#28 of 31 2005 Accord LX
May 22, 2010 (5:54 pm)
My 2005 Accord LX has 119,000 on it. I have replaced brakes 2x and tires 2x. I had a $3.00 oil switch replaced by dealer ($200 for installation.) I think that speaks well for the model's reliability. On Monday I am trading it for a 2010 EX, the dealer that has serviced it made me an offer I could not refuse. I will miss the LX but I am certain the EX will more than make up for it. I will report back on how the 2010 EX and I get along.

Our household owns a 2003 (manual 6 speed) and 2006 Accord Coupe Automatic, both V6s. Aside from the model freshening of the 06 which I think makes the car look even better.... (more agressive, sportier and a little more power) Both cars have been fantastic. There have been NO mechanical problems with the 06' and the oxygen sensor needed replaced on the 03' late last year. General rule of thumb though is to wait until the 2nd year of the current generation to purchase and let the manufacturer work out whatever bugs there may be.

While searching for a reliable auto I came across this Edmunds forum and just had to reply to you. I have a '94 Honda Accord EX but I've just had an accident that requires 3 to 5K for structural work (took out the lamphousing on the passenger side and pushed the metal fender into the right front tire) and so am looking for a replacement car. Emily (I figured that any auto this old and reliable deserves a name) has 293,638 miles on her and I would have gotten about 40K more had I not run into something (red face here). I've had little stuff replaced throughout the years and have kept up with the usual high-mileage bits such as timing belts, etc. I'm also obsessive about oil changes so hers' was changed every 3 to 4,000 and it seems to have paid off for me. I'm rather in a dither because I've just retired and didn't count on having to buy another car anytime in the near future. The car I had before Emily was a 1992 Acura Integra and I would still have it had someone not stolen it when I lived in Cal. (The 1992 Acura Integra be faaassst and was fun to drive on the 5 between L.A. and San Francisco!) I have no idea where to go from here because new car doesn't work for me financially and even the used Accords are way up there in price. How do you begin to look for a replacement that will take 200,000 and over in mileage without costing a fortune! As you've probably noticed I become attached to my cars. Actually, it runs in the family because no one owns a car less than 14 years old. It's not considered sporting! Oh well. I'll still have my memories. LOL.

I like my 02 V6 EXL Accord. Good Greenhouse views. Substiantial feel to metal and very comfortable seats. 126,205 miles. Sometimes tow a small bass boat. Just normal maintenance. Did have to replace 2 motor mounts at 96,000. Runs and looks like new. Cashmere color which was a color with a clearcoat. 3 coats of Meguier's wax Spring and Fall.
