A very good full sized car...was the Acura flagship for years until 2013 or 2014 when the RLX debuted. AWD, standard.
Standard engine is the V6...a heavy car, but very nice riding.
We see them come into the dealership with many miles over 200K.


2006 Accord EX Coupe...164k and counting..

Wow, that's some serious coin. This one is $5K+.

Does this car have a timing belt that needs replacing?

Do you work in a dealership?

Looks like it gets 20 mpg city. Is that about right?

yes, and yes.
The J series Honda engines have a timing belt.
I'd say 20-23 on the highway is pretty average, like I say, it's a heavy car, but a sweet ride.

It comes with a J series engine. It will last a long time with proper maintenance. Also, maintenance is minimal, and they use no oil.

That was the first car to have flush mounted windows. Oh yeah, 4 piston front brake calipers.

Just wondering....which model years of this Acura had issues with the V6/Automatic transmissions? Same as early 7th Gen Accords (until early '05s)?
