Good car, some maint after 150k.

1992 Honda Accord LX 4dr Sedan
Orig owner. 200k+. Adequate power but won't win Indy (later V6 address this). Mileage 22-25 city, 28-30 hwy. Ride is comfy, 4+ hr trips-no aches. Good handling in summer, only okay in snow. Typical rust in rear wheel area. Kept up with routine maint. Reliable, BUT some add'l maint required likely due to age. <100k: ICU (window/elec ctrls), fan temp cable, muffler, drv door handle. >150k: right cv jnt, A/T shift cable, radiator, ac condenser, frt rotors & Ball jnts, muffler, resonator and front pipe, drv's pwr window mtr; Main relay went, only time car has broken down). Hood latch sticks. Still, despite the recent bills, I trust it more then other cars @ 200k; still a daily driver.
Reliability. Instrument layout. Comfortable ride. Balance of power and mileage. Trunk can fit a lot. Factory sound was good bang for buck.
Cup holder location, can block radio ctrl. Could handle better in snow. Early 90's Honda rust syndrome. Must remove front door trim to access speakers instead of just speaker panel. Front console/trim not the easiest to remove. A/T is satisfactory, but go with M/T if can.
