TSB's 2003 Accord vs 2003 Camry

Discussion in 'Accord' started by G.R. Aydelotte, May 12, 2004.

  1. Researching for an Accord purchase, I noticed that there are 125 TSB's
    for 03 Accords ranging from coolant in the oil pan to straining ATF
    fluid. The same year Camry XLE 4cy Auto nd they don't seem as serious.
    Could some of the difference be attributed to Honda being quicker to
    address customer complaints, etc. vs Toyota. Having owned both early
    90's makes, my gut feeling is that the two most reliable Japanese
    makes have lost quite a bit of quality edge. If I didn't want the new
    safety features like side curtain air bags, I'd be shopping for older
    used Hondas, Acuras, or Toyotas. I am repalcing a totaled 91 Accord EX
    Wagon with 215k wonderful miles. Any input is appreciated.

  2. The difference is that the Camry was redesigned a year prior to the Accord. So
    the current design was introduced as '02 model. They had a year to iron out all
    the kinks.

    My brother owns a '03 Camry and it's a fabulous car. No problems so far, after
    a year.

    How to turn off 'Maintenance Required" light:

    1. Hold trip/reset button on dash
    2. Turn key to "ON" or start engine
    3. Hold button til light goes out

    Personally, I'd go with the car that has the better suspension system
    since the car's driving attitude would be a major factor guiding my
    decision. However, the Camry is a very refined car with specification that
    compares closely to the Accord. I think, personal taste would be the
    deciding factor, instead of issues involving reliability or mechanical

    How can your brother own a car when he is about to be sent to jail.
    Didnt he sell it to pay for his defense?
