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

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?

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. memphis dan
