We bought this car new in '91 and just yesterday bought a new car to replace it. This is by far the best car we've ever owned and has been a reliability champ. Rust through in the rear fenders due to climate and winter driving are the only issues we've had over 17 years owning it. Honda is best car manufacturer in terms of reliability and quality, hands down. We just bought a new Pilot yesterday and I would be shocked if we don't get the same quality and reliability out of it as this Accord. We're donating it to charity since it still runs perfectly and still has years to go. Unfortunately, trade-in value is negligible at this point, so better to give it to a needy soul than a dealer!
Everything...just a great car: handling, braking, performance!
I bought this car with 134k on it for
just under 5 grand when i was in high
school. I figured, it's a honda so
it'll last. I had no idea. after
regular maintenance (timing
belt/waterpump, brakes, oil, etc) this
car has been very dependable. i've
replaced the radiator, tranny, and
torque converter. On the coldest days
it fires right up and takes off, no warm
up time or anything. I strongly
recommend honda to anyone!
plenty of power for a 4 banger! i have
over 250,000 miles and spun through all
four gears last week on a wet road!
i've beaten brand new stratus's, jeeps,
and i can still chirp the tires off the
line! not bad for 125 horses that are
now 13 years old!
better traction, seems to lose it all in
the snow/rain, better headlight
visibility at night.
