I bought the car in New Hampshire with 200,000 miles on it and drove it to Northern Michigan and back with no issues. 1100 miles one way. 33mpg. Not bad for a B-lot car. It's the 2.4 Ex-l model. The leather seats aren't the greatest for long trips. Some may find them comfortable tho. The have seat cover with gel padding that i will buy. The factory Nav is outdated but adequate. I do like the trip computer. The ac compressor sounds like it is on its way out. One of the cooling fans doesn't work. Which is making the ac suffer at a stop. But other than that seems like a good purchase. Nice to have confidence in a vehicle to put some miles behind it. I travel for work so I'll fix some mechanical quirks and test that Honda reliability. It's a new England car so has some rust. Will probably buy a southern one next time. Has hail damage. So not winning any beauty contest. But I like the Gray color.
I've purchased a number of cars from George at East Coast Auto Source over the years. I would recommend the following if you're looking at buying a salvage/repairable vehicle: 1) Choose your Auto Body mechanic FIRST prior to going to purchase a vehicle that is salvage/repairable and pay him for his time even if you DON"T BUY. Paying him $100.00 for his time might save you thousands of dollars in the long run. Take him with you to look at the vehicle you are interest in. A mechanic can identify hidden damage and cost that you as a buyer can not identify. 2) Get an estimate on parts from George (or any other salvage yard) as this is added cost to what you are actually paying for the vehicle. 3) Get a time frame on repairs from your mechanic: example: is his shop out 3 months on repairs? six months on repairs?
4) Add the cost of the vehicle, parts, repairs and time to fix and compare this amount of money and time to the same model vehicle that a dealership or private owner has for sale and analyze if the repair of the salvage vehicle is worth it....sometimes it is: sometimes it's not.
I've never had any trouble getting titles, bill of sale, or vehicles shipped upon purchase, etc from George. As indicated, have some knowledge of salvage repairable vehicles and get estimates up front and your repair experience will be much better.

STOLEN WITH 270,000 MILES!

MY HONDA WAS STOLEN FROM MY GARAGE WITH 270,000 MILES! REPLACING THIS CAR WITH ANOTHER WILL BE EASY.MILES DON'T SCARE ME! HONDAS ARE LIKE THW FOREVER STAMP
Known George for many years. I’ve done body works for 30 years . Let me school some of y’all for bashing for not knowing what your talking about. These cars are totaled out by the insurance for a reason not because they enjoy doing it. If you go and buy salvage car and rebuild it most times your going run into stuff that your not aware of. That’s just how it works whether it’s salvage or working in dealership. If your buying a salvage car thinking well I’ll put a light on it and bumper on it and away I go then in most cases your definitely wrong.Now you can save money buying salvage cars and rebuilding.But expect the unexpected because they are salvage cars totaled for a reason and don’t talk s—t when u get the unexpected. If your looking for new car then go buy one at a dealership with no issues because in the rebuilding world you got spend little money

Overall, I love the car. The interior cloth roof began to come down but vc all I had to do was staple it back and it’s fine. The radiator fan gave out 2 times it seems, it was replaced in 2013 and I just replaced it again 2022. It wasn’t expensive to replace since I did if myself but mechanics wanted to charge me $500, doing it myself was $160 The gas mileage is amazing! The power from a 4 cylinder is shocking, love it! Love the leather interior, the drivers side seat seems to be worn down a bit but that probably because it was used so much. I have 309,000 miles and it’s still going strong, I do all the maintenance on time and try to keep it in good condition. Hopefully can get 500,000 out of it!
Purchased a used 2002 accord V6 ex coupe from a friend (1st owner) with 138,000 kms. Only service he did since ownership was new tires, battery, oil changes. When I bought the car I replaced all 4 brake pads & rotors. Drove it until 150,000 kms, then replaced timing belt & water pump, front engine mount. Couple months after the rear wheel bearings got noisy was replaced. I also received a letter from Honda to recall the Takata airbags, was replaced no charge at the dealership .
At 192,000 kms oil pan started to leak a bit of engine oil, & transmission oil hose to engine leaked. Tranny oil and hose replaced. Next oil change I’ll be getting the oil pan gasket replaced.
Owned the car for 3 years ( since 2018). A friend sold the car to me for a good deal. Spent over $3,000 CAN in repairs.
Overall still a good vehicle after putting 42,000 kms since my ownership. Air conditioning still blows cold with no recharging required. Digital odometer sometimes goes blank on&off 30% of the time but comes back eventually. Factory 16” alloy wheel paint peeling off. Body paint is intact. Engine and transmission is smooth with lots of power even for today’s standard. Regarding fuel economy I get an Average of 24mpg.
I’m aware of “transmission issues” on these models thus making sure to replace tranny oil every 40-50 thousand kms with Genuine Honda fluid is important.
My recommendation for people interested in buying one is to make a vehicle checklist before hand that way you won’t miss on anything, Or if not mechanically inclined best to bring the vehicle to a shop for inspection prior to purchase.
A few years ago I bought a 3-Series flood car from these guys, and I could not have had a better experience. The staff were great, the car drove excellent, and I later got more cars from them for my family. Definitely give these guys a call.

Perfect car for a new driver or for commuting

I have only owned this car for 3 years and I got it at 270k miles. The car originally came from South Dakota so most of the suspension was rusted out. I’m at 300k now and the only issues I’ve had is from the suspension and exhaust. This car starts up with no problem even when the temperature is 15 below. All of the parts I’ve bought are ridiculously cheap and easy to replace. Perfect car for a kid to learn how to work on vehicles.
I went there looking for an 08 Subaru after talking to Tom. He was great. Showed me what I came to look at and let me check out the car completely. The whole process took about 3 hrs. and I had a great legacy in my pocket. Prices can not be beat. Happy Thanksgiving!

In 2017 I bought the car with 191,000 for $1,400. It's a Florida car, so no rust. Even though I paid dearly for a new radiator, fuel pump, and rack and pinion, I still consider it a good car. Due to age, various interior buttons and switches are dry rotting and falling apart. It has all its original factory parts-- zippy 4 cylinder engine, nice sound system, non-leaking moon roof, cassette/CD player, cold a/c, Honda rims. Its sporty and fun to drive. I just pray it'll last til I get something newer, at which time I'll donate it charity.
...how pleasant my car buying experience was. Carlos was honest, straight forward and I purchased a beautiful, solid car with confidence. I was at ease through the whole process and would absolutely go back and recommend Straight Motor Sales to anyone looking for a dealership with fairness, integrity, and quality cars.

The 2007 Honda Accord EX has gotta be my favorite car to drive, and I have had a lot of vehicles in the past. So far good luck with mine, odometer is currently at 166,798 and she still hums down the Highway at 110 with no issues and handles like a sports car.
This car will drive you and get you there for as long as u need. I bought it at 198,000 miles and it's a salvage title has no rattle s no shaking no rough road riding issues it handles very very well. It gets great gas mileage. It doesn' burn oil or fluids at all doesn't seem like previous owner or owners took too much effort in upkeep and still is very reliable. Think I might actually keep a car out of all the cars I buy it may overall be the biggest headache as far as getting my car up to legal ready on road for the salvage title but by far the best even over the all non salvage titles I get. Very good engine with only the transmission to complain about (as always I complain about transmissions) it once in a while will shift just slightly hard but most of time shifts smoothe that is my only concern. When the transmission goes so does the car. Well engineered car overall. Not a fan of any 1 or certain cars but I've owned a few of these and never to much to complain about.
I previously had a Jetta 1.8t which was fun but I'm getting older and I needed something more reliable without a Christmas tree of CEL's. I found my 02' V6 Accord and fell in love with it and I didn't do enough research before buying. Long story short I needed another trans 1 month after purchase with only 115k miles. I got a low mileage used trans and had a leaky or faulty solenoid I got that buttoned up with all new fluid and it runs great. Car is very comfortable and smooth, mpgs aren't great but I'm willing to trade for the power of the V6. I plan on keeping it for a very long time. Make sure the trans was either replaced or fixed before buying!
Dealing with a lot of dealerships throughout the years Platinum Chicago was my personal favorite. Their team was hands-on when buying my car and paid attention to every detail making the process seamless and memorable. This is the only dealership that I will use for my car buying and selling moving forward.

Purchased date 1/10/2021I purchased my 2002 Honda Accord SE sedan with 86k miles. Interior looks brand new. Exterior has one scrape on the front bumper. I paid $4100. The owner provided all receipts from the years of maintenance. First timing belt was done at 58k . There was a airbag recall that was taken care a few years ago. Other that that this car has well taken care of. I was so upset when on 12/7/20 a man ran into my 1998 Honda Accord coupe and the insurance company totalled it. I had just done the second timing belt,value job and water pump and brakes & rotors. I only had 249k miles on it and I knew it was going to make it past 400k miles. I loved my Honda. I had the transmission rebuilt at 189k miles which afterwards I never had any issues. I faithfully had the car serviced and tires rotated. That car saved my life numerus times because of the superior handling. Insurance company is only paying $2200 because of the mileage. Even though I have receipts for the recent tires and timing belt job they only allow for parts no labor. I was devastated the estimate was for over $3600 in damages. It took two weeks of driving back and forth to Sacramento looking for a reliable used car that I could afford for under $5000. I prayed for a older couple that had a older model Honda with low miles that had been well taken care of. I was running out of time with the car rental and on Sunday at 4:45 pm I tried Craigslist one more time. God delivered. This older couple had just posted the Honda with a email only. I messaged 4 times begging to be called. They called me first. The moment I saw the Silver Sedan pull up I knew it was the right car. I had just had the oil changed and after reading your reviews I now know I must have the transmission service done asap. And next will be the second timing belt at 100k. I trust Honda's product and I know as long as I take care of my car it will last for over 400k
By Brandon & Mary Jordan from Pleasant Prairie Wisconsin
My husband and I purchased a 2012 Hyundai Genesis today and Sam the sales manager was very pleasant and professional. They were very busy, but we were taken care of and walked out with the car we wanted. The first thing you should do before purchasing a car from anywhere is check underneath it for rust and leaks, check the gauges to be sure they work and the car doesn’t run hot, blinkers, lights …ect
Bring an OBD reader and check for engine issues. We are very pleased and grateful to Sam and his crew! We also received a warranty for 12 months or 12,000 miles. Very great experience! Thank you all!

I graduated from college recently and started my first job, where I now have to commute an hour each way. Bought this car at 160k miles and it works beautifully. As long as the previous owner(s) maintain the car well, you’ll find no
problems at all most likely. Shout out to Honda for making super reliable cars tho. ESKITIT
Great all around experience from the moment we walked in thank you Dan and Carlos for making it an easy process we will definitely be back for our next vehicle. We came in from Iowa and it was well worth the trip !

It's a smaller car than I normally drive, but even with its age and the mileage it's a reliable vehicle that rides smoothly. I like that it is a V6.
60 years old, 14 vehicles purchased in that time and dealing with Jasper Honda was, by far, the best car buying experience I have had. Returned calls when they said they would, fair pricing and NO surprises. This is a “say what you mean, mean what you say” organization. No question all my car buying will start with Jasper Honda

Most reliable car I've ever owned
December 2, 2020
By Bryabn from Saint Paul MN
Owns this car
This car was the most reliable car owned. Always turned on in the coldest of winters. Always performed. I'd keep this car longer if I didn't need something bigger. Highly recommend.
I currently own a 2006 Accord, Value Package, 4 cylinder, automatic. Bought the car in 2015 with 263k miles, from a lady who purchased it brand new and serviced it at Honda on time, everytime. She only sold it because she needed a SUV to tow around her grandkids. Today, I accomplished a milestone with my Accord. 400k miles!!!! The only major issue apart from regular maintenance, tires and brakes, oil changes ect, was the power steering pump went out on me at 377119. Everything works the way it should, car is quiet, fuel efficient and always reliable. Will purchase a new truck in another year or two, but I'll just let my Accord rest, I'd never trade it, it'll serve as my back up. People are amazed when I tell them the milage, they physically have to look to believe, based on how the car runs, sounds, drives and looks. Well done HONDA! A job well done.
They have helped me more than I can explain Mr.Todd is very understanding and helpful as his employees. Thanks guys although you all know me by name now.

This is the first Honda I have owned and I absolutely love my car.
I've always like to looks of the 6th gens and got mine for a smoken price from my co-worker.
This car is super easy to work on. Especially with all of the videos that are out there. I've done all kinds of upgrades to it and parts are pretty reasonable. I just did a motor swap on it. It only had 369,000 +/- miles and it still has the original automatic transmission. Infact, most of if not all the parts I have replace where original. What an amazing car.
Stylish V6 Accord in forest green. Sharp ride with a fine beige leather interior. I loved this car. She drove smoothly and had some pull in the acceleration. Roomy for bigger folks like me and well laid out in buttons, panels, etc. Sorry to have to retire the old girl. She stood by me for fifteen years.
