I may be soon owning my first Honda. It will be a daily driver with no modifications. The Accord looks like it will fit the bill, but after doing alot of searches, I'm still not sure what models to stay away from. I'd like to stay under $20K, the further under the better. I've read on this forum that the 98's seemed to have problems with the auto transmissions. Was this limited to the 1998 model Accord, or were the other auto trannies in the same generation also affected? I'll definitely be going with the V6. I'd like to get an automatic, as I'll be doing ALOT of stop and go city driving. Any input/suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
