Bought it in 97 with 40000 miles on it. It now has 271000 and still is going strong. No oil burning just keep up on the maintenance. Four starters, has original alternator and struts. Rear brake shoes have not been replaced yet.

I figured I wouldn't keep my new Accord for more than 10 years, tops. 16 years later it's still going strong. The only major repairs have been clutch, master & slave brake cylinders, radiator, oil seals and an engine mount. I also had the timing belt and water pump replaced twice but only as preventative measures, not because they failed. Not bad for a 16-year-old car. We kept thinking about trading it in but thought "why?" it's been such a good car. The A/C still blows cool even on the hottest days in Phoenix. It also gets excellent gas millage (30 MPG). New Accord seats are too stiff on long drives so we won't replace with a new one. They don't make them like this anymore.

I bought my Accord in 1993 and thought I would keep it 10 years max. Nearly 15 years and over 140K miles later I have no plans on replacing it any time soon. This has been the best vehicle I've ever owned. It's required relatively few repairs although it started to show it's age a few years ago needing new clutch, radiator, etc. But you I would expect to replace that kind of stuff on a car this old. The only problems I've had is with the cruise control that has acted strange from day one. Also the temperature control gets stuck after staying in the same position all summer. Too bad the new Accord's seats are too stiff and uncomfortable or I might have bought another one.

I bought my Honda used 5 years ago and
it still runs great! I have 133,000
miles on it and last year when I got
it smogged, the guy said it smogged
like a new car. Change that oil every
3,500 and this car will last forever.
Just be careful that when you change
the timing belt, have those little
cheap oil pan seals replaced at the
same time or you'll be sorry. Great

This has been the greatest car that I
have ever owned! I have owned it for
3.5 years and I have never had to
change the breaks (I down shift). It
has never left me sit. The only two
problems I have had are the power
antenna mast, and the drivers side
power window gets stuck sometimes.
Thats all! No mechanical problems at
all. I had to replace the exaust from
the cat back, but that will happen
with any car. But It's treated me
