"I have a Black 02 Accord EX Coupe with all the great features. I had this car for a year now. I have no problems with it, very reliable, and great on gas. I love the NSX style tail lights from the 98-02 Accord Coupes."
"Transmission problems are a problem with this Honda model. The throw beariing went out at 70,000. The Honda dealer said it was not a problem. Took it to an indepenet mechanic that sepecializes in transmissions. He verified the
problem with the throw bearings. He had a 1999 Accord in the shop that he was rebuilding the transmission for the exact same problem and showed me ther bearings. I took my Accord back to Honda dealer with the diagnosis. They agreed to replace the trasmission, privided I pay for labor. Runs great now."
"Bought new in 2002. Had put 57,000 mile until recently when it got totaled. Not so serious accident but insurance company's decision. Got a great value back ($14,000) Ran perfectly. Repairs include rear brakes and lower ball joints. Not sure about the lower ball joints but dealer said it was failing and it was not a major expense ($500). Other than that only routine maintenance. Replace light bulbs couple of times. I would have loved to keep it for few more years but...... I wish they had a great accord hybrid. But 2007 accord hybrid is discontinued. So, got to to shop for something other than beloved accord."
