1990 Honda Accord Sedan EX 4dr Sedan


Review

I HAVE NEVER OWNED A CAR THAT WAS MORE RELIABLE THAN THE HONDA. THIS IS MY 2ND ONE AND I WOULD RECOMMEND THE 1990 MODEL OVERALL OTHERS. HONDA HAS MADE A GREAT PRODUCT. I USED TO COMMUTE 170 MILES DAILY AND NEVER DID I HAVE ANY TROUBLE. THE BRAKES HAVE BEEN CHANGED MAYBE TWICE. WHEN THE ORIGINAL ONES WERE CHANGED I WENT OVER THE TIME LIMIT AND THEY WERE REALLY STILL IN GOOD SHAPE! SHE IS ONLY NOW GIVING ME PROBLEMS BUT WHAT WOULD YOU EXPECT, SHE IS 12 YEARS OLD. THERE ARE OVER 246,000 MILES ON MY HONDA. I DON'T COMMUTE ANYMORE SO I AM UNABLE TO TELL YOU EXCEPT TO GUESTIMATE MY MILEAGE.


Favorite Features

OUTSIDE APPEARANCE-BODY STYLE IS BEAUTIFUL.


Suggested Improvements

I SUGGEST YOU LOOK A LITTLE CLOSER AT THE STARTER FOR FLAWS AND THE RACKET PINON STEERING. THE GAS MILEAGE COULD BE A LITTLE BETTER.

Review

The Accord is one of the most reliable cars out there! I have about 112 thousand miles on mine and it's running beautifully. Granted this gen is a little lacking in power, so I added an intake and exhaust! It runs great now with about 150 hp! I'm keeping this car as long as it runs! If yours is falling apart, you probably aren't taking care of it.


Favorite Features

Large displacement engine (for a 4cl) and large interior.


Suggested Improvements

Needs more power (fixed in newest Accords).

Review

Sigh... every time that i talk about my honda, I get a headache. I have a 1990 accord ex, and i have been fixing it almost bimonthly, because the damn thing is falling apart. The drive train is crap, the body is rusting out, and all of the sensors have succeded to fail at once. This car is way too expensive to fix, and isn't worth it anymore... my question to you is this... Anybody want to buy a an accord??

Review

I bought mine used from a Honda mechanic. The previous owner got rid of it b/c it started to burn oil. The problem was the rings, but the mechanics rebuilt the engine at 156k (when i bought it). It now has >313k on it. And yes, I have had to replace a few parts( CV boots, radiator, exhaust pipes, and lastly a transmission- junkyardbuy). in a word- it takes a likin and keeps on tickin.

Review

The Honda LX Accord is a great car. Always reliable, very dependable. Only item I've had to fix is the struts. This car just won't stop... If you are looking for a realiable car, think Honda. They're not the most stylish car, but will definitely be the most durable, reliable car you'll own.


Favorite Features

Dash board is laid out well. Air Conditioning is excellent. Inside is very well laid out.


Suggested Improvements

Power Door locks broke. Cup holder could be bigger.

Review

As most Accord owners will tell you, these cars keep going, and going...I've had no serious problems with it. The only costly repair was the replacement of its radio antenna. The motor that controls the retraction and upward mobility of the antenna wore down after about 9 years of constant use. Fixing that was costly. I'm tempted to see if I can keep this car another 10 years, but at the same time, I really want to get a hybrid car with double the gas mileage. It will be hard to part with my Accord, though, and I'll always have fond memories of it.


Favorite Features

I love the little coin box. I've left the car inadvertently unlocked before, and come back to find all the change still there. Also like the repeat button my car's tape deck, which automatically rewinds and repeats a favorite song!


Suggested Improvements

The turning radius in the car is not so good. Parallel parking this car is not easy. Hopefully Honda fixed that with the later models.
