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.
