I'm buying a new car and really looking at 2003 V6 Accord coupe. Its the
Auto tranny version, Its black, has leather seats and a sunroof, its pretty
sweet. It looks like its in great condition from the pics but it has 51k
miles. Is that too much?
Not that I dont trust Honda quality, my dad ran his old accord to 150k miles but sold it because the AC broke and the repair was more than the car was worth. I think in all 150k miles he had the oil changed 2 or 3 times. His new accord has 100k on it and runs like new, again I cant remember it ever being in the shop so i figure if I take care of this car it will last me a while.
Also are there any known problems with this car?
How is the performance and how does it handle in rain?
why do you want to know if it handles well in the rain??? if it doesnt,
then its not road legal
Or its not a good car to answer his question lol
You can probably google some of this...Check out consumer reviews and such, and as for performance, why don't you go test drive it before you buy it?
In response to his question about the rain, the car will handle as good as
the tires you put on it in bad weather. If you have bald tires, it wont
handle as well as a brand new tire.
Also, 150k miles on 2-3 oil changes is outrageous. It's that that difficult to change the oil.. :banghead:
No worries. I'm calling full BS. Changing oil every 50-75K miles is impossible. Case closed.

i know that bit, i was asking in general!!!:laughing:
Your father missed 47 oil changes. That makes him a dumbass.
Front Wheel Drive cars in general understeer if pushed too hard, especially in the rain, however there are a few exceptions, one of which being the Ford Focus, of which I actually find more oversteer than understeer....especially in the wet! But I'm inclind to go with the whole "if the tyres are decent, they'll hold the road well..." scenario, however, I'm also skepticle as to whether 200bhp or more is too much power through the front wheels! (don't get me started on Torque steer :doh:)
