Default Most reliable Accord models?

Are there Accord models of certain years that have particularly good
track record for maintenance and reliability? I'm interested in the
years 1998 to 2008.

All input greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I'm quite happy with my 2001 V6. No issues what-so-ever with the vehicle.

My 2003 Accord has no repairs so far just maintenance but I read one
review once that said to avoid this year. Don't remember which one.
Unless you will do the work yourself, I'd go for a newer model like
2006 or 7. The 2008's and newer have premature brake issues.
Otherwise they are okay.

If you want a V6, stay away from the 1998-2004 models. Even the 05
models are suspect in my mind, but absolutely the 2004 models and below
are dangerous buys--that is, unless you enjoy replacing automatic
transmissions.

If you want a 4 cylinder, 2000-2002 are excellent choices.

Just to add to my post above, my Accord is a LX model, 4 cyl
automatic.

Hi Elmo,
4 years on our 2006 EX V6 and no tranny problems. Been an all-around
pleasure to drive.

Yep.

But the odds are way against anyone buying it used.
