Congratulations! If it's anything like my '00 Accord SE (actually, it's
pretty similar), it is indeed the best. I bought mine new almost 3 1/2 years
ago and I still love it.

Not too much to watch for specifically -- keep up with the maintenance,
change the timing belt when you're supposed to (change the water pump and
maybe the thermostat at the same time), use good oil and antifreeze, keep
the tires properly inflated, all the usual stuff.

Enjoy!

Paul

This car had a ignition switch recall. Check your VIN at the Honda owner's
site.
I have a 1998 which I love also.

The clock light is fragile, but it's brutally simple to replace. Don't
worry if it goes out; just pry the clock module out from the bottom,
unplug it, remove the bulb, and replace it. $2 at the dealer.

The A/C cabin filter is not the easiest thing to replace. The dealer
will charge you $110 or so for it; however, with some patience, you can
do it yourself for $10 or so (the cost of the aftermarket filters).
Take the glove box out, take the lower dash panel off (two screws under
the fuse box door, one screw under the center console, and the rest are
just pressure clips), and you're there.

The 01 and 02 Accord EX came with a nice in-dash 6 disc changer with
cassette; it should drop right in that hole in the dash. Again, a
brutally simple mod.

Coolant change every 30K miles.

I'm sure I'll think of more.

Is it an automatic? Honda extended the warantee on a few of these, but I
don't have the link on how to check, it went by VIN number
