Default Thinking about buying a 2003 Accord...

It's a 2.0 station wagon and has 69.000 km's on it.

Any thoughts about this car, and advise on what I should
look out for would be appreciated.

Comments on all aspects of comfort and driving behavior
would also be nice.

Cheers,
Torbjorn

Waiting patiently for parts to arrive in the next few days
to start on her 91 Civic's timing belt.

I think that you're wise in keepin' a four cylinder going. I can only
see much higher fuel prices in our not-too-distant future unless the big
crash occurs, then we probably won't care.

Maybe I should compute the money I save at 45 mpg vs. maybe
30 mpg with a newer car and put the savings towards the
inevitable new car some years down the road. I dunno. My
Civic sounds great. Fluids (appearance and consumption
rates) look pretty good. I am doing the front brakes in
August, then at last maybe buying four new tires and having
an alignment (first ever) done. If that shimmy I mentioned
elsewhere disappears, or if I find a bad motor mount and
replace it, I will be in fat city. I look forward to the TB
job and wish I had a bit more time to savor it. I did the
front crank and camshaft seals in 2004 (so essentially a TB
job) and think this time things will go much quicker.

How's your '82/'83 Honda doing?

Isn't there anyone who has thoughts or experience whatsoever
on this car that they'd like to share?

Sure? Didn't think they put anything smaller than a 2.3 in accords. Or are U
in Norway. I wanted a st wag when I got my 4-door in 01, they didn't make
them. Driving behavior is excellent. Comfort is too. Have somebody lift it
and look for repaired collision evidence.
