Model/Spec: 2.4 Exec Saloon
Year: 2003 (53)
Mileage: 148k

How long owned: Since February 2007 (had 42k when I bought it)
Problems you've had: (that I can remember)

- new clutch at ~120k.
- HID auto-levelling unit needed replaced ~70k (sealed unit making a knocking sound).
- a/c condenser needed replaced (ages ago, can't remember when).
- heatshield fell of the cat ~100k, left it.
- front O/S balljoint fell apart and replaced two months ago.
- front foglights are a bit gungy inside, but still work - to be replaced at some point.
- drop-links and bushes need replaced fairly regularly.
- door seals probably need replaced (wind noise).
- two sets of brake disks, several sets of pads.
- many, many, many sets of tyres.

Overall marks (/10): 9.5

Easily the best car I've owned - comfortable, well-spec'd and the engine is fantastic. A few expensive repairs here and there, but given the mileage and the general abuse the car's taken I've no complaints. The drop links and rear disk wear are weak points, as is the thin paint - the front of my car is stonechip-tastic :)

A very interesting idea !!

Model/spec: 7th gen Tourer Exec full spec, 2.4 iVTEC
Year: 2004 54-plate
Mileage: 80k

How long owned: 6 years (since Jan 2006)
Problems I've had:
- rear brakes keep binding (keep fixing it myself ever since the warranty expired in Sep 2007)
- clutch had to be replaced at 79k in October 2011 (fortunately the Honda Happiness price was £600 at the time)
- both lower wishbones had to be replaced in November 2010, I got a local garage to do that with OEM parts, for ~ £400
- rear bearings in the tourer are different from the saloon, thus only available from dealer at £120 each !! (I've got them but not done it yet)
- exhaust for 2.4 is also only available from dealer at ~ £250 for both boxes (did it myself)
- aircon condenser perished, dealer wanted £500 to do it, I did it myself with condenser from Unipart, for £150 incl Halfords re-gassing (and then I found a faulty relay as well, which I opened up and sprayed with switch cleaner)
- front fog lights are £200 (each) to replace at a dealer, I did both for £70 with fog lights from the USA on ebay
- rear tailgate does not open itself any more (though it will close itself)

Overall marks (/10): 6/10 .... because Honda parts and Honda labour are a shameful disgraceful rip-off

model 2.2 CDTI ex tourer
year 2005(May)
mileage 192K

problems

tailgate open sensor microswitch ( cleaned and fine since )
clutch - been slipping for ~ 50K now, think its just weak springs the torque can overcome if booted in 3/4th
paint soft as butter, marks VERY easily


reliable old bus but IMHO boring as anything, no matter how hard I try it just doesn't feel exciting or special to drive. lacking in toys for a japanese car... no fuel computer, no memory on electric seats, all things I had in my 1994 Saab 9000.....


who should buy one? anyone who wants a reliable white goods car that gets you from A-B in respectable comfort and cost. its a "good" car, just doesn't feel or make me feel special.

How long owned: 2 years and 6 months
Problems you've had: replaced battery


Overall marks (/10): 10/10

Just love it, honestly I couldn't had bought a better car for £8k. Its still a pleasure to drive. I think I'm very lucky because its ex-Honda dealer's manager's car so it was very well maintained. I've had one service done by HH and now I just order parts from them and I'm servicing it myself. Got 2 young kids and boot is spacious enough to fit in 2 buggies including one travel system which takes up a lot space.

My Accord Tourer Type S 2003 has passed the magic 100000 miles :) Still doing well since I bought it in Sept 06 with only 28k on the clock. I am even still amazed that it is still on it's original exhaust system too!!

Model: Gen 7 2.0l Sport
Year: 2003
Mileage: 127,000 ( Bought at 49,000)
Owned: 6years and 4 months

Problems:
Original battery died at 7 years.
Lost count of anti-roll bar mountings
Shed loads of dipped beam bulbs ( got better after I replaced the fuses )
Wishbone
ABS light, caused by a broken wire in the loom.

Even after 6 years I look at it when I walk across the car park at work and I love it. Sadly, however, the time has come to replace it, probably with a 2.0l ES GT.

How long owned: 3 months, 2000 Miles

Problems: Slipping 2nd gear clutch

Love the car, fast and comfortable and you know your a member of an exclusive club while your driving it. I'm actually thinking of sucking up the £2k cost of a gearbox rebuild instead of just scrapping an £800 pound car when the auto box finally implodes.

Model/Spec: 2.4 typeS estate, half leather , blue
Year: 2004
Mileage:92000

How long owned: 2 months
Problems you've had:
No real problems , full service done , clutch felt a bit nasty fresh fluid sorted it . Something will need to be done with the suspension as it is doing my head in , it's not broken it's just not right for the weight of the car .. Hondas fault .


Overall marks 7/10
Points off for road noise , suspension , lack of refinement and ridiculously awkward placement of clutch bleed nipple .
