If you can dodge the transmission bullet... by TK Fred on 08/31/2012. Trim: 2002 Honda Accord EX V6 Coupe, Owned 10 years.
Pros: The motor runs smooth as glass after 10 years and 81K miles.
Cons: The transmission needed to be rebuilt at 72K thousand miles (I am a very docile driver). A co worker of mine has the exact same year and model as my accord and he also had to have the trans rebuilt but at around 85K miles if I remember correctly. The transmission seems to be an issue with some of these cars. The breaks have always been mediocre at best, very mushy and lack of stopping power. Master cylinder died at an early age.
Overall review: If you can dodge the transmission bullet, its a great running and handing passenger car. I expect to keep it for a few more years with no further problems.

Classy car with VERY few repairs by Mr & Mrs Saelee on 11/03/2009. Trim: 2002 Honda Accord EX V6 Coupe, Owned 8 years.
Pros: Keeping in mind that this isnt a sports car, I LOVE how a soon as I touch the gas peddle I get a immediate responce. We maint. our accord very well and the engine is still strong, smooth and quite at 110k! & i dont drive like a granny. Body style still looks great for being a old car. Front hood & bumber is sporty. Trunk has lots of room. I just love how the steering is firm. Back seats have great room for a coupe.
Cons: When we first purchased this car, we both tended to peal out. Had to get used to the car. Seats have side wings that get a lot of wear sliding in and out. Not easy getting INTO the back seat (hey its a coupe). Noticed if you dont wax at least once a year paint fades (ours is great). Our CD changer took a dump - just wouldnt change cd's but radio was ok. Besides brakes, rotars, juice & tires.... We had to change to front rotors - i think from driving to seattle a few times.
Overall review: So worth the money - if you take care of a honda it WILL take care of you. Most reliable car we have owned. There parts may be more expensive to american cars BUT they have higher quality and performance. TAKE CARE OF YOUR INVESTMENT. Despite what other people say, never had any leaks or splatters, Engine or Tranny problems so far. Once my husband was first learning about A/C maint. (we live in CALI and for 3yrs straight our a/c had NO PROBLEMS until husband touched it) and over charged it. Took it into dealership-pressure off the wall bad - they told me I might need to buy a whole new system and IT WORKS GREAT! They just released pressure and got a new valve.
