Not to mention that Honda really knocked one out of the park on styling this time to. Every time I see one of the EX-L V6 or Sport Models I start to drool just a tiny bit. It's not just the styling. My car has great styling. It is the way Honda made the Accord look like it was carved from one block, and the shape reminds me most of the ... Read More
"I test drove an Accord EX V-6Sdn w/nav, and was somewhat disappointed. The rode noise that I heard was unacceptable." "The Accord is not designed to complete with the TL.

Ram: It's a little complicated. If I found a dealer who would trade even up on an 09 Accord EX V-6 L Sdn W/Navigation, for my TL, I would have no sales tax involve.

I bought a 2013 Honda EXL Accord coupe about three weeks ago. I have noticed the slight jerking at low speed starts around 20 miles per hour.

Just a suggestion, you may want to weed through this sight to reach a forum that might relate to your vintage/year of Honda/Make. I believe you are posting in the 1994-1997 Accord page. Out of curiosity, I was wondering if you also had a separate AC button as well? If so is that light engaging?
Well I'd replace the brake light switch, a simple thing, and see what that does for you. Otherwise, you may need to go to onboard diagnostics.
Hello Everyone, I own a 1994 Honda Accord LX. I have had a recurring problem since I bought the car in 2004.

I have had many generations of Accords (1983, 1988, 1994, 2000 & 2009).

You could just have a vacume leak. Try this. Get some throttle body/carb cleaner, start the engine and let it idle, spray the cleaner on every hose you can find. If the engine changes it's tune (bogs) you've found your leaking hose.

Having a transmission fluid flush on an old transmission (and yours is fairly old) is a dangerous thing. It can loosen more bad things as it flushes others out.

Check out the rear/front speed sensors.
already cked vacuum leaks and the exhaust. We are thinking it has something to do with the valves. Husband (mechanic) is going to tear it down tomorrow and look at the valves. We are completely confused on this one and everyone I have talked to is stumped.
All I can think of that hasn't been mentioned is vacume leaks, intake restriction, or exhaust restriction. You may need professional help.
REPOST: It stutters on acceleration and we can't figure out what is wrong. It's not throwing a code so I can't get it hooked up to a computer to check it. So far we've checked the compression (fine) changed the spark plugs, fuel filter, checked the Map (?) sensor the O2 sensor (fine) catalytic converter (fine). Now we are thinking it's internal.

He just cleaned everything and while it was highly gunked up but it's still running the same. It's running rich too. You can tell it's loading up with fuel.
A lot of people check the valve, and not the ports. The ports are the problem more often than the valve. Mention that, and good luck.
Elroy: My husband cked the EGR the other day and said everything looked clean and OK to him. He said he'd ck out the link you gave me to see if he missed something.

I guess I was being spoiled by the cars I drive and used to drive: 1990 Acura Legend 1992 Honda Accord 1997 Honda Accord 2006 Lexus IS350 No wonder I can't stand crappy interiors... The 1994-1997 Honda Accord has better interior quality wise than the 1998-2002 version IMO. Honda did improved the 2003- version by quiet a lot though.
I would second carguy58's opinion. First impression, nice interior. The exterior though, seems very "Sonata". Then someone pointed out the new Saturn, I have to agree. Not to say it is ugly, at least much better than 2003 Accord (couldn't bring myself to that one). Instead of the somewhat failed "sporty" approach of 2003, this time Honda tried the "stately" way, just when Camry tried sporty, interesting. My score: 1990-1993: 3.5, ... Read More
Actually, Hyundai did benchmark Jaguar S-Type's rear for the previous generation of Sonata. It usually takes them two years. I started noticing that trend in 1996 (when Hyundai copied 1994 Accord's tail). And that was before I entered Hondadom.
I own a 1994 Honda Accord with a break light/rear light problem.

1994-97 Accord DX/LX didn't get VTEC, only EX did. With MY1998, DX didn't have it, LX/EX did. With MY2003, all got i-VTEC. So, it is possible that Honda will put A-VTEC only on EX, while lesser trims get i-VTEC. If EX does get 200 HP, I'm wondering what next TSX will be like.

The 1998 Accord EX-V6 (under $25k MSRP) was cheaper than the previous 1997 model ($25k and change MSRP), if I'm not mistaken. Yes, and there was a reason for it. 1994-97 Accord chassis wasn't designed to carry V6. When Honda decided to offer that choice, they had to revise the chassis which also resulted in "longer" Accords which carried V6. Costs were passed down to customers. MY1998 Accord was designed from ... Read More
hi have just getting a 1994 honda accord 4 door the fob was not working so put new battries in still no joy someone has told me it needs reset can anyone help ?
"as far as this whole business about "dramatic styling"... no, the civic sedan is not dramatic. Sorry. The coupe, yes, to a degree. I think why most people call Honda's styling bland is because their cars never make people go "Wow!! that's hot!!" The only cars they've ever done that with are the NSX and S2000." Well I think the 2004+ TL does have a little wow factor to it and ... Read More
Given that Chrysler and Dodge's ad campaign is the same "stuff" your spewing in your forum posts, I'll say they will have a tough time convincing indeed. CR doesn't agree with you that the gap has closed. Until CR agrees, I don't agree. Dodge claimed they weren't the "old" Dodge back in 1994. They were the NEW Dodge in 1994. Who's to say that Chrysler is now "new" again in 2007? ... Read More
Whoa - my friend. Our last 6 Chryslers lasted longer than our last 3 Hondas did. Interesting. Our experience with Chrysler would show that 6 Chryslers might have the combined lifespan of 3 Hondas! I'm at 174k miles on the '96 Accord, and it hasn't stranded me yet. Has it needed some repairs? Of course. Any car with that many miles will, even so-called "perfect" Honda. I've spent about $1,000 in ... Read More
thegraduate, As a certain ex-president used to say, I can feel your pain about letting that '93 EX get away from you. Your comments confirm my impressions from driving the '90 LX the other day. In spite of its slight front end vibrations, it was amazingly smooth and quiet at 70 mph. It just seemed so well put together, and this was a 167,000 mile car that needed a little TLC. ... Read More
I don't remember a non-conservative Accord since 1990. I don't mean they have been bad-looking (I'm partial to the 1994-1997 design) but they certainly have been conservative for nearly 20 years.
I know I'm biased since I have one, but the Gen 5 (1994-1997) Accord had the best combination of being unoffensive yet stylish with the shoulder line that ran the length of the car.
My first impression lends me to see this car as having the front end the Acura RL should have had. In fact, the whole shape looks better to me. Once again, the design goes back to conservative. In 1990-1993, the design was squarish. For 1994-1997, Honda played up the angles. Then, in 1998, Honda squared stuff back off, and went conservative, eliminating some character. 2003 brought a more polarizing, angular design. ... Read More
