Various Articles of the 2003 Accord Collected Here
 Date: July 29, 2002 22:51
 Submitted by:  Tuan
 Source: Motortrend, Car Connection, Edmunds, Detroit News, Canadian Driver
 Credibility Rating: N/A


From Motortrend: "Inside, the new Accords blend driver-oriented features with information-oriented technologies. The higher beltline and more prominent dashboard provide a feeling of substance and solidity to the interior." More at the link below:
http://www.motortrend.com/news/stories/020729fl.html

From Edmunds: "Our initial impression of the new Accord is favorable overall, and we expect it to be a bestseller. But Honda must take care to market the car for what it is, rather than what it thinks the Accord should be. It is a functional, safe, economical and dependable family vehicle. Some will even call it stylish. But a sport sedan? Not on your life." More at the link below:

From Canadian Driver: "The Accord was Canada's top-selling intermediate car in 2001. 2003 Accords are scheduled to go on sale in early September, 2002."
http://www.canadiandriver.com/news/020730-1.htm

From thecarconnection.com article: "If anything, Honda is putting more of a focus on safety, a clear selling point to the middle-American families that make up its core audience. A double five-star crash rating has been as much a factor in the sales surge of the Odyssey minivan as foldaway rear seats. With the Accord, Honda also expects to earn the top crash rating possible in federal tests." More at the link below:

From the Detroit News article: "Honda workers in Marysville, Ohio, and other Honda plants are instilled with what the automaker calls a "green factory" ethic that continually focuses on finding ways to reduce the use of materials and energy." More at the link below.
