    You know you drive a 6th gen Accord when....

    Hit limp mode coming out of a roundabout a while ago... Didn't expect it at all. Foot to the floor, no power. Didn't quite expect it to be that low on oil.

    I want better MPG's!

    Yeah the needle will go scarily far below the line before it is actually empty. I'm currently averaging 23mpg, but that's only because the highways and interstate between my house and school/work are very hilly. On long trips of 70-75mph average I get about 29-30mpg. And that is with a P0420...

    Totaled 2000 EX 5-spd, Value?

    Yeah. $7k is pretty good. A friend of mine had a 99 EX 5spd sedan and it was totaled. They only gave him like $2k. Granted, it had 360,000 miles on it and burned oil like crazy, but the body was in relatively good condition considering no work was done to it that wasn't completely necessary.

    High Mileage 6th Gens

    Friend of mine has a 98 V6 with over 430,000 miles on the clock. I know it has the original engine, but I don't know about transmission. It shifts perfectly though.

    spoiler- yes or no?

    I really like the OEM spoiler on the sedans and coupes. I think the trunk is too long on the coupe for it to go spoiler-less, and the sedans just look less... old-peopley with a spoiler.

    6GA Member's Before and Afters

    I think the image is reversed so the car is facing the same direction. So that is actually the left side of the car.

    What'd you do to your accord today?

    Well I do 60ish miles a day between school and work and back home, and anywhere from 10-110 on weekends. And of course the interstate between my house and school is like the only one in the midwest that isn't flat and straight, meaning crap mpgeez :furious:

    What'd you do to your accord today?

    Yeah I fill mine up once every 4-7 days and its about $50 a pop. And I always fill it up, I can't stand to not full her up all the way. 22MPG FTW.

    What'd you do to your accord today?

    I've noticed that dealers really like to over charge people for these cars. This is just crazy.

    WE NEED... cincinnati

    Yeah I'm just across the river in Kentucky. For an area where literally every other car is a 6GA (there were 5 in my high school of under 175 licensed students alone), practically none of them are modified, or even driven by people under the age of 65. Most people around here are in riced out...

    What is the best sound system in any stock car you have heard?

    I was actually surprised at how good the speakers in the 6GA sounded first time I was in one. My dad's 01 Passat had the factory Monsoon sound system, which was fantastic for a stock 2001 car. I love the factory Alpine set up in his 11 Charger now, except the build quality on the rear deck is...

    What's your mileage?

    I'm averaging 22MPG with virtually 100% highway driving in my auto I4. Something is wrong somewhere...

    You know you drive a 6th gen Accord when....

    When a friend gets into your car and says "I think my mom used to have one of these."

    What'd you do to your accord today?

    Went to the junkyard and picked up a map light w/HomeLink and a valve cover. Not bad for $25.

    What'd you do to your accord today?

    Mike's Car Wash just opened about 10 minutes from my house (first one in Kentucky I think) and they were offering free car washes, so I just couldn't pass that up, especially considering it was the Works Plus wash with the tire shine and undercarriage wash. Came out better than any drive-thru...

    You know you drive a 6th gen Accord when....

    When the empty line on the gas gauge simply means that you have almost 3 gallons left to go. And the whole non-existent gas light thing.

    What'd you do to your accord today?

    Checked the oil only to realise that the poor thing is nearly empty, and there is some freshly leaked oil under where I park. Hopefully its just a bad o-ring or something else cheap...

    Whats your MPG on a full tank?

    As of recent I've been averaging about 24mpg, probably due to my completely destroyed O2 sensors. Pretty bad considering a lot of my driving is on interstates at 75ish mph. Best I ever got was 29.7 on a 670 mile journey at 70-75mph awith3 guys + luggage in the car.

    What'd you do to your accord today?

    Cracked 210,000 on the way home from SC. Then she conveniently begun burning oil.

    What'd you do to your accord today?

    Drove her 665 miles to South Carolina.

    What'd you do to your accord today?

    Got them from Rockauto.com. I got the cheapest ones they had (Pronto brand), and it was something like $5.67 for the filters and about the same again for shipping. Ordered them on a Thursday and got them on Monday. Pretty good considering how much a dealership would have charged me.

    What'd you do to your accord today?

    Popped in the new A/C filters. Needless to say, I can actually breathe in the car now.
