New Accessories Abound for 2003 Honda Accord

Torrance, Calif. 08/28/2002 -- The all-new 2003 Honda Accord is the most customizable Accord ever with an expanded lineup of genuine Honda Accessories, including new dealer-installed XM Satellite Radio, DVD rear entertainment system, in-dash MP3/digital media player, a hands free system for cell phones and plus size wheels and tires.
The available XM Satellite Radio delivers 100 channels of satellite radio programming that is accessible across the entire country 24 hours a day. With more than 136,000 subscribers as of June 30, 2002, XM Satellite Radio will be available October 1 on the Honda Accord, Pilot and Acura MDX.

The DVD-based rear entertainment system (available on the Accord Sedan for the first time) features a flip down 7-inch high-resolution TFT-LCD screen mounted for use by the rear passengers, a wireless remote control and wireless headphones. The system allows front and rear passengers to listen to separate audio sources and offers separate inputs for video cameras, game consoles or other devices.

The new MP3 Player will play compact discs burned with MP3, WMA or standard audio files. Offering near CD audio quality, more than 10 CD's-worth of MP3 music files fit onto a standard recordable disc.

Additional interior accessories include a 6-disc CD changer, available for the first time as a dealer-installed in-dash unit. The changer provides the convenience of a 1-din CD player with the capacity to hold six discs, yet it does not require a cartridge. A cassette player is also available as an accessory.

Also available for the new Accord is an integrated hands free system for cell phones that works with a wide variety of existing cell phone types and services in the United States. The system allows for hands free operation as the caller's voice is picked up by a microphone directed to the right front speaker. Vehicle audio systems automatically mute and resume in conjunction with the phone call, and the system is auto-answer capable. The cell phone conveniently stores in a cradle inside the Accord's console and re-charges the cell phone while in use. A wide range of cell phone adapters come with the unit.

New exterior accessories for 2003 include plus-size alloy wheel packages specifically engineered to match the Accord's suspension design, providing proper tire clearance and ensuring long service life to vehicle, wheel bearings, suspension joints and wheels. All Accords can be upgraded with 16-inch styled alloy wheels (DX and LX 4-cylinder models) or 17-inch styled alloy wheels, similar to ones available on the potent V-6 Coupe equipped with the 6-speed manual transmission.
