"Great car except the transmission oil filter is not replaceable, and therefore, about every 40000 miles you can expect to replace it with a rebuilt tranny. Otherwise fabulous, runs like new!"

"This was my mom's car and I inherited it. She drove it about 90 minutes a day, quickly racking up the miles. It is still in very good condition, and only had a few parts to replace. My brother's 1998 Honda Accord is the same way. It has fewer miles, though, and it had to have it's starter replaced just last year. His clear coat is peeling, but my mom's car's clear coat is not."

"I took care of maintenance every 3000 miles at local Goodyear garage. There was one repair I had to do (idle valve) which Honda reimbursed at 70,000 miles though the recall ended at 60K. Couple of times I changed Brakes- don't know whther it is normal wear and tear."

"Need a new transmission after 155,000 miles and my goal was to drive until 200,000 or it dies. I wanted the 200,000 to come before it died. Very bad transmission year for Honda and the recall paid for 10 yrs/109,000 miles. So us unlucky ones who went beyond that have a choice to put in a transmission that costs more than the car is worth or to buy another car. Neither are options I like. Around 120,000 miles my engine no longer ran smooth and after having it worked on by Honda experts and trying multiple things could never get it purring again like it use to. Lived with that but not happy about the transmission as I knew there was a recall and thought "I'm a lucky one and my car will last". Lasted a lot longer than other people's, but not Honda quality long."

"excellent mechanical condition according to dealer, town valued at 5001 in 2014' will get new evaluation in July - saw similar car at another dealer with not half the extras for 9000. Towns do not value at full value for tax purposes. I believe it is only valued at 70%. Of real value. I small damage I mentioned will be fixed to perfection. Never had any other accidents. If I decided to sell it I would sell to a private person. Because my insurance company valued it higher than you they are fixing it ( not totaling it). It 's a 2002 but I believe because it is a sporty car with many extras I could probably sell it for a lot more than you evaluated it.. Also has new tires. The only reason I would consider selling it is because I have a bad back and if I could afford it I would buy a vehicle that is higher from the ground so I could get in and out of it easier, too bad for me as the are way over my budget as i am a senior living on a fixed budget."
