Most reliable car I have ever had.

2002 Honda Accord

Problems are that things wear out and it costs money for them to be fixed or replaced. But this car has not needed unexpected repairs and replacements. It is very reliable. It is a 2002 and in 2016 I drove it cross country twice and had no problems. At this time it burns a little bit of oil so I usually have to add a quart about twice between oil changes but no other problems. When going cross country it had the most difficulty climbing hills (I live in a flat area so I didn't know hills and mountains would be a problem until I took the cross country trips). I had my foot all the way on the accelerator and it still would not reach the top speed allowed on the interstate when climbing uphill. It did not occur to me to put a higher grade of gas in it, that may have helped. But considering it was 14 years old and had been such a good car I just tried to take it easy and not push it when climbing hills. It was reliable in every other way so I was fine with it. I will not get rid of it until I have to because it just stops running. This is the first time I have had a Honda. I very well may never get another type car again.

My Honda is comfortable and smooth ride. Radio,CD and cassette sounds wonderful.

2002 Honda Accord EX Sedan

I love my Honda. It runs like a sewing machine. It's wonderful on Gas and maintenance is very reasonable.It's dependable and comfortable especially long rides. It's a great family car. I'm able to adjust the seats for comfort. My grandson also drives a Honda. Their reputation for being dependable, economical and known for lasting a long time if you just change the fluids it will last your for many years. The only negative thing I can say is common issue with check engine light stays on. I believe there were recalls. I check my oil and transmission fluid when needed. It's a smooth riding little car. The kids are comfortable in back seat. Oil light alerts you when needed. It has a pretty good radio, CD and cassette player. It has great sound. I like to enjoy listening to audiobooks when taking a long trip. It's equipped with seat belts front and back seats as well as air bags. The trunk space is good. Spare tire is under trunk so it's good for groceries and has a pull up button near driver's seat that opens the trunk and gas cap. I like those features.

Extremely reliable, comfortable, fun. Low maintenance, high performance.

2002 Honda Accord

Highly reliable, minimal maintenance, no costly repairs, and excellent visibility. Solid, you feel in control, responds to your actions but at the strength/speed you use. Very easy to drive. Clear controls, do not have to hunt for i.e. hood or trunk release. Cruise control easy reach. Steering wheel controls clearly labeled, easy to use. Love being able to decelerate using cruise control and not having to break. Very comfortable seats (leather), driver's seat has multiple positions (up/down, tilt seat to raise or lower knees, reclines back to just above back seat, can set firmness of back support). Am/FM radio, 6-changer CD player, cassette deck. Spacious interior, high end trim, large trunk, can fold. Down rear seat back, plenty of storage and easy access cubbies, cup holder very convenient and great size for most cups/mugs. Excellent quick acceleration. Smooth ride but still with a sporty feel. Only negative is poor gas mileage in city. Very good on highway.
