    2002 Honda Accord - 2.3 SE (A4) Sedan

    Pros: handling

    Cons: slightly bland styling

    Advice: test drive both the L4 and V6 before you decide

    I drove the Camry, Accord, and Altima. The Camry & Altima were all new for 2002, but even though the Accord is 4 model years old it blows away the Toyota & Nissan in ride, comfort, and performance. Plus resale value is typically higher. If the 2002 Accord is still good enough to beat brand new designs, I can't wait until the all new 2003 model arrives!

    2002 Honda Accord - 2.3 LX (M5) Sedan

    Pros: All the power accessories standard on the LX model

    Cons: Nothing comes to mind

    Advice: Wait for special deals (we saved $3,000 off sticker)

    The wife needed a new car since the old one she had been driving finally died. I was ready to buy the car without test driving since we had owned Honda cars before. The salesman insisted that I drive it (remember the car was for the wife). I was pleasantly surprised at the responsiveness of the engine even with the automatic transmission. We were so pleased with the dealership that we returned two weeks later to buy a used Honda for our twenty year old college student.

    2002 Honda Civic - EX (M5) Sedan

    Pros: Price with ABS & Moonroof taken into consideration

    Cons: Parts broken so easily. Need to buy Honda specific coolant & engine oil supplies.

    Advice: Okay everyday car.

    Handling and brakes are good. Got used to the ventilation controls. Radio reception not good.The lights are bright enough for night driving. The button on the seat belt broke off and the H logo infront was broken by an errant shopping cart.

    Advice: do some research before purchase

    I love my 2002 Honda Accord. We got a good retail price. The car looks beautiful and runs great. So far at 2000 milage the MPG is about 22/30. The ride is smooth and comfortable.

    2002 Honda Accord - 2.3 EX (M5) Coupe

    Pros: Visibility from the front seat

    Cons: Very hard seats

    Advice: For short jaunts it's ideal but not for trips.

    The 4 cyl, 150 HP engine is very responsive. Car is ideal in every way. Please read Mark from Texas' review. I agree with him 100% This car is a fantastic value for the price but the seats are terribly hard. The Honda folks should be ashamed but then maybe Japanese behinds are different than ours

    2002 Honda Civic - LX (M5) Sedan

    Pros: The ride - choppy, but responsive. You can't feel the gears shift in automatic.

    Cons: The seats are uncomfortable, rear of car is ugly.

    Advice: The best in its class - best resale too.

    Test drove the Nissan Sentra and Toyota Echo too. The Echo felt really cheap, and the Sentra, even with 10 more horsepower, performed poorly. Mazda's commercials kept me from even test driving the protege. The better-looking Sentra was cheaper with the same features and good reliability, but so-so resale and sluggish performance. The echo was too expensive and came with NO features. The civic was the best hands-down, but if Nissan can sell the same car with the same features for less, so should Honda. Why Honda discontinued the hatchback, I have no idea - it was their best-selling, best looking model. Everything is top quality the car is roomier than its competition.
