replacement of multiple parts and lots of foam tape and epoxy to fix, fuel gauge failed, A/c fan relay clicks constantly but never when at a Honda dealer so I'm told I have to live with it, Brakes squeal since day one. Interior panel warp and distort, arrived damages and just plain fall off

By Mikkos on June 1 @ 11:00 am
My Accord EX
This is a nice car. I'm really glad that I purchased it. I have the EX trim which is loaded with good features as ABS, Keyless entry, CD changer, Moonroof and side airbags. Although I do have some complaints. This vehicle has alot of sqeaks and rattles. The sunroof rattles alot when the sun shade is opened.

By Nothappy on November 4 @ 11:00 am
Transmission 2002 LX auto
This is our first Honda and maybe our last. We have 33k and we are on our third transmission. Carrier Baring proplems were commoon on 2000 and 2001 but I guess we come the lemon from the line. 2nd Honda traney malfunctioned and now we are getting a 3rd. We stopped buying Aerican because of quality issues but now we may by Nissan in the future. I like everything about this car except the quality of the drivetrain.

By DUPE me ONCE on April 27 @ 11:00 am
DUPE ME BUT ONCE!!!!!!
Honda cars are BOTH over priced AND over rated!!! I was promised EXCELLENT mileage (actual; 15/25), EXCELLENT build quality (rattles everywhere), EXCELLENT dealer relationship (they've as much told me to stop talking to anyone about the problems with this gas hog and to go to H$%L). After twenty six months, this Honda Accord SE Coupe is in MINT condition with 28k miles, yet last month I was allowed 12,700 on a trade in. Go figure!!!!! Dupe me but ONCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By 2nd Accord on March 4 @ 11:00 am
Great Value & Reliability for the $
Bought my '02 Accord EX V6 brand new in June '02 and have just over 62,000 miles on it. The car is the best one we've ever bought (we replaced a '95 Accord LX with 168K). We haven't had any failures and the only maintenance we've done is new front brake pads, an air filter, oil &filter changes and a trans fluid change. Two minor repairs were the black plastic on the seek button wore off (new radio under warranty) and we bent a wheel to the extent it couldn't be balanced, so it had to be replaced ($295). Don’t let the Honda dealer talk you out of using Amsoil synthetic ATF. My shifts are smoother with Amsoil than Honda Z-1.

By SC1 on September 1 @ 11:00 am
Squeaks and rattles
2.5 year old EX-L with 29000 miles. The good: love the engine – doesn’t make a lot of power but riding single or with one passenger you don’t really notice. Really nice 5-speed transmission. The bad: too many squeaks and rattles. The dealer has been cooperative, but a good dealer can’t make up for a poorly put together interior. Gas mileage of 16/23. Front rotors warped at 15,000 miles. Seats feel uncomfortable on long rides and the low beam headlights are a joke. Overall, this could have been a really nice car, but falls short because of poor quality control. After 2.5 years of trying I’ve decided to sell it and buy something else

By HateHonda02 on July 10 @ 11:00 am
JUST MY LUCK !!!!!!
OUR CAR IS A LEMON FROM DAY ONE. THE A/C MISSING DUCT WORK AND CAUSED WATER TO DRAIN INSIDE THE CD CHANGER THAT HAD TO BE REPLACED, AND NOW A BAD MOLDLIKE SMELL THAT CANNOT BE REMOVED. THE CAR FAILS TO START ON OCCASION. THE FUEL PUMP COMES ON ABOUT EVERY FIVE MINUTES WITHOUT THE KEY IN THE IGNITION BUT THE DEALER SAYS THAT IS NORMAL. THIS WILL BE THE LAST HONDA I WILL EVER OWN. BUYER BEWARE!!! THIS CAR WAS MEANT FOR THE CRASH DUMMIES.

By ChoseHondaOvrAcura on June 22 @ 11:00 am
Excellent Quality
I test drove the Acura TSX and the Acura TL before chosing this Accord with 21K miles. The TSX was a bit small and did not accelerate as smoothly as the V6 Accord. The TL is wonderful but a bit pricey and uses premium fuel. I chose the Accord with 200 HP & leather interior so I have an affordable luxury car with only 60 horses less than the TL. In average driving I won't miss the 60 HP. I considered buying a new Accord but the '02 had one owner will all the service records and price was perfect. I'm considering putting 17in wheels on it to replace the 15in that came with it.

By Darkwingduck on July 17 @ 11:00 am
Honda's Rock
Just as always, my honda accord is more realiable then any other car I have owned. I love the accord, its interrior design is top notch with comfort built in. The sleek outside is attractive, and it's performance is awsome. The only thing I would trade it in for is another honda or acura. Love the car.

By bonorch1 on January 5 @ 11:00 am
UH-OH TRANNY PROBS :-(
I HAVE HAD THIS CAR 2 1/2 YEARS.ON VACTION IN JULY THE TRANSMISION STARTED SLIPPING AT HWY SPEEDS AND OVER THE COURSE OF A WEEK STARTED TO SLIP WHILE SHIFTING.THE TRANSMISION WAS REPLACED UNDER WARRENTY WITH A REMANUFACTURED TRANSMISION.I WAS TOLD BY THE DEALER I WAS GETTING A NEW TRANS AND THAT HONDA NEVER USES REMANUFACTURED UNITS.WHEN I GOT THE PAPER WORK IT SAID REMANUFACTURED.WHEN I ASKED HIM HE SAID HE NEVER TOLD ME THAT EVEN THOUGH MY WIFE AND SON HERD HIM SAY IT.BUT THEY CAN DO WHAT THEY WANT BECAUSE ITS UNDER WARRENTY.THIS CAR HAS ONLY 18,000 MILES ON IT.ITS BEEN A WEEK WITH THE NEW TRANS SO FAR SO GOOD.

By pat357575 on July 30 @ 11:00 am
Great car so far
Had this car for a couple of months. Great car. Interior quality is not even comparable to domestics, same with reliability and gas mileage. Engine power is so-so. it gives enough power to merge in, thats about it. It could use a few more horses. If you don't want to spend allot of money on repair bills and gas, then this is the car for you

By jackie boy on March 21 @ 11:00 am
Value Info
Car is exactly 3 years since purchased in OCT '01. the 2002 model has the 3 yr warranty over and all I have is 11985 miles on it. It's the 4 cyl, SE model and in pristine condition' It's a dream car to drive and looking to sell.

By DGreen on April 4 @ 9:56 pm
Not a Luxury car, but nice for the price
Traded a 1999 Accord EX 4-cyl for a 2002 EX V-6 at closeout. Had seen internet pictures of new style '03, hated rear styling (still do!). Like improvements in 02 vs. 99: 6-CD in dash, better stereo, side airbags, better seat support in lumbar, auto climate control, better looking tail lights. 4 minor problems noted after delivery; only sunroof required 2 visits (noise, fitment). Car sometimes makes weird moaning sound like sick cow for up to 8 hours after shutdown; not taken to dealer yet. Engine power good; noise level of engine OK, gas mileage average (21-26), at least it uses regular; car has worse than average wind, tire, and road noise; handles great but very stiff city and hwy ride.
