1990 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan


Review

I have had my Accord for almost 4 years now. I have had nothing but excellent service from this car. My honda has 324,000 miles on it and I am still getting around 25 mpg. It may be old, and not as stylish as the newer ones, but with gas so high, I will not be getting rid of this car anytime soon.


Favorite Features

Love the gas mileage, like the acceleration of a car this old and with this many miles, fun to drive.


Suggested Improvements

Need to make sure the new ones don't rust around rear fender well.

1990 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan


Review

I purchased this '90 Accord LX after reading Consumers Report and I am my sooo glad I did. It's the most reliable car I have ever experienced. Always ready to go hot or cold freezing weather. I always feel safe and very comfortable in the driver seat as well as other seats when my wife would drive it. I would do the required schedule maintenance which was quite reasonable and never a surprise. I said I would keep it until it dies. It refuses to die so I'll just sell it and give some one else a go with it and get a new '08 Accord this fall. The last few years all I've paid for are gas, oil change and insurance. Sad goodbye!


Favorite Features

ALWAYS reliable. Never a surprise or failure. Fuel effiecent, comfortable seating.


Suggested Improvements

Make this car in a 4 wheel drive and that runs on electric home plug-in charge battery.

1990 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan


Review

I purchased my '90 Accord on the advice of one of the dealers mechanics. Good move on my part! After 16 years, except for usual maintenance, all I have done is had the auto transmission rebuilt ($1200)and a radiator ($250). I still get 28-32 mpg. Some of the clear coat has come loose, but the paint gets a good rating from me too. Mine was made in Japan, not USA manufactured. I don't think it makes a difference. Overall rating 9! Would I buy again? Yes (but you do get what you pay for). If you plan on keeping what you buy, this is a good deal; drive it 'til the wheels fall off. If you are going for flash and want to trade every few years, buy a Corvette.


Favorite Features

I like the seats,I am 5'10" 180# and it works well for me.


Suggested Improvements

Make the radio channel screen easier to see in the daylight
