My Accord is a 2003 2.0 Vtec Sport with the 17 inch Penta wheels, in dark Metallic Grey. I bought it on July 1st 2007 with 49,000 miles on the clock and now, 13 months later, it has done 63,000 miles, including a trip to the south of Spain ( 1560 miles each way ).
Shortly after I bought it I noticed that the alloys had some corrosion on them so I contacted Honda customer service who agreed to pay for 2 new ones, I paid for the other 2.
This has been one of the best cars I have owned in 38 years of motoring, it's quick and flexible and easy to drive, although you do get some tramlining. Overtaking on A roads is a doddle and great fun, in fact I haven't had so much fun since my Alfa 156.In fact if it was a diesel with a 6 speed box it would be perfect.
The only problem that I have had was a front anti-roll bar link broke, however that was soon sorted. Fuel consumption is about 35 to 37, although with care I can get it up to 40. Oil consumption is non existent.
I'm thinking of changing it, purely because of the price of fuel, and I am looking at the same car only a diesel model.
I have had this car for 3 months bought it 2nd hand on 2005 Plate with a Automatic gearbox I am very happy with it looks Stunning as its the Executive Trim with Cream Lather seats and looks really nice in black has 17 inch alloys to :) driving wise its very nice and comfortable but you might find reverse parking a bit tricky don't no if its because its a big car and you have to be that extra bit careful but apart from that theres nothing else wrong with it. Petrol wise its not bad try not to drive it locally that much. Overall very nice car TOTALLY TOTALLY RELIABLE!!! Japanese Cars Rule Simply as that!!!!
The only problem with this car is that it has a cheapish image here in the Middle East. Over here, unfortunately, it's either German (now VW, though) or Lexus.
It's a fantastic motor - I had it for 15 months and it kept its value well. The car is not in the executive league, though.
It's faultless engineering-wise, a real gem (and with petrol cheaper than water here, so much the better when it comes to pushing it to the limit).
My previous car was a 320d, and when it came to swapping I decided to go for the Accord as there were a few more luxuries for the money.
At first I was really pleased with my choice - the ride is smooth, sat nav, heated seats, multi cd, etc are a plus. However it wasn't long before I began to notice several annoying rattles.
Despite several visits to the local dealership, they have been unable to cure them. Having owned the car now for just under 18 months, it is the build quality which has been disappointing.
The Accord does represent excellent value for money in terms of features and fuel economy, but I will almost certainly opt for a BMW or Audi when I swap.

Owned for 1 year, as family runabout Pros good size, general build quality, powershift gearbox, good to drive, low costs Cons handling slighly…
Had this car for 90k from new. A 56 plate. In over 2,000,000 miles driven this one has broken down the most of any car I have had. DO NOT get a 2.0…
