terrible transmission

by
Dec 8, 2009 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 10 Recommended: No 

Pros: looks nice, fast acceleration
Cons: transmission, honda's customer service rep
The Bottom Line: DO NOT BUY! They have bad transmissions

I bought this car (mine was a v6 coupe) in 2003 with a little over 60k. It was great, for about 6 months, and the transmission started slipping. Also, the CD player wouldn't play ANYTHING I put in it, and when it did, it would skip. I had ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Nice exterior, smart exterior design, comfortable ride, dependable, minimal repairs; four doors;
Cons: Defroster sub-par; Inadequate traction in snow or ice; comes without cigarette lighter or CD player.
The Bottom Line: A good, dependable car that rides smoothly in dry weather. Virtually repair free.

I bought this 1999 Honda Accord 4-door in 2003, used, for approximately $13,999. and have not regretted it. At the time I purchased the vehicle it had around 7,000 miles on it. The car has a reputation for being somewhat generic, that is, you see ... read more

Honda heaven or Honda he(that other place). I can't tell yet!

May 22, 2008 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 30 Recommended: No 

Pros: attractive car, Honda has a reliable reputation
Cons: infamously bad transmissions in this generation Accord, tilt steering mechanism afwul, controls not intuitive
The Bottom Line: Check out a Jetta, Passat, or Camry before buying an Accord of this generation!

This review shouldn't be about an Accord at all. If you look at my username, it says Aleroluver. I have wanted an Oldsmobile Alero for their entire existence. I am in love with everything about the way those cars look and feel. However, Aleros are ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Durable,Fuel efficient,family car,nice interior,big trunk.
Cons: Exterior.
The Bottom Line: If your looking for a nice family car,that's reliable and not a gas guzzler buy a Honda Accord!

When I bought my 1999 Honda Accord back in 2002 I knew that I was in good hands because of the reputation of Honda. To be very blunt I'am a huge Honda Fan the interior of Honda is very nice, but the exterior of Honda could be a bit more attractive. ... read more

Maybe I have a bad one, but....

Apr 6, 2005 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 10 Recommended: No 

Pros: None - My Accord has been terribly unreliable, uncomfortable and expensive to keep.
Cons: This car has the durability of a potato chip.
The Bottom Line: I don't know why Honda has a reputation for reliability. My domestic cars have been much better.

Well, my experience is somewhat different than everyone else's. I bought the car in 2003 with 35,000 miles on it. As of this writing, it has 59,300. I bought it from the local Honda dealer and have had everything serviced at Honda. Over the past two ... read more

A Model to Depend On

by
Jan 15, 2005 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: very reliable, smooth, and roomier than earlier versions
Cons: limited size, a few odd safety vulnerabilities
The Bottom Line: Great car, pleased with the bang for the buck, and has lived up to its reliable reputation

If you want an ultra-reliable set of wheels, here it is. This car has blown the doors off of reliability measures overall, and specifically for engine reliability. It's a roomier version than earlier models, and runs like silk--or at least a ... read more

I'd buy it again!

Mar 2, 2004 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: V. reliable, exc. certified program, performs well
Cons: No CD player, not many features included, sedan not sporty handling
The Bottom Line: I would absolutely recommend the Honda Accord. It's reliable, comfortable, handles well, lasts a very long time - what more can you ask for?

If I had the money to buy 2 of them, that is. This Accord happens to be my third Accord. I haven't had many cars in my life because I grew up in a major city, didn't have my own car until I was 20 and in college, and have since moved back to the major ... read more

Take care of it, and it will take care of you!

Jan 19, 2004 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Silent ride, refined engines, frugal fuel economy, high resale, safety, the Honda feel.
Cons: Generic looks, popular with thieves, lack of low-end power.
The Bottom Line: If you're looking for trouble-free service, bulletproof reliability, or a comfort-zone look no further.

BACKGROUND: The redesign in 1998 marked the beginning of the Honda Accord's sixth generation, and the first time in it's history that it can truly be called a midsize instead of a compact. The 2004 Accords are now out, the second year for the seventh ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Absolutely reliable, powerful, fun to drive (Manual 5 spd). Spacious, terrific Mileage (30 Hwy!)
Cons: Fit/finish (Made in Canada)
The Bottom Line: If you get a low mileage well kept car, buy it.

One of the best deals in its class, the Honda Accord EX 150 Hp version is just fun to drive, be it a long trip or a short one. It is perfectly stable even at 120 miles per hour(you wont know the speed unless you see the speedometer!) Truly a perfect ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: TREMENDOUS GAS MILEAGE-AWESOME STYLING-SUPER PEP-RELIABLE-RELIABLE-RELIABLE!!!
Cons: LACKS ROOM-SOMETIMES DULL-THAT'S IT.
The Bottom Line: The Accord will go forever and has class and style. This coupe is not a family car at all. Go with the 4door Accord. Worth every single penny.

I own a 1999 Honda Accord LX, 4-cylinder with a VTEC engine. I bought it brand new w/ only 33 miles on it. I bought it when i was single and the minute i laid eyes on it, I LOVED IT! I was very close to buying a 99 Oldsmobile Alero, fully loaded, ... read more

Pros: No surprise comfortable transportation
Cons: Painted bumper, clutch actuator on stick shift, trunk opening to back seat.
The Bottom Line: Well designed family sedan with no surprises.

My 99 Accord LX now has about 60,000 miles on it. It is my seventh Accord LX 4 cyl. five speed stick purchase since 1985 so I am very well acquainted with the Accord LX series. This body style has a noticable increase in size over the previous LX series ... read more

Jan 23, 2003 (A Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 10 Recommended: No 

Pros: Nice looking car.
Cons: Junk tranny, doesn't live up to Honda's rep., BO-RING, lacks HP.
The Bottom Line: Avoid it like smallpox, too many problems!!! If you want a Honda, buy a Civic, 5-speed.

Just traded this car in on a new truck and I couldn't be happier. Tranny blew @ 79k miles average driving. Although Honda did eat a portion of the bill($6000-no joke), no reason to have to put a transmission in a HONDA of all things with under 100k. ... read more

Great reliable car

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Very quiet and smooth ride, reliable
Cons: None!
The Bottom Line: If you want a car with great mileage, is comfortable, roomy, and reliable I would absolutely look into getting an accord!

I bought this car brand new in '99 and I still love it just as much! It's very quiet, even when I run it at high RPM's (it's a manual). My last car was a BMW that was always having problems and cost way too much for any repairs or even a check up. But ... read more

Over 3 years and it is still a solid buy.

by
Jan 1, 2003 (A Very Helpful review)

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Build quality fuel mileage outward view high quality switches and dials excellent handling and braking
Cons: Smooth freeways seem to be even more boring than normal in an Accord.
The Bottom Line: I plan on keeping my Accord for a many more years Very high quality control at the factory and the low cost of parts should encourage used car shoppers.

After three years of ownership my decision to purchase our 1999 Accord LX has never felt better. The car is as tight and noise free as day one. The mileage has been getting even better over time. I recently measured an accurate 43 mpg on ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 40 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: Reliable, Great Ride. Better than any car in its class.
Cons: Handling, interior detailing, uninspired exterior styling.
The Bottom Line: The 99 Model should be avoided. Wait for the engineers to re-think their car.

Imagine you're sitting in your new '99 Honda Accord Sedan at an ATM and you are attempting to retrieve your bank card out of your jacket pocket. It's in your grasp and you reach out with your right hand, card in hand and poof! The bank card drops from ... read more

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: So quiet, so stylish, oh man I miss this car
Cons: Seats are a little small
The Bottom Line: I was rear-ended by a police car doing over 70 and walked away. These cars are amazing.

This is a revision of a review I wrote over a year ago. ---------- Well, my Honda Accord lived a short life, until 2 nights ago I was rear ended by a Sheriff's deputy who was traveling at a very high speed. My car was flipped upside down and ... read more
