Accord LX 2.4L V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles

Alternator began not charging the battery, then suddenly it stopped completely as I was mid-intersection and nearly was hit by oncoming traffic. It was so crazy and literally should not have happened as it did. The cost of repair and towing and loss of work due to no transportation reached upwards of 2300 dollars. Ugh - I hate this damn car.

Avoid 2003 Honda Accord like the plague. So many problems: electrical, tranny out at 150k, both driver and passenger window regulators out, alternator out at 140k, engine brackets broke off at 150k. SO MANY PROBLEMS! EXPENSIVE!

I went to work yesterday and when I went to pick my car up, the car would not turn over. When I turned the key, all i got was a series of clicks. I had a tow truck try to jump the car, but it still wouldn't turn over, even after banging on the starter. I had the car towed to a mechanic, who after charging me 28.00 for a diagnostic check, told me my ale
