anything after 2002. the 4 cylinder is preferable to the 6 cylinder.the 1999-2002 accord 6 cylinders had major transmission problems. The 4 cylinder is bullet-proof. So look for a 2003 or later 4 cylinder and you'll be in great shapehope that helps

Actually, the time period for the body style was '98-'02, but the 1999 model was rated excellent in every department, including transmission, by consumer reports. In fact, '98 was rated as average, trans. wise. The major problems came in the '00-'02 Accord, with '01 being the worst. Based on consumer reports, and I have found them to be very reliable, I would recommend the '99, because there is not one thing rated below "better than average." That says a lot.
