Reviewed: 2002 Honda Accord

2dr Coupe 200-horsepower 3.0L V6 4-speed automatic FWD

Why the 2002 Honda Accord?

Exterior styling

Truly beautiful lines; the last real "pretty" Honda Accord Coupe.

Interior styling

Simplicity of controls for Radio/HVAC, high quality materials

Color choices

San Merino Red is the best red paint this side of Ferrari

Price or payments

In 2001, I bought a fully-equipped Honda Accord Coupe brand new for less than $21,000.

Insurance cost

As a 30 year old with no tickets, insurance is very cheap, even with a red, 2 door, V6 engine.

Why Not the 2002 Honda Accord?

Powertrain performance

The transmission has failed TWICE for me. Also, V6 engine, while smooth, is lacking in HP and Torque.


The Accord has acceptable road noise, but as it ages, it has numerous shakes and rattles.

Reliability & durability

I bought the car so I could drive it, change the oil, and keep driving it. But from faulty fog lights, worn radio controls, two transmissions, two alternators, and numerous rattles, I have not reached my goal of maintenance-free driving and quality.

Dealer practices

Honda dealers attempt to overcharge for everything. $25 for a light bulb? YOu gotta be kidding me.
