    Default Honda Accord CF3 - how would you rate it overall

    Hi guys,

    I'm thinking of selling my Civic 2000 & going for a Accord CF3 (1998-2000 model). How would you rate the CF3 compared to the 2000 civic? Most of the cars i've found are 1.8L and automatics, though i would have preferred a manual.

    Is the CF3 easy and affordable to maintain? Are spare parts easily available? How is its fuel economy and will it run fine on cng?

    I've never driven one but i always liked it. So please do chime in with your experience of this car. How it drives and if it is a good buy compared to my current car.

    Here are some tasty accords:

    a guy was selling his a while back.. and its better than your civic in terms of power and features.. as for CNG yea you can install it and i guess spare parts might be a little harder to find since its imported

    Yeah i'm mainly worried about the maintenance costs as a friend told me that parts will be very expensive. What's a good price for a 1998-2000 model?

    Da spareparts are really expensive.....but are mostly easily available frm kabarias......cf3 is indeed a great car for its price.....cng in a cf3 wont give u more than 70 to 80km per cylinder based on my cousins experience

    i'd say go fr it. accord is a class of its own. u'll know when u'll possess one. as far as spare partsr concerned, tau kon si rozana lagti hai gari. (:

    fizz,

    It's not accidents i'm worried about. Things do tend to break down in 10 year old cars though, so it's the maintenance that worries me.

    Cf3 is one of the coolest accord to me. 98-2002 face lift model is now arnd 10-13 and 97-98 are around 8.50-10. All CF3s here are with f18 engine only few got f20. Parts are not that rare. You can find them in BG and Montgomery road. If you are getting Cf3 with less then 80k driven in nice price then go for it.

    Parts are VERY expensive coz Thai and Chinese are not avaliable. F and their sister H engines are a bit rare in Pakistan so that could be an issue aswell. Simple things like timing belt, clutch, gaskets could cost a fortune just because of being rare.
    Do check with the market and Honda folks before buying. Nice car with a nice tag though.

    @getafix

    I think cf3 is the best car u could buy in that price range....there are some in very gd conditions around here and they definitely look apart.

    at the end of the day everyone has their own reasons for buying/not buying a car...so u will get mixed opinions...For me an accord having expensive parts is a very stupid argument...because u pay price for quality....u wont need to replace that same part again after 3 months.

    I will take a more unique/Japanese/better in every sense clean 2000/01 cf3 any day over a 2004/05 civic that every tom and harry are driving (not de-grading the civic)

    bdw none of the cf3 in Pakistan would look like any of the pics you have shared, they will be with original jdm looks.

    Cheers

    Yeah part of the reason i want to go for this car is because it is not very common. My other choice would be a 04-06 civic which like you said every other person is driving.

    I'll try and do a little research to see just how expensive most parts are. The pics i posted are just for fun, of course i know a stock CF3 won't look like that. I'll probably be modifiying mine to come close to them though, if i get one.
