CarComplaints.com Notes: 1997 is the last model year in the 5th generation of Accord. Which means it's also the last model year before problems like widespread transmission failure, subframe rust and peeling paint took over.

Does the 1997 have problems? Sure it does. Any car this old will. Some owners say their engine started to cut out around 147,000 miles. That's still not bad, and getting to 200,000+ miles isn't out of the question.

Does anyone believe a newer Accord will reach 200,000 miles?

I drove my car to work then I got of and locked it with the keyless entry control. 10 minutes later the horn was blowing really loud, I opened the doors and it was full of smoke all the cables under the dashboard were burned and all the fuses burned out. The weird thing is that the same thing also happened to my friend.
