2004 Honda AccordAmber Vernon - Las Vegas, NV11/11/2015
Because the overall performance, look, safety and power of the vehicle is awesome. I have had my Accord EX since 2005, bought it used with 9000 miles, and it has been in atleast 3 accidents with only body damage, nothing that was not fixed at the body shop, vehicle is still driving like day one. I have had to replace the Clutch at 120000 but It was well worth it! The only thing I would change is the fact thats its a manual, I'm ready for an automatic after 10 years of shifting, but I love my Honda and refuse to give it up!! This body style is the best ever made in my opinion!
The first week I got the car the tire pressure light came on. Now it's jerking when pulling off as well as when coming to a stop. The ride is wobbly and there are chips and dents in the paint that looks like it may have been covered with some type of filler to camouflage the imperfections. I was so excited about buying my first car that I may have over looked important details.
Beautifully looking car, BUT....This cars year, make, and model has had some SERIOUS recalls and class action suits against it. Brakes will ware down very often, needing frequent brake replacement. Burns excessive oil, and has cracks in the engine that allows oil to corrode the spark plugs. The engine will eventually give out. Had the car 3 plus years. Couldn't take it anymore so I gave it up. So i am very aware of what I'm talking about. DO YOUR RESEARCH!!
