1st Accord, definitely not my last

ReviewI've been driving this one since it was brand new, and wouldn't have bought a new Accord EX last week if I were at all disappointed with my last 10 years of driving a Honda. Engine feels just as strong as when it was new, and it's held its resale value well. Almost all maintenance was from normal wear (tires, brakes, battery). The automatic trans. needed a rebuild at 95K but it was expected with L.A. stop- and-go driving - probably the equivalent of 250K miles of "normal" driving. The only engine problem was a defective ignition component that Honda replaced free of charge long after the factory warranty expired.
Best Features2-door coupe sat low and felt more like a sports car than a family sedan, slick-looking instrument cluster. Still gets great gas mileage, 25 city 30 highway.
Worst FeaturesA heat shield under the hood would have been a good idea to keep the paint from fading prematurely due to engine heat - Honda added this to its later models.
