    Good afternoon to all the lads and lasses on this forum. I am new and hoping to soon be part of the Honda family. I live in the UK and looking to buy a 2005 model Type-S (2.0 petrol) soon. Hopefully someone has some advice for me as a first time Honda buyer please? Any pitfalls with this model or things to look for? Thanking you in advance.

    There's not a lot of pitfalls with the 2.0 petrol powered Accords to be honest. Look out for rust on the rear arches, this is more applicable to be the Tourers to be honest but worth checking anyway.

    Look for drive shaft wobble. If it has a Honda Sat Nav system its probably not working or will give up the ghost sometime soon.

    Check the handbrake operation as the handbrake mechanism on the rear calipers can get jammed.

    That's all I can think of memory to be honest
