I bought a 1992 Accord EX wagon with 155,000 miles on it. First thing to go was the master cylinder - $200+. Then the the CV joints - $150 each. Then the key lock locked the key in the ignition - $100. After replacing the CV joints it took only 15,000 miles and the left one was out. These were OEM parts mind you. Then there's the timing belt that must be replaced every 90,000 - $600. I like Hondas but I would trade it before the warranty for sure. Buyer beware. I also had a Ford Crown Vic that got 24 mpg on the road and was still going strong at 260,000 miles. Repair costs - cheap.

This car is very reliable. I went from a newer car to the 1992 Honda Accord and it was a very smart choice. I drive a lot and this car takes a beating in the HOT Florida weather. After driving it all day this car feels same way, never sluggish and no rough idle, runs like a true champ.

This car has gotten me through heavy commutes in bad-traffic Seattle, a trip cross country, and many, many rainy trips up and down I-5. It has always been reliable and the little maintenance I have had done has only been basic keep-up projects like new tires, brake pads, and oil changes.

I cannot say enough good things about
this vehicle. You put in the key, turn
it, and it always goes. It was perfect
for you young family (with dog, A/C in
the back for Clipperdog). A bit tight
now with teenagers. Incredible
realiability, nice styling, still gets
30 mpg highway. Very pleased would buy

I bought this car new and have had
little trouble other than
maintenance. Currently 138K. For
those who question the firm shift--the
auto transmission shifts firmly but
this is why it far outlasts any
smoother shifting GM transmission.
Smooth shifting comes from slipping
clutches which accelerates wear. Firm
shifts allow transmission life of 200M
or more. Very durable, reliable car.
